Design & Build

The HP Zbook X2 G4 is a workstation laptop and its design and form factor reflect that philosophy. It is made out of stiffened anodised aluminium and is designed to pass military-standard stress testing. In simpler words, it can withstand accidental drops without receiving critical damage. The device feels sturdy which showcases its productivity-focused aesthetics.

Furthermore, HP Zbook X2 G4 is a hybrid laptop which means it has a detachable keyboard. It implies that users can completely separate both halves and achieve mobile typing or complete tablet experience. Keep in mind that the device weighs a hefty 1.65kg even in tablet mode, so it is not ultra-portable as one would prefer. With the keyboard attached, it weighs in about 2.17 kg. 


The display of the HP Zbook X2 G4 is pretty vivid. The 14 inch 3840 X 2160px display panel is 4K matte screen which offers great viewing experience. It is a bright display and although it doesn’t have eye-catching colours one would see in a normal display; it has an anti-reflective screen that provides better readability even under bright light. Notably, the display is surrounded by thick bezels on all four sides. Nevertheless, the area is put to good use as the left and right bezels accommodate physical buttons to control features like volume and brightness.

Keyboard, Trackpad & Speakers

HP Zbook X2 G4 has a full-sized keyboard that accompanies it alongside a smooth trackpad. Users can choose between having it attached or detached or even opt for an on-screen keyboard in tablet mode. The keyboard gets the work done and typing experience on the machine is better than several other hybrid laptops with such thin keyboards. As previously mentioned, HP also offers Bang & Olufsen speakers with the laptop which are placed at the top of the display.

Being a workstation laptop, HP Zbook X2 G4 is shipped with an HP Pen. The stylus is found inside the accessory box and is a great offering for a productivity centric laptop. The pen can be used to take quick notes or make drawings and has precise registration on the display.


Since the HP Zbook X2 G4 is a device aimed at professionals, it features an eighth-gen Intel Core i7-8550U quad-core CPU. Besides, it is also equipped with 2GB GDDR5 NVIDIA Quadra M620 GPU which facilitates the graphic intensive tasks.

Key Specs:

  • 8 GB / 16GB RAM
  • Intel Core i7-8550U
  • 512GB PCIe M.2 SSD Storage
  • NVIDIA Quadro M620 (2GB GDDR5) GPU
  • 14-inch 4K AntiGlare LED-Backlit Display

As previously mentioned, the HP ZBook X2 G4 is designed while keeping professionals in mind, it has rear-facing air vents and dual fans that keep the temperatures under check even while running CPU intensive tasks. For average users, the device may be overkill but for professionals, it is a worthy productive machine in a compact form factor. 

Connectivity and Other Features

The HP Zbook X2 G4 is equipped with various ports that include 2x Thunderbolt ports, 3.5mm headphone jack and USB Type-C 3.1 ports. For wireless connectivity, the device includes both WiFi and Bluetooth.

Additionally, it also features a HD webcam at the front and an 8MP camera at the rear which can also capture 1080p videoes @30fps. Windows Hello facial recognition is also provided as the front camera is accompanied by IR sensors. For quick login, even a fingerprint scanner can be found on the right side of the device.
