Mobile World Congress usually focuses on phones and phone-related technology, but even so we're still going to see a few companies announce new PCs that didn't quite make the cut for CES in January. HP's new Pro x2 612 G2, a $979 Microsoft Surface clone that launches today, is one such machine.
The Pro x2 is a follow-up of sorts to the the Elite x2, a Skylake-based tablet we reviewed last spring. We came away generally impressed by its build quality, ports, and features, and its keyboard cover was more than a match for Microsoft's. It was a bit thicker than the Surface Pro 4, it had a somewhat lower-resolution screen, and the processors it offered weren't as fast—three shortcomings the new version does nothing to correct—but nevertheless it remains an interesting option for businesses and for people who are just more comfortable when they're able to easily upgrade and repair their systems themselves.
