Better, thanks to Haswell. HP implanted a new heart in their EliteBooks: Instead of Ivy Bridge processors, now the convertibles are outfitted with Haswell CPUs. This was a worthwhile upgrade, as the renovated devices now offer a longer battery life -- and somewhat stronger performance.
70% Review: HP Elitebook Revolve 810 G2 Tablet
Source: Gadgetguy English
While HP might not have been present in the tablet space for all that long — paging the Touchpad, anyone? — recent efforts by the company show it returning to form. Indeed, it’s doing it again in the Revolve, which not only revives an older tablet style, but also makes it durable and useful for longer distance, which will suit business users getting ready to travel.

Overall, this is a good unit that performs both notebook and tablet tasks without much compromise. It’s comfortable to use as a notebook if you don’t mind the 11.6in form factor, and it’s equally comfortable to use as a tablet if you don’t mind the overall weight being significantly more than a stand-alone tablet. You get good performance and battery life, decent connectivity, and the port expansion option is useful for office docking.

Review + videos: 3 convertible Windows laptops try to be all devices to all people
Source: English
The HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G2 is a portable powerhouse that mixes excellent battery life with impressive performance. I found that it worked better as a laptop or presentation system than a tablet or fold-flat system; in addition, at more than a half-pound overweight, it's tedious to hold as a tablet. And even the entry-level models are surprisingly expensive compared to the competition. Frankly, I was wowed by the Dell XPS 11's ultra-high-resolution screen, its sleek profile and low weight. Easily the best of the bunch at being a tablet, the XPS 11's soft skin is inviting to the touch. Finally, despite having the most complicated hinge design of the three convertibles, the Sony Vaio Fit 11A | Flip PC offered the least number of movement configurations of the three laptops. As a tablet, I found it awkward to hold vertically, while as a laptop, the screen wobbled noticeably and the volume control is hidden behind the display. The Flip does, however, have a nice 5-degree tilt when it's set up on a desk as a tablet.

The HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G2 one of many hybrid laptops out there in the market today. It separates itself with its swivel-hinge that turns the screen to change into tablet mode.

One thing for sure is that you'll be getting a lot of power in this offering by HP. With options of 4th-generation i3, i5 and i7 and at least 4 GB of RAM (upgradeable to 12 GB), running most applications and multitasking is not a problem. It also comes with an SSD up to 256 GB, ensuring extremely fast boot up and software startup. The Intel HD 4400 graphics will grant you excellent media playback and you can play some of the less resource hungry games.

The 11.6-inch Gorilla Glass 2 screen has a 1366 x 768 resolution, which is one of its main drawbacks. Most laptops at this price comes with 1080p FullHD resolution. The keyboard is spill-resistant and has an optional backlight. It's been tested by HP for dust, shock, temperature and water resistance as well.

The price is very steep, so not having 1080p resolution is a let-down. The battery life is somewhat below average. This is not exactly the best value for your money but you are guaranteed to get performance.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
