The new xTool P2 laser cutter is the latest digital crafting machine from one of the leading brands in this field, and promises to be one of this year's hottest gadgets for serious crafters and small businesses alike. After two years of research and design, the xTool P2, a powerful new CO2 laser cutter and engraver, will launched this month. So what is it, and why should you be hyped?

First, let's recap. xTool won a Red Dot Design Award for its xTool M1 laser cutter and engraver, and in my xTool M1 review I found this to be an incredibly approachable and useful craft machine. But it has some limitations, for example its 10 watt diode laser can't match the speed and accuracy of a CO2 laser, which is where the new xTool P2 comes in.
