The HP Spectre x360 15 by default equipped with a 4K display
To CES, HP has prepared a major update to their portable computers, the number of new products appeared and laptops series Spectre x360: x360 Spectre 13 and Spectre x360 15. The Junior model is already a few months ago has had a little upgrade, resulting in received Intel Kaby Lake, so changes it is almost not touched (the main news — there was a 4K display), which is not true of the older model.
HP Spectre x360 15 significantly changed. Of course, disappeared processors Intel Skylake — instead they are now Kaby Lake different series, up to Intel Core i7-7500U. But much more interesting is that now all configuration laptop equipped with a 4K display and a discrete graphics card. Alas, the laptop is not got GPU of the last generation, but Nvidia GeForce 940MX with 2GB of GDDR5 memory — decision any better built-in Intel HD Graphics 620.
The basic version of the HP Spectre x360 15 sample 2017 have 8 GB of RAM and SSD capacity of 256 GB, and top modification amounts of RAM and SSD are, respectively, 16 GB and 1 TB.
Interface connectors presented HDMI, USB 3.0 port and two USB-C, one of which is connected to the Thunderbolt interface 3. Optional equipment notebook is an infrared camera for login with Windows Hello and a digital pen N-Trig.
I wonder what hardware change slightly worsened mass-dimensional parameters of the laptop. So, case thickness increased by almost 2 mm (to 17.89 mm), and weight was 2 kg (compared to 1.8 kg from last year’s model). True, the battery capacity increased to 79.2 W·h Declared the autonomy of the device with this battery — 12 hours and 45 minutes.
Updated HP Spectre x360 15 will go on sale in February and will cost from $1350 (U.S.).
