HP Malaysia recently launched the Spectre x360. It’s a 13-inch 2-in-1 transformable notebook. While there are many comparable notebooks to choose from, here are a few reasons why you should choose the HP Spectre x360 over the other options.
360-degree rotation & gem-cut design
As you can probably gather from the name, the HP Spectre x360 is a transformable notebook, which allows you to flip the top lid all the way to the back of the notebook’s base. This grants you multiple use scenarios – you can use it as a conventional notebook, or you can fold it back and use it as a tablet. You also have the choice of holding it in your hand as you use it, or have it rest on a desk as a stand or tent.
And instead of the usual rectangular design, HP has given the Spectre x360 a really pretty looking body with angular cuts at the rear corners. The company calls this the gem-cut design, and it really looks the part, especially when you use it in its Stand mode. Its Poseidon blue is also a gorgeous colour that complements its design.
Audio by Bang & Olufsen
With a machine like this, you’ll want to use it for as many things as possible, be it for work or for entertainment. The HP Spectre x360 comes with four speakers that have been tuned by Bang & Olufsen. This ensures that you get sound quality that’s befitting of the content that it’s accompanying.
That’s not all. With HP Audio Boost, the speakers are able to produce loud sounds without sacrificing clarity. With all this combined, you’ll be able to take your entertainment everywhere you go, and not need to have specialised audio equipment like external speakers or headphones with you.
When you have a machine that you rely on for your work and entertainment needs, there’s no factor that’s more important than its battery life. And it’s not something you’ll need to worry about in the HP Spectre x360.
This is because the HP Spectre x360 comes with a 60Wh battery that can keep it going for up to 22.5 hours. This allows the HP Spectre x360 to keep up with you even if you work for almost the entire day. And when your other devices have run out of juice, the HP Spectre x360 is also able to charge them up while it’s asleep or hibernating.
Good connectivity options
In this wireless age, it’s important that your devices are armed with the best in such technologies. And the HP Spectre x360 comes with just what you need to make full use of them. With support for up to 802.11ac 2×2 Wi-Fi connectivity, this allows for quick flow of data, be it to or from the HP Spectre x360.
If you make use of wireless peripherals when working with the HP Spectre x360, then Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity has got you covered. This allows for both faster and more reliable data transmissions between Bluetooth devices.
Last but not least, the HP Spectre x360 comes equipped with the tools you need to keep your data safe, in this privacy-conscious age. It comes with an IR camera and a fingerprint reader, to ensure that you have to be the one to personally unlock the Spectre x360 before the data within can be accessed.
As an extra, the HP Spectre x360 also comes with a camera kill switch. This physical switch turns off the front facing camera, ensuring that it can’t be hijacked to spy on you. In addition, the model with the Intel Core i7 8565U processor also comes with the HP SureView privacy screen to ensure that no one but you gets to see what’s being displayed on the screen.
