Announced globally just a couple of months ago, HP’s new – and more portable – Spectre x360 convertible laptop has landed in Malaysia. Packed with Intel’s latest seventh generation Kaby Lake processors, this premium laptop carries a rather competitive price tag too. Well, in relation to its closest competition, anyway.
This new Spectre x360 differs quite a bit from its predecessor. Thanks to its new “micro-edge display bezel design,” the overall footprint of the laptop has been reduced, making for a more portable machine. According to HP, this shaved off almost 10mm from each side of the Spectre x360’s display; this laptop is also 13.8mm thin and weighs about 1.3kg.
Other specifications of the Spectre x360 are quite respectable too. It features a 13.3-inch 1080p touch display, Kaby Lake-based Core i5 or Core i7 processors paired with 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 256GB of fast PCIe M.2 SSD, a pair of USB Type-C ports – complete with support for Thunderbolt 3 – one full-sized USB-A port, as well as up to 15 hours of battery life.
As for the HP Spectre x360’s retail price, it starts from RM4,999 for the Core i5-7200U variant; the higher-end Core i7-7500U model, on the other hand, goes for RM5,999. According to HP Malaysia, the Spectre x360 will be available for purchase sometime this month locally; more information on the premium ultraportable can be found here.
