HP Pavilion X2 / Detachable notebook PC

Discipline: Product

The HP Pavilion X2 strikes an incredible balance between a highly productive notebook form factor and a seamless tablet experience. What makes this product superior is its multiplicity of modes (notebook mode, stand-alone tablet, docked tablet mode), implemented with a clever and simple magnet interface. Previous generations have required the use of mechanical sliders with two handed operations to attach and detach the tablet. The magnet strength of the tablet and hinge allows users to pick the entire unit up by its screen without worrying about detaching. The rigid keyboard allows for a typing experience far superior to other competitors.
