HP Envy x360 15-eu0037nf against the competition
HP Envy x360 15-eu0037nf is currently listed as promotion at Darty And by Fnac. It faces very few competitors in its category.
Chassis, connector, screen of HP Envy x360 15-eu0037nf
With its thin and bright black aluminum design, anodized and sandblasted finish, this hybrid laptop has a sober and elegant, but also original appearance because it can be opened 360° to become a tablet.
The multi-touch tactile technology equips the screen and therefore, by simply placing at least one finger on the screen and pressing/gesturing, you can interact with the system and the software.
Covered with a Gorilla Glass protective layer, the screen is shiny and therefore subject to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors), but gives punch to the colors.
In any case, the screen is well suited for showing videos and more generally High Definition content thanks to its 16:9 format and Full HD definition. In addition, its sRGB and IPS specifications mean more faithful colors than average, but also significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically.
Above the screen sits a webcam with a convenient shutter to preserve the privacy of the user of this 2-in-1 laptop that can be recharged to 50% in 45 minutes.
You can authenticate yourself by fingerprint recognition using the integrated biometric reader using Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard can of course be backlit, which is practical for better distinguishing one’s keys in a dimly lit environment.
However, note the absence of a numeric keypad to facilitate the entry of numbers, while this functionality is standard from 15 inches.
This 2-in-1 laptop is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its USB-C, its Bluetooth 5.2 wireless modules and Wi-Fi axis (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, its audio port, its practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a monitor or a TV for example or its 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-eu0037nf
The HP Envy x360 15-eu0037nf is aimed at those looking for a thin and light High Definition 15-inch laptop that can be converted into a tablet for general mobile use.
It benefits from silent SSD storage, while being more energy efficient than a hard drive, more shock resistant and much faster.
Specifically, the SSD ensures much better fluidity and responsiveness in use than a simple hard drive. In addition, the SSD offers a large capacity of 1 TB, which competes with what the vast majority of hard drives offer.
Thanks to the SSD, start/stop is much faster, especially the processing and launch of software, and we get to the maps faster in online games.
Although there is no dedicated graphics card on board, you can still view photos and videos, but also play light titles thanks to the Radeon Vega 8 graphics solution integrated directly into the processor.
This is an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) low consumption Ryzen 7 5700U Octo Core Lucienne, which is here paired with 16GB of RAM to deliver good overall performance that can suit many users.
Those who do modest multimedia work using multicore and RAM will be able to be satisfied with this core, as in photo editing or video encoding.
On the other hand, it is better to choose a PC based on a non-low-power processor and/or a suitable dedicated graphics card if you plan to frequently perform processing that requires processor and/or graphics resources.
Finally, on the autonomy side, count on around 8 hours of battery life in light use for this versatile hybrid laptop, whose finesse and contained weight facilitate transport, which nomads will appreciate.
