HP Pavilion x2 Detachable 12
Is it a tablet or a laptop? The answer is both. The HP Pavilion x2 Detachable 12 is a recently released laptop-tablet hybrid. HP is known for releasing economical computers and laptops for consumers and enterprise solutions. Is this latest entry worth a look or should you wait for a good deal on a Microsoft Surface?

The HP Pavilion x2 Detachable 12 is built with an Intel Core m3-6Y30 0.9GHz Processor. This is a notebook processor with 2 cores and a 4MB cache. The 6th generation of Intel Core m3 processors features an ultra-quiet fan-less design. This is combined with integrated Intel HD Graphics 515.
The integrated graphics allow HD streaming and photo editing. Though, you will not be playing the latest First-Person Shooter or other processor intensive games on the device.
Upon inspection of the device, a few design elements stand out. First is the versatility of the product. This is the primary selling point. The device is essentially a tablet with a keyboard dock. This allows you to set the HP Pavilion x2 12 on your desk and use it as a laptop or remove the keyboard and hold it is as a tablet.
this is a decent laptop/tablet hybrid – especially considering the price point. It is listed anywhere between $499 and $599. For a similar price, you could get an Apple iPad, but you would be lacking the versatility and compatibility offered by this product. It is the perfect option for those that want an affordable device but cannot make up their mind between purchasing a tablet and a laptop.
If you need a basic tablet or laptop for everyday use, you may want to give this device a closer look. Consider purchasing your HP Pavilion x2 Detachable 12 laptop/tablet hybrid today.
