HP Envy x360: Give the Gift of Productivity


We all want to be more productive, especially when it comes to work and school. That’s why I’m always keeping an eye out for practical gifts that will give my loved ones the tools to accomplish more. This year, I have my eye on the HP Envy x360 13-inch laptop—a device that would be perfect for both work and school.


Getting More Done with a 2-in-1

The HP Envy x360 is a 2-in-1 device that not only offers the functionality of a laptop but also that of a tablet. In fact, the 360 in its name refers to the fact that this device is convertible, thanks to hinges that allow you to flip its keyboard all the way back. Naturally, it also has a touch screen offering the complete tablet experience.


Premium Design

In addition to being convertible, the HP Envy x360 sports premium design features that make it a pleasure to use. For starters, the bezels on this device are so thin they’re almost non-existent. The Envy x360 is also slim and weighs a mere 2.87lbs, making it ultra portable for business users and students alike. At this weight, you might think that the device would feel flimsy but it feels sturdy with a stunning all-metal chassis.


One of my favourite design features of the HP Envy x360 is its ports. This device not only has a traditional USB 3.0 port, it also has a USB-C port. This means that it supports all of your peripherals, both new and old. Even better, the laptop has a dedicated charging port but will also charge via the USB-C port using a generic power adapter.


Power & Affordability

The most interesting thing about the HP Envy x360 is that it uses a new type of processor, the AMD Ryzen 5, that’s impressively powerful for its price point. This processor also features an integrated graphics card, which helps the device bring improved graphics to the ultra light category of laptops. It also features a battery that lasts up to 11 hours.


Putting It All Together

With its 2-in-1 premium design, versatile ports, and Ryzen processor with integrated graphics card, the HP Envy x360 makes it easy to be productive at work, school, and anywhere in between. Best of all, the Envy x360 comes at an unbeatable price point. All of this makes it the perfect holiday gift for a student, small business owner, or busy professional.
