Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Specter x360 13-aw0017nf
With its Blue Poseidon chassis, cover and CNC aluminum keyboard with aluminum stamping, it sports an elegant and discreet but also original design since it can be opened 360 ° to transform into a Tablet.
The screen takes advantage of multi-touch touch technology: by affixing at least one finger on it (or a stylus), by pressure / gestures, you can interact with the system and software.
Despite its announced anti-reflective treatment, due to its tactile aspect with Gorilla protective layer, the screen is brighter than non-tactile anti-reflective.
With its precise Full HD definition and 16: 9 format, the screen lends itself well to displaying High Definition content, especially videos. Thanks to its IPS technology, it offers more faithful colorimetry than the average as well as significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles. In addition, the screen has a much higher brightness than average.
Above the screen, there is a webcam that takes advantage of the Kill Switch function, a device to stop it and protect privacy.
It is an infrared webcam allowing authentication by facial recognition via Windows Hello technology which can also be used to authenticate by fingerprint recognition thanks to the integrated biometric reader.
A backlighting system is of course fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is useful for distinguishing its keys in dim light.
This 2-in-1 Ultrabook has an interesting connection for this type of machine with no less than 2 USB 3.1 Type-C Thunderbolt 3 (against 1 maximum usually and more often 0), Bluetooth 5 wireless modules and Wi -Fi ax ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, an audio port and 1 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is connected to it.
Some may however regret the absence of HDMI video output.
Performance, battery life of the HP Specter x360 13-aw0017nf
The HP Specter x360 13-aw0017nf is for those who are looking for a versatile portable laptop convertible into a thin and light tablet.
Thanks to its lightness, compactness and finesse, this hybrid Ultrabook convertible into a Tablet is easy to transport. It will appeal all the more to nomads because it offers an autonomy of about 10 hours on battery in light use.
To do this, this 2-in-1 Ultrabook relies on energy-efficient components and nevertheless delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users.
It is indeed built around a good amount of economical 16 GB RAM and a low-consumption Quad Core i7-1065G7 Ice Lake processor that we tested .
Keep in mind, however, that in order to carry out work requiring processor resources, it is better to opt for a PC based on a non-low-power processor.
In any case, the Core i7-1065G7 has the advantage of integrating within it the graphics solution Intel Iris Plus Graphics G7 which is positioned below the dedicated GeForce MX250 card. Therefore, you can of course watch photos and videos with this ultraportable convertible into a Tablet but also play titles that do not consume a lot of graphics resources.
Thanks to its fast SSD storage, this hybrid Ultrabook is also clearly more reactive and fluid in everyday life than if it were equipped with a simple hard drive. We thus benefit thanks to the SSD of start / stop and launch of much faster software but also of a faster arrival on the cards of online games for example.
There is indeed integrated an SSD which competes with hard disks in terms of capacity thanks to its 512 GB while being much faster, more energy efficient, more robust and silent.
And if 512 GB is too tight, you can always use an external storage unit like a USB 3.0 device to get fast transfers.
