Engadget Review

The redesigned Spectre x360 improves on the original with a lighter, more compact design, longer battery life, a Windows Hello webcam and faster disk speeds. However, those smaller dimensions mean a more crowded keyboard and fewer ports than last year. The touchpad needs fixing too, but at least HP can issue a software update for that. All in all, the Spectre x360 mostly succeeds as a flagship laptop, but it feels less well-rounded than the system it replaces.
