Design & Port Selection:

Here except for a few small things the nvx 360's design is absolutely amazing it has got all that you would want from a portable 13 inches machine everything from the lid the keyboard deck to the base of this laptop is made from aluminum actually recycled.

Aluminum to be exact if you ask me besides all the performance and experience upgrades sustainable manufacturing is another key area that Hardware makers should be focusing on and I am glad to see HP on this very bad and the use of such recycled materials has not made this laptop any less premium to hold either I love

How the sand based finish on both the cover and the keyboard deck feels super nice tolay your hands on and also how it keeps fingerprint smudges in check it weighs around 1.3 kgs 


Which makes the nvx 360 super comfortable to carry to your office or college too I also like how HP is a clean and premium design has been complemented with great durability here there's minimal Flex on the lid or anywhere else on this laptop and this 360 degree hinge does not show any signs of weakness as well

Even the port selection is amazing on this thing you get two Thunderbolt 4 connections on the right then you have a couple of USB 3.2 Gen 2 type A ports on either side a micro SDK guide reader and a 3.5 mm

Audio jack as you can see HP has protected the USB a ports here with uh covers thingy which helps you maintain the laptop's theme profile but sadly this also means that I have to lift the laptop up almost every time I need to plug in anything with a USB a connection.


Display:

HP lets you pick from three display options for this year's nvx360 I've been using the base variant with a 13.3 inches glossy IPS panel a tall 16s to 10 aspect ratio and 1200p resolution.

Whereas you can also get it with a sharper 1600p screen other than this there's an OLED option with an even sharper 2.8 K resolution and a low blue light filter if you can push the budget.


The OLED variant will give you the best visual experience out of all the three choices but this IPS panel should be just fine for most people you get 100 srgb color coverage here alongside 77 Adobe RGB and 78 DCI P3 gamut.

 So whether you're browsing the web streaming a video or sketching your next art project this screen is not going to disappoint this screen gets bright enough for outdoor usage to hitting 466 nits at 100 which is actually quite higher than the official claim of 400 nits as far as the touchscreen experience is concerned it's great.


Keyboard:

The most part this backlit keyboard is fairly nice too the keys don't feel crammed in and they have a nice texture and travel distance for AG assuring tapping experience but I am not a fan of how loud they sound.

Trackpad:

it's plastic trackpad does the job fine enough as well you may notice a bit of friction especially when using three or four finger gestures but I won't say that is a deal breaker in any way okay.

Speakers:

The audio quality of this laptop actually surprised me HP has gone with a usual set of downward firing speakers here tuned by bang Olufsen that sound pretty decent with some tuning and tweaking its Sound Stage also feels wide and with Rich details except in terms of low frequencies this 5 megapixel infrared.

Webcam is also easily the best I've seen on a Windows machine in a long long time it delivers great picture quality with nice details and highlights the audio pickup is also pretty awesome and this camera even enables features like Auto frame which keeps you at the center of the frame all the time just like center stage on Apple's iPads.


Performance:

The performance the nvx 360 can be configured with an Intel Core I5 1230u or a core i7 1250u processor these Intel chips with use suffix prioritize power efficiency over Pure Performance they're both 10 core processors with two performance and 8 efficiency cores but with just 9 watt of Base power.

These CPUs are not meant to handle any kind of demanding workflows you can however expect Snappy everyday performance here including web browsing using office suite of applications and stuff alongside the quietest coolest thermals and the best battery life long story.


Short I don't have any major issues with the performance of the nvx 360. I'm using the core i7 variant which has slightly higher clock speeds and more powerful Iris XE integrated Graphics but the core i5 model won't be drastically underpowered at all


However when putting it against some relatively resource heavy apps I did notice mild slowdowns  in Adobe Photoshop for example applying content aware fill or using object selection tool takes just a tad bit longer than you would expect 

Since the base configuration of the nvx 360 comes with just a GB of RAM I need to reload a few Chrome tabs every now and then after keeping them idle for a wet so yeah if you're looking to buy this laptop I would highly recommend getting the one bit 16 GB Ram because like most two in one notebooks.
