Reliable, effectively designed fifteen inch laptop with tremendous screen. Have had this for just two weeks, so early times, but so much so great. Not the lightest, but a definitely properly built and sturdy 15 inch laptop with full touch screen and convertible type issue. Keyboard is superb in my belief (i am a rapid touch typist, so i tend to be picky about my keyboards and know a superior just one when i use it). The screen is exceptional and it is definitely terrific to be capable to flip this to tent method and view online video comprehensive-screen, you can also look through the world wide web very comfortably in this method employing touch to navigate really fluidly. I cannot consider at any time likely again to a non-touch screen laptop. The involved pen appears to be to function properly, but i personally won’t be able to consider of a use case for it for my operate, as i am not an artist. As perfectly as the web, my key application mileage is with ms business and lightroom, each these programmes operate efficiently and the screen seriously comes into its very own with lightroom for image modifying (i work with big documents from a complete-frame digicam in raw).

Fantastic colours and exceptional resolution. Haven’t pushed the processor nevertheless but i am confident it wont disappoint.

I’m really content with this laptop. I am quite contented with this laptop, i have it with the i7 processor and it is really incredibly swift. Applying the touchscreen on the laptop altered my consumer patterns, it was so uncomplicated and swift to get adopted to the positive aspects. Maybe some individuals might dislike the finger prints, but i believe however worth for it, it didn’t bother me.

Acquired this to replace an existing hp laptop which was obtaining old. Its a lot lighter than my past laptop which is mainly because of to it getting 15′ instead than my previous 17′, however thanks to the spectre screen being so near to the edge of the laptop i actually have not recognized considerably difference in screen measurement. The touchscreen will make on the web gaming and acquiring substantially less complicated.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Looks even nicer than an Mac!
  • Beautifully crafted and highly recommended (even though mine was a dud)
  • 15.6″ a nice laptop so far as it goes, but unless you need the screen size go 13″

Fantastic colours and exceptional resolution. Haven’t pushed the processor nevertheless but i am confident it wont disappoint.

Appears even nicer than an mac. I have a yoga, which i really like, but lenova has dropped the entire size usb port, which my son actually required. Appears to be like spectacular and i am now very jealous.

This review is from : HP Spectre x360 13-ac004na 13.3-inch UHD Touch Screen Convertible Laptop with Stylus (Dark Ash Silver) – (Intel Core i7-7500U, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD, Windows 10)

Excellent machine, highly recommended. I have had this machine for about 4 months now. I have always linked hp to printers rather than anything else. To be honest some of the laptops they make are pretty bad in terms of performance or durability. I though quite a lot before deciding to go for the spectre x360 but now that i have it i am very happy of my decision. The reasons for going for this model:- 4k display- latest core i7 cpu- discrete video card, although not the latest from nvidia- touch screen with pen- full hdmi port- windows hello compatible camerai use the laptop primarily for playing diablo 3 and watching netflix or hbo go. The performance is great, i tried diablo 3 at 4k with all settings at low and it played quite fine. At 4k one doesn’t really need to add aa or any other setting since the pixels are invisible at this point. I play it regularly at 1080p with settings at medium and it run flawlessly around 55 fps. The fans go crazy though, especially if the room temperature is above 25 c.

Beautifully crafted and highly recommended (even though mine was a dud). I did significant research and thought long and hard about whether to buy a 2 in 1 or laptop with a touch screen, but as my main reason for wanting the touch screen is to use windows ink, its a no brainer that it has to be a 2 in 1 (ever tried writing on a laptop screen??). The spectre (13 inch) does transition well and is very usable as both laptop and tablet – this is undoubtedly a beautifully crafted and well designed machine which, given my general experience, i would still recommend as it is a pleasure to use. Unfortunately i received a “5:30pm friday afternoon” job, which repeatedly froze for no apparent reason (even after upgrading bios and all necessary hp/windows updates). The only way to get the machine working again was to close the lid, wait for it to go to sleep, and then open the lid again where it would continue on as normal until the next freeze. I ran some simple diagnostics (including a factory restore) but as an it professional i am not inclined to spend hours on the phone to support people (especially as this happened from the outset and as this was happening very frequently – every 15 minutes or so), thus i have returned it to amazon. Google searches show a few other people have experienced these freezes, but there are also many positive reviews and so i i assume this is a manufacturing fault and not a design flaw – if you do encounter this happening then i suggest you return for a replacement. (putting your new machine through its paces during the first couple of days is always a good idea, and the app prime95 (google it) is good for checking out if you have a dud even if all seems well. I did not need to use this app on this machine – it froze during web browsing/simple tasks which were not putting any processing pressure on the system). If anyone else has encountered this problem (and found a fix or not) please do post on here so that other people can benefit.

Bought 15″ for the ports otherwise would have gone for much lighter 13″. Arrived in italy two days ahead of estimate.

Cracking laptop just as good as a macbook pro 2016 or 2017 models. This is a great laptop in my opinion and i was surprised to read some negative reviews – i wondered if they were from competitors as i genuinely can’t understand how you could dislike the spectre x360 16gb 15 inch laptop. The picture quality is 4k and it beats the recent macbook (i own the 2016 pro), it is realitively fast and the usb c’s mean that it is future proof. For a business user the fliping of the screen is fantastic and the pen provided works 10/10. I get at least 7 to 8 hours of battery life when i am constantly on it so it is pretty decent. I think it looks beautiful too and very professional. Hope some the negative reviews don’t put people off as i nearly did when i read them – thankfully i did lots of research and read a lot of positive reviews by professional reviewers which put my mind at ease a bit. To summerise – cracking laptop just as good as a macbook pro 2016 or 2017 models – don’t be afraid.

Bought this to replace an existing hp laptop which was getting old. Its much lighter than my previous laptop which is mainly due to it being 15″ rather than my previous 17″, however due to the spectre screen being so close to the edge of the laptop i really haven’t noticed much difference in screen size. The touchscreen makes online gaming and purchasing much easier.

Great looking machine that perfoms with style. This is a really well specced , lightweight laptop with a nice look. :the 13″ screen is clear and sharp, though slightly prone to glare/reflection. The touch screen is very responsive. Sound-wise i tend to use headphones or a bluetooth speaker, but the onboard speakers are adequate for lap based use. The bang & olufsen software doesn’t seem to do do much – and given how thing the laptop is there really isn’t much room for any serious bass producing speakers. Storage is via ssd andalthough the device has a fan it is as quiet as a phone/ipad in operation so you are not competing against a background whirr. I’ve used the spectre extensively for work and home use over the last few weeks with no signs of overheating after hours of continuous use. I have all but disabled the trackpad – the gestures etc were too sensitive/unreliable and as the device has a touch screen seemed more trouble than benefit. I use an hp active pen for detailed screen work or a wireless mouse if i am working on spreadsheets/powerpoint.

Looks nice but works not as nice. . Pro: the built quality is excellent and the design very captivatying, the 4k screen is stunning and viewing angles are very good. Pen works flawlessly, hinges are quite stiff for a convertible with a heavy screen. Cons: the trackpad is awful compared to my 2012 macbook pro, it works dependig on the applications, browsing on edge is ok, but chrome is very annoying. The extra columns of keys home, end, page up ad down on the far right of the keyboard makes it very difficult to type if you’re used to a standard layout. The 4k screen has scaling problems when using some software that are not optimized for 4k displays. I returned mine after 2 days.

Solid, well made 15 inch laptop with super screen. Have had this for just 2 weeks, so early days, but so far so good. Not the lightest, but a really nicely built and robust 15 inch laptop with full touch screen and convertible form factor. Keyboard is excellent in my opinion (i’m a fast touch typist, so i tend to be picky about my keyboards and know a good one when i use it). The screen is superb and it is really great to be able to flip this to tent mode and watch video full-screen, you can also browse the web very comfortably in this mode using touch to navigate very fluidly. I can’t imagine ever going back to a non-touch screen laptop. The included pen seems to work well, but i personally can’t think of a use case for it for my work, as i am not an artist. As well as the web, my main app mileage is with ms office and lightroom, both these programmes work smoothly and the screen really comes into its own with lightroom for photo editing (i work with large files from a full-frame camera in raw).

15. 6″ a nice laptop so far as it goes, but unless you need the screen size go 13″. This was a very early post of my first impressions to help any prospective buyers. I have updated it as i used the laptopto start with, it looks very nice, and seems well put together. The software load seems quite clean – i did uninstall mcafee and a couple of other hp apps that i won’t use, and i cleared out the games that were pinned to the start menu, but there isn’t too much junk installed. From there it was a reasonably simple process to get the computer configured to my liking. The keyboard is nice to type on and the touchscreen seems nicely responsive. The trackpad seems pretty good so far, very wide, which i’m fine with, but i am having an issue where the mouse would move to the right and make phantom clicks, even when i’m not touching the computer. After a restart that stopped once, but in the midst of typing this it’s done it a number of time, which is annoying. I’ll see if this continues, but this is where it’s losing a star right now. Otherwise, everything seems to tick along quite nicely.
