There was no denying that after our hands-on in Berlin with the HP Envy x2 tablet our own Michael Fisher instantly developed a sympathy for the slate, even if we later asked whether this model will manage to somehow push the company ahead in this entire Windows 8 game.
HP just announced the availability and pricing of its Windows 8 portfolio and among the ultrabooks, notebooks and ‘sleekbooks’ (sic!) there’s the Envy x2. It is labeled as a “hybrid PC that delivers the power of a notebook and the freedom of a tablet” with the help of the detachable keyboard and trackpad. Fans should expect it to surface on the American market (pun intended) on November 14 with a price tag of $849.99 and above.
Main features include an 11.6-inch HD IPS screen with 400-nit-brightness, 1.80GHz dual core Intel Atom CPU, 2GB of RAM, 8MP primary and 2MP front-facing camera, up to 64GB of storage, and NFC.
