Review HP Split x2 Convertible

 

Two times the fun. The pricey but well-received Envy x2 has promp

Ivy Bridge and Haswell ULV CPU options with HD 4000/4400 graphics; Well-built with above-average rigidity; Primary mSATA SSD and optional secondary drive via docking station; Primary and secondary batteries for longer runtimes; RAM, mSATA and secondary...

Low brightness and low contrast; Difficult to use under sunlight; Not designed for outdoor use; Budget TN panel discourages portrait mode; Wobbly hinges; No higher resolution options; Back panels can be difficult to remove; not friendly for end-user...

Dual battery packs and dual storage drives are uncommon for tablet convertibles. RAM, mSATA and half-mini PCI-e upgrades can give the tablet longer legs.

HP Split 13 x2

 

HP's 13-inch laptop/tablet hybrid is a strong concept, but the execution could be better.

Tablet portion is fairly light at 1.06kg ; Hybrid storage system is smart and useful ; Performs well in lightweight web and productivity tasks

Screen resolution could be a bit higher ; Limited battery life for the weight and dual-battery setup ; Struggles with fancy flash games and graphical tasks ; Tablet and dock are heavy together at 2.2kg

It’s a great concept and while the execution leaves something to be desired – particularly in weight and battery life – HP’s Split 13 x2 proves itself a useful piece of technology nonetheless. Great as a mobile presentation tool, or as a hybrid...

HP Split x2 review - Pocket-lint

 

There's an expanse of laptop-tablet devices in recent months, to which HP adds its latest hand, the Split x2, to the ever-expanding stack. A stack that,

Decent keyboard and trackpad, ample battery life, screen viewing angles are good, sturdy build quality, fair price to power balance, SSD is swift, dual headphone jack

Massive as a tablet, top-heavy as a laptop, not comfortable for lap use, heavy in either configuration, screen should be higher resolution, fiddly tablet reconnection process, 13.3-inch tablet makes little sense, last-gen Intel

The HP Split x2 hasn’t split our verdict on where this product sits. Literally: it should sit on a desk. And that defies what the product is supposed to be about. For all its efforts at being a two-in-one device - well, physically at least, it succeeds...

HP Split X2 review

 

This good value detachable tablet hybrid has great battery life and powerful laptop components, but its screen's poor contrast holds it back

The HP Split X2 is a great improvement on the detachable Windows 8 hybrid formula, and it’s a good choice if you want a tablet that you can use as a laptop. If you'd rather have a laptop you can carry around, you can save a lot of money by buying the...

HP Split 13 X2

 

The HP Split x2 marries a giant-sized 13.3in tablet with a chunky keyboard dock and a low-end Haswell CPU. By far its most impressive asset, however, is its price: it's only £699.

Despite ample processing power and a reasonable price, the Split X2 is overweight and lacking in refinement

HP Split 13 x2

 

Laptop/tablet ‘convertible' or ‘hybrid' devices are nothing new. ASUS pioneered the concept with its Android-based Transformer Pad, but HP has also had experience in the form factor over the last couple of years. The Split 13 x2 is the company's latest...

HP Split X2

 

on paper, a brilliant design idea with good battery life. superb build quality and excellent value for money

in reality, far too heavy, the balance is totally wrong as in laptop mode , it is weighted to the rear and falls back. performance is not too good for a core i3 1.4 gig and in reality, in tablet mode, 13 inches is only really practical for niche rolls,...
