With just a few days to go until Windows 10 becomes available, it's a good time to get a good price on laptops that will qualify for the free Windows upgrade. The HP Pavilion x2 will get the free OS upgrade and is a 2-in-1 with a detachable tablet. It features a keyboard unit that turns the Pavilion x2 tablet into a full laptop ready to take advantage of Windows 10.
This system is not new but the pricing makes it worth a consideration. It's a great system for trying Windows 10 once it's released.
Looking around the web finds the HP Pavilion x2 available for as low as $262. This is a good price given the hardware configuration and great battery life:
- OS: Windows 8.1 (free upgrade to Windows 10)
- CPU: Intel Atom
- Display: 10.1-inch, 1280 x 800
- Memory / storage: 2GB / 32 GB (model available with 64GB storage for $313)
- Battery: 11.75 hours
The value of this 2-in-1 from HP is even higher with the included 1-year subscription to Office 365 with 1TB of cloud storage. Throw in the upgrade to Windows 10 and it's a capable system for under $300.
