The original Envy x2, which was released early last year, had a lot going for it in the portability and looks department -- it was super light and relatively slick. However, its actual real-world performance left a lot to be desired. Fast forward to now, and HP is refreshing its tablet/laptop device with a completely fresh design, one that's very reminiscent of Microsoft's Surface line. In addition to the newly added kickstand, HP's new Envy x2 comes in two different sizes: there are 13-inch and 15.6-inch models, starting at $750 ($100 less than the first-generation).

Pricing, naturally, will vary depending on just how much power you want behind the Windows 8.1 PC; the stock 15.6-inch Envy x2, for reference, sports an Intel Core M 5Y10 dual-core PC, 4GB RAM and a 500GB hybrid drive with 16GB of flash storage. If you want the whole nine yards though, you could end up spending upwards of $1,000. But would you pick it over a Surface Pro 3?
