HP ENVY x2 could fool some into thinking this is a MacBook Air
If you are part of the Apple camp, you would most probably say that the MacBook Air was the catalyst for the PC camp to come up with the super slim and sexy Ultrabook. Here we are with one of the latest creations from HP’s camp, which is known as the HP ENVY x2. It is definitely a looker, I will give it that, and if you ever asked yourself the question of whether to tote around your notebook or your tablet to a given destination with just one choice, then you need not answer that question any more if you happen to pack a HP ENVY x2 in your backpack. I will let you know why right after the jump.
To keep up with the Joneses, the HP ENVY x2 will sport a sleek aluminum finish as well as an innovative hinge which has magnets, allowing you to glide the tablet smoothly into place, while keeping it there. Tipping the scales at a mere 3.1 pounds. If you separate the tablet, that particular portion will weigh a mere 1.5 pounds. Surely you will not complain any more about sore shoulders whenever you hit the showfloor at events and shows like CES?
Thanks to the inclusion of Windows 8 as its operating system of choice, you are able to interact with the HP ENVY x2 directly through its 11.6” HD touch display. Whenever you want to share a video or a presentation with others, the extra wide viewing angle will make that a possibility, and so too, does its bright 400-nit In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel deliver a visual experience that will not be forgotten too easily, be it indoors or outdoors. Want to keep in touch with family and friends from near and afar? Fret not, the HD webcam located at the front bezel will be able to cater for all your video call needs, while there is an 8-megapixel camera located at the rear of the HP ENVY x2 which will record great looking photos and shoot memorable videos.
SSD is used in favor of a hard drive, while the inclusion of NFC connectivity helps bring it to the next level of computing. You will be able to find the HP ENVY x2 in the market as soon as Windows 8 arrives, which should be sometime at the end of October.
