The HP SlateBook x2 looks a lot like your typical Netbook (pictures)

The HP SlateBook X2 can be used as a standalone tablet, but it was made for its included keyboard.

Together

The HP Slatebook X2 comes with a keyboard dock for $480 total. However, the keyboard is cramped and the screen has a nasty yellow-tint problem.

Double-wide

The X2's double-wide touch pad includes multitouch gesture support for pinch, zoom, and two-finger swipes.

Power on the rear

The power button sits on the tablet's back, but is surprisingly easy to find.

Pack it up

Like any Netbook -- which this is not...really -- the SlateBook is easily portable.

Connect

The keyboard connects to the bottom of the slate quite easily.

The other side

Unfortunately, the microSD slot is blocked when the tablet and keyboard are connected.

Yellow

Remember that yellow tint I mentioned? Well, here you can see it pretty clearly. On the left, the HP SlateBook x2. On the right, the Google Nexus 10. One of these reminds me of something. Guess which!
