Is it a laptop or a tablet? The HP Envy X2 11-G030EA is actually both. It is a tablet that comes with a detachable keyboard and it costs £800 at PC World which makes it a tad more expensive than say the £510 Acer Iconia W510, the £499 Asus Vivotab ME400C or the £410 Android-based Asus Transformer Prime TF201.
For that outlay, you get a device powered by an Intel Atom Z2760 processor which is clocked at 1.8GHz. There’s 2GB of RAM (that’s the maximum it can take), an 11.6in 1,366 x 768 touchscreen display, dual speakers with Beats Audio, Windows 8, a 64GB SSD, up to seven hours battery life as a tablet and 14 as a laptop, NFC, HD Webcam, Bluetooth, an 8-megapixel camera, Intel HD graphics, two USB ports, a large touchpad called the "Imagepad" and Wi-Fi.
With a thickness of 19mm (with the keyboard attached), the Envy X2 is reasonably sized. Take off the attachment and its weight goes down to 700g, which for a 11.6in device is more than reasonable. As expected, it comes crammed with HP software like Connected Music, Connected Photo, Games, Connected ePrint and Recovery Manager.
