Tired of macOS Catalina already? Tired of paying the Apple Tax for hardware that lasts a decade? Sam Rutherford details HP’s new Mac notebook killer, the Spectre X360 13.
HP has reduced the x360’s top and bottom bezels by more than 50 percent. Not only does this get rid of the massive chin found on the previous Spectre x360 13 and allow for a superb screen-to-body ratio of just over 90 percent, it also meant HP could reduce the size of the Spectre’s chassis, resulting in a body that’s almost an inch shorter from front to back (0.9 inches or 23mm shorter to be exact).
Smaller, thinner, lighter, and faster. Priced like a Mac. Anything better than a Mac?
I love how HP installed one USB-C port on the tiny diagonal section on the back right of the laptop. It’s the perfect position for plugging the Spectre in to recharge while still keeping cables out of the way. Same goes for the power button on the back left of the machine, which is easy to reach in both laptop and tablet modes, but in such a way that you practically never press it accidentally.
Apple gets stuck in its own universe sometimes and forgets that users like clever features.
