Deal | Latest HP Spectre x360 13 Ice Lake convertible with Core i7 CPU and 512 GB SSD is only $800 right now
The Intel Ice Lake series is barely half a year old and steep price cuts are already popping up. The latest laptop on the sale rack is the HP Spectre x360 13 equipped with the high-end Core i7-1065G7 CPU for only $800 compared to the original launch price of $1300 USD just a few months ago.
This particular deal is notable because the Spectre series is home to HP's premier consumer laptops in contrast to the mid-range Envy series and budget Pavilion series. Furthermore, this specific model is the latest design meaning that the sale is not for some years-old system that nobody wants. The roomy 512 GB NVMe SSD and free active pen and carrying case are icing on the cake.
There are, however, a few catches. Firstly, the 8 GB of RAM is on the low side for any modern laptop and the modules here are soldered and non-upgradeable. Secondly, raw processor performance on the Spectre x360 13 is slower than we had expected when compared to other laptops with the same Core i7-1065G7 CPU. Nonetheless, build quality is solid if you can overlook these drawbacks.
