    Ergonomic Workhorse

    This PC was purchased for my work in commercial wireless network design, to run Ekahau Site Survey and the MS Office suite. Ekahau Site Survey is a very powerful surveying and planning tool for use in planning and evaluating large wireless networks. I've done warehouses up to 750,000 square feet with it, as well as factories, office buildings, schools, medical facilities, and so on. It uses data collections via multiple Network Interface Cards to build a database, and advanced mathematics to show available coverage in a surveyed building. It can also place Access Points in a subject facility, which is even more compute intensive. I've been using an i5-based Ultrabook, since it is light and easy to handle, but it's gotten some years behind it, so it was time to look at upgrades. This PC will calculate coverage maps and create reports in about half the time it took to do the same with the previous PC. It is lighter, and has better graphics. It also computes predictive placement of APs similarly fast. The only downside is that it is too "pretty" to take into some of the hostile environments I survey. For that, I'll keep the old, less glamorous Ultrabook, but I'll take the collection of data from the older laptop (using a USB flash drive) and map/report it on the Spectre x360. It looks to be an excellent acquisition. Battery life is good. I use a "slice" battery on the Ultrabook, which nearly doubles its weight to about 2.5 kg. With that, I can survey for an eight hour day and have 30-35% of total battery remaining. The Spectre x360 looks as if it is going to have similar run time, without the external battery. Time will tell, but if I can survey for six hours on a charge, it will be excellent. And I've neared that with over 40% battery remaining so far.

    This is everything I dreamed for. Windows "Hello" signs me in in a second. The look and build are solid for such a thin, lightweight laptop. The screen brightness does not hurt my eyes. The system is very fast. The touch screen is very responsive, the keyboard feels great. The only thing I would say I'm not 100% happy with is the way the mousepad feels upon clicking it... a very small issue. There's nothing wrong with it, I just personally don't like it. Also, one single incident got me worried. I've had it for two months, and only once has the fan started up, pretty loud since it's usually completely silent, and it sounded like the fan was working very hard. So I let it sleep. That happened at the end of two months, just recently, and it hasn't happened again. So, time will tell how the system holds up. Overall, it is a great purchase and I absolutely love it.

    I purchased thjs one after my initial purchase had a battery issue which caused a return. How can I praise this laptop as it deserves? I took it home and immediately installed Mint LInux on it, and this laptop works like a charm. HP products are very Linux friendly, just remember to turn on Legacy Boot in bios first. The screen is sharp, bright, and looks great. The weight is perfect for taking with me to get work done at outside locations. The laptop has a good amount of RAM, the SSD is snappy, and boots Linux Mint quickly. While not a gaming machine, it does ok for the occasional game of Civilization V. One of my absolute favorite parts is the USB-C charging. All laptops need to do this IMO. The thunderbolt ports are fast, and with a dongle can be attached to my Ethernet connection at full speed of the Thunderbolt port. Highly recommended.

    I purchased this as a back up to my main desktop computer and it is a great product. Attractive, lightweight , beautiful screen and very fast. Nice backlit keyboard with a good feel to it while typing. I use a compact mouse and only rarely use the keypad, but that seems to work ok. We take it on our vacations and upload photos daily. I purchased a universal hub for the type "C"port that does just about everything with 3 extra usb ports, hdmi port and slots for camera and phone sd cards. I would recommend that you do the same. Came with pen which works great and a sleeve which I replaced with a briefcase type with multiple pockets, etc. This computer is a very good product. It would be perfect with a few more ports, but I solved that problem with the universal hub.

    I use this laptop everyday in class and the battery lasts all day without charging. It acts like a notebook for me while taking notes with the stylus pen in tablet mode so that’s the reason why I’m in love with this laptop. BUT... The color is suppose to be dark ash silver and it has this purple tone which bothers me a bit just because I prefer a neutral color. Only one USB port.. gets kind of inconvenient when I’m using my wireless mouse and wanting to plug in my flash drive at the same time. Understandable since it’s a thinner laptop and it’s light weight so other than that still very satisfied with my purchase. I’m giving it 5 stars cause now I can’t live without it. Haha

    High Performance Laptop

    This laptop is very powerful, fast, light. Beautiful. The dual core i7 has no problem running a video, opening a spreadsheet and surfing the web. The quad core i7 is only slightly faster in some cases. I recommend staying with the dual core. I upgraded to Win 10 Pro which gives it the ability to connect to a corporate network. I also have enabled virtualization. The screen is sharp and clear. I ran a 4k test video and it ran with no problems. The pen writes perfectly. This is a great laptop for home use, school or to use as a small business professional laptop. There is no need to spend more money. This comes at a great price.

    I could not be happier with this computer

    I am a writer and a long-time laptop user, I have had HP in the past, but my last computer was a Surface Pro 2. Although I liked the Surface for many reasons . . . it was too small and next to impossible to get it repaired or get help, short of sending it to the manufacturer. I purchased HP Spectre 360 - 13 because I needed a laptop that was very portable, small and easy to carry so that i could work when i travel. The Spectre does not have the deficiencies I found with my previous computer and I can easily get it repaired if necessary. I spend a lot of time doing research and writing on my computer and so far, it is easier to use and I could not be happier with my decision to purchase the Spectre.

    I purchased my computer at the beginning of this year and it has been great! I wasn't a fan of the new Windows so I was a bit hesitant to purchase another laptop with Windows; however, my old laptop was an HP and it lasted a good solid 7 years! So, after doing research and reading reviews I decided to stick with HP. I mainly use it for school and internet research, with the occasional Netflix movies and TV series. It's lightweight and portable; the battery life is great (though I haven't really tested how long it will last on a full charge); it's quiet; and it starts up really quick. I really don't have any complaints about this computer. It was a solid buy for me.

    Incredible laptop

    The laptop is really fast, quite an upgrade from my Surface Pro 3. Pros: - Looks, quality and feel - Specs. - Size and weight. - Battery life. It lasts for like 8hs Cons: - Synaptics trackpad. I changed the drivers for windows precision and it's a huge improvement - HP Pen. I'm using a Surface Pro 4 Pen, which is compatyible and it's a lot better. - Screen aspect ratio. I got used to the 3:2 aspect of my SP3, which is a lot better for productivity. The 1920x1080 resolution is ok, but you will notice it if you're coming from a higer resolution device. Other than that, this laptop is a beast.

    After several months of research, I was stuck between a Apple pro, Microsoft and a HP Spectre. Multiple visits to best buy store, conversations and questions with store associates. I chose a HP spectre and I have no regrets. sleek smooth design. 8Gb speed and 256Gb flash drive. its enough to power through grad school and still keep you as a professional. The future hardware ability I cannot vouch, but the present status is a perfecto.

    This laptop was much better than I had expected, I recommend seeing it in store, you too will be surprised at the quality of materials. The windows hello camera makes sign in a snap, and the included active pen works excellently. You get great battery life, multi-touch screen, 2-in-1 capabilities, in a laptop that is no slouch when it comes to processing tasks due to the core i7 on board. Try it, you will like it! And it regularly goes on sale, so keep an eye out!

    Got this laptop after doing a fair amount of research. The display is nice and the boot times are impressive. The windows ink feature with the specs of this model (new model already available) made it a better option than the surface/surface laptop. The fan is noticeable when under heavy load but not obnoxious. Very happy with this purchase and definitely recommend.

    After a long research between Apple, Microsoft, Lenovo, Dell and even Google Pixelbook laptops - HP X360 is the BEST possible solution for any business person. HP was able to get everything that you need for everyday use into one super light, portable and powerful machine. STRONGLY recommend to anyone!!!

    I read the reviews for this lap top and dell. Went to Best Buy to look at them. Chose this one - it was a great price and has touch screen. I wasn’t in the market for touch screen. Once I tried it I was hooked! Best thing ever. If you occasionally use an iPad or any touch screen device a touch screen lap top is a must. I strongly recommend it!

    This is an amazing laptop, it’s fast and very light. The Windows ink feature works wonderfully and is very helpful when looking at documents. By far the best laptop I’ve ever owned and it’s the perfect laptop for a new college student. The only issue I noticed with it is that it gets a little warm when you’re running multiple programs at once.

    This is a beautiful laptop, with a compact but full HD screen and a full-size keyboard. I wish there could be a number pad but there just isn't room on a machine this size. I really appreciate the small size and the ease of portability. If you want to get full use of the three ports be prepared to buy some extra adapters - they're not all USB Type A.

    First off, the look of this laptop is stunning. Then the performance is very fast, quiet, and able to actually be used on a lap it is not hot. I haven't stress tested battery life, but I anticipate around 8 hours or so, which is great. Screen is super clear, colors vivid, and just a huge upgrade for me.

    I got this for my business since our equipment is compatible with only Windows machine, even though I am a die hard Apple user. I am pretty impressed with the quality. It took me a while to get used to it but I am happy with it totally. My favorite part is that it's a touch panel screen, which I had no idea about. It was a pleasant surprise.

    Light weight, quick start up and easy to use. Love the different capabilities it has from laptop mode to tablet mode to tent mode, the use of a pen when needed and access to the app store. By far the best feature is how quiet it is and the fact it doesn't get vary hot; plus it has plenty of storage for all my photos and videos.

    This laptop is a vast improvement over the older, much heavier Dell laptop I had. It was a snap to set up and has been trouble-free ever since. Other features that make it a worthwhile purchase are the backlit keyboard, easy touchscreen, graphic display, and the pen that was included.
