HP Pavilion x2
for the Pavilion x2 to perform casual tasks, such as web browsing and word processing, effortlessly. However, we would certainly appreciate it if it came with more storage space – 32GB is definitely a little too conservative and restrictive for a notebook-cumtablet.
And that brings us to the Pavilion x2's keyboard, which has chiclet keys that are adequately sized, but are unfortunately a little too shallow for comfortable speedtyping. Located right beneath the spacebar is the Pavilion x2's trackpad, which is not only responsive to our touch, but is also receptive to touch gestures like pinch-to-zoom and two-finger scrolling. The only issue that we have with the touchpad is its size, which happens to be shorter and just a tad wider than a business card.
But you don't necessarily have to navigate the Pavilion x2 using its miniature trackpad, because you can always to detach it from its keyboard dock and use it as a tablet instead – which is considerably more enjoyable to do.
This is primarily because of Windows 10's dedicated tablet mode, which is essentially a bigger, touch-friendlier version of the stock Windows 10 user interface. The Pavilion x2 will instinctively switch itself into tablet mode once you detach it from its keyboard dock.
Once in tablet mode, you'll notice that the Windows 10 Start menu has been replaced by the familiar ‘Modern' Start screen of Windows 8, and also the inclusion of an Android-like ‘Back' button on the taskbar. On top of that, all applications will boot up in fullscreen by default as well – just like a regular tablet. Ultimately, all these changes played a significant role in helping the Pavilion x2 function as a fullfledged, dedicated, Windows 10 tablet.
