HP is kicking its CES 2018 off with a bang by announcing a refresh of its Spectre x360 15. But while it the refresh may appear to be pretty standard at first glance, the new Spectre x360 15 sets itself apart by being one of the first devices to take advantage of Intel's new Core processors with Radeon graphics on board.
The Spectre x360 15 can be equipped with Intel's eighth-generation Core i7 8705G processor with Radeon RX Vega M graphics. According to HP, this model offers up to 12 hours of battery life. If Radeon graphics aren't really your style, or you just want more battery life, HP is also offering the laptop with eighth-generation Core processors and NVIDIA GeForce MX 150 discrete graphics. This option will offer slightly longer estimated battery life of 13.5 hours, HP says. With either option, HP has included fast charging, so you can juice back up rather quickly.
Aside from the choice of processor and graphics, the Spectre x360 15 includes a 15.6-inch 4K display that can work in concert with the option HP Tilt Pen for inking. HP is mum on other hardware specs, but the current x360 15 includes options of up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage; we'd expect similar options with the new model. The laptop also includes Windows Hello support via the included IR camera and fingerprint reader.
According to HP, the new HP Spectre x360 15 is expected to go on sale at its website and at Best Buy on March 18, starting at a price of $1,369.99. For now, you can learn more at HP.
