Need a high-performance and responsive touchscreen convertible? Then the HP Pavilion x360 14-dh1000nf is worth a look. Elegant and rather compact, this 14 inch which turns into a tablet thanks to a rotating screen is the perfect partner for office and modularity enthusiasts on a limited budget. With its solid Quad Core i7 low consumption, its good amount of RAM (8 GB) and its fast SSD storage with large capacity (512 GB), it shelters an ideal base to carry out any type of work with a little authorized creation (Photoshop, Lightroom light) within the limits of the low consumption processor. On the other hand, its format is a bit imposing for a convertible (20.5 mm thick, 1.6 kg).

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Pavilion x360 14-dh1000nf
The HP Pavilion x360 14-dh0018nf sports a neat but neat design, combining a smooth gray cover with a silver base, all awakened by chrome accents. The edges around the case are protruding for a geometric silhouette and the design of the hinges is original. Another aesthetic detail that adorns all the latest models at HP, the speaker grille above the keyboard opts for a graphic design.
The keyboard has a backlight, which is beneficial if you like to work in the dark.
In terms of measurements, the thickness is not particularly well optimized with 20 mm, as is the weight ( 1.59 kg ) which should weigh at arm’s length in tablet mode. We have already seen a thinner and lighter 14-inch ultrabook, but it is still suitable for mobile use.
Because the characteristic of this convertible ultrabook lies in its convertible propensity characterized by its 360-degree rotary configuration . The screen hinges allow it to fold from all angles. With a simple gesture, you can switch from conventional desktop use to tablet use (screen folded down behind the keyboard) via tent or easel mode.
Speaking of it, the screen is the central element in this type of convertible configuration and is surrounded here on the sides of substantially refined borders. The impression of immersion is all the more present since it rests on an IPS panel which is responsible for opening the viewing angles and faithfully reproducing the colors. Its Full HD definition (1920 x 1080 px) makes it possible to offer a vast space of display perfectly clear and to make the most of the content in High Definition while the touch offers another dimension to Windows 10 more fun and interactive but involves a bright screen that will reflect the ambient light.
Let’s finish with the chassis by reviewing the connections. The assortment is correct since it has a USB Type-C (Gen1) port, two standard USB 3.1 ports, an HDMI output and an SD card reader. The recent Wifi AC and Bluetooth 4.2 modules are also on the menu, as is the biometric reader for rapid authentication via Windows Hello.
Performance, battery life of the HP Pavilion x360 14-dh1000nf
Thanks to its balanced architecture, the HP Pavilion x360 14-dh1000nf is able to benefit a wide range of users. And for good reason, it is based on a 10th generation Quad Core i7-10510U low consumption processor supported by 8 GB of RAM . In fact, current use (web browsing, Office processing, video) is supported as a whole and more demanding applications requiring the support of multicore architecture (video editing, Photoshop, lightweight Lightroom …) benefit beautifully plump.
Storage is also precious since it is entrusted to a dedicated fast 512 GB SSD (NVMe PCIe). The system benefits directly compared to a configuration with mechanical hard drive because of the speed of loading offered by the SSD. This type of storage provides almost instantaneous on and off phases, transfers calculated in seconds or instant software launches where the mechanical support involved significant latencies. Note also that the SSD is inherently quieter, more robust and efficient than a hard drive. And if it is often tackled for its storage capacity which is too low, it is not the case here since it provides 512 GB, a total which remains below the standard of the hard disk but which still allows to accommodate a beautiful part of your toy library.
But as promising as this base is, do not expect to play on the Pavilion x360 14-dh1000nf. In the absence of a dedicated card, only the Intel UHD 620 chip is used and if its services are perfect in everyday use, it will not be able to support more demanding than old titles.
Let us conclude with a decisive point for this type of nomadic PC, autonomy. We can only remind you too much that it depends above all on the use you make of the machine (programs in the background, brightness …) but know that this HP Pavilion x360 14-dh1000nf should be around 7 hours in web browsing via Wifi. It’s about average.
