HP Elite x2 1012 G1 review

 

Impressive usability that comes at a price

Comfortable and function-rich keyboard ; Responsive trackpad ; Clear screen

So-so hinge ; Short battery life ; Awkward stylus attachments

Though better for business than the Surface Pro, the HP Elite x2 1012 G1 also suffers from poor battery life.

A strong rival to the Surface Pro 4, but it's not quite the finished article
