American brand HP has rolled out a new 15” HP Spectre x360 laptop. The super sleek chassis is made of aluminium. The company claims that the new model is built with keeping the customer feedback in mind. HP states that its users voted for 15-inch displays and Ultra HD resolution. Powerful graphics was another popular request.
To anticipate the needs of the customers, HP offers the x360 in 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch screen options. These are touch panels that pack in 3840×2160 pixels. To protect it against scratches, HP has used Gorilla Glass protection.
The x360 is powered by Intel’s 8th generation Core i7 processor. You can choose up to 16 GB of RAM. For storage, there’s a 512 GB SSD. HP has added an NVIDIA 940MX discrete graphics chip to handle gaming and other resource hungry programs. The company has increased the battery capacity to complement the more powerful processor. Added Fast Charge technology ensures that you can top up 50 percent in just 30 minutes.
The x360 ships with a stylus for taking notes, marking up PDFs, and drawing. The laptop comes with HP’s wide vision FHD IR webcam. The onboard speakers are sourced from Bang and Olufsen. Despite its slim design, the x360 offers an HDMI port, USB 3 port, USB 3 Type C port, and a Thunderbolt 3 port.
The laptop offers backlight keyboard. It is equipped with IR thermal sensor to measure laptop’s temperature to control fine tune the airflow. On the software side of things, it runs Windows 10. The HP Spectre x360 will ship in March for $1,369 (approx. Rs 87,000).
