HP Philippines just launched locally three of what could be a potent competitor on both the tablet and a hybrid tablet and a notebook arena, the HP SlateBook 10 x2, HP Slate 21 and the HP Slate 7.
The HP SlateBook 10 x2, is actually a tablet convertible to a notebook, with a detachable keyboard that you can easily snap with its magnetic hinges together with the 10.1-inch Full HD 1200 x 1920 touchscreen display. Besides the sleek hybrid design, what’s inside makes it roar with a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor, plus a 2GB of RAM, which makes it ultra fast in performance and exceptional on the graphics. Also notable with its specs is the presence of two (2) batteries, one inside the tablet and the other one in the keyboard, which makes it last much longer even on heavy use.
