The HP Envy X2 packs a 1366x768 IPS display, an Intel Atom CPU, up to 64GB of solid-state storage, a 1080p front camera and an 8MP rear camera, HP's Beats Audio tech, and NFC support. Besides wireless connectivity, I/O seems to be housed on the dock, which we assume will be included and not sold separately. It contains a keyboard, an HDMI port, a card reader, two USB ports and a battery.

That's acceptable for a tablet that costs £399, such as the iPad, but for a machine that's nearly double the price it's not so easy to forgive. We're still waiting for a Windows 8 device that challenges the way we think about tech.
