The model was quite expensive at launch, but the new sale price is much more reasonable. Users will love the OLED touchscreen, squarer aspect ratio, port features, and overall portability of the system when compared to the competing XPS or ZenBook series.

The HP Spectre x360 14 is barely two months old and Best Buy is already slashing $300 USD off its initial launch price. The 13.5-inch convertible can be considered a midway point between the smaller 13.3-inch Spectre x360 13 and larger 15.6-inch Spectre x360 15 when it comes to screen size and performance.

The most distinguishing feature of the system is its 3:2 3000 x 2000 resolution OLED touchscreen to contrast the 16:9 or 16:10 IPS displays of most other laptops in its size category. The squarer dimensions are better suited for web browsing and photo editing as a result while its 11th gen Core i7-1165G7 CPU is no pushover especially in terms of performance-per-watt. Everything about the metal chassis is visually luxurious as to be expected from a "Spectre" PC.

Main drawbacks to the system include the spongy clickpad and soldered RAM and WLAN. We also think the hinges could have been tighter for a better sense of longevity. Check out our full review on the IPS version to learn more about the chassis and its features.
