HP Envy X2: Why settle for Windows RT?

Ever since (and even before) the launch of Windows 8 late last year, Microsoft has been aggressively pushing their own ‘tablet’ computer, the Microsoft Surface, with the usual advantages of long battery life, a lightweight removable keyboard ‘for real work’, and it runs ‘Windows’.┬áHeck, you’d be forgiven for forgetting that Microsoft isn’t the only one making tablet hardware with Windows on it.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been using HP’s Envy X2; a ‘real’ Windows computer, powered by an Intel Atom Processor instead of the less powerful and completely different ARM processors.
