Model: The HP Spectre x360 series is a representation of the HP company brand of convertible laptops that center on the theme of business orientation. What makes the HP Spectre x360 so intriguing is the fact that these convertible models feature a 360 degree hinge mechanism, which allows the user to configure the positioning of the devices into a more comfortable and practical position in accordance to their liking. In a long running attempt to maintain the relevance of the HP Spectre x360 series, the next entry into this applaudable collection would be none other than the HP Spectre x360 15-df0500nd model itself. First and foremost, it is worth noting that the HP Spectre x360 15-df0500nd model is a convertible that carries the measurement size of 15.6 inch for its screen. The common denominator of standards would be 14 inch for convertibles. This exemplifies the fact that the HP Spectre x360 15-df0500nd model is designed to cater more towards consumers that require a bigger screen display in order for them to be able to conduct their work on a better resolution. The 15.6 inch display also supports up to 3,840 x 2,160 pixel resolution. These metrics are truly outstanding due to the fact that some high-end gaming laptops (which are designed to sustain very heavy load due to in-game graphics generation) can only achieve up to a mere 1,920 x 1,080 pixel resolution. It is ascertained for users of the HP Spectre x360 15-df0500nd convertible that they are going to be able to navigate through all multimedia aspects at the highest graphics resolution possible. Furthermore, the HP Spectre x360 15-df0500nd also comes with a 4k touchscreen feature, which is all the more appreciated by users.

The operations of the HP Spectre x360 15-df0500nd convertible is handled by a 7th Generation Intel Core i7-7500U processor and the Nvidia GeForce 940MX graphics processor unit. The Intel Core i7-7500U has a base clock of 2.9 GHz, which leaves very little room for lag and sluggishness for work productivity. The inclusion of the Nvida GeForce 940MX as the HP Spectre x360 15-df0500nd’s graphics processor unit of choice, however, does come off as a surprise and has caused somewhat of a stir. The Nvidia GeForce 940MX is not too shabby when it comes to rendering graphics but this particular GPU model is considered to be one of the oldest in the scene. It is understandable that the design of the HP Spectre x360 15-df0500nd is more business-oriented, but the incorporation of an old GPU meant for gaming is a bit of a slump.

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.  


i7-8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6":

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

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


HP: The Hewlett-Packard Company, founded 1935, commonly referred to as HP, is a technology corporation headquartered in California, United States. HP specializes in developing and manufacturing computing, storage, and networking hardware, software and services.

Other product lines, including electronic test equipment and systems, medical electronic equipment, solid state components and instrumentation for chemical analysis. HP posted US $91.7 billion in annual revenue in 2006, making it the world's largest technology vendor in terms of sales. In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. 

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

 

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).


20%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
