Expert review by : Brian Heater (mashable.com)

HP's 15-inch Spectre x360 is a huge 2-in-1 that is mighty impressive

 

Beautiful design ; Good battery ; Large, sharp display

Soft keyboard ; heavy for a tablet ; pricey

The 15-inch Spectre x360 is a solidly built, versatile machine that just might be the best 15-inch 2-in-1 around.

A big-screen Spectre x360 hybrid from HP (hands-on)

 

The Spectre x360 gets a 15-inch version, while the original 13-inch model goes OLED.

HP Spectre x360 15-ap012dx Convertible Review

 

4K UHD update. The recently released Spectre x360 15 is available in FHD and UHD display options. Are those smaller pixels really worth the extra cost? We compare the two models to see what drawbacks and benefits one may have over the other.

identical maximum brightness levels as the FHD SKU ; slightly more accurate colors out-of-the-box ; very crisp texts and images ; very minimal uneven backlight bleeding

reduced battery life compared to FHD SKU ; lower contrast

Should you purchase the costlier 4K UHD SKU over the less expensive FHD SKU? The advantages are obvious including sharper texts and images for potentially better multi-tasking. We're also relieved to see no major reductions in backlight brightness due...

HP Spectre x360 15 ap011dx Convertible Review

 

15-inch convertible done right. Smaller convertibles like the Yoga 900 tend to work very well due to the lighter and more portable form factor. Scaling up to a 15-inch screen size has proven difficult, but HP is the first to hit it out of the park.

strong performance under stress; no major throttling, relatively bright, high quality touchscreen with deep contrast, thin and sleek design with strong build quality, lightweight for a 15-inch notebook, relatively easy maintenance, USB Type-C 3.1 Gen....

weak GPU performance; no dedicated GPU options, still on the heavy side even for a 15-inch tablet, only one level of keyboard backlight brightness, display backlight not powerful enough to overcome direct sunlight, no secondary storage options,...

Our experience with 15-inch convertibles has been a mixed bag up until the launch of the Spectre x360 15. Both the Toshiba Satellite Radius 15 and Lenovo ThinkPad S5 Yoga 15 had a few redeeming qualities, but case quality and weight dragged them down...

HP Spectre x360 15 (Core i5 FHD) Review and Ratings

 

HP's top 2-in-1 is surprisingly sleek for a 15.6-inch convertible, but only $200 over this base model gets you more memory and CPU power and a superior screen.

Graceful, thin design ; Pleasing screen and keyboard ; Good battery life

Too hefty for tablet mode ; Wobbly touch screen

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a...

HP’s upsized 15-inch Spectre x360—a high quality device built for the mainstream

 

HP hits enlarge on its very pleasant 13-inch systems.

Great build. ; Both thin and light. ; Good battery life.

No Thunderbolt 3. ; An optional quad core processor or discrete GPU would greatly enhance the versatility. ; The keyboard and touchpad are decent, but not best in class.

In other performance aspects, the system was unexceptional, performing in much the same way as other Skylake systems using the U-series 15W processors. This decision by HP has its pros and cons. Compared to the XPS 15 we tested, which used a 35W...

HP Spectre x360 15"

 

If you really liked the very popular 13.3" HP Spectre x360 but want a larger display, HP heard you. Now there's a 15" model, and it's one of the few convertibles in this size. Like the smaller model, it works with HP's optional Active Stylus. It has...

Stunning design and very slim. Nice specs for the money, rare 15" convertible with pen capabilities

Keyboard markings are low contrast and hard to see in middling light. Less powerful than some premium 15" laptops

If you're in the market for a 15" convertible with pen, the HP Spectre x360 is one of your few choices. Even if you could care less about the pen, but want a convertible, or simply a very good looking laptop that's very slim and light with a big...

HP Spectre x360 15 (Core i7 4K) Review and Ratings

 

A 15.6-inch laptop/tablet convertible is bound to be big and clunky, right? Maybe not, if it has the DNA of HP's excellent 13.3-inch Spectre x360.

As slender and handsome as the 13.3-inch Spectre x360 ; Reasonable price for Core i7/16GB/4K configuration ; Good battery life

Big and heavy in tablet mode ; Wobbly touch screen

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a...

Extremely fragile

 

The screen on this unit is extremely fragile. Cracks from normal use. $700 replacement for parts only. Stay away

Fantastic laptop!

 

It took 7 seconds to boot with 512GB SSD and 16GB memory. Very stable and reliable laptop. I think this machine was assembled in China and shipped to my house in PA in just 3 days. Customer service was very helpful.
