Even with the decrease in battery life, we welcome the addition of the OLED display to the Spectre x360. It’s one of those features that once you’ve experienced it, you will never go back to the old way of a plain-Jane IPS LCD display. The gains in contrast and color dynamics are just too great. Plus, with OLED displays beginning to trickle down to midrange laptops, buyers should certainly expect an OLED on a high-end model like the Spectre x360. OLED aside, it’s one of the best looking 2-in-1 convertibles on the market. The brownish-black chassis is unique without being garish, and the all-metal chassis is rock-solid if a tad heavy. With its U series processor and integrated graphics, it’s a better fit for general office tasks than creative work. Despite the drop in battery life, the Spectre x360 remains one of our favorite 2-in-1 business convertibles.

Earlier, we said that the I/O is pretty limited. While this is true, it is good to see that the two Thunderbolt 4 connectors are paired with a USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 2) port and a MicroSD card reader. By the way, the former is possible thanks to a jaw-like mechanism, which is closed by default, thus saving space. Ultimately, we find the Spectre x360 14 (14-ef0000) to be a very good purchase option. Make sure you find a way not to pay for an additional Pen because some competitors of the brand can provide you with just this. For instance, the AMD version of the Lenovo Yoga 7 (14″, 2022) is an absolute unit of a convertible, and it features a stylus inside the box.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
In former time,s this weight was typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, often 15 inch laptops weigh as much.
