Connected

The HP Envy x2 is a Windows 8 tablet slated for a release later this year. The 11.6-inch tablet comes with a full keyboard that essentially turns the device into a laptop. HP has not yet announced a price.

Metal body

The Envy x2 feels like a high-quality laptop and not so much a tablet. Also, the 8-megapixel back camera should offer picture-capturing capabilities of at least decent quality.

Buttons too

Both the power button and volume rocker (not pictured) are made from aluminium and depress nicely when pushed.
