HP tablets SlateBook X2 and X2 Split

HP has just lifted the veil on two of its convertible machinery namely the SlateBook X2 and X2 Split. The first is the size of 10.1 inches and embeds a 4 NVIDIA Tegra chip, while the second is Windows 8 and includes a Core processor from Intel. Both should arrive during the summer by its American manufacturer. HP seems to have been attracted by the proposal for its NVIDIA SlateBook. Note that the manufacturer has announced an operating frequency of 1.8 GHz chip. Anyway, it seems SlateBook is pretty good at first glance with its concept of "dockable tablet." Its dimensions are quite exactly 284.48 x 212.09 x 20.32 mm with a total weight of 1.4 kg. This is still relatively high and heavy for a 10.1-inch tablet along with a docking station with a keyboard with separate keys. Anyway, the screen has an IPS Full HD (1920 x 1200 pixels). 2 GB of RAM and 64GB of storage are part and it will be possible to complete it via a microSDHC card reader. Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0 are included, as well as HDMI outputs, a combo jack of 3.5 mm and a USB 2.0 ports. Two picture / video sensors are present: 1080p and 720p rear facade. And Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) will be responsible for driving the beast to its output. For now, HP provides little detail about its potential in terms of additions or overlay applications. The price for this SlateBook X2 will start at $ 479.99 and will be available most probably in August, at least in the United States. The question is whether this price includes only the tablet or together with the docking station. SplitBook, the Transformer Book "made in HP" Windows 8.Let us remind that the SplitBook the ASUS Transformer Book, but in a much more accessible version. Indeed, one can say that HP is really worked hard for this Ultrabook detachable model, except that it is completely covered with "soft touch" material. The screen is a particularly "good" such as one finds an IPS touch screen display ... only 1366 x 768 pixels.

 HP Split X2:

The configuration is based this time on a Core i3 or i5 third generation (Ivy Bridge) along with 2 GB of RAM. Storage side, we have a 128GB SSD while a 500 GB hard drive takes place in the docking station to increase capacity. In terms of connectivity, HDMI output, a USB 3.0 port, one USB 2.0, a microSDHC card reader on the tablet, another SDHC on the station include home and a combo jack 3, 5 mm to accommodate a headset or microphone. Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0 are included, but like the Envy X2, no NFC chip seems to be present. HP, again indicate that this gadget will be available in August in the U.S. for beginner for a starting price of $ 799.99. We'll see what the manufacturer offers when these two products will be announced on the old continent.
