    I have not got that much time with mine, 3.5-4 hrs.
    But I use the screen on high.

    That is a main reason I'm getting the keyboard base
    that includes a second battery. plus the full keyboard/touchpad.
    Then it should get more than 6 hours.

    That looks nice, though it's a pricey add-on for the low-end version I bought. I wish they had some shots of it attached to the tablet. Is it a stationary position? Does it create a clamshell cover? Inquiring minds...

    @Yao, with all of the tablets at my disposal, I've never worked with the HP for more than a couple of hours at a time. Also because I don't have a keyboard cover, it's not a device I would choose for traveling.

    Yes, it clamps on and folds up clamshell style to protect the screen.
    Multi postioning for screen angle, backlit keys and extra battery/
    USB, Ethernet, and VGA ports built in.
    At least that is what the HP propaganda states.
    Will find out when mine comes in.
    Finally the tablet can be used in a productive mobile manner.

    In my case, I bought the computer part for under $500.
    $300 for the keyboard dock and I'm only at $800.

    Here's a pretty good YouTube Review

    Sam,

    great video! this is actually the best video i have ever seen on this HP Pro X2

    it really is the best (from quality perspective and build) 2-in-1 out there, just a little bit heavy.

    Perhaps HP will come out with the HP Pro X2 612 G2 with the skylake chip and keep the total weight of power keyboard and tablet around 2.8 to 3 lbs

    HP has a 30% off on accessories now.
    (as of Oct 6, 2015)

    You can obtain the dock for a little over $200.
