HP Pavilion 12 x2: Wacom AES digitizer and Atom x7 confirmed by HP

Scritto da Giacomo Fumagalli. Pubblicato in News, News and Articles

Hewlett-Packard releases the HP Pavilion 12 x2 (12-b000 series) Maintenance and Service Guide, that unveils in details the technical specifications of this new hybrid Tablet PC: under the chassis there are a Wacom Active ES digitizer and an Intel Atom x7 option.

During CES 2016, Hewlett-Packard unveiled the Pavilion 12 x2, an enlarged and more powerful version of the Pavilion 10 x2 (10-n*00 series). Few days before the global availability, the Maintenance and Service Guide has been released, unveiling some (very) interesting features.

First of all, the new Pavilion 12 x2 uses a Wacom Active Electro-Static (AES) digitizer. The Guide shows that the new 12-inch hybrid is compatible with the HP Active Stylus Pen (spare part number 834590-001): it is the same spare part number of the HP x2 Active Pen offered with the 8-inch HP ENVY 8 Note 5000 Tablet PC, that uses Wacom AES technology. The presence of Wacom digitizer, with a 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity, is a huge improvement for this device, since it is far superior to 256-levels-sensible Synaptics digitizer used in Pavilion 10 x2 (10-n*00 series) or 2015-launched x360 convertibles.

An unexpected good news arrives also from a processor point of view: during the CES, HP unveiled a Intel Atom x5-Z8500 version of the tablet, and a more powerful Intel Core m3-6Y30 edition. According to the Maintenance and Service Guide, a Intel Atom x7-Z8700 processor sided by 4 GB of RAM will be available – it is the same CPU used into the Microsoft Surface 3.

The HP Pavilion 12 x2 (12-b000 series) is expected to be available worldwide next month. The Wacom AES stylus will be included into the box.
