HP Envy x2


Like most of the hardware in this round-up, the Envy x2 is a detachable convertible: Attach the tablet to the dock and you have a classic clamshell laptop. HP spent considerable design effort to create a simple docking experience, using both magnetic and physical latches. In all, we found docking to be an elegant, confidence-inspiring affair. Indeed, when you pick up the system by its 11.6-inch, 1,366x768 display when in laptop mode, it doesn't really feel like a discrete tablet is part of the packaging.

As with other HP mobile systems, the Envy x2 integrates Beats Audio for improved sound quality, as well as front and rear facing cameras for video conferencing. The tablet alone is 8.5mm thick and weighs 1.5 pounds (the dock adds another 1.6 pounds).
