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
  • Storage -32GB eMMC flash, micro SD slot up to 256 GB
  • Display – 12.3″ touchscreen display with 2400 x 1600 resolution;
  • Camera – 13MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera/webcam
  • Audio – Stereo speakers, dual microphones, headphone jack
  • Connectivity – 802.11 ac 2×2 MIMO WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2 LE
  • USB – 2x USB 3.0 type C ports
  • User Input – Detachable island-style keyboard and an HP Active Pen for pressure-sensitive input.
  • Battery – 48 Whr battery good for about 10.5 hours on a charge
  • Dimensions – 292 x 211 x 15.3 mm (tablet + keyboard); tablet thickness: 8.2 mm
  • Weight – Tablet mode: 740 grams; laptop mode: 1.44 kg

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?
