Always On, Always Connected PC (ACPC) laptops powered by Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ compute platforms let you experience reliable, lightning-fast 4G LTE and 5G connectivity*, multi-day battery life**, eye-popping graphics, and smart audio. All integrated into a thin, light, fan-less, sleek laptop design, giving you the best of smartphone experiences combined with powerful PC performance. With ACPCs powered by Snapdragon compute platforms, you can stay connected and productive virtually anywhere.

Build powerful, responsive ACPCs with the Snapdragon compute platforms.

Powerful performance

ACPCs built with Snapdragon compute platforms feature Qualcomm® Kryo™ CPU performance plus Qualcomm® Adreno™ GPUs for crystal-clear graphics. Snapdragon compute platforms combine powerful performance with battery efficiency while delivering immersive user experiences.

Multi-day battery life

Snapdragon compute platforms keep you connected with the ultimate in power efficiency. Intelligently distributing workloads across the entire system delivers extraordinary battery life—up to multiple days on a single charge**. So your ACPC lasts up to twice as long as most typical laptops.

Superior connectivity

Choose PCs powered by Snapdragon compute platforms with integrated modem-RF systems for lightning-fast connectivity. Snapdragon X24 4G modems enable peak download speeds up to 2 Gbps and Snapdragon X55 5G modem-RF systems enable up to 7.5 Gbps peak download speeds.
