The HP Spectre 13 X2 is a suitable convertible, but it doesn’t warrant the high-end price tag. With an Intel Core i5 processor and 4GB of DDR3 its performance is capable, but the device is outclassed by competitors such as the Microsoft Surface 2 Pro and Dell XPS 13.
The Spectre also offers a high-grade durable build, but the awkward button placement and wobbling display can make the device uncomfortable to operate in both laptop and tablet modes. While the display offers solid color contrast, the overall viewing experience is marred by the screen’s limited brightness.
If you have your heart set on a convertible with a high quality physical keyboard, then the HP Spectre 13 X2 may be worth a look, but for everyone else there are better options available
- Stylish Aesthetic
- Quality Keyboard Dock
- Solid Battery Life
- Bulky Design
- Tablet Wobbles in Dock
- Awkward Button Placement
