Overview

The new HP ENVY x2 PC gives you the power of two devices in one. A Windows 8 notebook with a bright, vivid HD Touch display and a tablet that slides off for those times when you want to carry even less.

The screen and keyboard panels both contain batteries, it’s much more impressive. With the flick of a switch at the top of the keyboard, you can simply detach the screen and use it on its own as a tablet.

hpenvyNo need to tie yourself down to one place. With its sleek and thin appearance (with an aluminum finish), the HP ENVY x2 is designed to suit your style and go wherever you do. And because it’s super light, you can take it everywhere without thinking twice. It only weighs 1.4Kg and measures 19mm thick. The tab is 10mm-thick, 1.6-pound slate that contains a full Windows 8 (not RT) installation.

The screen is with a 1366×768 resolution and an IPS panel that produces an extremely bright and colourful image – so bright, that according PC advisor, they were able to conduct most of their tests with the brightness set to just 50 percent.

Pros

  1. Well-designed Windows tablet
  2. Good audio
  3. Really nice screen
  4. Keyboard and touchpad both work well.
  5. The battery life is also a plus. With the bonus-battery-equipped keyboard attached, the Envy x2 provides 8.5 hours of run time.

Cons

  1. Apps load slowly and run even slower, and graphics capabilities are nonexistent.
  2. Price, compared to its features is outrageous
  3. The Envy x2 is an Atom-based tablet, designed to keep battery life high and heat dissipation low. But, that comes at the cost of performance.
  4. Without the keyboard, battery life drops to just 4.5 hours, which is considerably worse than some Core i5 laptops.

The HP Envy x2 can be found in major electronic stores in Nigeria. Prices start from around 159,000 Naira, depending on the configuration and your location.
