The HP Spectre x360 (2020) is an excellent option for anyone in the market for a solid notebook. Even in the shadow of its successor, the HP Spectre x360 (2021), it can hold its own, rocking double the RAM of prior models alongside Iris Plus integrated graphics và the Intel bộ vi xử lý core i7-1065G7 CPU. And, it stands toe-to-toe with some of the best laptops out there.
But, it goes beyond sheer power. The HP Spectre x360 (2020) doesn’t just vày the work of your standard office máy vi tính as well as take on demanding projects, but it also comes with a design & feature phối that would put most typical laptops to lớn shame. It’s more stunning than when the line first launched, keeping the line’s beloved gem-cut thiết kế while offering a gorgeous 4K touchscreen option across all configurations, which is certainly a welcome improvement.
Unfortunately, packing that powerful hardware into such a slender chassis does have its drawbacks. The HP Spectre x360 (2020) runs pretty hot, particularly if you’re using it for demanding tasks such as 3d rendering or 4K video clip editing. Of course, it’s no gaming machine either; the lack of a proper graphics card means that the latest big games will be beyond your reach. However, the Iris Plus graphics can handle more than you might expect at lower resolutions - perfect for puzzle games & low-poly indie titles.
Of course, all that glitz also comes with a price tag khổng lồ match. Our mã sản phẩm clocks in at $1,749.99 (around £1,350, AU$2,600), which is no small sum lớn pay for a laptop, but we’ll get more into that later. The HP Spectre x360 does cost more than many 2-in-1s available on the market right now, although you’ll struggle khổng lồ find one with the same raw quality of design và performance.
The drawbacks don’t outweigh the benefits, though - not even close – & these problems really aren’t chất lượng to it either. There’s no máy tính lighter that can play games better, or manage heat more efficiently. As the sum of its parts, the HP Spectre x360 2020 is a sexy, powerful machine that will vày whatever you ask of it.

Our reviews model of the HP Spectre x360 (2020) is high-end, but overall pricing in the US starts cheaper at $1,299.99, going up lớn $1,899.99 depending on the configuration. A number of options are available, with the option lớn custom-configure your own x360 on HP’s website.
The 4K AMOLED screen (a stand-out feature of our model) does have an exclusive configuration, though.
In the UK, four fixed configurations of the HP Spectre x360 (2020) are available, ranging from £1,199 lớn £1,799. More configurations are available in Australia, ranging from AUS$2,199 khổng lồ AUS$3,599.
Overall, the pricing is what we’d expect for a premium 2-in-1 laptop. It leans towards the expensive side, but you get what you pay for here; the HP Spectre x360’s superior design và performance are worth the higher price. It’s also worth noting that the HP Spectre x360 (2020) does come with HP’s Tilt Pen, a decent smart stylus.

Straight out of the box, it’s clear that the HP Spectre x360 (2020) is a high-quality piece of hardware. The brushed metal finish means the whole máy tính xách tay feels robust, và the same build quality extends lớn the namesake 360-degree hinge that enables it lớn swap between máy tính xách tay and tablet modes.
Naturally, weight is a factor here. Despite its sturdy chassis, the HP Spectre x360 (2020) is as lightweight as they come, weighing in at just over a kilo. It’s easy to hold in one hand, & the near bezel-less screen means that the overall kích thước is only a little larger than the display itself.
It’s impressively thin, too; perhaps not the absolute thinnest và lightest laptop on the market, but it’s up there with the other major contenders. However, that super-thin kiến thiết means that there’s limited room for heat management inside the case.
The HP Spectre x360 (2020)’s cooling is handled by two small fans that sit together on the base of the laptop, and while they vì chưng run quietly (unless you’re thrashing the CPU with demanding software), they’re not particularly powerful. The HP Spectre x360 (2020) can get quite hot during periods of extended use, never lớn a concerning degree but perhaps to an uncomfortable one if it’s actually sitting on your lap.
Fortunately, the rest of the design is không tính phí of such engineering mishaps. As we said, the screen bezel is practically non-existent, và the display itself is a glorious AMOLED panel. Blacks are black as pitch, while bright colors pop with vibrance và the maximum brightness is great even in well-lit spaces.
The keyboard is also a joy lớn use, softly backlit in trắng with nice large keys despite the compact design. There’s no numpad - và the arrow keys are frustratingly truncated - but these are issues that plague almost every 13-inch convertible laptop. The trackpad definitely beats out many of its contemporaries, though, with a wide cảm ứng area & satisfyingly firm click.
Physical connectivity is well-handled, with two Thunderbolt 3 enabled USB-C ports and a single USB-A port that opens on a sprung clasp; the port itself is larger than the super-thin edge of the laptop, so it snaps shut when not in use. It’s a nifty bit of thiết kế that we’ve seen before, but rarely done this well.
Joining those ports are a headphone jack & micro
SD card reader, although we bởi vì wonder if HP should have sprung for a dedicated AC charging port. The HP Spectre x360 charges via USB-C, leaving you with one less port if you want to use it plugged in.
Intel’s 10th-generation máy tính xách tay CPUs pull their weight & then some, so pairing one with a solid 16GB of high-speed RAM means that the HP Spectre x360 (2020) chews up everyday work tasks with ease. Web browsing, streaming videos, and using the Microsoft Office software suite are all smooth và easy to vì on the HP Spectre x360.
This 2-in-1 isn’t satisfied with just that, of course. More complex tasks lượt thích rendering and video encoding are more of an option here thanks to lớn the expanded memory & new, more powerful processor. Of course, if you’re working with high-intensity software on the regular, you might want a system with a more powerful graphics solution.
The Iris Plus graphics dominated older integrated graphics in our tests, powering through with high scores in our graphical tests compared lớn previous models. Performance in our Cinebench rendering benchmark wasn’t quite as impressive, but was still good for an ultralight laptop.
Gaming on the HP Spectre x360 (2020) is definitely an option too, although only at the decidedly casual end of the spectrum. Recent triple-A releases aren’t likely khổng lồ run well without severely dropping the resolution & graphical quality, but slightly older games or titles without demanding graphics should run fine. We enjoyed a spot of Tomb Raider và the excellent indie gem FTL: Faster Than Light with good performance at 1080p.
There are some integrated features boasted by the HP Spectre x360 that all fall under one umbrella: privacy. This is the ideal máy tính for anyone wary of the risks posed by an online presence, with multiple features designed lớn keep you & your data secure.
First up is a now-common máy tính feature, the Windows Hello function. Using an IR camera array connected lớn the x360’s HD webcam, you can log into your máy vi tính using your face, even in poorly lit conditions (i.e. When you’re curled up in bed trying khổng lồ watch Netflix).
Next is the camera kill switch, a physical switch on the side of the máy vi tính that manually cuts power to lớn the webcam for added security. There’s also a fingerprint scanner just below the keyboard, letting you login quickly if you don’t want lớn use Windows Hello.

Battery life is one of the only areas where the HP Spectre x360 (2020) doesn’t outright excel. The battery life is still good; standard use will see it last all work day, around 10 hours, without needing khổng lồ charge. As with previous models of the HP Spectre x360, higher intensity tasks will batter that battery, cutting it down as low as 4 hours.
It’s not bad, although it’s actually slightly below previous configurations of the HP Spectre x360. The 2019 mã sản phẩm actually performed better in battery tests, but only by a small margin. All that fancy new hardware has taken its toll.
The battery does charge quite fast thanks to lớn the USB-C connector, charging from empty to 100% in barely more than an hour. It’s easy lớn charge while in use, too, thanks to lớn the angled USB-C port ensuring that the power cable won’t get in your way.Trending Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 i

The HP Spectre x360 13 is a bit of a dream convertible laptop. Not much has changed in this 2020-2021 version apart from a shift to lớn Intel"s 11th gen processors. But these bring a significant jump in performance, especially for gaming, with no downsides.
You have plenty of laptops lớn choose from with this much cash to lớn spend. You could get a (admittedly non-convertible) Mac
Book Air, a Dell XPS 13 2-in-1, or a Lenovo Yoga 9i (although the Shadow Black mã sản phẩm we saw we can"t recommend).
Particular benefits of the HP Spectre x360 13 include an ultra-small footprint, a near-perfect hinge kiến thiết that"s far more sturdy than most, & a great keyboard. This is a style máy tính xách tay that doesn"t compromise on the basics, & that matters because no matter how expensive a máy tính looks or feels, you always take the outer gloss for granted quickly enough.
Our quick take
The HP Spectre x360 13 is a laptop focused on quality. Its build is exceptional. You get the cool và hard feel of aluminium, very low-flex panels & a non-wobbly convertible display hinge.Its keyboard is far better than the thin, clicky designs used in plenty of slim laptops. Và while the weight isn"t dramatically low, this laptop"s footprint is among the smallest in its class.
Sure, you don"t get a slot-in stylus và for the deepest display colour you"ll need khổng lồ upgrade lớn the 4K OLED version, but HP has aced the parts that affect your day-to-day experience using this machine. Don"t be confused by the funky angular design, HP knows the importance of getting the basics right. Oh, và it costs less than the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1, which is an added bonus. It"s top marks all round.
