Detailed review
I had succumb to the iPhone world but still holding out hope that Microsoft and Partners would come out with a viable Ultrabook alternative so that I could run all of my office software. This thing was well worth the wait. It handle multimedia, office suite and even 3D CAD image viewer n with ease. HP has been a bit shakey but this is product is a home run. I could hardly be more pleased. A nice surprise was when I was able to execute a contract by loading a free PDF editor app and signing contract while on the road. The detachable tablet is a cool feature that I may never use, but I love that it gave HP the opportunity to put batteries in both. The battery life is shockingly good. I dont know when I'll get to use the NFC chip, but it's interesting to consider what I may be able to do with it whenever other devices catch up to this dynamic machine.
