This probably goes without saying, but the HP SlateBook x2 is only a smart buy if you intend to make good use out of the keyboard. It's important to remember that the dock isn't a fun extra here: it comes in the box, and it defines the way you're supposed to use the product.

The HP SlateBook x2 is a fine tablet that does nothing exceptionally well and is saddled with a noticeably bad color tint problem. While $480 may seem like a deal given the inclusion of the keyboard, the overall experience offered here doesn't quite match that price.

Overall, though, the x2 isn't the most satisfying tablet or laptop. You'll need to think through the trade-offs before purchasing this versatile little hybrid.

HP makes a strong attempt at a proper convertible with the SlateBook x2, a screaming-fast, Tegra 4-powered Android tablet, but it's not without flaws.

As a result, the SlateBook x2 doesn’t excel at being either a tablet or a laptop. For now, you’d be better off going with a dedicated tablet and a Bluetooth keyboard.

A tiny touchpad coupled with buggy software makes the HP SlateBook x2 disappointing as both a laptop and a tablet.

We’d recommend you stick to the tried and tested iPad 4th gen, Samsung Galaxy Note 800 and more available in the market if you want a good overall performing tablet.

The SlateBook (shown below) is a 10-inch tablet with a Tegra 4 chip -- one of the first to be announced by any company, in fact. Though it's a companion to the $169 Slate 7, it packs considerably higher-end specs.

In short: the HP SlateBook x2 looks good, is well built, has a great screen and Tegra 4 is an exciting prospect.

We came away with two thoughts. One being that HP is looking to dive head first into the Android tablet game. And second being the Tegra 4 is one impressive quad-core chip.

While the tablet probably won't set the consumer market on fire, it could well capture a significant chunk of the enterprise and bring-your-own-device markets, winning users over with its slew of productivity apps and sturdy design.
