The HP Spectre x360 is one of the better computers I have used and I have used many computers. At $899.99 the HP Spectre x360 competes with the non-touch 11-inch MacBook Air, Chrome OS Chromebook Pixel, and the non 2-in-1 Asus Zenbook. At a higher price though, the Lenovo Yoga 3 is also comparable. The HP Spectre x360 runs Windows 8.1 and is a convertible touchscreen device. To make this truly a review, I am writing this very review on the HP Spectre x360.
The HP Spectre x360 pulls itself above the pack due to its impeccable hardware. At 3.2 pounds and 15.9 millimeters thick, the HP Spectre x360 is very portable. But, even with its backlight keyboard and big trackpad the keyboard is not the best part. The convertible aspect to the HP Spectre x360 is its most important feature. It can rotate 360 degrees and has four main modes; stand mode which is mostly for watching movies and viewing pictures, tent mode which is mostly for watching videos and playing games, tablet mode which is mostly for entertainment, and notebook mode which is for all of your productive needs.
The software on the HP Spectre x360 is Windows 8.1. With Windows 8.1 you get a productive desktop with a playful start screen. Also, at the launch of Windows 10, which is sometime this summer, you will get a free upgrade on your HP Spectre x360. The HP Spectre x360 is a superb 2-in-1 device that is totally worth the cost. I think it is much better than the MacBook Air, Chromebook Pixel, and Asus Zenbook that cost pretty much the same amount.
