Design

As far as laptop design is concerned, the Pavilion X360 is no different from the standard design. What’s different, however, is the 360° flip feature.

The body is all plastic save the top areas, which are made of metals. The screen is surrounded by standard size bezels which, I believe is not too tasty for a tablet, but in the laptop mode, the bezel is excellent.

The laptop weighs around 1.7kg, which I think is fairly lightweight for a laptop. But remember the Pavilion X360 is no ordinary laptop, it’s also a tablet and you’ll probably find the weight a little inconvenient when the tablet mode is on.

The keyboard is great, though a little too soft but works fine and you’ll enjoy working on it.

As you must have known, it’s a touchscreen laptop and the touchscreen is really amazing. It’s super fast and accurate. To seal an already good deal, the laptop comes with a pen.

Due to the accuracy of touches on the screen, the HP Pavilion be used for drawing or any graphic design.

While the 15.6-inch screen is pretty standard and acceptable as the most convenient screen size for either a work or play laptop, the 1366 x 768 resolution is quite disappointing. For a good deal as this device, one would actually expect the resolution to be more.

The audio output is impressive. It features Bang & Olufsen Audio with stereo speakers. The output is so high that you can conveniently crank up the volume and listen to music without earphones. Games and movies sound also come out fine.

Performance

Running on 7th generation Intel Core i5, one cannot say of the HP Pavilion X360 as a cutting-edge technology. I mean there are some other laptops in the same category sporting Intel core i7 as processors, and one could have expected that much from HP too but, disappointingly, the Pavilion X360 comes with a Core i5 processor.

The HP Pavilion X360 sports Intel Core i5-7200U CPU, 8GB RAM and a 1TB storage with a 5,400 rpm. It also features a Nvidia GeForce 940MX GPU, which is not really impressive but probably all you’ll ever need.

Overall, the performance of the laptop is satisfactory for the price.

The port selection includes an SD card slot, an HDMI, two USB 3.0, one USB 3.1, one Type-C and a 3.5mm combo jack.

Cons

  • Bezels are too thick for a typical tablet
