Better yet? HP's 2017 version of the Spectre x360 15-inch convertible features a latest-generation Intel processor alongside a switch to discrete graphics. The updated design incorporates smaller bezels a la Spectre x360 13 and the 4K display - improved over last year's model - is now the sole panel option.

92% HP Spectre x360 (2017) Laptop Review
Source: Reviewed.com English
The Spectre is one of the best 2-in-1's out there. With its killer look and included stylus, HP did an excellent job fine-tuning a nearly perfect machine. The latest model now has everything you'd expect from a top-of-the-line convertible laptop: a 360-degree hinge, a thin profile, a stylish color scheme, and a sharp-looking display. This laptop checks off a ton of boxes. Though I've fallen head-over-heels for this laptop, there's still a couple of misgivings I'd like to address.

The HP Spectre x360 is nothing short of amazing. It has a stunning design, a bundled stylus, a flawless keyboard and touchpad, a multitouch display that works brilliantly, excellent performance and, best of all, it's a 2-in-1 device that can be converted into a tablet.

DON’T EXPECT TO find revolutionary changes with the new HP Spectre x360 13. The latest version of this venerable laptop—it dates to HP’s acquisition of VoodooPC in 2009—continues the company’s tradition of steadily improving a fine machine.

The HP Spectre X360 15 (2017) is a very good, beautiful, 15.6” multi-mode computer that is priced aggressively. At ~$1499, the configuration that we tested may not win the “absolute performance” battle, but it does win the performance/price and the battery/price comparison most of the time. At $1499 the Spectre X360 15 simply offers much value for the money.

90% The 15-inch HP Spectre x360 Is a Versatile 2-in-1 Laptop With a Killer 4K Display
Source: Best Products English
A well-equipped HP Spectre x360 with 15.6-inch 4K display, 16GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, and a stylus pen will set you back a highly reasonable $1,530. That's well over $1,000 less than a similarly equipped, slightly more powerful, but not as versatile MacBook Pro, so it's worth thinking: How much do you really prefer macOS over Windows 10?

HP Spectre X360 15-inch (2017) Laptop Review
Source: Reviewed.com English
Now, I'll acknowledge that both the Mac and Dell options have very fast internals that make them well-suited for professional users. But, I think that most people shopping for a laptop will be suitably impressed by the HP's dual-core 7th gen i7 chip. Save for the disappointing trackpad, HP's picked out top-shelf components and put them into a compelling package with the HP Spectre X350 15-inch.

HP Spectre x360 (2017) Review: Making the Best Laptop Better
Source: Paste English
While the 13-inch Spectre x360 isn’t without peers in both the Ultrabook and convertible computing categories, it’s HP’s convertible that is unrivaled when it comes to value. Apple’s similarly configured MacBook Pro 13-inch with Touch Bar, for example, retails for $1,999 but only comes with half the RAM and no touchscreen, while Dell’s touch-enabled XPS 13 notebook only comes with a QHD+ resolution display and retails for $1,949 when configured with similar options to our Spectre review unit. Neither notebooks come with a 360-degree hinge, so you won’t be able to convert the MacBook or XPS into a tablet on the go.

But it’s exactly that – a niche. It does everything well and comes in at a just-about-reasonable price. If you’re after a big, 360-degree-hinge laptop with stylus, the HP Spectre x360 15 is the best on the market right now. Of the laptops we’ve reviewed, the Acer Spin 7 is in the same price bracket but is less powerful; however, it's also smaller and lighter, and so worth a look.

HP Spectre X360: Makes A Great Case For The Best 2-in-1 Laptop Today

The 2017 HP Spectre X360 has a base price of $1,050 which is good value for something as impressive and beautiful as it is. More premium models, those that carry Intel's Core i7 CPU and bigger storage go for $1,160 to $1,300.

95% HP Spectre x360 review: A near-perfect convertible that falls short on battery life
Source: Neowin English
In the beginning of this review, I questioned whether HP might finally have made the perfect laptop. That was sort of a trick question, as there's no such thing. If you're a gamer that's looking for a 15-inch quad-core beast with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080, clearly this isn't for you. Or maybe you're looking at the other end of the spectrum and you want something that's ultra-portable, so maybe you have your eye on the HP Spectre 13 or Apple's MacBook.

Where to land on the Spectre x360 15? This machine is certainly more refined than the 2016 version, which, mind you, was a trim and tidy premium machine itself. This refreshed version showed the performance edge over competing 2-in-1 models that a prime cut of today's mobile components will gain you. That edge is not huge, but it's consistent. The power users that this machine targets will be hard-pressed to find better speed in a 2-in-1 of this size class.

There's so much to like about the 15-inch HP Spectre x360, including its vivid 4K display long battery life and quality speakers, which are some of the best you can find on a laptop. The warm temperatures and modest Nvidia GTX 940 graphics are relatively small drawbacks.

NVIDIA GeForce 940MX: Mid-range laptop graphics card based on the Maxwell architecture. Compared to the older 940M, the MX now also supports GDDR5 graphics memory and maybe slightly faster clock speeds. Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these 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.  
7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.
