15.6-inch 2-in-1s are becoming more common, thanks to brands like HP. This particular model is available in black and has a 360-degree hinge. It allows you to turn the device around and use it as a laptop, tablet, “tent,” and so forth. Artists can also take advantage of the 360-hinge mechanism of the HP ENVY x360 15z-ee000. It gives them the perfect angles to draw detailed sketches.
It’s also powerful considering the specs it has. It’s an AMD machine with a Ryzen 5 processor and dedicated Radeon graphics. The 15.6-inch display features edge-to-edge glass and offers a good touchscreen experience. It’s an FHD IPS / micro-edge display available with a 1920 x 1080 resolution and 250-nits or 400-nits, depending on the exact model. Some ENVY x360 also have AMD’s Vari Bright technology. This technology lowers power consumption and prolongs battery life by dynamically adjusting the screen’s brightness depending on the content currently being displayed.
While it’s an excellent choice for any creative professional, the HP ENVY x360 15z-ee000 makes a good 2-in-1 for anybody who wants the convenience of a convertible laptop. It can be used for some light to medium gaming without any crashing or lagging.
Expect good GPU performance with the AMD Radeon integrated graphics, which work with the AMD Ryzen 5 or 7 processor, which have 6-cores or 8-cores. The Ryzen 5 4500U CPU can get up to 4.0-GHz, and the Ryzen 7 4700U can get up to 4.2-GHz. Benchmark test scores put the performance at a higher level than what many would expect of this hardware.
