Microsoft and Qualcomm announced at Computex 2017 that they will be releasing Snapdragon 835 Movile PC platform on laptops & 2-in-1s with Windows 10 as the OS. The first three companies that will make such devices will be HP, Lenovo and Asus. This move will bring the best from the smartphone sector to the laptops.

The price of such devices is expected to be around $700-$800, much lower than the premium laptops people see nowadays.
