HP made some pre-Computex announcements on Sunday as it revealed plans to release a number of new Windows 8.1 notebooks later this summer, all of which can also be used in some form of tablet mode. The new version of the HP Split x2 still allows the display to detach from its keyboard dock to be used as a big 13.3 inch Windows 8.1 tablet. The keyboard dock also serves as a second battery for the Split x2. The new version has a 500GB hard drive inside the tablet and will also have Intel's Bay Trail processors. It will go on sale in the U.S. June 29 for the starting price of $599.99.

Usually when you make a search in Windows, you need to type in exactly what you're looking for, but now phrases like "how do I install a printer?" or "get more Windows apps" will yield helpful, tailored results. The Smart Search improvement will also include predictions based on common misspellings. As you might expect, all of these improvements are made thanks to the Bing search engine.
