5New Spectre x360 is one of the most attractive laptops on the market
By Tech Insider
With its stunning performance, exquisite design, and 9-hour battery life, the Spectre x360 is the best laptop HP has ever made.

Gorgeous, slim design;
Speedy Intel 7th-Gen CPU,
Powerful quad-speaker setup;
Wide touchpad,
Fantastic clicky keyboard;
Vibrant, accurate display;
Has both USB-A and USB-C ports
SD card slot

Hinge could be a tiny bit stiffer

Now, let's go step by step.

1. Ports:
Spectre obliges, with one USB 3.1 Type- A port and 2 USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 3. This is a crucial feature which Apple missed in new "Dongle Book Pro".

2. Display:
15-inch, 4K display with super thin bezels, it's bright and colorful with stunning pixel density.

3. Performance:
New Intel 7th-Gen Kaby Lake CPU, 16GB of RAM and 512GB PCIe SSD.
With this kind of setup, laptop absolutely flies.

4. Graphics:
The Spectre has enough horsepower to reach a playable 40 frames per second (1920 x 1080) in some light games like Starcraft or Dota or even Overwatch (with low settings).

5. Audio:
The quad speakers definitely did their job, I didn't hear any distortion at max volume.
Still, I think that MacBook Pro has the best speakers on the market, but HP was very close to the king.

6. Keyboard and touchpad:
The keyboard and touchpad are very beautiful and super wide, the system never confused different types of clicks.

7. Battery Life:
HP has greatly increased the Spectre x360's endurance. The battery life has gone after 8 hours and 46 minutes on our web-surfing battery test.
Some people reporting that Spectre x360 losing charge when it turned off, so I did some test to check this issue.

Yesterday I fully charged my Spectre 360, I turned it off, unplugged the power cord and left it for overnight. I did the same test for 2 other laptops - Alienware 17 R3 and HP Spectre. Here is the result: In the morning, after I turned the laptop on, battery indicator showed 97% of charge on Spectre 360. My Alienware 17 R3 lost 4% of charge but wife's Hp Spectre surprisingly has 99% of charge on startup!

Let's get back to Spectre x360, it has lost 3% but I think that those percents are gone for turning the device On. I asked my friend to do the same on his 2015 Macbook Pro and he confirmed that his laptop usually losing 2% of battery charge on startup. Seems that all laptops have the same behavior. Operation System (Windows or MacOS) using more power for starting all the services quickly in order to speed up the boot process, and I am totally OK with that. It's better to have the laptop up and running quickly for the cost of several percents of a battery.

8. Webcam:
The audio was crystal clear, pictures and videos looked pretty sharp too, much better than MacBook's "potato".

9. Heat:
After 1 hour of gaming the bottom was a little hotter, but not worryingly so.

Bottom Line:
With its stunning performance, exquisite design, and 9-hour battery life, the Spectre x360 is the best laptop HP has ever made.

I gave it 4 stars because of the Cheap Stylus that came with this unit. With that said, this is possibly the BEST Computer ever developed for home and office use. With one exception, the Crapy (Stylus) that ships with computer. You would think with all the x-tra Fancy packaging that I know had the cost passed on to me probably cost a easy $50.00. They could have shipped it in a less expensive box and spent the money on a better Stylus. This computer, as I said one of the Best I have ever owned and or Used (I buy a new one every year since 1993) This computer runs like a dream. I bought the more expensive model for the Graphics Interface and x-tra memory for running Cad programs and its fast! This is a must for any Serious Business Person or Student. Sure you can get by with a less expensive HP version but they don't have the Power this one has. Power is important if your using Cad, 3D Design, and many other higher level programs that can usually only be run with a Desktop Device.

The Windows 10 program is the best yet. I have heard some complaints but I contribute them to cheaper laptops with the minimal requirements to run Windows 10. For me, I did have a learning curve since the introduction of Windows 7 but after I got through that Windows 10 comes easy and has a few more features you won't find on Win 7 or 8.1. I also own a Surface 4 Pro I like a lot, regardless of what you may read or hear It does not run the 3D and Cad programs very well. It will run them, but with a lot of hangups and glitches. I also have Windows 10 Pro on my Surface 4 but there are only insignificant differences between Win 10 Home and Win 10 Pro as far as I can tell. I also use MacBook Pro for running some non-traditional programs and compared side by side with the X-360, they both have there strengths but they each do things the other may not be able to because of programming differences. But thats another subject for another time.

Getting back to the CHEAP piece of CRAP Stylus Pen they shipped with my NEW $1700 HP X-360 you should know there is a Solution for this! I have read where some people have tried Dell. "Other" HP. Meko's and many other brands of Styluses with poor results. So instead of investing in Pen's others have already tried or haven't tried and got to thinking about how my Surface Pro Runs Windows 10 Pro and my New X-360 uses Windows 10 Home edition so naturally I had to try the Surface Pen and to my amazement it works better with the X-360 than it did with the Surface Pro. So I bought an extra Pen for exclusive use with the X-360 and I couldn't be more satisfied.
Now keep in mind the Pen that came with my New X360 has a "Cheap" feel to it, uncomfortable to use and has issues. In Windows 10 you can use a 3 button Pen that allows you to choose "Useful" options and does more than the pen that came with my X-360 of which only has two buttons and less choices on how I can use those buttons for additional options. So you have to ask yourself if you want a Stylus like the one that comes with the new X-360 that does not work well and on top of that has less features than the Stylus that comes with the Surface Pro OR do you want a Stylus that actually works like a Stylus should, knowing every-time you pick it up to use it your going to be impressed with the response. So if your interested in upgrading your stylus pen to one that actually compliments the touch screen of your New X-360 this is the one I bought and have had great satisfaction with; Search: Microsoft Surface Pen for Surface Pro 4 (Blue) for Surface Pro 4, or Search:: Microsoft Item 3XY-00021. They come in 4 colors and are around $49.00.

I do not understand why HP didn't just add the MICROSOFT STYLUS as the Pen of Choice with the HP X-360 instead of having to introduce there own HP Stylus for use with the X-360. Microsoft 10 Software with a Microsoft Designed Pen? That seems like a No-Brainer to me? I do know the Microsoft Stylus and Software sure work great together compared to pen that shipped with the X-360.
Its a more expensive Stylus, but its what should have came with the X-360 anyhow in my opinion. I don't write very many reviews but I felt this one could really help some of you out and save you from guessing at which Stylus to invest in when you find out how crappy the one that ships with the X-360 is. One last comment, I do Not understand how a company like HP could put out such a Top Line Computer like the X-360 and then cheap out on one of the most important accessories that makes this computer so desirable to Business People and Students alike, that truly baffles me?

3Beautiful, fast computer with one huge flaw
By Bif Bechenschnifter
It's an elegantly designed laptop, with loads of functionality and a very fast processor. If you use the touchpad, rather than a mouse or the touchscreen, though, look elsewhere. This touchpad is impossible to use, and I've screwed around with the settings over and over (and had the HP support staff try too). Just moving the cursor across the screen will result in selecting various random things. The cursor comes and goes at will, and when it shows up, it has performed some function presumably on its own. Very frustrating to use.

October 6 2017 update: I've used this laptop for about 4 months now, and my frustration with the touchpad issues have increased. The computer is almost impossible to use, if you rely on the touchpad as your main point/select option. It's too bad, since in every other aspect, it's a wonderful machine. I wish I had known about the touchpad problem, prior to purchase. I would've kept shopping.
