Summary: Broadwell, the second. Following the Yoga 3, HP's Envy x2 is one of the first devices on the market that is based on Intel's new Broadwell technology. HP has created a convertible with multimedia mannerisms, not least due to the installed Beats Audio speakers.

Cons: Dock's stability, Stuttering touchpad, Webcam, Adversely positioned on/off button, A firmer mount for mobile keyboard use and a stronger battery.
Conclusion: No, it's not cheap but it's one heck of a portable Windows 8 transformer style tablet. The materials and build quality are the best we've seen so far in an Intel Atom Windows 8 ultraportable, and when docked it's the only transformer that looks and feels like a laptop rather than a tablet with a...
Pros: Works well both as a tablet and a laptop. Lovely materials and quality construction, good keyboard, sharp IPS display, long battery life and silent.

Cons: Below average screen quality and resolution, Difficult for consumer testers to convert from tablet to laptop
Summary: Retailing at RM 2,599 (with a 1 year warranty) – t’s hard to even consider this device. The Audio isn’t stellar, and I’ve heard better audio from sub RM 2k devices like say the Asus Vivobook. I’ve had better tablet experience with other hybrids too, like say the Acer Iconia Tab W510.
Excerpt: HP has appropriately named its latest tablet as the ENVY x2 will have friends and family twice as jealous of this tablet as any other. This is one sexy tablet with the beautiful aluminium case borrowing from Apple’s school of design to deliver a solid yet attractive package.
Pros: Designer good-looks very slim in tablet mode big screen.
Cons: Low performance for the price low-res screen no USB ports on tablet.
HP Envy X2 – decent specs, great design and Windows 8 in a Ultrabook hybrid format
20 May 2013
Conclusion: The HP Envy X2 is already on sale, but its price might benefit from being a little lower – you can get the whole device (tablet + dock) for $850, which is quite a lot to ask when there are cheaper alternatives around – many people don’t really need the dock or prefer to buy it later.
Conclusion: Current technology just doesn’t allow for a powerful Windows PC at an affordable price in a slim chassis. What separates today’s best and worst hybrid PCs is the way they manage their inevitable flaws and compensate for them in other areas. The Envy x2 is the best balancing act we’ve seen thus far.
Pros: Attractive design, Thin and light, Great keyboard dock, Average battery life as tablet; excellent life with dock, Good value
