HP announced the new 12.1-inch HP Pavilion x2 Windows 10 2-in1 tablet today, which replaces the perfectly acceptable predecessor with the same name, just a slightly smaller display.
UPDATED: HP Pavilion x2 with Intel Core m3 processor released and taking orders.
But the new HP Pavilion x2 will be powered by and option of either Intel Atom or Intel Core M processor, so that’s an interesting model difference right there, with quite a large difference in performance.
So understandably, the rest of the specs will vary greatly too, meaning that RAM options goes from 2GB to 8GB of RAM, while storage options are 64GB to 128GB to 256GB of storage.
The display resolution is 1920 x 1280, and also has active digitizer support, with Bang & Olufsen audio. The Wi-Fi supports 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, while remaining specs include USB 3.1 Type-C port, one USB 2.0 port, and a micro-HDMI port.
HP expects to launch the HP Pavilion x2 models on February 7. The price starts at $499 with Intel Atom, and $599 with Intel Core m3. Battery life is an estimated 8 hours, from a battery capacity of 33 Whr.
This looks like it will become an interesting mid-range Windows 10 2-in-1 tablet.
