The HP Spectre x360 has just been launched, sporting a slimmer body with a more powerful Intel Kaby Lake processor under the hood. Now in its third generation, the laptop has been more refined to be the best one yet.
The HP Spectre x360's chassis is still made of CNC-aluminum, but the measurements have been trimmed down from 12.79 x 0.24 in to 12.03 x 0.54 in, PC World reported. The weight also dropped from 3.17 pounds to 2.85 pounds. Despite the shaved off edges, it still sports the same 13.3-inch touch screen with 1,920 x 1,080 resolution.
HP Spectre x360 Internal Specs
The most notable upgrade in the HP Spectre x360's specs is the inclusion of the Intel Kaby Lake processor, making the sleeker laptop more powerful than ever. This also means that it will be able to manage its battery consumption better.
HP promises at least 25 percent boost in battery life, but this is also due to the new 57.8 watt-hour lithium polymer battery. The previous one, which is a 56 watt-hour battery pack, has about 12 hours of juice while the recent one can squeeze in 14 hours and 15 minutes.
HP Spectre x360 Other Additions
Other additions to the refreshed HP Spectre x360 include Thunderbolt 3, two USB Type-C ports and Windows Hello. The last of which enables users to sign in to their device with a look or a touch using the infra-red camera and without using passwords.
The HP Spectre x360 is also available in up to 512GB NVME SSD, which Ars Technica noted to be able to provide a boost in performance. Users can also enjoy the fast charging feature that provides 90 percent battery charge in 90 minutes of being plugged in.
The HP Spectre x360 is available now for a starting price of $1,049. Other configurations have not been announced at this time.
