Shopping for a new laptop? Need something Daniel Rubino once called "awesome sauce"? Well, then it's time to get the HP Spectre x360 13.5-inch touchscreen laptop on sale for $1,529.99 at Best Buy.

The laptop is powered by an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, and a 1TB solid state drive with 32GB Intel Optane Memory. It's part of the Intel Evo platform, which means it's got a great design with a long-lasting battery, a fast charge, Thunderbolt 4 ports, Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, and more.
When a laptop is a part of the Intel Evo platform, that means it has hit the mark on several indcators that Intel considers key to the average consumer experience. The laptop is going to be responsive, fast, and built with the sort of features that keep it that way. The Spectre x360 is no exception thanks in part to a long-lasting battery that also has Fast Charging so you can get it up and running even when it runs low.
Another key to the Evo platform is the use of the 11th-generation processors, and this machine has an Intel Core i7 with integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics, 16GB RAM, and a 1TB PCI-e solid state drive. It also has 32GB Intel Optane Memory that is reserved to make your most important applications run at lightning speeds.
There's also a beautiful 13.5-inch touchscreen display that has a pixel resolution of 3000 x 2000 and uses an OLED panel for the best colors. Since this is a 2-in-1 laptop, you can even flip it around and use the screen like it's a tablet.
Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0. There are also two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports with super fast transfer speeds. The laptop comes with Windows 10, but you'll be able to upgrade to Windows 11 for free eventually.
The HP Spectre x360 laptop is as good as it gets, and at this price it's worth the investment.
