A New Old Rumor, ZDNet  says a HP snapdragon Lapto is coming soon.
(In case you have been asleep, The snapdragon does x86 code on a ARM chip.)

Windows 10 on Arm: HP's leak hints that new Snapdragon laptops nearing release

Quote
Microsoft last year was working on enabling x86 emulation on Arm processors in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, allowing Arm devices to run x86 apps.
The company's execs have previously said Windows 10 on Snapdragon SoCs would be available in six-, 10-, and 14-inch devices.
Wait and see...  :-\

I saw an article the other day that talked about some leaked performance results of running Win 10 on a snapdragon processor.  The numbers showed the snapdragon to be significantly slower than an Intel i3 cpu while running Windows.

Here's a link to an article regarding the snapdragon's performance: https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/windows-10-on-qualcomm-snapdragon-tests/
