Reviews for the HP Envy x360 15-aq055na

60% A slight upgrade to last year’s model
Source: It Pro English
The new HP Envy x360 fails to make much of an impression when you factor in the price. Yes, you get fantastic performance, but its poor display, mediocre battery life and problematic keyboard make it difficult to recommend otherwise. It’s also fairly bulky as convertible laptops go, which rather defeats the point of it being a 2-in-1 device in the first place.

When it all costs £850, though, the new HP Envy x360 fails to make much of an impression. Yes, you get fantastic performance, but its poor display, mediocre battery life and problematic keyboard make it difficult to recommend otherwise. It’s also fairly bulky as convertible laptops go, which rather defeats the point of it being a 2-in-1 device in the first place.

Comment

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.

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


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.


15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.2 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


HP: The Hewlett-Packard Company, founded 1935, commonly referred to as HP, is a technology corporation headquartered in California, United States. HP specializes in developing and manufacturing computing, storage, and networking hardware, software and services. Major product lines include personal computing devices, enterprise servers, related storage devices, as well as a diverse range of printers and other imaging products. Other product lines, including electronic test equipment and systems, medical electronic equipment, solid state components and instrumentation for chemical analysis. HP posted US $91.7 billion in annual revenue in 2006, making it the world's largest technology vendor in terms of sales. In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. 

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

 

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
