HP Spectre x360 14
The Spectre x360 14 is the best 2-in-1 laptop ever. Recently released for2021-2022, the 13.5-inch model builds on its predecessors, but adds useful new features including a 3: 2 aspect ratio display and 11th generation Intel CPU with Iris Xe graphics. Highlights of this laptop include a stunning design, bright and vivid 1920 x 1280 pixel IPS and 3K2K OLED display options, epic 12+ hour battery life, and fast overall performance.
Add to that a generously sized touchpad that’s silky to the touch, as well as a comfortable (if shallow) keyboard, excellent security options (fingerprint sensor and facial recognition) and a good selection of ports, and well, it’s easy to see why I like this laptop so much.
We’d recommend buying the Spectre x360 14 over the Envy 13 if you have the money, especially if you need the flexible design. In fact, the Spectre x360 14 is the best laptop if you want a convertible laptop, period. Sure, it has some flaws, but those are easily forgotten once you get this beauty in your hands.
