HP may have updated its flagship convertible, the Spectre x360, earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show 2017 but it is not done yet. In the latest round of updates, HP is giving the buyers of the 2-in-1 an option of getting a 4K (3840 x 2160) Ultra HD display as well as support for an active pen.
For a system as high-end as this one, the ultra high-res. option was awkwardly missing till now but thankfully the gap is being covered.
The special 4K version of the convertible will be available with 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB solid state drive for $1600, which is not exactly a surprise. The ludicrous display can only be yours with the 13.3-inch Spectre.
Should you decide to buy a version that is guaranteed to be decidedly less of a resource-hog, you can buy a 1080p Full HD variant which can be yours with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB SSD for $1199, or 16 GB RAM and 512 GB SSD for $1350.
Apart from that, you get a Core i7 processor with GeForce 940MX GPU. Connectivity options include USB-C & Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.1, HDMI, Hello-compatible webcam and B&G speakers.
The battery life is also fairly phenomenal at 12 hours and 45 minutes, while the design has been improved over the last year’s offering, being slightly thicker but also narrower.
The only trouble then is the availability but hopefully the online stores will find a way to cover you there following a ‘small’ price hike.
