The Spectre x360 is the most striking 2-in-1 HP has ever made. Several people have even argued that it's the best laptop HP has ever made. The Spectre x360 is covered in large swaths of cold, smooth brushed metal. Its 13.3-inch display can be flipped and folded allowing one to use the system in tablet, kiosk, presentation, or laptop modes. Additionally,  the display is said to be bright and colourful.

Powering the 2.9-pound laptop is a 2.7-GHz Core i7-7500U processor paired with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. For sound, it uses a quad-speaker setup from hi-fi audio brand Bang & Olufsen. In terms of ports, it has dual Thunderbolt USB-C ports for everything from power delivery to display mirroring and there's also a single USB 3.1 Type-A port. There's no SD memory slot, but that's a small inconvenience in the grand scheme of things. According to current users, the Spectre x360 lasted  10 hours and 6 minutes for its battery test.
