Reviews for the HP Envy X2-j001ng

77% HP Envy x2-j001ng Convertible Review | Notebookcheck
Broadwell, the second. Following the Yoga 3, HP's Envy x2 is one of the first devices on the market that is based on Intel's new Broadwell technology. HP has created a convertible with multimedia mannerisms, not least due to the installed Beats Audio speakers. Our test will uncover other talents of the Envy x2.

We're not completely taken by the HP Envy X2. It sometimes felt like a chore to use, mainly because of the layout of its keyboard and touchpad, and also because of the performance of its touchpad. For notebook usage while resting it on a desk, we'd use a different keyboard and a dedicated mouse rather then the fold-up, detachable one.

Though HP's bread and butter is their midrange and low end hardware, it's great to see them produce a few higher end gems like the Spectre 13, HP Omen 15 and the 2014 Envy x2 detachable tablets. These machines are well made with attractive and sturdy metal casings, modern designs and good displays.

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 HD Graphics 5300: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in Core M processors from the Broadwell Y-series (4.5 W TDP).  Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
5Y70:

Broadwell-based ULV dual-core processor for tablets and 2-in-1 notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5300 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.

1.796 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
