HP Envy x2: The splittable Atom laptop

 

With the Envy x2 you get full Windows 8 and excellent battery life in a little 11-inch laptop-tablet hybrid, but be ready to accept limitations.

The ; 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 Tablet

 

The aluminum finish and light weight of the Windows 8-powered Envy X2 makes it easy to take this tablet wherever you go. You can also share files and photos with just a tap using the device's built-in NFC (Near-Field Communication) to other compatible...

HP Envy x2

 

A Windows tablet with more than 20 hours of battery life? This is the HP Envy x2 running a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835.

HP Envy x2 13 review

 

HP spruces up its Enxy x2 with Core M and a new design, but can it rival the Surface Pro 3?

After a few days with the Envy x2, we kept returning to one question: what’s it actually good at? It’s too big and unwieldy to make for a tablet we’d want to use with any regularity, and the clip-on keyboard is borderline impossible to use on your lap...

HP ENVY X2 Review

 

HP ENVY X2 Review gives glimpse about the latest tablet pc cum laptop. This device does include some new features.

• Amazing hybrid design ; • Long battery life ; • Slim and light

• Oversized tablet ; • Low HDD ; • Low resolution display ; • Slow processor ; • Expensive

At INR 48999, ENVY X2 does seem to look quite expensive for being an Atom based computing device. In this cost and in fact at even more less, there are other options also available for purchase. Is it necessary to own a laptop with tablet? Instead, you...

"Not a flaw, a feature!"

 

Like buying a Porsche without seats (only 25 gigs of storage after you take the full, though superfluous, version of Windows 8 into account) and a 135 hp engine (Intel Atom processor,) the Envy X2 looks awesome on the outside but left me questioning...

-Looks pretty

Severely limited storage, processing power, and apps left me wondering why they'd even bother. Years behind as a tablet, useless as an ultrabook, too expensive for a netbook. Get an old iPad and a Chromebook instead. Much more productive.

This is my best pc.

 

I have had mine since December as well and I must say that I have no disappointments at all. The speed of Win8 on this combo unit is excellent, the battery life is amazing and the overall feel is spectacular. The only thing is that I wish there was a...

Battery Build quality Speed Portability Feels like dual OS (equivalent of OSX and IOS but for windows)

Lack of accessories... No smart cover, in tablet mode feels a little naked.

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. I looked through the items...

-Design is eye catching -Sturdy Hinge -Excellent Battery life so far -smart charging (it chrages the tablet first, then charges the keyboard dock. -Smaller games run well(I have some emulators that have been fun on the go)

-Atom processor is no i-series and it shows when multi-tasking -wish the tablet itself had more ports on it (sd slots are on keyboard) -a little pricey considering the processing power -would appreciate including the stylus for that price

"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. I was excited to...

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

- lack of tablet apps. MS Store will improve with time?
