Chassis, connectors, HP Envy x360 13-ag0007nf display
HP remains faithful to the design preview on its latest Envy x360 15 and Specter x360, namely smooth and matte surfaces, a structured chassis with projecting edges and the back of the base in tip. Here, the lid is covered with aluminum to serve the robustness and finishes are treated elsewhere for a perceived quality satisfactory. This AMD version inherits an all-black aesthetic (ashy silver) awakened only by small chrome details in the logo, hinges and touchpad. HP also announces a Damascus steel- like pattern on the back of the base to add some character to the machine, as well as a geometric design of the speaker grids above the keyboard.
With its beautiful fineness ( 14.9 mm ), its small weight ( 1.3 kg ) and its backlit keyboard , elegance is at the rendezvous while maintaining a certain sobriety that will please the greatest number.
Central to this type of convertible configuration, the screen is covered with a Gorilla Glass very resistant to shocks and promotes the impression of immersion through an edge-to-edge design. Its Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 px) provides a good display density to modulate the display or view in the best conditions your High Definition content. In addition, the brilliant surface (Gorilla Glass and touch requires) reveals very rich colors even if it makes difficult visibility in bright environment while the IPS panel opens the viewing angles.
To finish with the study of the case, the on-board connectivity is correct for this small format with a USB Type-C Gen1, two standard USB 3.1 ports and a headphone jack. The addition of a card reader is beneficial even if it is the microSD format. The right side of the ultrabook also hosts a fingerprint readerjudiciously placed for convertible use. The wireless modules are recent (Wifi AC and Bluetooth 4.2) and a webcam HD Infrared is on the menu.
Performance, autonomy of the HP Envy x360 13-ag0007nf
In its configuration, it is first the APU processor that we notice. Its architecture AMD Raven Ridge is not last generation but still manages with office automation. Here, it is the Ryzen 5 2500U Dual Core that works, supported by 8 GB of RAM and it provides what ensure a quality office operation. Tasks like video playback, surfing the web, or the Office suite are well supported, as are advanced editing missions (editing / editing, Photoshop / Premiere). In addition, the RAM is present in sufficient quantity for multitasking enthusiasts who will have all the ease necessary to multiply the tabs on the web and the active applications.
The graphic part is entrusted to the AMD Radeon Vega 8 integrated into the Raven Ridge processor, which holds the best place for the Intel UHD 620 CPU Kaby Lake Refresh. While the latter is similar to a GeForce MX110 in terms of performance, the Vega 8 will match a GeForce MX130 and allow a little game definition and average details (1366 x 768 px).
Another strength of this HP Envy x360 13-ag0007nf, the dedicated 256 GB NVMe PCIe SSD guarantees perfect system responsiveness. Overall quieter, more robust, and more energy efficient than a mechanical drive, it allows Windows to achieve a remarkable level of fluidity with short load times and latency-free operation. However, its storage capacity of 256 GB will not be able to contain all of your toy library. It will then turn to an external solution or online to keep available all your archives.
Side autonomy, the ultrabook should not break records with its AMD architecture and settle for 6 hours at best in mixed use.
