Lisa Gade reviews the late 2020 - early 2021 HP Spectre x360 14, a redesign of HP’s premium Windows 2-in-1 laptop that keeps the gem cut design while switching to a 13.5” 3:2 aspect ratio display. The Ultrabook supports touch and the included HP active pen (MPP 2.0, aka N-Trig) and is available with Full HD+ IPS base display, a 1,000 nit Sure View Reflect privacy display and our OLED 3,000 x 2,000 display. It has Intel 11th gen processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics, a fingerprint scanner, an electronic webcam kill switch and B&O quad stereo speakers. It competes with the Microsoft Surface laptop and Surface Book, among others.

    I have it now. And now I understand how gentle Lisa was describing this privacy screen. I found it unusable. Even when your eyes are in the dead center of the screen, you see edges dimming. Move to any side, up or down, and the opposite edge goes dark. And that's with the privacy screen switch OFF! Also, HP decided that we don't need the "Insert" key. Instead we have hardware bloatware key called "HP Command Center". Next to a dedicated key for shutting the camera shutter. "cause there's so much unused keyboard estate. Finally, placing dark grey letter symbols on light grey keys? Why? Cause it looks better when those little hieroglyphs don't stand out?
    Otherwise a fantastic machine :)

    Billionaire Elon Musk, owner of electric car company Tesla and Space Exploration Technologies Corp SpaceX, has a grand vision for humanity. He calls it “Mars & Beyond: The road to making humanity multiplanetary.” Put simply, Musk wants to colonize Mars with humans. Regrettably for him, it’ll never work. There is nothing wrong with Planet Earth except for the people inhabiting it. So, if you carry into your new world the injurious element that is ruining your current world, what chances have you of building a sustainable colony on the new planet?

    If you want to succeed in your new home, you must make sure that everything you carry with you is helpful and beneficial. This means that the people who go there will have to be freed of the flaws that make humanity noxious to Planet Earth. But, if you can cure people from their harmful traits so they become beneficial to the environment rather than detrimental to it, what’s the point of taking them to a new planet? The whole idea of moving to Mars was because we ruined earth, but if you can fix the ruinous element in man, we will stop ruining Earth, the planet will heal, and there will be no need to move.

    Moreover, Earth is our home. We are made of it; it engendered us; and our bodies contain and need every element that exists on earth, even the most toxic. These elements don’t exist on Mars; survival will be a formidable challenge. In other words, not only are we taking with us the very cause of Earth’s problems—ourselves—we are creating countless new problems by placing ourselves in an environment that was not made to create and nurture humans.

    When astronauts return from missions on the International Space Station after a few months in space, their bodies need several more months under medical supervision to readjust to the conditions on Earth. The effects on the bodies of people who will travel to Mars for months, then live on it for years, if not for the rest of their lives, are anyone’s guess, but they will not be good.

    However you look at it, besides questionable prestige to the entrepreneur, there seems to be no sense at all in the project of colonizing Mars. If Musk wants to create an idyllic society in a secluded place, it would be much cheaper, easier, quicker to implement, and far less risky to simply buy a small, secluded island and populate it with the participants in his experiment. If they succeed, he will have all the prestige of the savior of humanity, who discovered the secret of turning human nature from evil and abusive to kind and inclusive. If he fails, people will simply go back home and all will be well. At the very least, Musk will be respected for trying.

    And finally, Musk recently announced that he would pay $100 million for the best carbon

    My only downfall with this laptop is that they should have NEVER... Had FIXED RAM! ......It would be nice in the future to be able to assign a proportion of SSD to work as ram! leaving us to go to unlimited ram! removing ram from laptops completely! And supposedly a newer version of this laptop has magnetic pen. but a tiny magnet from a iphoneCase can be glued to the pen (No prob) as the notebook is METAL!

    Convertible , 3:2 (or 16:10 but I prefer 3:2) tactile screen, Ryzen 4000 series, 16 GB RAM, fair price...what would you advise?

      This one is a space ship notepad/tablet... Very Good laptop ! after fully upgrading the ssd to 4tb (marvelous machine) plus the keyboard is a super fast for typing! if your more of the laptop person then get the larger size... but the little one is super nice and works well with tablet games! and create embroidery patterns draws super nice with the pen! I personally had been struggling with "Tracing photos" to create vectors file to ... even do avatar designs by pen! .... again for the issue with pens etc they need an algorithm still to ignore the palm of your hand when drawing to Only accept PEN input!...personally im amazed with this pen quality!

      @Marwa Salami : The dimensions are actually good for editing . the resolution of the screen is 3840, 2160 so it took a while to understand the scaling required for my personal use. it handles 4k well on cable or projection to other devices. i was worried about the low memory 16gb and i still have not entered the bios settings to see if its shared memory or not! .... my only unhappiness is the camera seems to be off center! for use with the animation rig i find you have to look into the light! ... but the pen work IS very very good! ... its very reactive and i have traced and digitized many artworks and comics .... for animation and cartooning artwork etc very very good! the debate is the size of the laptop to get as i have the notebook version basically just for travel but it beats the surface! if i did not worry about backpack space the big one would be super great! too! This laptop is futuristic!

    Any 2-in-1 convertible laptop MUST be less than 2.5lbs. Holding a 3lbs laptop like a tablet is just too heavy! The new HP Dragonfly G2 (~2.2lbs) and new Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Titanium Yoga (~2.5lbs) are the two class leading 2-in-1 convertibles.

    Hi Lisa, haven't upgraded in about ten years and I'm looking to get a 2 in 1 to be used for cosplay design and crafting. I'll be using blender often and a lot of drawing using programs like gimp and clip studio or photoshop. Also doing 3d printing. I was looking into the spectre x360 15 inch as well as the dell xps any suggestions. My daughter is an art student at scad and she as a desk top for 3d animation and game design but I don't think ill need something that powerful and I currently work full time and always on the go so that is why I'm looking to go the laptop route. Looking to spend about 1500 max. Thanks for all your great reviews.

I just ended up buying a MacBook Pro (w/ the M1) tonight, after considering the pros and cons of each laptop that I was interested in (XPS, Envy, Spectre, Yoga 9i, MacBook Pro). My conclusion came down to what I really wanted: - a long battery life - no overheating issues (such as no fans when I’m simply browsing the Internet) I heard that the new 14inch MacBook Pro is supposedly going to come out this year, however, I am in need of a good laptop right now and this is the best. What do you think?

      ...I myself am torn between waiting for the right Ryzen 5000 laptop and buying a laptop with an 11th generation Intel processor. But I am looking for a very specific set of features in the 13" to 14" size range... I have been looking for the right laptop for a year and have just decided to buy a the brand new 2021 HP Envy 14" laptop and also buy the Razer Book 13 (which @MobileTechReview has covered on this channel). I am in the fortunate position to have the money to try both, and then return the one I don't like as much. But if you're not in need of a new laptop then you might want to wait for this summer - there will be more AMD laptops available, and they may even have another small update to their processes that includes better built-in graphics capabilities.

      @Bates Yang - CES = Consumer Electronics Show. It is a big event every year for makers of laptops and tech gadgets to show off their latest products. As for AMD Ryzen processors: When you compare an AMD Ryzen 4000-series or 5000-series mobile CPU against an equivalent Intel mobile CPU, the Ryzen tends to run slightly cooler and draw less power for roughly the same performance. So Ryzen laptops tend to have slightly better battery life and are easier to keep cool (especially if they have a discrete graphics chip like an NVidia). However, right now AMD is trying to produce new CPUs, new graphics cards, *and* provide many of the components inside the new XBox an PlayStation 5. So Laptops with new AMD Ryzen 4000 or 5000 CPUs can be hard to find. But also remember that a laptop's performance is about more than the CPU. Its how all the parts work together - like the battery, the cooling system, the keyboard, and the screen/display quality. Some laptops look great on paper but are terrible in real life (the late 2019 or early 2020 MSI Prestige 14 is a great example of this: its specs and individual components are very impressive, but it actually functions poorly in the real world). This is why its so valuable to have Lisa Gade @MobileTechReview and others provide these kinds of detailed reviews of laptops!

      @Noel Wade Excuse me for the intrusion. I just was wondering what CES stands for and what it is. I’m thinking about getting this Spectre but heard that AMD Ryzen is better. What is your opinion - invest in this or wait for Ryzen laptops? And when will it come out?

      @Noel Wade It wasn't right before it though - this spectre was released over a month ago. I watched the new reviews for it at the start of december. Everyone had a review and I assumed MobileTechreivew did too -- they just happened to Not have a review

    I think it is a physical camera shudder. When I press the camera function key and press my ear to the camera it makes a noise (I am using the 2020 Spectre 14). I assume it works via electromagnets. Also if I try to toggle it very quickly it can't keep up. But regardless, loved the video as always, thank you!

    Love your reviews, I already bought this before the review so I'm glad to see confirmation that I was on the right track. I would add that the preliminary testing of TB4 to eGPU and Tigerlake is very positive (far better than expected) so I'm looking forward to one day pairing this laptop with an eGPU and an OLED TV on the desktop.

      It does not heat up. It’s cool . But sometimes if it’s plugged in on tablet mode it feels warm .. the fan will come on automatically when doing heavy graphics but swiftly turns off ... your think it’s a windows setting which automatically turns the fan on when compiling programs or rendering ...

      @Bates Yang I'm afraid I haven't really put this laptop through its paces yet. Partially because we're stuck at home and haven't untethered the laptop to test battery life (Covid related). I also haven't put the heating question through its paces yet either by running anything remotely demanding. Normally I would have had both answers rather quickly but these are strange times indeed.

      Hi Sydney. How is your experience with this laptop, especially in the areas of battery life and heating? I’m looking to get this laptop but also heard that this laptop tends to overheat.

    3:2 is even better than 16:10, it is the perfect middle aspect ratio in between 4:3 and 16:9

Good camera

    I have the 15.6 inch 4k core 7 16gb model with ssd. It made it through extreme heat and cold environments overseas with me flawlessly. Then right at two years old after I got back to the states, it would not charge and screen would not turn on even though it showed power on the machine. then would not charge eventually at all. Took it apart and it was the board that was malfunctioning. Decided was not worth it to fix it. Just kept the ram, ssd, screen, etc. Shame bc it was a good laptop.

    Lisa, would you mind to test and/or comment if the HP tilt pen tilt function is supported by HP via MPP 2.0, or rather via non-standard Bluetooth protocol which you have eluded to in the past (i.e., does tilt stop working if you turn off Bluetooth)? Does the width of the line drawn using the tilt function vary with the angle between the pen and the screen plane or the pen and the ground plane? I consider you the stylus review guru, greatly appreciated!

      It's standard MPP 2.0, no Bluetooth needed for tilt to work (yay!!).

    I love mine. I have the older one. It's about 3 years old now. Only thing I don't like is that the cd/dvd isn't built in. But to be expected with the thinness of it.

    Gem cut is, at best, questionable. I personally think its awful. Golden ratio has been debunked. How can they improve the contrast ratio of existing OLED? It's infinite!
