Windows 11 officially launches on October 5th, which means that a slew of PC OEMs will announce refreshed devices using the operating system over the next few weeks. Hewlett-Packard is getting the ball rolling early with the announcement of two new devices aimed at mobile professionals. The first is the Spectre x360 2-in-1, which features up to a 16-inch 4K+ (3840x2400) OLED touch display. For those keeping scores, the Spectre x360 previously topped out at 15 inches. Given that this announcement is happening before the launch of Intel’s 12th generation Alder Lake processors, the Spectre x360 is powered by the 11th generation Tiger Lake H35 family (up to a Core i7-11390H), features up to...

As time goes on, more laptops built around Intel's Evo platform are emerging, bringing with them a combination of specifications and features that meet or exceed specific baseline criteria for performance, battery life, connectivity, and a few other bits. These common threads weave through Intel's Tiger Lake silicon with Xe graphics, which are key cogs in the Evo machine. HP's latest refresh of its Spectre X360 13 for 2021 is one of those laptops, blending luxury styling with Intel's newest generation CPUs and graphics, and the result is an absolutely gorgeous convertible with plenty of zip. The gas mileage is decent on this convertible as well, which is something we'll talk about a little later.... Read more...

We could have predicted that HP would refresh its laptop lineup after Intel introduced its 8th Generation Core processor family in mobile form (Kaby Lake Refresh, or Kaby Lake-R, not to be confused with Coffee Lake on the desktop). By extension, our crystal ball, if we had one, would have also told us the new lineup would be faster than the previous generation, especially in multi-threaded applications where upgrading from a dual-core 7th Generation CPU to a quad-core 8th Generation chip would pay the biggest dividends. But what we could not have foreseen is that subtle changes beyond swapping out the engine that drives its systems would add up to an appreciably superior experience. Spoiler—it... Read more...
Hewlett-Packard is already gearing up for the holiday shopping season, and the company has four new products that it is unleashing on the public. They include the second generation Spectre x360 convertible, the ENVY Laptop, ENVY AIO 27 and the ENVY 27 Display. We’ll kick things off with the Spectre x360, which is now sporting 7th generation Intel Kaby Lake processors. Thanks to the more efficient Core processors and a larger 57.8 Whr battery, the Spectre x360 can now last 25 percent longer per charge, bringing total runtime to 15 hours. HP has also made the bezels even smaller by trimming 10mm from the right and left sides of the display. Couple that with a thinner chassis (made possible... Read more...
By now you're probably burned out on smartphone and VR buzz. We don't blame you, Mobile World Congress week has been a whirlwind akin to only that sort of frenzied pace we experience at CES. Of course we agree, mobile computing isn't just about smartphones and other pocketable devices, even if what's coming is finally breaking the mold with modularity and even possibly someday complete end user repairability and upgradability. Well, even though HP joined the MWC 2016 party with a smartphone of their own (Windows 10 Mobile no less and with impressive scalability), they also decided to drop in a photobomb of sorts, with their Spectre X360 15-inch bad boy (or girl) ultralight arriving to our test...

The era of laptops with crappy displays might be coming to an end. How so? The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas has turned into a launchpad for several new laptops and hybrids with high quality panels, and such is the case with HP and its refreshed Spectre x360 convertible. HP is rolling out two upgraded Spectre x360 models, one of which is its familiar 13.3-inch model, only now it's available with a Quad HD OLED display option. By switching over to OLED, customers can expect better color accuracy with a broader range of shades, improved contrast, and a higher color gamut at 103 percent, a significant improvement over 72 percent on WLED displays. The OLED panel HP is running with... Read more...
