The notebook that doubles as a tablet. The new HP ENVY x2 PC gives you the power of two devices in one. Some occasions call for the power of a laptop. And some for the freedom of a tablet.

Ultrathin with a sleek aluminum finish, it's designed to go wherever you go. And since it's super light, you can take it everywhere without thinking twice. With Beats A

2. I need a product good with Office - Word and Excel and this does well on that front
3. As a tablet it is very light and even though it is the atom processor it works very well for me since i really don't play games.
In all very happy. Bought it for $ 749 in the US so got a very good deal.
What I like:
- the form factor: the detaching screen is excellent and feels very robust, but easy to use. The weight is light, and the tablet feels very comfortable in the hand. On the lap it tends to tip forward a little, but nothing too annoying
- the keyboard - I find it good to type on (but would have liked it backlit). The multi-touchpad works very well too.
- the screen - I find it bright and clear, and the touch works really well
- Windows 8 - I like it a lot. It combines ease of use for touch mode, with a full desktop PC facility too. I don't like Xbox Music much, it seems way to awkward and unreliable to use at the moment.
- the 2 SD card slots. I keep the screen slot loaded with a 64GB micro SD and have all my photos and documents on it, synced via SkyDrive
- All the applications that I have loaded (Apps or PC programs) work well. The exception is Google Earth that will not run in DirectX mode, but does run OK in OpenGL mode.
- Battery life - seems very reasonable
What could be better:
- A faster processor. Actually this doesn't really affect me, but I can see it churning if I try to edit a video. Everything I use is smooth, including the BBC iPlayer and Youtube.
- Solving a small issue with the multi-touch pad which stops understanding gestures after coming out of sleep. Not every time, but often. It is easily solved by detaching and re-attaching the keyboard, but it is annoying.
- A lower price. It is worth shopping around or waiting a while for the premium price to drop perhaps.
Summary: A good quality, versatile tablet / PC, which works very smoothly with Windows 8.
The dual core atom and built-in SSD keeps everything running smoothly while generating very little heat in normal use. The screen is not quite up there with the best apple has to offer, but it's bright enough and pleasant to use. The keyboard is also very good as is the touchpad, although I do miss not having backlighting. Battery life is excellent, realistically lasting a whole day with capacity to spare. Build quality is also excellent, and up there with the best I've seen. The tablet itself is very light, and I haven't noticed any appreciable difference in real-word use when holding it for extended periods between the Envy and my iPad 3.
The whole system has been very stable in use so far, with no system crashes or other issues. Windows 8 is also very usable, although no doubt it will get even better with the v8.1 update later in the year. I would bet that most people who complain about Windows 8 have either never used it on a touch-enabled device, which is what it was built for, or haven't actually taken a few minutes to learn the small number of gestures which are required to navigate the interface.
On the software side, the Windows store is understandably limited, but I'm sure that will improve over time. The various bundled Metro apps (Mail, People, News, etc.) all work reasonably well, and legacy Windows apps run fine in desktop mode. Unfortunately, Chrome on Windows 8 still has some issues with touch navigation, so I had to ditch it in favour of IE. Surprisingly, I haven't found myself missing Chrome.Read more ›
- Windows 8 is absolutely great with a touchscreen/tablet. With swift touch motions, it just feels so nice to use. The shortcuts and features are also easy to learn.
- The keyboard is good.
- The graphics are relatively good.
- It's quite fast for every day activities (e.g. browsing)
- Small and robust. Good for travel.
- Grouding/earthing problems. This seems to be a design/manufacturing flaw. If you try to use the touchscreen while not touching the sides, it will be unresponsive. This is an issue if you want to use the tablet on a surface instead of in your hands or on your lap. It's also an issue if the screen is docked and you want to use the touchscreen.
- Annoying touchpad. It has a tendency to be quite jumpy and I personally don't like the texture.
- Most of the space is already taken up by default. When I bought it, I had less than 30 GB of space left.
The first two issues drastically reduced the usability of the device for me even though I liked pretty much everything else so I returned it.
