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.
