If you have a student headed to high school, off to college, travel, or even their first job, why not put the power to succeed in their hands? You can do it with the HP  13″ Pavilion x360 13.3 Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Notebook.

For under $800, your student will get a powerful touchscreen laptop with a powerful Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory and a 128GB SSD.

This is a serious (and ood-looking) laptop for serious students — like yours, of course! It has a 13.3″ full HD (1920 x 1080) screen that is begging to be touched. That, however, is just the beginning. You see, this isn’t just a laptop. Thanks to the 360º flip-and-fold design, this computer offers much more than a traditional laptop, in fact, one could argue this is four products in one.

In laptop mode, you get a gorgeous screen, a roomy keyboard, and a sizable trackpad. With a powerful processor and 128GB od solid state storage (SSD), your student will pound out that research paper without a bit of computer lag. But because of the 360º flip-and-fold design, you get three more modes that go far beyond what any traditional laptop can do.

Tablet Mode: By flipping the keyboard all the way to sit flush with the bottom of the display, you get a 13.3″ tablet with a gorgeous touch screen. This mode gives you a tablet running full Windows 10, and that’s a tablet that will let you get things done!

Tent Mode: By flipping the keyboard around  — but stopping some inches before it sits flush on the back — you get a method that lets you set the computer up on the front edge of the keyboard and screen. This gives you a screen that sits on its own at an angle that is ideal for watching movies. After all, even students need a break from their studies; with a screen like the one on this laptop, movies will come to life.

Stand Mode: Don’t feel like setting your laptop on its edges to watch a movie? Try stand mode. In this mode, the keyboard is flipped around and placed on a flat surface. Now, the screen is pointed into the air, and it can be adjusted to get the best viewing angle possible. This is perfect for distraction-free PowerPoint demos and movies.

Four modes in one, all for under $800. Students will appreciate this kind of power and flexibility, whether they are working on a term paper or sending you emails from Prague. But the specs don’t stop there. This 3.48-pound laptop is just .8″ thin and has two USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0 port for ultimate connectivity.

Thanks to the built-in Bang & Olufsen audio, your student will enjoy great sound when watching movies or listening to their favorite music — whether they are in a dorm, on a train, or in a hostel.

But there’s more. The HP 13″ Pavilion x360 also has an HDMI port (perfect for connecting the laptop to an outside monitor or TV screen), a built-in SD card reader, dual-band wireless connectivity, a built-in HD webcam with two microphones, and a backlit keyboard.

Yes, this is a serious computing package for the serious student or intrepid traveler. And at under $800, you might even want to consider one for yourself!
