Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great speakers
The front facing speakers help a lot to make music an immersive experience on the Pavilion X2. They offer sufficient bass, as well as clear trebles.
Pro Decent performance
The Intel Core M3-6Y30 and Intel HD 515 Graphics, paired with 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD offers very good performance for its price. The Core M is ranked below an i3 processor, however not by much. The bigger difference is that the Core M is designed to be used with passive cooling (no fans) and draw very little power, making it ideal for mobile machines that require more performance than the Atom series.
Pro Good keyboard
While small (about 25% smaller than the average keyboard), the keys offer 1.47mm of travel and require 55g to actuate - both typical for higher end laptops.
Pro Good design
The Pavilion X2 is an attractive looking laptop, or even tablet is you choose to remove it from the keyboard. There is no latch for the keyboard - it's held in place by magnets. Small stabilizers on the keyboard prevent the top from bouncing too much.
Pro Lots of ports for a tablet
The X2 has a USB Type C port (used as the charging port), as well as a USB 2.0 port, Micro SD card slot and mini HDM. All of these ports are located on the tablet's right side near the bottom.
Con Little storage
The storage caps out at 128GB, and the SD slot can only add another 32GB. This is plenty if you look at it as a tablet, but that's not much storage for a primary laptop.
Con Lackluster display
the 12" 1920x1080 touch screen doesn't offer competitive color range, and at max brightness is dimmer than most of its competition. It's resolution is high, giving it an advantage over many other laptops in its price range
