HP Pavilion X2 (10-Inch): Is It Good for Business?

HP introduced this month a 10-inch version of the HP Pavilion x2, a "detachable PC" that can give business users a run for their money. The HP Pavilion x2 is a thin, ultraportable two-in-one tablet that turns into a laptop and has enough power to get you through the workday and beyond. With a 10.1-inch HD touch screen, full version of Windows, Intel processor and long battery life, the HP Pavilion x2 is worth considering as your next business tablet.

Doubles as a notebook

Like its 11.6-inch predecessor, which came out last year, this brand-new 10-inch model comes with a detachable keyboard that instantly transforms the tablet into a notebook, so you can be productive even on the go. A built-in cover is also included, which lets you adjust the tablet's viewing angle in notebook form.

Battery life

The HP Pavilion x2 means business when it comes to battery life. It packs nearly 12 hours of power, so you don't have to worry about whether plugging in will get in the way of your productivity. [Best Tablets for Business: 2014 Edition]

Intel performance

This two-in-one tablet doesn't compromise on performance, either. It comes with a quad-core Intel processor that delivers high performance, speed and efficient battery life. Whether you're multitasking or working on files and tasks that require heavy power, this processor can keep up throughout the day and preserve your battery, even if you have to take your work home with you.

Free Office 365

An ultraportable device also needs ultraportable productivity. The HP Pavilion x2 comes with a free one-year subscription to Office 365, Microsoft's cloud-based version of Microsoft Office. You can check your email, work on documents and spreadsheets, create presentations, videoconference, collaborate, share files and more — anytime, anywhere.

Cost and availability

The HP Pavilion x2 starts at $330 and will be available on Oct. 29.
