This new HP Elite x2 G4 was announced at COMPUTEX in May, and HP unveiled the brand new folio cover keyboard then too, which is an option to the ordinary metal keyboard. But the HP Elite x2 G4 Folio Keyboard has not started taking orders yet, only the metal option has.

HP Elite x2 G4 comes in two sizes, both 12.3-inch with 1920 x 1080 resolution, and 13-inch with 3000 x 2000 resolution. And with the Elite x2 mainly belonging to the enterprise segment, it features Windows 10 Pro and FreeDOS 3.0 as standard. Those who downgrade to just Windows 10 Home will get a price reduction, which is just as well considering the $2727 entry price for this first model that's launching.

But then again the Elite x2 G4 can be configured to the needs of system admins more than probably any other Windows 2-in-1 on the market right now.

Power range from Intel Core i5-8265U with 8GB (2133 MHz) of SDRAM, to Intel Core i7-8665U with 16GB of RAM, and storage ranging from 128GB SSD to 2TB PCIe NVMe TLC SSD.

In addition to that, the HP Elite x2 G4 is also the first Windows tablet to launch with Wi-Fi 6. Cellular 4G LTE is optional, with other attractive specs including Bange & Olufsen speakers, privacy camera, Wacom AES 2.0 stylus, Thunderbolt, and even an optional 120w Thunderbolt dock.
