The Sleeker, Lighter HP Spectre x360

The new 2017 HP Spectre x360 boasts a new hinge design, which squeezes its form factor even thinner by 2 mm to just 13.8 mm. It is also much lighter at just under 1.3 kg, compared to 1.45 in the previous model. Even so, HP managed to pack in a larger 57.8 Whr battery, allowing it to run for up to 15 hours – 25% more battery life than its predecessor!

The 2017 HP Spectre x360 is powered by the 7th Generation Intel Core i7 or Core i5 processor, but it’s not just about raw performance. Its new micr-edge display design eliminated almost 10 mm from each side of the display, giving you a much larger display in the same form factor!
