HP Envy x360 15-fe0018nf performance, battery life
The HP Envy x360 15-fe0018nf is aimed at those looking for a 15-inch hybrid notebook for everyday multi-purpose use. It delivers good performance in everyday use. That’s because it’s backed by a generous 16 GB of RAM and an Intel Alder Lake Core i7-1355U hybrid low-power processor. The latter houses Iris Xe, a graphics solution that lets you view photos and videos, as well as play modest games.
This core is also suitable for multimedia work that uses RAM and multicore, such as video encoding or photo editing.
Storage here is obviously entrusted to an SSD, as it clearly enhances responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a hard disk.
It has to be said that SSDs offer a number of advantages over HDDs, including greater speed, lower power consumption, quieter operation and greater shock resistance.
On a day-to-day basis, for example, SSDs deliver faster start-up and shutdown times, as well as faster application processing and launch, and faster map arrival for online games.
A 512 GB SSD is offered here, a capacity in line with the hard disk standard. Of course, an external storage unit can be used if this proves too small. Opting for a USB 3.0/Thunderbolt/USB-C peripheral is then an advantageous solution for fast transfers.
As for the battery life of this versatile 2-in-1 hybrid Ultrabook, whose slim design and low weight make it easy to carry, you can expect around 7 hours of battery operation with light use.
It’s the perfect model for those looking for a student laptop that can be converted into a tablet.

HP Envy x360 15-fe0018nf chassis, connectors and screen
Openable 360° to convert into a Tablet, this 2-in-1 hybrid notebook with its slim, lightweight natural silver aluminum design boasts a sober, elegant and original look.
The screen is equipped with multi-touch technology. This means you can interact with the system and software by simply pressing and gesturing with at least one finger.
Because it’s touch-sensitive, the screen is glossy: while this brings colors to life, it is sensitive to reflections in bright environments (e.g. outdoors).
The screen also stands out for its IPS and sRGB specifications, which mean wide vertical and horizontal viewing angles, as well as better-than-average color fidelity. With its Full HD definition and 16:9 aspect ratio, the screen is also ideal for displaying high-definition content such as videos.

A webcam is positioned above the screen. Infrared technology enables biometric authentication via facial recognition.
And to protect your privacy, it can be hidden behind a privacy shutter when not in use.
The chiclet keyboard can, of course, be backlit, which is handy for better key recognition in dimly lit environments.
It’s a shame, however, that it lacks a numeric keypad, a standard feature on 15-inch laptops, to facilitate number entry.
This 2-in-1 Ultrabook is well connected, with 2 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth 5.3 and Wi-Fi 6E ax modules (more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac) for wireless communication and remote connection, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a monitor or TV, for example, and an audio port, as well as 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) for transfer speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected.
