Summary: let me just go ahead and say that i don't usually write any reviews, but this product is so disappointing that I had to warn other costumers. If I could give this computer less than 1 star i would. it is by far the worst laptop iv'e ever owned. and i'd expect more from a 650$ computer. Pros long battery life cons 1. SOUND: weaker than the simples phone speaker. with or without earphones- very very poor 0/10 2. SPEED: extremely slow.
Summary: Constantly freezes and needs re-booting. After owning it for only 3 months the battery would not charge. Could not turn it on. I went back and forth with HP tech dept. Shipped it to their technology center TWICE! They finally gave me a new computer and now the same thing is happening. P.O.S. machine. I'm throwing it out and going to the Apple Store!
Summary: please don't waste your money on this product. I have tried multiple times to get this thing to work as it is supposed to and it just freezes all the time. The battery life is terrible! I constantly get messages saying that one of the batteries is shot and no longer works so the battery life has been cut in half. When it works, its great! BUT this is maybe 5 minutes every hour. Writing a paper is completely frustrating and using the internet is even worse!
Summary: I apologize for what is, without a doubt, a rant... but I'm still angry about this. Buying the Envy X2 was, by far, the worst technology purchase I've ever made. Overall, it's a lemon, but what frustrated me the most about this purchase is the fact that I made it because it was the only option advertised with stylus and digitizer, I happily and enthusiastically bought it, having been a heavy user of OneNote, and after good experiences using it with stylus-equipped (but...
The good: Intel Atom processor uses very little power

Summary: The good: Intel Atom processor uses very little power, which was the main reason I bought this computer (to run Windows 7-based weather program on my boat). The bad: Intel Atom processor makes this machine neither Windows in mainstream sense nor of course Apple iOS. It is buggy and prone to freezing up and crashing (SDBUS INTERNAL ERROR, over and over again). Have difficulty playing back videos longer than one hour.
Summary: since I bought this laptop, I have been having issues non stop. 2 months into purchase battery went bad, so I send it to HP who supposedly replaced it. Then another 2 months later same issue had to send it in again. The laptop from the beginning showed error messages and had poor performance. When I had to send it in the 2nd time I asked them to replace laptop, they said we don't do that we only can repair.
Summary: I've had it for a little more than a year and regret having purchased it. I find that even when powered off the battery can discharge to the point of having a zero charge, loosing time and date functions. HP took it back to repair but problem still exists. Periodically I now get a message that one of the batteries ( the one in base) needs to be replaced. A big disappointment from HP.
