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?

Briony goes POSTAL – and cuts up GAMING CHAIRS!

Briony has reviewed a lot of gaming chairs in her time with KitGuru and she has always wanted to see what was inside them. She wanted to cut up her OWN 18 month old Noblechair - and we asked Noblechairs if they would like to come along when we cut the hell out of it with a stanley knife. They said 'sure no problem' we will bring you a new one too and watch you cut it up. We also bought a no name 'cheap' gaming chair from Amazon - just to see if there was any difference at all. Is it all a CON?
