Reviews for the HP Spectre 13-h205eg x2

80% Review HP Spectre 13-h205eg x2 Convertible | Notebookcheck
Silent companion. Haswell makes it possible: HP offers a fan-less 13.3-inch notebook with the Spectre 13 x2, which transforms into a tablet with a push of a button. However, the bulky detachable is certainly no bargain with a retail price of almost 1,100 Euros (~$1485).
60% HP Spectre 13 x2 review: This hybrid falls short of the hype
Source: PC World English
In my view, 2-in-1s as large as HP’s Spectre 13 x2 fall short of the goal of delivering tablet and notebook functionality in a single device. They’re bulky, they don’t deliver enough battery life, and this particular model gets too hot when you take full advantage of its beefier processor (which is weaker than what you’d get in a conventional notebook). I’m not saying the detachable 2-in-1 concept is completely without merit. The architect scenario I described above is a compelling use case, and I’m sure HP can list others. I just think most people will be happier with separate devices, or a smaller tablet with optional accessories.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.99 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
