One runs Android the other runs Windows 8
HP has announced the addition of two new products to its x2 detachable PC portfolio. The two machines include the HP SlateBook x2 and the Split x2. The SlateBook x2 is the first Android detachable device using the
NVIDIA Tegra 4 mobile processor
. HP promises that the device enables realistic gaming, speedy web browsing, and smooth HD video playback.
The Split x2 is a Microsoft Windows 8 device featuring a 13.3-inch HD display and an Intel Core processor. The machine is fitted with Beats Audio for high-quality sound and supports HP's Connected Music service. The Split can also be fitted with an optional hard drive in the base to expand storage capacity and has dual batteries with an extra battery in the base.
The SlateBook x2 is similar in design with a few major exceptions, such as running the Android 4.2.2 operating system -- it offers all of the Google experience services such as search, Gmail, YouTube, and more. It features a 10.1-inch HD resolution touchscreen, 64 MB of storage, and DTS Sound.
“Customers want to access and share content anywhere, anytime, on any internet connected device—and they expect those connections to be seamless,” said Ron Coughlin, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer PCs, HP. “The HP SlateBook x2 and the HP Split x2 are next-generation devices and the latest examples of our continued commitment to evolving the computing experience by providing the flexibility necessary for customers to be productive at home, at the office or on the go.”
Both these machines are expected to be available in the US in August. The SlateBook x2 will sell for $479.99 while the Split x2 will start at $799.95.

There is no Asus version with Core CPU, only Atom crap.
The only actually worthwhile contenders released so far are the MS Surface Pro and the Samsung Ativ SmartPC Pro. For some goddamn reason neither of them are available in my country. Lenovo Thinkpad Helix was supposed to give a new hope on this front but has been delayed so long already... Acer W700 is the only other thing that comes close but some retard manager that never actually used a windows tablet decided to skip on a digitizer for it, so it is out too.
There is some grand conspiracy going on to just never sell me a decent tablet, despite me wanting to give them my money for many years now.

Oh, I see the TX300 now, its a new release I didn't hear about. And again, it does not get a digitizer. Why don't they force the guys in charge of these decisions to actually use the products for a while? Then we would not get misunderstandings such as this one... anyone that has ever used a Wacom-enabled Windows tablet would never give it up.
