HP SlateBook x2
4 October 2014
Summary: HP has crafted itself a brilliant tablet that‘s unfortunately been bogged down by the keyboard attachment that strives to be an addition, rather than a hindrance. As a tablet, the fast and nippy HP SlateBook x2 is a decent bit of kit that we would love to see sold standalone - but it could be slightly cheaper. Coupled with the keyboard segment though - and the iPad-rivalling £379 pricetag - you might expect a better keyboard.
With a $480 asking price, the HP SlateBook x2 does little to justify the expense
19 November 2013
Summary: Though it boasts plenty of ports and a physical keyboard, the SlateBooks x2's offerings don't quite match its $480 price.
Pros: The HP SlateBook x2 tablet includes a physical keyboard hub, dual batteries, full USB and HDMI ports, and two storage expansion slots.
Cons: The screen has a constant yellowish tint, apps take their time to load, the keyboard is cramped, and the tablet's ridges are distracting when you attempt to hold it in one hand. The price feels high given what you get overall, and there's no GPS hardware.
Summary: The HP SlateBook x2 is a fast hybrid device and performed quite well in most of the benchmark tests. Barring the cramped keyboard, reflective screen and the below average audio experience we did not find anything missing in the device. Lack of 3G may be an issue for some. Sure the rear camera is a disappointment, but that should never be a consideration while buying a hybrid device.
HP SlateBook x2 Review: A Potentially Good Device With One Unfixable Flaw
11 September 2013
Summary: Conclusions are always the most difficult part of a review, because oftentimes people jump straight to the bottom to form an opinion of the device (perhaps stopping to look at the benchmarks along the way). As a result, it's incredibly important to form a conclusion that's not only fair and just to the device itself, but also provides all the important details that were just discussed throughout the review.
Excerpt: Until about a year ago, most Android devices were equipped with Nvidia's Tegra SoC. Then Qualcomm appeared to take over with various versions of its Snapdragon chips. Today we're taking a closer look at the 10-inch HP SlateBook x2, which carries the latest chip from Nvidia, the Tegra 4. We already analyzed the performance of this very powerful chip in an earlier article, and today we'll take a closer look at a complete product using the new SoC.
HP SlateBook x2: Two Devices in One, Master of None

Excerpt: As great as technology is, it doesn’t do any favors for your wallet or your back when you have to schlep all your gadgets around. So, if you had the opportunity to reduce the number of devices in your life without sacrificing any of the functions you’re used to, you’d take it, wouldn’t you? That’s the idea behind hybrid PCs — or convertibles, as they’re sometimes called. They’re laptops that flip, twist, detach or slide to also become tablets.
Summary: For Rs. 39,990 you have a lot of high-end tablets at your disposal. Sure, the highlight of the HP Slatebook X2 is the Tegra 4 chipset powering it and it is a beast especially if you are one who would like to play games on the device. We'd recommend you stick to the tried and tested iPad 4th gen, Samsung Galaxy Note 800 and more available in the market if you want a good overall performing tablet.
Pros: Extremely well-built, Wide viewing angles, Stock Android UI, Keyboard dock has its own battery and is very well-built
Excerpt: We are currently testing the HP SlateBook x2, the first device with the Nvidia Tegra 4 chip we've been able to lay our hands on. The full review will follow shortly, but we wanted to share the benchmark results already. Let's see how the Tegra 4 SoC holds up in practice.
