When it comes to the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday laptop deals this HP Spectre x360 16-inch (16t-f100) must be near the top. 

Normally costing $1,650, this new 2022 laptop is on sale for $1,050. But, if you add in coupon STOCKING10 during checkout, the price drops below $1,000 to just $935.

What’s the catch?

There isn’t one.

For this configuration, the Spectre ships with a gorgeous 16-inch, 3K+ (3072 x 1920), multitouch-enabled, IPS, Low Blue Light, 400 nit display. Yeah, it’s not full HD non-touch or some low-end spec. It also has razor thin bezels with a 91% screen-to-body-ratio. Hello!

HP's new 2022 16" convertible laptop has a drool-worthy 3K+ touch display, included pen, and a powerful H-series 12th Gen Core i7 processor. The audio is also insanely good as is the industry-leading 5MP webcam. 

The processor is no slouch either as it’s an Intel 12th Gen Core i7-12700H (4.7GHz) with a whopping 14 cores and 20 threads. That’s the “big boi” laptop processor denoting the 45W power usage and it’s usually found in workstations and gaming laptops.

But 8GB of RAM, right? Nope. It has 16GB LPDDR 4 and a fast and large 512GB PCIe SSD.

The one thing this model doesn’t have is a discrete GPU. Instead, you’re getting native Intel Iris Xe (you can configure this laptop with an Intel Arc A370M graphics card with 32GB of RAM if you want).

The uptick to Iris Xe graphics is two-fold: One, you get that sub $1,000 price, and two, you’re going to get better battery life. Basically, this is a laptop ideal for those who want a large, high-quality, high-resolution display, and an immensely powerful CPU. It should be great for photo editing, working in Microsoft Office, and definitely watching movies and videos.

One of the highlights, from personal experience, is also HP’s fantastic 5MP webcam, which is one of the best I have used. It’s sharp, has vibrant colors, can blur your background, and does HDR making this perfect for meetings and those who video conference often.

And the best part? This is an x360 laptop, so it can convert to a tablet for inking, and you do get the HP Rechargeable MPP2.0 Tilt Pen right in the box, so you can draw and take notes on day one.

For ports, you get all the good ones including two Thunderbolt 4, one Type-A, HDMI 2.1, a headphone/mic jack, and even a microSD card reader. There is also Bluetooth 5.2 and Intel Wi-Fi 6E, which is the latest and greatest.

There is also a massive 83WHr battery, so you should be good for most of the day.

Overall, this is one excellent-looking laptop and for $935 you are getting a lot of computer. Why believe me? I reviewed the higher-end version just a few months ago. Don’t pass this one up.
