The Pavilion x360 is yet another 11-inch device looking to combine the work capabilities of a laptop with the comfort and intimacy of a tablet. The screen even folds back to let you switch between the two modes, just like Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga 2 11. Unfortunately, the x360 is all style with very little substance.

The x360 certainly looks good, with PC World noting that its "striking, slightly glittery, red chassis wowed me as soon as I opened the box." PC Mag compared it to a "flashy convertible automobile" and CNET says the x360's "rounded corners and playful design gives it an accessible, consumer-gadget feel." And no need to worry about the hinge, which PC World says "is nothing if not sturdy." But the screen doesn't live up to the x360's otherwise good looks, delivering a 1366 x 768 resolution that Trusted Reviews says "means immediate compromise," while Laptop Magazine calls the image quality "serviceable" and "a bit too dim for our liking." CNET says its "excessively glossy overlay" helps make it "virtually unusable, even in modest sunlight" and ultimately, the display "could be a dealbreaker."

The HP Pavilion x360 is a convertible hybrid laptop that flips its touch screen around to act like a slate tablet. It has an entry-level price, making it a good system for the Windows 8 novice.

The pretty red color and solid build are not enough to make up for the x360's chunky form factor, lackluster display, and poor battery life.

For less than $400, the HP Pavilion x360 ($484 as reviewed) provides a solid Windows 8.1 experience, complete with a flexible multimode design, loud speakers and a responsive keyboard. However, the notebook's dim 11.6-inch, 1366 x 768 display is underwhelming, as is its short battery life.

HP's Pavilion x360 adds Beats Audio (for now) and rugged construction to the expanding field of 11-inch Yoga-likes, but Lenovo's version feels much more upscale.

We're in the post-PC era, but in this period of transition the Pavilion x360 fails to enhance what is already on offer in the market. It just seems to just dilute it.

A direct competitor to Lenovo's Yoga 2 11, the HP Pavilion x360 convertible oozes charm. But this budget hybrid is hamstrung by its tiny battery.

We like the HP’s divisive red design, and its hinged mechanism and build quality are both good, but this budget system is too slow to rival the superior Asus Transformer Book T100.

You can use it in regular laptop mode or flip the screen around and perch it on the table tent-style to use it in a more tablet-like fashion ... it seemed to work well on basic tasks, and the 1,366 x 768 IPS touchscreen was bright and responsive.

The x360 has a really great price point and user modes, but we can't help but be disappointed with the relative lack of power. We know it's a budget device, but we'd certainly rather pay a little more for a tad more get-up-and-go.

HP offers good bang for your buck with this 11.6-inch laptop hybrid. I like the funky design and oodles of connectivity and, if you’re not too fussed about a pin-sharp screen, then it may be just right for you.
