Review: HP Elite x2 is a combo tablet for the enterprise

One of the latest device types to hit the market is the 2-in-1 — a tablet that, with the addition of a keyboard, becomes a full-fledged computer. This isn’t a new idea — there have been Bluetooth keyboards available for tablets practically ever since “tablet” became a tech term. And there have been tablets that came with attachable keyboards as well. But now it looks like the category has matured to the point that the 2-in-1 is seen as a possible computer substitute, especially for people who travel and use their systems to make presentations..

HP’s recent contribution to this market is its HP Elite x2, which is available for a retail price of $ 855 (Amazon priceWhat’s this?). What sets the Elite x2 aside from some its competitors — such as Microsoft’s Surface Pro, Apple’s iPad Pro and Samsung’s Galaxy TabPro S — is that it is aimed squarely at the enterprise user. HP is pushing not only the Elite x2’s usability, but also its security and its ability to be repaired by in-house IT departments.
