Review HP Envy x2 11-g000eg Tablet

 

Runtime miracle. HP launches a slim Windows 8 tablet on the market, which mutates to a full-blown laptop via the keyboard dock, dubbed Envy x2 11. An energy-efficient Atom SoC from Intel not only ensures exceptional battery runtimes, but also modest...

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

The tablet provides lengthy runtimes owing to the combination of two batteries alongside a very low power consumption, which were yet unknown in Windows devices. Depending on the load, the Envy lasts up to 20 hours without the PSU - record-breaking

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

 

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, not Windows RT and its lack of app support. I've found...

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

Consumer review by:

"Sleek design and full Win8 os."

 

I got this as a second computer to my i3 laptop I already had at home. I just needed something that was more road worthy and portable. I was intrigued by the idea of also having the ability to make it to a tablet as well.

-Design is eye catching

-Atom processor is no i-series and it shows when multi-tasking

Consumer review by:

"One Fridge-Toaster to Rule Them All"

 

I have never identified myself with the tablet crowd. By and large, tablets seem like gimmicky devices with only a handful of productive use cases. For the kind of money that premium tablets cost, I would much rather own a computer.

- Windows 8 UI is a dream to use on a touch screen
