Windows 8 has been the topic of many articles lately, most of them throwing critiques at the Microsoft product. If there’s one reason for people to stay away from Windows 8 slates, that’s got to be the price tag. Well, today we have a killer offer for you: HP Envy X2, which is a cheap Windows 8 slate with keyboard, price at just $525.


Initially, the product had a list price of $849 and now the price has gone down by a huge amount, being only $25 more than the current generation iPad and bringing extra storage AND a keyboard. Quite a bargain, right? Of course, there’s a catch to getting the special price. One needs to add the product to the cart and then use the coupon code 70847 at checkout to bring the price down from $599.99 to $524.99. The sale is for a limited time only.

For this money you get a portable computer, that can be used both as a tablet and as a laptop. There’s an Intel Atom Z2760 Clover Trail CPU inside, 2 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage and Windows 8 as the OS. I’m curious how much of those 64 GB is actually available, since Windows 8 devices are famous for not giving you enough storage. HP Envy X2 also gives you a 11.6 inch 1366 x 768 pixel touchscreen, dual cameras and two batteries: one in the tablet and one in the keyboard dock, for a total of 12 hours of life.
