At CES 2017 last month, HP announced new variants of its Spectre x360 convertible laptops. Along with a refresh of its 15.6-inch line, there are also improved versions of the late 2016 13.3-inch model, which add an optional 4K display and pen support.
Those new 13.3-inch models are now available to purchase from Best Buy. Here are your options, all of which come with a bundled pen and a Core i7 processor:
- FHD display, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage ($1,199)
- FHD display, 16GB RAM, 512GB storage ($1,599)
- 4K UHD display, 16GB RAM, 512GB storage ($1,499)
The pricing does seem to be a bit off for the FHD model with 16GB of RAM. There doesn't seem to be any reason that it would cost more than the 4K variant.
We reviewed the late 2016 model of the Spectre x360 back in December, and were really impressed with it. In fact, the only negative sides to the device were that it doesn't support pen input, and it doesn't come in any configurations that have a display resolution of greater than 1080p. As you can see, both of those are the features that were added in the new model.
