If you\u2019re searching the market for the best netbook and the best laptop, we have a suggestion for you: the HP Spectre X360 13 8th Gen. It does well being a chameleon-like laptop, with its fast quad-core Intel i7 for multitasking, and an Intel UHD Graphics 620 for some light gaming. It also has 16GB of RAM to back everything up.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Spectre X360-13 8th Gen\r\nThe HP Spectre X360 13 8th Gen has enough performance and features under the hood to be quite the well-rounded laptop, from an 8th Gen Intel CPU, to an Intel UHD Graphics 620 for light gaming.\r\n\r\nPower & Performance\r\nEven with the lesser model with the Intel Core i5, the HP Spectre X360 13 8th Gen has a far better CPU than the Dell Inspiron 11 3162, it\u2019s almost laughable. This particular model uses an Intel Core i7-8550U, a 4-core CPU clocking in at 1.8GHz and 4GHz when boosted. It even has an Intel UHD Graphics 620 and 16GB for some light gaming. Titles like League of Legends run on low-medium settings.\r\nBattery\r\nCompared to the Lenovo 300E, the new Spectre X360 has twice the length of battery life; it\u2019s a long battery life, for sure. You can pull up to 16 hours on a single charge. That leaves plenty of time to get work done.\r\nPorts & Expandability\r\nThere\u2019s a surprising number of security features, such as: fingerprint reader, IR camera, and a kill switch (song the right side). Depending on which model you have, the power button gets pushed near the back corner. Storage can be expanded via microSD card reader, but the RAM is on-board, so expanding isn\u2019t an option.\r\nBuild Quality\r\nIf you\u2019re lucky to have the HP Spectre X360 13 8th with the gem cut, aluminum body\u2014you\u2019ll get better durability. Other models use a combination of plastic and metal. Both are substantially stronger than the HP Chromebook 14.\r\nValue\r\nIt\u2019s tough to pinpoint where the HP Spectre X360 13 8th Gen lands in terms of value. On one hand, it has some great hardware (its CPU + GP). On the other hand, one version of the Macbook Pro has a better CPU and GPU for around the same price (give or take $100). At that point, it\u2019s down to preference. However, considering performance, features, and build quality, it\u2019s a rather nice package that no one would be disappointed having.\r\nSpectre X360-13 8th Gen Wrap Up\r\nWhat holds the HP Spectre X360 13 8th Gen back is price. But in return, you\u2019re getting a bevy of features, along with good hardware underneath. The 8th gen Intel Core i7 is still a great processor for working, and the Intel UHD Graphics 620 comes in handy when you want to relax with a lightweight game.
