The HP Spectre 13 X360 is a 13-inch laptop and this is the late 2017 edition with Intel 8th generation CPU with 40% more speed compared to the previous generation. It is a fast one and also quite light weighing under 3 pounds, that’s 2.89 pounds to be specific. They actually made the footprint even smaller because what they did with this 360 degree convertible is they moved the speakers up top instead of along the side.
Its quite narrow making even more portable. It has integrated graphics, backlit keyboard, Thunderbolt 3 and it comes with a pen in the box. From the box you only get a charger and a pen. They just updated the CPU and the speaker were redesigned. The speaker still don’t sound super awesome as they sound a little thin and like they’re straining at high volume.
HP also added a fingerprint scanner on the side of the HP Spectre 13 X360 and also a Windows Hello camera. HP sells us in their business elite line under the elite label and their fingerprint scanners are more preferred. Fingerpint scanners are a bit more secure than the kind of facial scanning that Windows laptops use.
HP Spectre 13 X360 has a quad-core CPU and it now makes it a little bit less of a CPU. It is efficient in gaming and performance is good with the turbo boost levels. This configuration has an Intel core i5 processor with 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB PCLE and a SSD which is the fast kind of SSD. It also has a 1920 by 1080 Full HD IPS display supporting pen and touch.
This laptop comes with two fans. This is probably why the cooling has improved compared to some other very skinny ultrabooks. Both the RAM and the SSD can be extended to once preference and they can be found soldered on board. Opening the backpanel is easy and everything is well laid out starting with the Wi-Fi card, speakers and there are some magnets actually to help it stays shut when you do it put it into tablet mode.
The HP Spectre 13 X360 is a very classy and sturdy chassis. It got Thunderbolt three and you’ve got your choice between two really very nice displays. The pen works on quite nicely. It’s a great all-around ER and the price is nice. HP does a good job of giving us a premium product at an affordable price.
