HP has “refreshed” and “extended” its family of notebook convertible with two models: Spectre 13 x360 updated with Intel Skylake and OLED display and optional x350 15 Spectre, a larger version with 15.6-inch display. And we must admit that both laptops are great, but let’s start from the largest.
HP Spectre 15 x360
Despite belonging to the category of notebook “desktop”, those that are usually well within four walls because the weight and size limits their mobility, the HP Spectre x360 15 is pretty darn compact. Think: it weighs 1.83 kg and has a thickness of 15.9 mm, plus the hinge that makes rotate the display 360 degrees turns it into a tablet. And ‘the thinnest and lightest of the family, but also as functional as (or possibly more than) any hybrid convertible from 10-12 inches. If the new Spectre x360 15 you won, we have to curb your enthusiasm because it will not be marketed in Italy. But you can find it in other markets in the EMEA region by January at the starting price of 1,399 Euros (of course in this case will not be the usual QWERTY keyboard).
It ‘a notebook dedicated to multimedia users and especially his vocation is already clear at first glance: it has four speakers Bang & Olufsen, 15.6-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) or Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels) and a large 64.5 Wh battery for 13 hours of battery life (FHD) or 9.5 hours (4K). Obviously, the panel is always touch.
Under the aluminum frame CNC elegant lines and thin, HP has chosen to integrate Intel Core i5 / i7 (Skylake), Intel Graphics Iris optional 4GB to 16GB of RAM and 128GB to 512GB of storage state usually. As for interfaces, we find three USB 3.0 full-size, a USB Type-C (data only and not charging), an HDMI and a mini DisplayPort. We do note that the keyboard is backlit.
