do not like it

  • Size, weight are awkward for tablet use

Also, while it may have come with Windows 10, it Meets requirements for free upgrade to Windows 11. Its support for the new OS and Android apps and its advanced tablet interface is going to be a great way to take full advantage of the two-in-one. However, its 15.6-inch size and 4.1-pound weight make it awkward to use as a handheld tablet. Still, it’s fine on a table and you can always use it in tent or stand mode as well. The Envy x360 15 also has pen support, and attaches to the body magnetically. However, not all configurations come with a pen (mine didn’t).
