If you need a touch-capable 13-inches with good specs and decent battery life, the Envy x360 13 (13-ay1000) may be the device for you. However, there are a few things you need to know before making a purchase choice. First, there is the build quality. Although it looks stunning, the chassis of the device is not very stable. Moreover, it registers ghost clicks when you twist the lid. Then come the upgrade options. Or the lack thereof. Here, the memory is soldered to the motherboard, and we currently have information only about configurations of up to 16GB, which may be a limiting factor, should you work mainly on videos. On the other hand, HP Envy x360 13 (13-ay1000)’s touchscreen IPS panel has an exceptionally high maximum brightness, an excellent contrast ratio, and a pretty high color coverage (96% of sRGB). Ultimately, the high maximum brightness is ideal for outdoor use, however, because of the Sure View technology, the viewing angles are not great. Even when the setting is disabled. Moreover, the panel uses aggressive PWM for brightness adjustment.
