When we reviewed the HP Pavilion x360 14 some 13 months ago, we griped that its $699.99 price bought you only 128GB of solid-state storage. Not only has HP fixed that with a 256GB drive, but this year's model has a SIM card slot for LTE mobile broadband, keeping you connected when there's no Wi-Fi hotspot around. Those improvements aside, the Pavilion remains a likable choice among 14-inch convertible laptops. It's a little heavy and a little poky in performance tests compared to the Editors' Choice Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14, but the convenience of LTE will attract its fair share of buyers.

If you’re buying a laptop for LTE alone, this isn’t your only option. The Microsoft Surface Go 2 and Surface Pro X can provide it, among other pricier options, like Lenovo’s Flex 5G, but those are each more expensive than HP’s Pavilion x360. HP has the competition beat with a more affordable LTE-ready laptop, though that extra connectivity is really the only thing it has going for it.

The HP Pavilion x360 14 is a bit of a mixed bag, and that's no surprise. Any mid-range laptop is designed to offer a balance between perks and compromises. For the unit that HP sent me, that perk is 4G LTE, and it's absolutely wild that a $699 Intel-powered laptop has cellular connectivity.
