A 15 inch that folds from all angles, that tells you? This is what the HP Pavilion x360 15-dq1006nf offers. At ease in office automation as in multimedia, this portable PC convertible into tablet thanks to a swivel screen brings together all the elements to serve productivity (Web, photo) and system responsiveness thanks to its 10th generation Quad Core i5, its storage Fast SSD and its dedicated Radeon 535 graphics card, even if the game is not in its strings. Added to this is a Full HD IPS borderless screen perfect for moviegoers as well as a few amenities such as a biometric reader or the backlit keyboard. On the other hand, its autonomy does not fly high and its chassis is fragile and bulky for a convertible.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Pavilion x360 15-dq1006nf
The HP Pavilion x360 15-dq1006nf essentially takes the appearance of its predecessor, the Pavilion x360 15-cr, which is not really a benchmark in terms of quality of finish or robustness. The case composed of polycarbonate and aluminum on the back of the cover mixes smooth and matt silver and black gray embellished with a brushed effect around the keyboard, all awakened by chrome keys. However, the convertible inherits small distinctive signs such as its protruding edges, its slightly refined side screen borders or its hinges with an original design. Another aesthetic detail that now adorns all the latest models at HP, the speaker grille above the keyboard opts for a graphic design.
The essence of this convertible PC lies in its convertible propensity characterized by its 360-degree rotatable configuration. The 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 at the back of the keyboard) via tent or easel mode.
You can get the most out of the screen. Moreover, lovers of beautiful images will be able to appreciate the faithful colors and the clear and homogeneous display provided by the IPS panel . Especially since the Full HD screen (1920 x 1080 px) has a high display density allowing you to make the most of your High Definition content and surrounds itself with side “micro-edges”. On the other hand, the brilliant treatment which is inseparable from the touch can slow down some. If it is judged overall more aesthetic than a matt slab, it does indeed cause many reflections in a light environment.
The chiclet keyboard (spaced keys) is backlit and has a numeric keypad.
Regarding connectivity, no change except the addition of a fingerprint reader that uses Windows Hello to open your session with a touch of your finger. The assortment is correct otherwise since it has a USB Type-C (Gen1) port, two standard USB 3.1 ports, an HDMI output and an SD card reader. The wireless modules are entrusted to Wifi AC and Bluetooth 4.2. An HD webcam with microphone is also on the menu as well as two speakers.
Performance, autonomy of the HP Pavilion x360 15-dq1006nf
Inside the Pavilion x360 15-dq1006nf, we find a heart powered by a 10th generation (2019) Comet Lake processor , the Core i5-10210U . Thus, the PC covers all of current use (Web browsing, Office processing, video) with a fairly advanced mastery in more demanding applications using multicore architecture (video editing, light Photoshop …). Attention, we are on low consumption and not powerful processors type -H. In fact, if you try CPU-intensive tasks, you will face more or less harmful latencies. With 8 GB of RAM behind, the system will not lose fluidity in multitasking for everyday use.
The presence of a dedicated AMD Radeon 535 graphics card should be emphasized even if only a few casual players will be able to satisfy themselves with it. In a few words, it is capable of launching most of the old and undemanding titles on the market on the condition of reverting to an HD definition (1366 x 768 px). Full HD gaming is limited or even impossible, as is launching popular titles.
Opposite, the storage is entrusted to an M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD of 256 GB , allowing to bring its share of fluidity to Windows 10 and to the overall execution of the programs, knowing that this is paid for in terms of capacity. If you count the space occupied by the system and by the programs, there is only about 200 GB of free space, enough to accommodate a small part of your toy library. For the rest, it will be necessary to opt for an external or online solution, or else add a second solution on the 2.5-inch bay inside, knowing that we are not sure that it is equipped.
Autonomy level, HP communicates over nearly 8 hours 30 in mixed use. That said, given the limited capacity of its battery (41 Whr), it is more realistic to expect a total of 6 hours in web browsing via Wifi. Note that the autonomy of a PC depends above all on your operation (screen brightness, active applications in the background, Windows update, etc.).
