HP Envy x2 15-c000ng Convertible Review

 

Fan-less. HP's 15.6-inch convertible wants to score with an energy-efficient processor from Intel's new Broadwell lineup, which enables a fan-less design in the Envy. A Full HD, IPS screen and good battery life are also part of the bundle.

High-contrast Full HD IPS screen, Appealing design, Decent battery life, Fan-less operation, Low power consumption, Keyboard backlight

No recovery DVD

HP's Envy x2 15-c000ng is the first device with a Core M-5Y10 processor that we have tested to date. The CPU fared well and can provide enough computing power for routine use. At the same time, it allows a fan-less design. Consequently, the Envy is...

HP Envy X2 Review

 

HP Envy X2 Review | This complete review of the Envy X2 tablet/laptop transformable covers the most important aspects, including ergonomics, performance, and battery life.

If you find its keyboard and trackpad are comfortable by possibly having a feel down at the local Best Buy or any other major retailer showcasing the HP Envy X2, and its low performance is something you can live with, then we certainly recommend you...

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, The Envy x2 is certainly not a cheap tablet. However, the mostly excellent build quality and...

USB 2.0 only, High price, Low computing power, No UMTS/LTE, Gaming unsuitable, Slow recharging, As we feared at the outset, the slow Atom processor proves to be an annoying brake in many situations. Although the SoC deals with multimedia tasks or...

HP Envy x2 review: a tablet / laptop hybrid that fails to deliver the complete package

 

The HP Envy x2 is an attractive laptop / tablet hybrid, but its Atom processor doesn't offer great performance, and its keyboard disappoints.

Slick, lightweight design ; Good battery life (in laptop mode) ; Decent IPS display

Uncomfortable keyboard ; Netbook-grade performance

Laptop / tablet hybrids have their work cut out for them: providing a fluid experience as both a portable slate and a productivity-minded laptop -- let alone with an Atom processor doing the grunt work -- is a tall order. Making the design comfortable...

HP ENVY x2 Review

 

The HP ENVY x2 is an attractive laptop/tablet hybrid with Windows 8 and great battery but limited performance.

Excellent battery life of 11+ hours in laptop mode ; Great tablet experience with excellent docking mechanism ; Fully fledged Windows 8, no watered down Windows RT ; Great brushed aluminum design and solid build quality

Limited storage space and SSD relatively slow ; Intel Atom processor is slow ; Low screen resolution and no pen input ; Keyboard and touchpad are so-so

If you want both a tablet and laptop, the HP ENVY x2 is a compelling offering. It has a premium look and build quality, the dock and latch mechanism are awesome. It’s just so easy to put the tablet portion into the keyboard dock, and once there it...

HP Envy x2 Review

 

The 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 the dock and...

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

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