Against the competition HP Envy x360 15-ew0072nf
The HP Envy x360 15-ew0072nf is currently on display Rise in E. Leclerc and is positioned as one of the best processors in its category and one of the only processors to offer a touchscreen that can be converted into a tablet.
HP Envy x360 15-ew0072nf chassis, connectors, screen
This versatile hybrid laptop, which opens 360° to transform into a tablet, has a discreet, elegant and original look with a thin and light aluminum natural silver design.
Multi-touch touch technology equips the screen and therefore, simply by applying at least one finger to it and through pressures/gestures, you can interact with the system and software.
In terms of touch, the screen is bright and vivid in color, but sensitive to reflections in bright environments (such as outdoors).
the screen is also great for displaying videos and more high-definition content thanks to its 16:9 format and Full HD resolution. However, its colorimetry is standard, inferior to high-end IPS or OLED panels.
The webcam is equipped with Infrared technology that enables biometric authentication with facial recognition.
We appreciate that a shutter is provided to protect privacy when not using the webcam.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is practical to better distinguish its keys when the ambient light is low.
However, we note the lack of a numeric keypad, which is a shame as this functionality is standard on the 15-inch to make number entry easier.
This versatile 2-in-1 Ultrabook is equipped with good connectivity with 2 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6E ax modules (Newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) for remote wireless connection and connection, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a monitor or TV, for example an audio port without forgetting 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatibility), guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0. If USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
Performance, HP Envy x360 15-ew0072nf autonomy
The HP Envy x360 15-ew0072nf is a thin and light hybrid 15-inch laptop designed for everyday general purpose use.
Good overall performance, including multimedia content that uses multicore and RAM, such as photo editing or video encoding, is provided by this 2-in-1 laptop. Since it is built around a 12-hybrid-core Intel Alder Lake Core i5-1240P processor, it is a low-power model with a TDP of 28 W compared to the usual 15 W, which means better performance, but more power consumption, which affects autonomy. .
The Core i5 Alder Lake-P is paired here with a substantial 16 GB of RAM, as well as SSD storage, which is more energy-efficient than a hard drive, but also more robust, quieter and faster.
An SSD actually provides better responsiveness and fluidity than a simple hard drive on a day-to-day basis. Thanks to the SSD, startups / shutdowns, especially software development and launch, are faster and we get to the cards of online games faster.
Although there is no dedicated graphics card on board, you can actually view photos and videos, as well as play modest titles. This is thanks to the Intel Iris Xe graphics solution embedded directly in the Core i5.
Of course, if the 512GB SSD – a capacity similar to the standard of hard drives – was insufficient, we had to use an external storage device such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 / Thunderbolt device to take advantage of it. fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this all-in-one hybrid 2-in-1 Ultrabook, which combines elegance and weight for easy transport, expect more specific tests of around 6 hours of battery life in light use.
