After 2 long years, I finally decided to upgrade my broken laptop. Yes it was only 2 years spent. I should’ve given my old Lenovo G4080 the love it deserved but I took it for granted. The letters in the keyboard popped out, the trackpad broke, and I wasn’t satisfied with the screen resolution. It lacked saturation. Today I’ll be giving you a hands-on review on HP Pavilion x360 from a regular, semi-technical, blogger’s point of view. (Further Reading: When Should You Replace Your Laptop)

I scored a deal at Laptop Factory and got it for only 33,000php. It originally costs 49,000php in malls. Hooray!

LAPTOP REVIEW: HP Pavilion x360 m3-u103dx

Here are the deciding factors while I was looking for a laptop:

  1. Above average screen resolution and good saturation of colors. Preferably HD
  2. Lght. Weighs at least 2lbs and below.
  3. Minimum of core i5
  4. Must have HUGE memory and speed
  5. Stylish and Classy

  • Above average screen resolution and good saturation of colors. Preferably HDCHECK!
  • Light. Weighs at least 2lbs and below. CHECK! It only weighs 1.3lbs and I can carry it with one hand
  • Minimum of core i5 – CHECK!
  • Must have HUGE memory and speed It’s fast because it uses SSD not HDD. But the consequence? It only has 128GB internal memory. I have to buy a separate external hard disk to put in my files
  • Stylish and ClassyCHECK! It comes in gold, sleek, and can even bend 360. (but who would that anyway?)

As an added bonus, you can fold it like this and use it as a tablet because it’s also touchscreen. But I never do that and only folded it this way to show you in the photos. It feels weird to use it as a tablet when you can feel the keyboard underneath. Talk about awkwardddd. I carry it all the time in my knapsack and oh boy it felt a lot better compared to my old Lenovo. It’s lightweight. Almost as light as my old Mac Airbook. If you’re looking for a travel-friendly laptop. I highly recommend this one. Battery life is also wonderful. It can last up to 4 hours on me with maximum usage of internet, editing, and videos. Cheers!

    I own an HP laptop myself too Ate and I love it! It is an old one though, HP TouchSmart tm2, but SSD upgraded. 🙂 What I just don’t like with touchscreen laptop is that the color vary than the original one. My fiance also have an HP, but he uses an external monitor to tweak photos in Adobe Lightroom. But so far, we love it. 🙂

    Ang mahal! Haha. Yun laptop ko less than 20k lang. For basic internet use lang, homeworks and projects ganun. Siguro kung seseryosohin ko ang blogging, baka mas mahal na bilhin ko. For now, mag-drool na lang muna ako sa laptop mo! =)
