Engadget Review

The Spectre x360 15t is a bigger version of the original x360 we reviewed last year. It brings the same well-constructed design as its smaller stablemate, along with a comfortable keyboard and a nearly bloatware-free Windows install. Because it's so thin and light for its size, it's a good pick for people who want more screen real estate (not to mention a 4K resolution option). It's a fine, well-rounded machine; just don't expect any performance gains over the smaller model. If you do indeed need some processing muscle to match those extra pixels, you'll need to look elsewhere.
