1. HP PAVILION X360
The 14-inch, 1920 x 1080 display on the Pavilion x360 is a tad drab. And, while the screen is brilliant, the glossy texture makes it a little difficult to look at.
Karen Gillian’s red top seemed drained on the Pavilion x360’s panel in the Jumanji: Next Level promo. I could see much of the surrounding furnishings when Gillian was kicking ass in what appeared to be a dining area, but only from a certain angle due to strong brightness. Regardless, the image is clear enough that I could see the stitching in Jack Black’s cap.
The Pavilion x360 display covered 61 percent of the sRGB color spectrum, which is lower than the 76 percent mainstream laptop average, as well as the Spin 3 (69 percent), MateBook D (73 percent), and ZenBook 13 (73 percent) (115 percent ).
The Pavilion x360’s panel, at 261 nits, outshines the category average (253 nits), as well as the Spin 3 (237 nits), MateBook D (230 nits), and ZenBook 13 (230 nits) (225 nits).
Although the 720p camera on the Pavilion x360 isn’t as grainy as most webcams, it still failed to capture the detail in my hair and beard. My shirts red, white, and blue were captured by the camera, but not the pink, green, or yellow. Not to mention that it succumbed to the flare of the ceiling lights, resulting in a half-washed-out ceiling.
Under duress, the Pavilion x360 worked admirably. The warmest underside got to 91 degrees Fahrenheit when it streamed a 15-minute, 1080p film, which is comfortably inside our 95-degree comfort zone. The keyboard’s and touchpad’s center points were 85 and 80 degrees, respectively.

2. HP ENVY X360 15(2021)
In your hands, you have a powerful performance that is perfectly balanced
In terms of pricing, performance, and specs, the HP Envy x360 15 (2021) falls between the lower-end HP Pavilion x360 and the higher-end HP Spectre x360 2-in-1 laptops, but it isn’t a slacker. Even if it isn’t the greatest pick for everyone, the HP Envy x360 15 (2021) is one of the best 2-in-1 laptops of the year. It’s also one of the best laptops of 2022.
The HP Envy x360 15 (2021) is well-built, although the design isn’t very eye-catching. It is, after all, an HP laptop, but it appears to be in good condition. The touchscreen, on the other hand, is excellent, even if it isn’t a fancy 4K OLED. The HP Envy x360 15 (2021) looks amazing indoors and out, with up to 400 nits of brightness, in a coffee shop or – we assume – on a job site.
In tablet mode, the Envy x360 15 isn’t the most natural experience you can have with a 2-in-1. Some hybrid laptops let you turn the screen to feel like you’re holding an iPad running Windows 10, but the HP Envy x360 15 (2021) isn’t one of them.
It won’t let you forget what it is, and while Windows 10 tablet mode worked flawlessly, the laptop’s weight and visible thickness when used as a tablet may deter some users.
However, the HP Envy x360 15 truly shines in terms of performance, taking full advantage of its powerful Zen 3 Ryzen CPU and sweeping the 2-in-1 crown in practically all of our benchmark tests.
In several circumstances, the Radeon GPU-equipped Envy x360 15 surpasses its Intel Iris Xe-based competitors by a significant margin. Where things were tighter, the Envy x360 15 still won, and while its battery life isn’t the best we’ve seen recently, it’s certainly near the top of the list, if not on the podium.
So, the HP Envy x360 15 (2021) is already one of the greatest HP laptops we’ve seen this year, but when you consider the incredible price-to-performance ratio, you’ve got one of the best 2-in-1 laptop values on the market.

3. HP SPECTRE X360(2021)
This HP 2-in-1 combines beauty and power in a sleek form that’s ideal for both work and pleasure
It’s tough to improve on a winning formula, but HP has done just that with the Spectre x360 (2021). Now that it has Intel’s Evo certification, it increases the bar for what to anticipate from these laptops.
To meet Intel’s requirements, HP had to increase not only the laptop’s performance but also its design and battery life. In our PCMark 10 battery life test, it lasted nearly 13 hours. This makes the HP Spectre x360 (2021) one of the best laptops on the market right now, improving on the HP Spectre x360 model from last year.
Whether you’re concerned about battery life and want something that can keep up with Chromebooks and MacBooks throughout long workdays, need something portable to carry with you on the road, or want something powerful, the HP will be able to satisfy almost any user, with the exception of extreme gamers.
Having said that, the HP Spectre x360 makes certain mistakes. It’s a little cumbersome in tablet mode because it’s a little too big to use comfortably. If that’s a must-have feature for you, and you want a laptop that’s as simple to use no matter what form factor it’s in, a Surface Pro 7 or iPad, which are thin and light tablets that can be used with keyboards, would be a better option.
The fans also become pretty noisy when you’re using the laptop — and, on rare occasions, even when you’re not. Even when the HP Spectre x360 (2021) was closed, we heard the fans kick a few times. It’s the one part of the HP Spectre x360 (2021)’s design that doesn’t feel entirely premium.
Apart from those flaws, this is a highly capable laptop that’s ideal for everyday use, including work. It is, however, expensive, with starting costs of $1,349/£1,199/AU$3,339 (starting configurations vary by market). However, if you have the financial means, you will not be dissatisfied.
For anyone seeking to improve their mobile workstation, the HP Spectre x360 14 is a great long-term investment. On the HP official store site, you may configure the laptop’s configuration for the best balance of power, performance, and design.
