86% Review HP Envy x2 11-g000eg Tablet | Notebookcheck
Runtime miracle. HP launches a slim Windows 8 tablet on the market, which mutates to a full-blown laptop via the keyboard dock, dubbed Envy x2 11. An energy-efficient Atom SoC from Intel not only ensures exceptional battery runtimes, but also modest computing power.

It might look the goods, but sadly the ENVY x2 is all talk and no walk. That won’t stop those who value good looks over all else from shelling out for such a pretty product, but for those who demand value for money there are much, much better options.

Tablet-like laptop
Source: Inside HW English
Hewlett-Packard managed to make a rather solid and competitive hybrid device, which functions almost as good as laptop as it does as a tablet, whit the aforementioned limits in performances. There are a few more slight flaws, such as the lack of USB 3.0 port or keyboard backlighting, somewhat lower screen resolution and none of them can spoil its positive impression.

80% HP Envy x2 Review
Source: Digital Trends English
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. The Envy x2 is the best balancing act we’ve seen thus far. Unlike most competitors, this device is truly useful as a laptop.

But, at $950, the Envy x2 is simply too expensive to get away with it. For the same price you can buy the much more powerful ASUS Vivobook X202E touchscreen laptop and a Google Nexus 7 tablet for those times when you want one. Alternatively, you could wait for Microsoft’s 10.6in, Full HD, Core i5-powered Surface Windows Pro, which is expected to be priced similarly.

80% HP Envy x2 review: a Windows 8 tablet or laptop? It's both!
Source: PC Advisor English
We love the X2's design, but it's rather expensive given the modest performance on offer. Even so, it can still handle most basic computing tasks perfectly well, and its ingenious convertible design and impressive battery life mean that it will continue to earn its keep long after most laptops have run flat.

In the end, though, we see so much potential in the Envy x2 we're willing to overlook some of its awkwardness. It's the type of device that is sure to improve over time, and it's showing the way to the undeniable future of ultralight laptops.

HP Envy X2 Review
Source: Ubergizmo English
I personally use a keyboard connected to my iPad at all times as I enjoy the tablet, but also enjoy the feel of a real keyboard at the same time. The HP Envy X2 is geared to someone like me who likes to go back and forth between a laptop setting to a tablet setting at any time. I found if you think of the HP Envy X2 as the best of both worlds, that it’s done very well and certainly stands out in my opinion due to its great battery life and display.

Source: Computer Active English
The HP Envy X2 is a potentially great Windows 8 laptop-tablet hybrid ruined by its unusuably slow Atom processor. It's hard to justify spending £800 on the Envy X2 when the substantially cheaper Microsoft Surface, which admittedly has quirky design problems of its own, feels so much faster and more responsive despite having a theoretically slower ARM processor. In other words the Envy X2 is just poor value.

Series:

The HP Envy x2, the PC giant’s beautifully built Windows 8 hybrid laptop is leading the 2013's trend to detachable screens, which can also be used as tablets on the go. This laptop uses Windows 8 32-bit to give user the full windows experience rather than the hobbled Windows RT that was found in other tablet.

Key advantages of HP's Envy x2 are its ability to run any x86 PC program without problem, the very attractive design and light weight of only 700g. Thanks to the IPS screen and very good battery life, the HP Envy x2 is perfect for daily use such as web browsing, email, or light apps. Thanks to a fast SSD and Intel’s new Clover Trail architecture, even HD video playback and non 3D-gaming apps run without lag.

The Atom chip’s meager performance is the deal-breaker for many people who are looking for a primary mobile device, as the HP envy x2 can’t run demanding apps. At a premium price tag of almost 900 Euro, there are many alternative options out there from mid-range laptop to tablet with Intel’s low voltage core-i5 processor, which can get the job done. However, if you are dead-set on a detachable screen type laptop and money is not a big concern, this might be the right choice for you.

PowerVR SGX545:

Integrated GPU in a number of Intel Atom Clover Trail processors.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


Z2760: Soc with integrated dual core Atom processor clocked at up to 1.8 GHz (only Turbo?), a PowerVR SGX 545 based GPU clocked at 533 MHz and a dual channel LPDDR2-800 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
