Are you trying to choose between a tablet and a laptop? Try a hybrid instead, and get the best of both worlds. HP's latest device can help.

The company recently released the HP Elite x2 1011 G1, a 2-in-1 tablet and Ultrabook built especially for business users. This ultraportable hybrid delivers high performance, business-ready capabilities and plenty of accessories to fulfill a small business's needs.

Here are the top three features that the HP Elite x2 has to offer small business users. [Best Tablets for Business 2015 (and Why We Love Them)]

Portable 2-in-1 

The Elite x2 is an excellent device for business users who want both the form factor of a laptop and the portability and convenience of a tablet. 

Out of the box, the tablet by itself sports an ultraslim body that measures only 0.42 inches thin. It features an 11.6-inch screen, and users have the choice of either the HD 1366 x 768-pixel or full-HD 1920 x 1080-pixel display. Then, just simply attach the hinged keyboard and easily transform this 2-in-1 into an Ultrabook laptop.

The device's build also adds to its portability — the Elite x2 is built for mobility, passing military standard testing for ruggedness. That means users can travel with the device on the field or anywhere their business takes them, without having to worry about its durability.

Business-ready 

Running on Windows 8.1 and powered by the fifth-generation Intel Core M processor with 8GB of RAM, the Elite x2 delivers high performance that can keep up with even the most demanding business users. It also comes with up to 512GB of storage, a USB 3.0 port, and both microSD and micro SIM slots.

Additionally, the Elite x2 is packed with several enterprise-level features to help users manage devices and run their businesses. For instance, it includes an optional 4G LTE connectivity for anytime, anywhere Internet access, while the HP Touchpoint Manager can be used to manage data, security and devices from a single cloud-based platform. It also comes with HP's Client Management Solutions to manage deployment, updates and other device-related tasks, as well as security features like HP SureStart, HP Client Security, HP BIOSphere, and optional smart card and fingerprint readers to secure sensitive data and files.

Accessories  

With the Elite x2, business users can add more functionality to the tablet and become even more productive by taking advantage of optional accessories. 

Accessory options include the following:

  • Keyboards. Choose from a lightweight travel keyboard or the heavier power keyboard with a built-in battery that extends the tablet's battery life.
  • Covers. Protect the device with a tablet cover, or fold it shut using a hinged keyboard.
  • Wacom pen. Use this stylus to take notes or sketch directly on the tablet and digitize handwritten content. 
  • WiGig wireless dock. Automatically connect the Elite x2 for wireless charging, data transfers and more.
