A laptop plays many crucial roles in our everyday lives. It’s a trusted travel companion, a workspace, a writing aid, a canvas. It’s a study guide, and a classroom assistant. It’s a lifeline to our social lives, to the news, to Game of Thrones.
As arguably the most important piece of technology that we use on a daily basis, choosing the right laptop for your lifestyle is a weighty decision. But there’s one laptop on the market that can accommodate any and all of your creative, technical, professional, and academic needs: Here’s how the HP Pavilion x360 fits into four very different lifestyles — as it will surely fit into yours.
The jet-setting travel blogger
You’re a content-creating machine, churning out articles, photo essays, and vlogs on practically an hourly basis. As a frequent traveler, you appreciate better than most the beauty of items with two-in-one functionalities. After all, carry-on space is a precious commodity — and nothing beats a travel pillow that’s also a phone charger.
As one of the premier two-in-one laptops available, the HP Pavilion x360 easily transitions from serious work laptop (for when you need to set up shop in a local cafe to meet a fast-approaching deadline), to tablet (for when you’ve got 14 hours on a plane to kill and are in desperate need of entertainment). With diagonal HD touch display, the device makes photo management, storage, and editing easier than ever — so you can manage your entire Instagram outtake library faster than you can say “hot dogs or legs?”
The Inking feature is particularly handy for journaling: Jot notes directly onto the screen in the early stages of your creative process, and supplement with hand-drawn designs that add creative flair. You’ve never experienced easier edits, either: Screen capture your first drafts, mark them up, and fire them off to your editor instantly.
The over-scheduled university student
The world is your oyster, even if all you can afford for dinner is ramen and store-brand soda. Between classes, volunteering, running the university’s sustainability program, and a sometimes overwhelming social scene (and also occasionally remembering to video chat with mom), you’ve got a packed schedule. Now is the time for exploring your passions and figuring out who (and what) you want to be in the “real world” — oh, and remembering to have a little fun along the way.
Use the HP Active Pen to scrawl notes in class, create presentations that will blow your professors away, and send hand-drawn doodles to your BFFs on their birthdays. The laptop’s rich audio capabilities also mean that any small group study session can easily transition into a dorm-room dance party.

Despite the fact that you hold a degree in accounting, you’ve long dreamed about a career in the arts. These days, all your time and effort goes into your Etsy shop and the website you’re designing to promote your handmade jewelry line — and you’re one step closer to leaving your agonizing day job once and for all.
Just as you understand the art of work-life balance, you’ll appreciate the HP Pavilion x360’s perfect blend of performance and style. From fiddling around with your new logo design to typing out 200 versions of your elevator pitch, this laptop is a trusty sidekick for your entire side-hustling to-do list. Manage expenses, track sales, and begin developing your marketing game-plan with easy integration with Microsoft Office as well as with apps like OneNote and PowerPoint.
The take-no-prisoners startup CEO
You’re all about the hustle, all day, every day. Efficiency is your favorite word in the English language, right up there with “disruption” and “innovate.” Your product is going to change the world — as soon as you’re able to get an office space outside of mom’s garage.
The x360 has ample ports, so your work set-up can be as complex as you’d like: The laptop comes equipped with three USB ports (two 3.0 and one 2.0), a full HDMI port, an Ethernet port, and jacks for headphones and power cords.
For your purposes, speed, storage, and serious battery life are musts in a laptop, and the HP x360 delivers on all fronts. The most robust model of the Pavilion x360 includes an Intel Core i7-7500U processor and 8 gigabytes of RAM — so you know you’ve got the brawn to keep chugging during those 18-hour days. If only you could find a co-founder this reliable.
From work to play and everything in between, the HP Pavilion x360 is the sidekick you can count on — no matter the lifestyle you lead.
