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 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 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, and it comes...

HP Spectre x360 (2016) review:

 

"Which Windows laptop should you buy?" That's no longer a tough question: these days, I almost always recommend a Dell XPS 13 or an HP Spectre x360. When these notebooks first hit shelves last year, they offered more style and performance than we'd...

Two years running, the HP Spectre x360 offers incredible value for the money. Its slim, premium aluminum frame houses a speedy processor, comfortable keyboard and touchpad, plenty of full-size ports, a beautiful touchscreen and a surprising amount of...

While attractive, it's a little chunkier than some of the competition. The glossy screen can generate distracting reflections -- the price you pay for touch -- and the 15-inch model's speakers sound muddy.

If you're looking for a full-featured Windows laptop with major bang for the buck, the HP Spectre x360 is it.

HP Spectre x360 13t Review

 

Architects and artists may argue about whether form follows function, but the HP Spectre x360 13t has both. This 2-in-1 ($899 starting, $1,520 as tested) has a beautiful metallic design that looks good whether it's in laptop, tablet, tent or stand...

HP's 15-inch Spectre x360: Come for the screen, stay for the battery life

 

The Spectre x360 15t is a bigger version of the original x360 we reviewed last year. It brings the same well-constructed design as its smaller stablemate, along with a comfortable keyboard and a nearly bloatware-free Windows install. Because it's so...

Thin and light for a laptop this size ; 4K screen option on this 15-inch model ; Well-constructed ; Comfortable keyboard ; 10-plus hours of battery life ; Almost no bloatware ; Good sound quality

Touchpad can be a bit flaky ; No performance gains over the smaller version; discrete graphics not an option

The 15-inch Spectre x360 is a bigger, but not necessarily more powerful, version of the original that came out last year. The main benefit is extra screen real estate and, if your budget allows, the optional 4K resolution. Even at its best, though, the...

HP Envy Spectre x360 review

 

HP's Spectre x360 look sharp, mature and elegant, but its lacks a stand-out feature to separate it in the crowded market for luxury PC notebooks.

HP’s Spectre x360 is proof of how competitive the premium laptop market has become. It used to be just the MacBook that ruled the roost, but over the past few years everyone has entered the game, and some companies are making major strides. Dell is the...

HP Spectre x360 review: A sexy convertible that just can't take the heat

 

Slight thermal throttling under heavy loads mars an otherwise gorgeous picture including a CNC aluminum body, responsive touchscreen and awesome battery life.

Sexy milled aluminum chassis ; Reasonably priced at $1,000

Throttles under heavy CPU loads ; Big and heavy

HP's Spectre x360 is one sexy convertible laptop with a full-sized comfortable keyboard and ultra-wide trackpad. Using Intel's latest 5th generation CPU, the Spectre x360 main Achilles's heel is its size,...
