HP Envy x2 13t Touch Laptop & Tablet


HP Envy x2 13t Touch Laptop 2-in-1

The HP Envy x2 13t is yet another 2-in-1 laptop / tablet hybrid with a detachable keyboard. The 13.3-inch device however stands out from the crowd with its Intel Core M-series Broadwell processor options instead of the much slower and more common Intel Atom found in devices with the same form factor. In addition to the good CPU for everyday home and office use and luxury looking design with thin profile and aluminum finish, the HP Envy x2 13t offers premium notebook options such as a full HD display resolution and solid state drives with a capacity of up to 512GB. Furthermore, you can have the 2-in-1 configured with 4GB or 8GB of RAM memory instead of usual 2GB in similarly looking devices.

Besides the 13.3″ IPS wide viewing angle display and core components, the tablet portion carries a Microsoft Surface-style kickstand that works in a variety of positions, front facing Beats Audio branded speakers and 720p web camera, two USB 3.0 connectors, a full size HDMI video port, a 3.5mm combo audio jack, and a microSD card reader. The device has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections, but wired Ethernet LAN network support is missing.

The provided thin keyboard dock – or more precisely keyboard cover, doesn’t offer anything more than chiclet backlight keys and multi-touch single-piece trackpad. It’s good to know the cover is included in the price of the PC.

What’s not included in the HP Envy x2 13t package is the HP Active Pen, which is supported by the screen of the device. As it name says, the pen is based on active digitizer technology. Instead of a dedicated pen slot, you can carry it in a loop on the right edge of the keyboard cover.

The whole system weighs in at 4 pounds, while the tablet part weighs 2.8 pounds. Thickness of the device is 0.5″ for the tablet only and 0.8 for the tablet and keyboard combined.

Overall, this is a very portable laptop hybrid with premium-class features and sufficient computing speed for the average user. On the negative side, it cost much more than the budget-friendly 2-in-1s such as the Pavilion x2, while the basic Surface Pro 3 for slightly more money offers similar computing speed, a higher-resolution screen, and digitizer pen included in the package.
