Reset every few hours due to faulty mouse pad DrvrPosted .
This could be a good hybrid but HP refuses to fix the memory leak in the mouse pad driver. I'm not sure if Synaptics is part of HP or a contractor but the driver will slowly eat up all of the memory until the PC becomes unresponsive. If you don't mind resetting every few hours, then it's not bad, but unfortunately the PC becomes non-responsive at very bad times while I'm working. If you can't deal with this, don't buy it. HP refuses to address this issue so don't expect it to get fixed since they are putting their heads in the sand on this issue. For your mental health, I wouldn't recommend trying to get support from HP unless you like pain. This could be good punishment for a misbehaving child-make them try and get a problem resolved with HP customer support. This could be more effective than a time out. I exchanged the 1st one with the problem but realized it was a mouse pad driver issue after the second one failed. Another work around is disable the mouse pad driver and only use the touch screen. That is too inconvenient for me though. Most people that own this probably just reset it every few hours but it's annoying.No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Mostly great computer!Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
This is a great computer that I got on a special promo in a best buy retailer. I got lucky because I got this product right at it's launch and I got it for the price of the last generation split because best buy was out of stock with that one. Anyway... This is a solid computer and I love it... mostly. What I love: I love the ability to turn this into a tablet where I do digital art and play games. The design is sleek and sexy. The i5 processor is the fastest on any computer I've owned before. While I do not play the super graphic heavy games, I do play first person shooter games and Assassins Creed and this computer handles those games fine, and it also supported the old version of MYST that i've had for ever. I was excited about that. The computer has great storage and the ability to add another 128 gigs with sd cards. I'm glad it has 2 3.0 USB ports instead of one. I like the key board. It's comfortable and has good key travel. I type fast and accurately on this. I am a freelance writer so that was a necessary feature for me. The computer is fast and so far reliable although I've only had it for less than a week :) What I don't like: The part that docks the screen folds back to form a lip on the bottom when the computer is open. This is fine for resting on a table but can be uncomfortable on the lap. Also, there is a small part on the edge of this same piece that is lifted from the rest. It's not a big deal but it does annoy me a bit in a device that costs almost a thousand dollars. I also don't like the track pad. I'm finally getting used to it, but the gestures are overly sensitive and I'm constantly accidentally switching between tabs and pages and it drives me a little bonkers. Other than that the gestures are convenient, it has just taken some getting used to. Overall, I really like this computer. I am a full-time student, a freelance writer, and an amateur digital artist. This computer performs all three functions well.

HP keeps innovating with Split factorPosted .I would recommend this to a friend
HP has been on the rebound lately with very innovating designs that take full advantage of Microsoft latest Windows 8 OS. Staring from last year's excellent Envy X2 they have improved upon that design and now take ful advantage of the newest Intel Haswell Ultra-Low Voltage mobile CPUs. This particular model comes with very fresh off the mint Haswell Core i5 4240Y (where Y stands for ultra-low voltage). This CPU performance is comparable to Core i3U model that comes with more traditional laptops but allows laptop to run at even lower voltage, resulting in design that completely omits any fans. This laptop is completely, totally, unrestrictively SILENT! That's right - even pushing it to the extremes you won't hear it complaining and venting the heat. HP uses the entire back side of the laptop to passively dissipate any heat and it never gets hot, only warm to the touch. Another innovation that distinguishes this hybrid from more traditional laptops is ability to undock the keyboard from the display and turn it into pseudo tablet. Why pseudo? Well, this is still too heavy and, frankly, too big to manage slate that you will have to prop against something (be it your lap or laying it flat on the desk). And the resolution of 1368x768, while working fine in regular mode and on legacy Windows desktop applications, really lacks sharpness when using this device as a tablet. You can see that fonts are lacking the definition and your eyes are keep searching for larger fonts that compensate that overall feeling of out-of-focus text. HP has a better 1080P display as an option when ordering this laptop from their Web Site, but alas, BestBuy edition does not provide any options. What you get instead is better value as BestBuy can command higher discounts and push larger volumes of laptops into the masses. And for most of the consumers this would be fine. The nitpicks that I have so far in my few days with the laptop are humongous system downloads that I had to deal with the whole first day and some initial problems with TouchPad. Split X2, very surprisingly, comes preloaded with only Windows 8. Windows 8.1 update is nowhere to be found and needs to be downloaded (3.2GB file) and installed (instal alone takes good 30 minutes). Aside from that, most of the drivers need to be updated by using HP Support Assistant program and you get yourself very busy doing just maintenance for the whole first day. Microsoft seriously needs to rethink the whole Windows support model. Even though they got substantially better over the years of automating most of the maintenance tasks, compared to iPads and Android tablets that require virtually zero maintenance, they still lag behind and way, way behind, alienating casual consumers who want to simply use the newest laptop and not to babysit it through the never-ending updates, upgrades and driver instability. Speaking of which, the touchpad on the keyboard that comes courtesy of Synaptics driver, still has issues. When docked to the keyboard (obviously, as touchpad is not accessible otherwise). I experience pretty regular moments when touchpad simply stops working. No error messages, no strange alarming sounds, but one moment your touchpad operates great and then the next moment it acts like it's just a part of the keyboard surface, not responding to any clicking, sliding, caressing, shouting at or even frustrated banging. The only solution that I found so far is to quickly undock the display and then redock it again. This restores touchpad like nothing happened before. I even updated TouchPad driver by going to HP support site and making sure I downloaded and installed latest available version, but this instability is still present. I am very confident that HP along with Synaptics would solve this issue in the next few weeks, but for now, you have been warned. What's really great about this laptop is performance. I already mentioned speedy CPU from Intel. But aside from that it comes equipped with 4GB of memory (that, Hurray!, can be upgraded to 8GB for those who need every single byte of it), very good Smasung SSD 128GB Hard Drive, excellent dual antenna, Wi-Fi N Wireless connectivity and plethora of possible epxansions, starting from 2 USB 3.0 connectors, full size (!!!) HDMI, two built-in memory Card adapters (one for Micro SDX cards in the display itself and one more for regular size memory cards in the keyboard tray), two (another !!!) batteries that work very smart to make sure the battery in keyboard always discharges first and sacrifices itself to keep battery in the display charged to the fullest possible level, so when you undock, you always have plenty of juice to keep using your laptop in tablet mode. Finally, for those with some PC skills, there is an additional Hard Drive tray in the keyboard, that can be used to install either another SSD Hard Drive, or, better yet, slower but much larger regular small factor Hard Drive for all your large files. Now, to do that, you need to first purchase a Hard Drive tray adapter from HP and then proceed with carefully disassembling the keyboard and installing an additional drive. This is not a super duper difficult job, but obviously, not for novices. Considering that most ultrabooks on the market not come with zero expandability options, this is a very nice gesture from HP. Few words on the bonus Intel software download pack that comes free with purchase of this (and any other Intel based laptop from BestBuy). It has some very good software from photo/video/music viewing and editing to latest and greatest games (Grid 2, Total War Rome II, Civilization V) that you can truly enjoy on this laptop. With games, only Civilization V can be played nicely because this laptop does not have a dedicated graphics card and the one that comes built-in into Core i5 CPU is not the fastest one on the market. But you can use the codes for the rest of the games to play on your home desktop or more powerful gaming laptop. Nice tip: Civilization V can be played in touch mode, meaning you do not need to have keyboard and/or mouse as entire interface can be controlled via touches and gestures directly on the display. This is very nice and deep strategic game and the very first in the world completely fanless computer that is powerful enough to handle it. Overall, I enjoy this laptop/tablet tremendously and feel very confident working with HP product that is one of the best in quality and support.

Brillant MachinePosted .I would recommend this to a friend
I have been looking for months for a 4th Gen i5 Windows 8.1 tablet at a good price point that was a bit larger than my 10" android tablet. This unit more than fit the bill. I looked hard and long at the Surface Pro 2 tablet, among many others, but opted for the larger screen and much easier price. Took Delivery a couple days ago and I am delighted with the unit. It fits nicely into our network of Windows 8.1 computers and Windows Phone 8; very keen on the flow and synchronization of data and resources in the Windows Ecosystem. Having a larger screen is much easier to read than the 10" tablet and it still fits nicely on the coffee table while watching the tube. The unit is light years faster than my high end android tablet. One of my main uses of the android was to browse the Internet, which is Painfully Slow. The Slate X2 actually is more responsive than my two i7 desktops, which certainly comes from the SSD hard drive. Was a bit concerned about the screen resolution stats, but on the screen it is brilliant. Batteries seem to go on forever and the recharge is unbelievably fast. Plenty of ports and give HP high points for installing USB 3.0 ports as well as a full size HDMI. The 128 GB SSD is lighting quick and more than enough space for loading Windows 8.1, MS Office, games, documents and tons of pictures. I am leaving the videos off though as it is not large enough. If you need more storage you can install a 500 GB drive in the keyboard. The keyboard is adequate and much better than smaller keyboards on 10” tablets but not made for touch typing, though it is suitable for business application. The Touch Pad works well, but it is sensitive. There may be an adjustment for that but I have not looked for it as of yet as I am using a USB wireless mouse. Start up takes about 7-8 second to completely load Windows. As for games, I found that Civilization V drags a bit in video. The graphics are great and fast in typical use but the Intel Graphics in the CPU is not made for intensive gaming. Not sure about the use of plastic for the case, but I am hoping HP did their homework and case proves to be durable over the years. I read a few complaints in reviews, which are typical, such as not being to upgrade the Windows 8 to 8.1, not being able to connect to the router/internet and about slow internet speeds, etc. I have had no such issues. Windows upgrade to 8.1 went smoothly, hooks to the router immediately and the Wi-Fi speed is fast. If you do buy I suggest downloading the latest BIOS and there is also a download for the latest Wi-Fi card driver at Intel’s site. Bottom line, I cannot give this unit enough kudos, and this comes with decades of IT department experience. It is a best buy.

The best combo..tablet and computerPosted .I would recommend this to a friend
First I have owned every tablet ipad, android (transformer, nexus 10, galaxy tab and windows (surface rt, pro, yoga 13, 11s with haswell) The HPx split that is on display at Best buy is the 3rd gen and i3 processor, LCD display. This reboot is all brushed metal (Mac book clone) with the new 4th gen intel processor which adds more batter life and does not require a fan with an I5 processor. Also this version as an IPS display which is brighter colors, larger view angles and clearer display. This HP SPlit x2 has 2 USB 3.0 ports, full HDMI out, and SD card slot. Also this has a micro SD card slot on the tablet itself. The keyboard can also be opened to add a 500 GB hard drive (kit costs 50 dollars). The system is solid a bit heavy with the keyboard, but the heft allows the tablet not to tip over and be top heavy (looking at you Asus Transformer) With the 128 GD SSD, I5 processor and 4 GB of ram (can also be expanded with some work) this table screams. Zipping around web pages, games, apps and rebooting this HP is an amazing 13in slate and laptop. It also has Beats audio and it is very loud. Holding the tablet and watching a Netflix moves is like having a theater in your hands. Then you place it on the magnetic hinge and you have a full keyboard, additional battery, and multitouch trackpad. Quick charging and you can charge the tablet and keyboard separately (also both have headphone jacks). The keyboard always powers the tablet so you 13in screen is always at 100% (about 8-9 hours). Then about double that with the keyboard battery (this is where it is better than the surface pro and yoga laptops) I ran Burnout Paradise City on it, with HDMI to my TV and it was well performing gaming machine (no tablet can do that). No fan noise and it did not get that hot. Then with chromecast you install Chome and cast tabs to your TV for movie watching. Granted the screen is big and this tablet is not fitting in your back or jacket pocket. But if you are looking for a tablet and laptop that do it all with no limitations on space, apps, ports, functionality, features, usability etc then this is for your for under 900 dollars!! Oh and just wait for Windows 8.1- this baby is going to go from a 10 to an 11.

A good concept|Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
This is a decent computer at a good price. The only problems I have with it are, it is top heavy as in all the weight is really in the screen where the components are of course but when you life the computer by the keyboard as you are accustomed to doing with a standard laptop it feels like it is going to break (it never has or even bent but it does feel like there is too much weight on the board), sometimes the touchpad will stop working for a period of about 10-30 seconds and I need to use the touchscreen for a mouse. The SSD gives this computer a good start-up and shut-down time, and I don't really miss anything with the small hard drive or lack of optical drive. I would recommend buying some flash storage, external hard drive, external optical drive or some SD cards as you don't want to bog down a SSD. The keyboard has USB 3 and 2 slots, a multi card reader built in, and HDMI out, the screen itself has a microSD reader, speakers, webcam and separate battery built in. All in all it is a middle of the pack PC at a slightly higher price for its advanced functionality, not a bad trade-off.

Good, but I got two bad units and gave up|Posted .No, I would not recommend this to a friend
If I'd gotten a good unit, I would have rated this product 5 stars. I loved the lightweight nature of it, and I really enjoyed taking it to school with me and having the ability to run full versions Photoshop and Microsoft Visual Studio on a Windows 8 tablet. It's a great design. Unfortunately, I bought two bad units. The first one only lasted 3 hours. I brought it home and ran the usual Windows updates. I was only updating Windows 8, not yet upgrading to 8.1. During one of the reboots, the computer locked up. I left it for several hours and went to dinner, only to return and find that it would no longer go past the HP logo boot screen. It wouldn't reach the BIOS or Windows. I returned that unit the next day and brought home a new one. I loved it and used it every day for about two weeks. I updated to Windows 8.1 and installed Start Menu 8 to simulate the traditional Windows desktop. I used the Metro screen when I used the tablet, and I stuck with normal Windows while in laptop mode. It worked great for all of my schoolwork and graphic design needs. Plenty of memory and processor power. Unfortunately, by the end of two weeks I noticed a gap forming in the hinge on the laptop keyboard where the tablet attaches. Two molded plastic pieces surround either side of the attachment mechanism, and these pieces were coming apart. I'm a very careful person. I didn't mistreat the laptop at all, so this wasn't an issue of wear & tear. If that's how it looked after two weeks, then I can only imagine it would have fallen apart 3-5 weeks down the road. That's why I returned the laptop and gave up on this particular model.

Best laptop I've owned. Plus its a tabletPosted .I would recommend this to a friend
This is a fantastic laptop. Very light, and in convertible form you get a huge tablet with a full-size windows desktop. The only thing that doesn't work great for me as a tablet on the Windows desktop is window scrolling. Battery life is outstanding, and the machine is very, very fast. About 1.5 seconds to boot up from cold shutdown. The full size HDMI port is wonderful. The Intel HD graphics are able to easily handle the 1680x1050 native resolution on my 22 inch external monitor. One nice aspect is the ability to upgrade this device with an additional hard drive and more RAM. There is room under the keyboard for a laptop-sized HDD, and RAM can be upgraded in the tablet unit from 4GB to 8GB. There are instructions for doing this yourself on the HP website, but it would probably void your warranty. Possibly BestBuy could do it and keep it under warranty. When I tried to upgrade to Windows 8.1, I got it working, but I had intermittent trouble with USB devices. I messed with it for a couple of days, and finally decided to revert back to Windows 8 with a refresh, because I was getting too many errors on my USB keyboard. I think the problem is that Win 8.1 is so new, and Intel hasn't put out enough drivers yet to handle their USB chipsets. Intel did have one driver update available for the chipset associated with this laptop, but when I tried to apply it, I was unable to get the drivers to actually upgrade. But - long story short, I didn't see anything in Win 8.1 that I needed, and the device is running much better under Win 8 again after the refresh. I think that once Intel pushes all its driver updates out and does some bug patching, this device will run well on Win 8.1. I'll probably wait a couple of months for them to sort out some problems before I try it again.
