HP's Tablet/Laptop Hybrid Envy x2 Launching in January

HP has announced that its tablet/laptop hybrid, the Envy x2, will now launch during January of 2013.

The computer manufacturer's Envy x2 hybrid "convertible" was originally scheduled to release on November 14, but will be available for consumers next month, it confirmed.

"Customers can expect to receive an Envy x2...in January, if they order today. Customers who ordered their units on Dec. 3 or prior are expected to receive their PC by Dec. 21 at the latest," a HP representative said. "HP expects additional units to ship in January."

The Envy x2 utilizes a new power-efficient dual-core "Clover Trail" Z2760 system-on-a-chip created by Intel, allowing the device to run the full 32-bit Windows 8.

Priced at $849.99, the HP Envy x2 is powered by an 1.8GHz processor, with the detachable 11.6-inch screen sporting a pixel resolution of 1,366 x 768. A full-size keyboard with a trackpad dubbed the 'Imagepad' is included, as is ports for USB, HDMI and SD card slots. Beats Audio, HD Webcam, NFC technology and an 8-megapixel camera rounds off the features.

    Cuase then everybody will say that there are Uberoverpriced, that who needs that much firepower and things along those lines

    The other side of convertibles (from laptop to tablet, not from tablet to laptop) DO have i series processors: XPS DUO 12, VAIO DUO 11, and so on, but they (vaio duo) go from $1200 to $1500.

    I don't care about the intel cpu, I want a 1080p display with 10 hour battery life, instant on and days of standby time.

    - Resolution sucks
    - Base model is 2GB RAM (god awful)
    - almost 1 pound heavier than a same sized Macbook Air and greatly underpowered
    - design is horrible

    This is why HP is a company is decaying before our eyes the past 5 years.

    - Yes, the resolution does suck
    - 2GB of RAM isn't bad
    - It's a tablet/laptop hybrid. Something Apple probably wouldn't do in the near future
    - I think the design looks good

    2GB RAM? Keep it. 8GB minimum on anything running x86 code. ...and at least 1440x900. Why can't they get this correct?

    halcyon2GB RAM? Keep it. 8GB minimum on anything running x86 code. ...and at least 1440x900. Why can't they get this correct?You do realize x86 code is 32 bit? The maximum memory supported by 32 bit coding is 4GB. I agree 2GB is a little small for Win 8, but you won't find this chip running x64 software anytime soon; it only supports 32 bit...

    They need these to be 8GB, to produce a sub-par product and expect it to do well is exactly why HP is turning into a complete joke of a company.

    I'm hoping somebody will make one with the latest E series APU and 6 -8 gigs a RAM. These days anything with 2gigs of RAM is not worth it.
