HP officially reveals its Surface Pro clone, the Spectre x2

As previously rumored, HP has now officially revealed the Spectre x2. The 2-in-1 tablet resembles the Surface Pro 3 visually, but has some differences as well.

While HP's own press announcement doesn't have much in terms of details, Engadget got some hands-on time with the Spectre x2. Buyers can pick either the Intel Core m3, m5 and m7 processors to place inside, along with either 4GB of 8GB of RAM and choices of 128GB, 256GB or 512GB for internal storage. The 12-inch display will have a resolution of 1920x1280. The built-in kickstand is U-shaped which allows the tablet to be thinner, and it also allows the kickstand to be adjusted for any angle.

The HP Spectre x2 weighs 1.85 pounds with just the tablet, but increases to 2.69 pounds with its included metal hardware keyboard. Pricing will begin at around $800 and it will be released on November 8.
