But at £800, the Envy x2 is simply too expensive to get away with it. For £72 more you can buy the much more powerful Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 and an iPad – or, you could wait for Microsoft’s 10.6in, Full HD, Core i5-powered Surface Pro, which is expected to be priced similarly. HP’s offering aims commendably high in terms of build quality – and in itself it makes a very agreeable platform for all-day lightweight computing – but when you weigh up your options, its capabilities are clearly far too limited to justify the price.

WIRED An incredibly well-designed Windows tablet, one of the best-looking on the market. Surprisingly good audio. Really nice screen. Keyboard and touchpad both work well. TIRED Performance is all-around lousy. Chicklet up/down arrow keys. Heavier (and $100 more expensive) than the similar Acer, but with half the battery life.

The HP Envy x2 is a product that we were excited about when it was first announced. But that excitement has largely evaporated thanks to the product's price point. See, the HP Envy x2 isn't a bad product by any means, it's just badly positioned on the price ladder. But such positives can't counter the near-£800 price and limited performance from the Atom processor. That's the long and short of it: the HP Envy x2 is a smart little hybrid, but there are cheaper and more powerful competitors out there and that's what holds this model back.

HP Envy X2 Windows 8 hybrid tablet/notebook review
Source: Liliputing English
If you ignore the $850 price tag, the HP Envy X2 makes sense as a sort of cross between a Windows RT tablet and an ultrabook. It’s a thin and light laptop that also functions as a tablet with long battery life. But it’s hard to ignore that price tag. Basically if you plan to use the computer as a notebook, you’re paying 3 times the price of a netbook to get netbook-style performance.

At an MRP of Rs 59,990, the HP Envy x2 feels quite expensive for an Atom-based notebook. Even a Core i3 would have been welcome at this point. The only reason one may pick this over the similarly priced Windows RT tablets is that you can still use legacy x86 apps. It does have a very good battery life and plays 1080p video like a champ, but if that’s all you’re looking for, then you’re better off with an iPad or any Android tablet and a keyboard dock.

The HP Envy X2 (11-g012nr) is faster than the Acer Iconia W510, has better all-aluminum construction, a more comfortable keyboard and mouse, and a sleeker design. But while the Envy X2 does offer enough battery life to carry you through the workday and then some, it still falls a few hours short of the similarly equipped Acer W510 while being priced $100 more.

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.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.

1.4 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
