Reviews for the HP Envy x360 15-aq005na

The Dell Envy x360 is an unusual laptop, as a convertible that’s slightly too large and heavy to be considered ultra-portable. Fairly lengthy battery life, an aluminium frame and populist core specs help bring it back to the mainstream, though. Regardless, there are a few too many little issues to consider the Envy x360 a true hit. A plastic-surface trackpad, slight lack of keyboard definition, limited display brightness and an ever-so-slightly distracting fan are not huge problems by themselves. But together they drag the machine down, highlighted by our recent experiences with the more solid, more affordable Envy 15.

Who needs a 15.6-inch convertible laptop? Not everyone, but there must be a good few potential buyers given this isn't HP's first go at the design. What you need to bear in mind, though, is that aside from a bonus HDD, this is a blown-up take on the more common smaller hybrids. It doesn't have desktop-grade power and, while the screen quality is decent, colour isn't as punchy as the kind of 13-inch laptop you might buy at the price.

We’re glad HP is making this sort of laptop, even though it won’t suit all. What the Envy x360 excels at is something quite simple: being a home-based laptop that looks nice and isn’t super-heavy.

Intel Iris Graphics 540: Integrated GPU (GT3e) with 48 EUs and dedicated eDRAM memory found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W series).
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
6560U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated Iris Graphics 540 GPU with eDRAM memory and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
