The x2 is the first laptop to offer a 30-bit 4K stylus-supporting display.

HP says it worked closely with Adobe when developing the ZBook x2 (seen here running Photoshop), which isn't surprising given the laptop's feature set.

You can see how it tilts up when attached, though you can also make it lie flat.

Because it's running a quad-core CPU and midrange Nvidia Quadro GPU, it can generate a lot of heat. HP incorporated two fans and venting everywhere to compensate.

When detached, the keyboard connects to the tablet via Bluetooth so you can still use it.

Here, you can see the keyboard lying flat and the kickstand hinge, which draws its design from HP's Spectre and Envy lines.

The speakers fire up, which is suboptimal, but a small trade-off.

It has a pretty nice set of connections given its size; smart card and SD card slots, a USB Type-A, full-size HDMI and two USB-C Thunderbolt ports.

HP does a pretty good job with its keyboards, and the touchpad is relatively large.

It feels rigid enough to stand up to inking.

HP uses Wacom's EMR technology for its stylus, and the weight and balance feel pretty similar to Wacom's versions. Here it sits in my pudgy hand.

Along the sides of the display are two sets of buttons that can be programmed with up to 18 shortcuts, very much like a Wacom Intuos or MobileStudio.

It has a similar weighted feel to Wacom's latest versions. (On a side note, I have no idea what those brown spots are on my wrist. They are not there in real life.)

Wow. This shot is full of optical illusions. It makes the x2 look like it was designed by Escher.

It's got HP's standard webcam and an IR camera for Windows Hello. The cameras are the one disappointment on the x2.
