Reviews for the HP Pavilion x360 14-ba028ns

66% HP Pavilion x360 14 review: A dependable all-rounder that can be hard to recommend
Source: Tech2 English
The HP Pavilion is a safe, dependable but a boring device. It’s adequate. You can enjoy light gaming and movie watching and the battery life is good enough for light to moderately heavy work. The flexibility of the hinge also means that you can have some fun with it.

HP Pavilion 14 x360 (14-ba000) review – a 2-in-1 laptop with many capabilities
Source: Laptop Media English
Its touch-sensitive IPS display is an essential plus, with good contrast, comfortable viewing angles and modest color range. When combined with our profiles, the color accuracy improves significantly. It also has high-quality stereo sound. The laptop is very comfortable for carrying thanks to its thin profile and light weight. In addition, HP Pavilion x360 (14-inch) sports Corning Gorilla Glass which protects the machine from scratches without interfering with the sleek design of the laptop.

Comment

Model:

The HP Pavilion x360 14 is a 14-inch convertible powered by a Kaby-Lake processor. Its main competitors are, among others, convertibles such as the Lenovo Yoga 510-14IKB. The Pavilion’s case is mostly made of plastic, only the top is made of metal. With the exception of the display bezel, which is black, the laptop was clad in silver. The build quality is decent, as is the rigidity. However, it does lack some of the unique design of the Spectre series. Equipped with a chiclet-style keyboard, the Pavilion 14’s smooth keys offer fairly short travel and very distinct feedback. While typing, the keyboard flexes a little bit in the middle, but not disturbingly so. All in all, the keyboard is decent. The 11.5 x 6 cm (~4.5 x 2.4 in) large ClickPad is multitouch-capable and offers plenty of space for gestures. Its slippery surface is very pleasant to use, and its integrated buttons offer short travel and very clear feedback. The Pavilion 14’s touchscreen supports 10-point multitouch, the screen sensitivity is good enough. However, it does not get quite close to the Surface Book. The 14-inch 1920x1080 display features a very decent contrast ratio of 1200:1. Unfortunately, its maximum average brightness is only 237 nits and therefore far too low. The convertible is equipped with an IPS panel with respectable viewing angles, meaning that the display remained readable and usable at even the most acute angles. Outdoors, the device was all but usable due to its low maximum brightness and the highly reflective glass cover of the panel. The display showed PWM flickering at a very high frequency of 25000 Hz at brightness levels of 50% and below. Consequently, even sensitive users should remain safe from headaches or unusual eye strain.

In terms of performance, the 14-inch convertible is amply equipped for the usual office and internet application requirements. Thanks to a dedicated GPU, it is even capable of running games: At HD resolution (1366x768) and low to medium details, almost all games will run very well. Its ULV dual-core Core i5-7200U CPU (15W TDP) runs at a base clock speed of 2.5GHz, turbo boosts both cores up to 3.1GHz. The 256GB M.2 SSD is made by Samsung, and its transfer rates were decent. As for RAM, it has 8GB of DDR4-2133 SDRAM. The stereo speakers are located above the keyboard, hidden away behind a perforated cover. They were decent, but, as usual, lacked bass. The convertible also offers a decent selection of ports. In addition to three USB-3.1-Gen-1 ports (1x Type-C, 2x Type-A), it also offers HDMI video output and a rather fast SD-card reader. The Wi-Fi module (Intel Dual-Band Wireless-AC 3168) supports the fast AC standard in addition to 802.11a/b/g/n. The Pavilion x360 14-ba028ns is a cheaper alternative in the convertible market. It does what it is meant to do, but there are some aspects in which it is lacking - build quality is one of it.

NVIDIA GeForce 940MX: Mid-range laptop graphics card based on the Maxwell architecture. Compared to the older 940M, the MX now also supports GDDR5 graphics memory and maybe slightly faster clock speeds. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
