HP Chromebook x2 is a 2-in-1 Tablet Running Chrome OS

We’ve recently seen what should be the first Chrome OS tablet with Acer Chromebook Tab featuring a Rockchip RK3399 / OP1 processor, and a 9.7″ display. The device is now joined by a high-end tablet, or more exactly a 2-in-1 tablet/ laptop with HP Chromebook x2.

Specifications:

  • SoC – Intel Core M3-7Y30 dual core/four thread processor @ 1.0 / 2.6 GHz with Intel HD Graphics 615 @ 300 / 615 MHz; 4.5W TDP
  • System Memory – 4GB or 8GB LPDDR3-1600 RAM

The stylus can be stored on the side of the keyboard, and keyboard has a hinge letting you adjust the display angle like you would with a laptop. The display can also be connected turned around to use it more like a stand.

There’s no external video output per se, but HP will offer accessories like USB type C to HDMI or VGA adapters to connect the tablet to an external display.

Liliputing reports the HP Chromebook x2 will start selling on June 10th for $600 and up.

Will not buy or support such a tablet. Too expensive! I’d rather spend money on an open source/hardware project like Pinebook and the likes!

US$600? It’s got better than the average chromebook hardware, but feel it’s still overpriced by $100.

You can ‘feel’ the quality of for example an IPS display by reading specs?
