HP’s new line of business laptops have a modular design

NEW YORK — Businesses are going mobile, and with its new line of designed-for-business mobile devices, Hewlett-Packard Co. is betting that detachables will be the form factor of choice for the mobile executive.

As a press event this week in New York City, HP debuted eight new mobile devices that were designed from the ground-up to meet the needs of business users and the security and management needs of the IT department.

The flagship offering is HP’s new detachable, the HP Elite x2 1011 G1.  It’s a 11.6” 2-in-1 Windows 8 Pro device that transitions easily from laptop to tablet and is available in an Ultrabook configuration. An ecosystem of optional accessories is available, including a WiGig enterprise wireless dock.

It runs Windows 8.1, Pro and is powered by 5th generation Intel Core M processors with optional vPro technology.  Memory tops out at 8GB and up to 512GB of storage is available. Security features include TPM and a fingerprint reader.

In this video, HP product manager Derek Everet walks us through the tablet/ultrabook hybrid.
