HP ENVY x360 15 AMD (2020) Review Rundown
Unlike the ENVY 15, the ENVY x360 15 sports a numerical keyboard, which further accentuate the level of flexibility that HP seeks to offer. Its AMD Ryzen 7 4700U CPU benchmarks higher than Intel Core i7-10750H while being more efficient. HP has surreptitiously swapped out the Intel 8265 module found on the Intel variant of the Envy x360 15 for the slower RealTek B822 WLAN module.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.
Price Comparison (incl. referral links)
HP delivers a keyboard suitable for everyday operation that is also suited for regular typing tasks. The flat and smooth keys of the illuminated chiclet keyboard offer a short stroke and a clear pressure point. With the Envy x360 15, HP delivers a 15.6-inch convertible that offers sufficient computing performance for office and Internet applications.
The new Envy X360 15 still weighs almost as much as last year's Envy x360 15 for a very dense impression. Servicing the notebook is made very difficult not only by the multiple screw types but also by the tightly latched edges and corners. Average read rate from the spring-loaded card reader is typical for a mainstream notebook at just under 80 MB/s with our Toshiba Exceria Pro SDXC UHS-II test card.
The HP Envy x360 15z is a 15.6-inch convertible with enough oomph for the most common usage scenarios. Its integrated GPU is not averse to casual gaming either. At the time of writing, our review unit cost $750 on HP's website, and the device itself was available in various hardware configurations.
