HP Spectre x360 gets new Silver and Copper colors
The Spectre x360 is one of the better 2-in-1s available when compared to competitors like the Yoga or Toshiba Satellite Radius 15. The Aluminum-clad convertible manages to stay light and thin without sacrificing stability, so its tablet mode is much less cumbersome to use. HP tells us that this particular model has sold better than the company initially expected. Thus, it's only natural to update it with the latest Intel Skylake U-series.
Beyond the expected internal upgrades, HP has embellished a brand new coat of paint on the notebook. We're not gonna lie - it's dark Silver surfaces and Copper edges and corners are very attractive and rather unique in the HP product line. The new Envy and EliteBook refresh, for example, are the usual monotone Silver from top to bottom. The new classy color scheme is a breath of fresh air that we hope to see in more business and higher-end mainstream devices from HP.
Otherwise, this is the largely same convertible we know and love aside from a few software updates, updated Bang&Olufsen speakers, and an improved keyboard with a deeper 1.5 mm of travel.
