Reviews for the HP Spectre x360 16 RTX 4050

91.1% HP Spectre x360 16 convertible review: Now with 55 W GeForce RTX 4050 graphics | Notebookcheck
The GeForce RTX 4050 GPU runs laps around the integrated Arc 8 configuration. However, CPU throttling bugs are holding back the dGPU configuration from being even better.

84% HP Spectre x360 16 Review: Beautiful 2-in-1 Laptop Needs a Performance Boost
Source: CNet English
Yes, its size is a bit awkward as a handheld tablet and the RTX 4050 upgrade may not bring you the graphics performance you desire, but the HP Spectre x360 16 remains a versatile and well-designed two-in-one. Its audio-visual output is excellent and makes the system a great pick for general home use when you aren't using the giant OLED display for creative endeavors.

16.00":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
