It’s obvious that the designers of the HP Spectre X360 towed the design line of the last Spectre laptop from HP for this one with more advancements, making it ride on a high premium and very attractive design. The design is surely bound to make some tech inclined passers-by to stop over and inquire about the brand of the product.
It possesses a 2-in-1 convertible supposedly made of a single block of aluminum, promoting the slickness of the device. The laptop has a black colored body with a gold colored bar running through its edges. These features contribute to the premium look that the HPO Spectre X360 possesses. It comes with golden 180-degree hinges which play the perfect role of converting the device from a laptop to a tablet.
It has no connectivity ports like other similar systems out there, and this is majorly due to its thin form factor with a thickness of 13.6mm. Therefore, the user’s reliance must be on the additional connectors that come as part of the product.
However, it is not a portless device. It comprises a 3.1 USB Type A port, microSD card reader, headphone jack, as well as a power button on the left side. The right side of the device contains to USB-Type C with ThunderBolt, fingerprint sensor, and the big single volume key.
The keyboard complements the design, and also comes with backlit keys alongside a trackpad, all being 100% responsive. The laptop has the Bang and Olufsen speaker, alongside a fancily designed grille located just above the keyboard. The device is a beautifully crafted and eye-catching thin work of art.
HP has apparently aligned with the bezel-less display trend as the device has what is being described as the micro-edges with just 3.95mm narrow bezels. The screen’s resolution is 1920x1080p, alongside being a 13.3-inch FHD IPS micro-edge LED-backlit touch.
The edge-to-edge Corning Gorilla Glass NBT protection layer it possesses on the top provides an additional security layer which promotes resistance of fingerprints. It has a very sharp display and there is no loss of color even when viewed from tricky angles.
However, like its predecessor, the display is also reflective and this becomes more noticeable when the laptop goes on the battery saver mode. This can be fixed by adjusting the brightness, although it results in the drainage of whatever battery power is left.
It is beautiful in design and functionality as a premium product. The HP Spectre X360 is powered by the 8th-generation Intel processor, in this case, both Core i5 and Core i7 Processor. It also comes with an Intel UHD Graphics 620.
The Core i5 processor comprises 360GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD which is paired with 8 GB LPDDR3-2133 SDRAM, while the Core i7 processor variant offers 512GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD and 16GB LPDDR3-2133 SDRAM. The product runs smoothly with these high-class processors and there are no issues of a lag amongst others.
The HP Spectre X360 carries a 60W battery which guarantees 7-8 hours, and this is another added benefit that the device offers amongst many. However, the duration of the battery life may vary based on usage. Meanwhile, the 2-in-1 convertible boasts a fast charging support that supposedly goes from 0 to 90% in approximately 90 minutes of power access.
The HP Spectre X360 model is a beautiful device by looks, and also possesses powerful specifications that will carry anyone through any major daily task (Develop apps, Graphic Design, Streaming Movies and Music, Playing Online Games at most popular sites like novibet.co.uk) without any hitches. It has all the capabilities one would need in a premium laptop.
