HP Envy x2
Is it a tablet? Or is it a laptop? Well, it's a bit of both! The new HP ENVY x2 is a hybrid notebook with a detachable screen. So, if you want a laptop, you have a keyboard. Detach the keyboard from the device (it comes with a magnetic latch) and voila, it turns into a tablet!
Preloaded with Windows 8, the notebook comes with an 11.6in HD touch display, a webcam and an 8-megapixel camera. It also boasts a battery life of up to seven hours with HD video playback on the tablet and more than 12 hours of the same when attached to the keyboard. Check it out at any HP outlet and prepare to shell out about Rs 59,990 for it.
