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.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

A8-6410: Quad-core APU for entry-level devices and sub-notebooks, codenamed Beema. Based on the Puma+ architecture and integrates a Radeon R5 GPU.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.8 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
