HP has revealed a list of Intel Evo-certified laptop computers today, led by a 14-inch entry to the Spectre x360 lineup. With a 13.5-inch display, the brand-new flexible, convertible PC is somewhat bigger than the other devices in the series. It’s the very first Spectre x360 to use a 3:2 element ratio, which HP states offers 20 percent more vertical watching area than the 16:9 ratio. Also, it’s the first in the series to include what the company calls its “all-in-one keyboard” that includes a power, a new electronic camera shutter, an HP Command Center and a mute mic button, in addition to a fingerprint reader. (It’s worth noting that HP used renewable products for the keyboard’s scissors.)
That it’s Evo-certified indicates the laptop-tablet device is powered by 11th-gen Intel Core processors, is quick adequate to wake from sleep in less than a second and supports quickly charging. Other significant features include WiFi 6 assistance and up to 17 hour of battery life. On the software side of things, the Spectre x360 14 comes with a Focus Mode that dims background apps not in usage for performance functions and a new setting called Auto Color, which instantly changes the screen’s color areas depending upon the content being seen. The Spectre x360 14 has an optional OLED display that brings a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio to the gadget and is available in Nightfall Black with Copper Luxe accents, Poseidon Blue with Pale Brass accents and Natural Silver.
