HP Spectre x360 13 (7500U, 4K UHD) Convertible Review

 

Spectre spectacle. HP introduced the redesigned Spectre x360 FHD last November with the promise of a 4K UHD version in early 2017. The manufacturer has finally delivered with the Spectre x360 13-ac033dx, though the 4K SKU will cost a hefty $1600 USD.

near 100 percent sRGB coverage; very accurate colors and grayscale out of the box ; true 4K UHD; beautiful display with high contrast ; Active Pen stylus included with each purchase ; light and portable for practical tablet mode ; USB 3.0 Type-A + 2x...

very limited Turbo Boost performance; i7-7500U multi-thread underperforms just slightly ; sensitive system fans; loud fans during medium-high loads ; larger footprint than XPS 13; lid is slightly more flexible ; backlight brightness could be brighter...

HP has made its Spectre x360 13 even better by incorporating 4K UHD and active pen support for a superior tablet experience. This is still the same lightweight and easy-to-handle 2-in-1 that made the 2016 model stand out as one of the most practical...

HP Spectre 13 x360 Convertible Review

 

Enduring beauty. I want a light 13-inch notebook, a tablet, a high-quality as well as great-looking chassis, and really long battery runtimes. But those are 4 wishes at once, that's really not possible! Yes it is. The big surprise in our in-depth review.

two practical configurations available, robust and very attractive unibody chassis, light, flawless build quality, great aluminum surfaces, sophisticated appearance, different modes like tablet thanks to the 360 degrees hinge, good port selection for...

Lid bounces heavily and for a long time during movements ..., ... and cannot be opened with one hand, Ethernet adaptor only 10/100 Mbps, no maintenance hatch, keyboard illumination cannot be dimmed and is slightly uneven, black value too high, which...

The light and flexible HP Spectre 13 x360 not only completely convinces us with its design and the chassis quality but also with the convenient input devices and the majority of technical aspects. The Turbo utilization is not perfect, and there can be...

HP Spectre x360 13 (i5-6200U) Convertible Review

 

Bullseye. HP has equipped its Spectre x360 series with the latest Skylake processors and continues the success of the recently reviewed model. Unfortunately, known problems remained.

robust and elegant case, system performance, battery life, heat development, system noise, good input devices, build quality

speakers, lid teeters evidently, no maintenance flap

In the Spectre x360, HP once again provided us with a well-made upper class convertible. We can easily praise the choice of materials and the design. Unfortunately, the hinges are still weak. The display teeters too much when touch inputs are made....

HP Spectre x360 (13-inch, 2017) review

 

Thanks to a first-class execution, the HP Spectre x360 13 is the Mini-Me of its head-turning 15-inch sister . What's most surprising about it is how little HP had to drop from the design to shrink it into a 2.8-pound (1.29 kg), slightly larger than a...

Beautifully designed and less than 3 pounds (1.4 kg), the HP Spectre x360 13 has a great keyboard and trackpad, a sharp 4K display and an above-average sound system. Battery life is decent for such a power-sucking screen, and performance fits right in...

Battery life takes a hit with the 4K display compared to high definition. The system runs a little hot.

The HP Spectre x360 13 is a great little laptop, but if battery life matters to you a lot, opt for the HD display, not the more expensive 4K.

HP Spectre x360 13 (2017)

 

With a stylish look, a super-slim build, a gorgeous 4K display, and serious speed, the latest version of the already-great HP Spectre x360 is our favorite high-end convertible laptop.

Fast performance. Slick, modern design. Slim build. 4K display with sharp image quality. USB-C with Thunderbolt 3 plus USB 3.0 ports.

Battery life is only average on the 4K model. Requires USB-C adapters for video out.

The HP Spectre x360 13 fulfills its mission very well, coming together as a slick, versatile, travel-friendly convertible laptop that performs admirably. The 4K display looks excellent, making it very appealing even if it comes with some drawbacks....

HP Spectre x360 Review

 

When I tell people they should buy a 2-in-1 , systems like the HP Spectre x360 are the reason why. It's got all of the utility of a standard laptop, with the flexibility and intimate usability of a tablet. You also get rakish good looks, up to an Intel...

HP Spectre x360 review (2016): Smaller, with more compromises

 

The redesigned Spectre x360 improves on the original with a lighter, more compact design, longer battery life, a Windows Hello webcam and faster disk speeds. However, those smaller dimensions mean a more crowded keyboard and fewer ports than last year....

Compact, lightweight design ; Mostly comfortable typing experience ; Long battery life ; Convenient Windows Hello log-in ; HP left a full-size USB port ; Good viewing angles

Stubborn touchpad ; Some shrunken keys ; Sometimes runs hot ; Fan can get loud ; No more HDMI port or SD reader

As we've just established, then, the updated Spectre x360 is one of several recent laptops that is now thinner and lighter and smaller. It was a similar story with the redesigned MacBook Pro that came out earlier this fall, as well as the new Lenovo...

HP Spectre x360 (late 2016) review

 

If your laptop could be thinner, lighter and smaller with the same great battery life and performance, would you celebrate? Or complain about all the missing ports?

The new HP Spectre x360 is a durable, stylish and light machine with a comfortable keyboard, touchpad, long battery life and a crisp backflipping touchscreen. Extras include excellent speakers, USB-C charging and Windows Hello face login.

Only one full-size USB port. No HDMI output or SD card slot. The fan is noisy and spins up frequently. The size tradeoff doesn't justify the missing features.

The new HP Spectre x360 is an excellent laptop with a lot to offer in a small package, but it's only incrementally better than the previous model, and leaves out some useful features.

HP Spectre x360 13-w023dx

 

The HP Spectre x360 13-w023dx is a powerful, high-end convertible-hybrid laptop that delivers strong performance and outstanding battery life for its price.

Compact size. Good multimedia and day-to-day performance. Long battery life. USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 3 support.

Bulky in tablet mode. Needs USB-C adapters for video out. Limited to full HD panels. Monochrome keys.

Performance and Conclusions The Intel Core i7-7500U processor with integrated Intel HD Graphics 620 is remarkable, since it's a full-powered processor instead of the Core M CPU we've seen in slower systems like the Lenovo Yoga 900S. As a result, the...
