The Microsoft Surface competitor comes standard with detachable keyboard starting at 1300 Euros.

In addition to Lenovo's Miix 700, the Microsoft Surface series will be facing additional competition from HP in the form of the Spectre x2 12 detachable. This 12-inch tablet will sport a 1080p display with a focus on Core m processors only. Thus, the HP tablet should be sufficient for office tasks and media consumption.

The Spectre x2 12 can be equipped with a 0.9 GHz Core m3-6Y30 or 1.2 GHz Core m7-6Y75. Otherwise, the specifications for the two SKUs are largely the same including the 256 GB SSD, 2x USB 3.1 Type-C ports, and LTE connectivity. The rear and front-facing cameras will be 8 MP and 5 MP, respectively, while the 42 Wh battery promises up to 10 hours of battery life. Meanwhile, the keyboard will include a backlight and a trackpad as well. Interestingly, the tablet will still sport an active fan despite running on low-power Core m processors.

The less expensive Core m3 configuration will cost 1300 Euros and offers 4 GB DDR3L RAM while the Core m7 model will retail for 1400 Euros and offers 8 GB RAM. Expect our usual comparisons between this and both the Lenovo Miix 700 and Surface Pro 4 once we have all units benchmarked and ready for reviewing.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
