At first glance, the HP Split 13-m100er x2 may not seem like something a user would want, with its bulky build and heavy weight, but it comes at a very affordable price. The device is 26 mm thick and the tablet alone weighs 1.1 kg and weighs 2.25 kg when paired with its even bulkier looking keyboard. HP has made the large keyboard work in their favor though, by including an external battery and a 500 GB hard disk as well.
The HP Split 13-m100er x2 is equipped with an Intel Core i3-4010Y processor, which gives a decent enough processing power for most users. Along its 4GB of RAM, the HP Split 13-m100er x2 won't be giving any extraordinary performance, but certainly gives an acceptable one.
The 13.3 inch screen is pretty decent. It has a resolution of 1366 by 768 which gives pretty clear pictures and video but definitely not the best out there. It supports the basic Wi-Fi modules and Bluetooth 4.0 but all wired connectivity must be done with the keyboard which comes with 3 USB ports, a HDMI output and an SD card reader.
All in all, the HP Split 13-m100er x2 comes with pretty good specifications overall, however, the tablet has very poor mobility. Big size and dependency on the keyboard dock doesn't make it the best travel mate.Intel HD Graphics 4200: Processor graphics card in some of the ULV Haswell CPUs with 20 EUs (GT2).
