A lot of people are constantly on the go and need a device which can keep them entertained when travelling but also provide enough processing power to allow them to take care of some of their daily tasks. If it also sports an affordable price tag, it’s more than great. One of the devices that fits in this category is the HP Pavilion x360 11-k120nr, a convertible, compact laptop.
Powered by an Intel Pentium N3700 mobile processor, with four cores running at 1.6 GHz and Burst Performance technology, alongside 4 GB of RAM, it’s powerful enough for your every day tasks, like browsing the web or consuming media.
Since it’s a cheap model, it has just an Intel HD Graphics chip, with shared video memory, but it’s good enough to deliver a decent image quality.
As for the storage capacity, the HP Pavilion x360 11-k120nr has a 500 GB hard disk drive, great for housing files like photos, music or videos. The HP 3D DriveGuard 6 safeguards data against accidental bumps.
Of course, there might be a couple of users who want more storage space, so, besides opting for cloud services, you can use an external HDD, which can be connected through one of the three USB ports (2 x 3.0 and 1 x 2.0). The laptop also features a built-in media reader, perfect for transferring photos from a camera or a smartphone.
The connectivity suite consists in an HDMI output, perfect for connecting the laptop to a bigger display. It also has high-speed wireless LAN and a Fast Ethernet LAN port, for quick Web access. Also, the Bluetooth 4.0 interface is great for syncing it with compatible devices, like smartphones or tablets.
Moving on to the display, the HP Pavilion x360 11-k120nr is using a 11.6″ WLED-backlit touchscreen panel, with a typical HD ready 1366 x 768 pixels resolution. Still, compared to a regular 15.6″ laptop, which shares the same resolution, the image quality is better, due to an increased pixel density. The IPS technology allows you to enjoy wide viewing angles. The Bang and Olufsen dual speakers provide clear, high quality audio.
Like mentioned above, this compact device can be an excellent travel partner, perfect for consuming media on the go, whether you use it as a tablet or a laptop, thanks to the 360 hinge. It measures just 0.89″ in thickness and weighs 3.21 lbs, being very easy to carry around. Finally, the Natural Silver finish give is a very elegant look, even though it’s a relatively cheap model.
The HP Pavilion x360 11-k120nr is available for $429.99, with a pre-installed copy of Windows 10 and a multimedia software package included, featuring titles like CyberLink YouCam, PhotoDirector and PowerDirector.
A great choice for anybody who wants both the functionality of a laptop and the portability of a tablet, but without breaking the bank!
