Reviews for the HP ZBook x2 G4-2WX08AV

80% HP ZBOOK X2 G Review
Source: Toptenreviews English
HP’s ZBook X2 G4 resembles the offspring of an HP 2-in-1 workstation and a Wacom graphics tablet. While it looks like a bulky, industrial-inspired laptop-tablet combo, it’s a super-niche device for graphics professionals who want more PC functionality than professional graphics tablets usually provide.

If you want a portable, somewhat flexible and square-looking workstation with all the right bells and whistles and a fair amount of grunt, the HP Zbook x2 is a compelling choice.

80% HP ZBook x2 G4 Detachable Workstation review: A hybrid for creatives
Source: Zdnet.com English
The HP ZBook x2 G4 is a powerhouse for creative types, and has a lot going for it. The bezel shortcuts for pen users are a highlight, and the pen itself is superb. The detachable configuration has been well thought-out and well implemented. However, the audio subsystem is disappointing and moderate battery life will rule out some use cases.

94% 2018 HP ZBook X2 G4 review: This is the best detachable workstation for creative professionals
Source: Techaeris English
There is no doubt in my mind, the HP ZBook X2 G4 is the best detachable PC for creators and artists. It has the power and features under the hood to satisfy the work needs of photographers, designers, videographers, and artists. I wouldn’t recommend this device for the average consumer just looking to do basic work or even basic Adobe work. This is a power users device and it’s a stellar one at that.

The HP ZBook x2 is a powerful art tool, but other machines offer stronger graphics and its price may limit it to professionals.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
