HP unwraps SlateBook x2 and Split x2 two-in-one detachable PCs
HP is upping the ante by announcing two new two-in-one detachable PCs - the HP SlateBook x2 and HP Split x2. For starters, the HP SlateBook x2 runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and it is powered by a Tegra 4 mobile processor from NVIDIA. The SlateBook x2 also sports a 10.1-inch HD touchscreen display. But perhaps the killer feature is its convertible design, as it can double as a tablet and a notebook.
On the other hand, the HP Split x2 sports a 13.3-inch display and it is running Windows 8. Under the hood is a 3rd generation Intel Core processor. Similar to the SlateBook x2, the Split x2 also features a detachable design. The HP SlateBook x2 and HP Split x2 will be available in the U.S. starting August with prices starting at $479.99 and $799.99, respectively.
