HP to take on iPad Pro with 2-in-1 detachable Chromebook space

Published on April 10, 2018

It goes without saying that we live in a world where Chromebooks run on Android applications as much as any other smartphone such as Google Pixel would do as such. Therefore, it would make sense to witness a resurgence of detachable, hybrid-enabled Chromebooks in the market. The devices would end up doubling as tablets at the end, thereby giving the owners the best of both the worlds. For instance, device manufacturer Acer only recently made a new announcement, wherein they made the introduction of their first Chrome OS-powered tablet. The device goes on to feature a higher resolution than most other methods and is priced at the same price as the new iPad device. It appears that HP will be following Acer up as far as introducing a new tablet to take on Apple’s iPad is concerned.

According to numerous reports, device manufacturer HP is leading the charge in the 2-in-1 detachable Chromebook space with its Chromebook Z2. The device will be like any other HP Spectre X2 that came into being before it did. Apart from this, the upcoming device will go on to feature a skinny and lightweight frame. The invention will go on magnetically hinged to and unhinged from its included keyboard at will. “That’s where the similarities end between the HP Chromebook x2 and its Windows-based forebear, however,” a new report suggests. The device goes on to feature a price tag of around $599.99. The device is similar to the smaller iPad Pro.

The product will be available on e-commerce platform Best Buy. The method is available for purchase, starting June 10. The HP Chromebook X2 is among the most affordable devices that do not compromise on looks but ensures that they are open to the best of the features. The invention is home to a seventh-generation Intel Core m3 processor, with 4GB of RAM along with 32GB of MMC storage. There is a higher-end model that comes with 8GB of RAM and costs a little more than the former. The device manufacturer decided to pack the tablet with a 12.3-inch QHD Plus display with 2,400 x 1,600 pixels resolution. Furthermore, there’s WLED backlit touch panel which makes the experience a lot smoother.

The finishing that appears on HP Chromebook X2 goes on to feature a ceramic white anodized aluminum body. It is similar to the kind that looks on Dell’s XPS that is currently available for sale on Amazon. The backlighting on its leather-like Oxford Blue keyboard adds appeal to the device. It makes the tablet a lot easier to use as well. However, there’s a bit of primo flair that is being given to the product. Apart from this, the device goes on to feature a proclivity to dock to the keyboard. This change takes place as far as the forward-facing orientation is concerned.

The HP Chromebook X2 can quickly be put in place when it comes to facing the opposite direction. “In doing so, you can use the tablet in some different modes, including a tent mode and a tabletop display mode in which the keyboard essentially serves as a kickstand,” notes an online report. The case is similar with many of HP’s other convertibles. The Chromebook X2 goes on to support an active pen that comes enclosed in a box. There’s a two-button stylus, which according to an online report, is designed for drawing, underlining, writing as well as highlighting. Additional details about the product will show up in time. There is no word on whether the company plans on introducing the device in other markets as well.
