I wanted to quickly note that the dock itself is capable of being used as an external power bank for portable electronics. I use mine all of the time for this purpose. Even without the tablet attached the keyboard dock still allows devices to charge from it's internal battery, which comes in very handy for someone that's always on the go and wants to minimize the amount of hardware they have to carry on their person. Aside from that little factoid you pretty much touched on every pro/con of this device. Personally I love this as a secondary portable. It's useful when I don't want to haul my massive desktop replacement with me but still need to be able to do some simple PC functions on the go.
Thank you, nice review! I wonder why HP chose not to include the new HP Control Zone™ trackpad, which HP introduced in the HP Spectre 13 ultrabook? Looks like a nice feature, which leaves prospective x2 buyers wanting!
Bought an Envy 15, not even one year, aluminum oxidizes to black, screen has dust collecting between panel and glass... took it to support "We can't cover that with warranty"... "Why? Dust in screen is clearly defect" "Cause we have to replace the whole panel" "WTF kindof answer is that? how is that my problem" ... shitty hp
Silent companion. Haswell makes it possible: HP offers a fanless 13.3-inch notebook with the Spectre 13 x2, which transforms into a tablet with a push of a button. However, the bulky detachable is certainly no bargain with a retail price of almost 1,100 Euros.
