HP Chromebook 12-F002TU X2 12.3-inch M3-7Y30 8GB RAM 64GB Laptop, Ceramic white$1,299.00
After several months of rumours and leaks, HP has released its HP Chromebook X2 in Australia which houses an Intel Pentium “Gold” 4415Y – a Chipset that was believed to remain exclusively available for the recently released machine from Microsoft named Microsoft Surface Go. The X2 is classified as a detachable that means you can remove the display from the base keyboard with just one hand. There are 2 components in Chromebook X2 which are married by rolling, a magnetic hinge that supports 2 in 1 modes i.e. clamshell, tent, stand as well as the tablet. The X2 measures 0.60-inches thick when closed with a keyboard attached and a meager 0.32-inches thin just in the tablet portion alone.

What’s in the Box?
Very much unlike competing machines such as iPad Pro and Surface Pro, Chromebook X2 comes with everything one would want in the box. When you open a box, the screen is attached with the keyboard, and the pen is packed in its own plastic packaging. Remove the battery housing for the pen – pop in the included AAAA battery and when start using the pen – no coupling required. Moreover, you’ll also find 45-watt USB-C charger which juices up X2 from 0% to 100% in a couple of minutes.
Digging down inside the beast, it’s powered by a 7th generation Intel Core m3-7Y30 processor and 4GB of RAM alongside 32GB of onboard memory. The processor is fanless, low-power model – excellent for Chromebooks. Most important of all, X2 enables users to expand its onboard memory further via microSD and you can always hook up a USB-C flash drive for portable storage. Bluetooth 4.2 and 802.11ac Wi-Fi are here to connect you to your wireless accessories and the net as well.
The display of Chromebook X2 is the exact same panel which we’ve already seen in Samsung Chromebook Plus and Pro and Google Pixelbook. The display is being supported by 2400 x 1600 pixels – hence it has the excellent 3:2 aspect ratio – and just like those previous devices – it’s exquisite. Moreover, the colours are vibrant and accurate – making the video and comic art pop.
The display is also covered by a healthy bezels but not as large as on Google Pixelbook. Touch response is excellent – there’s no delay between tapping the screen and an action occurring. The side of the tablet portion is clipped in reflective silver, whereas its back side is stark white with HP Logo. The bottom side of the keyboard is Black and the top side is Blue with a faux leather texture. So far, it’s the only colour option available across the globe. Either other companies make different skins or not, we’re not sure.
