Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Envy x360 15-ed1001nf
It has an elegant, discreet and original design with its natural silver aluminum frame with anodized and sandblasted finish that can be opened at 360 ° to convert into a Tablet.
Thanks to the multi-touch touchscreen technology of the screen, you can interact with the OS and the software by gestures / pressures of at least one finger affixed to the screen. This is tactile and therefore brilliant: it gives punch to the colors but a certain sensitivity to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
The colorimetry of the screen is average but thanks to IPS technology, the viewing angles of the screen are important, both horizontally and vertically. As it adopts a precise Full HD definition and a 16 / 9th format, the screen is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos.
The webcam positioned above the screen can be closed, which is convenient for protecting your privacy.
Biometric recognition authentication is also possible via Windows Hello technology and the integrated fingerprint reader.
Of course, the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is very practical for discerning its keys in low ambient light.
In terms of connectivity, this versatile hybrid 2-in-1 Ultrabook is well equipped. There is indeed 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, wireless Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ), an HDMI video output useful for easily connecting a PC to a monitor or a TV for example, an audio port as well as 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
Too bad, however, that HP does not exploit the native support for Thunderbolt 4 by the Tiger Lake processor to offer this connection here.
Performance, battery life of the HP Envy x360 15-ed1001nf
The HP Envy x360 15-ed1001nf is a slim and light 15-inch High Definition laptop convertible into a Tablet designed for everyday versatile use on the go.
It will be of interest to those who wish to benefit from a very smooth operation and a large storage capacity because it has a 1 TB SSD on board.
The SSD competes in terms of capacity with hard disks while being silent, more energy efficient, more impact resistant and much faster.
As a result, we benefit from much better daily responsiveness than if we were dealing with a simple hard drive. The starts / stops are much faster thanks to the SSD as the treatments and launches of software / games. We also get faster on the maps of online games.
Because it is possible to run games that are not too demanding in terms of graphics resources on this versatile 2-in-1 Ultrabook thanks to the performance of the Intel Iris Xe solution (which we tested) clearly superior to those of the standard Intel UHD 620 .
Of course, the Intel Iris Xe also ensures you can watch photos and videos.
It is housed in the low power Intel Quad Core i7-1165G7 Tiger Lake processor. Coupled with the right amount of 16 GB RAM, this Core i7 Tiger Lake delivers good overall performance that may suit many users.
But not for those who need to do heavy CPU work on a regular and extensive basis. These users may prefer to switch to a PC based on a non-low consumption processor.
Finally with regard to the autonomy of this hybrid Ultrabook whose weight content and finesse facilitate transport, expect about 6 hours on battery in light use while waiting for more concrete tests.
