HP Spectre x360 15 (2018) review

 

A 2-in-1 laptop that balances modernity and legacy

Adopting latest HP design ; Lots of hardware options ; Top-firing speakers ; Stylus included

A little thicker and heavier ; Repositioned touchpad feels small

With the latest HP Spectre x360 15, HP has managed to straddle the line between modernity and legacy, not to mention power and panache. This year’s version(s) isn’t any wild reimagining of the firm’s 15-inch 2-in-1 laptop, but rather a major refinement.

  (Rating Hidden)

Launched at the CES tech show in Las Vegas, HP reckons that this new Spectre x360 15 laptop will be the world's most powerful convertible PC. However, power means money, and this laptop won't come cheap. So, should you make the Spectre x360 your next...

HP Spectre x360 15-inch (2018) review

 

The muscular HP Spectre x360 15-inch can't handle a marathon.

Conventional but attractive design ; Great keyboard ; Excellent processor performance ; Fast enough for most games

Too thick and heavy for tablet use ; Mediocre 4K screen ; Disappointing battery life

The base HP Spectre x360 15-inch starts at $1,370. Our review unit, with Intel Core i7-8705G, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB solid state drive, is $1,720 (currently on sale for $1,620). A lot of money, to be sure, but not unusual for a flagship laptop. The...

HP Spectre x360 15 review

 

HP's latest premium 2-in-1 has lots of power, but is far from perfect.

Fast performance, even for some gaming ; Bright 4K display ; Included stylus

It’s a hefty handful ; Awkward touchpad placement and keyboard ; Battery life not the best

HP has some work to do with its approach to touchpads and keyboards on its consumer laptops. This is especially true if an upgraded machine like this unit is supposed to appeal to a user base that otherwise would flock to a Surface Book or a Macbook Pro.

Although it's hefty and unwieldy in Tablet mode, the HP Spectre x360 15's thoughtful design and top-notch performance make it an excellent 15-inch convertible laptop.

Good port selection. Comfortable keyboard. Bright 4K display. Excellent battery life. Included leather case.

Finicky touchpad. Heavy.

Bottom Line: Although it's hefty and unwieldy in Tablet mode, the HP Spectre x360 15's thoughtful design and top-notch performance make it an excellent 15-inch convertible laptop.

HP Spectre x360 15 review: With Kaby Lake-G, this laptop can do almost anything

 

HP's Spectre x360 15 sets a new performance bar for mainstream laptops, thanks to its Kaby Lake-G CPU. See what this marriage with Radeon RX Vega can do in our review.

A convertible powerhouse with few compromises ; Relatively good battery life for its power demands and configuration

A little heavy compared to the competition ; 4K screen could be a little brighter

There’s two conclusions to be made here. The first is the HP Spectre x360 15 itself. The high-end laptop has been around for two years now, but it took Intel’s Kaby Lake-G to make it sing, delivering plenty of performance to go with the looks.

HP Spectre 15 x360 2018 review: Made better by standard 4K, great battery life

 

It may not be the most portable machine, but it fixes many previous problems.

Sleek, updated design. ; Standard 4K display. ; Two Thunderbolt 3 ports. ; Windows Hello IR camera and fingerprint reader. ; Optional Kaby Lake G configuration with Radeon GPU. ; Great battery life.

Fingerprint reader and power button are separate. ; Trackpad is too small for the size of the device. ; Tilt Pen cannot be charged with a USB-C cable that supports SuperSpeed or Thunderbolt.

HP addressed most of the issues we had with last year's Spectre x360 15 without making too many additional compromises. The new Spectre x360 15 might have increased slightly in size and weight, but with that it gained a better Intel CPU and powerful...
