HP Envy x360 15-ey0013nf chassis, connectors, screen
With a midnight black aluminum design, an anodized and sandblasted finish that can be flipped 360° to transform into a tablet, this 2-in-1 laptop has a sober, elegant and authentic look.
Its screen is adorned with multi-touch sensor technology, thanks to which you can interact with the system and software with simple pressures/gestures of at least one finger applied to it.
The treatment here is perfect, thanks to the tactile aspect that punches colors but includes sensitivity to reflections in bright environments (such as outdoors).
The display is also very good for displaying videos and more broadly High Definition content as it adopts a 16:9 format combined with a Full HD image. In addition, its horizontal and vertical viewing angles are important thanks to IPS technology, but colorimetry here is not as high-class as it is classic.
Above the display sits a webcam with infrared technology that enables biometric authentication with facial recognition via Windows Hello.
We appreciate more the presence of a shutter to protect privacy when not using the webcam.
The backlight system naturally equips the chiclet keyboard, which is practical to better distinguish the keys when the ambient light is reduced.
The point of the numeric keypad is to enter numbers more easily when this functionality is standard starting at 15 inches, which some will regret.
Rechargeable to 50% in 45 minutes, this multifunction hybrid notebook computer has 2 USB-C, Wi-Fi ax module (Newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.2 for wireless remote connections and communications, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect it to a monitor or TV, for example, 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatibility) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than the audio port. USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
Performance, HP Envy x360 15-ey0013nf autonomy
The HP Envy x360 15-ey0013nf is a 2-in-1 hybrid laptop that can be converted into a tablet for general-purpose mobile use.
Many users will appreciate the overall performance of the heart of this thin and light aluminum mobile computer, because it is based on 16 GB of RAM combined with an AMD Octo Core APU (Accelerated Generation Unit) processor, low consumption Ryzen 7 5700U Barcelo .
The latter has Radeon Vega 8, thanks to the graphics resolution you can view photos and videos, as well as enjoy light games.
However, there is no dedicated graphics card on board and as a result players will go their own way.
On the other hand, creative people who want to do modest multimedia work using RAM and multicore will be satisfied with the services provided by the main ones in this area, for example, photo editing or video conversion services.
On the storage side, HP made the logical choice of an SSD, which clearly boosts responsiveness and fluidity on a day-to-day basis compared to a hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, startups / shutdowns, especially the processing and launch of applications, are faster, and we get to the cards of online games faster.
An SSD is actually faster than a hard drive. It also offers other advantages such as greater durability, lower power consumption and silent operation.
In terms of capacity, a 512 GB SSD is offered, which meets the standard for hard drives.
Of course, if you need more space, you can use an external storage device such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to take advantage of fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this versatile 2-in-1 touchscreen laptop, which thanks to its controlled weight and thinness can be transformed into a tablet as easy to carry as an Ultrabook, bet on about 7 hours of battery life with light use.
