HP Spectre X2 Review: Should You Trade Your Bulky Laptop For This?
Source: Unbox English
It depends on your needs. The HP Spectre X2 is a great little notebook for people constantly on the go and require lightweight gear for maximum comfort. It’s a great productivity tool, lasts quite a bit and has a nice display for you to work on.

HP Spectre X2 (2017) Unboxing, First Impressions: Good Lookin’ Ultraportable
Source: Unbox English
HP is hoping that the Spectre X2’s lightweight and relatively powerful internals make it the natural choice of mobile workers everywhere. We’ll see for ourselves if it’s really the best choice for road warriors: we’ll be taking it with us as we leave for an overseas trip this weekend and see if it’s worth the Php 79,990 that HP Philippines is asking for it.

HP Spectre x2 Review
Source: Yugatech English
The HP Spectre x2 is that kind of notebook designed for people who need to be productive yet want to do it in style. It’s attractive, nicely crafted, and equipped with hardware powerful enough to run demanding applications. It’s well-thought-out as well as HP acknowledged its limitations and addressed it by including the necessary accessories in the package. They even threw in the HP Active Pen which is a welcome accessory for artists. It’s not perfect though, like its temperature when under load, pen sensitivity, and battery life. But considering the benefits mentioned, these are simple cons I can live with it.

96% HP x2 Spectre 2017 – rises above the surface (review)
Source: Gadgetguy English
My initial impressions are that this is every bit as good as a Pro, it looks better, has a slightly better keyboard, slightly higher screen resolution, 2 x USB-C, and HP is offering a 1-year on-site fix or swap exchange warranty – that is excellent.

Hands on: HP Spectre x2 review
Source: Techradar English
A gorgeous sequel that brings the device in line with both HP’s existing products and the company’s inspirations. Knowing its price, the Spectre x2 could very well be a compelling alternative to the Surface Pro devices.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that 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.
