HP Spectre x360 14

  • Zippy performance with superb battery life
  • IR camera, fingerprint reader, webcam kill switch and mic mute button for increased privacy
  • Premium look and feel
  • Thunderbolt ports crowded to one side

With so many people still working from home, having a handful of office-friendly features goes a long way. For example, the 2021 version of the HP Spectre x360 14 is the company's first Spectre two-in-one with a taller 3:2-ratio display. While 16:9 wide-screen displays are nice for entertainment, a 3:2 display is roughly the same as a standard A4 sheet of paper and has about 20% more vertical viewing space than a 16:9 display. That means you do less scrolling when you're working. It also makes it more comfortable to use as a tablet, especially with the included active pen. 

But HP isn't alone with a taller display on a two-in-one.  Acer's Spin 5 , the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 , Asus ROG X13 Flow ,  Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga for business and Microsoft's Surface Pro  are all excellent options. So what else does the Spectre x360 14 going for it? Quite a lot actually, and while the ones I just mentioned (and the 16:9 14-inch Lenovo Yoga 9i and Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 ) are excellent in their own ways, the Spectre x360 14 is a better balance of features, performance and design. 

 width=

HP Spectre x360 14 is a tall-screen two-in-one.

The Spectre x360 14 is not a bargain, however. It's a premium model and is priced as such, currently starting at $1,170 on HP's site . It can be set up with an 11th-gen Core i5 or i7 processor, 8GB or 16GB of memory, up to 2TB of storage and a choice between two 13.5-inch 1,920-by-1,280-pixel displays, one with 400-nit brightness and the other with 1,000-nit brightness and HP's privacy screen feature, which makes it difficult for onlookers to see what's on your screen. You can also pick one up with a 3,000-by-2,000-pixel OLED display for $1,730 . Prices for the Spectre x360 14 starts at £1,200 in the UK and AU$3,199 in Australia.

The configuration I tested sells for $1,430 and is what I would consider good for most people, although I would personally spend the extra $80 for the 1000-nit display with the integrated privacy screen. The extra brightness is nice for working outside and the additional privacy is handy on a plane, in a hotel lobby or a coffee shop. 

 width=

No flimsy build quality here.

It looks the part

Regardless of what components you go with, the Spectre x360 14 looks and feels like a premium two-in-one. Admittedly, the laptop's angular gem-cut edges and cutaway corners might not be for everyone, but they do help it stand out and actually add to the functionality. The dual-chamfer edges make it easier to grip and open the x360 from the front or sides, for example.

Also, the cutaway corner on the right side has one of the laptop's two USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports. Since it charges via USB-C, the angled port allows you to charge the x360 while keeping the cord out of the way. It also helps keep your desk tidy and is nicer to use with a USB-C dock. 

 width=

All but one USB-A port are crammed into the rear right side.

The one minor complaint I have is HP put both of the laptop's USB-C ports on the same side (like a MacBook Air). Generally, it's not an issue, but since they can both be used for charging, it would be nice if the ports were split between the sides. This isn't uncommon with premium models, however, it seems like a missed opportunity to give people a little more flexibility when charging and more space for connecting other devices.

All together now

Many two-in-ones put things like the power button and volume controls on the sides so they're more accessible when used in tablet or kiosk mode. HP's done that with past x360s but not here; the power button and the webcam kill switch are now integrated into the keyboard along with a mic mute button and a fingerprint reader. 

 width=

The touchpad matches the screen ratio.

HP's keyboards on its Spectre models are some of my favorites and that's still the case here. It's comfortable, easy to read and backlit. The precision touchpad is also excellent and matches the 3:2 screen ratio. HP includes one of its full-size USB-C rechargeable MPP 2.0 tilt pens for writing and drawing on the display. It doesn't store in the body, but it magnetically attaches to help keep it from rolling off your desk. HP bundles a laptop sleeve with the laptop that has a pen loop on it for storage.

What's also nice to have included here is the depth-sensing IR camera you can use for signing in with face recognition. That way no matter which mode you're using the Spectre x360 14 in, you'll be about to unlock it just by looking at the camera. It just makes getting right to work that much easier.

 width=

The Spectre x360 14 is slim and light at 3 pounds.

All about Evo

I've tested a bunch of Intel Evo-verified laptops at this point and they've all lived up to the platform's promise. The  Evo label  means the system is tested to hit certain mobile performance requirements such as getting at least 9 hours of battery life with normal use, recharging quickly, nearly instantly waking and connecting to Wi-Fi and being just as responsive on battery power as it is plugged in. All of these things are true for this HP. 

While its performance wasn't quite as fast in our benchmark tests as other similarly configured systems, it held its own. And in general use, it certainly never felt sluggish or remotely slow. It's not a gaming laptop or meant for content creation, though it can handle casual use for both. Battery life was long, too, getting 14 hours, 22 minutes on our streaming video test and it had no problem getting through a workday and beyond with occasional breaks.

 width=

A killer combination

The HP Spectre x360 14 is unquestionably excellent. With a display that's as tall as a 15.6-inch laptop but only as wide as a 13.3-inch model, you get more vertical space to work without impacting portability. The aluminum body gives you that high-quality feel you expect at this price. It's loaded with privacy features that make it great for remote work. And with several configuration options, you can tailor it for your performance and battery life needs. If the tall screen isn't what you want, though, Lenovo's Yoga 9i is equally impressive or you can check out other options on our list of the best two-in-ones .

HP’s Spectre x360 14 review: the best 2-in-1 you can buy

Perfection, for a price.

Best Laptop 2023: HP Spectre x360 14

I have used a heck of a lot of laptops in the past year, and some of them are quite nice. MacBooks have nailed the “premium” look and feel for years, and I’ll never waste an opportunity to gush about the build quality of Dell’s XPS line . 

But I’ve never touched a consumer laptop as gorgeous as the Spectre x360 14. The new Spectre’s sturdy black body, lustrous accents, and boldly sharp edges would make it a standout among convertible laptops across the board, even if it didn’t have a slew of other excellent qualities — which, from its 3:2 screen and packaged stylus to its stellar performance and battery life, it absolutely does.

With a starting MSRP of $1,299.99 ($1,589.99 as tested) the Spectre x360 is easily my new favorite 2-in-1 laptop. Today’s market is full of capable convertibles that look good, work well, and do certain things really well. But while the Spectre x360 14 isn’t a perfect laptop, it tops the pack in almost every area. It’s a stylish chassis, premium panel options, stylus support, a powerful processor, and fantastic battery in one. It’s proof that you can have it all — for a price. 

The HP Spectre line is second to none when it comes to design, and this latest model is no exception. Like its 13-inch predecessor , the Spectre x360 14 is made of CNC-machined aluminum. Also like its siblings, you can get the 14 in “nightfall black,” “Poseidon blue,” or “natural silver.” Take a look at some pictures before selecting your color because they each have pretty different vibes. The nightfall black option has a sophisticated, svelte aesthetic that looks tailor-made for a boardroom. Poseidon blue is friendlier and probably the one I’d go for myself. 

The accents, though, are what make the Spectre stand out from the legions of other black laptops out there. Lustrous trim borders the lid, the touchpad, and the deck. The hinges share its color, as does the HP logo on its lid. It’s bold without being obnoxious. The two rear corners are diamond-shaped, and one of them houses a Thunderbolt 4 port on its flat edge. (On the sides live an audio jack, a USB-A, a microSD slot, and an additional Thunderbolt 4, which is a decent selection — gone is the trapdoor that covered the USB-A port on the 13-inch model.) And the edges are all beveled, making the notebook appear thinner than it actually is (it’s 0.67 inches thick). Careful craftsmanship is evident here — I’m not exaggerating when I say this Spectre feels like artwork.  

The HP Spectre x360 14 sits open on top of a piano. The screen displays a blue and white background.

And, as the “x360” moniker implies, the Spectre is a 2-in-1. At 2.95 pounds, it’s a bit heavy to use as a tablet for long periods, but it’s smooth and easy to fold and the hinges are quite sturdy. Unlike with many convertibles, there’s barely any wobble when you use the touchscreen. The display is also stylus-compatible; the Spectre ships with HP’s MPP2.0 pen, which attaches magnetically to the side of the chassis.

Despite its design similarities, this Spectre looks noticeably different from its ancestors, and that’s because of the screen. The new model has a 3:2 display, which is 13 percent taller than the 16:9 panel on last year’s device. (It’s kept the same 90 percent screen-to-body ratio.)

There’s barely any wobble when you use the touchscreen

Microsoft’s Surface devices have been using the 3:2 aspect ratio for years, and I’m glad that the Spectre line is finally making the switch . If you’re used to using a 16:9 display (which many modern Windows laptops have) and you give a 3:2 a shot, you’ll see what I mean. You have significantly more vertical space, which means less scrolling up and down and less zooming out to fit everything you want to see. It makes multitasking significantly easier without adding much size to the chassis. 

This 3:2 panel can come in a few different forms. My test unit has an FHD option that HP says should reach 400 nits of brightness. I measured it multiple times, but it only reached 285 in my testing — which is dimmer than I’d hope to see from a device at this price point. I’ve reached out to HP to see what’s up and will update this review if it turns out to be a bug. (Of course, 285 nits is still more than enough for indoor office work.) 

The HP Spectre x360 keyboard angled to the right, seen from above.

In addition to the FHD display, you can opt for a 3000 x 2000 OLED panel (HP didn’t provide a brightness estimate for this one; LaptopMag measured it at 339 nits) or a 1,000-nit option with HP’s Sure View Reflect technology, which makes the screen difficult to read from the sides. This will mostly be a benefit for business users.

In terms of other specs, the base model pairs the 400-nit screen with a Core i5-1135G7, 8GB of memory, and 256GB of storage (plus 16GB of Intel Optane). Then, there are a few upgrades you can go for. My test unit, priced at $1,589.99, keeps the base model’s screen but has a heftier processor (the quad-core Core i7-1165G7) and double its RAM and storage. I think this model is a good option for most people — it gets you a top processor and a good amount of storage without too stratospheric of a price tag. If you want to get fancier, you can get the OLED screen and 1TB of storage (plus 32GB of Intel Optane) for $1,699, or the Sure View screen and 2TB of storage for $1,959.99.  

Of course, laptops aren’t just for looking at, but you’re not compromising on performance to get this build quality. The Spectre is verified through Intel’s Evo platform, which means that it offers a number of Intel-selected benefits including Thunderbolt 4, Wi-Fi 6, all-day battery life, quick boot time, fast charging, and reliable performance. In my testing, it more than surpassed those standards. 

The back left corner of HP Spectre x360 14 up close.

The system handled my heavy workload of Chrome tabs, downloads, and streams speedily with no issues. Battery life was excellent; I averaged 10 hours of continuous use with the screen around 200 nits of brightness. That means if your daily tasks are similar to mine, the Spectre should make it through your workday with no problem. (You’ll likely get less if you opt for the OLED panel.) The processor also includes Intel’s Iris Xe integrated graphics. While you wouldn’t want to use those for serious gaming, they’re capable of running lighter fare. 

Elsewhere, I have almost no complaints. The backlit keyboard is snappy with a solid click — it’s easily one of my favorites. The speakers sound good, with very audible bass and percussion. There’s a fingerprint sensor to the left of the arrow keys and a Windows Hello camera, neither of which gave me any trouble.

I have almost no complaints

Apart from the dimness, there are only two things about this laptop that I’m not in love with. They’re both minor; the fact that I’m even mentioning either of them in this review is a testament to how excellent this device is. 

The first is the touchpad. It’s quite smooth and roomy (16.6 percent larger than that of last year’s Spectre x360 13) and handles scrolling and gestures just fine. But it’s noticeably stiffer than some of the best touchpads on the market. The press required to physically click is firm enough that I ended up doing it with my thumb most of the time. On the likes of the Dell XPS 13 and the MacBook, clicking with a finger is much less of a chore. When I first clicked with the integrated buttons, I also had to overcome some initial resistance to hit the actuation point (put plainly, every click felt like two clicks). This issue resolved itself during my second day of testing, but it’s still a hiccup I generally only see with cheaper items. 

The HP Spectre x360 angled to the right, seen from above, with the lid half closed.

Secondly, bloatware. There are a number of junk programs preloaded onto the Spectre and several pinned to the taskbar. Dropbox, ExpressVPN, McAfee, and Netflix are all on here, and I got all kinds of notifications from them. This is an oddity at this price point, and seeing cheap McAfee alerts popping up on the Spectre is like seeing really ugly bumper stickers on a Ferrari. This software doesn’t take too long to uninstall, but I’m disappointed to see it nonetheless. 

But those are really the only two complaints I have, and neither of them should stop you from buying this laptop. It’s beautiful to look at and a dream to use. I found myself using it in my free time instead of my personal device (which almost never happens with review units — I really like my products). 

Agree to Continue: HP Spectre x360 14

Every smart device now requires you to agree to a series of terms and conditions before you can use it — contracts that no one actually reads. It’s impossible for us to read and analyze every single one of these agreements. But we started counting exactly how many times you have to hit “agree” to use devices when we review them, since these are agreements most people don’t read and definitely can’t negotiate.

To start using the HP Spectre x360 14, you’ll need to agree to the following:

  • A request for your region
  • A request for your keyboard layout
  • License agreements for Windows, HP, and McAfee

You can also say yes or no to the following:

  • Microsoft account (can be bypassed if you stay offline)
  • Windows Hello fingerprint recognition and face recognition
  • Privacy settings (speech recognition, location, Find My Device, sharing diagnostic data, inking and typing, tailored experience, advertising ID)
  • Customize your device for gaming, schoolwork, creativity, entertainment, family, or business
  • Sync an Android phone
  • OneDrive backup
  • Allow Microsoft to collect and use information for Cortana’s personalized experiences and suggestions, including: location and location history, contacts, voice input, speech and handwriting patterns, typing history, search history, calendar details, content and communication history from Microsoft services, messages, and apps
  • Provide your name, region, and contact information to HP
  • Allow HP to use information about your system to provide customer support, and enable your PC to show HP contact options, warranty information, and support messages
  • Allow HP to use information about your system to improve HP products and services
  • Allow HP to use your contact details and information about your system to send personalized news and offers

That’s six mandatory agreements and 20 optional agreements to use the Spectre x360 14.

When we’re evaluating a convertible laptop at the Spectre’s price point, the big question is how it compares to the gold standard of Windows convertibles, the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 . The XPS has a few advantages: it’s a bit thinner and lighter, its touchpad is less stiff, and it has a more modest look that some users might prefer. 

But for me, the ball game is close but clear. The Spectre x360’s meticulous craftsmanship, classy aesthetic, and 3:2 screen put it over the top. It also edges out the XPS in a few key areas: the keyboard is more comfortable, the battery life is better, and Dell’s closest-priced configuration to this unit only has half its storage. The Spectre’s smaller amenities that the XPS lacks — like the bundled stylus, the USB-A port, the blue color, and the OLED option — are icing on the cake. 

If you’re looking for a premium Windows convertible with a classy aesthetic, that makes the Spectre a no-brainer purchase. This is HP at its best; it’s a luxury laptop in pretty much every area. I can’t imagine that it won’t be the next laptop I buy.

Price: $1,669 as reviewed CPU:  Intel Core i7-1165G7 Display:  14-inch 1920 x 1280 FHD (as tested) or 3000 x 2000 OLED touchscreen Battery:  12:11 (tested) Memory:  16GB Storage:  256GB to 512GB SSD Dimensions:  11.75 x 8.67 x 0.67 inches Weight:  2.95 pounds

The HP Spectre x360 14 is a powerhouse of a convertible laptop, featuring top-tier hardware that provides excellent performance for both work and play. Available in three colors (silver, black, and navy blue) and sporting an ultra-thin profile of just .67 inches, the HP Spectre x360 brings a touch of sophisticated style that perfectly complements its internal components. Whether your office is wherever you happen to be that day, or you're looking to upgrade your home laptop, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better option.  

Buyers be warned though, this 2-in-1 laptop comes at a steep price. The entry-level models start at $1,369 (though HP is discounting that to $1,249 at time of publication), meaning many customers will be left searching for more affordable options. However, if you're willing to spend a bit more to get a quality laptop that will serve you well for years to come, or just want to be able to buy the best of the best no matter the cost, the HP Spectre x360 14 is an excellent option. 

HP Spectre x360 14 review: Pricing and availability

As mentioned earlier, this laptop's impressive power and gorgeous design comes at a high price. With a starting price of $1,369 it's comparable to laptops like the Core i7 Dell XPS 13 ($1,259) and the MacBook Pro 13 ($1,299). You can pick one up through the official HP store, the Intel website, or you can try your luck at major retailers if you're hoping to get lucky with a good deal or sale price. 

I tested the $1,669.99 version loaded up with an Intel Core i7-1165G7 2.8GHz quad core CPU (that can be overclocked to 4.7GHz), 512GB solid state drive, 16GB RAM, integrated Intel Xe Graphics, and 14-inch FHD touchscreen display. 

It comes packaged with a rechargeable MPP2.0 Tilt Pen, which is perfect for digital artists or anyone who prefers to take handwritten notes during class or meetings, as well as a faux leather protective sleeve to prevent damage while it's packed away in your backpack, tote bag, or carry-on luggage. I suggest springing for the 1TB SSD and 2K OLED screen options to ensure that you have plenty of space for projects and optimal color ranges if you work with photography, video, or graphics.  

HP Spectre x360 14 review: Design

The chassis for the HP Spectre x360 14 is made of machined aluminum and is available in three colors. The Poseidon Navy model I was able to test looks stunning, and was the envy of the household.

The 180-degree hinges feel sturdy and solid while folding the laptop into tablet mode or back into traditional laptop mode; there is virtually zero side-to-side play, which is great for long-term durability.

The laptop weighs just under 3 pounds, and manages to pack a 14-inch screen into an 11-inch housing; measuring just 0.67 inches thin, this laptop easily slips into almost any bag for commutes, business travel, or heading to the library to finish a term paper.

The included protective sleeve is made of sleek, black faux leather with plenty of cushioning to protect your hefty investment from flexing, scratches, and minor bumps and knocks.

The included rechargeable MPP2.0 Tilt Pen looks and feels like a high-quality traditional ink pen, and the input buttons are perfectly placed for use in either the left or right hand; the pen comes with two additional nibs for quick and easy replacement if one becomes damaged or worn.

HP Spectre x360 14 review: Ports

The model I tested featured two USB-C ports for both connectivity and charging, a USB Type-A port, headphone/microphone jack, microSD card reader, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.0 for wireless peripheral and device connections.

However, the Bluetooth 5.0 connection only allows for setting up 2 simultaneous devices; bad news for anyone who has invested in multiple wireless peripherals like headsets and mice, or needs to connect multiple mobile devices to their laptop. 

With Wi-Fi 6 compatibility you can take advantage of next-gen wireless internet speeds in order to transfer files to and from cloud storage services like Dropbox or Google Drive, making external physical storage a moot point. It's also perfect for anyone who has frequent video calls and virtual meetings and needs a fast, reliable connection.

HP Spectre x360 14 review: Display

You can choose between a 1920 x 1280 FHD or a 3000 x 2000 OLED touchscreen for your new Spectre x360 14. For most applications at work or at home, the full HD screen will be just fine. HP claims it can deliver up to 1000 nits of brightness, depending on your customization options, meaning that you'll be able to watch videos or drop into virtual meetings and visual calls in almost any lighting environment. It also has incredibly wide viewing angles.

The screen gets bright enough for most settings, and in our testing we recorded an average brightness of 365 nits across the whole display. That's as good as Apple's latest MacBook Air (365 nits) but a bit short of competitors like the Dell XPS 13 (469 nits). The colors look great, too; in our testing the HP Spectre x360 14 with a 1920 x 1080 FHD display covered 105.3% of the sRGB color spectrum, beating out the XPS 13 (97.9%) but falling behind the MacBook Air (114%).  

I tested our review unit with YouTube and Hulu in both tablet and laptop mode, and even at extreme side angles, colors remained vivid and true-to-life. If you're a digital artist or work in video production, you may want to spring for the OLED touchscreen for more consistent brightness and enhanced color and detailing. 

Both options are made with Gorilla Glass for durability when using touch controls either with your hands or the Tilt Pen. The glass feels smooth and sturdy, with very little flex, so you won't have to worry about damaging your screen when you swipe, write, or tap away at your programs and files.

HP Spectre x360 14 review: Keyboard and Tilt Pen

The chiclet-style keyboard has an ultra-low profile that feels great to type on, though if you're used to mechanical or optical switch keyboards, it may feel a bit "mushy" and takes some getting used to. It has two levels of backlighting to make it easy to type in almost any setting, and you can turn off the backlight completely for bright rooms or when it would be a distraction, like in a meeting. 

Both the display and trackpad allow for intuitive gesture controls; you can pinch to zoom, swipe, and tap the screen, and the trackpad allows for pinch zoom and quick scrolling. Taking notes with the Tilt Pen feels almost identical to writing with traditional pen and paper, and the program that parses handwriting into digitized text is great at picking out words and letters even if you're like me and have horrible penmanship. 

If you're left-handed, you may want to use sticky keys to lock the Windows Start button and taskbar so you don't accidentally close out of your document or art program in the middle of a project. While a minor annoyance, it doesn't detract from the ease of use offered by the Tilt Pen for when you want to make comments on a report or PowerPoint, write yourself a to-do list, or knock out some preliminary sketches for clients. The pen has two input buttons that can act as right and left click would on a mouse or they can be customized to suit whichever program you're working in for personalized shortcuts; this is great for quickly switching brushes in Photoshop or effects in Lightroom.

HP Spectre x360 14 review: Audio

HP partnered with Bang & Olufsen to pack some high-quality audio into this slim little laptop. The four-speaker array located above the keyboard delivers clean, clear sound in both laptop and tablet mode. 

While many laptop speakers can sound "tinny" or have a "buzz" at high volumes, the Bang & Olufsen speakers sound amazing even at full volume. Everything from dialogue in movies and shows to industrial noise rock and techno comes through crisp and clear. I put on some podcasts and personal playlists while doing chores around the house and was able to hear everything clearly even in other rooms across the house. 

The HP Audio Boost software included with the laptop allows you to create custom audio mixers to suit your tastes in music and switch between several presets quickly and easily when you're in the mood for something different.  

HP Spectre x360 14 review: Performance

The Intel Core i7 CPU in our review unit can handle just about anything you can throw at it, from typical work programs like Google Docs, PowerPoint, and Chrome to streaming movies, music, and even casual gaming.

While I wouldn't classify the Spectre x360 14 as a gaming laptop, you shouldn't have any issues playing games like Minecraft, Among Us, or Fortnite for a few hours with friends. More graphically-demanding games like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will definitely push the laptop to its limits, so maybe keep that to your desktop or console. 

In terms of raw numbers, the HP Spectre x360 14 review unit we tested put up a respectable average score of 4,937 in our Geekbench 5 general performance test, beating the similarly-priced Asus ZenBook Flip S UX371 (3,880) but falling behind competitors like the Dell XPS 13 (5,254).

The SSD is speedy enough, as evidenced by the fact that in our file transfer test (which measures how fast a laptop clones 25GB of files) the Spectre x360 14 moved files at a decent clip of 764MBps. That's decent, but behind competitors like the Dell XPS 13 (806MBps) and the ZenBook Duo 14 (921 MBps).

If you're looking to edit video on the go, know that our Spectre x360 14 review unit performed decently in our Handbrake video editing test, converting a 4K video to 1080p in just over 17 minutes. That's better than the 18 minutes it took our Dell XPS 13 review unit to complete the same task, but far slower than the 7:44 it took the MacBook Air to get it done.

HP Spectre x360 14 review: Battery life

This laptop sports an updated 4-cell lithium-ion battery that HP rates at 21.5 hours running video playback; our web surfing tests put the battery life just north of 12 hours, which is more realistic for a typical work day. That's better than the Dell XPS 13 (11:7 as tested) and nearly as good as the Lenovo Yoga 9i (11:15 as tested). More importantly, it means you can go all day, or several days, before you need to even think about plugging in. 

When you do need to top up your battery, the USB-C port supports rapid charging, giving you up to 50 percent battery in just 45 minutes, so you can recharge over your lunch break or while you're in a meeting.  

HP Spectre x360 14 review: Security

The model I tested had what I consider to be baseline options for security in work and home laptops. It had a physical camera shutter and dedicated mute button for the integrated microphone, which is helpful for both virtual meetings and making sure no one peeks into your office or listens in on your calls without you knowing. 

If you deal with sensitive information or creative projects, the integrated fingerprint reader creates a password-free log-in shortcut for important programs, files, and accounts to prevent theft and unauthorized access. The integrated webcam has infrared capabilities and works with Windows Hello to allow facial recognition for another layer of protection.  

HP Spectre x360 14 review: Cooling

Since this is a slim 2-in-1 laptop, there isn't much room for air or liquid cooling to keep the machine running at optimal temperatures. However, the built-in fans do a decent job of drawing waste heat away from vital components like your CPU and forcing it out of the vents in the bottom of the laptop. 

During typical office work, the laptop doesn't ever get too warm to the touch, and the fans stay fairly quiet, which is great for anyone who works in an open-concept office or shares workspace with others. The HP Command Center app allows you to choose from four fan operation presets or manually control the cooling fan to suit your work. You can also use this app to monitor your fan speed and CPU temperature to catch problems before they escalate.  

HP Spectre x360 14 review: Verdict

The HP Spectre x360 14 is a great long-term investment for anyone looking to upgrade their mobile workstation. You can customize the laptop's configuration on the HP official store site for the optimum balance between power, performance, and design. 

Of course, if you're not tied to Windows, the Apple MacBook Air with M1 will give you better battery life, better colors, and better photo/video editing performance for roughly the same price.

On the flip side, MacBook users looking to move to a Windows-based computer will love the familiar feel of the HP Spectre x360 14's keyboard and USB-C connections as well as the gorgeous FHD and 2K OLED displays. The 2-in-1 convertible form factor is ideal for anyone who wants to streamline their workflow and eliminate redundant devices like tablets; the 180-degree hinges make it a breeze to switch from a traditional laptop to a tablet for watching videos or drawing. 

While the price is steep, the top-notch components are worth the extra cash in order to keep up with current and next-generation graphics and processing needs as well as internet and wireless connectivity.

HP Spectre x360 14 review: they did it again

Mark Coppock

“The HP Spectre x360 14 is the prettiest, smartest, and fastest convertible 2-in-1 you can buy.”
  • Attractive aesthetic
  • Very good productivity performance
  • Good to great battery life
  • Excellent haptic touchpad
  • Superb 120Hz OLED display
  • Superior audio quality
  • No discrete GPU option
  • A bit expensive

The HP Spectre x360 has, for many years, maintained a top spot for me as one of the best laptops. But over time, the design hasn’t changed all that much, with multiple years of small CPU bumps. All that’s changed with the new Spectre x360 14, though.

Specs and configurations

Design and ports, keyboard and touchpad, ai everywhere, performance, an excellent oled display and much-improved audio, meaningful improvements add up to a superior 2-in-1.

I was able to conduct an early review of the laptop, which made its debut at CES 2024 . Sporting a slightly larger display, a smoother aesthetic, and a new haptic feedback touchpad, there’s nothing here but improvements. Everything considered, HP’s Spectre x360 14 is going to be hard to beat in 2024.

  • Why the latest ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 8 isn’t worth the upgrade
  • HP Envy x360 13 vs. Dell XPS 13: the best tiny laptop?
  • Asus ZenBook S 13 Flip vs. HP Envy x360 13: it comes down to price

Pricing is still being finalized, but as of the writing of this review, the Spectre x360 14’s starting price is $1,650. Presumably, that’s for the entry-level configuration of an Intel Core Ultra 5 125H CPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. My review configuration with a Core Ultra 7 155H, 32GB of RAM, and a 2TB SSD is $1,970, which would be a very reasonable price for a heavily upgraded machine.

These prices are subject to change when the laptop starts rolling out, but unless they drop considerably, the Spectre x360 14 is solidly in premium laptop territory.

From a distance, the Spectre x360 14 looks a lot like its predecessor. Up close, though, it’s a different story. The notched display corners remain, with one housing a Thunderbolt 4 port and the other a 3.5mm audio jack, retaining the Spectre’s most iconic — and convenient — design element.

But the chassis edges have been smoothed out and now carry the same color as the rest of the chassis, specifically Nightfall black, Slate blue, or Sahara silver. Those changes create a more minimalist aesthetic that I find even more attractive than the previous generation. You won’t mistake the Spectre x360 14 for a MacBook Pro , but I think it looks just as good. The Spectre also looks great with the display open, with thin speaker grills flanking a spacious, off-color keyboard with bold lettering and a large haptic touchpad that takes up the available space on the palm rest.

The Spectre x360 14 also retains the line’s usual excellent build quality, with no bending, flexing, or twisting in the CNC-machined lid and chassis. The hinge isn’t quite as smooth as Apple’s or the dual-clutch version Dell uses on its XPS laptops, but then the Spectre x360 14 is a convertible 2-in-1 and requires a different mechanism to support the full 360-degree rotation.

Speaking of that, the bottom display bezel is larger to accommodate a 2-in-1’s flexibility, giving the Spectre a slightly less modern appearance.

Interestingly, despite boasting a display that’s half an inch larger, the new model is only slightly wider than the previous model. It’s equally deep and thin, and it weighs just a few ounces more. That makes it just as portable while offering significantly more screen real estate. The MacBook Pro 14 is around the same width and depth, but it’s thinner and heavier. That makes the MacBook Pro feel denser in hand.

Connectivity is OK for a 14-inch laptop, with a pair of Thunderbolt 4 ports and a single USB-A port to go with a 3.5mm audio jack. Some 14-inch laptops, like the MacBook Pro 14, also include an HDMI port, and the new Spectre drops the microSD card reader that was in the previous model. That’s disappointing. Wireless connectivity, though, is an improvement thanks to the laptop’s Meteor Lake chipset, with Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth 5.4 to go with Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3.

The Spectre x360 14’s keyboard has large keycaps and plenty of key spacing, and the switches are light and clicky. They feel less snappy than past versions, though, so I wasn’t quite as enamored with them. Apple’s Magic Keyboard remains the best, and I’d rank Dell’s XPS keyboard ahead of this one as well. It’s still a very good keyboard, just not as good as I remember.

In a move that’s just starting to gain momentum industrywide, HP has finally included a haptic touchpad on the Spectre. I’ve used a few haptic touchpads on other Windows laptops, and none have been as good as Apple’s Force Touch version. They’ve been less responsive with their fabricated clicks, and some have had issues holding onto clicks too long, causing an unnatural feel and inadvertent screen interactions.

The Spectre x360 14’s implementation, though, is almost as good as Apple’s. Surprisingly, it’s larger than the touchpad on the MacBook Pro 14, and it feels just as natural. In this regard, the Spectre is the first Windows laptop that rivals Apple. The only thing missing from HP’s touchpad is Apple’s Force Click feature, which provides a convenient means to quickly access additional functionality.

Of course, the Spectre x360 14 is a convertible 2-in-1, so it also has a touch display with active pen support. That sets it apart from any MacBook, and I miss it when using an Apple machine. HP’s pen support is excellent, and if you like to draw or take notes, then the Spectre x360 14 is a great platform — assuming you don’t mind holding onto a tablet that weighs more than 3 pounds.

AI is one of the hot topics of 2024 , and much is being made of the Neural Processing Unit (NPU) integrated into Meteor Lake to speed up various AI tasks. To date, just how AI will be used in our day-to-day computing hasn’t been fully explained, but HP gives a hint in its press materials, where it talks a good deal about how AI has improved several key aspects of the Spectre’s performance.

To begin with, HP has always offered some of the highest-resolution webcams, and they’ve bumped up the Spectre x360 14’s version from 5MP to 9MP with built-in, hardware-enabled lowlight adjustments. More than that, though, HP also touts AI-reduced power usage when Windows Studio Effects is utilized for better background blurring and automatic framing. The webcam and associated software worked well, but I couldn’t say it’s better than other non-AI incarnations.

The Spectre x360 14 also uses the NPU to drive its user presence-sensing technology. Thanks to the infrared camera that also supports Windows 11 Hello facial recognition, the Spectre can lock the laptop and put it to sleep when the user walks away and unlock and wake the laptop when the user returns. The screen can also dim when the user looks away from it.

AI is further used to enhance how performance, fan noise, and heat are optimized based on open apps, the Spectre’s physical placement, and how much battery life remains. HP even mentions AI in the context of automatically adjusting the display’s refresh rate from 48Hz to 120Hz.

It’s unclear how AI makes these features better than they’ve been on earlier models, but presumably, things are smoother and more responsive. That’s not something I could test, however.

HP also gives some other examples of how the NPU can be utilized, including faster generative AI performance in GIMP’s Stable Diffusion function and AI video editing using the Adobe Premiere Pro beta.

Perhaps most interesting was a reference to “Superpower,” a personal AI assistant that runs on the NPU and can perform actions like managing action items from a meeting, summarizing a topic, writing an email, and other tasks. I couldn’t test that functionality either, but clearly, AI will impact our computing in some unforeseen ways.

AI aside, Meteor Lake is also supposed to provide faster performance and better efficiency with a new architecture involving technical details that are beyond the scope of this review. I tested the Spectre with the Core Ultra 7 155H, a 28-watt CPU with 16 cores (six Performance, eight Efficient, and two Low Power Efficient) and 22 threads running at up to 4.8GHz. The laptop can also be configured with the Core Ultra 5 125H with 14 cores (four Performance, eight Efficient, and two LP Efficient) and 18 threads running at up to 4.5GHz.

Specs and architectures aside, my Spectre x360 14 review unit provided CPU-intensive performance that falls somewhere in between the 28-watt, 12-core Core i7-1360P and the 45-watt, 14-core Core i7-13700H. Looking at our database, the Spectre performs more closely to the Lenovo Yoga 9i Gen 8 with the Core i7-1360P than the Asus Zenbook 14X OLED with the Core i7-13700H. That is, it was around as fast as the Yoga in multi-core processes while being slower than both in single-core tasks. Notably, Apple’s M3 processor provides around the same multi-core performance, again with faster single-core performance.

I also ran the PugetBench Premiere Pro benchmark, which runs in a live version of Adobe’s Premiere Pro and can use the GPU to speed up various processes. I wouldn’t normally run that benchmark on this class of laptops, but I wanted to see how the Intel Arc graphics performed. On Meteor Lake, Arc is Intel’s newest integrated graphics, utilizing eight Intel Xe GPU cores and promising faster performance than the previous Intel Iris Xe graphics.

Unfortunately, the Spectre didn’t perform well, hitting just 258 in the benchmark. We haven’t run this version of PugetBench on any laptops with Intel Iris graphics, but the Acer Swift X 14 with a Core i7-13700H and the entry-level Nvidia RTX 4050 discrete GPU managed a score of 545. That’s right, the Spectre was just half as fast. Consider that the fastest laptop we’ve tested is the MacBook Pro 14 with the M3 Max, which managed a score of 889.

It’s still early, and it’s entirely possible that firmware updates will improve things. So far, though, Meteor Lake isn’t shaking up laptop performance — the Spectre x360 14 is a strong performer for demanding productivity use and unsuitable for anything but light creative work. It’s fast enough, just not a game-changer.

Note that I didn’t test gaming on the Spectre x360 14. My editor, Luke Larsen, covered gaming in his overview of Meteor Lake in the Acer Swift Go 14 . I did run the 3DMark Time Spy, though, where the Intel Arc graphics hit a score that’s improved over Intel Iris Xe, but less than half that of the RTX 4050.

That result and Luke’s experience means that while you can game a little better on the Spectre than on the previous model, the difference won’t be significant. The laptop’s going to let you run older titles, and you’ll need to turn the graphics all the way down if you want to run any modern games.

It’s also worth noting that HP doesn’t sell an option with discrete graphics. GPUs have always been a weakness of the Spectre series of laptops, and that’s also true here. Now that the Spectre x360 is in the 14-inch category, its lack of an option for something like an RTX 4050 is more apparent. Look at the new Dell XPS 14 , for example.

The next important question regarding Meteor Lake is battery life. Efficiency is the architecture’s stated goal, so I expected the Spectre x360 14 to achieve more longevity. The Spectre x360 14 has a 68-watt-hour battery, which is about average for 14-inch laptops, and it has a power-hungry 2.8K OLED display. So, there are factors to consider beyond the CPU by itself.

Considering everything, I’m at a loss to say whether the Core Ultra 7 155H is a particularly efficient processor. The Spectre hit eight hours in our web-browsing test and 18 hours in our video-looping test. The former is about average, while the latter is well above average. The previous-generation Spectre x360 13.5 with an OLED display and a lower-power 15-watt Intel Core i7-1255U hit 10 hours in the web-browsing test and 14 hours in the video-looping test. That machine wasn’t nearly as fast, however. And then we need to consider Apple’s MacBook Pro 14, which lasts closer to 18 hours in both tests with a very fast CPU and a mini-LED display.

We’ll have to wait to test more Meteor Lake laptops to draw meaningful conclusions. For now, suffice it to say that the Spectre x360 14 might last a full day of work, depending on how you’re using it. But I can’t say for sure.

There’s not much to say about the Spectre x360 14’s 2.8K OLED display that hasn’t been said about so many similar displays in the past. It looks incredible out of the box, with bright, dynamic colors and inky blacks. Watching high dynamic range (HDR) video is a treat, and it’s even better with content from Disney+ that supports the IMAX technology built into the Spectre. That provides unique aspect ratios and enhanced sound, and it works well.

My colorimeter agreed. The OLED panel is bright enough at 391 nits, well above our 300-nit threshold for working in bright indoor conditions. Blacks were perfectly black, with incredible contrast that’s beyond meaningful measurement. Colors were wide at 100% of sRGB, 97% of AdobeRGB, and 100% of DCI-P3, with excellent accuracy at a Delta-E of 0.68 (anything less than 1.0 is indistinguishable to the human eye).

In short, the display is sharp enough and offers superb image quality. It’s suitable for every kind of user, whether for productivity, creativity, or media consumption.

The Spectre x360 14 also features quad speakers with Poly audio tuning, including two upward-firing tweeters and two front-firing woofers. My standard for great audio has been Apple’s MacBook Pros, which use six speakers and force-cancelling subwoofers to produce loud, dynamic, and deep audio that no other laptop can match.

I can happily say that the Spectre comes surprisingly close, with plenty of distortion-free volume, crystal clear mids and highs, and more bass than any other 14-inch Windows laptop I’ve tested. It may not be quite as good as the MacBook Pro, but the Spectre pumps out excellent sound that will stop you from reaching for a pair of headphones.

There may be questions regarding the Meteor Lake chipset’s performance and efficiency, but that’s not to say that the Spectre x360 14 is a poor performer. It’s plenty fast for all but demanding creators and offers good to great battery life. Its display and audio are excellent, and the new design is attractive and functional.

There’s a lot to like about the Spectre x360 14, so I’m giving it a near-perfect rating as the best convertible 2-in-1 I’ve used. Perhaps HP will better tune the Meteor Lake chipset for improved performance and efficiency. And I question the real value of all the AI discussed in the marketing materials. But as it is, I can give the Spectre my strongest recommendation.

Mark Coppock

The rollout of Intel's highly anticipated discrete GPUs has been slow and confusing. But today, they just scored a big win with the announcement that HP's most premium laptop, the Spectre x360 16, will be sold with Intel's Arc instead of Nvidia's RTX graphics.

The new Spectre x360 16 comes with an option for an Arc A370M on board, in addition to an option for Iris Xe graphics for the $1,650 base configuration. The Arc A370M comes with 4GB of GDDR6 dedicated memory. That is on top of the 16GB or 32GB of onboard device RAM, as well as the up to 2TB NVMe solid-state drive on the device.

The 2-in-1 laptop is a flexible format that can work as a standard clamshell machine while offering optional (or primary) tablet functionality. Although not typically targeted at gaming, there are some 2-in-1s that do a good job of it, so if you want to game in your off hours, or want a portable laptop and tablet that can also play games, then buying the best 2-in-1 for gaming will set you up nicely.

There are a few types of 2-in-1s to pick from, including the detachable tablet, the 360-degree convertible, and the pull-forward design, but regardless of the type, the result is a laptop that doesn't constrain. Here are some 2-in-1 laptops that are great for gaming, as well as everything else.

It’s not often we see collectors' laptops like the Asus Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition. Announced at CES 2022, it’s an updated version of the already-released Zenbook 14X OLED, fit with new 12th-gen Intel processors and a more robust build -- but hardware isn’t what makes the Space Edition special.

The machine is inspired by Asus’s own P6300, which launched into space in 1997 and managed to stay outside the atmosphere for 600 days without any defects. It’s an homage, a celebration, and a retrospective on how far laptops have come.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Laptop Review

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Picture

The HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) is a premium Windows ultraportable laptop. It replaces the HP Spectre x360 14 from 2022 (Intel 12th Gen). This 2023 model is identical in design to its predecessor, as it's mainly an internal spec bump up to Intel 13th Gen CPUs. RAM and storage max out at 32GB and 2TB, respectively. It has Wi-Fi 6E wireless connectivity, a 1080p webcam, and a 66Wh battery. For the display, you can get an FHD+ (1920 x 1280) IPS or a 3k (3000 x 2000) OLED panel. There's an additional FHD+ IPS panel with an advertised brightness of  1000 cd/m² and an integrated privacy screen to protect your information from prying eyes. Ports include one USB-A, two USB-C/Thunderbolt 4, a MicroSD card reader, and a headphone jack.

You can see our unit's specifications and the available configuration options in the Differences Between Variants section.

Our Verdict

The HP Spectre x360 is great for school use. Its compact and lightweight design makes it easy to carry around, and its battery lasts over thirteen hours of light use. You can get it with an FHD+ IPS or 3k OLED display; both look sharp and get bright enough for use in most indoor settings. If you like handwritten notes, this laptop has stylus support and comes with a pen in the box. The keyboard feels great to type on, and the touchpad is large and responsive. Its Intel 13th Gen U-series CPU and integrated graphics can handle general productivity tasks like web browsing and text processing; however, they aren't ideal for demanding workloads like CAD or programming.

  • Thin and light.
  • All-day battery life.
  • Sharp, bright FHD+ displays.
  • Comfortable keyboard, large touchpad.
  • Great 1080p webcam.
  • CPU and GPU can't handle demanding workloads.

The HP Spectre x360 is mediocre for gaming. It's only available with low-power Intel 13th Gen U-series CPUs and integrated graphics, which aren't powerful enough to provide smooth gameplay in demanding games. You can play some older or lighter titles, but you'll have to play with low settings to get playable frame rates. Also, there are only 60Hz display options with no VRR to reduce screen tearing. On the upside, it doesn't get overly hot or loud under load.

  • Fast, user-replaceable SSD.
  • Doesn't get hot or loud under load.
  • Only 60Hz display options with no VRR.
  • Soldered RAM.

The HP Spectre x360 is great for media consumption. It's very portable due to its compact and lightweight design, and its battery lasts over ten hours of video playback. Since this is a 2-in-1, you can set the laptop up in tent mode or use it as a tablet. It's available with an FHD+ IPS or 3k OLED display; both look very sharp and get bright enough for indoor use. There's also an FHD+ display option with an advertised 1000 cd/m² brightness for outdoor use. The FHD+ panels aren't ideal for dark room viewing, as their low contrast makes blacks look gray, so it's best to get the OLED panel if you often view content in a dim setting. The speakers are bottom-firing; however, they get very loud with minimal compression and sound clear, with a decent amount of bass.

  • Available with 3k OLED display.
  • Speakers sound clear, with a decent amount of bass.
  • IPS panels aren't ideal for dark room viewing.

Depending on your workload, the HP Spectre x360 can be a good option for use as a workstation. It provides a great user experience with a nice sharp screen, a comfortable keyboard, and low fan noise. It also has a good port selection with two Thunderbolt 4s for your peripherals and external displays. Unfortunately, performance is the problem, as its low-power Intel 13th Gen U-series CPU and integrated graphics can't handle demanding workloads. You can do some color-critical work, though, as the 3k OLED display has full DCI P3 and Adobe RGB coverage.

  • OLED panel has full DCI P3 and Adobe RGB coverage.

The HP Spectre x360 is good for business use. It has a compact and lightweight design, and its battery lasts over thirteen hours of light use. Its 14-inch display provides just enough space for split-screen multitasking and gets bright enough to combat glare. The keyboard feels comfortable to type on, and the touchpad is responsive to all movements and gestures. Performance-wise, its Intel 13th Gen CPU can easily handle productivity tasks like text processing, web browsing, spreadsheets, and presentations. It has a great 1080p webcam for video calls and a wide port selection, including two Thunderbolt 4s. Unfortunately, the RAM isn't user-replaceable, so you'll have to get enough for your needs upfront.

Compared To Other Laptops

The HP Spectre x360 14 is a good general productivity laptop. It provides an excellent user experience with its sharp screen, comfortable keyboard, and large touchpad, and its battery life is among the best for Windows laptops. However, its CPU performance isn't as good as many other laptops with a similar configuration, as its tuning prioritizes a better user experience over raw performance.

For more options, check out our recommendations for the best lightweight laptops , the best travel laptops , and the best business laptops .

The HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) and the HP ENVY x360 15 (2023) are both great ultraportable laptops and very similar overall. The Spectre is more portable since it's a smaller device, and its battery lasts much longer. Although its display isn't as large as the Envy's, it looks sharper due to its higher pixel density. There's also a 3k and a 1000 cd/m² FHD+ display option with an integrated privacy screen, which you can't get on the ENVY. On the other hand, the ENVY has a better 1440p webcam and is available with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 discrete GPU.

The HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) and the Lenovo Yoga 7i 16 (2023) are both great 2-in-1 convertible laptops. The HP is more portable since it's a smaller device, and its battery lasts slightly longer. The HP's screen is smaller, but you can configure it with a 3k OLED display that provides a significantly better viewing experience, making it a better option for media consumption. On the other hand, the Lenovo has a wider port selection and is available with faster P-series CPUs.

The HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) and the Dell XPS 13 Plus (2022) are both premium laptops that provide a great user experience. The HP is a 2-in-1 convertible with stylus support, while the Dell is a more traditional clamshell model. The Dell feels much sturdier build-wise; however, it doesn't have as many ports as the HP, and its battery life is significantly shorter.

The HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) and the ASUS Zenbook 14 Flip OLED (2023) are very similar 2-in-1 convertible laptops. The HP has longer battery life and better speakers; however, the ASUS has an HDMI port and is available with faster P-series CPUs. If permanent burn-in worries you, the HP is available with IPS panels but not the ASUS.

Test Results

perceptual testing image

The HP Spectre x360 14 has a sleek, premium design that fits easily into most professional work environments. It has a silver-color aluminum chassis with diamond-cut corners at the back, thin bezels, silver-color keycaps, a glass touchpad, and a chrome HP logo on the lid. On the bottom, you'll find a pair of speakers near the front and air vents near the back. There are also air vents on the back of the laptop. It's available in three colors: Natural Silver, Nocturne Blue, and Nightfall Black.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Build Quality Photo

The HP Spectre feels well-built. Its all-aluminum chassis feels sturdy, with no obvious gaps in the construction. However, there's some flex on the lid, display, and keyboard deck, more than expected for a premium all-metal laptop. The finish doesn't scratch easily. Fingerprints and smudges aren't a problem on the silver model, though it's likely worse on the darker color models. The feet feel strong and stick firmly to the bottom.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Hinge Photo

The HP Spectre has good hinges. They feel smooth when opening and closing the lid and are very stable, exhibiting almost no wobble when touching the screen or typing aggressively. There's too much resistance to open the laptop with one hand; however, that's somewhat normal for a 2-in-1, as the hinges need to be stiff enough to prevent the laptop from collapsing in tent mode and to keep the screen still in tablet mode.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Dimensions Photo

The HP Spectre 2-in-1 and its power adapter are compact and lightweight.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Internals Photo

The HP Spectre x360's serviceability is mediocre. Accessing the internals is relatively easy; you only need to remove four torque screws and undo the clips holding the bottom panel with a prying tool. The screws are of two different sizes, so keep them organized. Unfortunately, the RAM isn't user-replaceable. The storage slot supports M.2 2280 PCIe Gen 4 SSDs.

You can see the maintenance and service guide here .

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Display Photo

The HP Spectre x360 is available with the following displays:

  • IPS 1920 x 1280 60Hz Touchscreen (400 cd/m²)
  • IPS 1920 x 1280 60Hz Touchscreen (1000 cd/m² with integrated privacy screen)
  • OLED 3000 x 2000 60Hz Touchscreen (400 cd/m²)

Although HP markets this laptop as a 14-inch model, the screen is actually 13.5 inches. Both the FHD+ (1920 x 1280) and 3k (3000 x 2000) panels look very sharp. The latter is technically sharper, with a pixel density of 267 PPI; however, the difference isn't immediately noticeable on such a small display at typical viewing distances. Also, the 3k display will consume more power. Like all OLEDs, the 3k display is susceptible to permanent burn-in with static elements like Windows' taskbar, though it's unlikely to be an issue for those viewing varied content.

The 3:2 aspect ratio is great for productivity, as the increased vertical space lets you see more information at once, reducing the need to scroll. It's also well suited for tablet use, as it makes the screen feel less narrow in portrait orientation.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Motion Blur

The HP Spectre x360 is only available with 60Hz displays, which is typical for a productivity laptop. The FHD+ IPS panel has a slow response time, causing visible ghosting in fast-moving scenes. The 1000 cd/m² FHD+ panel will perform similarly. The 3k OLED panel likely has a faster response time, as most OLEDs do.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Contrast Photo

The FHD+ panel has a good contrast ratio. It's at the higher end for an IPS panel but relatively low compared to other display technologies. Blacks still look gray in dim settings at this contrast level. For the best dark room viewing experience, go with the 3k OLED panel. It has effectively an infinite contrast ratio as, like all OLEDs, it can turn off individual pixels to produce perfect blacks.

The FHD+ display gets bright enough for use in most indoor environments but not quite outdoors in broad daylight. It's very dim at the lowest brightness setting, which is great for dark room viewing, as it's easier on the eyes. The other FHD+ display has an advertised brightness of 1000 cd/m², so it's a much better option for outdoor use. The 3k OLED panel has an advertised brightness of 400 cd/m².

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Reflections Photo Off

The display handles reflections well. Its glossy finish mostly struggles with direct, mirror-like reflections, so it's best to avoid having bright light sources directly behind you, like a lamp or open window during the day. These reflections are visible even with the screen at maximum brightness.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Black Uniformity Photo

The FHD+ display's black uniformity is decent. There's a little bit of clouding here and there, which is only visible when viewing dark color content in a dim setting. The 1000 cd/m² FHD+ display will likely have similar uniformity. The OLED display has perfect uniformity since OLEDs can turn off individual pixels to produce perfect blacks.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Horizontal Chroma Picture

The FHD+ display's horizontal viewing angle is okay. The image dims and washes out relatively quickly as you move to the side, so you need to be more or less directly in front of the screen to get the best accuracy. The 1000 cd/m² FHD+ display has a much narrower viewing angle due to its integrated privacy screen. This privacy-protection filter makes the displayed content harder to see from the side, similar to the one on the HP ENVY x360 13 (2020) . The 3.5k OLED panel will likely perform better regarding color washout and brightness loss, but it'll struggle more with color shifting.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Vertical Chroma Picture

The FHD+ display's vertical viewing angle is okay. Like the horizontal viewing angle, the image dims and washes when viewing from above and below, so you need to look at the screen more or less straight on to see an accurate image, which can be challenging in tight places where you don't have much room to tilt the screen, like on a bus or airplane. Again, the vertical viewing angle on the 1000 cd/m² FHD+ display will be much worse due to the privacy screen, and the OLED panel will likely perform better regarding color washout and brightness loss but struggle more with color shifting.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) White Balance Screencap

The FHD+ display's out-of-the-box accuracy is decent. Most color inaccuracies are minor and hard to spot. The white balance is a bit off at higher brightness levels where there's too much red. The color temperature is slightly warmer than the 6500K target, which is not enough to make much difference visually. The gamma follows the sRGB curve loosely; dark scenes are too dark, and some bright scenes are too bright.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Gamut SDR

The FHD+'s color gamut is excellent. It has full sRGB coverage, meaning it can produce all the colors in this commonly used color space. It has great DCI P3 and Adobe RGB coverage but not enough for HDR video production or print photography. The 1000-nit IPS panel has the same color gamut, while the 3k OLED panel has full DCI P3 and Adobe RGB coverage.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Flicker Graph

The FHD+ IPS panels are entirely flicker-free, which helps reduce eye strain. The 3k OLED panel likely flickers, as most OLEDs do.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Keyboard Photo

The HP Spectre has a great keyboard. The layout is fairly standard, so it's easy to get used to. Key spacing is good, but the whole keyboard could have been bigger, considering the amount of space available on the deck. The keys are stable; they wobble a bit, but not enough to affect the typing experience. They have a good amount of travel, don't require much force to actuate, and provide relatively satisfying tactile and audio feedback. You can adjust the backlight using the F4 hotkey. The backlight is white, leaning on the cooler side. Like most keyboards with light-color keycaps, the white backlighting can make the legends harder to see in well-lit settings. If this is an issue, go with the Nocturne Blue or Nightfall Black color.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Touchpad Photo

The HP Spectre has a great touchpad. Size-wise, it's large but could be a tad bigger. It tracks all movements and gestures well, and there's no problem with palm rejection. It doesn't always register touches around the edges, which isn't necessarily bad, as it's where most people are more likely to accidentally touch when typing. The buttons feel satisfyingly tactile, but you can only click in the bottom half of the touchpad.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Frequency Response Plot

The speakers get very loud with minimal compression artifacts at max volume. They sound clear and natural, with good instrument separation and a decent amount of bass. They don't sound as full as the Apple MacBook Pro 14 (M2, 2023) but are easily among the better speakers in the Windows world.

The webcam's video quality is great. The image looks detailed and well-exposed. The colors are true to life, but the tint is slightly unnatural. Voices sound loud and clear, albeit a tad hollow. The microphone's noise canceling feature works well in removing background noise, but it's pretty aggressive and causes a 'fade in' effect when you start speaking, so the first few words might be hard to understand for the person at the other end. You can turn off this feature at the cost of more background noise during calls. There isn't a physical privacy cover; however, you can disable the camera using the key next to the power button.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Ports Photo

The HP Spectre x360 has a good port selection. The USB-A port supports USB 3.2 Gen 2 data transfer speed (up to 10Gbps) and Sleep and Charge. The latter lets you charge a mobile device even when the laptop is in sleep mode. Both USB-Cs support Thunderbolt 4 (up to 40Gbps data transfer speed and two 4k displays at 60Hz), USB4, USB 3.2 Gen 2, DisplayPort 1.4, Power Delivery 3.0, and Sleep and Charge. Power Delivery lets you fast charge the laptop and other PD-compatible devices connected to the port.

The wireless adapter is an Intel Wi-Fi 6E AX211. Wi-Fi 6E has faster speeds, lower latency, and less signal interference than previous Wi-Fi standards. However, you need a router that supports Wi-Fi 6E to benefit from these features.

The HP Spectre x360 is available with the following CPUs:

  • Intel Core i5-1335U (10 cores/12 threads, up to 4.6GHz, 12MB cache)
  • Intel Core i7-1355U (10 cores/12 threads, up to 5.0GHz, 12MB cache)

Both CPUs are low-power processors typically found in thin and light productivity laptops. They both have a hybrid architecture with two performance and eight efficiency cores; the only difference is that the i7-1355U has faster clock speeds, giving you slightly better performance. These CPUs can only handle light, general productivity tasks like web browsing, text processing, video playback, spreadsheets, and presentations. If you have a more intensive workload like programming or video editing, it's best to get a laptop with a more powerful H-series CPU. You can find these high-performance CPUs in relatively thin and light laptops like the Dell XPS 15 (2023) .

The HP Spectre is only available with Intel Iris Xe. This integrated GPU can only handle light tasks like web browsing and video playback, not demanding workloads like video editing or 3D graphics. You can play some older or puzzle-like games, but you'll likely have to play at a lower resolution or with low graphical settings to get smooth gameplay.

You can configure this laptop with 8GB, 16GB, or 32GB of RAM. The memory isn't user-replaceable.

You can get this laptop with 512GB, 1TB, or 2TB of storage. The SSD is user-replaceable; the slot supports M.2 2280 PCIe Gen 4 SSDs.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Geekbench Image

The HP Spectre x360 has an overall great score in the Geekbench 5 benchmarks. The Core i5-1335U's multi-thread performance is good but worse than expected for this particular CPU, as the tuning really limits the performance to keep the laptop cool and quiet. The overall performance is still good enough for general productivity tasks, but don't expect to do anything intensive like programming or video editing. You can get slightly better performance by switching to the Performance mode in the HP Command Center app, though at the cost of louder fans. The Core i7 will only perform slightly better. As for the GPU-intensive workloads, the Intel CPU's integrated graphics perform poorly and aren't suitable for heavy computing tasks.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Cinebench R23 Photo

The Intel Core i5-1335U has strong single-thread performance, but its multi-thread performance is on the slower side. For heavy, sustained multi-threaded workloads, it's best to get a laptop with an H-series CPU, like the Lenovo Slim Pro 7 14 (2023) or the Dell XPS 15 (2023) .

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Blender Image

The performance in Blender is mediocre. Neither the CPU nor the integrated GPU is suitable for 3D rendering. A laptop with a discrete GPU is best if you need to work in Blender. Even an entry-level model like an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Laptop GPU can render 3D images much faster. If you want even better performance, you can get a laptop with an NVIDIA RTX GPU, as the RTX models support Optix hardware acceleration, significantly boosting performance.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Basemark Image

The HP Spectre performs poorly in the Basemark GPU benchmark. Its Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics can only handle simple, puzzle-like games or older titles at 1080p, and even then, you'll have to play at a lower resolution or with low graphics settings to get playable frame rates.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Storage Performance Image

The 1TB SSD's performance is outstanding. The sequential write speed is a bit slow for a PCIe Gen 4 SSD but acceptable for a thin and light laptop designed for general productivity. The 2TB SSD is likely faster, as larger SSDs tend to perform better, while the 512GB is likely slower.

The HP Spectre x360's battery life is outstanding. You can easily get through a whole day of light use on a full charge. Models with the 3k OLED panel will have shorter battery life, likely around eight to nine hours of light use.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Borderlands 3 Graph

Borderlands 3 isn't playable. The gameplay is extremely choppy, even with low graphical settings. The CPU and integrated GPU can't handle such a demanding game. You can expect the same performance in other similar titles.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Civilization VI Graph

Since Civilization VI is a strategy game that doesn't require fast reaction time or precise aiming, it's perfectly playable at 30 fps, which you can get by lowering a couple of graphical settings. The turn time is long, though. Upgrading to the Core i7 won't improve the turn time significantly.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) CS:GO graph

CS:GO runs poorly on the HP Spectre at 1080p with high settings. Although the average frame rate is good, the game stutters a lot due to frame drops. It runs more smoothly with low settings, but there are still noticeable stutters.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) SOTTR Graph

Shadow of the Tomb Raider isn't playable on the HP Spectre x360 2-in-1 at 1080p, as it's too demanding on a low-power U-series CPU and integrated graphics. The gameplay is choppy, even with low graphical settings. You can expect the same performance in other similarly demanding titles.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Keyboard Temps Picture

The keyboard is cool when idle and only gets mildly warm under load. Likewise, the fans are completely silent when performing lighter tasks and barely audible under more intense use. These are results obtained in the Smart Sense mode, which automatically adjusts the fan speed and temperature target. This feature also takes into consideration the battery status and ambient temperature. Other profiles are available in the HP Command Center app, like Balanced , Cool , Quiet , Power Saver , and Performance . The app includes a slider that lets you manually adjust the target surface temperature.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2023) Performance Over Time Graph

The HP Spectre's performance over time is outstanding. Neither the CPU nor the GPU gets particularly hot under load. The CPU starts throttling only a few minutes in, slowing down significantly in the first 15 minutes; however, its performance goes back up once the fans kick in and bring the temperature down.

The HP Spectre x360 has a fingerprint sensor and a facial recognition IR camera. The fingerprint sensor is next to the right Alt key. You can use either to log in quickly, authorize purchases in the Windows Store, and auto-fill saved passwords on supported websites.

This laptop supports pen input and comes with an MPP (Microsoft Pen Protocol) 2.0 stylus. It supports tilt and 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity, and it charges via USB-C. There's a slot on the laptop sleeve to store the pen for transport. The pen can attach magnetically to the side of the screen, but it isn't very secure, as the magnet is fairly weak.

The Spectre x360 is HP's flagship consumer convertible laptop and a multiple Editors' Choice award winner. (HP is also PCMag's 2023 Readers' Choice award winner for 2-in-1 laptops.) For 2024, it gets Intel's new don't-say-14th-Gen Core Ultra processor architecture and switches back from a 13.5-inch, 3:2 aspect ratio display to a 14-inch, 16:10 ratio panel, but it hasn't really changed much—it remains a sleek and light 2-in-1 that stands out for build quality, versatility, and productivity. The latest Spectre isn't cheap: It starts at $1,499.99 and costs $1,969.99 as tested, with 32GB of memory and 2TB of storage. Regardless, the latest HP Spectre x360 14 easily earns another Editors' Choice nod as a premium convertible status symbol.

Design and Configurations: Cutting Corners in an Attractive Way 

As before, HP sells the Spectre x360 2-in-1 in 14- and 16-inch screen sizes, the latter a potent desktop replacement that's too hefty to be more than occasionally useful in tablet mode. The 14-inch model satisfies sketchers and note-takers with a rechargeable stylus that sticks magnetically to the laptop's side. (You'll find no garage or niche to store the pen internally.)

hp spectre x360 14 specifications

While base models get by with an Intel Core Ultra 5 125H chip, our loaded review unit flaunts a Core Ultra 7 155H (six Performance cores, eight standard, and two low-power Efficient cores; 22 threads), with a clock speed varying from 1.4GHz to 4.8GHz and Intel Arc integrated graphics. It's teamed with 32GB of memory, a 2TB NVMe solid-state drive, Windows 11 Pro, and a 2,880-by-1,800-pixel OLED touch screen with dynamic 60Hz or 120Hz refresh rate. An HP.com Core Ultra 7 config with a less extravagant 16GB of memory and 1TB SSD is $1,649.99. 

Available in Slate Blue or Sahara Silver as well as our system's Nightfall Black, the Spectre measures 0.67 by 12.4 by 8.7 inches. HP brags that its aluminum lid and keyboard deck are 90% recycled, and its plastic keycaps and the scissor mechanisms beneath are 50% recycled. Thin bezels (HP quotes an 89% screen-to-body ratio) surround the display. You'll feel virtually no flex if you grasp the screen corners or press the keyboard deck. The F2 key serves as a webcam privacy shutter.

The HP is slightly too heavy for ultraportable status at 3.19 pounds, but actually a tad trimmer than the company's non-convertible HP Pavilion Plus 14 (0.74 by 12.4 by 8.9 inches). Its archrival, the Lenovo Yoga 9i Gen 8 , is barely larger (0.6 by 12.5 by 9.1 inches) and a tad lighter (3.09 pounds). 

More monochromatic than its brass-accented predecessors, the 2024 Spectre x360 keeps the signature sleek styling with diagonal-cut rear corners that hold ports (an audio jack at left and a Thunderbolt 4/USB4 port at right). A second USB4 port is nearby on the right side, with a drop-jaw USB Type-A port on the left.

hp spectre x360 14 specifications

You'll find no onboard HDMI port for an external monitor, but the Spectre comes with two USB-C mini docks or dongles, one with just an HDMI port and another with HDMI, two USB-A, and one USB-C. The AC adapter has a USB-C connector. Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth handle wireless connectivity.

Using the HP Spectre x360 14: Always Look Your Best 

Videoconferencers will find the Spectre's webcam is exceptional, with 9-megapixel resolution (videos up to 4K or 2160p) and images that are remarkably bright and colorful with no noise or static. The myHP software lets you blur or replace the background. This tool can also make backlight and low-light adjustments as well as handle tone and appearance enhancement—in addition to the ability to tag-team a second USB webcam if you move around a lot. It can also capture PDFs and perform keystone correction to help you read tilted whiteboards. HP Enhanced Lighting puts a white border around the screen to mimic a ring light.

The webcam supports Windows Hello face recognition, joining the fingerprint reader built into the power button to give you two ways to skip typing passwords. An HP Command Center utility not only provides familiar smart features such as locking the system if you walk away and waking it on return, but lets you pause and resume video play with a wave of your hand and can warn you if you're logging too much screen time or put your eyes too close to the display.

hp spectre x360 14 specifications

Speaking of the display, it's like some other recent HP laptops in being IMAX Enhanced, which is less impressive than it sounds: You'll see a few more pixels at the top and bottom of Marvel movies on Disney+, for example. Regardless, this is a crisp, bright, and beautiful screen, with sky-high contrast and rich, vivid colors. Fine details are razor-sharp, and viewing angles are wide. Photos and videos look amazing, and text pops on white backgrounds. myHP lets you toggle among HDR and manual sRGB, Adobe RGB, DCI-P3, and native screen modes. 

The 5.5-inch pen's sliding top reveals its USB-C charging port. The stylus has 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and two buttons, which the myHP utility lets you reprogram from the eraser function and right-click to other functions, such as taking screenshots, basic media controls, or opening new browser tabs. The pen keeps up with my fastest swoops and scribbles with effective palm rejection.

hp spectre x360 14 specifications

Sound from the two top-firing tweeters and two front-firing woofers isn't deafening but loud enough to fill a modest room. Tuned by the conferencing-oriented Poly Studio (a.k.a. Plantronics) instead of HP's audiophile contractor Bang & Olufsen, sound is nevertheless clean and crisp; you'll hear minimal bass but you can make out overlapping tracks. The myHP software provides music, movie, and voice presets and an equalizer, and the Start menu adds DTS:X and DTS Headphone:X enhancements. 

The backlit keyboard commits the common sin of pairing the Fn key with the cursor arrows instead of providing real Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys; it also commits HP's eternal sin of stacking hard-to-hit, half-height up and down arrow keys between full-size left and right ones in a clumsy row instead of the proper inverted T. The keyboard's typing feel is shallow but comfortably snappy and responsive.

hp spectre x360 14 specifications

HP's buttonless touchpad has a short, stiff click but taps and glides smoothly. It's large enough to take advantage of a myHP option that turns its left and right edges into vertical haptic sliders for screen brightness and audio volume, respectively.

Testing the HP Spectre x360 14: Intel Core Ultra 7 FTW 

As a premium 2-in-1, the Lenovo Yoga 9i is the most obvious comparison for our benchmark charts. Dell contributes 14-inch convertibles from opposite ends of the price spectrum, the under-$800 Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1 and $3,000 corporate-centric Dell Latitude 9440 2-in-1 . The last spot goes to the MSI Stealth 14 Studio , a clamshell in the HP's price bracket with a game-worthy Nvidia GeForce GPU instead of integrated graphics.

Productivity Tests 

We run the same general productivity benchmarks across both mobile and desktop systems. Our first test is UL's PCMark 10, which simulates a variety of real-world productivity and office workflows to measure overall system performance and also includes a storage subtest for the primary drive.

Three other benchmarks focus on the CPU, using all available cores and threads, to rate a PC's suitability for processor-intensive workloads. Maxon's Cinebench R23 uses that company's Cinema 4D engine to render a complex scene, while Geekbench 5.4 Pro from Primate Labs simulates popular apps ranging from PDF rendering and speech recognition to machine learning. Finally, we use the open-source video transcoder HandBrake 1.4 to convert a 12-minute video clip from 4K to 1080p resolution (lower times are better). 

Finally, we run PugetBench for Photoshop by workstation maker Puget Systems, which uses the Creative Cloud version 22 of Adobe's famous image editor to rate a PC's performance for content creation and multimedia applications. It's an automated extension that executes a variety of general and GPU-accelerated Photoshop tasks ranging from opening, rotating, resizing, and saving an image to applying masks, gradient fills, and filters.

The MSI's 45-watt (W) processor topped the HP's 28W chip in our CPU tests, but the Spectre's performance impressed regardless, with the new Intel Core Ultra 7 mostly landing between the chipmaker's previous-generation Core i7 and Core i9. It's no CGI-rendering or dataset-crunching workstation, but it's more than muscular enough for productivity and creativity tasks. 

Graphics Tests 

We test Windows PC graphics with two DirectX 12 gaming simulations from UL's 3DMark, Night Raid (more modest, suitable for laptops with integrated graphics) and Time Spy (more demanding, suitable for gaming rigs with discrete GPUs). 

Additionally, we run two tests from the cross-platform GPU benchmark GFXBench 5, which stresses both low-level routines like texturing and high-level, game-like image rendering. The 1440p Aztec Ruins and 1080p Car Chase tests, rendered offscreen to accommodate different display resolutions, exercise graphics and compute shaders using the OpenGL programming interface and hardware tessellation respectively. The more frames per second (fps), the better.

The Stealth's GeForce discrete GPU blew away the other laptops' integrated graphics. In other news, water is wet. Casual gamers and perhaps content creators will be happy to see the new Intel Arc Graphics are a noticeable step up from the last generation, however. 

Battery and Display Tests 

We test laptop battery life by playing a locally stored 720p video file (the open-source Blender movie Tears of Steel ) with display brightness at 50% and audio volume at 100%. We make sure the battery is fully charged before the test, with Wi-Fi and keyboard backlighting turned off. 

Additionally, we also use a Datacolor SpyderX Elite monitor calibration sensor and its Windows software to measure a laptop screen's color saturation—what percentage of the sRGB, Adobe RGB, and DCI-P3 color gamuts or palettes the display can show—and its 50% and peak brightness in nits (candelas per square meter).

The high-powered MSI's sins caught up with it, presenting wretched battery life in our video rundown, while the Spectre x360 led the way with swell unplugged stamina. The HP's display also dazzles with color matched only by the OLED Lenovo, though the Stealth's top-quality IPS panel comes close, and it emits ample brightness (OLED technology is generally worth about 100 IPS nits).

hp spectre x360 14 specifications

Verdict: One of 2024's Top-Tier 2-in-1s

We wish it cost a couple of hundred bucks less, but the 2024 HP Spectre x360 14 easily repeats as an Editors' Choice award recipient. We'd like to see a few minor complaints addressed next time, like a media card slot and somewhere to store the stylus, but these aren't deal-breakers here, especially thanks to the included accessories. All told, this may be the best consumer convertible you can buy so far this year—we'll hold off on making that call until we see more Intel Core Ultra-generation 2-in-1 laptops—but either way it's an excellent choice for grab-and-go productivity and versatility.

HP Spectre x360 14 and 16 get bump to Meteor Lake and a high-resolution 9MP webcam

Some configurations will get Wi-Fi 7.

HP Spectre x360

HP is using CES 2024 as an occasion to announce updates to its flagship HP Spectre x360 14 and 16 2-in-1s, some of the best ultrabooks now with Intel's Core Ultra processors. The new systems also come with high-resolution webcams, OLED screens and options for Wi-Fi 7. The two laptops share many common features, including going up to 32GB of soldered RAM and up to 2TB of storage in the form of a PCIe Gen 4 SSD. While the screen sizes are different, both feature 2880 x 1800 OLED display options at 120 Hz (adjustable down to 48 Hz based on what you're watching) with IMAX Enhanced Certification.

Neither has seen a major change to the design, which still has diagonal cut corners on the back to allow for ports on the corner. The Spectre x360 14 will come in black, blue, and silver, while the 16-inch version will only come in black and blue.

The 14-inch x360 will start at an Intel Core Ultra 5 125H and top out at a Core Ultra 7 155H, while the 16-inch laptop will start with the 155H. Both will use Intel's integrated Arc graphics, though the 16-incher has an option for an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop GPU for some more power. The new Core Ultra chips are Intel's first processors to feature NPUs on board, which should assist in some AI tasks. The Spectres are switching from U and P series processors to the H series with Meteor Lake. In some ways, this is a bump in performance, but Intel is wrapping the P series into the H series name, you're still getting a 28W part. One of the specs that stands out in the spec sheet is a 9 megapixel camera, which is higher resolution than most. I'm really looking forward to seeing how good this looks in testing. HP claims this camera will feature hardware-assisted low light adjustment.

The camera is also the center of a series of features that HP is pushing as using AI, though it's unclear how many of them will utilize the NPU out of the box. These include walk-away lock for better privacy in public spaces and having the screen dim when you look away. The other, non-camera option is HP SmartSense, which detects what you're using the computer for and adjusts the thermal profile.

I'm a bit surprised to see that Bang & Olufsen's name has been removed from the laptops. HP's partnership with B&O has led to some excellent speakers, even in thin notebooks (the x360 16 is .78 inches thick, for instance). In the spec sheet, HP lists Poly Studio quad speakers (HP owns Poly) with DTS:X Ultra support. 

While the Wi-Fi 7 networking support may be attractive to enthusiasts looking to upgrade their routers for the new standard, Wi-Fi 6E will also be included in some configurations, so Wi-Fi 7 is likely to bump the cost.

Both laptops are set to launch today, with the HP Spectre x360 14 starting at $1,499.99 and the Spectre x360 16 beginning at $1,599.99.

HP is set to launch more Intel Core Ultra-based devices across its productivity lineup in the first quarter of the year, including 14- and 16-inch HP Pavilion Plus notebooks, 14 and 15.6-inch HP laptops (yes, they're just called HP and the screen size), and a series of upcoming all-in-ones .

HP Spectre x360 14 hands-on at CES 2024: An AI laptop I'd actually buy

The HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 has all the makings of being one of the best laptops for those looking for equal parts AI power and portability. Plus, it's pure eye candy, and I don't just mean the design — there's a 9MP camera on board that delivers great-looking images while keeping you in the frame while you move around.

As you'd expect, the HP Spectre X360 14 2-in-1 also packs Intel's latest Core Ultra chip, whose NPU is primed to deliver a range of useful AI experiences. You also get a vivid OLED display and Poly-tuned audio in a lightweight design. I went hands-on with the Spectre X360 14 2-in-1 ahead of CES 2024 , and it looks like a very impressive MacBook Pro 14-inch M3 alternative for the money.

HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 Specs

Hp spectre x360 14 2-in-1: price and release date.

The HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 is available now at HP.com and Best Buy for a starting price of $1,499. We will report back on configuration options. By comparison, the MacBook Pro 14-inch with M3 chip starts at $1,599.

HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1: Design and ports

For a 2-in-1 whose display flips around, the HP Spectre x360 is pretty compact and light. It measures 12.35 x 8.68 x 0.67 inches and weighs 3.2 pounds, which makes it easy to take from room to room or slip in your back for your commute.

Given its slim dimensions, there's not much room for ports, but you get 2 Thunderbolt 4 ports along with a flip-down, USB-A port. I wonder if that door will last but it's nice to have the option to full in a full-size USB A cable. There's a mic/headphone jack as well.

The HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 comes in Nightball black, Slate blue and Sahara silver. I'm partial to the blue now that I've seen all the models in person. It has personality without being too showy.

HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1: Display and audio

The 14-inch OLED display on the the HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 delivers a vibrant picture, whether I was using GIMP to create generative AI photos or surfing the web. This panel has a variable refresh rate of 48-120Hz to deliver smooth performance while helping save on battery life.

I also like the 16:10 aspect ratio on the new Spectre, which fits in more content than a 16:9 screen. Just don't expect the best brightness. This HP is rated for 500 nits of brightness when viewing HDR content, compared to 1,600 nits for the 14-inch MacBook Pro.

The new Spectre X350 14 2-in-1 models are the first consumer laptops to feature Poly audio tuning. I didn't have a chance to test out the speakers — two on either side of the keyboard — but HP says that you should get great voice quality along with strong overall sound.

HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1: Webcam

One of my favorite features in the HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 is the 9MP camera, which puts the 1080p camera on the MacBook Pro to shame. I looked clear and my skin tone natural in a room with challenging lighting. And that's because this laptop features hardware-enabled low-light adjustments.

I also appreciated that the webcam could keep my face centered as I moved around the frame, one of several AI features that's handled by the NPU. You can also blur the background with ease.

HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1: Performance and AI Features

The HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 is powered by either a Intel Core Ultra 5 or Core Ultra 7 chip, which is backed up by 16GB or 32GB of RAM. Storage options include a 512GB NVMe SSD, 1TB or 2TB. There's Intel Arc graphics on board, too.

But the biggest deal is the beefed up NPU inside Intel's new chip, which can handle all sorts of AI tasks instead of the CPU or GPU. For example, I used GIMP to create an image of a golden retriever riding a skateboard with just a simple prompt.

There's also a dedicated AI chip that can lock your PC when you walk away and wake it up when you approach. And I got a kick out of the privacy alerts that pop up when the Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 senses that someone else is looking over your shoulder. No snoop for you!

HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1: Battery life

The HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 is rated for up to 13 hours of battery life in general use, and up to 17 hours of video playback. We saw over 17 hours of juice from the MacBook Pro 14-inch M3 when surfing the web, so HP could be at a disadvantage here.

The good news is that this HP supports fast charging, and you can get to 50% in about 45 minutes.

HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1: Outlook

Overall, the HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 is a very attractive and capable system that has the potential to make our best Windows 11 laptop list and our best 2-in-1 laptop guide.

I'm particularly impressed by the sharp 9MP webcam, several time-saving AI features and the colorful OLED display. And it's all wrapped up in a design that's lighter than the 14-inch MacBook Pro — and that's with a touch screen.

The only things that give me pause right now are the relatively short rated battery life and the brightness of the display, but we'll see how it fares once we get it into the lab.

The 2023 HP Spectre x360 13.5 continues to be a force to be reckoned with even today. It features a premium design and build, a sharp and vibrant 3K OLED display, above-average battery life, and a productivity-friendly 3:2 aspect ratio screen. Performance is pretty good, although it could have been better, and so is the battery life. Overall, one of the best 2-in-1's of 2023.

  • Stunning design
  • Great keyboard
  • 3:2 aspect ratio display
  • No 5G option

The HP Spectre x360 14 (2024) is the follow-up to last year's excellent Spectre x360 13.5 (2023) , which also happened to be one of the best 13-inch laptops . The new model boasts a tweaked design, a slightly larger display, and is powered by the latest Intel Core Ultra processors. The 2023 model excelled when it came to having a color-accurate display, premium user experience, and the fact that it could be used as a tablet too. The new 2024 model continues to impress in all those areas, and takes it up a notch, which makes it a strong candidate for being one of the best 14-inch laptops in 2024. With the option of both models on the market, should you pick the older one at a slightly discounted price, or is the premium on the new model worth it?

Price, specs & availability

The HP Spectre x360 14 (2024) starts at roughly $1,500, and is available to buy directly from HP's online store. It comes in Nightfall black, Slate blue, Sahara silver colors. While the blue variant looks nice, the silver is the new shade, which looks equally striking. The new Spectre x360 14 (2024) can be configured with either an Intel Core Ultra 5 or Core Ultra 7 processor. You can also spec it with up to 32GB of RAM, and up to a 2TB SSD. The webcam hardware has improved too, which, in our experience, delivers better image quality for video calls thanks to the 4K resolution support.

Meanwhile, the HP Spectre x360 13.5 (2023) now starts at roughly $900, which gets you an Intel Core i5-1335U processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. This model can also be customized with up to an Intel Core i7 13th Gen processor, up to 32GB of RAM, and up to a 2TB SSD. One thing worth noting is that the RAM on both generations of the Spectre are soldered onto the motherboard, which means it's not user upgradable. The Spectre x360 13.5 also comes in three colors – Natural silver, Nocturne blue, and Nightfall black.

The new HP Spectre x360 14 (2024) has more or less the same dimensions as the previous model, except for the slightly longer width. It has the exact same thickness of 0.67 inches, and is only a bit heavier at 3.19 pounds, compared to the 2023 model. We found the design to be great, and it is easily one of the most beautiful looking laptops out there. HP says it has used plenty of recycled metals and plastics in the new model, and just holding the metal chassis gives you an instant sense of the premium build. HP also continues to offer a best-in-class keyboard, as the keys feel comfortable and accurate to type on, and there's no perceptible wobble. There's even haptic feedback for the touchpad now. Connectivity is pretty solid too, thanks to two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a single USB-A port, and a headphone combo socket. Being a 2-in-1 laptop, you can flip the display 360 degrees backwards and convert it into a tablet.

The Spectre x360 13.5 (2023) is not far behind, and delivers a similar premium in-hand experience. Due to the slightly smaller display, it has a shorter width, but the rest of the dimensions are the same. It's moderately lighter at 3.01 pounds, but we doubt most would actually notice that difference. The all-metal design feels great to hold, and its ability to convert to a tablet gives you great usage flexibility. The 2023 model features two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a headphone combo socket, USB-A, and a mciroSD card reader. It has a 5MP webcam, which we found to be pretty good for its time.

With the Spectre x360 14 (2024), HP has switched to a 16:10 aspect ratio from 3:2, and we actually don't mind it. It's a gorgeous 14-inch OLED display with a 2.8K (2880x1800) resolution, dynamic 120Hz refresh rate, and a 0.2ms response time. It is also rated to have high color accuracy, brightness, and supports multiple HDR formats. In our testing, we found it to have 100% sRGB, 92% NTSC, 95% Adobe RGB, and 100% P3 coverage, which is what you'd want from an OLED. The black level was also quite impressive, and the touch response was spot on.

The 2023 Spectre x360 13.5 can be configured with up to a 3K OLED panel, which is impressive. The higher resolution and smaller display size also means you get a denser pixel count, meaning, less visible (to no) jagged edges around text and icons. It also has a 3:2 aspect ratio, similar to Microsoft's Surface laptops, which makes it more natural when using it vertically as a tablet. Unlike the newer model, this one has an option for an LCD panel too, if you're on a budget. The OLED panel is incredible though, and in our experience, it managed 100% sRGB, 96% NTSC, 98% Adobe RGB, and 100% P3 color coverage. The actual recorded brightness was 413.1 nits, which is expected, and the black level was 0.00 for all levels of brightness, thereby giving you an infinite contrast ratio.

Performance

Going purely by benchmark numbers, you can expect big improvements in the Spectre x360 14 (2023), compared to last year's model. Gaming is one area where you can expect improved performance too. While the 2023 model with the Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics was good, the new x360 14 features integrated Intel Arc graphics. You can expect to get very playable framerates in AAA titles like Forza Horizon 5 and Battlefield V. You might have to disable some advanced features like ray tracing (even though the GPU supports it), but you can rest assured that most modern games will at least run, and run well. Of course, the true potential of the Intel Core Ultra processor will be realized once developers update their apps to take advantage of the new AI NPU chip in the CPU. Right now, it's only being utilized for Windows Studio Effects, but that should change soon.

The HP Spectre x360 13.5 (2023) is no slouch either, just not as powerful as the 2024 model since it uses Intel's U-series CPUs, versus the P-series. Benchmark numbers are still decent for its class, and we never really felt any lack of power when using it day-to-day, or in any productivity tasks. You should also be able to play most casual games with ease, but don't expect smooth performance from today's AAA titles, unless you're willing to sacrifice resolution and eye-candy.

Battery life

The HP Spectre x360 14 (2024) has a 68Wh battery capacity, which is promised to deliver up to 13 hours of runtime with regular use, or up to 17 hours of video playback. In the real-world, we found the battery life to be good but not exceptional. On average, we managed to get between six and seven hours with a regular workload, working mainly via the browser. You could expect to squeeze out a bit more if you set Windows 11's battery profile to save battery. The bundled 65W power adapter can be used to fast-charge the laptop.

The Spectre x360 13.5 (2023) has a slightly smaller 66Wh battery, and the same 65W fast charging. With a similar usage environment, we managed to get up to eight hours and 20 minutes at best, and five hours and 36 minutes at worst. Actual battery life for this model will really depend on the display configuration you choose as well.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2024) vs HP Spectre x360 13.5 (2023): Which is right for you?

The new HP Spectre x360 14 (2024) will command a slight premium over the 2023 model, especially since HP has just launched it. But, I feel it is definitely the model to go for given its long-term potential. The tangible improvements like the superior webcam, more powerful processor, and haptic feedback for the trackpad, all make for a better user experience. Plus, the NPU chip in the new processor is currently untapped, and it's only a matter of time before we see all the popular apps take advantage of it. The only low point right now is the okay battery life, but this could improve with future updates and AI workflows begin tapping into the NPU's power.

The HP Spectre x360 14 (2024) is the natural evolution of the series, now with new AI smarts thanks to Intel Core Ultra processors. System and gaming performance gets big improvements, along with the keyboard and trackpad. The laptop is a bit more expensive, but it's worth it when you consider the excellent display, premium build, and improved webcam.

The HP Spectre x360 13.5 (2023) comes in at a close second, and is still worth a buy if you can get a good deal on it. This laptop will still appeal to users who prefer a 3:2 aspect display, or to those who want the sharpest possible resolution. If your workload is not too intensive, and you don't think you will need any hardware-level AI assistance, then the 13th Gen Intel U-series processors should do the job well.

The older HP Spectre x360 (2023) is still a great buy, and it can now be had for a lower price. For those who prefer a taller aspect ratio display or want a higher resolution, they can still opt for this model. It's an excellent 2-in-1 with a premium build and good all-around performance.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2024) vs HP Spectre x360 13.5 (2023): Worth the upgrade?

Reconstructing the Chelyabinsk meteor’s path, with Google Earth, YouTube and high-school math

[March 2: Read the follow-up article, Comparing paths with the pros in Google Earth ]

[March 9: Read the follow-up article,  Three trajectory models of the Chelyabinsk meteoroid compared ]

[April 5: Help scientists to more accurately calculate the trajectory. Visit  www.russianmeteor2013.org to contribute videos or help with the analysis.]

Like many others, I was absolutely astounded by the meteor strike over Chelyabinsk when I woke on Friday morning. One silver lining to our self-surveilling society is that an event of this magnitude is certain to get caught on the myriad of always-on dash- and webcams. I for one could not get enough of the videos.

Might it be possible to use this viral footage with Google Earth to have an initial go at mapping the meteorite’s trajectory? I was pondering this question some 2,500km away from Chelyabinsk when I chanced upon this video:

That place is easy to find — it’s Revolution Square at the absolute center of Chelyabinsk, looking almost directly south. It is also easy to measure — the distance between the two central light poles is 32 meters, as per a quick measurement in Google Earth, while the five lanes of traffic going right to left (west to east) measure 19 meters. From this it is easy to estimate the height of the light poles to be around 12 meters — an estimate corroborated by numerous panoramas in Google Earth showing people next to these lamp posts, giving us added data points.

Using all this information, I was able to do some image analysis in Photoshop on the lengths and angles of the shadows as the meteor streaked across the sky. Here’s an animated gif showing the result of that:

The ensuing grade-school mathematics (SOHCAHTOA!) resulted in three lines of sight at three instants a few seconds apart. (For the sake of the record, I roughly calculated them to be towards 122 degrees at an inclination of 33 degrees at 9:20:28.7, towards 187 degrees at an inclination of 40 degrees at 9:20:32.2, and towards 222 degrees at an inclination of 32 degrees at 9:20:33.4. These times are the video’s own timeline, though they appear to correlate closely with the timelines of other videos.)

This allowed me to draw an inclined plane in Google Earth that should include the meteor’s path, though it does not allow me to know the distance of the meteor from central Chelyabinsk, nor its speed.

meteorgeview

However, we have more clues. We know a fragment of the meteor landed in Lake Chebarkul , roughly 70km WSW of Chelyabinsk. Gratifyingly, the inclined plane generated from the above video intersects with the crash site. Also useful was the estimate by the Russian Academy of Sciences that the meteorite hit the Earth’s atmosphere at around 50,000 km/h, shattering at an altitude of 30-50km. If that was the rough speed of the meteor as it burned up in the video, then the 4.7 seconds between the first and last shadow measurements would have seen it travel 65 km. Fitting a 65km line between these two lines of sight allows us to draw a straight line path for the meteor towards the crash site, with the first measured time yielding a height of 29km, which is the moment the meteor first brightened enough to give a clear shadow.

Download the visualizations for this as a KMZ file to open in Google Earth. Do play with the opacity slider of the overlay to check the alignments yourself — it’s most of the fun.

How does this data square with the Meteosat 9 image that has being doing the rounds ? At first glance, not well: Overlaying the image in Google Earth and aligning the border with Kazakhstan shows a 240km contrail that appears to end some 75km to the ENE of Chelyabinsk, even though the path when traced on the ground also leads directly to Lake Chebarkul.

At first, I thought the image might have been taken 5 minutes earlier, before the meteor streaked straight across Chelyabinsk proper, because the image’s metadata gives us a time of 3:15:00Z, or UTC, which is 6 hours behind Chelyabinsk time. But no meteor is going to take 5 minutes to traverse 75km, so we’ll just have to live with the time discrepancy. Webcams are not atomic clocks.

Much more interesting is the fact that if you look at the position of Meteosat 9, which is in a geostationary orbit, you see that Chelyabinsk is near the horizon of its view of Earth. This leads to extreme foreshortening in the snapshot of the meteor’s contrail:

Meteor vapour trail, 15th Feb 2013

The version used in the overlay is an enhanced view of this image, taken from the same angle. (The blacked-out upper right-hand corner of the overlay is behind the horizon as seen from Meteosat 9.). If you simulate this view of Chelyabinsk in Google Earth, you see that in fact, the contrail aligns quite nicely over Chelyabinsk considering that it would be 30km high and at such an extreme angle over the horizon. So the 4.7 seconds of maximal brightness (with contrail) do get to happen just south of Chelyabinsk proper, as per the above video, and without contradiction by Meteosat 9.

I feel this post would not be complete without some big caveats: I am not a trained scientist; I don’t know if meteors travel through the atmosphere in straight lines or at constant speeds (I assume they don’t, but that it doesn’t matter for back-of-the-envelope type calculations). Still, it is satisfying to know that with judicious use of Google Earth, YouTube and Photoshop you can get quite far in the meteor simulation game. I can’t wait to see what the professionals come up with.

UPDATE 2013-02-16: Via SebastienP in the comments comes another triangulation, comparing the calculated path from the KMZ file with the view from another dash cam. It holds up pretty well!

UPDATE 2013-02-17: In this comment , some smart calculations by Sean Mac are confirmed by a video he’s found showing the contrail crossing almost exactly above the southern suburb of Yemanzhelinsk. I found the exact vantage point of the video he references in Google Earth by connecting this Panoramio photo to this view in the video .

This suggests the meteor’s trajectory towards Earth was higher and steeper along the inclined plane of sight derived from the central Chelyabinsk vantage point than the initial calculation suggested. That’s not surprising, as that calculation was based on an initial estimate of the velocity by the Russian Academy of Sciences, which now appears to have been on the low side.

I’ve now added a second path for the meteor in Google Earth, together with the location of the vantage point in Yemanzhelinsk,  in this KMZ file . Open it as a complement to the first KMZ file to see what I would consider to be an upper bound (green) for the trajectory along the same inclined plane, with a new likeliest path (red).

“Looking up” in Google Earth from the vantage point in Yemanzhelinsk (I can because I have a  3D mouse from 3DConnexion ), I get a very similar angle of view of the contrail when framed by the NNW axis of the buildings on that square.

A further video showing the perspective from the town of Korkino further north (included in the new KMZ file) shows that the meteor passed a little to the south of there, allowing for a pretty accurate triangulation. (Thanks to Robin Whittle and liilliil  in the comments for the heads up.)

UPDATE 2013-02-22: OK, so this is kind of special: An astrophysics paper has just been submitted to ArXiv.org that models the orbit of the Chelyabinsk meteor, referencing this blog post as a starting point:  A preliminary reconstruction of the orbit of the Chelyabinsk Meteoroid by Jorge I. Zuluagaa and Ignacio Ferrin. Details are here , and here comes the resulting animation:

Great stuff Stefan! How about finding the exact points on the ground where the CCTV showed shadows of Lenin’s head and other objects? Then you could go to the spots and place a mirror lying on the ground horizontally and a sextant to measure the az/el of the CCTV camera. Repeating this for all shadow objects would get a very accurate Az/el for the meteorite, and repeating it from other CCTV sites (especially ones in other towns) enable 3D triangulation of the trajectory.

That’s a good idea. Regarding the shadows at Revolution Square, I did some calculations to try and ascertain the camera distortion. I did this by comparing the proportions of distances between the lamp posts in google maps and what those proportions should be when allowing for foreshortening off to the left and right of the camera. That is, the foreshortening as you and I would see when viewing from the camera position, not lens distortion.

The distance proportion was greater as viewed from the camera compared with the top-down view, due to foreshortening, as expected but it was further skewed by lens distortion. I found that the 100 degree angle (122 to 222 azimuth) was more like 90 degrees, possibly even less. This decreases the fireball travel by more than 10% because it is the start and end azimuths which are in question. When plotted against the trajectory, this change in azimuth constitutes about a 15 to 20% reduction in bolide travel distance and therefore a commensurate reduction in speed- down to 14 or 15 km per second which is in keeping with what the Russian Academy said.

This would completely change the cosmic approach speed and therefore the orbit calculated by Zuluaga and Ferrin. They openly acknowledge that camera distortion has not been accounted for due to a lack of information on the lenses. It appears they used Revolution Square and one other camera for their most accurate azimuth calcs and a dash cam for the speed calc. This dash cam has tram lines ‘hanging’ upwards and measures the bolide from the periphery of the screen.

I think Stephan’s work is great and I followed it avidly at the time. I just think that camera distortion does need to be addressed and your method would do that. I’m sure there must be an enthusiastic surveying student who could pop down there on his lunch break and give us the results- if only be could be made aware of our needs!

P.S. the Zuluaga and Ferrin paper “additional info” page does show a +\- margin for bolide speed but possibly not based on the camera distortion factor and its only 2 or 3 %.

Thanks Stefan.. I miss-stated a bit ! The az/el of the top of the objects needs measuring, not the camera’s position. Also, a plate of water would be better than a mirror, because the water surface (with no wind) would be exactly level. The sextant is used to measure the angle between the reflected image off the water and the real object. One needs to crouch as close as possible to the plate of water placed at each chosen shadow position to minimise parallax. The halve the angle…it.voila ! The direction could be got by the methods you discussed. If the exact position of shadows is a problem, cover the ground with a grid (as archaeologists do) then retrieve the image which the CCTV takes of this, and overlay.

The vapour trail looks double, and I guess it means the meteorite was not a sphere. It might have had lateral g-forces as on an aircraft at an airshow, where the jet plume (even for a single-engined plane)also tends to be in two plumes sometimes. Googling on the re-entry g-forces of Apollo Moon-Earth gives an idea of deliberate deviations occuring on reentry. Scaking-up to the meteroite’s speed might help the maths.
