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. The depth is incredibly skinny at just 8mm but HP has made it look even skinnier by tapering three of the edges.
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.
Excerpt: and you’ll immediately want to call it the MacBook Air Windows 8 Edition. I couldn’t blame you. If not for the understated HP logo on the back, you’d be perfectly justified assuming this came from Cupertino.
Pros: An incredibly well-designed Windows tablet, one of the best-looking on the market. Surprisingly good audio. Really nice screen. Keyboard and touchpad both work well.
Cons: Performance is all-around lousy. Chicklet up/down arrow keys. Heavier (and 0 more expensive) than the similar Acer, but with half the battery life.
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.
Summary: HP ENVY X2 comes as a latest addition to the slew of convertible notebooks and promises to offer something different compared other Windows 8 based devices. Available with the capacity to lure the tech freaks and advertised with best detachment mechanism, ENVY X2 does live up to the expectations but with some delusions that might affect its sales rate.
Pros: Amazing hybrid design , Long battery life , Slim and light
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
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: Das schicke HP Envy x2 im Metall-Look ist zwar kein Leichtgewicht, bietet mit 11,6 Zoll aber viel Komfort, sowohl beim Bildschirm als auch bei der Tastatur. Wichtig: Vor dem Kauf sollten Sie prüfen, ob die Anschlüsse Ihren Anforderungen genügen.
Pros: gute Tastatur mit integriertem Akku, Steckplätze für MicroSD- und SD-Karte
Cons: kein USB-Anschluss am Tablet, mäßiges Display
