The HP Spectre x360 13 is still available but forget about it. The Spectre x360 14 is a stylish convertible laptop with a 13.5-inch display with a squarer 3:2 ratio, providing a better view of text and web pages than the earlier system’s 13.3-inch touch screen and recognizable 16:9 aspect ratio (starts at $1,299.99; $1,699.99 as tested). It communicates “I see you and raise” to the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1’s 16:10 display. The Spectre beats off the XPS 13 2-in-1 to become our new favourite premium convertible. Add to that some impeccable engineering, stunning OLED screen technology, a stylus pen, and a USB Type-A connector that the Dell is missing.
HP SPECTRE X360 14 – SPECS
The system is a tiny bit thicker and a tiny bit heavier than the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1, measuring 0.67 by 11.8 by 8.7 inches in comparison (2.95 versus 2.9 pounds). The 13.3-inch Asus ZenBook Flip S and the 14-inch Lenovo Yoga 9i are two hybrid laptops with screens with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Both measure 0.54 by 12 by 8.3 inches and 0.6 by 12.6 by 8.5 inches, respectively. Even though the screen bezels are incredibly tiny (90.33% screen-to-body ratio according to HP), the webcam is still placed correctly, above the display rather than below it.

Aspect ratios of 3:2 on displays are not unusual. The Acer Spin 713 is one of our favourite Chromebooks, and Microsoft utilizes them for its assortment of Surface Pro tablets and Surface Laptop clamshells. However, it’s challenging to switch back to a 16:9 screen after you get used to their about 20% taller perspective of browsers and productivity apps (unless you use your laptop primarily for watching videos).
I put the Spectre x360 14 against the previously mentioned Lenovo Yoga 9i, Asus ZenBook Flip S, and Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 for our benchmark comparisons. The HP Envy x360 13, our Editors’ Choice winner among mid priced convertibles, took the final spot. It’s AMD Ryzen 5 CPU replaces “Tiger Lake” Core i7 processors. The table below shows the basic specifications of the competitors.
|Processor||Intel Core i5 11th Gen|
By displaying a series of highly realistic, gaming style 3D visuals that highlight particles and lighting, 3DMark assesses relative graphics power. We do the Sky Diver and Fire Strike 3DMark subtests separately. Both benchmarks are for DirectX 11, although Sky Diver is better suited to laptops and midrange PCs, whilst Fire Strike is more challenging and lets high-end PCs and gaming rigs show off.
