HP Envy x2 review

theverge.com
7 January 2014
  • Summary: The more Windows 8 devices I review, the more refined my idea of a perfect Windows PC becomes. A convertible device (a tablet and dock) makes the most sense for me, but I need full-blown Windows 8, not Windows RT and its lack of app support. I’ve found that 13 inches is too big , and 10 is too small — if you’re looking for the “one device to rule them all,” 11.6 inches is the only useful size. That's why I was looking forward to spending time with the HP Envy x2.
  • Pros: Good-looking design, Feels at home as both a tablet and laptop, Good keyboard and trackpad
  • Cons: Atom chip isn't up to any intensive tasks, Display is weak for a tablet, A few small features missing, like USB 3.0 and backlit keys

HP Envy x2

MobileTechReview.com
10 October 2013
  • 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 keyboard accessory.
  • 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: The Intel Atom CPU isn't very fast and this is best used a second portable machine.

HP Envy x2 Review

Digitaltrends
2 May 2013
  • 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.
  • Pros: Attractive design, Thin and light, Great keyboard dock, Average battery life as tablet; excellent life with dock, Good value
  • Cons: Low display resolution, Poor performance

HP Envy X2 (11-g012nr)

PC Magazine
12 April 2013
  • Conclusion: The HP Envy X2 (11-g012nr) is a slick-looking detachable tablet laptop with all-day battery life, but some may balk at price and the limitations of an Atom processor.
  • Pros: Sleek-looking, comfortable design. Portability and productivity in one device. Windows 8. All-day battery life.
  • Cons: Atom processor. Pricey for an underpowered device.

  • Conclusion: As much as we like the Envy x2's screen, battery life, and premium aesthetics, the power user in us has a hard time considering spending ultrabook-like money on a device that performs more like a netbook. The Envy x2 is certainly capable of office productivity, Web browsing, and media playback without getting bogged down.
  • Pros: Excellent battery life, Stylish form and finish, No internal fan, High-resolution cameras
  • Cons: Only 2GB of RAM and cramped SSD, Weak performance compared to comparably priced ultrabooks, No USB 3.0 ports

HP Envy x2 review: a tablet / laptop hybrid that fails to deliver the complete package

Engadget
14 January 2013
  • Summary: Laptop / tablet hybrids have their work cut out for them: providing a fluid experience as both a portable slate and a productivity-minded laptop -- let alone with an Atom processor doing the grunt work -- is a tall order. Making the design comfortable and easily convertible isn't exactly a simple task for PC makers, either. HP did hit some high notes with the Envy x2, especially with the attractive and lightweight design.
  • Pros: Slick, lightweight design, Good battery life (in laptop mode), Decent IPS display
  • Cons: Uncomfortable keyboard, Netbook-grade performance

HP ENVY x2

  • Excerpt: The HP Envy x2 tablet is referred to as a hybrid PC because of the fact that it can be easily converted from a tablet to a notebook in just a few seconds. It has “x2” in its name because according to HP, it’s two products rolled up into one. That’s not crazy talk. It actually can be used as two different products, depending on how you set it up. First, you can use it as a regular Windows 8 tablet computer.

  • Excerpt: At first glance, the Envy x2 looks like a compact, 11-inch ultrabook – one with more than a passing resemblance to Apple’s MacBook Air . It’s a little bigger and larger than the MacBook Air, as it weighs 1.4Kg and measures 19mm thick.
