Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Specter x360 14-ea0010nf
With its steel gray aluminum design with copper accents anodized and sandblasted finish, this 2-in-1 Ultrabook has an elegant, sober but also original appearance since it can open 360 ° and open to convert into a Tablet.
Because the screen can be opened to 360 ° and is adorned with multi-touch touch technology. Therefore, by simple pressures / gestures of at least one finger applied to the screen, one can interact with the system and the software. To protect it, the screen is covered with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass.
Due to its tactile aspect, the screen is treated brilliant. It therefore revives the colors but is subject to reflections in a bright environment (eg outside).
The screen is also distinguished by its 3: 2 format which will appeal to those who often work on long documents, because there is less need to scroll through the pages than with 16 / 9th. With its WUXGA definition, the screen lends itself well to displaying High Definition content. It also reproduces colors more faithfully than average while ensuring wide horizontal and wide viewing angles thanks to its 100% sRGB and IPS characteristics.
As a fingerprint reader is integrated, we can authenticate by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard can obviously be backlit, which is practical for distinguishing its keys in a dimly lit environment.
Connectivity side, it is reduced compared to the standard but conforms to what is expected in a 13-inch ultraportable. There are indeed 2 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4 (against 1 maximum usually), wireless modules Bluetooth 5 and Wi-Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely. , an audio port as well as 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 into it.
If you need an HDMI or Ethernet connection, you can use suitable adapters, such as USB-C to HDMI or USB-C to Ethernet or even USB-C to standard USB .
Performance, battery life of the HP Specter x360 14-ea0010nf
The HP Specter x360 14-ea0010nf is aimed at those who have a comfortable budget and are looking for a slim and light portable versatile ultraportable convertible into a Tablet.
It boasts a large capacity 1TB SSD storage that rivals hard drives worry-free. But compared to the latter, remember that an SSD is much faster while being more resistant to shocks, more energy efficient and much faster.
Concretely thanks to the SSD, we benefit from a much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than with a simple hard drive. This implies, for example, much faster software launches as well as processing and starts / stops, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Because we can play titles not too greedy in graphic resources but also watch photos and videos in this 2-in-1 Ultrabook, while it does not embed a dedicated graphics card.
But this hybrid ultraportable takes advantage of the Intel Iris Xe graphics part (tested by us) integrated into the processor, which is significantly more efficient than the classic Intel UHD 620.
The processor here is a low power Intel Tiger Lake i7-1165G7 Quad Core. It is coupled with a good amount of 16 GB RAM. The general performance provided by this Ultrabook convertible into a Tablet is thus able to suit a number of users.
However, it will be preferable to opt for a PC equipped with a non-low consumption processor and / or an appropriate dedicated graphics card if the objective is to often carry out heavy work in terms of processor and / or graphics resources.
Finally, regarding the battery life of this 2-in-1 hybrid Ultrabook convertible into a Tablet whose compactness, finesse and lightness facilitate transport, expect about 10 hours of battery operation in light use.
