HP has started off 2015 with a bang, announcing its new 13.3-inch Spectre x360 convertible laptop, with the aforementioned 13.3-inch display rocking a QHD resolution of 2560x1440, which also happens to feature Panel Self-Refresh technology, which lets the laptop power down when the display is not changing.
There will be two models of the Spectre x360 released, with one bumping the 13.3-inch screen down to 1920x1080 touch-capable display, while the higher-end model features the QHD panel. There are also two choices when it comes to the processor, with HP offering up the Intel Broadwell-ULT-based Core i5-5200U and Core i7-5500U. The Core i5-5200U is a dual-core part with HT enabled at 2.2GHz or 2.7GHz with Turbo Boost, while the Core i7-5500U is also a dual-core part with HT at 2.4GHz, or 3GHz with Turbo. HP has provided just 4-8GB of DDR3 RAM on the Spectre x360, while storage options range from a 128GB SSD up to 512GB.
HP has priced the Spectre x360 competitively, with the starting price of just $900 for the Core i5 model with 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD and 1080p touchscreen. HP will offer up the Core i7 model with 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD and the same 1080p touchscreen for $1150, while the best model will feature the Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, 512GB of SSD and the QHD touchscreen for $1400.
The new HP Spectre x360 is available right now on HP's website, and through Best Buy starting on March 15.
