New HP Envy 2-1 Laptop

The HP Envy x360, which starts at $799.99, is a 2-in-1 convertible laptop that functions as both a computer and a tablet. The base model includes an AMD Ryzen 5 5500U processor, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, a touch-screen display, and a stylus. Upgrades like an SSD with 512 GB are available. This laptop has a full-size backlit keyboard, touchpad, and 720p webcam with a shutter that you can close with the tap of a button for security. While it handles standard business tasks and internet usage just fine, some reviewers say it also does a decent job with photo and video editing. Professional reviewers praise the Envy x360 for its long battery life and overall performance but call out the large size of the machine. For a 2-in-1, it’s on the heavy side at 4.42 pounds, making it bulky to hold as a tablet or carry around the house or the office. It does have two USB-A ports in addition to a USB-C port. Professional reviewers say the 720p webcam is fine but not great. They like the comfort of the keyboard and the added security of a fingerprint reader and webcam shutter. HP Envy x360: The Bottom Line If you’re looking for a 2-in-1 convertible laptop on a budget, the Envy x360 is a good choice. It provides you the functionality of a computer and a tablet. But if you plan to carry this computer around while using it, keep in mind how large and heavy it is. Something smaller and lighter, like a Dell XPS 13 2-in-1, would be easier to manage. However, it comes with a higher price tag.The HP Envy x360 places No. 11 in our Best Laptops of 2022 rating. It also places No. 2 in our Best 2-in-1 Laptops of 2022 rating. With its Ryzen processor, this convertible laptop’s performance is top-notch for the price tag. With a long battery life, it makes for an excellent choice for a convertible combo, though it is a bit heavy to carry around.
