The HP Spectre x360 Laptop Is The Most Gorgeous & Elegant Laptop We've Ever Used And It's Powerful Too

It's been a while since I've used a beautiful windows laptop and I got the opportunity to test out HP's latest x360 Convertible laptop. The laptop is a combination of productivity and good looks that cannot be matched by any other laptop right now. When you use the laptop in public, it sure is a head turner. However, the laptop is not only about the looks as it performs well in carrying out tasks, editing images and can even double up as a tablet.

This versatility makes this one of the best Windows laptops I've ever used. Bear in mind that this laptop is not meant for gaming and is more for daily use such as video consumption, editing images/videos and listening to music. Let's find out how the laptop fared during the course of our review:

Design

To call this laptop beautiful is an understatement. It looks more stylish than its previous model and the entire chassis is made of aluminium. HP calls it the 'gem cut' as it has angled edges which represents a diamond. The 'Dark Ash Grey' variant looks absolutely stunning with a gold rose finish that gives the laptop a modern look. The design itself also incorporates functionality as you can use it various positions i.e. as a laptop, a tablet, as a tent or in reverse mode.

The laptop is 14mm thin and weighs only 1.31 kg. It's comfortable to carry in your bag and adds to the factor of portability. The power button is also discreetly hidden in the left angled corner with blends in with the overall design of the laptop. The other angled corner houses a USB-C port which can be used for charging and doesn't get in the way of other ports. As the HP x360 has a brand new chassis, it has more room for extra ports such as a slot for microSD, a USB 3 Type A, and extra USB-C port and and audio jack. 

Display

The Spectre x360 comes with 13.3-inch UHD WLED IPS panel and is perfect for watching 4K content. The colour representation is accurate and the viewing angles are also up the mark. This laptop also comes with HP Sure View which basically blocks your display from prying eyes. You need to be directly in front of the laptop to see the content which is a handy feature to have in a busy environment. Having said that, the display is also a touchscreen which made it very reflective especially if you use it against the light. Sometimes we found it hard to even read our own text documents due to harsh reflections. Since this is a touchscreen panel with Corning Glass NBT, you will often find yourself cleaning your own fingerprints after using it in tablet mode.

The touchscreen, on the other hand, was quite intuitive and was accurate enough to quick launch applications and take noted with the supplied digital pen. You can always use the laptop in tablet mode by simply folding it back all the way. The hinges on the screen look sturdy and look like it can take enough abuse to last longer than its predecessors.  

Keyboard 

The keyboard on the HP Spectre x360 is a dream to use as it has comfortable keystrokes and has a satisfying sound. The keys also provide a 1.4mm key travel which is perfect for typing long documents and also this review. The one thing we didn't like were the three backlit modes for the keyboard as we would have loved to adjust it according to our own preference. The three modes are basically bright, medium bright and off which is not ideal for different room conditions. 

Security

We've already mentioned by HP Sure View that blocks content from prying eyes, however, the HP x360 also has additional security measures such as a fingering scanner and Windows Hello. The fingerprint scanner was very accurate and fast at unlocking the laptop as 'Windows Hello' was not as reliable. 

Performance 

The HP Spectre x360 runs on Intel's latest quad-core Whiskey Lake processor that has been made specifically for productivity, video conferencing, web browsing and video streaming. The processor has a base frequency of 1.8 GHz and is more than enough for performing photo editing on Photoshop. Having said that, we would suggest you don't run any other application in the background as it can get quite heavy for the processor to handle the extra load. In terms of memory, the laptop comes with 16 GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM and cannot be upgraded if you wanted to. Internal storage is also quite impressive as it comes with a 1TB PCIe NVMe TLC SSD. For reference, the laptop got a respectable score of 3,846 in our PCMark 10 test which comes close to the performance of the XPS 13.

Probably our favourite feature of the HP Spectre x360 is the battery life. When using moderately, the laptop is capable of lasting over 20 hours however when using it for productivity and consuming content at the same time, the battery life would fall down to 14 hours. It still manages to last longer than other laptops with a similar configuration thanks to its 4-cell, 61 Wh Li-ion polymer battery. 

Audio Quality

We normally don't talk about speakers in a laptop that much however there is something special going on with the HP Spectre x360. It has quad speakers that have been tuned by Bang & Olufsen. There are two speakers on the keyboard deck and two underneath giving it a very crystal clear sound. Having said that, the speakers are ideal for watching movies but you will notice the lack of bass when listening to music. The speakers on the laptop are placed in a manner that you can use them in any orientation i.e. tablet, laptop or in the tent position. This ensures that sound remains uniform in no matter which orientation you plan to use the laptop. 

The Final Say 

We used the laptop for a few weeks and we can easily say it's the most beautiful laptop we've ever used. It comes in three configuration where the starting price is Rs 1,39,990. It looks sexy and offers privacy protocols like the HP Sure View. The long battery life is definitely a winner for people who plan to use the HP Spectre x360 on the move. If you are currently looking for a premium Windows laptop, you cannot ignore the HP Spectre x360.
