HP Envy x360
The HP Envy x360 is a powerful Windows 10 laptop that also transforms into a tablet. If you think you might want to take notes with a digital pen or replace your existing tablet, this is the best college laptop for you.
The two dual hinges attached to the HP Envy x360’s keyboard deck are what allows you to fold the laptop’s 15.6-inch HD display backward and turn it into a tablet. The display has full support for touch and digital pens. Mainly, this tablet mode is for watching video, drawing or taking notes. At 4.79 pounds, it won't replace your Kindle for reading.
The Envy x360 weighs that much because it’s aluminum body holds a lot of hardware. There’s a very powerful Intel Core i7 processor inside. It comes with up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage with a second 128GB SSD to keep things loading quickly. If startup times aren’t that big of a concern for you, buy the model with 256GB of storage. Every HP Envy x360 has a USB 3.1 Type-C port for fast data transfers, 2 USB 3.1 ports, an HDMI port, a media card reader, two stereo speakers and a headset jack.
Expect roughly 9 hours and 45 minutes of battery life from the HP Envy x360. That’s less than other laptops in this collection, but long enough that you shouldn’t need to charge between every class.
