HP Pavilion x360 15-bk062sa

 

This is a low-cost, entry-level laptop aimed at first-time buyers or students, just like with the HP Pavilion 15-au072sa. However, it takes a slightly different tack, adding a touchscreen and a 360-degree hinge to turn it into a giant convertible...

Having a 15.6-inch touchscreen seems a little pointless, but this is otherwise a decent entry-level laptop.

HP Pavilion x360 (2015) review

 

An affordable 2-in-1 laptop for everyone

Great specs for an affordable price ; Vastly improved hinge mechanism ; Potentially 8 hours of battery life

Still bulky and heavy ; Thin viewing angles

If you want a 2-in-1 laptop at an affordable price? HP has introduced a solid 11.6-inch option with the HP Pavilion x360.

HP Pavilion x360 15-Inch Review

 

There are plenty of affordable 2-in-1s to choose from these days, and some of them have managed to deliver experiences close to what you get with premium devices. That's not the case, however, with the 15-inch HP Pavilion x360 with 6th-generation Intel...

HP Pavilion x360 15t X3W72AV Convertible Review

 

Flip Flop. HP now offers Kaby Lake processors in their 15-inch Pavilion x360 convertibles. In addition to the upgraded 7th generation Intel chips, a few other changes have been made. Are these improvements enough to make us flip over the Pavilion, or...

solid, firm chassis ; responsive keyboard ; full sound from speakers (when using audio software) ; solid compute performance ; low power consumption ; lots of ports/connectivity ; chassis color options are unique

very slow hard drive ; trackpad feels cheap ; paint prone to scratches and nicks ; screen is dim and washed out ; glossy finish too reflective ; disappointing battery life ; no USB-C ; device is too large and heavy for long tablet use

The updated HP Pavilion x360 15t is a mixed bag; while there are definite improvements in the keyboard and processor, there are compromises in the display and battery life. The Pavilion makes for a good office device, as the Kaby Lake Core i5 is more...

HP Pavilion x360 hybrid tablet/laptop

 

HP's Pavilion x360 offers plenty of style and functionality at a budget price

Strong and vibrant design ; Good built-in features ; Comfortable keyboard

Battery life is short ; Screen can be hard to view in tablet mode ; Feels heavy as a tablet

HP Pavilion x360 15-bk102ng Convertible Review

 

Dark Display. This HP convertible is on the market for 600 Euros (~$632). It offers a combination of a Kaby Lake processor, an IPS screen and a 1 TB HDD. It might be an attractive option for some users, as it supports active input styli (Active Stylus).

IPS screen, full-HD resolution, ample mass storage, support for Active Stylus

dim screen, noisy fan at high load, average battery life, no Type-C USB

HP is offering a 15.6-inch convertible with sufficient performance for most tasks. The laptop runs quietly while idle and barely heats up. A 1 TB HDD offers extensive storage space and the user can swap it out for an SSD (after opening the case). A...

HP Pavilion 15-bk001ng x360 Notebook Review

 

Keyboard fail. HP sends a 15-inch convertible from its x360 Pavilion lineup into the race. The competition has grown quite a bit in the past months - even if a high-rider is not among them, all opponents are at least relatively good. Can the Pavilion...

battery life, always cool, decent speakers, high-contrast screen

with too low brightness, unresponsive keyboard

HP offers an almost rounded package with its x360. The buyer gets a convertible that stands out with good battery life, pleasing sound output, and decent performance. Intel's Core i5 6200U is no longer a distinguishing feature since it has become the...
