HP Pavilion 11 x360 Review

I usually don’t review hardware products but I felt a need to review HP’s Pavilion 11t-n000 x360.   

My father-in-law wanted a Microsoft Surface but still wanted a keyboard and the functionality of a laptop.   He also wanted to avoid the expense of a Microsoft Surface and wanted something with a small profile, light weight, lots of storage and plenty of ram for traveling.  He found the HP Pavilion 11 x360 that has the following features:

  • Quad core Pentium 2.17 Ghz
  • Windows 8.1 64bit
  • 4 GB DDR3 
  • 500 GB HD 
  • Beats Audio
  • less than 1″ profile
  • Screen 11.6″ (Touchscreen)
  • Gyros built in
  • 1 -USB 3.0
  • 2 -USB 2.0
  • Wireless 802.11
    • Miracast compatible 
  • Ethernet Port
  • 5 hour battery life (45 watt AC adapter)
  • SD Mediacard Reader
  • 12.12 x 8.46 x 0.86 in 
  • 3.08 lbs
  • HDMI
  • TruVision Webcam
  • 1 year warranty

I expected the laptop (netbook?) to be slow.  I was surprised at how responsive it was with 4GB of RAM.  It is by no means a powerful gaming computer but is a match for home, business or school users.   The pc is upgradeable to 8GB and a hybrid hard drive which would make a difference in performance.  Is this necessary for the typical user?  Probably not.

Once you setup a Microsoft account, Windows 8.1 has the Microsoft store (which now has over 400,000 apps ) and OneDrive to backup and sync pictures, files and more. 

With the HP Pavilion 11, you can fold the keyboard to have a tablet or you can flip the keyboard down and use the pc in ‘tent’ mode so it supports the tablet functionality.   Folding the keyboard under the touchscreen gives you a tablet.   The touchscreen is very responsive to the slightest touch.

At $399,  I don’t know why you would buy a laptop or a tablet.
