    I'm not very tech savvy, but I'm in the process of buying a hybrid tablet. The one that has caught my eye the most is the HP Envy x2. Most of what I do is web browse, video watch and download torrents. And i'm just wondering if it's even possible to download a torrent client like utorrent or bittorent on the Envy? I know it's suppose to be able to download almost any program like a regular computer, but was just wondering if this was one of the programs it can't download.


    Oh, and also i read something about the wireless card not being able to handle too much data? is this true? is there a small wireless cap?

    Thanks guys!

    It runs windows 8 so why not? You can download torrents.
    Don't have a clue about wireless card though but a wireless cap seems unlikely to me.

    It is not the best wifi antenna, otherwise everything works fine...though I have a nasty bug:

    Its running full Windows so of course it will be able to download and run a program like utorrent. Some people have complained of a weak WiFi antenna but I myself haven't had any issues. I do believe that due to the low power requirements of the Intel Atom chipset that the WiFi antenna is only capable of a max speed of 54mbs. But seriously, that's faster than most peoples internet bandwidth anyways so what's the big deal?

    Awesome! Thank you for the info you've answered all my questions. The 50mbs cap is exactly what i heard and i thought the same thing, since the average connection speed is 10mbs anyways.

    that and you probably won't even get 10mbps while torrenting anyways, but I have an hp envy x2 and it does torrenting just fine. I don't have any antenna issues, but I could just have been a lucky one, my wifi connections always seem perfectly fine to me.

    yeah true, i average around 1mps anyways, so as long as i can at least get that it should be fine.
