The BEST Laptop Gift for Students – HP ENVY x360

by birtanpublished on August 17, 2020

Hey guys what's going on it's Karl here back with another holiday episode and coming at you with one of my best recommendations for students specifically in the laptop game so if you're in school heading back to school or just thinking about brushing up your

Knowledge this episodes for you because I know a ton of you are students we've got on deck today the HP Envy 360 and big shout outs to HP for partnering with me on today's episode they wanted to give a lot of you guys a bit more value

Especially in your holiday shopping no one wants to spend seven eight thousand dollars on a computer like we've seen these guys here well under a thousand bucks even for a 15-inch model all links of course down below let's get into this

15-inch beast and the envy series really focuses on keeping costs down without trying to sacrifice too much you've still got a great build quality aluminum chassis the hinge mechanism is really good you can of course open the laptop

With one hand which I know is a big deal having a 15-inch display is really made for media consumption and I get that most students won't have dedicated desktops or save monitors that they can plug this guy into back in their dorm

Rooms I personally had a 15-inch laptop when I was in school and the envy isn't too heavy so you can definitely lug it around from hosta class still and because it's a flip laptop I actually prefer it to be in a larger 15-inch over

Say a 13 inch form factor that's because I can use it eight in laptop mode this is where I'm crunching emails writing documents writing at those essays and even though it is a full touch display in laptop mode you can see that there's

A bit of wiggle or travel with it that's when you kind of flip it to its second orientation which is tenth mode and this is where you can use this guy for a ton of meaty consumption and when you want you can always use it

In tablet mode this is probably the orientation which I use it in least it still feels a tad bit weird having such a large device with of course the keyboard still on the back but it's nice that you have all of those options to

Use this guy in it does come with some awesome audio as well they're made with Bang & Olufsen you can see the giant grille up at the front and especially for this size and more importantly for this price category this

Is one of the best sounding laptops for its class the keyboard because we don't have dedicated speakers on the sides it's one of the most spaced out keyboards that I've had the chance to use especially in

A laptop they've got a ton of throw on the keys especially if you're coming from save butterfly switches the travel on these is such a pleasure to use you've got a full numpad and maybe the trackpad could be a tad bit larger it's

Maybe the one thing that I didn't prove on the build of this guy still totally fine though you've got a ton of feedback and you've got a fingerprint sensor on the right hand side for security and speaking to privacy very important of

Course in school it actually has a really interesting kill switch for the webcam so no more pieces of tape over this guy it's got a dedicated switch on the side you'll see that little icon on the screen go off to let you know when

The webcam is off and when you've got apps launched like say Skype it just appears black when you've got the kill switch activated performance really depends how you end up specking this guy I've gone for the base end here so it's

The core i5 it's the 10th gen eight gigs of RAM but if you have that extra bit of coin laying around upgrade that to 16 gig set go such a long way 512 SSD and you can also spec that down to say 256 if you want to have external storage or

Use a ton of services on the cloud performance you're gonna struggle to say edit of course a 4k YouTube video but obviously this isn't what this guy is for it can still totally handle Photoshop Lightroom edits you can get by

Like gaming so if you're playing Starcraft 2 over watch this guy will be totally fine but more graphic intensive games you'll obviously be looking for a different device you have to remember though that this is well under that

$1,000 price range and it still has a ton of i/o support on the side and I think something students really value transferring essays on USB sticks Hecht even having a full HDMI port when you're

Presenting using PowerPoint the end these being a great device one of the best flip laptops and as we approach the holidays I think this will be a solid pick for anyone in the school mood or school season it's been dope and if

You're a student in school in the need of a laptop let me know I'll try to hook you guys up with this Envy hope you're all enjoying the holidays and of course if you are a student good luck with your exams I hated this time of the year

Catch you guys in one of my next ones face
