The HP Pav­il­ion x2 earns our praise for be­ing able to in­cor­po­rate the func­tion­al­ity of a note­book and the porta­bil­ity of a tablet into a sin­gle Win­dows 10 de­vice.

This won't be a prob­lem with the HP Pav­il­ion x2 – a hy­brid 2-in-1 de­vice that can be used as either a tablet or a note­book.

Pop open the lid of the Pav­il­ion x2 and you'll be greeted by its 10.1-inch WXGA (1,280 x 800) touch-en­abled dis­play, which is bright, vi­brant, and has a wide view­ing an­gle. Its only short­com­ing is its mea­ger WXGA res­o­lu­tion, which is un­doubt­edly a lit­tle low for to­day's stan­dards – even if you were to com­pare it against the likes of a smart­phone. The dis­play's deficit in pix­els is es­pe­cially ap­par­ent when smaller-sized fonts are in­volved, as they would ap­pear fuzzy around the edges.

The Pav­il­ion x2 is pow­ered by a 1.33GHz In­tel Atom Z3736F pro­ces­sor, In­tel HD Graph­ics, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of flash stor­age space. While not the brawni­est of hard­ware, but from what we've tested, it's cer­tainly more than ad­e­quate

The Pav­il­ion x2’s front-fac­ing Bang & Olufsen speak­ers are gen­uinely ca­pa­ble of belt­ing out loud and lus­cious sounds.
