Summary: At an MRP of Rs 59,990, the HP Envy x2 feels quite expensive for an Atom-based notebook. Even a Core i3 would have been welcome at this point. The only reason one may pick this over the similarly priced Windows RT tablets is that you can still use legacy x86 apps. It does have a very good battery life and plays 1080p video like a champ, but if that’s all you’re looking for, then you’re better off with an iPad or any Android tablet and a keyboard dock.
Summary: 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 tablet together. However, when used as a notebook, the system's mediocre performance, uncomfortable keyboard and slippery touchpad make it feel more like an inexpensive netbook than an $849 product.
Pros: Sharp colorful screen, Attractive lightweight design, Long battery life with dock
Cons: Stiff uncomfortable typing experience, Netbook-level performance, Mediocre battery life without dock
The Envy X2 is a two-in-one product: it can be used as a tablet or as a notebook thanks to the supplied dock

Summary: HP's Envy X2 hybrid is decent if you are looking for a Windows 8 tablet that can also be used for long typing sessions. However, we experienced sluggish performance, a screen that flickered, and a touchpad that sometimes refused to work properly. These issues diminished our overall view of this product.
Pros: Can be used as a tablet or as a notebook, Runs Windows 8, Battery life can be extended through the keyboard dock
Cons: Performance was sometimes very sluggish, Touchpad didn't always work properly, Screen flickering issue, Slow storage
Excerpt: Marrying the usability and ease of a tablet with the power and productivity of a laptop has proved hard for the world's tech giants. Even Microsoft Surface hasn't got the mix right, let alone the Sony VAIO Duo 13 , Asus VivoBook or Samsung ATIV Pro . The main complaints have been bulky build from the full-blooded components, poor keyboard attachments and in the case of tablets such as Microsoft Surface RT , hobbled versions of Windows.
Pros: Great battery life, Slim build
Cons: Basic power, USB on keyboard dock only, Cramped keys
Summary: The HP Envy x2 is a touchscreen tablet for navigating Windows 8, paired with a keyboard dock for getting on with work. Sadly though, it delivers very disappointing performance that isn't at all justified by its high price.
Pros: Detachable keyboard dock, Slim and attractive design, Comfortable keyboard
Cons: Extremely unimpressive performance, Needlessly expensive, Low resolution screen, Only 64GB of storage
Summary: Hvor går grensen mellom et nettbrett og en bærbar PC? Det er et vanskelig spørsmål, men sikkert er det at det finnes et hull midt mellom de to kategoriene, som HP Envy x 2 dessverre har falt ned i.
Pros: Fin utførelse i børstet aluminium
Cons: Skjermen, Både tastatur og hengsler gir etter og knaker, Mangler leser for minnekort, For dyr
