Microsoft is now selling the HP Envy x2 and ASUS NovaGo online

Announced back in December, the HP Envy x2 and the ASUS NovaGo are the first two PCs on the market to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 Mobile PC Platform. The devices have been on sale for some time now, but today, Microsoft finally listed them on its online Store.

There's a new Always Connected PCs section, and the two Snapdragon-powered PCs are the only two devices that are listed. Being that the page lists the Snapdragon 835 as a feature and Sprint's free data offer, it seems unlikely that this section of the Microsoft Store will ever include Intel Always Connected PCs.

Other than the cellular connectivity, the value proposition to Windows 10 on ARM devices is battery life. Either of the two devices promises up to 22 hours of active usage, but standby time also improves due to ARM's big.LITTLE architecture, which has efficient cores to handle background tasks.
