Hi, the Elite X2 (the business sister of the Spectre X2) is due soon, so I thought I would open up a thread for it. Here are the known features of the Elite X2: Hardware internals: m3-6Y30 (0,9-2,2GHz), m5-6Y54 (1.1-2.7GHz), m5-6Y57 (1.1-2.8Ghz, vPro), m7-6Y75 (1.2-3.1GHz, vPro) Skylake CPUs. 128GB (SATA), 180GB (SATA or OPAL SED), 256GB (SATA [Lite-ON L8H Zeta] or PCIe/NVMe or OPAL SED), 512GB (SATA), all M.2 2280. 4GB or 8GB RAM, LPDDR3 1866 MHz, dual channel. Display: 12" 1920x1280, 3:2, typical 340 nit. Ports: 1x Thunderbolt 3 (USB type C), 1x USB 3.0 (type A), µSD (supports µSD, µSDHC, µSDXC). Camera: 5MP (rear), 2MP (front). WLAN: 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (2x2) Intel Wireless-AC 8260, Bluetooth 4.2 or Wireless-AC 18260 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (2x2) Bluetooth 4.0 + WiGig ComboWiGig, WWAN: HP hs3110 HSPA+ Intel® Mobile Broadband, HP lt4120 Qualcomm Snapdragon X5 LTE, HP lt4225 LTE/EV-DO Gobi 4G, HP lt4226 LTE/HSPA+ Gobi 4G, on select models. Active Digitizer, Wacom AES (!) Battery: Li-Ion Polymer 40Wh, 4 cell. Weight: Tablet: 840g (1.85 lbs) Tablet + Travel Keyboard: 1235g (2.72 lbs) Tablet + NFC/Smart Card Keyboard: 1310g (2.89 lbs) Keyboard: There are two different keyboards available, one with a smart card reader and NFC, the other one with neither of those features. But that one will be a tad lighter and thinner on the other hand. Not all models come with a keyboard as standard. Watch out when ordering the Elite! Digitizer pen: As far as I know all models come with a digitizer pen included. It's Wacom AES. L5H17EA#ABD: Base model including travel keyboard. Core m3, 128GB SSD and 4GB RAM. L5H19EA#ABD: Same as L5H17EA#ABD but with m5, 256GB SSD and 8 GB RAM. Changed my order to this model due to 8 GB probably being better for me in the long run. My first impressions (20.02.2016): I've received the Elite on February 15th. It's the 8GB/2560GB SSD/m5 variant without LTE. The overall build quality is very good. The keyboard is going to be an important selling point for this device since the competition only offers half baked keyboards (Surface). It really feels like a real notebook keyboard. The size and weight is a good compromise between a Surface 3 (non pro, which was too small for me in everyday use cases) and a 12,5" device. It is heavier than a Surface Pro 4 though. The screen is only average. Resolution is fine (no scaling needed, great!), but the brightness levels and colors are not very good. The Surface line offeres much better screens, both brighter and with better colors. Despite the Bang & Olufsen branding right on the screen the speakers are plain and simple bad. Noise levels are fine but they lack bass and sound like a tin can. Surface speakers are so much better it's actually hard to believe. I'm very impressed with the overall performance of the Core m5 -6Y54. It turboes up to 2,7 GHz. Even when all four threads are at full load it goes up to 2,4 GHz and stays there. This translates in a very snappy everyday performace that doesn't feel any different from a regular Core U device. Will need to test long term stress to see how long the CPU can maintain it's turbo frequency. The SSD is a Lite-ON L8H Zeta. This one is quite a bit slower than the Samsung competition. Everyday performance is ok, but still not on par with Samsung. For this price I had really hoped for a higher quality SSD. Issues I have encountered quite a few very annoying issues so far. So I'm still not sure if I'm going to keep the device after all. The first one involves the pen (which to me is very important since I use the device mainly for note taking). The pen misses quite a few strokes when taking notes in OneNote (happens in Journal, too). As you can see, writing becomes impossible with that sort of behavior. HP is going to send me a replacement stylus soon. I hope the pen itself is defective, otherwise I have no idea on how to fix this problem. I've reinstalled Windows twice already which didn't solve the problem. The second issue I had is with the trackpad. It's a very good trackpad I must say, but sometimes it just stops working. This has happend to me in Adobe Reader DC a few times. When it becomes unresponsive you have to close the window or tap somewhere else a few times for it to register scrolling again (2 finger gesture). Another problem I have is with the power button and volume rocker. The power button almost never responds to the first click. To turn on the device I have to push it at least twice for it to boot the machine. The volume rocker shows a similar behavior. The first push opens up the volume menu in Windows, the second one actually moves the Windows slider up or down. That means that I cannot adjust the volume by holding the volume rocker. I have to push it, release it (menu opens) and then push it again to adjust the volume. So far my pro/contra: + Chassis build quality + Everyday "snappiness" + Keyboard + USB 3.0 type A port and Thunderbolt 3 ° Screen only average, not very bright, colors not that great either - issues with pen, power button and trackpad - speakers (why is there a B&O label?) (!): Not sure/ not confirmed/ no details (model, manufacturer) known to me.
