HP Spectre X360 Makes A Great Case For The Best 2-in-1 Laptop Today
The 2-in-1 laptop system is not going anywhere just yet and we have to thank the likes of HP Spectre X360 why it is still going strong. HP's 2-in-1 device is a gorgeous and well-performing machine with few bad things that can be said about it.
Design and Display
HP's tagline for the Spectre X360 is "Power never looked so thin". Thin is the keyword here when discussing the laptop's impressive design. HP managed to lessen the metal on the machine giving it a slimmer and minimalist yet chic look. The 15.6-inch variant is only 0.7 inches thick and weighs 4.42 pounds while the smaller model measures 12.03 x 8.58 x 0.54 inches and weighs 2.8 pounds. The smaller variant is perfect for people on the move. It also sports the new magnificent-looking Ash Silver paint job which is more like copper and black.
The only thing that needs some improvement with the Spectre X360's hardware is the hinge. It needs to be a little bit tighter or stiffer as the screen shifts out of position while walking.
The HP Spectre X360 15-inch model supports 4K with its much-improved pixel resolution - from 1920 x 2160 in last year's model to 3840 x 2160 in the 2017 version. Even better is the slimmer bezels on the sides which make the viewing experience feels like that of a widescreen TV. The 13.3-inch variant comes with a full-HD display as well as thin bezels.
The 2017 Spectre X360 runs on either Core i5 or i7 Intel 7th-Generation Kaby Lake processor. It also has 16GB of RAM and 512GB PCLe SSD. These features allow smooth and powerful performance. As a matter of fact, its 7,933 Geekbench 3 score is 16 percent better than its predecessor and even better than the Samsung Notebook 9, Lenovo Yoga 900, and Yoga 900S.
The Spectre X360's battery lasts for 13 hours, according to HP. That's because it uses a larger six-celled lithium-ion battery with 79.2Wh. As VentureBeat noted, it also supports fast charging as is supposedly capable of charging up to 50 percent in just 30 minutes. Venturebeat reported that the 15.6-inch version it tested lasted for nine hours while doing mainly normal tasks. What's more impressive was that the laptop did not get too hot or noisy despite the prolonged use.
The audio for the 2017 HP Spectre X360 was provided by Bang & Olufsen. The four-speaker setup has two under the grille and the other two on each side of the device's bottom. The strategic location of the speakers gives off a fuller sound and allows one to immerse into the music or sound if the listener's watching a video.
The 2017 HP Spectre X360 has a base price of $1,050 which is good value for something as impressive and beautiful as it is. More premium models, those that carry Intel's Core i7 CPU and bigger storage go for $1,160 to $1,300.
