HP Split x2 combines tablet portability with notebook productivity
The HP Split x2 looks like an ultrabook (it actually is), but this PC is also detachable. Hence, the name "Split." The Split x2 can be used as a tablet and a notebook. It features a 13.3-inch touchscreen display, a fanless cooling system, and BeatsAudio technology.
Running Windows 8, the Split x2 is powered by a 4th generation Intel Core processor and 4GB of DDR3 RAM. There's also a 128GB SSD, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, USB 3.0, HDMI, and a digital card reader.
Another major selling point here is its 12-hour battery life, all thanks to its dual-battery system on the base and the tablet. The HP Split x2 will be available in the U.S. on June 29. The price starts at $599.99.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
