HP Split x2 13-inch Windows 8 hybrid hits the market
HP has added the new <a href="http://www8.hp.com/us/en/ads/x2/split-x2.html">Split x2</a> 13-inch Windows 8 hybrid that allows users use the device as a traditional notebook, or split the display and use it as a tablet. The device is one of the larger models in its breed coming in at 13.3-inches and will sit above the 11-6-inch <a href=" http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/08/30/atom.powered.tablet.headlines.hps.windows.8.lineup/">Envy x2</a> in HP's lineup. The larger device is also powered by a choice of either Intel Core i3 or Core i5 3rd-gen processors, whereas an Intel Atom chip powers the smaller Envy x2.<br /><br />The HP Split x2 includes 4GB of RAM as standard, but can be optioned up to 8GB. The entry-level model kicks things off with 128GB of SSD storage, although a spinning hard drive up to 500GB can also be fitted. To help extend battery life in the absence of fourth-generation 'Haswell' chips, the new hybrid incorporates a battery in the keyboard base, and a second 3-cell battery in the display portion. System audio is enhanced by Beats, while connectivity is provided by way of one USB 3.0 port and one USB 2.0 port and Wi-Fi 802.11n.<br />
<br />
The HP Split x2 is available now from $799.<br />
