Alongside many of its premium reveals, HP has also introduced the Elite x2 1013 G2. The Elite x2 is being billed as the world's smallest business detachable and comes with upgraded internals, ultra-thin bezels, and two high resolution display options.

HP has introduced refreshed premium business devices and one of them is the Elite x2 1013 G3. The Elite 1013 G3 is a significant upgrade over last year's Elite x2 1012 G2 and offers a 13-inch display in almost the same size as the 1012 G2's 12-inch chassis.

Specs wise, the 1013 G3 has much more power under the hood compared to the 1012 G2 thanks to CPU options from the Intel Core i3-8130U to the Core i7-8650U. While the available CPU options means that the tablet can cater to most business needs, it also means that there is no fanless design. The side bezels have been drastically trimmed but not too thin that you cannot hold the tablet with your thumbs.

Up to 16 GB RAM and up to 1 TB PCIe NVMe SSD storage can be configured. The Elite x2 1013 G3 comes in two display options — 1920 x 1280 and 3000 x 2000. The tablet also offers a decent enough port selection for its size with a Thunderbolt 3, 2 USB Type-C, and a combo headphone jack. There's the usual suite of HP features such as B&O-tuned speakers, HP's collaboration tools, and HP Sure View for screen privacy. The tablet has an 8 MP rear camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, and an IR camera for Windows Hello. HP offers optional 4G LTE connectivity as well.

The tablet comes bundled with HP's Active Pen that charges via an USB Type-C port. 

The Elite x2 1013 G3 will retail from June this year starting from US$1,499.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
