HP Envy x360 15-ew0053nf performance, battery life
The HP Envy x360 15-ew0053nf may appeal to those who are looking for a thin and light 15-inch hybrid laptop that can be converted into a tablet for everyday use.
It has a large 1TB SSD storage capacity that can accommodate multiple files and software.
As a bonus, an SSD offers several advantages compared to a hard disk: greater resistance to shocks, silent operation, lower energy consumption and greater speed.
In practice, the SSD ensures a much better fluidity and reactivity in everyday life compared to a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, start/stop, processing and software launches are much faster, and you get to the online game maps faster.
However, there is no dedicated graphics card on board. However, thanks to the Intel Iris Xe graphics module directly housed in the processor, you can watch photos and videos as well as play modest games.
The Iris Xe is inserted in the hybrid processor Intel Core i5-1240P Alder Lake low power but with a TDP of 28W is higher than the classic 15W, which translates into better performance but impacts the autonomy.
In any case, the Core i5-1240P hybrid Alder Lake-P coupled with 16GB of RAM delivers good overall performance that will satisfy many users.
Those who wish to carry out multimedia work using the multi-core (and therefore the 12 cores of the Alder Lake-P) and the RAM will get with this core a respectable performance, as in photo editing or video conversion.
However, if you want to carry out processing that requires a lot of processor and/or graphics resources, you should opt for a PC with a non-low-power processor and/or an appropriate dedicated graphics card.
Finally, as for the autonomy of this versatile hybrid 2-in-1 Ultrabook, which is as easy to transport as an Ultrabook due to its slimness and light weight, expect to run for about 6 hours on battery power in light use.

The HP Envy x360 15-ew0053nf versus the competition
The HP Envy x360 15-ew0053nf is currently on sale at HP France and offers an interesting configuration/price ratio for its category where it is one of the only ones to offer a touch screen convertible into a tablet with such faithful colors (OLED) with an SSD storage of such a high capacity as well as a processor as powerful.
HP Envy x360 15-ew0053nf chassis, connectivity, screen
With its black aluminum design, anodized and sandblasted finish, this laptop looks sober, elegant but also original because it can open 360° to transform into a tablet.
The multi-touch technology equips the screen and you can interact with the system and software by simply applying at least one finger on it and this pressure / gestures.
The screen is brilliant because of its tactile aspect which implies revived colors but a sensitivity to the reflections in luminous environment (ex: outside).

The screen is also distinguished by its OLED DCI-P3 specifications, thanks to which it displays colors much more accurate than average with very deep blacks, low latency and large vertical and horizontal viewing angles. Thanks to its Full HD definition and its 16/9 format, the screen is also well suited to High Definition content such as videos.
Equipped with Infrared technology, the webcam allows biometric authentication by facial recognition.
We appreciate that a shutter is present to hide it if necessary to preserve privacy.
A backlighting system equips the chiclet keyboard, which is useful for better distinguishing its keys in case of limited ambient light.
On the other hand, we note the absence of a numeric keypad to enter numbers more easily, whereas this feature is standard from 15 inches, which some will not fail to deplore.
In any case, the connectivity integrated into this hybrid laptop will seduce a maximum of users because it consists of 2 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth 5. 2 and Wi-Fi 6E ax (more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect wirelessly, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this versatile Ultrabook to a monitor or a TV for example, its audio port without forgetting its 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected.
