HP ZBook x2
Source: PC Mag English
With workstation-grade components, the HP ZBook x2 packs more power than most detachable-hybrid 2-in-1 laptops. It's a good fit for for artists, 4K videographers, and anyone who needs massive power in a versatile form factor.

HP ZBook x2 brings a tear-off keyboard and 4K 10-bit color
Source: CNet English
As for the internals, while it uses eighth-gen Intel Core chips, those are still based on a tweaked version of last year's Kaby Lake architecture and the integrated graphics are just rebranded from last year's. That's unavoidable; Intel still hasn't shipped Coffee Lake-based mobile CPUs. But given how much the high-end configuration will probably cost, I'd be tempted to wait and at least get a sense of how much of an improvement the desktop Coffee Lake processors deliver. More cores for a workstation are more important than in a consumer laptop.

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.

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.
