    For a long business travel I have to make I need a 14 inch laptop with the following requirements :

    Must be very portable.
    Must run games at lower settings decently.
    Battery must last for very long.
    The panel must be IPS and 1080p, 95+ sRGB coverage preferred for photo editing.
    2 in 1 is preferred due to the versatility and more confortable to use on a plane seat tray.
    Preferably less than 900€ including taxes.

    After much research, these options are available in my country (Spain)

    HP Pavilion x360 14-DH0006NS (949€)

    Pros:

    2 in 1.
    MX250 Dedicated card.
    Powerful CPU.
    Motherboard can be upgraded to dual channel RAM.
    Full size SD card reader.

    Cons:

    Slightly over budget.
    Integrated GPU is bad.
    Color gamut coverage is poor.

    HP Pavilion 14-ce3005ns (823€)

    Pros:

    Both MX250 and Intel Iris GPU.
    Powerful CPU.
    Full size SD card reader.

    Cons:

    Not 2 in 1
    Color gamut coverage is poor

    Doubts:

    Single channel memory only?

    HP ENVY X360 13-ar0002ns (741€)

    Pros:

    2 in 1.
    Great display.
    Very thin and light.
    Beautiful design.
    Powerful CPU.
    Powerful iGPU.
    Great battery life.
    Better price.

    Cons:

    13 Inch.
    No dedicated GPU.
    Soldered RAM. 8 gig not enough.

    Doubts:

    Single channel memory only?

    Additionally I was considering the Lenovo Flex 14 2-in-1, but this model is not available in my country. Is it good to purchase one on the USA? Any retailers recommended aside from Amazon?

    Can someone recommend other models from other brands?

    Thanks!!

    A Flex bought in the US and shipped to Spain, is unlikely to have warranty in Spain. Of the three you listed, option three looks the best to me.

    Today after much pondering I though in getting a 3700u equipped Flex 14 through Adorama. If not, I could get a 3500u Flex 14 through Amazon (better for returns and such). Of course, warranty claims are basically an ocean away, but the price difference is worth it (bearing import taxes and such in mind).
