The top-class HP laptop is up there with the Dell XPS 13 in our book. HP has been pushing a jewel-like design on the Specter range for a number of years, but the latest Specter x360 13 is the best iteration of it. It may be too flashy for some, but we like its unique look with an accent of diamond-cut edges. What’s better is that the design does not hinder its portability – Specter x360 13 weighs less than three pounds, it is easy to carry around all day.
It also has an excellent keyboard and trackpad that make it a comfortable machine to use for hours. You also get things like an IR camera for Windows Hello and the ability to turn the screen around 360 degrees and use the laptop as a tablet if and when you want. The 4K OLED screen on this discounted model will also be great for watching movies and TV shows, and you can turn the device into tent mode to make it more comfortable.
Even the port array is decent on the Specter x360 1
Can you get Specter x360 13 for less? Absolutely. Best Buy has a model with a 4K touch screen, Core i7 processor, 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD for $ 1,099. If you want to use less and can sacrifice power, you can choose the cheaper model and still get the same core design. However, the 4K OLED panel and the extra Optane memory on the daily model make it a tempting discount.
