HP Spectre x360 13.5

MSRP $1,700.00

“The HP Spectre x360 13.5 has everything you could want in a high-end Windows convertible 2-in-1.”

Pros

  • Elegant aesthetic
  • Excellent productivity performance
  • Rock-solid build
  • Superior keyboard and touchpad
  • Stunning OLED display
  • Surprisingly good battery life

Cons

  • Creativity performance is lacking
  • Slightly expensive

The HP Spectre x360 has long been some of the best laptops over the years, especially in the category of convertible 2-in-1.

Last year’s 14-inch model, which was excellent, has now been rebranded as the Spectre x360 13.5, still carrying the same size screen but sporting a clean new design.

It’s a bit expensive, but it’s even more attractive this time around, a bonus to the improved performance and battery life. The competition has stiffened, but HP still managed to climb its way back to the top with its flagship.

Price and configurations

I reviewed a $1,700 configuration of the Spectre x360 13.5 with a Core i7-1255U and a 13.5-inch 3:2 3000×2000 OLED display.

The Spectre x360 13.5 is available in several configurations, starting at $1,200 for a Core i5-1235U CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 512GB PCIe 4.0 SSD, and a WUXGA+ (1920 x 1280) IPS touch display. At the high end, you’ll spend $1,840 for a Core i7-1255U, 16GB of RAM, a 2TB SSD, and a 13.5-inch 3:2 3K2K (3000 x 2000) OLED display. If you want the maximum RAM, a $1,780 configuration is available with a Core i7-1255U, 32GB of RAM, a 2TB SSD, and the WUXGA+ display.

I’m not sure why HP hasn’t enabled both the maximum RAM and the OLED display, and perhaps that’s something that will change. My review configuration was $1,700 for a Core i7-1255U, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD, and the OLED display.

The most pertinent competitive laptop at around the same price is the Lenovo Yoga 9i Gen 7, although that 2-in-1 is heavily discounted and a few hundred dollars less than the Spectre. The Lenovo Yoga 7i Gen 7 is less expensive and offers the same CPU but, at the moment, no OLED display option.

Design

Mark Coppock/Digital Trends

The Spectre x360 14 featured HP’s dramatic gem-cut design with sharply angled edges and notches cut into the rear display and chassis corners. With its rose gold or copper accents, the 2-in-1’s aesthetic was a lovely laptop that stood apart from the crowd. HP scaled back that design with the Spectre x360 13.5, just like it did with the Spectre x360 16, rounding off and slimming the edges and toning down the extravagance. The chassis notches remain functional, with the left hosting the 3.5mm audio jack and the right a USB-C port for keeping the charging cable out of the way.

The result is a more refined look that’s just as elegant and distinctive but not as loud. The rounded edges are also a bit more comfortable to hold in tablet mode, although not as comfortable as the even more rounded edges of the Lenovo Yoga 9i Gen 7.

My review unit sported the Nightfall Black color with brass accents, with optional Natural Silver and Nocturne Blue color schemes with matching edges. In each case, the keyboard matches the primary color. The Spectre x360 13.5’s only aesthetic equals in the 14-inch 2-in-1 crowd are the Yoga 9i Gen 7 and Yoga 7i Gen7, which have rounded and sculpted chassis that are just as attractive in their own way. I’m not saying the rest of the field is boring, exactly, but none are as attractive as these three machines.

Constructed of CNC machined recycled aluminum, the Spectre x360 13.5 is rock-solid.

Constructed of CNC machined-recycled aluminum, the Spectre x360 13.5 is also rock-solid, with no bending, flexing, or twisting anywhere in the lid, keyboard deck, or bottom chassis. It joins the best-built laptops like the Dell XPS 13 and the Lenovo Yoga 9i Gen 7. The only laptop I’ve handled that truly feels more solid is the Apple MacBook Pro 14, and the difference is marginal. Unfortunately, the hinge is just the tiniest bit too stiff to open the lid with one hand, but it holds the display firmly in place in clamshell, tent, media, and tablet modes.

I include the Spectre x360 13.5 in the 14-inch category, but it could easily be lumped in with 13.3-inch laptops just as easily. With the taller display, though, it feels like a 14-inch machine, so that’s how I’m going to treat it. Thanks to narrow bezels and a 90% screen-to-body ratio, the Spectre x360 13.5 is a compact machine. Compared to the Yoga 9i Gen 7, the HP is almost an inch narrower and half an inch shallower, and it’s 0.67 inches thick and 3.01 pounds compared to the Yoga at 0.60 inches and 3.09 pounds.

The latest Dell XPS 13 is smaller, with the Spectre x360 13.5 being an inch wider and deeper. The XPS 13 is thinner at 0.58 inches and lighter at 2.8 pounds. That slots the Spectre x360 13.5 between the Yoga and XPS 13 in every dimension except thickness.

Ports and connectivity

The Spectre x360 13.5 has decent connectivity, with two USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 4 support, a single USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 port, a microSD card reader, and a 3.5mm audio jack. That’s more than the typical 13-inch laptop but less than many 14-inch laptops that include an HDMI port. HP throws in a USB-C hub with two USB-A ports and an HDMI port, which is good to have, but it doesn’t substitute for built-in connections.

Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 provide the latest in wireless connectivity.

Performance

The lid of the HP Spectre x360 13.5.

HP opted for a lower-power CPU with the Spectre x360 13.5, specifically the 15-watt 10-core (two performance and eight Efficient), 12-thread Core i7-1255U with a Turbo Boost of 4.7GHz. The Core i5-1255U with a Turbo Boost of 4.4GHz is also available. My review unit equipped the Core i7-1255U, and it performed well compared to the other similarly equipped laptops we’ve reviewed. It was also a massive improvement over the 11th-gen Core i7-1165G7 in the Spectre x360 14. At the same time, unsurprisingly, the Spectre x360 13.5 wasn’t as fast as the Yoga 9i Gen 7 and Acer Swift 3 which were equipped with the 28-watt, 12-core (four Performance and eight Efficient), 16-thread Core i7-1260P.

I used the HP Command Center utility to test both balanced and performance modes. The utility made a significant difference in the CPU-intensive benchmarks, but I did notice that the fans were never extremely loud in either mode. HP updated the thermal design of the Spectre x360 13.5, including adopting new fans that were designed to produce less noise. They did the job. The laptop also didn’t throttle much in either mode, hitting 91 degrees C at most and spending the majority of time in the mid-70s. Given the thin chassis, I suspect HP tuned the machine to avoid generating too much heat, which likely limited performance a bit compared to laptops that are tuned to run hotter but throttle at the high end.

The Spectre x360 13.5 provided excellent productivity performance while running cool and quiet.

In the Geekbench 5 benchmark, the Spectre x360 13.5 fell behind the Lenovo Yoga 7i Gen 7 but was faster in multi-core than the Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1. It was well behind the Core i7-1260P machines and ahead of the Asus ZenBook S 13 OLED with a 28-watt, eight-core/16-thread AMD Ryzen 7 6800U. In our Handbrake test that encodes a 420MB video as H.265, the Spectre was the fastest among its peers and only slightly behind the higher-watt laptops (in performance mode). In Cinebench R23, the Spectre x360 13.5 was in line with its peers, again in performance mode but well behind the faster machines. Finally, in PCMark 10 Complete, which tests a variety of productivity, multimedia, and creative tasks, the Spectre was competitive with the rest of the comparison group.

Overall, the Spectre x360 13.5 provided excellent productivity performance while running cool and quiet, but as with other laptops with the same CPU, it fell behind in creative tasks. It’s significantly faster than Intel’s previous generation, though, and can tackle some lightweight creative work in a pinch. As we’ll see in the battery life section, the Spectre leveraged the lower-watt CPU’s efficiency better than the other laptops I’ve reviewed.

The Spectre x360 13.5 scored about as expected in the 3DMark Time Spy test, with its score in performance mode being at the top end of the class. Of course, the laptop is limited to Intel’s Iris Xe and won’t be able to play modern titles at anything except 1080p and low graphics. I couldn’t get Fortnite to install, so I couldn’t test the Spectre’s performance in our go-to game for integrated graphics. I’m sure, though, that it wouldn’t have performed any better than other Iris Xe machines.

Display and audio

The display of the HP Spectre x360 13.5.

As usual, the Spectre x360 13.5’s 13.5-inch 3:2 OLED display was gorgeous from the second I fired it up. It’s sharp enough at a resolution of 3000 x 2000 and colorful and bright with deep, inky blacks. HP also offers a WUXGA+ (1920 x 1280) IPS display and a WUXGA+ display with HP’s privacy screen.

My colorimeter loved this display. It was bright at 380 nits, above our 300-nit standard, and bright enough for any indoor setting. Its colors were wide at 100% of sRGB and 97% of AdobeRGB and incredibly accurate with a DeltaE of 0.61 (1.0 or less is indistinguishable to the human eye). And its contrast hit the OLED standard at 28,230:1. The three OLED displays in the comparison group were almost equal in quality, with the Spectre having the widest and most accurate colors.

Whether you’re doing productivity work, binging Netflix, or working with images and video, you’ll love this display. And it’s not just the brightness, colors, and contrast but also the aspect ratio, which at 3:2 is the closest to a physical piece of paper in portrait mode and thus optimal for tablet use.

Four downward-firing speakers provide plenty of volumes, with crisp and clean mids and highs. There’s not a lot of bass, and so the Spectre x360 13.5’s audio can’t keep up with the best around, Apple’s MacBooks. Still, the audio is good enough for binging Netflix and listening to the occasional tune. Of course, audiophiles will still prefer a good pair of headphones.

Keyboard and touchpad

The keyboard of the HP Spectre x360 13.5.

HP’s Spectre line has long offered some of the best keyboards in Windows laptops, with only Apple’s latest MacBook Pro Magic Keyboard being better. That remains true with the Spectre x360 13.5, although the keyboard isn’t exactly the same as previous models.

Interestingly, HP dropped the convenient row of navigation keys along the right-hand side, which I miss, but I appreciate the extra key spacing. The keycaps are also large, making for a very efficient layout. As before, the switches are light and snappy with a precise bottoming action. It’s one of the most comfortable keyboards I’ve used for long typing sessions. One nit to pick is that HP dropped the right Ctrl key in favor of a fingerprint reader.

The touchpad is large and takes up most of the space on the palm rest, which is larger than usual thanks to the taller 3:2 display. The touchpad surface is smooth and provides a precise surface for Windows 11’s multitouch gestures, and the buttons have a nice click without being too loud. Outside of Apple’s Force Touch touchpad or Dell’s haptic touchpad on the XPS 13 Plus, it’s one of the best touchpads you’ll find.

The display is touch-enabled, of course, and supports HP’s active pen that’s included in the box. I found the pen’s Windows Ink support to be excellent thanks to 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and tilt support, and it conveniently attaches magnetically to the right side of the display. The pen charges via USB-C, which is another convenience.

Windows 11 Hello passwordless login is supported by an infrared camera, facial recognition, and the fingerprint reader mentioned previously. Both methods worked quickly and reliably.

Webcam

Mark Coppock/Digital Trends

HP has outfitted the Spectre x360 13.5 with a 5MP webcam that provides a high-resolution image, and several software tools optimize the videoconferencing experience. HP Presence provides Auto Frame to keep the user’s face in view as they move around the office during a call, Backlight Adjustment that ensures consistent lighting no matter the ambient environment, and Appearance Filter that smooths out blemishes that other webcams might highlight. Several audio enhancements also Strengthen the experience, including directional beamforming mics and bi-directional AI noise reduction.

There’s a key to electronically close a physical shutter over the webcam, along with a key to turn off the microphones. That provides for some extra privacy.

Battery life

Mark Coppock/Digital Trends

The Spectre x360 13.5 has 66 watt-hours of battery capacity, a slight decrease from the previous generation’s 67 watt-hours. That’s a fair amount, more than the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 7’s 57 watt-hours but less than the Yoga 9i Gen 7’s 75 watt-hours. Both the Spectre and Yoga 9i used power-hungry OLED displays, and so I was looking forward to seeing if HP managed to exploit the lower-watt CPU’s presumed efficiency advantage.

According to our suite of benchmarks, HP did something right — the Spectre x360 13.5 lasted surprisingly long in our suite of battery tests. Looking back at the performance section, it’s clear that HP tuned the laptop to run more efficiently in balanced mode at the expense of performance. That’s a reasonable tradeoff, with the Spectre being more than fast enough for typical productivity tasks while achieving excellent battery life.

In our web browsing test, for example, it lasted for 10 hours, which is an excellent score, particularly for a laptop with an OLED display. The Spectre made it to 11 hours in the PCMark 10 Applications battery test, which is the best predictor of battery life running a typical (i.e., non-demanding) productivity workflow. And in our video test that loops a local 1080p movie trailer, it lasted for 14 hours, another strong showing given the OLED display. The only laptop in our comparison group that competed with the Spectre x360 13.5 in all but the web browsing test, where it was almost three hours behind, was the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 7, and it benefitted from a low-power Full HD+ IPS display.

You don’t often get OLED quality and long battery life, but the Spectre x360 13.5 delivers. You should be able to work for a full day of typical productivity tasks and maybe even have a little time left over.

Our take

The Spectre x360 13.5 is precisely what HP needed to produce to follow up on the success of the Spectre x360 14. The new 2-in-1 is faster, offers significantly better battery life, has a more refined look, and retains the excellent keyboard and touchpad of the previous model.

I’m giving the Spectre x360 13.5 a 9/10 score, one notch less than the Spectre x360 14, not because the update isn’t as good. It’s because the competition has gotten so much better. HP’s latest regains its spot as the best convertible 2-in-1, but the gap between it and the next best isn’t quite so large.

Are there any alternatives?

The strongest alternative is the Lenovo Yoga 9i Gen 7. It’s just as good-looking, as well built, and slightly faster. But its battery life isn’t nearly as good, and its keyboard and touchpad are a step behind. It’s a little less expensive, though, and so makes for a solid choice.

If you don’t need a 2-in-1, then Dell’s new XPS 13 Plus is an attractive option. It’s faster and enjoys its own stunning new design, incorporating innovations like an excellent haptic touchpad. You’ll spend about the same money and get a clamshell that’s among the best available today.

My final recommendation is the Apple MacBook Air M2. It’s equally solid, if not slightly more so, it offers better performance and battery life, and its display is excellent even if not quite up to OLED standards. You’ll spend around the same money, and the MacBook is a compelling alternative if you’re okay with MacOS.

How long will it last?

The Spectre x350 13.5 is incredibly well-built and will last for years, which its modern components will also support. The industry-standard one-year warranty is a disappointment, as always.

Should you buy it?

Yes. Solid productivity performance and excellent battery life in a nicely sized, thin and light 2-in-1 with a spectacular OLED display — what’s not to like?

Killexams : HP Envy 34 All-in-One PC Review: One Size Fits Some

Apple abdicated the high-end all-in-one market once dominated by its 27-inch iMac, but no one's rushed in to fill the gap. Even Microsoft discontinued its 32-inch touchscreen Surface Studio 2. The trend isn't surprising, given that both the price and size of 24-inch models tends to make them more attractive than the larger models for the type of buyer considering an all-in-one, where speed is usually pretty far down the list of requirements. And if you do want a 27-inch model, there are numerous midrange offerings in Dell's Inspiron and HP's Pavilion lines. As the lone remaining premium big-screen option (as far as I can tell), the HP Envy 34 AIO becomes the best choice in that class by default.

But that doesn't necessarily make it the best buy as a desktop PC. It's a fine system with a nice 34-inch display and some useful features, like a magnetically attachable webcam and Qi charging pad in the base, but you're paying for pretty and not performance.

Like

  • Attractive design with intelligent layout
  • Qi charger in base and detachable webcam
  • Easily replaceable/upgradable memory and storage
  • Reasonably color accurate, bright display

Don't Like

  • Because of mobile GPU and display configuration, not great for gaming
  • No HDR support
  • Graphics performance like a laptop

Like a ton of systems these days, our roughly $2,300 test configuration of the Envy 34 AIO (Intel Core i7-11700, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 and 16GB RAM) has been going in and out of stock, though at the moment you can find it on Amazon. You can get it with several combinations of CPU, GPU, memory and storage starting at about $1,750 for an i5-11400 and GTX 1650

If you want more powerful graphics, you can configure it with the RTX 3060, but you may also want to consider simply buying a midrange gaming laptop -- some will provide you better performance with similar components -- and a decent monitor that meets your needs. Or save money by going with something less elegant but faster, like the Dell XPS 8950 tower, and shove it under your desk if you don't want to look at it.

Smart Design

The system is well designed overall. That includes an SD card slot, USB-C and two USB-A ports on the stand, a reasonably accessible location, in addition to the host of connectors on the back of the display. There are two watt stereo speakers which are pretty good for their relatively low power output, a slow-ish Qi wireless charging pad on the base and an above-average webcam that connects magnetically to the top of the screen. It comes bundled with a decent wireless mouse and keyboard, though the keyboard doesn't have a backlight.

You can upgrade the memory and storage relatively easily via a panel on the back, which is also nice. On the flip side, it did take two of us about 20 minutes to find the power button, since it's hard to see and hard to feel: It's flat and on the right underside of the monitor bezel.

There are no controls for the webcam, such as zoom or exposure compensation, and keep in mind that "16 megapixel binning" translates to a bit higher than 2 megapixels/1080p (2,304x1,292, or about 3 megapixels). The binning allows it to have a serviceable image in near-dark lighting. HP's lighting application lets you toss up a ring light on the display to Strengthen exposure, and it's actually a pretty useful app. Because the screen is so large (the software was intended for laptops), the virtual ring light can get bright enough to light up a dark room. 

It's all screen

But the display is really the highlight of the package. It's based on a similar 34-inch, 5K2K panel as the LG 34WK95U. As tested, it performed very well, above average for a general-purpose display and good enough for non color-critical photo and video editing: maximum brightness of about 550 nits and typically about 350 nits at its default settings, 97% P3 color gamut, an average color error of less than 2 Delta E at its best, about 1,200:1 contrast and no visible uniformity issues.

The ports on the side of the HP Envy 34 all in one's stand, one USB-C, 2 USB-A and an SD card slot.

If the monitor is raised, getting to the connections on the stand is easy. When it's lowered, it's a little trickier.

It comes with a display utility that swaps among the most popular color profiles and allows you to map specific profiles to applications to automatically swap on launch. But they're not true calibrations; they don't include specific brightness levels or remap out of gamut colors to within the boundaries of the space. Toss in that the white point varies a bit with brightness -- it's about 6700K at the default setting but rises (gets cooler) notably as you increase output, unsurprising given it's over 500 nits -- and that's why I don't think it's good for color-critical work. 

You can always perform your own software calibrations, though, which should get it pretty close. (All measurements were taken using Portrait Display's Calman 2021 software using a Calibrite ColorChecker Display Plus, formerly X-Rite i1Display Pro Plus.)

But it doesn't support HDR. While that's not essential and the specs of the display wouldn't really do it justice, it's one of the things you automatically dream of when you see that big, fixed display. You can connect the Envy to another monitor via Thunderbolt or HDMI if it becomes a must-have for you. Keep in mind that like most all-in-ones you can't use the display like a monitor for another system (in other words, connect two systems to the monitor). Because all-in-ones look like they're just a monitor, people tend to make the assumption that it can act exactly like one, but that's a specialty feature.

Sufficient speed

Its performance is good enough for a lot of people, but not up to the level of the equivalent H-series mobile CPUs, and the mobile RTX 3060 GPU underperforms some laptop competitors, partly because the power seems to be capped at 70w (the part can go up to 80w). More frustrating, though, because it uses a laptop architecture the display isn't on the GPU bus, which I suspect contributes to some frustrations of getting games to run windowed at lower resolutions. The 3060 is a fine GPU, but it's not intended to run games at passable frame rates in 5K resolution. 

That doesn't mean you can't, and in fact I had a perfectly fun time playing Stray at the native resolution. And there's always cloud gaming.

I like the HP Envy 34 AIO, and it certainly feels like a nice home or traditional office system for people who need big screens in a small space. But a laptop with a monitor and dock is a lot more flexible and cheaper in the "you don't have to buy everything at once" sense, especially if you're going to spend over $2,000 on a desktop that performs like a laptop.

Killexams : HP Pavilion Plus 14 No result found, try new keyword!The HP Pavilion Plus 14 is an otherwise well-performing work machine but its surprisingly bad battery life really undercuts its purpose. Tue, 02 Aug 2022 06:30:44 -0500 en-us text/html https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/hp-pavilion-plus-14/ar-AA10eY2e Killexams : HP Pavilion x360 m3 Convertible review: a mid-range laptop with everything you need

Are you in the market for a new laptop? You're in the right place. I've been using the HP Pavilion x360 m3 Convertible for about a month and a half now, and to be honest, I've enjoyed almost every bit of it.

As I always do when reviewing a laptop, I'm writing this review on the Pavilion x360. As a blogger, keyboard quality is very important to me, so if I can write a full review on it without any problems, the machine passes the test. Huawei's MateBook was an example of one with a keyboard that didn't do quite so well.

Of course, this has been my fulltime laptop for some time now, so I'm pretty familiar with it and I'm confident that it can deliver. Let's dive right in.

Specs

Display 13.3" 1080p IPS touchscreen
Processor 2.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5-6200U
RAM 8GB, 2133 MHz, DDR4 SDRAM, expandable to 16GB
Storage 128GB SSD
Body 12.8x8.7x0.8-inches, 3.48-pounds
Ports Headphone/microphone, 1 USB 2.0, 2 USB 3.0, HDMI, media card reader
Wi-Fi Wireless-B, Wireless-A, Wireless-G, Wireless-N, Wireless-AC

The only thing that might leave you wanting more from these specs is the storage. 128GB is certainly not a lot, but you can get by just fine if you're comfortable with cloud storage. If you're the type of person that likes to locally store tons of video files, you might want to check out something with more storage.

While it's only 128GB, it's still fast because it's an SSD. Solid state drives are much faster than hard disk drives (HDDs), so you're basically sacrificing space for speed.

Third-party software

The issue of third-party software on PCs is a big one, and it's the one issue that I had with the Pavilion x360; luckily, there's a workaround that I'll get into in the next section. Here's what comes pre-installed on the laptop, including HP's own software:

  • Amazon

  • Amazon.com pinned to taskbar

  • Avast SecureLine

  • B&O Play Audio Control

  • CyberLink Power Media Player 14

  • CyberLink PowerDirector

  • Dropbox

  • HP ePrint

  • HP Help & Support

    • HP Documentation

    • HP Recovery Manager

    • HP Support Assistant

  • McAffee LiveSafe

  • Microsoft Solitaire Collection

  • Netflix

  • Priceline.com

  • Simple Solitaire

  • Snapfish

  • TripAdvisor

  • WildTangent Games

Note that Amazon being listed twice isn't a typo. The app comes pre-installed, but the website is pinned to the taskbar. The pin shouldn't be considered software, but it's worth mentioning. It's also worth mentioning that not all of it comes from HP, as Microsoft pre-loads some Windows apps now, such as Solitaire Collection.

Put simply, some of it is useful and some of it is not. The Dropbox app will get you a 25GB bonus in your account, which is nice. HP Support Assistant isn't only useful, but it's important. That's where your drivers are updated, as well as third-party software.

McAfee is software that I don't recommend installing or using on anything. Unfortunately, you're going to see annoying pop-ups from it from time to time, even if you never opt into it. The other apps are pretty much dormant until you use them.

Luckily, the laptop contains a license for Windows 10 Home, and it doesn't have to be HP's version that you get from the HP Recovery Manager. You can download a stock version of Windows 10 from Microsoft and use that instead.

Ultimately, the third-party software wasn't a dealbreaker for me. I still found the laptop to be a pleasant experience with it, but I enjoyed it even more once I installed a clean version of Windows.

The design and form factor

The HP Pavilion x360 is sleek and sexy. There's no doubt about that. The champagne-colored - called Modern Gold - metal body makes it pleasing to look at and it feels premium.

As with all of HP's x360 devices, you can easily fold the monitor all the way back. This convertible design gives it a sort of tablet feel, but unfortunately there is no pen support. Of course, your options aren't only laptop and tablet. You can bend the monitor into any position you want, such as setting it up in a tent position that will allow you to stand it up while you watch movies.

The gold keyboard is a nice touch as well. As I mentioned, I'm writing this review on that keyboard. To be fair, I knew it would go well going into it, as I've been using this machine to write articles for weeks.

But it's not just a good-looking keyboard. It's also comfortable to type on. It doesn't feel cheap, as you might get with some laptops in this price range. To put it simply, it's one of the better keyboards that I've used.

The trackpad is elegantly designed, as is the rest of the machine, but unfortunately it doesn't function as well as the keyboard does. It's simply not very sensitive, and it won't move the pointer as far as you'd like. There is a whole menu of settings to adjust things like this and I spent a significant amount of time trying to find a configuration that was comfortable.

I did find that using two fingers to scroll was the one thing that worked reasonably well. Unfortunately, multiple finger gestures did not. If you use the Pavilion x360, make sure that you're comfortable with primarily using a mouse.

The display

I'm a bit spoiled when it comes to displays, as I use a Surface Pro 3 to do most of my work. The 1080p display on the Pavilion x360 is undoubtedly a step down from the Pro 3, but it's definitely great for the price.

It's certainly not what Apple would define as Retina, as you can easily see pixellation. Luckily, it's not enough that everything seems oversized.

Full HD is a fine resolution for a 13.3-inch display, even if I do have a bit of a bias here. It's certainly enough to do your work on, as well as edit images and video.

The touchscreen comes in handy as well. Windows Ink arrived with the Anniversary Update, and while there is no active pen support, you can use regular styluses or even your finger to draw in the Ink Workspace. These features come in particularly handy when you bend the screen all the way back.

Tablet mode

I've mentioned that you can fold the monitor back to use the laptop as a tablet before, and I'll talk about it more when we get to performance, but it really deserves its own section.

The ability to quickly turn a laptop into a tablet form factor is extremely useful. The device is much heavier than, say, an iPad Air 2, or even a Surface Pro 4 or MateBook, so it's not going to serve as your primary tablet. In other words, don't expect to do all of your Kindle memorizing on this.

It's great, however, if you want to fold back your laptop and play a quick game of Halo: Spartan Assault or something else. My opinion on this feature, just like on Windows touchscreens in general is that it's not something you'll use all the time, but it's great to have when you do want it.

Of course, you certainly could read your Kindle books on the Pavilion x360. As you may have noticed from the images, the display will orient to any position you put it in.

Audio

The HP Pavilion x360 uses Bang & Olufsen audio, so it sounds great. That's really all you need to know. I used it for watching movies and listening to music, podcasts, and audiobooks. It sounds really great, and you probably won't find yourself wanting external speakers.

Let's face it. When you buy a laptop, the speakers on it aren't what you'd call "great", or even "halfway decent". When we talked about the form factor, I mentioned putting the device in a tent position to set it up for watching movies, and the Pavilion will product adequate volume to do so.

Keep in mind, however, that the speakers are above the keyboard. When you fold the monitor back in any way, the speakers are now facing away from you. I didn't find this to be a problem, but if you're watching something, the further away from it that you are, the more this might cause an issue for you.

Ultimately, the speakers were one of my favorite parts of the Pavilion x360, as I often end up plugging in headphones on a laptop, but I didn't have to do that with this device. I never found myself wanting more volume than it could produce, which is a rare quality in a laptop.

Battery life

The listing for the device promises eight hours of battery life. I found that to be a bit generous, but not by much. In fairness, just about any Windows PC that you buy exaggerates the battery life that it's going to get, or at leasts tests them under optimal conditions.

I didn't have any problems squeezing six hours of life out of the Pavilion x360, and most of the time I could get more than that. Keep in mind that I normally use the Chrome browser (which uses more battery than Edge) and while most of the time I'm browsing the web and writing articles, at times I'm compiling apps in Visual Studio or editing video.

Personally, I'd say the battery life on the Pavilion x360 is a win.

Performance

The Pavilion x360 does everything that you'd expect a Core i5 machine to do. Since I've begun using it, I've had no problems at all running Photoshop, as well as other apps from the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite. Running other heavier apps, such as Visual Studio and SQL Server was a pleasant experience as well.

I also tried out some of the games from the Windows Store. Touch-based games like Asphalt 8 and Halo: Spartan Strike run like a charm. Your arms might get a bit tired when using the Pavilion as a tablet, as it's a bit heavy to be one, but you do have the option to play those games.

Of course, I also ran benchmarks, for those that care about them. Personally, I recommend not putting any stock into benchmarks at all, as they rarely reflect real-world performance. I used Geekbench 4.

As you can see, the results are right around where you'd expect them to be for a dual-core Intel Core i5 processor.

Conclusion

Ultimately, the HP Pavilion x360 m3 Convertible is a buy. This assumes that you're looking to spend $729 on a laptop.

Of course, everyone has different needs when it comes to buying a new PC. If you're in the market for a gaming rig, it's not for you. If you're only looking to spend a few hundred dollars, this also isn't your machine.

This laptop hits the perfect spot for anyone that wants a solid machine but doesn't want to spend over $1,000 for one. I enjoyed my time with it, and I think you will too.

You can check out the Pavilion x360 at Best Buy right here, which is selling it for $729.99.

Killexams : Here’s how HP recycles its ink cartridges — and works on climate pledges

The reconciliation package moving through Congress includes $369 billion to fight climate change, and Senate Democrats’ summary of the deal says it would put the United States on a path to cut around 40% of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

Much of corporate America has made climate pledges over the past few years as well. “Marketplace” host Kai Ryssdal recently went to Tennessee for a behind-the-scenes look at how HP, one of the world’s biggest computer and printer makers, is working to meet its sustainability targets. HP has a goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040 across its value chain — that’s the supply chain from start to finish, including emissions from product use at home by the consumer.

Chief Sustainability Officer James McCall gave Ryssdal a tour of the HP ink cartridge recycling facility run by Sims Lifecycle Services in La Vergne, Tennessee. The 80,000-square-foot facility is one way HP is working toward another climate goal: circularity.

“The way that we think about it is anything that’s coming from a recycled source or a renewable source or getting a second life,” McCall said. “So these ink cartridges, what we want is to take this plastic and turn it back into the next device.”

The company has committed to reach 75% circularity for products and packaging by 2030.

Most HP ink cartridges are made with at least 50% recycled plastic. Ink cartridges are a substantial part of HP’s business, because consumers purchase them more regularly than printers and computers. HP has manufactured more than 5.4 billion ink cartridges through 2021.

“We process nearly 100,000 cartridges a day at this facility,” McCall said. HP ink cartridges of all sizes come to La Vergne from across the United States, Canada and Mexico after consumers return them via mail or by dropping them off at retailers like Staples or Walmart.

The 30 people who work at the facility sort the used cartridges, disassemble them and shred the plastic casings for use in future products. On the day of Ryssdal’s visit, the site manager estimated they were holding 4 million to 5 million ink cartridges.

The first step of recycling those millions of returned ink cartridges is sorting them on a conveyor belt. The system uses cameras and artificial intelligence to group the cartridges by size and shape to make them easier to disassemble.

“We’ve learned our way into this process,” McCall said. “Several years ago, HP had to kind of invent this as we went along. … Some of our first test models were taking an old washing machine and starting to put cartridges in it to see if we could clean them. We borrowed an old chicken processing line from Tyson and we figured out if we could use that for sorting processes. So, what you’re seeing now is the second and third generation of that.”

Once the cartridges are sorted, they head to the other side of the building for disassembly and plastic shredding. A machine scrapes the sticker off the top of the ink cartridges, removes the lids and takes out the foam and precious metals inside the cartridges. That leaves the hollow cartridge, which is shredded.

The average ink cartridge spends two to three months in La Vergne. Then, the finished product — the shredded plastic — is sent to another plant in Canada where it gets mixed with other recycled plastics and turned into pellets. The pellets are sent to HP’s manufacturing locations, including Malaysia and China, where they are used to make new ink cartridges that go to market.

According to HP, its sustainable impact efforts added $3.5 billion in new sales in fiscal year 2021, a three-fold increase over the prior year but still a fraction of the company’s $63.5 billion revenue.

“The scale of the challenge is there, but the opportunity is ahead of us,” McCall said. “As customers start to shift and make these choices, you’re also seeing industry change and customers change as we start to rethink this. That’s what it’s going to take — it’s going to take us rethinking the overall supply chain.”

Killexams : HP ZBook Firefly G9 review: A futuristic look for a mobile workstation
HP ZBook Firefly G9 review: A futuristic look for a mobile workstation

Enterprise

The HP ZBook Firefly G9. PHOTO: Handout

You know that HP’s ZBook Firefly G9 laptop differs from other laptops in its lineup when you see the big Z emblazoned across the cover. Like other ZBooks, this one is aimed at professionals who need the horsepower of a workstation on the go.

The looks match that too. The shiny silver-coloured chassis gives the laptop a level of sophistication so it’s something an executive would have no issue bringing around to meetings. The 1.47kg laptop isn’t the lightest but it is slim.

What’s more important to its potential buyers is an engine that can crunch data, effortlessly create PowerPoint slides and even edit videos on the go.

Armed with a 12th-gen Intel Core i7-1255U processor, 32GB of RAM, an Nvidia RTX A500 graphics chip and a 512GB NVMe solid state drive (SSD), the ZBook Firefly G9 has ample horsepower to run the latest professional applications.

These specs also suggest that the laptop can be a mobile video editing machine. A quick performance test using the Cinebench R23 benchmark came back with a multicore score of 6,961, which is decent but not the highest in its class.

The score is lower than the 9,542 I got from the Asus VivoBook Pro 16X OLED laptop, which I tested separately. The Asus laptop had an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H mobile processor, 16GB of RAM, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics chip and a 1TB SSD.

To be fair, the Asus machine is designed for content creators, so it is not surprising that the business-centric HP ZBook did not score as well.

What the HP ZBook has going for it is an excellent keyboard layout that makes it easy to touch-type. There is ample space between keys to avoid accidental keystrokes. Plus, the keys offer good tactile feedback.

The Nvidia graphics chip onboard powers the 14-inch WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200) display. The screen has a narrow bezel and, at 250 nits, is bright enough to be used in most situations. The screen represents 100 per cent per cent DCI-P3 colour gamut, which is great for editing photos and videos.

HP has also included an integrated privacy screen. This way, you can prevent prying eyes from looking when working with sensitive information, say, on a plane as travel resumes.

The keyboard is well spaced out with good tactile feel. The fingerprint scanner is located just below the right arrow key. PHOTO: Wilson Wong

Danish audio company Bang & Olufsen tweaks the sound system for the ZBook. The audio is clear, although lacking in bass. It may have sounded better if the speakers are facing towards the front rather than downwards.

The laptop has a variety of ports with USB-A and a 3.5mm audio port on the right side, with two USB Type-C ports, one USB-A and one full-size HDMI port for the monitor or projector on the other side. I can charge the laptop via the Type-C thunderbolt ports on the left.

That said, you’ll need to buy a separate USB-Type C dongle if you require a SD card reader or wired network connection. So, do factor in the cost if these are important.

Enough ports for most users. You can expand the ports by purchasing a Type-C dongle. PHOTO: Wilson Wong

As a business-focused laptop, the ZBook Firefly G9 comes with features that you’d expect from a corporate-issued machine.

There is an embedded Tile Tracker to locate a lost ZBook, secure BIOS update over the network and various security and anti-malware apps that make the job of your organisation’s IT administrator easier.

There is a fingerprint scanner at the bottom right corner of the keyboard for secure and easy logins. I prefer power buttons with integrated fingerprint scanners because they serve both purposes of switching on the laptop and gaining access securely using my finger without having to search for the scanner.

One final thing to note is that the ZBook Firefly G9 runs warm after when pushed. It certainly did when I was running the performance tests. So, remember to prop it up for the internal fans to cool the hardware more efficiently.

Costing S$2,670, the ZBook Firefly G9 has great features for corporate users but they can be overkill for regular consumers. For content creators, there may also be other alternatives offer better screen resolution and a zippier graphics chip for video rendering.

Killexams : Best HP Gaming Laptop in India

HP makes some of the best gaming laptops. The long-running HP gaming laptop Pavilion series is popular across casual and professional gamers alike. The brand also has the HP Gaming laptop OMEN brand under its umbrella, representing high specification laptops with ultimate performance.

Likewise, last year HP also introduced the HP Victus gaming laptop series featuring high-performance laptops under a budget. Essentially, bringing down the HP Gaming laptop price while simultaneously increasing its value. So today we are taking a look at some of the best HP gaming laptops across different price ranges.

01. HP Victus 16

HP Victus 16

The Victus 16 is not the HP Gaming laptop under Rs 50000, it is a little bit expensive at around Rs 57000, but it is totally worth it. I recently tested the combination of the AMD Ryzen 5 5600H and the AMD Radeon 5500 and came out pretty impressed with it. The all-AMD budget HP Victus 16 gaming laptop delivers better performance than a combination of a 10th Gen Intel Core i5 (quad-core) and an Nvidia GTX 1650. In our gaming test, the AMD Radeon RX 5500M performed measurably better than the Nvidia GTX 1650. In fact, the AMD GPU is closer in performance to an Nvidia RTX 3050 compared to the Nvidia GTX 1650. The laptop’s other specifications are also decent as it comes with 8GB DDR4 RAM, 512GB SSD, a 1080p FHD display with 60Hz maximum refresh rate support.

02. HP Pavilion Gaming

HP Pavilion Gaming

The HP gaming laptop Pavilion series is a long-standing one. And the HP Pavilion gaming laptop with the AMD Ryzen 5 5600H and the Nvidia RTX 3050 is one of the most value for money laptops you can find. The hexa-core AMD GPU is decently capable of performing daily productivity and gaming tasks. Meanwhile, the Nvidia RTX 3050 is easily capable of delivering 60FPS in most modern games. The overall design of the HP Pavilion gaming laptop is quite stealthy and its footprint also makes it decently portable. Other important specs of this laptop include 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD and a 15.6-inch 144hz 1080p FHD display.

03. HP Pavilion Gaming Ryzen 7

HP Pavilion Gaming Ryzen 7

For people looking for a gaming laptop with high processing power, this particular HP Victus 16 is perfect. It comes with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H Octa-core CPU featuring upto 4.4GHz of maximum boost clock speed. The laptop also comes with 16GB DDR4 memory running in dual-channel mode, offering better performance compared to a single memory stick running in a single channel. The laptop also comes with an Nvidia RTX 3050 GPU with 4GB GDDR6 VRAM. The laptop GPU comes with Nvidia’s DLSS technology allowing you to enjoy games at a higher frame rate without sacrificing visual fidelity. On top of all that, the laptop comes with a big 16.1-inch FHD display with 144hz maximum refresh rate support.

Following Blizzard’s announcement that Overwatch 2 will be available this October, people had the chance to try the open beta. Even though it did not include every new hero, we had the opportunity to test Sojourn, as well as some new maps. Of course, we also had access to all the names we were familiar with.


The Overwatch 2 closed beta was even more interesting because the developers allowed us to test the second new addition to the game – Junker Queen. We also got a good idea of every other hero and what we can expect from them. 

Although many players were happy with the changes, some expected more. So, let’s learn more about some of the things that many of us wished we saw in Overwatch 2 that are not available yet. Keep in mind that  Blizzard might decide to add them in the future.

A new ability for Widowmaker

Snipers are usually one of the most famous heroes/weapons in a given game because they are fun to play. Furthermore, having the option to one-shot someone is oddly satisfying, which is why Widowmaker has always been a popular pick. Even though this is one of the most controversial heroes in the game, she is mighty in the hands of those who can land headshots.

Widowmaker received a buff in Overwatch 2 because she has more HP. However, this was not what most people hoped for. Due to the hero’s specific playstyle, we expected Blizzard to add a new ability so that she could become stronger. Sadly, this was not the case.

Don’t get us wrong, Widowmaker is still an excellent option, especially now when heroes do not have substantial barriers. However, her high skill cap means that only people who can land headshots will succeed. The good thing is that the developers kept her movement ability because it allows her to secure exceptional positions.

We wouldn’t be surprised if Blizzard actually decides to add a new ability to Widowmaker in the future. Imagine if she had something similar to Echo’s sticky bombs that allowed her to finish off a target she nearly killed. 

Better range damage from Mei

Before we share some of our thoughts about this hero, we’d like to point out that Blizzard did a pretty good job with her in OW 2. Let’s face it, Mei was never the go-to option for most DPS players in Overwatch. She was great in the hands of professional players, but her lack of damage and awkward playstyle made her terrible for most pub games. 

It seems like Blizzard thought the same because the company decided to change a lot of things about her. Now, she deals 2x more damage and is way more dangerous, especially in closer range. However, her Ice Wall is not as strong as before.

While it is true that Mei does more damage up close, she is not that good in long-range combat. Sure, she can fire her icicles that do a lot of damage if she lands a headshot, but there is no such thing as burst ability. We might be asking too much here, considering Mei’s new damage output, but adding this to her arsenal will make her even more dangerous.

Some kind of a shield or barrier for Roadhog

One of the interesting things about Overwatch 2 is that each class now has a specific passive ability. In the case of tanks, they have resistance to CC effects, which allows them to have more uptime and be much harder to kill. 

Sadly, the new ability came at a cost because the barriers in this game are not as good as those in Overwatch. Reinhardt’s shield, for example, is much weaker, whereas heroes like Orisa don’t even have one anymore. Speaking of not having a shield, we expected Roadhog to receive something that would allow him to tank at least some incoming damage. However, this was not the case.

Roadhog was among the few tanks in Overwatch that relied on his massive HP to be effective. What’s more, he was the only tank that could heal himself, thanks to “Take a Breather”. Interestingly, this ability is even better in Overwatch 2 because it heals him for 350 HP instead of 300.

Unfortunately, he continues to be one of the tanks that do not have any kind of barrier. This puts him in the same boat as Junker Queen and a couple of other options.

More HP for Tracer

Last but not least, many of us were eager to see whether Tracer would finally get at least a small HP buff. As you know, this is the squishiest hero in Overwatch because she has only 150 HP. Fortunately, she makes up for it by doing tons of damage, especially when she is close to her target.

Despite being one of the hardest heroes to master, it seems like Blizzard thinks that she is too powerful. So, instead of buffing her, Tracer now deals 1 less damage with her Pulse Pistols than before. This does not seem a lot, but it affects the hero’s playstyle because she will need more time to kill her target. This is where an HP boost could come in handy.

Conclusion

There are still a few months left until Overwatch 2 becomes available to the public. The game will be free to play, so we expect to attract way more players than before. We don’t know whether there will be any new changes in the future, but we will definitely make sure to keep an eye on them. In the meantime, feel free to check the betting guides, as well as everything else about this game.
