HP Spectre x2 12” 2-in-1 Laptop with 4G LTE for Verizon and Windows 10 Home OS (Manufacturer Refurbished)
The HP Spectre x2 saves you the trouble of choosing a laptop or a tablet: it’s both, working as a full-featured laptop around the house until you detach the touchscreen and take it on the road as a flexible tablet. A vibrant 1080p display presents documents, TV shows, and movies with equal clarity whether you’re watching from a hotel bed or during your daily commute.
Detachable Touchscreen Display
Film your child’s recital, jump to the next story on news apps, or play a mobile game on a bigger screen—all without using the keyboard or touchpad. A touchscreen display expands your control, giving you more ways to interact with apps and programs that support touch gestures. To tackle more traditional tasks, such as answering emails, you can easily reconnect the keyboard.
HDTV Picture on a Smaller Screen
By packing more than 2 million pixels into the display, 1080p Full HD resolution—the same found on many HDTVs—shows off photos, movies, and text with a high degree of detail. Faces come to life in video chats, and movies and photos appear so sharp and realistic that the travel-size screen will feel more like your own personal jumbotron.
Solid-State Drive: Speed and Reliability
The built-in solid-state drive (SSD) performs the same duties of a traditional hard-disk drive, but up to 100 times faster. Unlike hard-disk drives, SSDs don’t rely on moving parts to write, store, and retrieve data; instead, they use flash memory chips that can boot up your computer and launch apps in mere seconds. Without the moving parts, SSDs are also lighter, take up less space, and are less susceptible to damage and data loss from bumps.

When iconic company HP was born in 1939, it was not in a gleaming laboratory or during a late-night study session at a prestigious university. It was in a 12’x18’ garage that contained only a workbench and a used drill press. University friends Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard sold audio equipment to Disney (which used them during Fantasia production) and became HP soon after. Their humble garage is now marked with a plaque bearing the title “Birthplace of Silicon Valley.”
HP’s innovations laid the groundwork for the Valley’s surge in technological advances. Between the creation of the first handheld computer, which connected to printers and cassette drives, and development of speedier 64-bit processing technology currently used by brands like Apple and Microsoft, HP cemented itself as an architect of current tech trends like the tablet and smartphone. It’s a community-conscious company, too; HP has donated to charity since 1940 and offers free recycling for all electronics, regardless of brand, at Staples.
