The HP Pavilion x360 15-er1006nf against the competition
The HP Pavilion x360 15-er1006nf is currently: for sale by HP France and is positioned as one of the few in its category to offer such a powerful graphics solution with such a recent processor with such a large number of cores.
Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Pavilion x360 15-er1006nf
This hybrid laptop with a thin and light Natural Silver design that can be charged to 50% in 45 minutes, opens 360° to convert into a tablet and has an elegant, sober and original look.
Indeed, the screen uses multi-touch touch technology, enough to interact with the system and software simply by placing at least one finger on it, and this through gestures / pressing.
Due to the tactile aspect, the screen is glossy and therefore gives punch to the colors, but in return is subject to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Thanks to the IPS technology, the screen also has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles. Too bad that the colorimetry is on average lower than that of high-end IPS panels. With its 16:9 format and Full HD definition, the screen is also excellent for displaying videos and wider High Definition content.
Because a fingerprint reader is integrated, you can authenticate through biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology.
It is of course possible to illuminate the keys of the chiclet keyboard to better distinguish them in limited ambient light.
The connectivity integrated into this versatile 2-in-1 Ultrabook is good, consisting of 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than wifi ac) and Bluetooth 5.2 for remote connections and communication, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to, for example, a TV or monitor, an audio port or even 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) that transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when USB 3.0 devices are connected.
Performance, autonomy of the HP Pavilion x360 15-er1006nf
The HP Pavilion x360 15-er1006nf is a thin and light 15-inch high-definition laptop that converts into a tablet designed for versatile everyday mobile use.
It’s built around 16GB of sizable RAM and an Intel Hybrid Core i7-1255U Alder Lake-U processor. Thus, it delivers good overall performance capable of satisfying a number of users.
Those who want to perform modest multimedia work with RAM and multicores – and thus the 10 cores of the Core i7 – can settle for this duo, for example for video encoding or photo editing.
However, to often perform processing that requires processor and/or graphics resources, it is better to opt for a PC based on a non-low-power processor and/or a suitable dedicated graphics card.
Because there is no dedicated graphics card on board here. Despite everything, you can view photos and videos, as well as play titles that do not consume too much graphics resources thanks to the Intel Iris Xe graphics solution integrated in the Core i7 Alder Lake-U.
On the storage side there is a 512 GB SSD, a capacity in line with the standard of hard drives. But compared to this, an SSD is quiet, less power-consuming, more robust, and much faster.

In practice, the SSD therefore provides a much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, the start/stops, processing and launches of applications, for example, are faster and we reach the cards of online games faster.
Of course, if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit, such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device, which is an interesting solution for getting fast transfers.
As for autonomy, bet about 7 hours of battery life with light use for this versatile hybrid 2-in-1 Ultrabook that converts into a tablet with an elegant silver design whose transport is facilitated by its finesse and controlled weight.
