HP’s latest Pavilion x360 laptops are coming in May and the smallest, cheapest model of the bunch is also the only one to feature a fanless design.

The HP Pavilion x360 11 is a convertible notebook with an 11.6 inch touchscreen display, an Intel Pentium Silver N5000 quad-core Gemini Lake processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of solid state storage. It measures 11.” x 7.7″ x 0.7″ and weighs about 2.7 pounds, and HP says the notebook will sell for $400 and up when it goes on sale in May.

The laptop’s 6 watt processor, limited RAM, and 1366 x 768 pixel display put the Pavilion x360 11 clearly in budget laptop territory. But the touchscreen display, 360-degree hinge that lets you use it as a tablet, and 128GB of M.2 SSD storage put the new laptop a step or two above other low-cost laptops.

I’ve also found the Pentium Silver N5000 processor to be pretty decent for basic computing tasks, although I’d recommend something more powerful if you’re looking for a gaming PC or a video editing workstation.

The HP Pavilion x360 11 features 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2, a USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1 (5Gb/s) port, two USB 3.1 Type-A Gen 1 ports, an HDMI port, a headset jack, and a microSD card reader.

The notebook features a 37.69 Wh battery and comes with a 45 watt power adapter. It also has stereo speakers with B&O audio and HP will offer the Pavilion x360 11 in gray or silver color options.

  1. …and it still doesn’t seem to charge over USB C. Am I missing something, why isn’t this standard on all ‘thin and lights’ by now?

    1. Charge over USB-A or USB-C isn’t something you want in your laptop.

      All the laptops that I have seen that included this, axed the dedicated power port, but didn’t bother including an extra USB port. So you lose a USB port when needing to charge, and a dongle is not an acceptable solution. On top of that, I’ve also noticed the USB-port cannot charge as fast the dedicated power ports, and tends to get a bit warmer too.

      I’d be all over the shop for this feature, if it wasn’t for the fact that OEMs are blindly following “me too” Apple and making the user experience worse by conforming to the Dongle Life. Even stupider when they try to rationalise such decisions as for aesthetic reasons, but then go ahead and put cheap plastic over the chassis with a million stickers around.
