When you first get a hold of the HP Specter x360 laptop, you are surprised by the thin, lightweight design of the top 2-in-1 laptop from the company.
The device, which can also be folded into a tablet, is the thinnest HP convertible yet and is the successor to the popular Specter notebook from last year.
But once it gets dirty with the device, the slim and quality - cut design of a solid - arguably aluminum block plays second violin to the impressive specifications and product functionality.
It is true that I have owned and used an Apple Macbook for so long that I always feel a little lost change to explore in the Windows operating system.
And with a price tag of $ 2,499, I would have to do a lot to become permanently - but it certainly gives a red hot go.
The laptop is only 13.8 mm thick and the tips of the scales in a measly 1,295 kg.
What the company is calling a "micro edge bezel" has been shaved about 2cm on each side of the screen, packing more punch in the high-definition 13.3-inch high-definition touchscreen.
However, after experimenting with positioning the camera face to face, HP opted not to do the same with the lower and upper edge bezel, which means that it could hold the camera in the desired position and leave the wireless antenna in The top of the screen for better performance Wi-Fi.
Meanwhile, the Specter x360 is the most consumer-focused offering and marketed in creative and business types that want to meet all of your work and entertainment needs with just one device.
It comes with the Windows 10 operating system, which of course features the Microsoft AI assistant, Cortana.
It also comes with a digitizer pen that can be used in creative applications, edit documents or draw on maps. This is definitely an area where the Specter x360 eclipses the Macbook Pro, which does not even have a touch screen or inking system.
With four built-in Bang & Olufsen speakers looking in different directions, the laptop produces consistent and good quality audio.
The keyboard was a great focus for HP with the new device, but the company understands not to mess too much with the keyboard arrangement of its predecessor.
Great attention to design results on a comfortable and solid keyboard that is backlit, allowing you to work in any light condition and sits next to a very nice glass trackpad.
Under the hood and the laptop is powered by Intel's seventh-generation Core processor and the device has room for up to 16GB of RAM.
It has two USB-C lightning ports for charging and data, plus an inherited USB 3.0 port that will surely make life a bit more convenient for anyone.
It has kept the headset jack but missing an SD card slot or micro SD card slot that may disappoint some users. The Specter x360 also comes with a USB-C to HDMI adapter.
The battery life has been improved, allowing users up to 15 hours per charge while working with Wi-Fi enabled, but the display brightness is set to the minimum.
I was able to use the laptop for days before requiring a charge.
Since it is marketed to the busy professional, HP has ensured that it can be loaded quickly anywhere. The device includes "HP Fast Charge" technology, which means that 50% of the computer's battery will charge in 30 minutes.
With the price of $ 2,499, it may be difficult for some Apple Macbook-philes to be convinced to make the change. But for the less obstinate among us, a device like the HP Specter x360 is a worthy investment and offers plenty of potential and versatility.
