Limited performance. HP advertises its new business detachable as: "The one device you need...". In fact, the Elite x2 is a versatile multi-talent, but it ultimately misses a better rating due to minor flaws in details.

HP’s hybrid offers a reasonable selection of features, a comfortable keyboard and class-leading battery life. However, with it suffering with the usual hybrid pitfalls, I'd be tempted to spend the money on a dedicated notebook and tablet to get the best of both worlds – without the compromises.

Considering the HP Elite x2 1011's durability, it's not as bad as my assessment might read. Rugged laptops and tablets typically cost thousands of dollars and they're ugly as sin. The Elite x2 sits somewhere between one of these awful rugged tablets and a pretty consumer device like the Surface Pro 3. So, yes, it's a bit heavy, but it's also Fort Knox-level sturdy.

If you’re after a business-focused hybrid laptop, the Elite X2 has plenty of office-friendly credentials and display quality is the only real blemish on an otherwise capable machine. It’s a great choice for a run-all-day work laptop, but if you’ll be spending more time in tablet mode you should consider the cheaper Microsoft Surface 3 instead.

Intel HD Graphics 5300: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in Core M processors from the Broadwell Y-series (4.5 W TDP).  Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
5Y51: Broadwell-based ULV dual-core processor for tablets and 2-in-1 notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5300 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.65 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
