The HP Spectre x360 Review – A Great Laptop

http://c.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f9?isVid=1&isUI=1

I have been able to use a review unit of the HP Spectre x 360 laptop for the last week which is a very superior Windows laptop.

This is a premium laptop with an Intel 6th generation Core i7 processor with 8GB ram and a 512gb solid state drive so it is very quick , great for multi tasking and for whatever you throw at it.

This laptop is thin and light and has a nice wide trackpad which I must say did not interfere with my typing and has a nice keyboard.

The 13.3 inch screen is good and anyone who knows me will understand how critical I am of screens and HP deliver with great colour reproduction.

Great wifi antenna which picks up any wifi signals in the area.

Sound is excellent with the Bang & Olufsen speakers and audio setup.

The HP Spectre has a 360 degree hinge which means it can be used in a variety of positions , including a tent mode or it can fold flat like a tablet ( did i mention it is a touch screen as well ) .

The finish on this device is superb , with a black flat surface and on my device the ever sought after “rose gold” edges and trim and the Hewlett – Packard name on the front of the laptop is actually raised lettering which is a nice design touch.

The HP Spectre runs Windows 10 which is now a great operating system for new computers and has worked flawlessly for me.

I am usually critical of hardware makers who insist on putting bloatware on their computers ( bloatware are 3rd party apps , trial programs etc ) but the HP Spectre only has a trial antivirus so congratulations to HP for this.

Battery life has been good with the laptop doing me a full day of normal use but remember it does depend what you do on your laptop as to how long the battery will last.

Conclusion

The HP Spectre x360 4128TU 13″ Laptop – Rose Gold is a top of the line laptop with a price to match $2999 , however you are getting what you pay for when compared to lower priced laptops.

The finish on this computer is excellent , coupled with the speed and versatility of the positioning of the touch screen and the tablet mode make this a great purchase for those wanting a high end laptop..

After using this for a week , if I had to buy a brand name high end laptop that had the power of a desktop , this is the laptop i would currently buy.

This laptop is available only from Harvey Norman and thank you to Harvey Norman and HP for loaning me one for review.
