PROS

  • The Pavilion x360's hinge works well, the keyboard is comfortable, and the build quality is solid.
  • HP includes ports and connectivity features that aren't always found on portable 11-inch laptops.
  • This laptop is inexpensive and a good option for a Windows 8 novice.

CONS

  • The x360 is just too slow. Solid-state storage would've helped here.
  • The screen is dim and it has poor viewing angles.
  • The 5+ hour battery life is sufficient, but it is far behind competing convertible laptops in this price range.
HP's Pavilion x360 is a convertible laptop with an 11-inch, 1366 x 768 touch screen. The hybrid laptop's hinge rotates 360 degrees so you can use it as a tablet or a PC. HP prices the x360 at a much more affordable price than the original $1000+ Lenovo Yoga that popularized the 360-degree hinge. The x360 is available in Beats Audio red or silver with a variety of hardware configurations. HP also makes a 13-inch version.

HP has delivered a cheap 2-in-1 that's fast enough to be your primary PC. For $499, the Pavilion x360 11 offers a powerful Intel Core M processor, impressive audio and solid battery life in highly versatile convertible frame. However, the hot-running underside and not-so-hot colors on the display prevent this hybrid from being an Editors' Choice.

It’s certainly a distinctive-looking hybrid, and it feels like a high-quality piece of kit. Available in eye-popping red or a more subdued silver, the Pavilion X360’s soft-touch plastics have a pleasantly rubbery feel, and the sturdy base and lid are connected by a strong-feeling hinge.

HP's Pavilion x360 is a hybrid laptop for budget users. It can be easily turned into a tablet, and it has a good set of built-in features. It's screen isn't great, though, and you won't get too much performance and battery life out of it.

The Pavilion may flip into its tablet mode easily, but it’s an ergonomic disappointment: the 11.6in screen makes it wider than every other proper tablet, and its width and weight mean it’s too heavy for single-handed use.

In use we found that meant the x360 was a bit of a mixed bag. Simple tasks were slow: from setting up, to logging in, through to browsing and opening windows. It's all too sluggish, partly down to a 500GB HDD that, while ample in amount of storage, isn't swift like an SSD would have been.

The screen in particular has a budget feel, with poor off-axis viewing -- especially troublesome for a tablet meant to be viewed from many angles. But it's also less expensive than the otherwise similar 11-inch Yoga 2 from Lenovo.

For general use, the HP Pavilion x360 is perfectly functional – it's just annoyingly slow at times.

The HP Pavilion x360 was a real let down, mainly because of an appalling screen and a battery life much lower than average.

Despite its small size, the laptop is fairly well equipped with ports and connection options. There's an SDXC card reader, two USB ports and a USB3 port. Rather than a Gigabit Ethernet port, there's a slower 10/100 Ethernet port, and 802.11n Wi-Fi.
