91.4% 2-in-1 Convertible HP Spectre x360 16 (2024) laptop review: A powerful Core-Ultra allrounder with OLED | Notebookcheck
HP's Spectre x360 16 is a premium 2-in-1 convertible with a new, high-res 16:10 OLED touchscreen and pen input. While last year's predecessor still used an Intel Gen 12 CPU, this year's model has skipped a generation and now uses a Core Ultra with an NPU for AI applications. Furthermore, the device has been given even more updates and in this review, we will be looking at whether they have improved the 16-inch Spectre.

HP Spectre x360 16 (16-aa0000) review – The Best 2-in-1 Just Got Better?
Source: Laptop Media English
The HP Spectre x360 16 (16-aa0000) is a multipurpose laptop with transforming capabilities. It looks stealthy, modern, and even distinctive thanks to the diagonal corners on the sides. The all-metal build feels premium to the touch and the rigidity is on point. The input devices are impressive, the backlit keyboard is comfortable for long hours of work and the enormous touchpad is smooth and accurate. No matter if you are going to use the notebook for gaming or maybe 3D rendering, you can expect snappy overall performance. That’s possible thanks to the competent cooling solution with two large fans and a pair of long heat pipes. That’s why the power is always there when you need it because of the high CPU frequencies even under prolonged periods is 100% processor loads. In this scenario, the two fans remain near-silent which amazes us.

70% HP Spectre x360 16 (2024) review: just not enough power
Source: Digital Trends English
The Spectre x360 16 puts me in a difficult position. On the one hand, it’s an excellent 360-degree convertible 2-in-1 with a solid build, beautiful OLED display, and superior keyboard and touchpad. Its performance is very good for all but demanding creators. Therein lies the rub. As a 16-inch laptop, the Spectre should appeal most to that very market — demanding creators — but it’s simply too slow.

HP Spectre x360 16 (2024) hands-on: A premium 2-in-1 laptop that does it all
Source: Laptop Mag English
The 2024 HP Spectre x360 16 is a powerful, premium 2-in-1 that earns its high price with stellar performance and a sleek chassis design. This is a do-it-all device that can go from productivity tasks to gaming with ease. The inclusion of an Nvidia RTX 4050 discrete GPU takes performance up a notch, which is great for gaming as well as content creation. Overall, the Spectre x360 16 thoroughly impressed me in my hands-on testing. The large OLED display renders everything in bright, colorful detail and the speakers are some of the best I’ve ever heard on a laptop. If you’re looking for a top-tier 2-in-1, this one deserves your attention.

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.

HP: Founded in 1939, the US company is a major server and printer manufacturer and one of the leading IT companies in the world. Until 2015, the company was called Hewlett-Packard Company. After a split, the computer division was renamed HP Inc.
