Chassis, connectors, monitor on HP Envy x360 15-eu0036nf
With its midnight black aluminum design, anodised and sandblasted finish, this hybrid laptop, which can be opened 360 ° to turn it into a tablet and recharged to 50% in 45 minutes, has a sober, elegant and original look.
Its screen uses multi-touch tactile technology: by simply placing at least one finger on it, by movements / presses, you can interact with the system and the software.
A Corning Gorilla Glass protective layer covers it, which implies, like the tactile aspect, a glossy treatment, which has the effect of enhancing the colors but inducing sensitivity to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Some will appreciate being able to authenticate biometrically on this 2-in-1 laptop thanks to the integrated fingerprint reader via Windows Hello technology.
For privacy, HP equips the webcam with a shutter, which is remarkable, as well as being able to backlight the keys on the chiclet keyboard to better distinguish them in a reduced light environment.
The connection is also good, including 1 USB-C, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a monitor or TV for example, Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, an audio port or 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
Performance, autonomy for HP Envy x360 15-eu0036nf
The HP Envy x360 15-eu0036nf is a slim and lightweight High Definition 15-inch laptop that can be converted to a tablet designed for everyday versatile mobile use.
Many users will be happy with the overall performance provided by this 2-in-1 laptop because it is built around a low-power Ryzen 5 5500U Hexa Core Lucienne AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) processor connected to 16 GB of live memory.
In addition, this duo allows you to perform modest multimedia work using multicore and RAM, such as video conversion or photo editing.
Keep in mind, however, that too often to perform demanding processing in this area, it is better to opt for a PC that is equipped with a processor without low power and, if necessary, a suitably dedicated graphics card.
No dedicated graphics card on board actually, all the graphics are managed by the Radeon Vega 7 solution contained in the Ryzen 5 Hexa Core, enough to view photos and videos, but also to play light titles.
Storage is entrusted to an SSD, which significantly improves responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. It must be said that an SSD is silent, but also more robust, more energy efficient and much faster.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we achieve, for example, much faster start / stop, processing and launching applications, or even a faster arrival on the cards for online games.
A 512 GB SSD is offered here, a capacity similar to that offered by standard hard drives. However, if this proves to be insufficient at some point, you can always rely on an external storage device. Choosing a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution for fast transfers.
In terms of autonomy, it will interest many potential users as it is about 8 hours on battery with easy use. This is all the more significant because of its controlled weight and finesse, this 2-in-1 hybrid mobile computer is as easy to carry as an Ultrabook.
