With a fresh 13-inch model, HP is again tweaking its famous Spectre x360 convertible range. While the fresh x360 retains its predecessor's general appearance, it is 13 percent lower. It also has less noticeable screen bezels, with a 90 percent screen-to-body proportion in the bottom quarter of the laptop, where the 2018 model displayed only 78 percent. The fresh spectrum is also heavier at 2.8 pounds than both the MacBook Air 2018 and the MacBook Pro 2019.

HP was prepared to construct stronger heat and thermals into the device despite shaving off more than a quarter of the desktop. If you weren't a supporter of the two-tone "Nightfall Black" and "Poseidon Blue" colour choices of the lineup, the excellent news is that in a simplified "Natural Silver" color version (illustrated above) HP will give the fresh model. There is also a fresh kill switch on the desktop hand for the privacy-minded, which reduces authority to the webcam.

Internally, the x360 involves Core i5 and Core i7 processors of the recent 10th generation of Intel. You can now equip the desktop with a fresh 4 K AMOLED screen that maximizes at a 400nits vivid. The 4 K screen also involves a broad range of DCI-P3 color coverage, making it perfect for editing pictures and video and supporting the latest True Black HDR format from VESA. If HDR on PCs has not been sufficiently complex, True Black HDR is technically a stage below HDR 10 and Dolby Vision, but games and video material should still appear better. Complimenting the 4 K display is an anti-reflection coating that claims HP makes the computer outdoors more usable.

The X360's LTE and WiFi modems were also modified by HP. They are now capable of Cat 16 and WiFi 6, which, if you can locate compatible networks, should lead to quicker communication. In addition, the LTE modem comes with the computer as standard, rather than as an optional add-on. As before, HP argues that its laptop can provide 22 hours of battery life. Although it is probable to drop short of that target, the X360's battery can get back up to a 50 percent load in 30 minutes with quick charging.

The fresh 13-inch Spectre x360 convertible laptop will be accessible for the base model with Intel Core i5 processor, 8 GB RAM and 256 GB SSD in October. To get the top-end model with 4 K AMOLED screen, you will have to pay a $400 discount. A Core i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD complemented by a 32 GB Intel Optane memory module will also be upgraded to the more costly model. Best Buy will also be carrying the laptop later this autumn when it becomes accessible.
