– Hi, I’m Matthew Buzzi with PCMag And this is the HP Envy
x360 13.3 inch 2-in-1, A bit of a mouthful But you could break that
all down pretty easily. This is the Envy line. It’s a convertible 360 system. And the 13.3 inch size is now
in a 16 by 10 aspect ratio. So a little more square. That actually helps relieve
you know, one of the issues That some people have
with keyboards this size Is that they build a little more cramped. So the 16 by 10 ratio
makes it a bit wider. This screen can come in
various configurations as well. You get a full HD equivalent. The resolutions are a bit different Because of the new aspect ratio. So, it’s not the resolutions
you may be used to But there’s an HD
equivalent, a QHD equivalent And then a 2.8 K OLED model, Which is probably pretty appealing. OLED, in our experience, always
looks really good in person. And so yeah, you have options
to kind of scale up and down Depending on your workflow
and what you need to do. Obviously, with most convertible systems, Pretty much all of them,
that’ll be a touch screen So you can flip it around,
use it as a tablet, Magnetically attach the stylus here And yeah, good for the road, Good for kind of various
workflows, I would say. Writing, drawing, taking
notes, whatever it is. If you take a train a lot,
you can get work done on this. On the note of taking it on the go, The OLED model weighs a little bit more Than the standard model

But they both weigh around three pounds. So pretty portable, pretty light As far as a real
professional laptop can go. So, on that note, inside,
powering your work, Is a Core i7 or Core i5, both 12th gen. They are U series Intel processors. So not the H series,
high level performance, The U series built for sort of thinner And lighter portable systems like this But still, in our experience, capable, Especially with the power and performance That we’ve generally seen Across Intel’s 12th gen processors. Now, combined with that, You can get up to one terabyte SSD And up to 16 gigabytes of memory. So all told pretty, pretty
powerful, pretty, pretty snappy For a professional system at this size. Obviously, we want to test it ourselves And see what kind of other features And point pains or you know, Things we especially like about the design Once we use it a bit more, But yeah, all the kind of
comforts and professional features And additions you’re used
to in a laptop like this. So, at this form factor,
we like what we see And the new sort of
aspect ratio is appealing. We’ll get back to you with
a full review at PCMag.com When units are available. So check back soon. Thank you.
