There’s no other way to say it, Chromebooks have come a long way.

HP comes out swinging with the Chromebook X2

The HP Chromebook X2 is a well-built premium detachable running Chrome OS, which is both the biggest strength and greatest limitation of the device. I say this because Google’s ChromeOS has a reputation for not being good for much more than Web browsing and watching videos. But over the last few years, there have been tons of changes made to being the operating system up to snuff with MacOS and Windows 10. Read on for more info about that, but for now let’s check out the internals of the HP Chromebook X2.

I have to admit the hardware is premium, from the Pogo Keyboard to the aluminum trimmed tablet – the X2’s build quality is top-notch. The stainless steel and ceramic build of the top-screen half, where all of the internals reside, is light thin. The weight of the internals, from the Hard Drive to the Processor – are evenly balanced along the 2K Display. Yes ladies and gentleman,the HP Chromebook X2 is a well designed and engineered device.

Chrome + Linux + Android Apps = 
ChromeOS for the General Consumer

 

 The HP Chromebook X2 keeps the latest version of Chrome installed, as the OS updates automatically during reboot. As of today (12/6/2018) its running on Chrome OS 71.0.3578.85. The 12.3-inch display packs 2400 x 1600 pixels across its vibrant screen. The Chromebook X2 sports the same display that you’ll find on the Google’s 2017 Pixelbook.

You wouldn’t be blamed for assuming that Chrome OS is nothing more than a glorified browser with web shells posing as apps – IF this was last year. But now, the light web-centic OS has two tricks up it’s sleeve; Android andLinux apps.

These two features open up productivity and work options that make Chromebooks one step closer to being an all-around, do all platform. The inclusion of the Google Play store means tools like Microsoft Office, Powerdirector (Video Editing) and Adobe Touch Apps, and FL Studio Mobile (Music Production) are now available for ChromeOS – even if these apps arent as full featured as their Desktop counterparts.

 When it comes to multitasking and stability, HP’s Chromebook X2 holds it’s own against the Surface and Macbook Pros of the world.

Linux Apps on the other hand, (which were just released out of beta) – is a bit rough around the edges. Programs now have been granted storage access along with Chrome and Android apps, but features like audio or video streaming and recording aren’t available from Linux Apps/Programs as of today (12-7-2018).
