HP Spectre 13 X2 Review

 

The HP Spectre 13 X2 is an attractive convertible with acceptable performance, but the awkward button placement and bulky form factor make it difficult to justify the cost.

Stylish Aesthetic ; Quality Keyboard Dock ; Solid Battery Life

Bulky Design ; Tablet Wobbles in Dock ; Awkward Button Placement

The HP Spectre 13 X2 is a suitable convertible, but it doesn’t warrant the high-end price tag. With an Intel Core i5 processor and 4GB of DDR3 its performance is capable, but the device is outclassed by competitors such as the Microsoft Surface 2 Pro...

HP Spectre 13 X2

 

The HP Spectre 13 X2 offers the productivity of a thin and light with the portability of a tablet with a vivid display and above-average battery life.

Attractive design; Vivid display; Solid performance; Above-average battery life; Runs cool

Bulky for a tablet and a laptop; Tablet wobbles when attached to dock

Build a better hybrid and the world will be a path to your door...or something like that. Thanks to its Intel Core i5 CPU and integrated graphics, the X2 is a solid workhorse delivering just enough power for work and play. It also delivers a...

HP Spectre 13 x2

 

A dual-battery hybrid that's hewn from aluminium and with a stonking 1080p screen

Good-looking, hard-wearing exterior ; High-quality 1080p screen ; Decent keyboard ; Exceptionaly cool and quiet

Slow Core i5 processor ; Heavy, lop-sided design ; Trackpad could be improved ; Battery life unable to match rivals

The Spectre has Beats speakers, and the familiar brand delivered familiar, disappointing sound. There’s no real bass to speak of, and the rest of the range was hampered by the tinny top-end. These insipid speakers are nothing more than a last resort,...

HP Spectre 13 x2: This hybrid falls short of the hype

 

HP's latest 2-in-1 detachable hybrid breaks some new ground: It's a notebook PC with a spacious, high-res 13.3-inch screen you can pull off its keyboard base. Once separated, the Spectre x2 becomes a thin and light tablet--at least for its size. But...

I'm not saying the detachable 2-in-1 concept is completely without merit. The architect scenario I described above is a compelling use case, and I'm sure HP can list others. I just think most people will be happier with separate devices, or a smaller...

HP Split 13 x2

 

Meet the HP Split 13 x2, another Windows 8-powered convertible tablet/laptop hybrid that borrows the form factor of its smaller Envy x2 cousin, but blows it up to a whopping 13-inches and aims to take centre stage as your main laptop and entertainment...

HP's Split 13 x2 is an interesting laptop hybrid, but it's one that's just too big and heavy to become your daily go-to computer. It's fine to use as a laptop for casual use in the home, but its performance is rather disappointing, and using it in...
