HP Spectre x360 13 unboxing and first impressions

HP's new Spectre x360 is one of the sexiest portable PCs on the market, and that's due to some big design changes. As you can see from the image above, the angular design that used to be exclusive to the rear of the PC now wraps around the whole thing and it looks great.

Also, the corners are now flat, with the left one sporting the power button and the right one including a Thunderbolt 3 port. This provides a unique solution to a common problem, which is power cables getting in the way. Most PCs in this form factor have their power ports either on the left or the right side, so depending on if you're left- or right-handed, that cable could get in the way.

There's also a switch on the side of the machine for a privacy camera. But rather than putting in a physical block, the switch just disconnects the camera. You can see this by opening up the Device Manager, and when the switch is turned off, you can't even see the camera is there.
