    OK Laptop for Light Office Tasks

    Overall I give the HP 13" Spectre x360 13-ap0013dx Laptop/Tablet a 3 out of 5 rating. Based upon my usage of using this device as a mini-laptop performance was average at best. I had to set-up my Windows 10 account as I have on my desktop computer so I could share documents via the cloud. I did find the keyboard layout easy to navigate and like the tactile feel of the keys to include their back lighting to allow for easier typing in dimly lit rooms. I did find the need to increase the magnification of the screen at times to 125% and greater to reduce eye strain when working on lengthy Word and Excel documents. Upon closing the notebook in reverse turns it into a tablet and allows for use of its stylus to write/draw on its screen. Personally I am a daily user of a 10.1" Android tablet and find using this HP as a tablet has it's short comings on the Microsoft Store. Other Android or IOS platform users may be too reluctant to purchase a Windows based laptop/tablet as all their apps sync between their Adriod/IOS phones and Android/IOS tablets. There are not many Windows based mobile phones with great specs on the market making this HP laptop/table an expensive proposition at $1,000+. Pros: Good for light use of Microsoft applications due to small screen size Great for web browsing in tablet mode Cons: Too small for heavy use of Microsoft applications Not an easy transition for faithful users of Android or IOS devices

    Not the best HP product I have owned

    I bought this unit intending to use it with a docking station and 2 20" monitors. Unfortunatey, the docking station Best Buy sold me limited me to use the tiny laptop screen and one 20" monitor. I then purchased the HP Spector docking station, only to be told by HP that the HP Spectre docking station does not work with the HP Spectre laptop. Finally got a docking station to work. This laptop might be nice with Windows 7, but 10 is a nightmare. smaller than usual keys are not help and the tough screen to so over sensitive that sometimes even hovering over a spot will activate a link without touching the screen. Battery life okay but not great. I have used HP desktops for years with out issue, but this laptop is my 4th and will not be buying another HP laptop.

    Not for Business

    The computer comes with Windows 10 for Home and not Windows 10 for Business. This has been a problem with the office set up overseas and has resulted in many hours of trying to make it work properly. The computer also has one port which limits the number of other devices one can connect. In terms of the appearance, overall functions and weight the computer is impressive. I would recommend it for use with the proper software.
