Hands on: HP Spectre Folio Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The HP Spectre Folio is a flexible and well-designed 2-in-1 Windows 10 laptop-tablet with a few drawbacks, including storage and a design which muffles the integrated speakers in certain configurations.

80% HP Spectre Folio review: This lightweight leather laptop is different in a very good way
Source: PC World English
Lightweight and leather-wrapped, the HP Spectre Folio actually feels comfortable, in a way that a metal- or plastic-clad laptop never could. Thanks to its energy-sipping Intel Core Y processor, it performs capably while generating very little heat, and its battery lasts a very long time.

HP Spectre Folio review: This lightweight leather laptop is different in a very good way
Source: Good Gear Guide English
While I love the HP Spectre Folio’s leather casing, that’s just part of why this laptop rates highly. Without the leather, it would still be remarkably lightweight, cool, and long-lasting on battery. With the leather, HP’s added feelings to the laptop—feelings of comfort, luxury, naturalness. Those are good feelings to have, and they just might sell you on the Spectre Folio.

80% HP Spectre Folio 13-ak0001na review: Blockbuster battery life
Source: It Pro English
The HP Spectre Folio looks fantastic, thanks to its leather exterior, and it’s satisfying to use in its tablet, media and laptop modes. The screen is brilliant, the battery life shames rivals and the CPU can easily handle day-to-day computing tasks. Rivals have more satisfying keyboards and more CPU power, but the Folio remains a stylish and intuitive hybrid.

Intel UHD Graphics 615: Integrated graphics card in some Amber Lake Y-series processors (5 Watt TDP) with 24 EUs (GT2) and no dedicated graphics memory. Clocks with up to 1000 MHz depending on the CPU Model. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
8500Y: Extremely efficient ULV-SoC (System-on-a-Chip) for tablets and fanless notebooks based on the Amber Lake architecture which is basically a Kaby Lake chip produced in the improved 14nm+ process (no 14nm++) with higher clock speeds and 5 Watt TDP. Includes two CPU cores clocked at 1.5 - 4.2 GHz with Hyper Threading support as well as a graphics adapter. Fastest Amber Lake-Y chip at the time of announcement.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
13.3":

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.

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
