HP intros the Spectre x360 convertible PC

HP has introduced a new convertible PC called Spectre x360. The new computer combines cool looks, a slim chassis, and excellent performance and may be the perfect business solution for people who both work and travel.

“Customers are looking for beautiful devices that deliver quality, versatility and portability,” said Mike Nash, vice president, portfolio strategy and customer experience, Personal Systems, HP. “The HP Spectre x360 is transformational as it has the productivity of a high end notebook, tablet mode for on the go, tent mode for play and stand mode for watching entertainment in a stunning ultra-thin device.”

The Spectre x360 is a computer that is easy to carry around due to its relatively small 13.3-inch display and the CNC aluminum chassis that it comes with. This makes the computer to be just 15.9 mm in height while weighing 3.3 pounds (1.5 kilograms). The device features polished metal on the sides that is achieved using a single machined cut, giving it a jewelry-like finish in a natural silver color. The Spectre x360 comes in three versions: the first one sports an Intel Core i5 processor, a Full HD touchscreen display, 4 GB of LPDDR3 RAM and a 128 GB SSD for USD 899.99; the second version offers an Intel Core i7 processor, the same Full HD touchscreen display, 8 GB of LPDDR3 memory and a 256 GB SSD for USD 1149.99; the third one comes with an Intel Core i7 processor, Quad HD touchscreen display, 8 GB of LPDDR3 memory and a 512 GB SSD for USD 1399.99. A 56-watt hour battery powers the computer and provides up to 12.5 hours of battery life thanks to some innovative functions related to the display. The Full HD display versions offer a touch panel that is optically bonded to the display, which then increases brightness and pulls each pixel up to the surface of the display. On models with the Quad HD display, the HP Spectre x360 takes advantage of Panel Self Refresh (PSR) technology which holds images on the screen to allow portions of the PC to power down when nothing on-screen is moving. This results in power savings that prolong the life of the battery.

The rest of the features of the Spectre x360 include Wi-Fi connectivity with improved reliability, both full-size HDMI and DisplayPort 1.2 compatible ports to allow customers to access content across multiple screens, Intel Wireless Display technology, three USB 3.0 ports, a full-sized, 1.5 mm travel keyboard that eases typing while on the go and an extra-wide glass touchpad for improved day-to-day usability. Since the Spectre x360 is also a convertible PC, it includes four functional modes – the first one allows you to use it as a regular notebook, the second mode is tent mode for touchscreen entertainment, the third one is tablet mode for use while traveling and the fourth stand mode is for watching entertainment. Furthermore thanks to the used geared hinge design the HP Spectre x360 is as thin in tablet mode as it is in notebook mode.

The new computer is available now in the United States.
