Design & Display

With a gorgeous design, epic battery life and fast performance, HP’s Spectre x360 is a nearly perfect 2-in-1 laptop. Very few laptops or (personal computers) come as close to being perfect as the Spectre x360.

Updated with Intel’s 10th Gen processors and a modernized chassis, the Spectre x360 takes everything we loved about its predecessor and ramps it up. It starts with the laptop’s design, which is more stunning than ever thanks to thinner display bezels and smaller footprint.

Other highlights include a bright, vivid display and the Spectre x360’s epic, 13-plus hours of battery life.

Factor in a comfortable keyboard, fast performance and an included stylus, and it’s easy to see why the Spectre x360 is one of the best 2-in-1 laptops ever and one of the laptops with best battery life.

The Spectre x360 uses an Ethernet-style drop-jaw mechanism to house a full USB-A port, and air inlets were enlarged to improve cooling. The only major casualty of the smaller chassis are top-firing speakers, which were moved to the bottom of the laptop.

It’s easy to get wrapped up this laptop’s gorgeous design and forget its practicality. As a 2-in-1 laptop, the x360’s flexible hinges let you position the laptop into tent, studio or tablet mode. The hinges are sturdy enough that the screen didn’t wobble even when I tapped on it with some force.

At 12.1 x 7.7 x 0.7 inches and 2.7 pounds, the Spectre x360 is lighter but a bit thicker than the XPS 13 2-in-1 (11.7 x 8.2 x 0.5 inches, 2.9 pounds), the Yoga C930 (12.2 x 8.6 x 0.6 inches, 2.8 pounds) and last year’s model (12.2 x 8.6 x 0.6 inches, 2.8 pounds).

On the display side, the Spectre x360 comes with two touch-screen options: 1080p or 4K OLED. As tempting as that OLED panel might be, you won’t have any complaints with the 13.3-inch, 1080p display.

The Spectre x360’s display covers 109% of the sRGB color gamut, according to our colorimeter. That makes it less vivid than the panels on the XPS 13 2-in-1 (113%), the previous Spectre x360 (150%) and the average laptop (123%). The Spectre x360 13’s display is a bit more colorful than the Yoga C930’s (100%).

Operating System & Processor

HP Spectre x360 base model boasts an Intel Core i7-8565U CPU and 8GB of RAM. The Intel Core i7-8565U is an 8th Generation processor, with four cores and eight threads, as well as a base frequency of 1.80GHz that boasts up to 4.60GHz.

Graphics & Performance

The HP Spectre X360 provides excellent overall productivity performance in whatever mode you choose, along with improved Iris Plus graphics that provide better performance in creative apps that support the GPU.

As of the case with the graphics, It’s not discrete but the Spectre x360’s Intel Iris Plus is a step up from the stale integrated UHD graphics found in all but the latest ultraportable laptops. On the 3D Mark Ice Storm Unlimited benchmark, the Spectre x360 scored a 107,453, which tops the Yoga C930 (85,758, UHD 620), the last-gen Spectre (90,977, UHD 620) and the category average (95,845).

So this means users can play games on the Spectre x360 as long as they aren’t cranked to Ultra graphics settings.

HP Spectre X360 Keyboard, Touchpad & Pen

The Spectre x360 13 has the same great keyboard as the previous model. The Spectre x360’s Chiclet-style keys are large, well-spaced and have decent travel for a laptop this thin.

One thing to keep in mind is that the keys’ transparent font doesn’t contrast well with their silver finish. Non-touch typers shouldn’t have too many problems, though, because the attractive, large font is quite easy-to-read and the keys have two levels of backlighting (for whatever reason, the spacebar isn’t backlit).

You can get excited now because the Spectre x360 13’s 4.4 x 2.2-inch touchpad comes with Windows Precision drivers, which is widely considered an upgrade over the previous Synaptics drivers.

One compromise of reducing the Spectre x360’s footprint was moving its speakers from the deck to below the chassis. The new bottom-firing speakers are powerful enough to fill a medium-size room but don’t deliver much sonic depth.

Battery Life

HP Spectre X360 kept the same 61 watt-hour battery capacity from the older version, which means that if you select the 1080p display you’re going to get some awesome battery life.

You’ll probably get close to the same longevity as we saw with the previous version, some of the best we’ve seen at over 17 hours looping my Extraction movie trailer and almost 13 hours browsing the web.

Pretty classy if you ask me.
