HP’s Envy 8 Note is the Surface Mini tablet we never got

We never did get a Surface Mini from Microsoft, but that no longer matters as HP‘s latest Windows slate fills the void nicely.

The 8-inch HP Envy 8 Note runs Windows 10 and comes with full stylus support, firing up a note-taking app at the touch of a button for scribbling on the move.


With a svelte 7.7mm profile and a weight of just 0.36kg, the mini slate is business-ready, docking with the HP Envy Note Keyboard Folio to offer a physical typing experience.

It isn’t the most powerful tablet on the market, but its 1.44GHz quad-core Intel Atom x5-Z8300 chipset should be more than capable of handling Word documents, web browsing, and other tasks

The device has a 1080p full HD display, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, microSD support, built-in audio hardware from Bang & Olufsen, and a battery that lasts around six and a half hours.

The HP Envy 8 Note will be released on November 8, priced at $329 (£215) for the tablet alone or $429 (£281) with the keyboard dock.
