The new HP Elite x2 1011 G1 from distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC) offers the ultimate combination of tablet and ultrabook for stylish, compact business performance. On its own, the 11.6-inch display is a durable tablet optimised for touch and perfect for working on the move. Paired with the keyboard, the device transforms into a full-featured ultrabook, with the convenience of a keyboard and touchpad perfect for more intensive applications like word processing and spreadsheets.

“Tablets are one of the most revolutionary technologies of the past few years, taking mobility to a new level and enabling users to accomplish many more tasks on the move. However, the tablet has not yet managed to completely replace the notebook in terms of power and functionality. For this reason, many users have had to carry both devices with them, which is cumbersome and inconvenient. The new HP Elite x2 1011 G1 is the ultimate solution to this challenge, offering the compact form factor and durability of a tablet with the power and performance of a notebook for unsurpassed mobile productivity,” says Francois van Wijk, HP PSG Business Unit Manager at DCC.

The HP Elite x2 1011 G1 offers stylish performance and unmatched durability paired with HP’s leading security and manageability. An impressive 8GB of RAM ensures superior performance in either form factor, and up to 512GB of internal Solid State Drive (SSD) storage ensures plenty of drive space for important documents and files. The full sized HP Premium Keyboard offers crisp keystrokes and a tried and tested reflex hinge, so you can be sure your device will stand up to the rigours of the road.

The latest Intel Core M processor helps to improve performance and extend battery life, and both the tablet and the keyboard feature their own internal batteries to provide longer power on the move. Data and devices are protected with HP SureStart, HP BIOSphere, HP Client Security, Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and Self-Encrypting Drive (SED). An integrated smart card and fingerprint reader on the keyboard provide an addition security layer.

“One of the major innovations of the Elite x2 1011 G1 is the 5th Gen Intel Core M processor, which delivers blazing speeds and the highest levels of energy efficiency in a thin, fanless design ideal for performance mobile devices. The processor also offers additional built-in security features. This empowers two-in-one hybrid devices like the Elite x2 to deliver the optimal combination of business class performance and exceptional battery life. Users are now empowered to stay productive for longer, no matter where they are working,” van Wijk adds.

For enterprises, a number of features make integration simpler and easier to manage, including HP Client Management Solutions and Intel vPro.TM5. In addition, organisations can benefit from the stability of a long lifecycle and global series support. HP Touchpoint Manager helps organisations to manage data, security and devices from the cloud, while HP Care Services offers cost effective 24×7 support.

The HP Elite x2 1011 G1 also offers a range of business accessories aimed at boosting efficiency, including an optional enterprise wireless dock, power keyboard, lightweight travel keyboard and Wacom pen.

The HP Elite x2 1011 G1 is available from resellers and leading retailers for a recommended retail price starting at R21 000.00 inclusive of VAT.
