Reviews for the HP Spectre x2 12-a005nd

60% HP Spectre x2 review: Like the Surface Pro 4, only cheaper
Source: PC Pro English
So, you’re left with a choice. You can either spend £699 on the HP Spectre x2, or you can spend £860 on the Core m3 Surface Pro 4 and Type Cover. For me, the decision is easy. Despite having half the storage, the Surface Pro 4 does everything the HP does in a more refined package. In fact, the vastly superior display quality swings it for me alone, and for that, I’d happily put up with the smaller SSD.

12":

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.
