Summary: Costing less than $400, the HP Pavilion x360 provides a solid Windows 8.1 experience complete with a flexible multimode design, loud speakers and a responsive keyboard. The Dim display at 1366 x 768 is very disappointing, and add to the grief, the battery will not even get you thru a day of work.
Summary: There are a few ways to think about the HP Pavilion x360. If you think of it as a cheap Windows notebook with decent performance and the added bonus of a tablet mode which you might use from time to time, it’s a pretty good machine… although not necessarily the cheapest or most compact option for...
Excerpt: Last fall Judie reviewed the Lenovo Yoga. As a laptop that could also work in a variety of modes that took advantage of its touchscreen, it was impressive. I tried it out in December, and was also impressed, but at $1000+, it was pricey.
Pros: Nicely priced; Offers four “use” modes; 500GB hard drive; Lovely keyboard
Cons: Poor battery life; Ships with 4 or 8GB of RAM only; Not the more refined design; Older/slower components
Conclusion: It's really too bad the HP Pavilion x360 suffers from poor battery life because it brings a lot to the budget hybrid table—good looks, solid build quality, a comfortable keyboard and touch pad, and impressive audio output.
Summary: Lenovo's Yoga 2 11 is a better alternative, providing longer battery life, a brighter display and similarly dynamic design for as low as $435. We still prefer the x360's speakers and keyboard, so choosing between the two affordable hybrids comes down to what features matter most to you.

Summary: HP's Pavilion x360 is a hybrid laptop for budget users. It can be easily turned into a tablet, and it has a good set of built-in features. It's screen isn't great, though, and you won't get too much performance and battery life out of it.
Pros: Strong and vibrant design, Good built-in features, Comfortable keyboard
Cons: Battery life is short, Screen can be hard to view in tablet mode, Feels heavy as a tablet
Conclusion: Conceptually the HP Pavilion x360 gets a lot right. It's got full Windows 8.1, it's affordable, has plenty of physical connection ports, makes light work of typing, and the multi-positional screen idea is integrated well, even if it's not an entirely original concept.
Pros: Looks pretty nifty in red, affordable for Windows 8.1, 360-degree concept is interesting, enough connection ports
Cons: Poor screen viewing angle, limited battery life, low resolution display, big screen bezel, bulky and heavy as a tablet-esque device, can be slow in use
