HP Spectre 13 x360 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8550U 1.8Ghz 256GB SSD 8GB RAM 13 Inch Touch Backlit Win 10
HP’s Spectre 13 was designed for tablet lovers who don’t buy tablets. It’s a lightweight though sturdy ultrabook designed with a powerful Intel 8th-generation Core chip inside and an eye toward the future. HP’s stylish Spectre offers excellent performance for an ultrabook at a good price, making this a recommended choice.
At a light 2.4 pounds, though, the Spectre 13 is forced to make some compromises. It falls short of the “all-day” battery life that some demand, delivering about six hours in our tests. HP probably dialed down the display resolution to preserve battery life, too, so the Spectre includes a 1080p touchscreen display. The Spectre 13 also commits wholeheartedly to USB-C/Thunderbolt. You’ll need a dongle if you own older peripherals.
