HP Envy X2
The HP Envy X2 nearly doubles the Surface Pro 7's battery life and has internet that works everywhere your smartphone does.
Really, the HP Envy X2 is a super-sized smartphone. It has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor that high-end smartphones have. That processor allows it to last for up to 19 hours of video away from a charger and connect to AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon's LTE network. HP says it lasts for 22 hours of productivity.
Every HP Envy X2 has the same hardware inside. You get 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage to hold your files. You can boost storage with a MicroSD card. There's a 5-megapixel front-facing camera on the front of this device and a 13-megapixel camera on the back. A USB Type-C port lets you connect your favorite wired accessories.
This Surface Pro alternative's 12.3-inch 1,920 x 1,280 display gives it the look of a tablet. A docking port on the bottom locks the included keyboard dock and kickstand into place for a notebook-like experience. You also get a USB Type-C adapter and a digital stylus with this Windows 2-in-1.
The Snapdragon processor doesn't prevent you from using Windows 10 the way that you always have. The Envy X2 works with apps you've downloaded from the Microsoft Store and programs you need from the internet. You must upgrade it from Windows 10 S to Windows 10 Pro to do that. For a limited time, that upgrade costs $49.99 in the Microsoft Store.
