Reviews for the HP Pavilion x360 13z Touch

A Low Cost 13-inch Hybrid Laptop
Source: Comp Reviews English
HP's Pavilion x360 13z Touch is a compromise system in many ways. It is designed as a hybrid laptop that can be used like a tablet but the size and weight make it difficult to do that often. Performance is certainly better than more compact and affordable options even from HP but it still falls short when compared to a similarly priced straight laptop.

Model:

The HP Pavilion x360 13z Touch and its special 360 degree hinge allows easy conversion from notebook to stand to tent and to tablet mode. While the interior is kept a common black, the exterior has an eye-catching red, though there is an option for a grey version. The Windows 8.1 laptop comes with a 13.3 inch diagonal HD WLED-backlit touch screen.

At the core of the system is an AMD quad-core A8-6410 processor with an AMD Radeon R5 graphics chip combination. Users have the option of selecting up to 8 GB DDRL3 RAM and 1 TB hard disk. This is certainly an impressive combination for those looking to be mobile. Other features include 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 2.0 port and a multi-format SD card reader. Audio on the HP Pavilion x360 13z Touch is good with its 2 speakers and Beats Audio technology. The 3.97 lb (1.8 kg) notebook also comes with a HP TrueVision HD webcam and HP Imagepad with multi-touch gesture support.

Battery life of the device is pretty impressive; up to 6 hours and 15 minutes with its 3-cell Lithium-Ion power source. This notebook will certainly perform and is eye catching.

AMD Radeon R5 (Kaveri): Integrated GPU on select AMD Kaveri APUs. Based on the GCN architecture with 256 - 384 shader units and a core clock up to 626 MHz.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.8 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
