HP's Envy X2 is part of an ongoing effort to fuse the laptop and tablet into a single device with the touch-based Windows 8 operating system at its heart.
The $850 X2 features an 11.9-inch display (1366 x 768) that weighs in at 1.5 pounds (just a tad heavier than the full-sized iPad, despite the larger screen). The included keyboard dock brings the total weight to 3.1 pounds or what you'd expect from an Ultrabook.
On the performance side, the X2 is powered by a 1.8GHz Intel Atom processor with 2GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory. The tablet offers a built-in microSD card slot while the keyboard dock pitches in with two USB 2.0 ports and an HDMI output. Beats audio enhancement is also included alongwith a 720p webcam and an 8-megapixel main camera.
Reviewers, for the most part, weren't sold on the X2. The keyboard dock was almost universally panned as clumsy and the price tag knocked as exorbindant for the performance.
