    I'm expecting 5 hours with my usage (onenote + browser)

    the good thing is that it have usb-c , it should work better with battery banks and car chargers (compared to other PCs with non standard chargers) although there might be some limitation to charging only when the device is off

    Why will you do that unless it can't be done with HDMI cable in the case you want.

    I use my computer in education, right now a spectra 360 that has plenty of battery. But the Synaptics stylus is not good enough.

    One thing we must see is how is battery life on Elite x2 compared to Spectre x2 because the second one model despite having larger battery capacity and 1080p resolution screen it fails behind SP4.

    I hope HP use in the Elite x2 model more battery efficient panel than Spectre x2 and not the same.

    Also how is the brightness level because several report mention somehow dim on Spectre x2 and not good visibility on very bright environment.

    Let me know when you guys find out how to connect an external display to the Elite while still being able to charge.
    That's what bothers me right now.

    Probably HP will offer adaptor USB 3.0 A to HDMI while with the second USB C you are able to charge.

    USB A 3.0 to HDMI is of no use. USB can't do native display out. And if you need 4K, it's out of the question.
    The only port that can do native display is USB 3.1 type C or Thunderbolt 1/2/3.

    there is this expensive option (about 200$ )

    this is HP's compact usb-c dock ( T3V74AA ) which give us dual display out (1 HDMI and 1 DisplayPort), Ethernet , and 4 usb ports .
    and they have another full size thunderbolt 3 dock ( P5Q54AA )

    I know this is not the solution you're looking for (since it's too expensive for a display adapter) , there are 3rd party adapters that give you what you need and for a lot leas , but it's not guaranteed that they will charge the device since hp is locking the port to their first party chargers (locked when the device is on , when the device is off it can charge from any standard uab c charger )

    HP hdmi adapter is cheap and available but it doesn't have a charging port (I think it's a huge oversight from hp)

    Well if HP not deliver proper and economical solution its deal breaker.
    I'm not willing to pay 200$ for such expensive accessories.
