It looks like what has been announced in May earlier this year has finally come to fruition in the form of the HP Spectre x360, a tablet/notebook hybrid that takes on the convertible PC form factor which was first popularized by Lenovo’s Yoga range of devices. This 13.3″ convertible machine claims to deliver an ultra-thin design, but no matter how much you thin it down, it still cannot beat the svelteness of a pure tablet on its own, so be prepared to work those arms out a wee bit if you would like to use this as your primary computing device. On to the goodies underneath the hood now…
The HP Spectre x360 will arrive in Ash Silver with Copper accents, and the entire machine weighs 3.2lbs while measuring 0.6″ thin, which should make it quite a looker. With a CNC aluminum chassis, the whole product ends up being more durable and sturdy which fits in nicely for long term use. Since it is a convertible PC, it will have four different modes for you to take advantage of – the notebook mode, the tent mode, the tablet mode, and the stand mode.
In terms of its hardware, you can choose from either Full HD or QHD for its 13.3″ display, with a full backlit keyboard complementing your typing experience, accompanied by a choice of 6th generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. It will also have up to 15 hours of battery life if used conservatively, and depending on your needs, you can opt or 8GB RAM in case 4GB is not enough.
A trio of USB 3.0 ports which will all arrive with HP USB Sleep and Charge are also part of the deal, and where storage is concerned, you can pick and choose from 128GB, 256GB or 512GB SSDs. Expect your ears to enjoy an audio performance by Bang & Olufsen’s dual speakers. The HP Spectre x360 will begin from $899.99 onward for the base model just in case you were wondering.
