A rare larger-screen hybrid, the HP Spectre x2 aims to be both a portable laptop and a video-friendly slate. The price is right, but the design feels awkward and the wonky touch pad makes it hard to use as a full-time laptop.
Some new budget all-in-ones and a tablet-laptop are part of a small set of offerings at CES.

The HP Pavilion X2 comes in both 11- and 13-inch screen sizes, but at $599.99 is it too expensive to compete with other cheaper hybrids also hitting the market this year?
Though it boasts plenty of ports and a physical keyboard, the SlateBooks x2's offerings don't quite match its $480 price.
With an SSD in its detachable tablet and a HDD in the keyboard base, HP's Split x2 has fewer compromises than other hybrids.
The HP Envy x2’s capacity to be a full Windows 8 tablet or dock with a keyboard works as well as advertised, provided you’re willing to live with slower performance at a high price. You’re paying for style.
The HP Envy x2's biggest selling points are its high-quality build and included full keyboard accessory.
With its high-resolution screen and battery-boosting keyboard dock, this could be the beginning of the end for your laptop.
With a detachable 13-inch tablet screen and large keyboard, this hybrid can be a full-time PC.
HP's Pavilion 11 X2 is a Windows 8.1 laptop-tablet hybrid.
