The HP Chromebook X2 is first ChromeOS Laptop with Detachable Tablet

HP has upped the game in the Chromebook market with their announcement of the new Chromebook X2. Its screen is a fully-functioning and detachable tablet and includes an active stylus.

It is powered by a 7th-gen Y-series Intel processor, 4GB of RAM (and supports up to 8GB), and 32GB of storage that can be expanded to 256GB through the microSD card slot. Using a similar size to HP’s other “x2” models, the Chromebook x2 has a 12.3-inch 2400×1600 IPS display that supports touch and pen input, and it has a 5MP WideVision camera and a 13MP rear-facing camera. It has two USB Type-C ports in addition to the microSD card slot and the standard audio in/out jack, and its 48Wh (watt-hour) battery is estimated to last 10.5 hours on a single charge.

It’s expected to retail at $599 – everything included!
