HP is also at the Mobile World Congress and it has its own understanding of what mobile stands for. The company has launched a Windows 10 device named HP Pro X2 with a detachable keyboard and a stylus.
HP Pro x2 was launched today at MWC in Barcelona. The device is a convertible laptop/tablet that has a 12” display with FullHD resolution. It is developed to work with a detachable keyboard and a stylus, much like a Surface device or the Android-powered Galaxy Tab S3. It is also extremely tough - the Pro x2 is designed to withstand MIL-STD-810G tests. And if this isn’t enough, you can buy an extra case for further protection because why not.
The Pro x2 is powered by Intel’s latest Kaby Lake CPU ranging from the Core i7 to the Core M3 and there’s even an option for you to pick a Pentium chipset. RAM is 8GB LPDDR3 RAM and 512 GB SSD storage. The GPU is unimpressive though - it has the okayish Intel HD Graphics 615. It supports both 4G LTE and Wi-Fi, has a microSD slot and a smart card reader.
There’s also an 8 MP camera for all the people who take pictures with a 12” device and sleep comfortably after that.
HP Pro x2 prices start from $979 and can be purchased right away at HP’s website.
Update: HP changed the starting price to $1,399 on their website.
Me too. I thought that this had thoroughly bested the Galaxy Book until I read about the GPU...
I really liked the Pro x2, to be honest. Seems like a nice convertible tablet...
Dell 13 XPS 2 in 1 is a way better, same hardware, much brighter screen and larger 13 inches, carbon fiber, same price, solid keyboard.
