How are HP's "regurbs" anyway?

This is a pretty good deal. Def better than the X2 1011 deals from last month ($450). NotebookCheck [notebookcheck.net] notes that this is very comparable to other 2-and-1 tablets from the past year. Highlights from the review are: good battery life (~7h), good hardware/durability, mediocre color space. Notably, brightness uniformity is outstanding (97%) so you shouldn't notice any lightbleed. I would definitely buy this if I were in the market for a Surface Pro 3-like experience for productivity but didn't need color space. I'm sure the display is gorgeous though, even uncalibrated.

I'm really interested in the x2-1102, but I need a hinge. The FHD XPS 12-9250 is my sweetspot of features/compromises, but I have only found the 4K version. I'm starting to doubt that the FHD was even released. Maybe it was in press releases but cancelled and reviewers never got the memo.

In for two. Thanks OP.

This is a really good deal. I work for an HP partner and I can't get this brand new for under $1700 wholesale.

These are good. Normally I avoid the those come with 90 days warranty. This model is their one of the very high end Business models, costing over $1200 bucks. Also they come with 1 year HP warranty, so you are pretty much covered if something goes wrong.

Ok, that went well... so to be more literal:

Please edit your title and fix the word "regurb" to "refurb"--could help with alerts for those seeking this.

I kind of agree with you but I have more and more clients willing to work on the 12 inch screens. I got one for me and one for the wife. We will be using them as mostly personal and travel devices which they are perfect for.

Why Surface devices have 12" screen then?

A few questions for those more familiar:
  • Does this support DDR4?
  • What is the max RAM this can have?
  • How is this processor compared to to something like the previous or current i5 generations? Can it handle fairly heavy photoshop usage?
Thanks!

Core M does not support DDR4 but it comes with fast DDR3 1866MHz Ram. And it is not an upgradable tablet. What you are seeing if final, you cannot upgrade it.

But I am not seeing any reason to do so, there won't be any performance improvement by adding 16GB ram to a Core M CPU.

And regarding Core M, they are fanless processors with very low TDP value of 4.5W 6.5W, compared to a Core i U series processor with 15W TDP.
In short burst, this model can perform like a Core i5-6200 but the performance will decrease significantly if the CPU load lasts for long due to thermal limit. Don't buy it if you are planning to regular Photo Editing.

I just bought the Acer Switch Alpha 12 for $500. I like it but compared to the Elite x2 the Alpha is a pound heavier, shorter battery life by 2-3 hours, and no fingerprint scanner or Thunderbolt 3.

I'm hesitant to pull the trigger here solely based on the keyboard magnet setup. Is it prone to breaking?

This has DDR3 and its soldered on so no upgrade. The only thing you can upgrade is the SSD. Notebook check says this about the CPU

While the CPU may be almost similar to a Core i5-6200U (Skylake, 15 W) in short benchmarks, its performance will fall short of a Core i3-6100U under continuous full load.
