HP Launches ZBook X2

Earlier on yesterday, Microsoft unveiled its new Surface Book 2 laptop with solid specifications. While we will have to wait to find out how the latest laptop performs against other top models, HP has announced its own ZBook X2 at the Adobe’s Max conference earlier today. While the latest laptop currently competes with Apple’s MacBook Pro, the company claimed that the ZBook can be used as a workstation as it is world’s most powerful detachable PC.

Similar to Microsoft’s Surface Book 1, ZBook x2 comes with either seventh- or eighth-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 CPUs. Despite that, HP falls little bit behind in the graphics department as the X2 will ship without dedicated graphics card. However, you can chose Nvidia Quadro M620 in case you need a dedicated graphics card. If you are wondering, the Quadro M620 will be more powerful than the GTX 1050 or 1060 Microsoft will release its Surface Book 2 with.

While the ZBook X2 will feature Intel’s latest CPUs, it will come with a 14 inch, 4K touchscreen display. While the laptop supports up to 32GB of RAM, like Surface Book 2, the X2 will come with 8GB or 16GB or RAM.

While the laptop will provide all the necessary power for completing everyday tasks, HP is expecting that the X2 will attract more digital content creators thanks to its Adobe-friendly features. Along with the optional video card, you can choose the optional “DreamColor” display with 100 percent Adobe RGB color space.

If you want to get your hands on the latest laptop as soon as you can however, you will need to wait few more weeks as HP revealed that it will start shipping ZBook X2 starting from December.
