HP unveils its first detachable Chromebook which combines the productivity of the Chrome OS and power of the world’s most-used app platform, Android into a versatile form factor.


The HP Chromebook x2 is a thin and lightweight tablet which offers great performance with long battery life. It comes with surprising features for productivity, sharing, and entertainment. It retails for $599.99 and will be available from Best Buy starting June 10.

Similar to the smaller iPad Pro, the HP Chromebook x2 comes from the same school of design as Microsoft’s Surface Book.

A 12.9-inch tablet/laptop hybrid packs a seventh-generation Intel Core m3 processor, a skimpy 4GB of soldered RAM and 32GB of eMMC storage with Micro SD expansion up to 256 GB. It features QHD+ (2,400-by-1,600) WLED-backlit touch panel with a 5MP HP Wide Vision camera and a 13MP rear camera devoted to mirror selfie loyalists.

The HP Chromebook x2 offers two USB-C ports which you can use for charging, transferring data, and outputting to external displays. You will also find audio jack for headphones and stereo speakers. It includes Quad HD 12.3-inch diagonal Corning Gorilla Glass 4 touch display.

An affordable HP Chromebook x2 has the versatility that allows using the device in a variety of modes. It can be magnetically hinged and unhinged and it offers the strength and rigidity to keep it attached and upright when used as a laptop. With the magnetic hinge, you can place the HP Chromebook x2 in multiple modes for work, school, and entertainment as it features touch and pen experience.
