Hands On: HP Pavilion x360 Convertible m3-u003dx

 |  |  |  |  |  |  August 15, 2016

Are you in the market for a single mobile PC that can go from notebook to tablet? The HP Pavilion x360 Convertible m3-u003dx is a great choice for work, school, and everyday computing needs. What makes the x360 Convertible so useful is its portability and versatility.


Packing a 6th-gen Intel Core i5-6200U processor, it offers speedy computing for business and personal tasks, from working on spreadsheets, to surfing the web, to videoconferencing, to business presentations, to writing term papers, and more. It’s the perfect do-everything system.


The Pavilion x360 Convertible weighs just 3.48 lb, and combines the functionality of a full Windows 10 PC, a big-screen tablet, and a presentation laptop in one device. Thanks to its smartly designed 360º hinge, you can fold the display at just about any angle you desire.


It transforms quickly from a notebook to a tablet, and since the display can be flipped over to the back, it can also be used for sharing PowerPoint presentations or watching videos. The 13.3″ display is crystal clear and renders colors wonderfully, offering up full 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution, with bright WLED backlighting and multitouch capabilities.


Motion sensors automatically rotate the screen, and Windows 10 dynamically switches you between desktop and tablet modes, the former emphasising keyboard and trackpad inputs, and the latter emphasizing the touchscreen.


I really love the styling of this system too, with its subtly gold-tinged metallic finish, and hairline accents surrounding the trackpad which help distinguish it from other PCs. The machine is also whisper quiet with the 128GB SSD on board, and doesn’t get overly hot when on your lap. If you find yourself away from a power outlet, you can expect up to 8 hours battery life on a charge.


The system has a full-size keyboard with backlighting, a generously-sized multitouch trackpad, and great sound for its size, thanks to stereo speakers with B&O PLAY audio tech. There’s also a widescreen front-facing HD camera, along with dual-array digital microphones for clear video chats and conference calls. You’ll get a full array of ports too, including full-size USB 3.0 (2X), USB 2.0, HDMI, and headphone/microphone ports. Wireless connectivity includes 802.11ac and Bluetooth.


If you’re looking for a versatile computer that packs great functionality, value, and performance, the HP x360 Convertible is definitely worth a look. A well-equipped HP Pavilion x360 Convertible m3-u003dx sells for $799.99(USD), and is available now.
