The HP Envy X360: Inexpensive yet Power-Packed

If you are looking for a convertible laptop for less than $1000, the HP Envy 360x is a great buy. The AMD Ryzen 5 4500U processor performs as well as the i7 while the Radeon Vega 8 Graphics outdoes the HP integrated graphics unit.

This makes the laptop suitable for tasks like Full-HD video editing, photo editing, and for students learning to program.

Though the 8GB RAM means you will have to limit background programs and browser tabs or the laptop will slow down.

It isn’t as compact as the Spectre but that is because you get a bigger 15.6″ Full-HD display with color production and brightness at par with the Spectre.

Long battery life is another strength of the Envy 360x as it can run between 7-9hrs depending on the tasks performed

On the downsides, it has a lower storage space at 256GB which will need to be upgraded sooner or later.

The bezels are slightly bigger and since this a lower costing laptop, the lack of Thunderbolt 3 ports comes as no surprise.
