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.

Your point may fly for laptops with some people (even though I don't agree even in that case) but for tablets is absolutely wrong.
Have you ever rotated your laptop in portrait mode? I guess no. But for a tablet, that is not uncommon, so 1920x1080 not only makes sense, but is a must.
Or do you mean to tell me you know of even a single website that fits in under 1024 horizontal pixels?
