During CES 2016 HP also introduced a new high end laptop hybrid, known as Spectre x360, that features a 4K display and a 15.6 inch diagonal. Previously, the Spectre model only had a 13.3 inch diagonal, which now gets an OLED version.
Back to the big one, the 15.6 unit comes with Intel Iris graphics, a 4K or Full HD display option and acoustics by Bang & Olufsen. It’s important to mention that the newcomer is the world’s thinnest and lightest 15.6 inch convertible yet. It comes with up to 16 GB of memory, quad front speakers, a CNC aluminum chassis and display cover, plus it weighs 4 pounds.
The thickness is 15.9 mm and the HP Spectre x360 also brings a 64.5 Whr battery, that should provide 13 hours of functioning on the Full HD model or 9.5 hours on the 4K one. Other specs include a 6th gen Intel Core i5 or i7 chipset, SSD up to 512 GB and a system that makes the display glide smoothly onto the case in either notebook mode, stand mode or tent mode.
This device packs 3 USB 3.0 ports, an USB Type C, HDMI and audio jack and it will be available from February 14th at HP.com and Best Buy with a starting price of $1,149.
