The most luxurious of ultrabook HP renews itself and earn the 2 in 1 function that adds tablet functionality. We’re talking the Spectre, the ultra thin design with Gorilla Glass coating all over the lid and palmrest. We tried the first edition, now comes a major update that disrupts the whole design.
It’s called Spectre 13 x360 and as you can see from the image that we publish on this page has the hinges that allow the cover to rotate 360 degrees to close to the bottom in order to leave the display.
A solution that is not new, and reminiscent of, for example, the solutions adopted by Lenovo Yoga range hybrids, the Dell Inspiron 3000, as well as 11 other consumer products of the same HP which are always identified by the initials x 360 in the name.
HP probably intends with this move to modernize an elite product that could lose Polish compared to the newer and more flexible models of competition. The price is not very distant from the first removing hidden network adapter, there is talk of a figure of around 1300 euros for a product with capacitive touchscreen display from 13.3-inch resolution 2560 x 1440 pixel, Intel Core family processor Broadwell, joined by 8 GB of RAM, SSD storage support 256 or 512 GB SSD, integrated graphics.
Autonomy declared is 10 hours, thanks to the integrated 56 Wh battery, 3 provides connectivity USB 3.0 connectors, HDMI video output ports and mini DisplayPort, Intel WiDi wireless display, SD card reader, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0.
The dimensions are 32.5 x 21.84 x 1.5 cm, compared with 1.49 kg weight. Data that leave some doubt about handling as tablet: one-handed hold a 13 inches by a pound and a half isn’t quite the best. But the rest is a “side effect” of fashion of the moment, that we are experiencing on almost any notebook and tablet hybrids.
