PHANTOM OFF THE OPERA. Once in a while, there comes a personal computer that paints a picture of what the future can look like. This year, that picture comes courtesy of the HP Spectre x360
First and foremost, while the Spectre flies the Hewlett-Packard banner, it was designed in close collaboration with engineers from Microsoft. The end result is a smart-looking laptop with an incredible display and even better performance. The only gripe one could have with the Spectre is that it’s a tad heavy, which is especially noticeable when the screen is folded back into tablet mode. But other than that, the HP Spectre x360 is one solid machine with a price tag that basically undercuts any and all of its contemporaries.
