Convertibles have become the norm in a market that does not want to take advantage of the opportunity for a laptop to be more than a laptop. At HP, they have been taking advantage of the trend for some time, but now they go further with the launch of the HP ZBook x2 G4
This is a workstation in a convertible version that surprises with the specifications of the most ambitious model: we will have a Core i7 processor from the Kaby Lake-R family, an NVIDIA Quadro M620 graphics and up to 32 GB of RAM and 2 TB in its SSD drive.
The Most Bestial Tablet On The Market
Many of these specifications are hidden in the “tablet” part of the computer SuperServer, a 14-inch matte screen that can reach 4K resolutions in some of its variants and also offers support for a stylus manufactured by HP.
That tablet can work autonomously because that is where we find the Intel SoC in which that processor is so much like the integrated GPU of this manufacturer. If we want to take advantage of the power of the dedicated Quadro M620 graphics, of course, we will have to attach the screen to the keyboard that HP provides to complete a really promising set of benefits.
The HP ZBook x2 also does not fall short in connection ports, because we have Smart Card reader, SD card, HDMI port, USB 3.0 port, and two USB-C ports, both with Thunderbolt 3 interface.
The starting price is $ 1,749, but that is for the basic ZBook x2: if we want to aim for maximum benefits, we will have to pay much more. If you need a convertible with maximum performance, the HP ZBook x2 seems to be a great alternative.
