HP’s Enterprise Grade Hybrid is here

HP recently launched the Pro x2 612, a detachable two in- one notebook for business users. The notebook is HP’s first detachable PC built for business users. For users looking for a more mobile keyboard, HP also provides a Travel Keyboard option. The Travel Keyboard is backlit, features a USB 3.0 port, an audio jack, and kickstand functionality. HP aims to compete directly with the newly unveiled Microsoft Surface 3.

One other benefit compared to other 2 in 1 devices is that there is a proper HP docking station option available.

The device features a 12.5-inch diagonal display, Intel Core i3/i5 processors including a vPro option, Smart Card Reader, and an optional fingerprint reader. The Pro x2 612 comes with a built-in Wacom digitizer stylus. The stylus sits in a slot on the tablet itself, on the lower edge.
