Let's face it: not everyone has or wishes to spend $1,500 on an ultraportable or tablet hybrid, so the $699 HP Split x2 has broad appeal. Better yet, HP didn't cut corners in places where it counts: you get a full Intel Core CPU, a 128 gig SSD and a decent, though not stellar 13.3" touchscreen. The Split x2 is a 13.3" full Windows 8 64 bit tablet with a keyboard dock that transforms it into an Ultrabook. It's available with 3rd and 4th gen Intel Core i3 and i5 Y Series CPUs, 4 or 8 gigs of RAM and the included keyboard dock has USB ports, HDMI and a secondary battery. Definitely a convertible worth looking at if your budget is tight.
