HP Envy X2 (11-g012nr)

 

The HP Envy X2 (11-g012nr) is a detachable tablet laptop with a screen that can be detached from the keyboard and used as a standalone tablet. Running Windows 8 (32-bit) rather than the hobbled Windows RT seen on the Asus Vivo Tab RT, the HP Envy X2...

Sleek-looking, comfortable design. Portability and productivity in one device. Windows 8. All-day battery life

Atom processor. Pricey for an underpowered device

The HP Envy X2 (11-g012nr) is a slick-looking detachable tablet laptop with all-day battery life, but some may balk at price and the limitations of an Atom processor.

HP Envy x2 review: Half-tablet, half-laptop, all Atom

 

The HP Envy x2's biggest selling points are its high-quality build and included full keyboard accessory.

The HP Envy x2 has a clean, comfortable design and feels lightweight in tablet form. It has excellent battery life, and works just as well as a laptop as it does as a tablet.

The laptop mode is top-heavy, and the awkward tablet detachment mechanism isn’t perfect; it has limited ports; and a slower Atom processor means in performance it's far behind most ultrabooks, even though it’s priced like one.

The HP Envy x2’s capacity to be a full Windows 8 tablet or dock with a keyboard works as well as advertised, provided you’re willing to live with slower performance at a high price. You’re paying for style.

HP Envy x2 review

 

The more Windows 8 devices I review, the more refined my idea of a perfect Windows PC becomes. A convertible device (a tablet and dock) makes the most sense for me, but I need full-blown Windows 8,...

Good-looking design ; Feels at home as both a tablet and laptop ; Good keyboard and trackpad

Atom chip isn't up to any intensive tasks ; Display is weak for a tablet ; A few small features missing, like USB 3.0 and backlit keys

If 'netbook' weren't a bad word, I'd call it a netbook

HP Envy x2

 

The HP Envy x2 offers long battery life and a responsive Windows 8 touch experience in a lightweight hybrid design, but you get netbook-like performance.

Sharp colorful screen; Attractive lightweight design; Long battery life with dock

Stiff uncomfortable typing experience; Netbook-level performance; Mediocre battery life without dock

Click to EnlargeThe HP Envy x2 provides a solid Windows 8 tablet experience with its premium design and colorful screen. Although you get below-average endurance from the slate by itself, we appreciate the nearly 12 hours of battery life supplied by...

HP Envy X2 Windows 8 hybrid tablet/notebook review - Liliputing

 

At first glance, HP’s Envy X2 looks like an ultraportable laptop. And with an 11.6 inch display and a QWERTY keyboard, it kind of is. But you can also eject the screen from the keyboard and use the X2 as a tablet

HP Envy X2 hybrid PC

 

The Envy X2 is a two-in-one product: it can be used as a tablet or as a notebook thanks to the supplied dock

Can be used as a tablet or as a notebook ; Runs Windows 8 ; Battery life can be extended through the keyboard dock

Performance was sometimes very sluggish ; Touchpad didn't always work properly ; Screen flickering issue ; Slow storage

HP's Envy X2 hybrid is decent if you are looking for a Windows 8 tablet that can also be used for long typing sessions. However, we experienced sluggish performance, a screen that flickered, and a touchpad that sometimes refused to work properly. These...

HP Envy X2 review

 

Too slow to be a laptop and too mediocre as a tablet, the only thing going for the Envy X2 is its long battery life

The HP Envy X2 is one of many poorly designed and poorly thought out Windows 8 tablet/laptop hybrids. We would have hoped it would come down more in price since it launched, but at £650 it is still difficult to recommend.
