HP launches this month of July, the second generation of its convertible laptop HP Pavilion x360 with sizes 11 and 13 inches. These models feature a rotating screen that can be folded up to 360 degrees and a touch panel to maximize the possibilities of Windows 8 platform (and Windows 10 since its release in a couple of weeks). All with a very colorful design in various colors and with a restrained price is another of its great attractions. And the HP Pavilion 11-inch x360 part of the 480 euros, while the HP Pavilion 13-inch x360 raises its price to 600 euros. We tell you all the details on these laptops.
We started the review with the 11-inch model. This configuration uses a 11.6-inch panel with a standard resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. This resolution provides a good level of detail for normal applications and surf the net, but we can throw in need a little more detail when watching movies or videos in high quality YouTube. In its bowels are an Intel Celeron N3050 dual core processor with a power of 1.6 GHz per core (this speed can be up to 2.16 GHz). This chip is combined with a good 4 GB of RAM to run more processes without slowing down the computer.
In the field of memory, a hard disk is used in standard format of 500 GB to store more personal files and applications. One of the big surprises that leaves us this model are its connections. And it is that despite reaching a more compact format, this equipment includes a complete set. So, we have two USB 3.0 ports and a high speed USB 2.0 standard. We also have an HDMI port to transmit the contents to a monitor or TV and even an Ethernet port to connect the laptop to the network via cable. The connections are completed with WiFi and Bluetooth.
All with a design that dominates the numerous colorful color settings and weighing 1.41 kilos, a competitive figure although somewhat above higher-end models. The HP Pavilion x360 arrive in the coming days for a price of 480 euros.

The second model will arrive in the coming days is the HP Stream x360 13 inches. The concept of notebook stays in touch swivel screen (360 degrees) that can either serve as a portable as a tablet (yes, large format). Its 13.3-inch panel has a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. One of the main differences from the 11-inch model can be found in your processor, as this model makes the leap to an Intel Core i5-5200U fifth-generation chip with two cores and a speed of 2.2 GHz. Thanks to the Intel integrated technologies can take this speed to 2.7 GHz and actually work as if we counted four cores. Moreover, both memory and the connection set are the same as his younger brother. HP has also revealed in this case a battery pack to operate the equipment up to nine hours without searching for a plug. The HP 13-inch x360 Stream is priced at 600 euros.
