Reviews for the HP Envy x2 11-g001el

60% HP Envy X2 review
Source: T3 English
There are a lot of positives to draw from the HP Envy X2 in terms of battery life, but unfortunately we're no closer to finding the perfect hybrid Windows tablet. The build and bulk we can live with, but the high price, low power and limited usability mean that we couldn't consider the Envy X2 to be anything more than a companion to our existing machines.

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.


11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

0.68 kg:

This weight is typical for small tablets.
