HP shows the future of computing! HP's vision for the future of consumer and enterprise pocketable electronics, the Windows 10 Continuum enabled HP Elite x3 running on the super fast 14nm (Samsung Fab) Snapdragon 820. HP offers DeskDock with USB Type-C, Gigabit Ethernet, 2x USB2, DisplayPort, USB Type-C. It outputs to a large display, with an RF or Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. HP Elite X3 has a 5.96" 2K 2560x1440 Super AMOLED with 550nits brightness "best in class".4GB LPDDR4 RAM. 64GB internal with Dual Nano SIM that can also be One Nano SIM and one MicroSD card slot. "Best in class" single touch fingerprint scanner. A second biometric authentication is the iris scanner. IP67 waterproof 1.5m for 30 minutes "all sealed". Shock-proof with Gorilla Glass. 4150mAh battery. HP even shows their "empty" 12.8" thin bezel Laptop Dock "mobile extender" under 1kg to be powered by this amazing phone! The Laptop dock also miracast wirelessly. Bang and olufsen sound. Pogopins on the back of the phone allows it to extend with Smart back-cases, a POS (point of sale) solution and I also suggest them in the video to do an E Ink back-case for long battery life sunlight readable e-reading. Everybody at Microsoft, Qualcomm, HP and even Marc Benioff CEO of Salesforce is excited about this product. HP talks about running their virtualization engine to run any x86 app through the cloud. This looks like they are all going to make sure this product gets successfully deployed on the market by Summer this year.
I think that HP should try to price the full bundle at below the current price of a high-end iPhone/Samsung, thus below $700 including the Desktop, keyboard/mouse and also including the "empty" 12.8" Laptop Dock. The Desktop Dock needs a HDMI output. Of course I'd like to finally see Google supply an Android Continuum UI alternative solution at Google I/O. I also perhaps think that Microsoft's Continuum dock is better with a cable and the phone on the table than having it docked upright.
This video compares the Haier Chromebook 11E on Rockchip RK3288 with the Samsung Chromebook 2 on Intel N2840. They are also being compared by Moor Insights and Strategy at https://www.slideshare.net/slideshow/embed_code/key/cor4EPWfvP97lt There are several other "latest" Intel Chromebooks from Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo, Asus, Acer, HP which all are running on N2840 Celeron, or N2830 Celeron, and thus for all these, Rockchip can claim to have better value, better performance and better battery life. Thus to be best suited for the worldwide education market.
Here are some of the numbers claimed in favor of the ARM Powered Chromebook in the case of RK3288 vs N2840:
80% better video performance
32% faster multi-tasking
37% faster app loading
265% faster 3D graphics
31% better power consumption for online video, Google Docs and Gmail
I have already been testing the Haier 11E as my main laptop over the last 6 months, and I can tell you that it performs absolutely great. There were some WiFi disconnect issues but I think those have been solved by Google's automatic software updates to the Chromebook. I will post a new video with my Haier 11E Chromebook soon so check back for that.

DisplayPort has been implemented over USB Type-C, showcased in products such as the Microsoft Continuum products, Apple, Dell, Lenovo also have laptops that output video using DisplayPort over USB Type-C. Then the dock or adapter outside may then convert DisplayPort to HDMI, VGA and DisplayPort output.
