Product Overview

HP ENVY x360 13 (13z-ay000) is a compact and lightweight 2-in-1 laptop powered by AMD Ryzen 5 or Ryzen 7 mobile processor. It is very similar to the clamshell ENVY 13 in terms of feature set, while adding a layer of flexibility.
For a more fashion-forward design, HP also markets the Spectre Folio 13, while the Spectre x360 13 adds more configurable features in a chassis that is roughly the same size. From the competition, Dell offers XPS 9310, and Lenovo has Yoga 6 13-inch.
HP's 2020 ENVY-series also includes 2-in-1s in the 15-inch class powered by AMD and Intel.

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
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.

Pros
  • Excellent performance
  • Comfortable keyboard

Cons
  • Not the fastest AMD processor

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following***:
The Envy x360 has a touch display, of course, being a 2-in-1, and it works as well as always. It also supports Microsoft's newest pen protocol, which promises longer battery life (up to 30 days) and a more natural tilt function. The jury is still out on the Ryzen 4000's efficiency, but it's looking like the chips so far don't beat Intel.

Pros
  • Sleek 2-in-1 design
  • Solid performance

Cons
  • Battery life isn’t great
  • No Thunderbolt 3

The Envy x360 13 runs Windows 10 Home and comes with a one-year warranty. It's the perfect laptop for those who want a premium notebook at an affordable price. The Envy played Dirt 3 at a smooth 78 frames per second with the graphics set to 1080p on Very High.

notebookcheck[4]

Sentiment Score 75%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
The Envy x360 feels closer to a Spectre x360 rather than the cheaper Pavilion x360. Key feedback is relatively firm with moderate clatter for a familiar Ultrabook typing experience as opposed to the special MagLev keys of the XPS 13 7390 2-in-1. Users will not have much to upgrade beyond the WLAN and M.2 SSD modules as RAM is soldered.

Pros
  • Sleek and lightweight design
  • High-quality aluminum construction
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • Keyboard positioning could be firmer

Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
The HP Envy x360 13 has a total of four speakers. Two of them are placed at the bottom and two more are installed above the keyboard. The sound can always be projected clearly, regardless of the surface the device stands on. Overall, the speakers are fairly usable and suited for video calls.

Pros
  • Matte IPS display
  • High-quality case
  • Good input devices
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • High temperatures under load
  • No Thunderbolt 3

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
The Envy x360 13 offers everything we expect from HP's Envy brand, including a solid blend of standard features, above-average computing performance, and a palatable price. This 2-in-1 convertible is among the vanguard of models equipped with AMD's latest 4th-generation Ryzen U-series processors. Its so-so display is inferior to many challengers in its crowded field.

Pros
  • Pleasant design

Reviewers from pcworld have found the following***:
The keyboard has a sensible layout, very defined two-level backlight, and good key travel. The trackpad supports Microsoft's Precision drivers, but the surface is one of the rougher ones we've fingered in some time. The laptop features a microSD slot that lets you easily add semi-permanent storage to the laptop.

Pros
  • Sleek design

  • Comfortable keyboard
Cons
  • No dedicated print screen button

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
The HP Envy x360 has an integrated Bang & Olufsen sound system and HP Audio Boost 2.0 technology. While bass tones aren't as hard-hitting as some may like, mid and high-range sounds are incredibly clean at any volume. The AMD processor means no Thunderbolt 3, but you can still take advantage of USB-C charging speeds.

Pros
  • Sleek, lightweight design

Cons
  • No Thunderbolt 3
