HP is one of the most appreciated laptop manufacturers and somehow, they always manage to bring quality laptops at the fair price. HP Spectre x360 is yet another solid laptop from their lineup, and it’s more aligned towards office and entertainment use and isn’t that good when it comes to gaming. It comes with a 2.2-GHz Intel Core i5-5200U CPU, and although i5 CPUs are known to be very good, the “U” series isn’t that good compared to a desktop version. HP Spectre x360 comes with Windows 8.1 installed, but you can always upgrade it to Windows 10, which we strongly recommend.
The 8 GB DDR3 RAM located in HP Spectre x360 is now a bare minimum, and combined with a solid CPU like i5, will give you some space to manoeuvre, although multitasking isn’t suggested here. As you’ve probably expected, this laptop comes with Intel HD Graphics 5500 GPU, which is integrated GPU made for basic functions like watching movies and playing non-demanding games at reasonable settings. With its 13.3″ in size, HP Spectre x360 screen isn’t that big, but it has a good quality and 1080p resolution. Design-wise, HP Spectre x360 looks and feels great, especially because it’s very compact.
