HP Debuts First Chromebook Detachable, HP Chromebook x2, Priced at $599

By James A.

HP unveiled a new Chromebook this week, the Chromebook x2 model, which is priced at $599 and it’s supposed to go head to head with the iPad Pro in the education area. This is supposed to be the first Chromebook detachable, according to HP.

This is no Google Pixelbook for sure, but it’s sure better than the average Chrome OS laptop. The detachable aspect of it lets you switch between a laptop mode and a tablet mode, with ease. The device has a magnetic hinge, which is unlike those of the kind you’ve seen till now. It ensures a smooth connection between the full sized keyboard base and the 12.3 inch tablet.

The 12.3 inch touch display offers a resolution of 2400 x 1600 pixels and inside the laptop we find a 7th gen Intel Core m3 processor, 4 GB of RAM (with the option to add 4 GB more), 32 GB of storage and a microSD card slot. The connectivity options are pretty standard, including two USB Type-C ports and an audio jack. The device is supposed to offer up to 10 hours of battery life and it comes in an elegant anodized aluminum finish and Oxford Blue keyboard.

 

The product is a bit beefier than the iPad Pro, at 8.2 mm in thickness and 1.62 pounds in weight. Those are tablet sizes, but when it becomes a laptop it goes to 15.3 mm in thickness and 3.14 pounds in weight. HP Chromebook x2 comes as a bundle, with the above mentioned keyboard and an active pen stylus. It will be sold starting from June 10.

Basically what we have is a tablet/notebook that can run forever on a charge! 20+ hours and beyond! Yeah folks that is huge. Of course you will not get the processing power of your average Intel Core i5 or i7 because this thing is runnng a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, which is fast, efficient and much like the latest smartphone processors. So basically, it is like your last year’s cell phone, but on Win10!

CES 2018: HP Envy x2 Debuts in 2018 Version, With Core-Y CPU, LTE

By Radu Iorga

HP just upgraded its Envy x2 laptop with a 2018 version, that was unveiled in Las Vegas over the last hours. The new HP Envy x2 from CES 2018 relies on an Intel Core-Y processor and also has LTE in the mix. It feels like a Surface rival and also a Windows on ARM rival.

The new x2 has an Intel 7th generation Y series processor inside and runs on Windows 10 Home. The power of the Intel-Y chipset has been raised to 6W from 4.5W, which means we get a performance bump too. Benchmarks are confirming it, with a 17% increase in 3DMark 11 and 20% in PCMark 8. HP Envy x2 with Y Series CPU is a derived version of the earlier model with Snapdragon CPU.

The new device has a promised battery life of around 15 hours. It also comes with HP Fast Charge technology, able to juice up the laptop to 90% in 90 minutes. WiFi and LTE are here, plus a detachable keyboard with 3 modes of use: laptop, reading and tablet. The chassis of the product is made from CNC aluminum and the design is of the fanless variety. Gorilla Glass 4 is also here and the screen is a 12.3 incher with Full HD res.

 

It all measures 7.9 mm in thickness and weighs 1.65 lbs. Other specs include up to 256 GB of PCIe SSD storage, a 5 MP WDR front camera and a main 13 MP WDR support. Dual Bang & Olufen speakers are also included. The kickstand/keyboard mechanism feels a lot like the Surface Pro one. No info about pricing, but the debut time frame is this Spring.

Chuwi LapBook 12.3 Gets Price Cut, With a Coupon Code

By Radu Iorga

If you’re looking for a Quad HD screen laptop that doesn’t break the bank or the piggy bank, this may just be the product for you. Chuwi’s LapBook 12.3 is a device we’ve written about before, but never at such a good price. It goes for $299 usually, but we have a discount coupon for you below.

By using the coupon code “chuwi5off” on Banggood.com you can get the price down to just $289.74. The device offers a 12.3 inch IPS display with a generous resolution of 2736 x 1824 pixels. It relies on an Intel Celeron N3450 quad core processor, clocked at 1.1 GHz, but going as high as 2.2 GHz. It’s also a good piece of news that the device runs on Windows 10 Home and that’s preinstalled.

Another impressive aspect is the quantity of RAM: 6 GB in this case, plus 64 GB of eMMC storage. There’s Bluetooth 4.0 here, a 0.3 MP front camera for chats with friends and HDMI output. Intel Gen 9 HD Graphics will take care of the graphical aspect and you can add an extra SSD extension. The build is surprisingly solid, since it combines magnesium and aluminum in an unibody setup.

On the input front, we’ve got a 145 degree rotating keyboard with a full size touchpad. Chuwi LapBook weighs 1.4 kilograms and measures 8 mm in thickness, plus it has 1.5 mm key travel. Dual channel speaker will also aid with acoustics. Oh and I forgot the battery! It’s an 8000 mAh unit, ready for 7-8 hours of standby time. You can get the device here.

Eve V Crowfunded Tablet Gets Delayed, Promised a Screen Upgrade to Make Up for It

By Radu Iorga

We’ve written about the Eve V a bunch of times, as it’s a promising project, that seemed to offer a pretty solid alternative to the Surface Pro tablet. Sadly, as it sometimes happens to crowdfunded projects, delay has struck the Eve V, but there’s a silver lining in the mix.

That silver lining is the fact that we’ll be getting a screen upgrade as a result. This is not only a crowdfunded product, but also crowd surveyed, so the maker of the device has been asking people which should be the features included. Eve Tech meant the slate to be shipped earlier this year and it didn’t meet the date it promised. It’s also true that finished prototypes have been shown to journalists recently and the product also reached the FCC in June, so things are in motion.

The main problem remains with getting screens for the tablet, which if I remember correctly also plagued projects like Jolla. The first batch of screens that Eve got wasn’t up to their requirements, so that’s when things went slow. The supplier couldn’t provide new panels in time, so Eve turned to the crowdfunders and asked them what to do.

An option was to still wait for the supplier and another was to ask for the money back and buy a different screen. This one also brings a screen resolution bump, so instead of a 2736 x 1824 pixel panel, we’ll get a 2880 x 1920 pixel one. Eve could use a 12.3 incher from Sharp for extra screen efficiency. Another option is a 12 inch panel from AUO, with lower power usage as well.

1.4 million dollars have been contributed on Indiegogo, so funds should be sufficient to make this device happen.
