The dock has two USB ports, an SD card slot, and HDMI port and a battery life of over 8 hours.

HP has priced the convertible competively, as well, at $479.99.

The Split x2 will run on Windows 8, a Core i3 processor, 4GB RAM, and a 500GB hard drive. The 13.3-inch screen has 1366 x 768 and battery life should be a bit over 5 hours. The Windows tablet will cost $799.

Kinda liking the Split X2.

Would rather have a MS Surface Pro though.....preferably with a 256GB SSD

Looks exactly like the transformer and many others that came before it. Is innovative design completely gone now or must every company copy from what came before?
