Description

The latest HP Pavilion x360 borders right on the edge of a premium laptop, offering a strong processor, comfortable keyboard and a good pair of Bang & Olufsen speakers.

Design

The hood of the Pavilion x360 is slathered in a warm gold paint, and stamped at the center is a reflective HP logo. The edges of the hood and the deck curve outward and then inward as they meet each other, creating an hourglass design that surrounds the Pavilion x360. There’s also a Pavilion logo on the hinge of the laptop.

Opening the Pavilion x360 reveals a slightly more silver tone on the deck, a carved out section for the keyboard at the center, and a vent grill for the Bang & Olufsen speakers just above it. There’s also a fingerprint reader to the right of the touchpad. Thankfully, the bezels on the display are relatively slim.

Folding the Pavilion x360 into tent and then tablet mode reveals that the bottom and top parts don’t exactly line up. But the bottom is at least magnetic, so it stayed in one position nicely.

At 3.6 pounds and 12.7 x 8.8 x 0.8 inches, the Pavilion x360 is a bit of a chunker compared to the competition. The Acer Spin 3 comes in at 3.6 pounds and 13.2 x 9.1 x 0.8 inches, while the Huawei MateBook D weighs in at 3.4 pounds and 12.7 x 8.7 x 0.6 inches. The 13-inch alternative, the Asus ZenBook 13 UX333FA, checks in at 2.7 pounds and 11.9 x 7.4 x 0.7 inches.

Ports

There are a decent number of ports on the Pavilion x360, including one USB 3.0 port, a headphone jack, the power button and a security-lock slot, all on the left side.

Display

The Pavilion x360’s 14-inch, 1920 x 1080 display is a little on the dull side. And while the screen is relatively bright, its glossy texture makes it a little frustrating to look at.

Karen Gillian’s red top looked drained in the Jumanji: Next Level trailer on the Pavilion x360’s panel. When Gillian was kicking ass in what looked like a dining area, I could see most of the surrounding furnishings, but only at a certain angle, as there was significant glare. Despite that, the display is sharp enough that I spotted the stitching in Jack Black’s hat.

At 261 nits, the Pavilion x360’s panel is brighter than the category average (253 nits), as well as the Spin 3 (237 nits), the MateBook D (230 nits) and the ZenBook 13 (225 nits).

Keyboard and Touchpad

Typing on the Pavilion x360’s keyboard is immensely satisfying. The keys aren’t snappy, but they feel smooth and require a decent amount of force and travel before they hit the bottom.
