9 Best Surface Book Alternatives in 2018
HP Spectre x360-13-ac076nr - $1,149.99
The HP Spectre x360 doesn’t have a detachable display like the Surface Book. That’s ok because it can turn into a tablet.
The HP Spectre X360’s silver and copper metal skin look even sleeker than the Surface Book’s standard silver hue. You can fold its display backward and turn it into a tablet or flip the screen again to use it as a notebook. It weighs 2.86-pounds, which is roughly one-pound lighter than the Surface Book does when docked to its keyboard.

HP was more forward thinking with ports and connectivity options than Microsoft was with the Surface Book. The notebook has 2 USB Type-C Thunderbolt ports so that you can connect two monitors or move your files to a hard drive quickly. A standard USB 3.0 port allows users to connect to their existing accessories.
HP has stacked the HP Spectre x360-ac-76nr with all the best internals. It has 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and an Intel Core i5 processor. Its large battery allows for 10 hours of video playback and 16 hours of regular use - more than the 12 hours the least expensive Surface Book models can manage. Fast charging gets you back to 50% of battery life in a half-hour. Finally, shoppers can switch out the 13.3-inch display of the HP Spectre x360-ac076-nr for a 4K model that puts the Surface Book’s display to shame.
Like the Surface Book, the HP Spectre x360 supports a digital pen. This pen costs $59.99 extra.
