With the ProBook x360 11 G7, HP has introduced a new convertible that is now available to buy on various online stores and should mainly be aimed at school children. However, the HP ProBook G7 only has very rudimentary features that should be suitable for everyday office and multimedia tasks.
The HP ProBook x360 11 G7 convertible should mainly be aimed at students with its specifications. This is now available to buy on Bhphotovideo.com, Amazon.com, and Newegg.com online stores for a minimum price of $349.
For this price, you get an 11.6-inch convertible with a TN display that has a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. There is a webcam on the upper edge of the display, but you shouldn’t expect too much from it. You can optionally buy the HP Pro Pen to write on the display.
Inside, HP installs either an Intel Celeron N5100, N4500, or Pentium Silver N6000 processor. Depending on the configuration, these processors are supported by 4/8 GB RAM and a 64 GB eMMC hard drive or a 128 or 256 GB SSD. With the built-in 48 Wh battery, the HP ProBook G7 should last up to 11.5 hours, whereby it can be charged to 90 percent within 90 minutes via USB Type C.
In terms of connections, there are two USB Type-A ports on the sides, a USB Type C port with Power Delivery and DisplayPort support, as well as an SD card reader and an audio output.
In summary, the HP ProBook x360 11 G7 is a fairly average convertible in its price range, which should mainly be aimed at students with its low price, slightly weaker hardware, and optional pen input.
Apart from this, the company has also upgraded one of its most versatile convertible Envy x360 15 2 in 1 Laptop with some design adjustments including a larger trackpad, which offers impressive features, including a 4K OLED touchscreen with slim bezels and an Nvidia GeForce GPU.
