Today, HP Inc. announced one awesome piece of hardware: the HP Elite x2, an incredibly versatile tablet that offers the productivity of a full notebook and the convenience of a tablet. It’s perfectly designed for the mobile professional, and it’s also the first tablet to combine BIOS-level security with HP SureStart, manageability with HP Touchpoint Manager, and an optional Intel vPro processor. In short, the HP Elite x2 is a dazzling machine with top-shelf security and all the accoutrements that a modern business professional needs.

The tablet is a mere 8.1mm thin, weighing less than two pounds – with a built-in kickstand that offers an impressive 150 degrees of adjustability, whether you’re using it with a proper keyboard, or just lounging around and using the touchscreen. Either way, the Elite x2’s 12-inch diagonal anti-glare HD display automatically adjusts to different lighting conditions. It’s convenient no matter how you choose to use it.

And of course, performance is the key factor. On top of the Elite x2’s long battery life, Intel Core M processor, built-in SSD technology, HP Noise Reduction software, 4G LTE modem, and a variety of ports (including USB-C and USB-A), it also comes loaded with Windows 10 and all of the great features that it brings to the table. Cortana, Microsoft Edge, Continuum, and the Windows Store are just the tip of the iceberg for the latest and greatest release of the world’s premier operating system.
“We designed the HP Elite x2 to be thin, light and powerful in a way that captures the simplicity and elegance users will love while also delivering the durability, serviceability, security and manageability IT departments need to enable true mobile productivity,”— Michael Park, vice president and general manager, Mobility, Personal Systems, HP Inc.
The Elite x2 includes the HP Active Pen with App Launch as a standard feature
The HP Elite x2 is expected to start shipping in the United States in January 2016, through HP’s online shopping portal and its retail partners. You can pre-order the Elite x2 starting on Monday, November 23, at a starting price of $899 (which includes the HP Travel Keyboard and HP Active Pen with App Launch).
