    Default HP ENVY X2 up on HP.com

    I am not sure when it actually arrived but I found this hiding amongst the laptops in the Home and Home Office store:

    HP ENVY x2 11t-g000 | HP Official Store

    Update: I did not see a pen (stylus) as an optional purchase. Dec 19 estimated ship date.

    Doing the device shuffle again:
    * New * Dell Venue 8 Pro - my ultra mobile device
    HP Elitepad with Win 8.1 (used) - looking for purpose now
    Fujitsu Q702 i5 with Win 8.1 - my main device
    Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 with Win 7 - has started to collect dust

    And what I find totally LUDICROUS about that web page is the photo gallery that shows not one single shot illustrating the fact that this is not a laptop...

    What on earth is wrong with HP's marketing department?

    It goes back to, at least, the release of the TM2 and Slate 500, when they buried the tablets so deep into their website, that you'd need Caterpillar's help to find them. Way to go during a tablet fad, HP!

    Shame. Looks like N-trig device. It looked great until I saw the stylus.

    Nope, it's not N-Trig, it's Atmel...

    At least, I am pretty sure that it will be that; the same as used on the Elitepad 900

    At least I know that the ram is upgradeable
    "Upgradeable to 2 GB LPDDR"

    Is there any real reason to buy this over the Samsung Ativ? I cannot see one! 7 hour battery life... yay

    You must be mistaken. As tabletpcitalia stated the 4th gen of N-Trig pens are far better than the predecessor and probablay even better than Wacom as they are more precise even in the corner and edges.
    For Atmel, I am not sure what to think of this new kind of tech, but it seems like it is behind N-Trig and Wacom in terms of usability. Just watch the official video of Maxstylus more closely (only draws in big letters/numbers, doesn't seem very smooth, always zooms in and out)...

    It boggles the mind! I think the Ativ 500T and the TPT2 are much better deals.

    I tested a pre-production Envy x2 for three days last month during SMAU 2012 in Milan. I'm sure that is no an N-Trig or Wacom device, but no one, even in HP, has been capable of tell me what kind of digitizer it is; the device manager gave no informations about this.

    According to the press photo, the pen is the same in ElitePad and Envy, but if you take a very datailed look to the photos, it looks different from Atmel pens, so there is possibilities that it is not Atmel.

    It is an error. The RAM is not upgradeable, 2 GB is the maximum for the Envy.

    Except for the digitizer, from a performance/specs point of views, Envy, ATIV or Lenovo Tablet 2 are all the same tablet. But in my opinion the Envy x2 building quality is far superior from the ATIV - the XE500 looks very cheap, it is all plastic; the Envy x2 have a full-metal body that gave a very, very, nice feeling.
    During last month I used Fujitsu Q702, Q572 and T902, Samsung ATIV XE500, Sony VAIO Duo 11, Toshiba U920t, Lenovo Twist, Asus VIVO Tab RT and the HP Envy was the only one Windows 8 device that, as first impression, I felt superior. I'll never buy one of it; compared to my EliteBook 2760p or tc1100 this device sucks (no ports, no user replaceable battery, 16:9 display, no Wacom, glossy screen, Atom, no pen silo, ...), but it is a very well-build device. If the digitizer is as good as Wacom, in my opinion it should be one of the best Atom tablet on the market.
    In last six years I used HP tc1100, 2740p, 2760p, tx2, tm2, tx1000; Acer C110; Dell XT, XT2, XT3, ST; Fujitsu Q550, T900, T901, T580, T4410, T5010, T730; Motion CL900; Panasonic CF-C1; Asus T101MT, B121, Samsung Q1 Original.
    Currently using HP EliteBook 2760p (i5-2410M, 8 GB RAM, 320 GB, Windows 7 Professional 6 bit) and Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 (Atom Z670, 2 GB, 28 GB SSD, Windows 8 Enterprise).

    ...dreaming a HP tc1200.
