Reviews for the HP Pavilion x360 15-bk062sa
Source: Trusted Reviews
This is an intriguing laptop/tablet hybrid. Frankly, the appeal of such a large touchscreen device is rather lost on me, without there also being an included stylus, or something along those lines that actually makes the touchscreen useful. As it is, if feels like a glorified picture viewer. And without the touchscreen being useful, you’re much better off with a less reflective non-glass screen.

Model: The HP Pavilion x360 15-bk062sa is a hybrid laptop that allows users to use it seamlessly in four different modes. With its 360 degrees hinge, users are able to easily use the laptop in laptop mode, stand mode, tent mode and tablet mode. The laptop is designed and catered towards users who require a touchscreen laptop that can also turn into a tablet. The lid of the laptop is covered in metallic red and the keyboard area has a contrast of matte black finish and red color giving it an overall bold look. It has a decent build quality and the hinges hold the display securely in its place no matter which mode the laptop is switched to. The laptop comes pre-installed with Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64-bit edition operating system and there is an additional 1 month trial for new Microsoft Office 365 customers included.
It has a 2.3 GHz Intel Core i3-6100U processor, an Intel HD Graphics 520 graphic card, 8 GB DDR3L-1600 SDRAM and a 1 TB 5400rpm SATA hard disk. This puts it in the low-end range which is more suitable for light users. It also sports a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display with UWVA WLED backlight and multi-touch. The display has good viewing angles and the image quality is decent. However, it is reflective and has a low maximum brightness. The keyboard does not flex or wobble much when typing and the key action is properly defined. It has a good layout and there is even room to include a numpad. Besides that, the laptop also has a decent trackpad that allows users to glide their fingers easily across the surface and the tracking is accurate. The laptop comes with a Miracast compatible Intel 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 combo module and 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN. Additional features such as accelerometers, gyroscope and eCompass are also included in the laptop.
The interfaces and ports in the laptop include two USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port, an HDMI port, an RJ-45 port, a headphone/microphone combo audio jack and a multi-format SD media card reader. Its HP Truevision HD camera features a dual array digital microphone for clearer audio. The HP Pavilion x360 15-bk062sa weighs 2.3 kg and the battery can last up to 7:23 hours based on specific tests done by several Internet users. One of the drawbacks is that the laptop comes with a slow hard drive. It is far from the standard SSD included in most laptops and convertibles these days. Overall, the laptop’s performance is decent and it is value for money. The specifications put the laptop in the low budget category and the battery life of the laptop is sufficient for a day of work or a day of lectures without the need of charging the battery.
