HP Pavilion x2 12” 2-in-1 Touchscreen Laptop (Manufacturer Refurbished)
HP’s laptop has a detachable screen so you can use it like a tablet whenever touchscreen control is more convenient. However, it’s fully equipped with the power of a traditional laptop, from a dual-core processor to bells and whistles like a webcam and better-than-1080p display.
Touchscreen Display: Tablet-Like Control
Zoom in on photos, 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. For more traditional tasks, such as answering emails, you can move back to the keyboard at any time.
Seamless Digital Organization with Cortana
Designed to keep you organized and informed, Cortana is a nimble digital assistant that works on every Windows 10 device. The program helps you set time-, person-, or location-based reminders, then pushes them out to your compatible PC, tablet, and smartphone simultaneously when needed. On compatible devices, Cortana also recognizes voice commands and lets you dictate emails with ease.
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 within your computer, and are less susceptible to damage and data loss from computer bumps.
Video Chat with Anyone, Anywhere
A built-in webcam can make it feel like people miles away are in the room with you, helping you connect more clearly than with a phone call or email. Collaborate with colleagues in other offices, listen as your niece or nephew rapturously explains their finger painting, or laugh every time your friend’s cat walks across their keyboard.

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.
