HP Spectre x360 – Full Review and Benchmarks

Positives

In addition to a revamped design, the Spectre x360 also features a new Intel 7th-Gen Kaby Lake CPU. You can choose either a Core i5 processor or a Core i7 chip like the one in our 2.7-GHz Core i7-7500U, 16GB of RAM and 512GB PCIe SSD-equipped review unit.

Negatives

Google HP Spectre x360 battery drain. I have one and I'm returning before return period is up. Too bad this issue hasn't been resolved. It's a great laptop otherwise.

The silver keyboard is very very difficult to use under some lighting conditions. The weak backlight can actually make it worse.

Is it a laptop, tablet or both? The HP Spectre x360 13t Touch, the latest in HP’s line of Yoga-like systems, fills the gap between the company’s previous 11- and 15-inch systems designed to flip from notebook to slate — and everything in between. Starting at $899 ($999 as configured), this all-aluminum ultraportable also has a bright display, extra-wide touchpad and excellent battery life. But while it’s a great notebook, is it the best convertible you can get?

    The Spectre x360 would be a great machine if it worked. I’ve had three of them, and all had the battery-drain-when-off problem. Quality control is also a problem. Of the three, one had a camera that would not focus and a sound card that would cut out intermittently. Another had a loose touchpad that rattles. The touchpad on all 3 was flakey, misinterpreting gestures and losing contact with my finger placement meaning drags and text selections would fail to do what I wanted. You want to love this laptop, but you just can’t. Stay away.
