HP Spectre x2
turned off. This may be too little for some, especially when you need to sacrifice one of these ports to charge your device. That being said, the need to charge the Spectre x2 while on the go is rare, due to its excellent battery life.
This 2-in-1 device is equipped with an Intel Core m3-6Y30 processor, which is a dual-core processor with Intel HD Graphics 515 built-in. There are also 4GB of RAM and a 128GB M.2 SSD onboard. These allow the Spectre x2 to deliver sufficient performance for most work-related tasks, while gaming is also not an issue, but only with less graphically-intensive games like Stardew Valley.
For a better idea of the Spectre x2's performance, we ran Futuremark's PCMark 8 and 3DMark. In PCMark 8's Home suite, this device scored 2,147, which is a reasonable score for a system like this. As for PCMark's Creative suite, it scored 2,022, which again is a respectable score. We then ran 3DMark's Cloud Gate, where it obtained 4,695, confirming that it'll only support casual games.
In day-to-day use, we found the Spectre x2 to be a solid device. It's incredibly light, weighing in at only 1.1kg, and thanks to a slim profile, at about 10mm with the keyboard base, fits into any notebook bag easily. It's also responsive, being capable of booting up and loading documents in mere seconds, even from cold boot. The keyboard is comfortable to use, and is backlit, so you can type away in dim cafes, should you so wish, while its kickstand is sturdy enough to support its weight at various angles.
As a device used for entertainment, the display is sharp and bright, and comes with a Full HD resolution. Naturally, being a 2-in-1 device also means that it has a touchscreen display. The speakers are tuned by Bang & Olufsen, so they're pretty good, though they could have been a little louder. by
