    Does anybody know if it's possible to enable a PRE-BOOT onscreen keyboard similar to the Surface Pro 3 if I want to use Bitlocker without a physical keyboard?

    Some devices have this ability while some don't. I believe it is a BIOS/Firmware thing.

    Any help given would be great.

    Thanks.

    I just got the i5 model for work, with the power keyboard. Works great, but I do mish connected standby. Also, no HDMI/video in the tablet itself means I can't use the tablet like an old school Wacom tablet. Will post more as I learn more.

    The keyboard dock does not have miniHDMI,
    I thought I read somewhere it did.

    However, HP still does not offer the keyboard base seperately.....
    it has only been 4 months since it came out?????

    The x2 612 G1 is available since August 2014. I'm also a proud owner of the x2 612 (i5 8GB LTE) with the power-keyboard dock. It has only DisplayPort + VGA output.

    The Tablet itself does only offer one USB 3.0. You can buy an WiDi adapter from HP, like this one:

    I am hoping the battery life on the tablet portion is at least 5.5 hours.

    HP lists it at 8 hours, but its always 35-40% less than adverstised...

    with the battery keyboard, I hope it can do 8.5 hours. Again, HP advertises it as 14 hours, but again reduce that by 35-40% for real world usage...

    Hello guys, I just purchased the "HP Pro x2 612 G1 i5-4302Y 1.6ghz, 8gb, 256ssd, 12.5" W8.1 - J8V92UT#ABA"

    HP Refurbished for a ridiculous amazing price lower than the list price of about $1,400.

    I am very excited to get it. The WACOM EMR feel technology sealed the deal for me as well as the i5-4302y processor.

    It is very heavy at 4+ lbs, but then again, i was carrying around my HP 2170p with power adapter and that was 3.96 lbs of weight and the battery lasted at most 3 hours.

    I am also hoping to get 8.5 hours of battery life with the tablet / power keyboard usage and therefore no need to carry the extra weight of the power adapter.

    I am hoping the i5-4302y haswell is just about the same performce as the ivy bridge i5-3427u.

    i'll update you guys my experience with this and the wacom pen usage as well :)

    @Yao, I recommend you get a screen protector for the HP. It's got the slipperiest screen coating I've ever encountered in a tablet pc.
