This is one of HP’s finest laptops of 2017, and it’s a firm rival to the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1. Granted, the HP is slightly thicker, the package including the power brick is a little heavier and the SSD is slower. However, it has a much faster processor and an equally attractive design.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
