After being announced in April, the detachable HP Chromebook X2 is heading to Australia this month, but it’s going to be expensive.
The HP Chromebook X2 is the first detachable Chromebook to launch. The innovative keyboard attachment offers several form factors including the option to detach the tablet portion entirely, use it in the clamshell laptop style form factor or flip the screen around into a tablet form-factor with the keyboard on the rear.
