After a summer where the holiday has been spent at home, we are now all getting to work – which also takes place at home. So maybe it was time to upgrade the home office with some better equipment. HP is ready with a new series of computers for just this occasion.
At the better end of the litter we find the HP Specter X360 14.
As with previous Specter generations, this is an elegantly designed PC with a 360-degree hinge, so the machine with a touch screen and pen can also be used as a tablet.
The biggest news with the Specter x360 is that after more than a decade of widescreen displays, HP has reinvented the relatively higher display format. Not 4: 3 as in the old days, but 3: 2. It provides 20 percent more space in height, and has the same proportions as a horizontal A4 sheet.
Specter x360 14 comes with the all-new 11th generation Intel Core processor, which should make the machine a third faster than last year’s model. Battery life is up to 17 hours.
The screen resolution is 3000 x 2000 pixels, and there is an edition with OLED panel.
Pricing and Availability
• The HP Specter x360 14 hits stores in November. The price will be about 1,300. There is also a slightly cheaper model with a 13. Screen.
