It doesn’t matter which HP Spectre x360 15 shoppers buy this March, they can expect enough horsepower to create whatever they wish.
HP designed the Spectre x360 15 for people who like to create things and want a notebook that feels high-end. The laptop has an aluminum chassis that comes in copper and dark ash. Special hinges allow buyers to flip the 15.6-inch 4K display backward for a solid touch and pen experience. At 0.76-inches thin, the laptop isn’t just sharp-looking, it’s also sleek. The laptop will start at $1,369.99 and will come in silver or copper colors.
Two different Spectre x360 15 configurations with the latest Intel Core processors deliver on the performance and power creatives need.
One configuration pairs the Intel Core i7-870FG processor with a Radeon RX Vega M graphics chip. This model gets 12 hours of battery life and recovers half of its charge in 30 minutes thanks to HP’s Fast Charge technology.
The second configuration pairs a quad-core Intel Core processor with an NVIDIA GeForce MX 150 graphics card. It lasts 13 hours away from a wall outlet and charges to 90 percent of its full capacity in 90 minutes.
Buyers of either configuration can expect a solid video watching and music experience thanks to the 15.6-inch 3840 x 2160 resolution display and the four speakers that provide sound. HP shrunk the bezels on the left and right sides of the display to make whatever is on-screen appear as if it’s floating. Buying HP’s Tilt Pen unlocks super-accurate writing or drawing when buyers flip the laptop’s display back to use it as a tablet.
Having all the right ports determines how quickly users can create their next masterpiece. The HP Spectre x360 15 has 1 Thunderbolt 3 port, a USB Type-C port, an HDMI port, a full-size USB 3.1 port, a headset jack and an SD card reader. That’s a solid selection. Many notebooks designed for creatives don’t have a headset jack or a dedicated port for connecting a display.
Everything buyers create on the HP Spectre x360 15 is easy to protect. Just pressing the F1 key on the laptop’s keyboard turns on a privacy screen. It also has a fingerprint reader and a Windows Hello camera for signing into Windows 10 without a password.
