HP made Spectre x360 thicker
Today it is not hard to predict how companies will design their new products. Many device manufacturers now offer their new products in a thinner body compared to their predecessors. In doing so, they also remove certain features. However, HP is out of this routine with their new laptop that they debuted at CES 2017. The new HP Spectre x360 with a 15.6-inch screen draws attention with its thicker body than its predecessor. But, HP added 3 more hours of battery life to the Spectre x360 while thickening the case.
It should be noted that the thickness difference between the new x360 and the old x360 is very small. The thickness of the laptop increased from 15.9 mm to 17.8 mm. According to HP’s statement, this change in the thickness increases the laptop battery by 23 percent. Despite its thickening, the Spectre x360’s width narrowed from 14.8 inches to 14 inches.
However, the growth of the size of the battery does not mean that the Spectre x360 has a very long battery life. HP will sell the 4K-resolution version of the x360 in 2017. This screen requires a great deal of power to work.
HP increases battery capacity and provides 12 hours and 45 minutes of battery life in total. The 2016 model Spectre X360 offered about 9.5 hours of battery life.
The new Spectre x360 comes with Intel’s Kaby Lake processors. The laptop is powered by the Core i7 processor and can be configured with up to 16 GB of RAM, up to 1 TB of SSD storage and with maximum the Nvidia GeForce 940MX graphics processor. The new x360 will be available for sale starting February 12 at $ 1278.
On the other hand, there are no major changes to the 13-inch model expect the new 7th generation processors and the new 4k display.
In addition to the new Spectre x360, the x360 version of the EliteBook introduced at CES last year also debuted at CES 2017. The new model is similar to the EliteBook introduced in the past year, but it differs by the way its screen can be rotated. Prepared for corporate users, the computer will be available for sale in January.
The new products introduced by HP are not limited to these. Announcing the new version of Sprout Pro for 3D modeling, the company also unveiled the 35-inch game monitor with the name Omen X 35 in addition to the 34-inch Envy monitor computer.
