HP Elite x2 1012 G1 Hybrid Specifications & Price in Nigeria

HP’s 11.6-inch Elite X2 1012 pays obvious homage to Microsoft’s successful Surface Pro 4, and also competes with the recently reviewed Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet. With a starting price of £660 (ex. VAT, or £792 inc. VAT), including a basic Travel Keyboard, the Elite X2 1012 is competitively priced: Microsoft’s entry-level Core m3/4GB/128GB Surface Pro 4 costs £749 (inc. VAT) — but that’s without a Type Cover keyboard, which adds another £110 (inc. VAT). That sounds like good value for money, but does it deliver?
