I've loved the Envy X2, but the performance has been a little lacking. I've been waiting for the new atoms to come out with the 4gb of ram, but was disappointed to see that the Pavilion 11 x2 was plastic. So I saw that Best Buy had the Split X2 on sale last week, and took the plunge on the all aluminum Split X2 ultraportable. What a disappointment! At 13", it's too bulky and heavy for me to use as a tablet. The hinge is exactly the same, but flops around on the Split X2, and moves when touched under the extra weight. The weight difference also makes the whole thing a lot less care free for lugging around, and a pain to keep on your lap when the hinge starts digging in. Unfortunately even the aluminum case is worse, as it looses the brushed style, and looks like it might as well be cheap painted plastic. The keyboard also has an extra row on the right, which makes the whole thing feel off center and a pain to type on. Really, the only thing improved is the performance, but for me it isn't worth it. I'll just wait it out for someone to release something comparable to the Envy X2, but with upgraded internals. Anybody tried hacking in some upgraded parts yet?
