Review HP Envy x2 11-g000eg Tablet

 

Runtime miracle. HP launches a slim Windows 8 tablet on the marke

High-quality workmanship; Viewing angle stable IPS screen; Long battery life; Good input devices; Versatility; Low emissions; Memory expansion via SD card

USB 2.0 only; High price; Low computing power; No UMTS/LTE; Gaming unsuitable; Slow recharging

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

 

Take a tablet; add a keyboard. Turn it into a laptop. Do it with full Windows 8. This is the dream of the HP Envy x2, and the dream, it seems, of Windows 8 in general. Break down the barrier between tablets and PCs. Create progressive computing. The...

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

With the launch of Windows 8 this fall came a new generation of hybrid devices that can serve as laptops and then change into tablets or vice versa. An 11.6-inch Windows 8 notebook with a lid that pops off to become a standalone slate, the HP Envy x2...

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 Review and Ratings

 

HP's Envy x2 convertible walks a fine line between tablet and laptop. It is thin and light, gets up to 12 hours of battery life, has a nice IPS screen, and runs full Windows 8. But demanding users should steer clear, as performance is weak and you're...

Excellent battery life ; Stylish form and finish ; No internal fan ; High-resolution cameras

Only 2GB of RAM and cramped SSD ; Weak performance compared to comparably priced ultrabooks ; No USB 3.0 ports

Like so many convergence devices before it, the HP Envy x2 sets out to deliver a good experience as both a tablet and a laptop, and it compromises slightly on each. On the tablet front, the hardware and design deliver, but as yet, there just aren't...
