The HP Envy x360 13 is small, stylish and light at just less than 3 pounds. The AMD Ryzen 5-4500U processor delivered performance beyond that of pricier Intel chips. It's a speedy little two-in-one that's ready for working from home or remote learning.

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
HP's Envy line has played second fiddle to the company's premium Spectre laptops. The new Envy x360 13 promises better performance than the equivalent Spectre at a lower price. The Envy is smaller than the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5, which is 0.82 inches thick and 3.3 pounds.

Reviewers from laptopmag have found the following[***]:
The HP Envy x360 13 is a 13-inch laptop that costs under $1,000. Its aluminum chassis gives it a high-end feel akin to the MacBook Air or other expensive all-metal laptops. The touchscreen responded quickly to my taps and swipes. The Envy doesn't have an IR camera, my preferred means of logging into Windows 10.

Pros[**]
  • Stylish all-aluminum chassis
  • Excellent performance for the price
  • Comfortable keyboard
Cons[**]
  • Lackluster battery life

Sentiment Score[*] 71%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The 2020 Envy x360 13 has a much smaller footprint than the 2019 version because of its reduced "chin" bezel. The metal chassis materials are similar to the ones used on the 2019 Spectre x 360 13 for a familiar texture and build quality. Active pens are supported and HP offers a wide variety of external mice, adapters, and bags.

Pros[**]
  • Slim bezels and lighter than last year's Envy x360
  • Comfortable keyboard and touchpad
  • Long battery life
Cons[**]
  • Key feedback could be firmer
  • Slow SD card reader

Sentiment Score[*] 66%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
With the HP Envy x360, HP now also offers a convertible with an AMD CPU in the 13-inch format. HP has not cut corners with the display and has equipped the convertible with a very bright multi-touch screen. In the direct comparison with the Dell Latitude 3390 and the Lenovo Yoga C930, our HP convertible wins clearly.

The HP Envy x360 13 combines above-average computing performance with a thin, light, and stylish chassis. The 13-inch Envy laptop is available in either a conventional clamshell chassis or the x360 model (13z-ay000) reviewed here. The laptop's touch-screen display measures 13.3 inches diagonally, a common screen size for ultraportables.

pcworld[7]

Sentiment Score[*] 81%
Reviewers from pcworld have found the following[***]:
The HP Envy x360 13 has an interesting display, but as with many lower-cost laptops, the brightness is sacrificed to save cost. Other than the new CPU it's largely like any other budget laptop, with an adequate configuration. A comparable laptop with top-firing speakers, such as premium HP Elite xlufed speakers, sounds louder.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek, lightweight design
  • Good battery life
  • Comfortable keyboard and touchpad
  • USB-C port with Power Delivery
Cons[**]
  • Loud speakers when gaming
  • Mediocre speakers
