Nomadic with its 10-hour battery life, the versatile thin and light HP Specter x360 13-aw2000nf 2-in-1 Ultrabook convertible into a 13-inch Full HD IPS touchscreen tablet that can be opened at 360 ° takes advantage of a Quad Core i5 Tiger processor Lake with Iris Xe graphics solution for good performance in everyday use and the possibility of running games that are not too greedy. Thanks to its fast SSD storage, its responsiveness is enhanced. In addition, this ultraportable hybrid takes advantage of a biometric reader, an infrared webcam, a backlit chiclet keyboard or even a USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi ax connection, but bypassed on HDMI.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Specter x360 13-aw2000nf
It sports an elegant and original design with its Poseidon blue aluminum frame with pale brass accents anodized and sandblasted finish that can be opened at 360 ° to transform into a Tablet.
Multi-touch touchscreen technology is used on the screen. As a result, one can interact with the system and the software by simply placing at least one finger on the screen, and this by pressure / gesture.
Thanks to its touch technology, the screen is brilliant. As a result, it revives the colors but is subject to reflections in a bright environment (eg outside).
Good point, the screen is protected by a protective layer of Corning Gorilla Glass, which is appreciable.
Otherwise, the screen adopts 100% sRGB and IPS characteristics. As a result, the screen displays more faithful than average colors as well as large vertical and horizontal viewing angles. It is also very well suited to High Definition content such as videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format.
Positioned above the screen, the webcam has a shutdown device to protect privacy.
At the same time, it is adorned with Infrared technology, which allows itself to be authenticated on the system by facial recognition via Windows Hello technology.
Authentication by fingerprint recognition by Windows Hello is also possible with the integrated biometric reader.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit which is very practical to distinguish its keys in the event of reduced ambient light.
On the connectivity side, this 2-in-1 Ultrabook uses the big news offered in this area by Tiger Lake processors: 2 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4 (against 1 maximum in general and more often 0). Also part of the wireless Bluetooth 5 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, an audio port or even 1 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers carried out up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged in.
HDMI video output point, however, which may disappoint some.
Remember, however, that we can find adapters USB-C to HDMI or USB-C to Ethernet or even USB-C to standard USB .
Performance, battery life of the HP Specter x360 13-aw2000nf
The HP Specter x360 13-aw2000nf may be of interest to those who wish to equip themselves with a versatile portable thin and light portable PC convertible into a Tablet.
It stands out for its Tiger Lake Intel low-power Quad Core i5-1135G7 processor which, coupled with 8 GB of RAM, delivers good performance capable of satisfying many users.
Above all, the Quad Core i5-1135G7 houses the Intel Iris Xe graphics solution that we tested .
Concretely with this PC, although it does not have a dedicated graphics card, you can play titles that are not too greedy in graphic resources, but also of course watch photos and videos.
On the storage side, HP has chosen an SSD. Concretely thanks to the SSD, this thin and light 2-in-1 Ultrabook is much more responsive and fluid on a daily basis than with a simple hard drive. This implies much faster starts / stops just like processing and launching software / games.
With its 512 GB, the SSD here onboard offers a capacity of 512 GB, like the standard hard disks. However, this may be too fair for some. In this case, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device to obtain fast transfers.
Finally, thanks to its compactness, finesse and lightness, the transport of this hybrid Ultrabook convertible into a Tablet is facilitated. This will interest all the more nomads in terms of autonomy, we can expect about 10 hours of battery operation in light use.
