Reviews for the HP Envy x360 15-ar002na

70% HP Envy x360 review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
While it isn't the most powerful, nor the lightest convertible notebook on the market, the Envy x360 does just enough to differentiate itself from the Pavilion x360. This is largely down to the M.2 SSD, which helps pick up the performance shortfall caused by the processor.
