Reviews for the HP Pavilion x360 14-ek1000ng
Source: Trusted Reviews
The HP Pavilion x360 14 is well well-balanced compact 2-in-1 that should serve well anyone wanting a small general-purpose laptop that can also be used as a Windows tablet. It’s very well made and uses an up-to-date Intel Core i7 processor. I am slightly worried that it lacks any killer features to distinguish it from the competition and that the quality of the display and battery life are both rather mediocre. And remember the current price from HP (the only place you can currently buy it) is a discount from the regular price of £1,000. If you can live without the tablet form factor and touch screen, the HP Laptop 14 will fulfil the same basic function for considerably less money. At the other end of the price range, the stunning new Lenovo Yoga Book 9i has not one but two OLED touchscreens and can be bent into more positions than you’ll find in the Karma Sutra.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
