    I needed a laptop for photo editing. I'm on a budget, so I got rid of my chromebook and tablet to get this laptop. Sure there were cheaper options but this laptop caught my attention from the looks alone. After a little research, the specs were more than enough for me and it should be for a while. I love how fast it boots up and I'm able to log in with face detection. The battery lasts longer than I expected. Although it says the screen size is 15 inches, this laptop does not feel or looks that big at all. It's not small by any means, but the size is just right. The touch screen is very smooth and responsive. It's very quiet until the fans kick on, but they're not loud or annoying. I also like the stylus pen that is included. The pen includes a charging cable. The screen is very nice. It makes photo editing a lot easier now. It's not super bright, but it's bright enough. The only negative thing is there aren't enough ports, I would have liked more. I purchased this laptop and a couple of weeks later it went on sale. Best Buy returned me the difference without any problems, very fast.

    Pros mentioned:
    Display, Pen

    I've been waiting for this laptop for a while and it did not disappoint. I have not had the chance to explore all of the functions. That being said, it is a major step up from my previous laptop. While waiting for its release I watched several YouTube reviews and it lives up to their reviews. Just the unboxing was pretty impressive. It is extremely secured within the box and nice packaging. One reviewer complained about the pen and not having a place for it. Well the pen has a magnet and can stick to the frame when not in use, so that issue is resolved and it comes with a leather laptop sleeve with a slot for the pen. Screen is nice, tight and crisp (no wiggle and very clear image) and keyboard is nice and responsive although a little small for my big hands. Overall, the size is amazing how they crammed all that technology in such a small device. I even used it while connected to a second monitor to test the battery life and I was able to use it for 2 days with normal usage (coding, watching youtube, email, MS Office while using 2 monitors) before it asked me to plug it in I'm still exploring it but so far so good. My only gripe so far is that it is expensive...but I knew that before I bought it.

    I was in the market for a new laptop and was very interested in the Surface Laptop 3. I couldn't reconcile the price for the color I wanted for the features and specs offered. This Spectre x360 was on sale for $50 more and was a complete no brainer. Twice as much ram, faster CPU, dedicated GPU, twice the storage, bigger & higher resolution screen. Enough said. Build quality on the laptop I received is great. The B&O sound is great. 4K IPS screen is bright and lovely to look at. Runs cool and quiet. Have seen up to 1.2 GBps on the wifi connection. Zero complaints. The added pen and carrying sleeve are worthy of a mention too. The pen costs extra on the Surface. Battery life has been great. Anywhere between 8 and 10 hours doing work with 50-60% brightness. The keyboard is one of my favorites I've had so far on a laptop. Good backlighting. Good travel. Backlight turns off after about 30 seconds which makes for a nicer viewing experience in the dark. The trackpad is a precision trackpad that I've had no issues with. Some have complained about the size but I've not had any issues with the size of this trackpad. I personally don't like the giant trackpads on the Dells and MacBooks. The numpad is a bonus to me and a major selling point. Spreadsheets, calculations, or anything requiring you to type more than 2 or 3 numbers at a time is much more efficient. I would recommend it over the higher spec'd model as they tend to run much hotter and have the fan going a lot more. Both models otherwise have identical cooling solutions.

    I did a lot of research before choosing this machine. I knew the technical spec's inside and out. I knew it was capable of doing what I needed. I wasn't expecting the quality and design to be this nice. The frame is solid; doesn't bend or flex when it's picked up. This nicely but, metal, edges are beautiful. The sound quality is beyond anything I could've imagined, and that was just a bonus I wasn't looking for. I should've done an unboxing video for YouTube, it would've been right up there with watch the unboxing of a Cartier Love bracelet. If you're looking for quality and performance, this is the one.

    I bought this as an upgrade from my previous computer to do some 3D modeling and photo editing. I am not a pro at either one of these things but I wanted something that would handle these types of programs without spending too much. So far I am satisfied with this purchase based on this requirement. I like the sturdy construction of the laptop. It doesn't feel cheaply made and the battery life has been good.

    .... besides an average battery. If I were on the go a lot without outlets around and like my laptop on highest brightness, I'd probably look elsewhere. I use this mostly at home so it's fine by me. Everything besides getting used to Microsoft (personally annoying to me) after being a Mac user for years, is fine and without problems. The specs match the experience and very happy about that. If you did your homework then you know the specs are great in this laptop. So for me, just the average battery is a con for users relying on longer lasting batteries. I guess if you care about the camera quality then yeah it isn't the greatest either. Also with that, there's a tiny camera on/off switch on the right side. I didn't notice this until one day I was going nuts trying to figure out why my camera and it's hardware was gone. So just in case you can't connect to your camera, check to see if you switched it off by accident. Most of the other problems I've read in these reviews, I haven't had. My guess is they got lemons. As for BestBuy, my experience was great with the pick up. Thank you.

    Bought this after lots of research. Not intended to be my main computer, but I use it to work remotely away from the office and also to stream movies. So far I love it. Face recognition is fast and efficient, and so is fingerprint scan. Battery life is good but not outstanding. However, it charges really fast so it has not been a problem. Camera and microphone are clear for Zoom and related uses. The Alexa app is handy if you're already a Prime user. Linking to your account takes less than 90 seconds. Overall, very pleased with this purchase.

    I bought this HP Spectre to replace my aging Lenovo Yoga. I don't need the power of a gaming laptop, but I do run some resource-hungry business applications and the Spectre easily handles them. I really like the distinctive, luxurious looks of it. The rose gold colored accents are a nice touch and the matte aluminum case has a solid feel. Although 4K movies look amazing, I find that most applications work best when setting it to "half" resolution of 1920x1080. Otherwise, some icons and fonts are too small because not all apps respond properly even when setting the scaling to 200% or 250%. I don't often watch movies on my laptop, so I might could have saves some money on a 1080 screen, but it is nice to know I have 4K just in case I want to enjoy it. I would have given the Spectre a 5-star rating, but there are a few very minor things that I have to criticize. First of all, it is heavy. I know my previous Yoga had a smaller screen, but the extra pound of weight is very noticeable. The keyboard is a bit "cramped" feeling. instead of the numeric keypad, I would have preferred to have a larger alpha keys that are a bit more separated like a desktop keyboard. Overall, I am very happy with the Spectre and would recommend it. I did a good bit of research before buying it and it met all of my needs.

    The main purpose for buying this model was because of high demands on the graphics end for work. I constantly use Adobe Illustrator CC, MS PowerPoint (along with the other MS Office suite apps) and have multiple web browser tabs open at any given time. Even with several slideshows open, a couple of Illustrator files open, and several browser tabs, the system hasn't bogged down like my previous laptops had, even after they'd had extra memory and SSD storage added to them. So far, it's a solid machine that seems to be able to handle the demands I'm placing on it.

    This is a very good laptop. Set up was a breeze. I was hesitant prior to purchasing because of the reviews where some were saying the fan is too loud. Well folks, it is loud at first because it is downloading all the updates and configuring your set up all at the same times so YES it is loud due to initial set up. After that it is very quiet and super fast. I love the quality of the speakers and the ability to fold the laptop to be like an ipad. Good thing the laptop comes with an electronic pen so you can write or draw if you want. Battery life is very good and I just love the color and shape of this laptop. Overall I am happy with my purchase and can confidently recommend it to others.

    I moved from the 13" Dell XPS to the HP 15" Spectre and I'm never looking back. I loved my small XPS for a lot of different reasons, but the fact that Dell would not fix the startup issues was ridiculous, so it was time to move on. After a lot of research and with help from the Best Buy laptop guy, I chose the Spectre. It is better rated, HP actually works to fix glitches as they arise, and there was nothing comparable at the price. I thought I would struggle with the larger laptop, but I am loving it. The Spectre is such a great machine.

    So far, I have not found a single thing wrong with this device. I absolutely LOVE the size of it, and the functionality. I received a leather sleeve and an HP tilt pen with my purchase. The display looks amazing with the 4K. The looks, just tops it all off. I am in love with the brushed rose gold look on the sides. I am beyond satisfied with my purchase! I would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone.

    Only reviewing as an intermediate laptop user... this one has been great. Very fast with startup and maneuvering between programs. Highly recommended. She design is stylish and give a look of sophistication that i love. Track pad is large and very responsive, sometimes gets in the way when im typing but I have big hands as well. Outside of laptop is prone to mild fingerprints and require frequent cleaning but it wasn't a deal breaker for me. Mild set up issues in the beginning but my last laptop was purchased over 6yrs ago, so just user errors made.

    Bought this on sale to replace my 5 year old XPS13. The laptop itself is very aesthetically pleasing with good specs and storage that will be sufficient for most purposes. The graphics card is on the lower end so do not expect to do any serious gaming on this device, but it is good enough for running programs like Inventor. I also really like having the number pad as well. My only complaints would be that the computer can sometimes run hot and the fans can be slightly loud. Also this computer has blue screened on me twice for almost no reason, but I'm hoping its really nothing too serious. Overall I do like this laptop and hoping it will last a few years.

    This is a replacement laptop from my 13". It feels sturdy and not too flimsy. The pen is pretty accurate as well. I didnt think there would be a big difference between the 13" and 15.6" but there is a big difference between the two and that comfort is up to preference. I've had the 13" spectre , 14"ROG/G14, 15.6"spectre and Omen as well as a 17"ROG. From my experience if you have lugged around a 17" or another 15" then this one is perfect and "feels" like a laptop whereas the 13" was a big tablet. (ie; Galaxy Tablet) My wife was able to play WoW classic on both as well.

    Bought this laptop to use for basic laptop needs. Only issue is the overheating when I play the sims. The fans blow really hot air on the sides, I use a regular mouse, it burns the side of my hand . So if you want to play games, I recommend you purchase a cooling fan for the bottom.

    Computer is sleek and quick to respond. Picture is sharp with bright colors. Just used as a laptop and not a movie platform but it meets my expectations very well. Do not care for touch screen feature myself but can appreciate the capability for those who like that.
