    I just found a cheap used HP Pro 608 G1 (8 in). I am not usually a fan of any tablet larger than 10 inches. We have a Nuvision 8" and I have always liked using it...

    This one would be a good work station / on the go device though.

    That price has to be a place holder... as the asus nova go 8gb and 256 gb of storage was reported to be launching at $799... with upgrade rights to 10 Pro for free.

    I figured the HP one was going to be more... just because of the brand. We're all HP at our office so it works for us.... The Asus unit should be very nice too....

    Brand or no brand, it's hardly competitive pricing if it does turn out to be a thousand dollars .

    HP's x2 products are 2-in-one's. So that's always going to push the price up over normal laptops like the Asus.

    I didn't realize we were calling laptops that don't disconnect from the keyboard 2-in-1's. I guess so.

    I know what you mean, but there isn't much else we can do about that. So we have to use the terminology ASUS is using otherwise people will just get confused... since some are mistaking tide pods as food...

    Convertibles are 2 in 1 devices; ie can work in multiple modes. Basically the concept of a 2 in 1.

    For a gen 1 device, and being HP it does not surprise me the 1k price tag. Remembering the X3...And now it's had for 200, granted 2 yrs now since release.

    will wait for new gen devices to come along, the 835SD is pretty dated now.

    Hey all,

    I got the laptop/tablet/2-in-1/detachable/whatever yesterday.... I love the overall physical layout of it--where the buttons are, keyboard layout and feel.. the pen placement is just ok. I don't like (And I knew I wouldn't) that it has only 1 USB-C port. The keyboard case is infinitely adjustable, which I was unsure about from the website.

    There is no fan and it doesn't need one--I downloaded multiple gigabyte ISO's and installed stuff for an hour or so and the thing was still cold.

    Anyway, I find it's pretty fast.. maybe like a Core i5 with a spinning HD when launch apps. It's not laggy at all, touchscreen works great too.

    I upgraded it to Windows 10 Pro (was free, go into Settings, System, About, Change product key or upgrade your edition of Windows) successfully. The Pro upgrade took like 30 seconds so it's just a license key change--no big reinstall needed. Windows 10 looks and feels and operates exactly the same as on Intel.

    All my typical Intel x86/x64 programs work on it just fine. (ConnectWise client and Automate Control Center-these are IT support programs I use at work, Adobe Acrobat Reader 2017, Ninite pro, ipscan221),

    All Metro applications work fine too (facebook beta, amazon music, windows central, tesla control, office lens, authenticator, skype, office 365 admin).

    I can answer any specific questions if anyone has any....

    Thanks!

    Lucky one! I am still waiting until the device is available at the HP store, however it is sold out most of the time :(

    I am also more interested in the HP Envy X2 than the Asus Novago, because i do want to have a tablet. I currently have a Surface Pro, which i mostly use as laptop and an iPad Pro, which apparently i use as a tablet. I am looking to replace the iPad with the Envy X2. Price i believe is totally fine and in line with the iPad prices.

    I found some info on the presumably next model HP ENVY x2 tablet.

    It's not available on the store yet, but here's the specs. Main difference is 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD. The rest looks to be the same.

    worth every penny. I just got one, and love it. i initially wanted to stick win wins, but in the end switched to pro when I realized that S disables the command prompt.
