    Good: Great performance, Good keyboard for typing, Above average battery life, Kickstand works great

    Bad: No UHD display, Keyboard connects slowly

    HP has released a very nice product with the Elite x2. However, that doesn't mean this device is for everyone. If you don't intend to use it as a tablet, then you're probably better off buying a dedicated laptop and the Dell XPS 13 is still my favorite in...

    Good: Excellent display, Long battery life

    Bad: Relatively expensive, Soft speakers, No on-board stylus storage

    A serious business-oriented tablet with a good selection of features, the HP Elite x2 G1 (1012) has a lot going for it—just not its balance of price and performance...

    Good: The updated HP Elite x2 has a slim, sturdy design, a more comfortable keyboard than Microsoft's Surface Pro and it includes that keyboard in the base price. With a fingerprint reader, replaceable components and docking options, it's suitable for both work...

    Bad: The Elite's touchpad is easily confused, sometimes unresponsive, and the battery won't quite last a full day

    HP's Elite x2 is a must-look for any buyer considering a Microsoft Surface-like computer, and the quality bundled keyboard means it effectively costs less, too...

    Good: A rare 2-in-1 that works well as a tablet, Long battery life, Excellent backlit keyboard, IPS screen, WiGig docking support

    Bad: Expensive, given the component loadout, No slot for stylus, Weak speakers, No dedicated video-out

    A business-minded Surface Pro competitor, the Elite x2 G1 is a snazzy-looking, surprisingly snappy Core M 2-in-1. It's only held back by the pricing in its higher-than-basic configurations. Read More…...

  • Good: A Surface clone that's actually repairable, Kickstand and keyboard cover swipe all the things that make the Surface's work well, Keyboard cover is a standard feature, Fanless, and decent performance and battery life courtesy of Core M, Optional LTE, Thund...

    Bad: Smaller, lower-resolution screen than the Surface Pro 4, and it's a little larger, too, You'll need a USB-C monitor or a dock if you want to charge it and drive an external display at the same time, Doesn't get as fast as the Surface does, SATA-only SSDs,...

    Ultimately if I was going to buy a tablet to replace my laptop—a big if for a lot of people in the first place—the Surface Pro feels better to use than HP's take on the concept. Its screen is a little bigger and nicer to look at, it's smaller and lighter...

    Good: Durable chassis withstands two-foot drop onto concrete, Tough Gorilla Glass 4 display, Designed for repair and upgrading

    Bad: Keyboard separates from tablet surprisingly easily, A little heavy compared to the competition, String attachment for pen is awkward

    You could drop HP's Elite x2 convertible and it probably wouldn't blink, which is probably a good thing considering how easily it falls off your lap. That's the give-and-take of this durable, repairable convertible, a solid corporate performer with a few...

  • HP's convertible tablet for business has good performance and is built to take some abuse, though a few other features don't quite measure up...

    Good: Strong, easy-to-service body, Features USB-A and USB-C with Thunderbolt 3, Comfy folding keyboard and active pen included, Active-pen support with 2,048 levels of sensitivity

    Bad: Keyboard and touchpad slow to wake up, Mediocre battery life for an ultraportable

    With a top-notch detachable design, strong security features and comfortable keyboard, HP's Elite x2 is our top pick among business hybrids...

  • Good: Good performance, excellent backlit keyboard/cover, fine display, comes with keyboard and pen, a variety of secure features, including fingerprint reader, can be repaired inhouse (by qualified IT staff)

    Bad: Display colors not as strong as on AMOLED screen, only way to store pen is via rather flimsy attachable loop, speakers not as strong as expected

    One of the advantages of having several 2-in-1 devices to choose from is that you can start to differentiate by what you want to do with them. The HP Elite x2 is not what I would choose for a consumer item; its display is bright and satisfactory, but does...

    Good: IPS display, silent, M.2 SSD, keyboard dock, ActivePen, very good battery life, LTE modem, 3-year warranty

    Bad: expensive, chassis could be more sturdy

    Just like the competing manufacturers, HP outfits the Elite x2 with Core-m CPUs from Intel's current Skylake-generation of processors. The performance is more than adequate for most usage scenarios. Even extended loads don't cause a performance drop. The...

  • Confession: I bought a fully loaded Microsoft Surface Pro 3 with the (optional) purple keyboard cover last year. But as much as I loved the idea of the 2-in-1 Surface Pro, I ultimately sent it back. Why? One of the biggest reasons was that I hated the key...

  • the HP Elite x2 is an excellent Windows 10 convertible, with a smart, high quality hardware design, performance that beats its closest competitors, an excellent bundled keyboard and pen, and maintainability that should benefit IT managers who have to ad...
