If you\u2019re looking for the best netbook and the best laptop for your kid, there\u2019s a bunch off the top we could suggest, but one in particular is the HP Pavilion X2 Detachable Laptop Tablet. When docked to the keyboard, it\u2019s a laptop\u2014but undocked you can take advantage of its IPS touchscreen. You\u2019re getting the best of both worlds!\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - HP Pavilion X2 Detachable\r\nFor those loving the 2-in-1 design, and looking to give their kids their first laptop, the HP Pavilion X2 Detachable is ideal. It goes from being a competent laptop, to a competent tablet in one swift movement.\r\n\r\nPower & Performance\r\nThe hardware, however, is nothing to write home about. It was fitted with an Intel Atom x5-Z8350, a 4-core CPU clocking in at 1.44 GHz with Turbo up to 1.92 GHz, but backed by only 2GB of RAM. The HP Spectre X360 13 8th Gen\u2019s Intel Core i5 is substantially better, by far, but the HP Pavilion runs in 1280x800, so there\u2019s nothing terribly taxing on the system.\r\nBattery\r\nCompared to the Lenovo 300E, the HP Pavilion X2 Detachable has a slightly better battery by 1.5 hours, lasting up to 9.5 hours. With a few adjustments to power settings, you\u2019ll constantly hit that mark.\r\nPorts & Expandability\r\nYou\u2019ll find a hodgepodge of ports along the sides, both modern and current gen ports. Along the right side is a USB 2.0, USB Type C, mini HDMI, a microSD card slot for expanding on the small solid state drive, and an audio jack on the left side. There\u2019s also an HP TrueVision HD webcam which offers surprisingly good colors.\r\nBuild Quality\r\nPlastic has always been a hallmark of cheaper laptops, and the HP Pavilion X2 Detachable isn\u2019t any different. There\u2019s a slight amount of flex, but otherwise fine. However, the keyboard is a bit small. It\u2019ll definitely fit better in the hands of kids. The HP Chromebook 14 is slightly tougher, but still plastic.\r\nValue\r\nFor an adult, the HP Pavilion X2 Detachable will be lost on you. Its performance simply doesn\u2019t hit what you\u2019d want from it. But for a kid? Absolutely! In fact, it\u2019s a great option for your child\u2019s first laptop. And the best part is its price\u2014so you and your kid ends up being happy campers.\r\nHP Pavilion X2 Detachable Wrap Up\r\nThe HP Pavilion X2 Detachable Laptop Tablet is definitely showing its age, but there\u2019s still some juice value here. If your kids have been bugging you for a laptop, this is a great option. It has a long battery life, solid built quality, but tiny keyboard. For kids, that\u2019s non-issue.
