HP Spectre 13 x2 Released

HP have certainly been working hard on positioning itself in it's rightful position as a contender in the tablets and ultrabook market this year. And now in November the really exciting models are coming out. Like this, the new HP Spectre 13 x2 detachable hybrid tablet.

HP Spectre 13 x2 is the first fanless detachable ultrabook that's powered by Intel's Haswell processor. More specifically an Intel Core i5-4202Y processor at 1.60GHz with Turbo Boost Technology up to 2.0GHz.

What we're looking at otherwise here is a Windows 8.1 laptop, with a 13.3-inch screen with a FHD 1920 x 1080 resolution display. 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 128GB of storage. Nothing like HP's budget tablets then.

There are two HP Spectre 13 models, and they could easily be confused. The “HP Spectre 13” is the ultrabook seen in the video below, which unfortunately does not feature a detachable tablet, which results in a lower price. And then there's this, the HP Spectre 13 x2 which is a detachable standalone tablet as well as a powerful laptop, as seen in the pictures or in Microsoft Store:

The design is as elegant on the ‘x2' model as it is on the ultrabook model.
