In many ways, the story of personal computing in 2015 was the story of 2-in-1s. New advances in processing power finally made it possible for nearly every major manufacturer to develop thin, light devices with had the ability to handle everyday tasks quickly and pleasingly. The result: beautiful devices that users love for their flexibility and capability.

But for all the attention paid to the latest wave of 2-in-1s and tablets in 2015, the HP Elite x2 might just have all the rest beat – especially in the enterprise.

A 2-in-1 designed to charm users – and the IT department

Impossible to ignore, the Elite x2’s most striking physical feature is the stainless steel kickstand, which can flex backward and forward to provide access to the tablet in notebook, display and draw mode. The entire machine benefits from the same level of care, with physical specs that include front and back facing cameras, Bang & Olufsen audio, and a full-size Wacom pen and digitizer – the preferred choice of creative professionals around the world.

While the Elite x2’s striking looks get most of the initial attention, it’s in the details that its enterprise chops become apparent. A choice of Intel Core M3, M5 and M7 processors provide the ability to handle business class applications with ease while a USB-C port, SD card reader, Kensington Lock, and optional 4G LTE help make moving content easy wherever you’re working. The Elite x2’s keyboard options provide an excellent typing experience and can even be upgraded with optional backlighting.
