A premium hybrid windows laptop
Its\’ the time for convertibles, especially when the newest iteration of windows supports it to the optimum level. Yet again some go hybrid and HP has gone a tad bit premium with their newest Spectre X360. When something demands a hefty price tag, the question arises – is it worth it?
13.3 inches touch screen, 1920 x 1080, Windows (8), Core i7, 8 GB RAM, SSD (128 GB), Up to 12.5 hours Battery
¢ Superb Built quality with aluminum casing and metal all around with unique design that allows for tablet functionality when folded all the way back thereby earning the 360 tag.
¢ Impressive hardware translates into an amazing performer both as a laptop and a touch screen unit.
¢ Various modes allow for flexible usage with great touch screen capabilities.
¢ Bright display and stereo speakers translate into an amazing multimedia package.
¢ Impressive battery life allows for long usage hours.
¢ Large trackpad is mostly inaccurate when trying to maneuver a right click for menus and options.
¢ The backlit keyboard allows for only one setting which is makes the keys almost invisible in certain light conditions.
¢ The package is impressive but turns warm enough to make it uncomfortable for a long usage hours on lap.
HP Spectre x360 is a beautiful machine that does what it is supposed to. But, at that price tag, it is not meant for everyone. It still lacks a dedicated graphics unit and the refinement that one would expect at this price range. That said, if you are a windows guy and want something that your Apple friends would want to envy, then the Spectre x360 does that job pretty well.
