    I like putting hard shells on my portable computers, and thankfully HP made a clip-on hard case/shell for the Zbook X2. I just got one for ~$19 shipped and installed in on my ZBookX2.

    The shell is well made, thick black plastic and clips on securely without any movement
    The insides have a "soft-touch" surface.
    It allows full access to all ports and buttons.
    Has VESA mounting holes
    Includes well made carry straps.
    Has an elastic pen holder along the top edge that holds the pen really well.
    It is about the same thickness as the Zbook X2 keyboard.

    IMHO the case is way more secure than the "hard shell" that I had on my SurfacePro 2.

    HP MSRP is ~$70 but it can be found for s low a $12 + shipping. I got mine from www.comptechdirect.com

    Yes, the ZbookX2 is built like a tank, but I am thankful for a bit extra since I often commute. It does add a bit more bulk and weight, but I really like the pen strap holder.


    PS:

    Updated to the laster ver on Windows on Sept 30, after running all HP updated. NO issues so far.

    @artistebot Thanks for the heads up about the case. I remember seeing it when it was more expensive and decided to wait. Now no excuse lol

    Yesterday morning via the HP Support Assistant:
    • HP Client Security Manager: Installation was uneventful but no progress bar. Required a Restart.

    I'm possibly looking to sell mine if anybody is interested.

    32 gb ram. 1tb ssd. Dreamcolor. Works great. Has a little screen bleed in it.

    Let me know if anybody is interested. Nothing wrong with it but I have been having bad eye strain and I need to get an eye operation so I can draw again as I get headaches whenever I try. Not even my glasses I got help.:(
