HP Pavilion x360 vs HP Envy x360
HP is a great laptop brand, and anything you go with from them is going to be a great purchase.
But is the HP Pavilion x360 or the HP Envy x360 the better option? Both are 2-in-1 convertible laptops, but which will stand up the test of time and help you accomplish the tasks you’re trying to finish?
Both feature a 360-degree hinge which allow the keyboard to face outward, like a tablet. That’s right, they are not a regular notebook. These laptops can convert into a tablet, a tent, a e-book, or even a comfy pillow, haha!
With a 360-degree hinge, both laptops offer the ability to switch between two display modes: a standard clamshell mode, and an additional tablet mode. Both offer nearly identical specifications, which includes 2GB of RAM, 32GB SSD, and an Intel Core m7 processor. As you can see, the overall build is similar, but the keyboard isn’t exactly the same. The HP ENVY x360 has slightly wider keys than the Pavilion x360.
Most importantly, both of these laptops have the exact same 15.6-inch Full HD display, although the HP ENVY x360 comes with a slightly higher resolution (235 ppi) than the Pavilion x360 (233 ppi). The Pavilion x360 features speakers for both audio and video, which should please the media consumption crowd. Both laptops can even transform into a display for a second monitor.
Both of these laptops have ports for all of your devices. There’s a USB 3.1 Type-C port for charging, a USB 3.0 port, HDMI port, headset jack, and a microSDXC card reader. The ENVY x360 also features an Ethernet port, and a Smart Card reader.
On the audio side, the Pavilion x360 boasts stereo speakers and an included webcam with dual microphones. The HP ENVY x360 offers a built-in microphone and a 3.5mm audio jack.
On the downside, both of these laptops feature Intel HD 520 graphics, which aren’t exactly high-end. Neither laptop has a dedicated GPU, but the Pavilion x360 comes with the Nvidia GeForce 940MX GPU. The HP ENVY x360 has the integrated Intel HD 520 graphics chip.
In terms of portability, these are both great options. But if you’re into the nitty gritty, the Pavilion is slightly more portable at 0.1 pounds lighter.
