HP Pavilion x360 4 in 1 Laptop Pros and Cons
Today I look at the Pavilion x360 13 inch 4 in 1 laptop, which you can purchase here. This converts to a laptop, tablet, tent and stand for use in different situations.
The Pavillion x360 comes in multiple varieties. This is great because you can get the machine that will fit your need – whether it is a faster processor, more memory or larger hard drive. This one is the 6th generation Core i5 mobile processor with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB SSD.
The x360 is a laptop, tablet, tent and stand. With touchscreen capabilities, you can use this device your way.
Battery Life on the x360 is very good. Up to 8 hours production time and a couple days in standby.
The tablet and stand mode does keep the keyboard exposed. This means you might get more table residue, food, and liquids on the keyboard in these modes.
There is one HDMI port, SD card reader, 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 2.0 port and an audio combo jack. Notably missing is the new Type-C USB port.
The front-face camera is a wide-angle lens. You will be able to capture a group without issue.
The laptop’s hinges are not only sturdy and hold the screen in place but It doesn’t feel like I have to pry it open with super-strength.
With a 4.6 star review on BestBuy.com, many people are noting the backlit keyboard, battery life and speed of this 6th generation i5 processor are key features.

Overall 0 HP Pavilion x360 13
This is the HP Pavilion x360 4-in-1 laptop. With Windows 10 installed, this machine is perfect for any college student needing something more than a tablet. Yet, this machine can also be a tablet with it’s 360 flip and fold design.
I like it because it has some power inside. I can install a video editing program and with the Intel HD 520 Graphics chip with up to 4 GB RAM, I am not waiting forever for the video to process. This model has 8 GB RAM, but I can upgrade to 16. I can also upgrade the SSD, and wireless networking card.
It’s not set for a gaming laptop. Nonetheless, running the 3D Futuremark software will give us a good idea if you are even a part-time gamer. The graphics test scored low, with a 12-15 fps video. Of course, this also depends on which processor and RAM configuration you choose.
You can get the x360 in 11, 13 or 15 inch models.
