HP announced the HP ZBook x2, a 14" workstation that's detachable. The ZBook x2 is powered by quad core Intel CPU and NVIDIA Quadro graphics. Here's more info on this upcoming HP workstation laptop:

The HP ZBook x2 features a fully-machined, aluminum and die-cast magnesium body starting at just 3.64 pounds and 14.6 mm thin when in tablet mode, and 4.78 pounds and 20.3 mm in laptop mode. The HP ZBook x2 has a stunning 14-inch diagonal, 4K multi-touch display with an optional 10-bit, one-billion color HP DreamColor display calibrated to 100 percent of Adobe RGB. The HP ZBook x2 has the world's most advanced detachable PC display16 and includes an anti-glare touchscreen allowing users to immerse themselves while working in any lighting condition. At the desk, it can power dual 4K displays from the HP ZBook Dock with Thunderbolt 37.

This detachable PC has up to 10 hours of battery life for maximum productivity and ultra-fast recharge (50 percent in just 30 minutes8). The HP ZBook x2 offers up to 4.2 GHz of Intel Turbo Boost, 32 GB RAM over dual channels for more responsiveness under heavier workloads like complex layering in Photoshop. The model's HP Z Turbo Drive storage is up to 6X faster than SATA SSD and up to 21X faster than traditional HDD storage. The HP ZBook x2 offers up to 2 TB9 of local PCIe storage and incorporates a full-sized SD card slot, perfect for professional photographers. Using the dock or Thunderbolt 3 ports on the HP ZBook x2, it can transfer large files from cameras, external storage, phones and other peripherals.

Designed to go anywhere and handle the toughest workloads, the HP ZBook x2 mobile workstation is designed to pass MIL-STD 810G testing14. The HP ZBook x2 also undergoes dozens of tests for certification and optimized performance with the industry's leading software providers like Adobe and Autodesk.

The HP ZBook x2 operates in four modes: laptop, detached, docked and tablet.

In laptop mode, the HP ZBook x2 is a powerful mobile workstation with a keyboard leveraged from the HP ZBook Studio.

In detached mode, it allows users to create on the tablet with HP's most accurate and expressive pen while still having full access to all of their shortcut keys with the Bluetooth(R)-enabled keyboard off to the side.

In docked mode, the HP ZBook x2 can power two additional 4K displays or five total displays.

In tablet mode, it maintains full graphics performance allowing users to capture ideas with powerful NVIDIA 3D graphics.
Using HP's most natural pen with the HP ZBook x2, users can create without interruption as the pen never needs to be charged. The battery-less, HP-designed pen based on Wacom EMR technology, responds instantly to every nuance of the artist's hand for natural motion. The HP ZBook x2 offers 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity with multi-directional tilt capabilities and includes a dedicated eraser.
