HP Pro X2 612, 12.5", 1850gm
Full specifications are available at HP’s Indian website and they show that it’s only the Y-series Haswell CPUs (lower clocked) that are included which could mean this is fanless like the Pro X2 410. 8GB RAM option, SSD up to 256GB, 1366×768 option and a huge array of ports which include DisplayPort and VGA on the power keyboard. The power keyboard is spill-resistant and backlit and, like the 410 G1 has a 25Wh battery inside taking the total tablet+keyboard capacity to 55Wh. That should be enough for about 8-10 hours of productivity. The Pro X2 612 is very much laptop-first as the tablet weighs 1KG. We don’t see a stand and there’s no obvious stand mode or tent mode that could help digital artists. Maybe the screen can be mounted in the reverse direction? Total weight goes up to 1.85KG for a the tablet and power-keyboard combination which is 30% or more than some 13-inch Ultrabooks.
