Reviews for the HP Envy 15-u000na x360

60% HP Envy x360
Source: Digital Versus English Archive.org version
The HP Envy x360 is a 15.6" notebook and part-time contortionist, using its skills to adopt numerous positions. The HP x360 has a lot to offer: it's well-built, easy to switch to tablet mode and offers reasonable performance... Unfortunately, though, it's horribly let down by a pitiful screen, which limits its final score to just three stars.

50% HP Envy 15 x360 15-u000na review: 15in Windows laptop folds to become a big fat Windows tablet with a terrible display. But why?
Source: Tech Advisor English Archive.org version
HP's application of the swivelling screen idea on a laptop works well enough, even if overall build quality doesn't give anything like a premium feel while you're handling its big and bendy frame. The primary letdown for this model though is its low-grade touchscreen display, and its lousy image quality undermines final practicality to the point where we would suggest looking for more usable alternatives.

This smart looking machine is hampered by its size and weight – while both figures are fine when it comes to laptops, they're just too big to make a comfortable tablet in all but a handful of circumstances. Processing performance and battery life are good, but they're held back by a poor screen and dodgy ergonomics. Unless you really need a hybrid, you'd be better off buying a dedicated tablet or laptop.

Comment

Model: Just as the x360 name suggests, the HP Envy 15-u000na x360 is a foldable laptop that doubles up as a tablet. The market is practically saturated with hybrid and multipurpose form factor devices and there is nothing special about the HP Envy 15-u000na x360. Design-wise the laptop is good looking with an all silver finish but it is rather thick and heavy. The hinges are sturdy allowing the laptop screen to fold backwards utilizing the touch capability perfectly.

The 15.6 inch HD display with LED-backlit technology is good but is nothing to shout about. HP has integrated Windows 8.1 as the operating system but scaling of the user interfaces can cause issues especially in certain text display scenarios. Audio quality is good with 2 speakers driven with Beats Audio technology. Hardware on the HP Envy 15-u000na x360 is capable of everyday task with an Intel Core i5-4210U dual core processor, 8 GB 1600MHz DDR3L RAM and Intel HD graphics running the show.

There is a 1 TB hard drive for content which is nice. The HP Envy 15-u000na x360 comes with a full-size keyboard with backlight and a HP Control Zone Trackpad. Other features include Bluetooth 4.0, an SD card reader, two USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port and a HP TrueVision HD webcam. Battery life is decent with a 43.5 Wh 3-cell pack while the entire device weighs in at a whopping 2.4 kg.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


4210U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.7 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

HP: Founded in 1939, the US company is a major server and printer manufacturer and one of the leading IT companies in the world. Until 2015, the company was called Hewlett-Packard Company. After a split, the computer division was renamed HP Inc.

In 2023, HP had an approximate market share of 22% of global PC sales, making it number 2 after Lenovo.


53.33%: Such a poor rating is rare. There are only a few notebooks that were rated even worse. The rating websites do not give a purchase recommendation here.
