HP SlateBook x2 review
3 February 2014
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: HP takes on ASUS with a dockable Android tablet
19 September 2013
Summary: This probably goes without saying, but the HP SlateBook x2 is only a smart buy if you intend to make good use out of the keyboard. It's important to remember that the dock isn't a fun extra here: it comes in the box, and it defines the way you're supposed to use the product. If you do expect to spend lots of time on email and note-taking, this is the most comfortable keyboard dock on any Android tablet, and it helps improve the battery life too.
Pros: Fast, stable performance, Tablet is lightweight, Comfortable typing experience, Price includes the keyboard dock
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.

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.
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.
Summary: For $479, the HP SlateBook x2 delivers a tablet and mini laptop in one device for a fairly aggressive price, making it a particularly intriguing choice for students. The keyboard is comfortable to use, and it's easy to switch from slate to clamshell mode. Plus, Nvidia's Tegra 4 processor provides plenty of pep for work and play. Speaking of work, the bundled File Manager and Kingsoft Office apps get the job done (cloud-saving bug notwithstanding).
Pros: Easy to switch from laptop to tablet mode, Comfortable keyboard, Fast Tegra 4 processor, microSD and SD Card slots, Kingsoft Office included
Cons: Below-average battery life, Display is relatively dim, Selecting text with touchpad a challenge, Awkward back-mounted power and volume buttons
