The HP Spectre family of laptops are HP's premium tier, with a refined design and high-performance internals that balance power and battery life for improved portability. The latest series of HP Spectre x360 2-in-1 laptops pack in 10th-Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Plus Graphics or NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics processors. While plenty of the best accessories you could need for the HP Spectre x360 already come with the device, like a built-in camera killswitch and the HP Pen, you can still improve the HP Spectre experience with a few accessories. We've rounded up the ones we think will enhance your experience the most.

Light as a mouse: HP Z5000 wireless mouse

If you do a lot of word processing, you know how tricky it can be to quickly and precisely move the cursor with a trackpad. That's where this Bluetooth mouse from HP can come in handy. It won't take up any of the USB ports on your HP Spectre, and it has a low profile design. It even weighs less than a tenth of a pound, making it an easy travel companion when you're working on the go.

Audio fix: Bose QuietComfort 35 II wireless headphones

The latest HP Spectre may have gotten rid of its top-mounted speakers to cut down on its size, but you can still enjoy incredible audio with these headphones from Bose. They connect over Bluetooth, so you're cord-free, and they offer some of the best active noise cancellation available. Whether you're traveling on a flight or focusing at the office, these will let you hear the audio from your computer much more clearly than with the built-in speakers. If you forget to keep them charged up, you can still use them in wired mode.

Spreadsheet assistant: Lekvey Bluetooth numeric keypad

While the HP Spectre is ready to be a serious work machine, the lack of a numeric pad will hold it back in many office tasks. That's where this Bluetooth keypad comes in. It won't take up any ports, and it's low profile like the Spectre itself. When you're crunching numbers or working on spreadsheets, you'll be glad you have a numeric pad handy.

If we're making a suggestion

The HP Spectre can already do a lot on its own, but a few accessories help it become even more capable. The HP Thunderbolt dock does an awesome job of that with its ability to add a ton of extra connection options for the HP Spectre. For a thin-and-light laptop like the HP Spectre, a boost to connectivity is a big bonus.

Still, other accessories like the Samsung microSDXC card are a great way to expand on what HP is already offering without having to pay a ton extra to do so. The best accessories for the HP Spectre are the ones that can improve your experience in whatever way you use the device, and we're confident all the ones we've picked can do just that.
