Battery life is definitely better than my old Surface Pro 3 (granted the Surface I had was a i7 so it used more battery). Using Windows battery report, I get about 6 hours of use under mixed CPU load and display brightness switching between 25% or 50%.
The major issue is not that it does not come with the Active Pen rather there is no clear indication as to which model Active Pen is compatible with it. After searching, I purchased Active Pen model: T5E12AA#ABL from hp.com
This Active Pen is described on the website and the documents that came with it to work with HP Spectre X2 12-a00xx (see pictures attached). Presumably, the xx represents any number. I have the Spectre X2 12-a008nr, so I am led to believe this Active Pen should work with my tablet. It does not work; when writing with it, it would randomly jitter or phantom writes crazy long lines (see video attached).
I called HP and spoke with 3 different people from tech support, HP Store Ordering and HP Store Return; I got 3 different answers if this Active Pen works with my Spectre X2 model; two said no and one said yes. I am now exchanging it for another one, hoping the one I got is broken.
The new one should be coming in in few days. If the new one does not work, I will exchange my Spectre X2 for another one. If it still does not work, I am going to return everything.
I will keep you folks posted. If everything works, I will change my rating of this product higher.
*Update 1/6/2017 - The replacement Active Pen came in from HP, same problem. I am now exchanging the Spectre X2 unit with Amazon. Thank goodness Amazon has a excellent return policy. Let's hope I actually get a brand new unit from Amazon and not a open box. If the replacement Spectre X2 does not work, I will be returning everything and will look for another Tablet.
*Update 1/12/2017 - The replacement Spectre X2 came in from Amazon and. . .everything is working as expected! So the issue was that I received a defective unit at the start. Therefore, I have just changed my rating to a 5 for this product.
*Update 1/25/2017 - Battery life is not the 6 hours I was getting in the old unit, I am getting on average 4.5 hours of mix use. Not sure what happened.
1. The kickstand: While at first its hard to get used to it, the kick stand lets you use the computer screen at nearly any angle you want, even when the keyboard is not attached. Plus, it gives it a unique design that many people have complimented me on.
2. Same specs as the surface pro 4, except it comes with a keyboard: The 4GB RAM, the 128 GB of memory, and the Core m3 processor are the same thing you would expect from a Surface pro 4 entry level, except this elegant computer also comes with a back-lit keyboard that would otherwise cost you extra money. The Core m3 processor allows you to use the computer on any kind of surface without the computer heating up. Also, because the computer does not need a fan, there are no background noises coming from the computer. While it is not the most high-end in the Core m series, it runs fast and smooth for most people who do not need it for full-time video editing or full-time gaming.
3. THE 3D CAMERA: This computer comes with the coolest thing ever ! A 3D camera! I have been able to use it to 3D scan real people. I guess this is more of a feature for people who like digital design and graphics, but I have to say I'm really impressed! At first I couldn't really use it, but once I updated the camera's software It worked really well, and the Intel RealSense website has many apps you can use with the 3D camera. It lets you have amazing video effects, scan people, and soon there will be an app to make your 3D scans turn into video game characters. I actually really got into 3D modeling thanks to this computer.
4. Runs Photoshop and other software: many people have been scared that the computer's lower specs when it comes to RAM and storage may inhibit it from running high-end software, but I have light photoshop, GIMP, and even Autodesk Meshmixer for 3D modeling, and while Meshmixer crashed once, I have had no trouble ever since.
5. Elegant and portable design: The keyboard looks really smooth, it is metal, and the back of it is a very elegant cotton-like surface. the screen and the back of the computer also look really nice with the metal HP logo on the back. The kickstand is very sturdy and pretty. I have received many compliments on it.
** Also, taking notes in class and drawing with the touch capability has been great, and it has made me be more organized. You can buy a pen for the computer as it is supported, which I plan to do for Christmas, but even without a pen, I am very pleased with note taking. I recommend apps such as NovaMind and Notebook Pro.
And now to the negatives:
1. The speakers: as other reviewers said, the speakers are not as powerful as I had hoped, and its hard to hear anything in a big classroom or when you are with a lot of people. However, if you put headphones in, or add a Bluetooth speaker or Bluetooth headphones of choice you will be fine, and the truth is I have barely even had the need to use my speakers as I use this laptop for more personal use.
2. The computer has no USB Type A ports: While I absolutely love the idea of using only the more modern USB type C ports, most flash-drives and other devices still use USB type A ports. This means that I have to use the adapter to connect any flash drive or other device. The good thing is that the computer comes with an adapter already, but it is small and somewhat easy to lose. I have no problem with this as I save most of my data and documents on the cloud, but someone who uses USB type A ports a lot may have an issue with this.
3. No DVD drive: I don't really use DVD's or CD's much, but this may be a problem for someone who does.
4. At first, the keyboard would not be detected sometimes by the computer if I took it out and put it back on, but i found out that if you turn on and off the sticky keys feature, the problem gets fixed (you can look it up with cortana or just go to Settings> Ease of Access> Keyboard, and just turn on an doff the feature. I have only had to do this once.
Conclusion: the HP spectre x2 offers a modern, portable, smooth device for an incredible price. It is perfect for personal use and for students who are looking for a good laptop without having to use up a lot of money. It is perfect for digital drawing and design and for exploring 3D modeling especially at a beginner level. The computer is more than enough for anyone who just needs it for light use and goes beyond expectations. Traveling with the computer has been really easy and the back-lit keyboard is perfect for when you are stuck in a bus or car at night and need to quickly type something. It has a good innovative design, and is very elegant. The speakers are not very loud and there are no USB type A ports, but it comes with an adapter and for the price I would say its definitely a deal. If you are looking for a computer for business, the HP spectre x360 may be a better option, and if you need it for heavy video editing or heavy use of Meshmixer and other 3D modeling apps, you may want to upgrade the RAM or memory. Other than that though, I would say it is a great computer, and totally worth the buy.
Feel free to contact me for any questions and I would love to help!

Verizon 4g LTE network works well on it
Biggest cons are:
No accessories actually fit or are designed for it. Not even screen protector this is basically the cheap baby version of the Spectre 360/13.
It will not power up correctly at times. It will just sit in off or sleep mode.
