If you want a touchscreen but need something bigger than a typical tablet or iPad, a 15-inch model like the HP ENVY x360 15t-ed000 is an excellent choice. It’s even reasonably priced and offers a lot of value for the money. This x360 ENVY can be moved around in any direction, thanks to the flexible yet sturdy hinges. Even better, it’s made in black and silver designs and comes with two processer choices: an AMD model (in some regions) and an Intel model.
One thing you’ll notice is the sleek design aesthetic that HP usually only reserves for its high-end premium laptops. The lowest-priced option weighs just 4.35-lbs and measures 14.09-inches x 9.06-inches x 0.74-inches (W x D x H). With most configurations, there is a 15.6-inch touch display with 1920 x 1080 resolution. Each panel delivers impressive color and levels of brightness and contrast. There is also an option for a 4K AMOLED UHD UWVA display with 400-nits and 3840 x 2160 resolution, but it does cost more.
Built-in components include an HP Wide Vision HD webcam with a shutter and dual array digital mic. You can expect a fast recharge time with the primary battery, as it can get up to around 50% in just 30 minutes. The battery that comes with the HP ENVY x360 15t-ed000 is a 3-cell 51-Wh Lithium-ion polymer.
The island-style backlit keyboard is full-sized and comes with a numeric keypad. Those who want to use this as a traditional laptop can use the 4.7 x 2.3-inch touchpad, which offers accurate input tracking. Expect a solid feel on the surface and when making clicks.
