HP Envy x360 15-ew0053nf against the competition
HP Envy x360 15-ew0053nf is currently showing as promotion on HP France and offers an attractive configuration/price ratio for its category where it is the only one to offer a touchscreen convertible to true color Tablet (OLED) with high capacity SSD storage as well as a powerful processor.
HP Envy x360 15-ew0053nf chassis, connectors, display
With a midnight black aluminum design, anodized and sandblasted finish, this laptop has a sober, elegant yet original look as it opens 360° to transform into a tablet.
Multi-touch touch technology does complement the screen and thus one can interact with the system and software with a simple application of at least one finger on top and this pressure/gesture.
The screen is shiny because of its tactile aspect, which means colors are brighter but sensitive to reflections in bright environments (such as outdoors).
The screen also stands out against the DCI-P3 OLED spec thanks to a much more faithful than average color display with deep blacks, low latency, and significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles. Thanks to Full HD definition and 16:9 format, the screen is also suitable for High Definition content such as videos.
Equipped with Infrared technology, the webcam enables biometric authentication with facial recognition.
We appreciate having a shutter to hide it if necessary to maintain privacy.
A backlighting system is of course built into the chiclet keyboard, which is handy for better distinguishing the keys when ambient light is limited.
On the other hand, we note the absence of a numeric keypad for easier entering of numbers while this function is standard from 15 inches, which some won’t fail to regret.
In any case, the connectivity integrated into this hybrid laptop will appeal to most users as it consists of 2 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6E ax module (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, a handy HDMI video output to easily connect this versatile Ultrabook to a monitor or TV for example, its audio port without forgetting the 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) ensures transfers are made up to 10 times faster from USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is connected.
Performance, autonomy HP Envy x360 15-ew0053nf
The HP Envy x360 15-ew0053nf may appeal to those looking for a thin and light 15-inch hybrid laptop PC that can convert into a Tablet for general everyday use.
It has a large capacity SSD storage of 1 TB capable of holding lots of files and software.
As a bonus, SSDs offer several advantages over hard disks: greater shock resistance, quiet operation, lower energy consumption, or even higher speeds.
In practice, SSDs provide significantly better everyday fluidity and responsiveness than simple hard drives. Thanks to the SSD, start / stop, processing and launching software is much faster in particular, and we reach faster online gaming cards.
However, there is no dedicated graphics card installed. But thanks to the Intel Iris Xe graphics module, which is placed directly in the processor, you can watch photos and videos as well as play simple games.
The Iris Xe feeds into a low-power Intel Core i5-1240P Alder Lake hybrid processor but at 28W a higher TDP than the classic’s 15W, which results in better performance but impacts autonomy.
However, the Alder Lake-P hybrid Core i5-1240P combined with 16 GB of RAM provides good general performance that can satisfy many users.
Those looking to do contained multimedia work using multicore (and hence the 12 cores from Alder Lake-P) and RAM will find respectable advantages with these cores, such as photo editing or video conversion.
However, for frequent processing that consumes processor and/or graphics resources, it is better to choose a PC equipped with a low power processor and/or sufficient dedicated graphics card.
Lastly, regarding the autonomy of this versatile 2-in-1 hybrid Ultrabook, as easily portable as an Ultrabook due to its thinness and weight, expect about 6 hours of battery operation under light use.
