HP Pavilion X2 10.1 Detachable 2-in-1 Laptop - Tablet 32GB 10-k010nr 64GB 10-k020nr

The HP Pavilion x2 10 is an inexpensive 10.1-inch Windows device, which transforms from a tablet to a laptop in a snap, thanks to an innovative magnetic cover. The soft-touch cover allows two viewing angles in the laptop mode, instead on multiple Surface Pro 3-style. Also you can use it in the so called stand mode for movie watching and presentations or as a classic tablet.

Display Angle Modes

The display has the usual 1280×800 pixel count and IPS technology for better viewing angles. As for the performance, the HP Pavilion X2 10.1-inch starting at $299.99 delivers entry-level computing speed. It’s based on the Intel Atom Processor Z3736F quad-core processor with sufficient muscle for the daily web and office chores, multimedia playback, and low-end gaming, but not much more than that. RAM size is 2GB, which is OK for modest multitasking, while storage space can be either 32GB (10-K010Nr model name) or 64GB (10-k020nr). The latter is recommended, although it adds extra cost of $50 to the price.

HP bravely claims the battery life of the device is almost 12 hours. That’s not hard to believe given the battery is quite powerful, with a capacity of 35Whr, while the CPU is very power-savy and consumes only 2.2 Watts.

Another stand-out feature of this 2-in-1 is inclusion of a full-size USB 2.0 port, alongside the usual micro USB connector. This is a very convenient feature. Many tablets have only one micro USB, used for both charging and peripherals, so you can’t recharge the battery and use external USB devices simultaneously. Micro HDMI video out and SD card reader are also present.

As for the keyboard deck, it doesn’t provide additional port nor battery. The keyboard has isle-style non-backlit keys and trackpad with integrated buttons.

The Pavilion X2 10 has a frontal 720p web camera and stereo speakers.

The slate itself is 0.4″ thin while the keyboard base measures 0.3″. They weigh 2.5 pounds combined.

Office 365 Personal 1-year subscription included in the price is a standard among the Windows tablet with Atom CPUs. The Pavilion X2 10 is no exception.

    I just purchased the HP Pavillion 2x 10-n124dx. I mainly wanted to use my WordPerfect word processing program on this laptop. However, I need the function keys to work as the traditional function keys for my WordPerfect shortcuts, ie F7 is exit, F4 is indent, etc. I tried to get HP support help in disabling the hotkeys but after 2 attempts with two chats, the last one lasting 1-3/4 hrs, nothing worked.

    Do you know if I can do this for my laptop? If so, how? If I can’t accomplish this, I will be returning the laptop to Best Buy. Thank you

      Have you tried to disable hotkey functionality in BIOS of the laptop? I’m not sure how it’s done on this particular model, but generally on the HP Pavilion laptops you should enter BIOS (press f10 key right after powering on the laptop) and then change the Action Key Mode settings (disable or enable) in the System Configuration section of BIOS.

    This convertible doesn’t sit in your lap as well as others, but that’s about the only small downfall to this computer. It turns on from completely shut down in under 10 seconds, and wakes up from sleep-mode in about 2 seconds. The keyboard and track-pad is better than most other detectable keyboards (including the one that comes with the Microsoft Surface). The only downside to the keyboard is that it isn’t backlit, however no other computers in this price range (that I know of) come with backlit keyboards. The speakers are not too loud, but the good news is that because they are front facing and true stereo, they product an easy to hear sound. The build quality overall is a bit better than you expect from a device that uses so much plastic. It is not the most ridged build material, however it is not bad aesthetically or to touch. Lastly, everything you would want from such a device, it does well: Touchscreen is responsive, it is bright enough, is easy to hold in one hand (because it has a tapered design), is extremely light, and is very snappy at doing light tasks.

    had mine for about five months now. dropped it a couple times and its still working great. great battery life, and good keyboard for the size. it would be nice if the computer worked more like a traditional clamshell laptop. also the speakers are a little disapointing. other than that this is a fantastic portable computer/tablet for basic computing tasks such as creating documents and surfing the web. it is not great for multitasking nor heavy media editing or more than moderate gaming.

    Its a bit, “You get what you pay for.” I got mine on sale for $199, and paired with a year subscription (complimentary) to Microsoft Office 365 and 1-Terabyte of cloud storage. With that said, I believe this is the one of the best values for money. I wouldn’t have paid retail for this product.

    First one died after 8 hours of use. Second one ok, however, discover the the single audio jack will not allow audio input. The only way that I can see to input audio is via the internal. I was told by the vendor that audio could be inputed via the single jack. Audio in and audio out. I can not find anyway to input audio via the single jack even with an adapter plugged. FUBAR
