HP Spectre X360 16G512G Review – Gorgeous And Ultra-Portable Laptop

The Spectre X360 made this first debut in the 2015 and it got so many attentions from the both of reviewers and users. The design is really that good and it also comes with high powerful performance. Then, again HP put it in such a good price, so there is no reason for people to miss it. Now, it backs again with the refreshed version in the 2017. It should be interesting to see at it closely.

The company added the new improvement on the design, super sharp touch screen display and now processor line up from Intel. With these great specifications, it’s very easy to call it as the best choice for convertible laptop on this year. Many people still have doubt on getting this one and this is the main reason why I decided to make a review about it.

That is what we are going to talk about here. We are going to talk about it further and see some improvements they got in few sectors. To make it easier for you to understand let’s we jump into the article.


The laptop is still coming with beautiful silver aluminum design. There are not too many differences and the only difference we got is located on the rear edge that now paired with hard angle pieces. I personally got so bored with the silver model and decided to get the black one that they called as Dark Ash. It costs with better price, but the price is actually really worth for this case.

Another nice improvement is also found on the hinge that now feels tight in comparable with previous model. This thing comes handy especially when we want to swipe the display into a tablet mode. I am pretty sure that you do not want to break it easily, but we should not be worry since the build quality is now better.

The slim and sleek design has a good price for this case. Now, you are only going to find only single USB ports and dual Thunderbolt ports. The measurement is only at 14 x 9.9 x 0.7 and making it impossible to fit more. Just prepare of your adapters because you are going to need it more than before.

Keyboard And Stylus

Spectre X360 2The keyboard is comfortable and allows me to type for more than 90 words per minute easily without any problem. The keyboard itself is quite shallow and need you to get of 80 grams of force in order to press the buttons. Many people will have not any problem with 1.3 millimeters travel keys distant, but you probably have to get used with for some hours.

HP also features a great stylus that works nicely with Windows 10. It has a hidden feature where we can easily charge it. We just need to simply twits its butt an it will shows you the USB type-c port and charge it with the single cable that it brings. For me, it looks better in comparable with iPad Pro that needs us to buy the AAA batteries that easily died in few days.

Performance And Battery Life

Intel I7 8th generation that combined with NVIDIA MX 150 results of a great performance into the system. The Intel processor is not only powerful, but also more efficient in term of power usage. I did not find any problem on doing any multi-tasking and run few games. For a test, I tried to run of Rocket League with normal setting at highest resolution and got stable of 80 to more than 100 FPS. The result is impressive thanks to its graphic card.

The battery life is not a big problem here. It could last for 8 hours and 25 minutes on standard usage with the WIFI is always connected. The result is even better when you put it on the power save mode and reduce the brightness. The battery easily last for a day if use it rarely. I was happy with it and thanks god its better than Surface Pro.
