It seems that Google is betting heavily on the Chrome OS system on tablets and with the new HP Chromebook X2 we have powerful hardware at a fairly tight price, a product that is in line with the Samsung Chromebook Pro we saw a while ago. No doubt the recent compatibility of Chrome OS with Android applications has given a new life to this environment that was previously very limited by the number of applications available.
