Review HP SlateBook x2 10-h010nr Tablet


Handy detachable. The 10.1-inch SlateBook x2 joins the 11.6-inch Envy x2 and 13.3-inch Split x2 as one of HP's key products in the detachable notebook category. It is also the least expensive model of the x2 series at a starting price of $480 and is...

Powerful hardware and responsive software; Bright IPS glass display; Dense 1920 x 1200 resolution; Good build quality; HDMI 1.4, SD and microSD; Extra-wide touchpad; Dual batteries; Lightweight; Low starting price

No local USB port on tablet; Only one USB port available; Locking mechanism could have been more firm; MicroSD slot is hidden when attached to keyboard dock; All-around plastic; Poor keyboard travel and feedback; No keyboard backlight and small arrow...

Excellent performance and well-made hardware for a mainstream device. The pre-installed HP software are minimal and can actually be useful instead of simple bloatware.

HP SlateBook x2 review: HP takes on ASUS with a dockable Android tablet


Until now, ASUS hasn't had much competition in dockable Android tablets. Sure, we've seen the odd model from Lenovo and other companies, but for the most

Fast, stable performance ; Tablet is lightweight ; Comfortable typing experience ; Price includes the keyboard dock

Awkwardly placed buttons ; Mediocre battery life ; Finicky touchpad ; Dim screen

This dockable Android tablet offers a comfortable keyboard dock and fast performance for a reasonable price. Just beware of the trade-offs before taking the plunge.

Review: HP overreaches and underdelivers with the SlateBook x2


It's a tablet, it's a laptop, it's a disappointment any way you use it.

Lots of ports ; Small and portable

Apps crash randomly ; Case is easy to scratch

HP would have been better off just making either a laptop or a tablet; as a hybrid of the two, the SlateBook x2 offers the worst of both worlds without most of the benefits. As a tablet it doesn’t have enough going for it to stand as a viable choice...

HP SlateBook x2


The HP SlateBook x2 is a "woulda, coulda, shoulda" Android tablet that doesn't quite justify its $480 price tag.

The HP SlateBook x2 tablet includes a physical keyboard hub, dual batteries, full USB and HDMI ports, and two storage expansion slots.

The screen has a constant yellowish tint, apps take their time to load, the keyboard is cramped, and the tablet's ridges are distracting when you attempt to hold it in one hand. The price feels high given what you get overall, and there's no GPS hardware.

Though it boasts plenty of ports and a physical keyboard, the SlateBooks x2's offerings don't quite match its $480 price.

HP SlateBook x2


HP makes a strong attempt at a proper convertible with the SlateBook x2, a screaming-fast, Tegra 4-powered Android tablet, but it's not without flaws.

Very fast quad-core processor. Sharp screen resolution. Comfy keyboard. Useful convertible design. Two memory card slots

Dim display. Short battery life. Not exceptionally lightweight. Buggy

Can't decide between a lightweight tablet and a notebook computer? HP attempts to give you both with the SlateBook x2 ($479.99 direct), an Android-powered convertible tablet with an exceptionally comfy keyboard given its small size and weight....

HP SlateBook x2


The HP SlateBook x2 is a capable Tegra 4-powered tablet and mini laptop in one device for an affordable price, but it involves some trade-offs.

Easy to switch from laptop to tablet mode; Comfortable keyboard; Fast Tegra 4 processor; microSD and SD Card slots; Kingsoft Office included

Below-average battery life; Display is relatively dim; Selecting text with touchpad a challenge; Awkward back-mounted power and volume buttons

For $479, the HP SlateBook x2 delivers a tablet and mini laptop in one device for a fairly aggressive price, making it a particularly intriguing choice for students. The keyboard is comfortable to use, and it's easy to switch from slate to clamshell...

The Slatebook X2 is a solid workhorse, as long as you're prepared to make some compromises

HP SlateBook x2 Review


The 2-in-1 generation has got us in touch with a lot of devices and the HP Slate family of products is just another addition to this ever-increasing category. There are three products in the Slate family, namely the Windows 8-sporting Slate x2 and ENVY...

There is a 720p front facing HD camera but the rear has a mere 2MP camera. On the audio front, it boasts of DTS+ sound. The 10.1-inch screen has a resolution of 1920x1200 and is LED backlit with a pixel density of 224 ppi. Although the finish is...

HP Slatebook x2


HP's Android tablet/laptop mash-up is no match for the Transformer Pad.

Plenty of connectivity ; Solid, robust design ; Keyboard with decent travel

Average battery life ; Dim screen ; Slightly cramped keyboard

What’s more of a concern is the screen is very dim even at maximum brightness level. It’s perfectly suitable for watching video and gaming indoors, but the Slatebook x2 is hard to use outdoors and the screen lacks the punch and verve we're used to...

HP Slatebook x2 review


HP’s rival to the Asus Transformer should be a strong contender, with a blazing fast processor and fully detachable keyboard dock. But Sophie Curtis thinks it is suffering from an identity crisis.
