HP Envy x360 15 (W/ Core i7-7500U & GTX 940MX Review)

Rating: 7.0.

The latest laptop from HP is a high-quality unit that’s taking aim at creative types, media fans and home users – anyone really, who wants a versatile convertible machine that pairs power with style. As its name suggests, the HP Envy x360 has a hinge that spins its touchscreen through 360 degrees, so it can be used as a laptop or a tablet. The touchscreen comes with a stylus, so HP says it’s perfect for creative professionals who need to create detailed, accurate drawings.

The 15.6 inch design means there’s plenty of screen real estate, and HP hasn’t tried to make this machine impossibly slim and light – so it functions well as a laptop, too.

The HP Envy x360 costs £1,149, which plants it firmly in the middle of the notebook market – can it succeed against strong and versatile competition?

It has a 'gamer friendly' 120hz panel, but do the rest of the specs stack up?

    Excellent laptop. Powerful, great display, USB 3.0 and Type-C, wonderful keyboard and large touchpad. Not too keen on Windows 10.

    The only Achilles heel I see, using the 940MX instead of the MX150 (GT 1030 laptop)

  • Nikolas Karampelas

    I have burnt myself in the past with the hp pavilion, this look nice but I’m afraid to trust them 🙁

  • Jeffrey Miles

    This is actually a very good laptop – I rate it well. Its not too expensive either. some compromises in regards to performance but enough for what I would need on the move.

  • CWB

    It does say it has dual 940s though not just one. That should be more than enough to do anything you need to do and run any game you need to run.

  • Decends

    I think that might be a typo

  • Decends

    yea, pretty sure its a typo because it should be performing like a 950M if it was 2 940MX in sli in the 3dMark tests.

  • CWB

    Hmm, well thats a bummer it would rock if it had two 940s. I did the pounds to dollar conversion and it came up $1560.84, which isnt a lot of money to be honest for decent laptop now a days, so maybe its still a pretty good deal even with just one video card? Are we SURE its a typo?

  • Decends

    Yes, its a typo, i compared the benchmark scores it got in 3D mark and times spy to the scores a 950M got and it about half as fast as a 950M. 2 940MX’s would be 768 cores while a 950M is 640 cores. the 940mx in sli should be out performing a 950M in artficial benchmarks not scoring half. Also, at the price of 1560 USD, one can find a laptop with a I7 7700HQ and GTX 1060 or 1070 in it instead.

  • CWB

    Ok thank you Decends.

  • Decends
