HP Elite x2 G1 (1012)

 

A serious business-oriented tablet with a good selection of features, the HP Elite x2 G1 (1012) has a lot going for it—just not its balance of price and performance.

Excellent display. Long battery life.

Relatively expensive. Soft speakers. No on-board stylus storage.

Conclusion Finding the sweet spot between price and features is one of the biggest challenges of tablet shopping, and the recent proliferation of affordable Windows slates and convertibles has made the process even more difficult. For all the sharp...

HP Elite x2 1012 G1 Tablet with Travel Keyboard

 

The HP Elite x2 is different. Starting at the same $899 as a Surface Pro 4 (£708 in the UK or AU$1661 in Australia), HP's 12-inch tablet includes the keyboard cover that Microsoft's slate lacks. And a fingerprint sensor. And a non-proprietary USB-C...

The updated HP Elite x2 has a slim, sturdy design, a more comfortable keyboard than Microsoft's Surface Pro and it includes that keyboard in the base price. With a fingerprint reader, replaceable components and docking options, it's suitable for both...

The Elite's touchpad is easily confused, sometimes unresponsive, and the battery won't quite last a full day.

HP's Elite x2 is a must-look for any buyer considering a Microsoft Surface-like computer, and the quality bundled keyboard means it effectively costs less, too.

HP Elite x2 1012 G1 review: Intel's Core m gets the job done in this sturdy convertible

 

HP designed its 12-inch Elite x2 convertible tablet with notebook-class ruggedness in mind, and it largely succeeds. But while it offers seriously solid competition for the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, a few features fall short of the bar.

Durable chassis withstands two-foot drop onto concrete ; Tough Gorilla Glass 4 display ; Designed for repair and upgrading

Keyboard separates from tablet surprisingly easily ; A little heavy compared to the competition ; String attachment for pen is awkward

HP’s Elite x2 competes well with the new crop of convertible tablets, which provide a compelling argument that they represent the next iteration of mobile productivity—smartphones aside, that is. We mixed in a small number of notebooks as well, just to...

HP Elite x2 1012 G1 Convertible Review

 

Business Elite. With the Elite x2 1012 G1, HP takes on Microsoft's Surface Pro 4. The convertible offers a keyboard dock, an active stylus and an LTE modem. At almost 1500 Euros (~$1690), the complete package doesn't come cheap, however.

IPS display ; silent ; M.2 SSD ; keyboard dock ; ActivePen ; very good battery life ; LTE modem ; 3-year warranty

expensive ; chassis could be more sturdy

Just like the competing manufacturers, HP outfits the Elite x2 with Core-m CPUs from Intel's current Skylake-generation of processors. The performance is more than adequate for most usage scenarios. Even extended loads don't cause a performance drop....

HP Elite x2 G1 (1012) Review and Ratings

 

A business-minded Surface Pro competitor, the Elite x2 G1 is a snazzy-looking, surprisingly snappy Core M 2-in-1. It's only held back by the pricing in its higher-than-basic configurations.

A rare 2-in-1 that works well as a tablet ; Long battery life ; Excellent backlit keyboard, IPS screen ; WiGig docking support

Expensive, given the component loadout ; No slot for stylus ; Weak speakers ; No dedicated video-out

The HP Elite x2 G1 proved itself a high-quality tablet with practical aspirations, especially for business, but its price point left us a bit cold.

HP Elite x2 1012 G1

 

Impressive usability that comes at a price

Comfortable and function-rich keyboard ; Responsive trackpad ; Clear screen

So-so hinge ; Short battery life ; Awkward stylus attachments

Though better for business than the Surface Pro, the HP Elite x2 1012 G1 also suffers from poor battery life.
