HP Spectre x360 14 review: they did it again

Mark Coppock

“The HP Spectre x360 14 is the prettiest, smartest, and fastest convertible 2-in-1 you can buy.”
  • Attractive aesthetic
  • Very good productivity performance
  • Good to great battery life
  • Excellent haptic touchpad
  • Superb 120Hz OLED display
  • Superior audio quality
  • No discrete GPU option
  • A bit expensive

The HP Spectre x360 has, for many years, maintained a top spot for me as one of the best laptops. But over time, the design hasn’t changed all that much, with multiple years of small CPU bumps. All that’s changed with the new Spectre x360 14, though.

Specs and configurations

Design and ports, keyboard and touchpad, ai everywhere, performance, an excellent oled display and much-improved audio, meaningful improvements add up to a superior 2-in-1.

I was able to conduct an early review of the laptop, which made its debut at CES 2024 . Sporting a slightly larger display, a smoother aesthetic, and a new haptic feedback touchpad, there’s nothing here but improvements. Everything considered, HP’s Spectre x360 14 is going to be hard to beat in 2024.

  • Why the latest ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 8 isn’t worth the upgrade
  • HP Envy x360 13 vs. Dell XPS 13: the best tiny laptop?
  • Asus ZenBook S 13 Flip vs. HP Envy x360 13: it comes down to price

Pricing is still being finalized, but as of the writing of this review, the Spectre x360 14’s starting price is $1,650. Presumably, that’s for the entry-level configuration of an Intel Core Ultra 5 125H CPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. My review configuration with a Core Ultra 7 155H, 32GB of RAM, and a 2TB SSD is $1,970, which would be a very reasonable price for a heavily upgraded machine.

These prices are subject to change when the laptop starts rolling out, but unless they drop considerably, the Spectre x360 14 is solidly in premium laptop territory.

From a distance, the Spectre x360 14 looks a lot like its predecessor. Up close, though, it’s a different story. The notched display corners remain, with one housing a Thunderbolt 4 port and the other a 3.5mm audio jack, retaining the Spectre’s most iconic — and convenient — design element.

But the chassis edges have been smoothed out and now carry the same color as the rest of the chassis, specifically Nightfall black, Slate blue, or Sahara silver. Those changes create a more minimalist aesthetic that I find even more attractive than the previous generation. You won’t mistake the Spectre x360 14 for a MacBook Pro , but I think it looks just as good. The Spectre also looks great with the display open, with thin speaker grills flanking a spacious, off-color keyboard with bold lettering and a large haptic touchpad that takes up the available space on the palm rest.

The Spectre x360 14 also retains the line’s usual excellent build quality, with no bending, flexing, or twisting in the CNC-machined lid and chassis. The hinge isn’t quite as smooth as Apple’s or the dual-clutch version Dell uses on its XPS laptops, but then the Spectre x360 14 is a convertible 2-in-1 and requires a different mechanism to support the full 360-degree rotation.

Speaking of that, the bottom display bezel is larger to accommodate a 2-in-1’s flexibility, giving the Spectre a slightly less modern appearance.

Interestingly, despite boasting a display that’s half an inch larger, the new model is only slightly wider than the previous model. It’s equally deep and thin, and it weighs just a few ounces more. That makes it just as portable while offering significantly more screen real estate. The MacBook Pro 14 is around the same width and depth, but it’s thinner and heavier. That makes the MacBook Pro feel denser in hand.

Connectivity is OK for a 14-inch laptop, with a pair of Thunderbolt 4 ports and a single USB-A port to go with a 3.5mm audio jack. Some 14-inch laptops, like the MacBook Pro 14, also include an HDMI port, and the new Spectre drops the microSD card reader that was in the previous model. That’s disappointing. Wireless connectivity, though, is an improvement thanks to the laptop’s Meteor Lake chipset, with Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth 5.4 to go with Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3.

The Spectre x360 14’s keyboard has large keycaps and plenty of key spacing, and the switches are light and clicky. They feel less snappy than past versions, though, so I wasn’t quite as enamored with them. Apple’s Magic Keyboard remains the best, and I’d rank Dell’s XPS keyboard ahead of this one as well. It’s still a very good keyboard, just not as good as I remember.

In a move that’s just starting to gain momentum industrywide, HP has finally included a haptic touchpad on the Spectre. I’ve used a few haptic touchpads on other Windows laptops, and none have been as good as Apple’s Force Touch version. They’ve been less responsive with their fabricated clicks, and some have had issues holding onto clicks too long, causing an unnatural feel and inadvertent screen interactions.

The Spectre x360 14’s implementation, though, is almost as good as Apple’s. Surprisingly, it’s larger than the touchpad on the MacBook Pro 14, and it feels just as natural. In this regard, the Spectre is the first Windows laptop that rivals Apple. The only thing missing from HP’s touchpad is Apple’s Force Click feature, which provides a convenient means to quickly access additional functionality.

Of course, the Spectre x360 14 is a convertible 2-in-1, so it also has a touch display with active pen support. That sets it apart from any MacBook, and I miss it when using an Apple machine. HP’s pen support is excellent, and if you like to draw or take notes, then the Spectre x360 14 is a great platform — assuming you don’t mind holding onto a tablet that weighs more than 3 pounds.

AI is one of the hot topics of 2024 , and much is being made of the Neural Processing Unit (NPU) integrated into Meteor Lake to speed up various AI tasks. To date, just how AI will be used in our day-to-day computing hasn’t been fully explained, but HP gives a hint in its press materials, where it talks a good deal about how AI has improved several key aspects of the Spectre’s performance.

To begin with, HP has always offered some of the highest-resolution webcams, and they’ve bumped up the Spectre x360 14’s version from 5MP to 9MP with built-in, hardware-enabled lowlight adjustments. More than that, though, HP also touts AI-reduced power usage when Windows Studio Effects is utilized for better background blurring and automatic framing. The webcam and associated software worked well, but I couldn’t say it’s better than other non-AI incarnations.

The Spectre x360 14 also uses the NPU to drive its user presence-sensing technology. Thanks to the infrared camera that also supports Windows 11 Hello facial recognition, the Spectre can lock the laptop and put it to sleep when the user walks away and unlock and wake the laptop when the user returns. The screen can also dim when the user looks away from it.

AI is further used to enhance how performance, fan noise, and heat are optimized based on open apps, the Spectre’s physical placement, and how much battery life remains. HP even mentions AI in the context of automatically adjusting the display’s refresh rate from 48Hz to 120Hz.

It’s unclear how AI makes these features better than they’ve been on earlier models, but presumably, things are smoother and more responsive. That’s not something I could test, however.

HP also gives some other examples of how the NPU can be utilized, including faster generative AI performance in GIMP’s Stable Diffusion function and AI video editing using the Adobe Premiere Pro beta.

Perhaps most interesting was a reference to “Superpower,” a personal AI assistant that runs on the NPU and can perform actions like managing action items from a meeting, summarizing a topic, writing an email, and other tasks. I couldn’t test that functionality either, but clearly, AI will impact our computing in some unforeseen ways.

AI aside, Meteor Lake is also supposed to provide faster performance and better efficiency with a new architecture involving technical details that are beyond the scope of this review. I tested the Spectre with the Core Ultra 7 155H, a 28-watt CPU with 16 cores (six Performance, eight Efficient, and two Low Power Efficient) and 22 threads running at up to 4.8GHz. The laptop can also be configured with the Core Ultra 5 125H with 14 cores (four Performance, eight Efficient, and two LP Efficient) and 18 threads running at up to 4.5GHz.

Specs and architectures aside, my Spectre x360 14 review unit provided CPU-intensive performance that falls somewhere in between the 28-watt, 12-core Core i7-1360P and the 45-watt, 14-core Core i7-13700H. Looking at our database, the Spectre performs more closely to the Lenovo Yoga 9i Gen 8 with the Core i7-1360P than the Asus Zenbook 14X OLED with the Core i7-13700H. That is, it was around as fast as the Yoga in multi-core processes while being slower than both in single-core tasks. Notably, Apple’s M3 processor provides around the same multi-core performance, again with faster single-core performance.

I also ran the PugetBench Premiere Pro benchmark, which runs in a live version of Adobe’s Premiere Pro and can use the GPU to speed up various processes. I wouldn’t normally run that benchmark on this class of laptops, but I wanted to see how the Intel Arc graphics performed. On Meteor Lake, Arc is Intel’s newest integrated graphics, utilizing eight Intel Xe GPU cores and promising faster performance than the previous Intel Iris Xe graphics.

Unfortunately, the Spectre didn’t perform well, hitting just 258 in the benchmark. We haven’t run this version of PugetBench on any laptops with Intel Iris graphics, but the Acer Swift X 14 with a Core i7-13700H and the entry-level Nvidia RTX 4050 discrete GPU managed a score of 545. That’s right, the Spectre was just half as fast. Consider that the fastest laptop we’ve tested is the MacBook Pro 14 with the M3 Max, which managed a score of 889.

It’s still early, and it’s entirely possible that firmware updates will improve things. So far, though, Meteor Lake isn’t shaking up laptop performance — the Spectre x360 14 is a strong performer for demanding productivity use and unsuitable for anything but light creative work. It’s fast enough, just not a game-changer.

Note that I didn’t test gaming on the Spectre x360 14. My editor, Luke Larsen, covered gaming in his overview of Meteor Lake in the Acer Swift Go 14 . I did run the 3DMark Time Spy, though, where the Intel Arc graphics hit a score that’s improved over Intel Iris Xe, but less than half that of the RTX 4050.

That result and Luke’s experience means that while you can game a little better on the Spectre than on the previous model, the difference won’t be significant. The laptop’s going to let you run older titles, and you’ll need to turn the graphics all the way down if you want to run any modern games.

It’s also worth noting that HP doesn’t sell an option with discrete graphics. GPUs have always been a weakness of the Spectre series of laptops, and that’s also true here. Now that the Spectre x360 is in the 14-inch category, its lack of an option for something like an RTX 4050 is more apparent. Look at the new Dell XPS 14 , for example.

The next important question regarding Meteor Lake is battery life. Efficiency is the architecture’s stated goal, so I expected the Spectre x360 14 to achieve more longevity. The Spectre x360 14 has a 68-watt-hour battery, which is about average for 14-inch laptops, and it has a power-hungry 2.8K OLED display. So, there are factors to consider beyond the CPU by itself.

Considering everything, I’m at a loss to say whether the Core Ultra 7 155H is a particularly efficient processor. The Spectre hit eight hours in our web-browsing test and 18 hours in our video-looping test. The former is about average, while the latter is well above average. The previous-generation Spectre x360 13.5 with an OLED display and a lower-power 15-watt Intel Core i7-1255U hit 10 hours in the web-browsing test and 14 hours in the video-looping test. That machine wasn’t nearly as fast, however. And then we need to consider Apple’s MacBook Pro 14, which lasts closer to 18 hours in both tests with a very fast CPU and a mini-LED display.

We’ll have to wait to test more Meteor Lake laptops to draw meaningful conclusions. For now, suffice it to say that the Spectre x360 14 might last a full day of work, depending on how you’re using it. But I can’t say for sure.

There’s not much to say about the Spectre x360 14’s 2.8K OLED display that hasn’t been said about so many similar displays in the past. It looks incredible out of the box, with bright, dynamic colors and inky blacks. Watching high dynamic range (HDR) video is a treat, and it’s even better with content from Disney+ that supports the IMAX technology built into the Spectre. That provides unique aspect ratios and enhanced sound, and it works well.

My colorimeter agreed. The OLED panel is bright enough at 391 nits, well above our 300-nit threshold for working in bright indoor conditions. Blacks were perfectly black, with incredible contrast that’s beyond meaningful measurement. Colors were wide at 100% of sRGB, 97% of AdobeRGB, and 100% of DCI-P3, with excellent accuracy at a Delta-E of 0.68 (anything less than 1.0 is indistinguishable to the human eye).

In short, the display is sharp enough and offers superb image quality. It’s suitable for every kind of user, whether for productivity, creativity, or media consumption.

The Spectre x360 14 also features quad speakers with Poly audio tuning, including two upward-firing tweeters and two front-firing woofers. My standard for great audio has been Apple’s MacBook Pros, which use six speakers and force-cancelling subwoofers to produce loud, dynamic, and deep audio that no other laptop can match.

I can happily say that the Spectre comes surprisingly close, with plenty of distortion-free volume, crystal clear mids and highs, and more bass than any other 14-inch Windows laptop I’ve tested. It may not be quite as good as the MacBook Pro, but the Spectre pumps out excellent sound that will stop you from reaching for a pair of headphones.

There may be questions regarding the Meteor Lake chipset’s performance and efficiency, but that’s not to say that the Spectre x360 14 is a poor performer. It’s plenty fast for all but demanding creators and offers good to great battery life. Its display and audio are excellent, and the new design is attractive and functional.

There’s a lot to like about the Spectre x360 14, so I’m giving it a near-perfect rating as the best convertible 2-in-1 I’ve used. Perhaps HP will better tune the Meteor Lake chipset for improved performance and efficiency. And I question the real value of all the AI discussed in the marketing materials. But as it is, I can give the Spectre my strongest recommendation.

Mark Coppock

The rollout of Intel's highly anticipated discrete GPUs has been slow and confusing. But today, they just scored a big win with the announcement that HP's most premium laptop, the Spectre x360 16, will be sold with Intel's Arc instead of Nvidia's RTX graphics.

The new Spectre x360 16 comes with an option for an Arc A370M on board, in addition to an option for Iris Xe graphics for the $1,650 base configuration. The Arc A370M comes with 4GB of GDDR6 dedicated memory. That is on top of the 16GB or 32GB of onboard device RAM, as well as the up to 2TB NVMe solid-state drive on the device.

The 2-in-1 laptop is a flexible format that can work as a standard clamshell machine while offering optional (or primary) tablet functionality. Although not typically targeted at gaming, there are some 2-in-1s that do a good job of it, so if you want to game in your off hours, or want a portable laptop and tablet that can also play games, then buying the best 2-in-1 for gaming will set you up nicely.

There are a few types of 2-in-1s to pick from, including the detachable tablet, the 360-degree convertible, and the pull-forward design, but regardless of the type, the result is a laptop that doesn't constrain. Here are some 2-in-1 laptops that are great for gaming, as well as everything else.

It’s not often we see collectors' laptops like the Asus Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition. Announced at CES 2022, it’s an updated version of the already-released Zenbook 14X OLED, fit with new 12th-gen Intel processors and a more robust build -- but hardware isn’t what makes the Space Edition special.

The machine is inspired by Asus’s own P6300, which launched into space in 1997 and managed to stay outside the atmosphere for 600 days without any defects. It’s an homage, a celebration, and a retrospective on how far laptops have come.

The HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 has all the makings of being one of the best laptops for those looking for equal parts AI power and portability. Plus, it's pure eye candy, and I don't just mean the design — there's a 9MP camera on board that delivers great-looking images while keeping you in the frame while you move around.

As you'd expect, the HP Spectre X360 14 2-in-1 also packs Intel's latest Core Ultra chip, whose NPU is primed to deliver a range of useful AI experiences. You also get a vivid OLED display and Poly-tuned audio in a lightweight design. I went hands-on with the Spectre X360 14 2-in-1 ahead of CES 2024 , and it looks like a very impressive MacBook Pro 14-inch M3 alternative for the money. 

HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 Specs

Hp spectre x360 14 2-in-1: price and release date.

The HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 is available now at HP.com and Best Buy for a starting price of $1,499. We will report back on configuration options. By comparison, the MacBook Pro 14-inch with M3 chip starts at $1,599. 

HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1: Design and ports

For a 2-in-1 whose display flips around, the HP Spectre x360 is pretty compact and light. It measures 12.35 x 8.68 x 0.67 inches and weighs 3.2 pounds, which makes it easy to take from room to room or slip in your back for your commute.

Given its slim dimensions, there's not much room for ports, but you get 2 Thunderbolt 4 ports along with a flip-down, USB-A port. I wonder if that door will last but it's nice to have the option to full in a full-size USB A cable. There's a mic/headphone jack as well.

The HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 comes in Nightball black, Slate blue and Sahara silver. I'm partial to the blue now that I've seen all the models in person. It has personality without being too showy. 

HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1: Display and audio

The 14-inch OLED display on the the HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 delivers a vibrant picture, whether I was using GIMP to create generative AI photos or surfing the web. This panel has a variable refresh rate of 48-120Hz to deliver smooth performance while helping save on battery life.

I also like the 16:10 aspect ratio on the new Spectre, which fits in more content than a 16:9 screen. Just don't expect the best brightness. This HP is rated for 500 nits of brightness when viewing HDR content, compared to 1,600 nits for the 14-inch MacBook Pro.

The new Spectre X350 14 2-in-1 models are the first consumer laptops to feature Poly audio tuning. I didn't have a chance to test out the speakers — two on either side of the keyboard — but HP says that you should get great voice quality along with strong overall sound. 

HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1: Webcam

One of my favorite features in the HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 is the 9MP camera, which puts the 1080p camera on the MacBook Pro to shame. I looked clear and my skin tone natural in a room with challenging lighting. And that's because this laptop features hardware-enabled low-light adjustments. 

I also appreciated that the webcam could keep my face centered as I moved around the frame, one of several AI features that's handled by the NPU. You can also blur the background with ease. 

HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1: Performance and AI Features

The HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 is powered by either a Intel Core Ultra 5 or Core Ultra 7 chip, which is backed up by 16GB or 32GB of RAM. Storage options include a 512GB NVMe SSD, 1TB or 2TB. There's Intel Arc graphics on board, too.

But the biggest deal is the beefed up NPU inside Intel's new chip, which can handle all sorts of AI tasks instead of the CPU or GPU. For example, I used GIMP to create an image of a golden retriever riding a skateboard with just a simple prompt. 

There's also a dedicated AI chip that can lock your PC when you walk away and wake it up when you approach. And I got a kick out of the privacy alerts that pop up when the Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 senses that someone else is looking over your shoulder. No snoop for you!

HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1: Battery life

The HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 is rated for up to 13 hours of battery life in general use, and up to 17 hours of video playback. We saw over 17 hours of juice from the MacBook Pro 14-inch M3 when surfing the web, so HP could be at a disadvantage here.

The good news is that this HP supports fast charging, and you can get to 50% in about 45 minutes. 

HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1: Outlook

Overall, the HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 is a very attractive and capable system that has the potential to make our best Windows 11 laptop list and our best 2-in-1 laptop guide. 

I'm particularly impressed by the sharp 9MP webcam, several time-saving AI features and the colorful OLED display. And it's all wrapped up in a design that's lighter than the 14-inch MacBook Pro — and that's with a touch screen. 

The only things that give me pause right now are the relatively short rated battery life and the brightness of the display, but we'll see how it fares once we get it into the lab.

HP Spectre x360 13.5 Review: Do-It-All Device

The classiest 2-in-1 around..

HP Spectre x360 13.5

Tom's Hardware Verdict

The HP Spectre x360 13.5 is an attractive 2-in-1 convertible with a lovely OLED design, a sharp webcam and a strong port selection for its size. HP has to cut down the amount of preinstalled software, which makes the premium laptop feel far less luxurious.

Thunderbolt 4 and USB Type-A ports

Distinguished, mature design that also lets you upgrade storage

Colorful, 3:2 OLED display

Solid performance, webcam and audio

Too much bloatware for a premium device

GlamCam software can have overpowering effect

Why you can trust Tom's Hardware Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test .

When you use the same tool for work and your personal life, as more and more of us do these days (though that may not be the best idea!), you need it to do everything well. Few achieve that. But the HP Spectre x360 13.5 ($1,249.99 to start; $1,749.99 as tested) is the rare jack-of-all-trades that cuts few corners as a do-it-all device.

It isn't the most powerful laptop out there — in fact, HP is using a 15W Intel U-series processor here, which seems to help with battery life. But those who use spreadsheets and text documents, browse the web and do nothing more strenuous than some photo editing should be fine. The slim design boasts its fair share of ports (not including the dongle that comes in the box), a crisp OLED display, a high-resolution webcam and decent battery life (considering that display, anyway). Frankly, there's very little for me to say negatively about it. In the premium space, this Spectre x360 is one of the best ultrabooks that I've tested in the past few months.

Design of the HP Spectre x360 13.5

HP has made one handsome laptop. The Spectre x360 13.5 is simple and clean, with a few flourishes to make it feel like a fashion item, not just hardware.The Spectre's recycled aluminum chassis feels premium in the hands. We tested it in "nightfall black" with brass accents, though you can also get it in silver or a dark blue. HP's logo reflects off the lid in the light gold color, which also highlights the edges of the device. It's especially noticeable on the back edges of the laptop, which are cut flat to fit ports.

When you open the laptop, you'll see that the 13.5-inch, 3:2 display has thin bezels on the side, though HP left more room on the top and bottom, presumably to fit the 5 megapixel camera. Considering how much screen real estate you get with the taller aspect ratio, I can take a bit of bezel. The right side of the screen is magnetized so you can attach an included stylus for storage.

The backlit keyboard has a large, striking font on it, with the exception of an empty space for the fingerprint reader. That fingerprint reader worked quickly and accurately when I couldn't use facial recognition because I was wearing a mask. The spacious touchpad also has the same brass trimming as the rest of the notebook . With a pair of 360-degree hinges, the Spectre can be folded all the way back into a tablet. You can also put it in tent mode or balance it on the keyboard with the stand up to use as a display. The 3:2 aspect ratio helps here. I find it far more natural to use that shape screen as a tablet compared to a typical 16:9 display.

Despite how thin the Spectre is, HP has crammed a few ports into it. On the right side, there are a pair of Thunderbolt 4 ports — one on the side and one on the cut off corner. The left side has a USB Type-A port, which HP fit in with a drop-jaw hinge, as well as a 3.5 mm headphone jack on the corner. I admire HP for cramming USB Type-A in there, as many thin laptops have gone exclusively to USB Type-C. That being said, it can be finicky to get peripherals in there. HP also includes a surprisingly premium USB-C hub, with two more USB-A ports and an HDMI port as well as a USB-C for pass-through charging. It has a short, braided cable (The power supply also has a braided cable, which feels premium. It should be at this price point!)

The Spectre weighs 3.01 pounds and measures 11.74 x 8.68 x 0.67 inches. It felt perfectly reasonable in my backpack (in HP's included sleeve, a nice touch). The Lenovo Yoga 9i Gen 7 , a rival convertible, is 3.09 pounds and 12.5 x 9.06 x 0.6 inches. The Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1 (7420) , a mid-range convertible with the same processor as the Spectre,  is 12.36 x 8.95 x 0.7 inches and 3.46 pounds. Apple's MacBook Air , a clamshell laptop with a fanless design, is 2.7 pounds and 11.97 x 8.45 x 0.44 inches. 

HP Spectre x360 13.5 Specifications

Productivity performance on the hp spectre x360 13.5.

We tested the HP Spectre x360 with an Intel Core i7-1255U, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD. HP's choice of a U-series processor here suggests that the company is focused on keeping the Spectre cool and quiet. This is the same CPU we saw in the Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1, while the Lenovo Yoga 9i Gen 7, which is also a slim 2-in-1, went with a higher-wattage Intel Core i7-1260P. We're also tossing in Apple's MacBook Air with M2 into the test pool, which is also quiet, because that system doesn't have a fan at all.

On Geekbench 5, an overall performance test with an emphasis on the CPU, the Spectre notched a single-core score of 1,668 and a multi-core score of 7,243. The Lenovo Yoga 9 Gen 7  with a Core i7-1260P traded blows with the Spectre, scoring slightly higher on single-core (1,722) and slightly lower on multi-core (7,150). The Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1, with the same processor as the Spectre, was very similar on single-core (1,693) but behind on multi-core performance (6,527). Apple's M2 showed off, winning on both single-core (1,932) and multi-core (8,919) performance. 

HP's convertible copied 25GB of files at a rate of 1,363.29 MBps. The Yoga was faster here (1,506.89 MBps). The MacBook Air was a bit slower (958.85 MBps), while the Inspiron, at 404.86 MBps, dragged in comparison. We use Handbrake to have laptops transcode a 4K video to 1080p . It took the Spectre 10 minutes and 33 seconds to complete the task, coming out ahead of the Yoga and its higher-wattage CPU (12:18), but in a rare victory, the cheaper Inspiron was faster (9:59) than its Windows counterparts. The MacBook Air, with its M2 chip, won out at 7:52. To stress test the Spectre, we ran the demanding Cinebench R23 benchmark 20 times on a loop. The laptop started by putting up a score of 6,619.97, before dropping to the low 6,000s, where it would spend most of the test. There were a few drops to the mid-to-low 5,000's, which likely coincided with when I heard the fans ramp up. The Core i7-1255U's two performance cores ran at an average of 2.36 GHz, while the eight efficiency cores averaged 1.84 GHz. The CPU package measured an average of 67.08 degrees Celsius.

Display on the HP Spectre x360 13.5

The Spectre x360 has a 13.5-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio to show as much of your work as possible. It's great if, like me, you write a lot and want to see more of your work. It also means less scrolling as you read. We tested HP's 3000 x 2000 OLED display which is bright and vivid, though the company also has 1080p touch screens.

The screen isn't quite 4K, but I used it to watch one of our test films, the 4K short Tears of Steel . A very early scene features two characters, one dressed in dark clothes, the other in neon blues and pinks. Those colors stood out against the deep blacks, as well as out-of-focus greens from leaves in the background. HP's panel covers 124% of the sRGB color gamut, and 87.7% of the DCI-P3 gamut besting the non-OLED competitors, though falling short of the exceptionally vivid Yoga 9i (198% and 140.1%, respectively). But the Spectre, at 355 nits of brightness, beat the Yoga's 352 nits. The MacBook Air, however, was the most luminous at 489 nits. When we put a white square on a black background, which occasionally boosts brightness in select areas on OLED screens, the Spectre's selection climbed to 362 nits.

Keyboard, Touchpad and Stylus on the HP Spectre x360 13.5

The Spectre has clicky, responsive keys, but I wish the travel were a bit deeper. Still, on the Monkeytype typing test, I reached 114 words per minute with 98% accuracy. That's about as good as I tend to do.

The power button is on the keyboard, to the left of the delete key. A simple tap won't turn the machine off, thankfully. Perhaps the only other big issue is that HP has opted for half-height up and down arrow keys. I much prefer an inverted-T shape, which I've seen HP use on other laptops, like its Victus gaming lineup.

HP's 4.9 x 3.1-inch touchpad, surrounded by brass accents, is big and smooth. There's plenty of room to comfortably perform Window's four-finger gestures, like swipes between virtual desktops. It's comfortable, and accurate. The stylus has a new home on the right side of the display. (On this laptop's predecessor, the Spectre x360 14 that we reviewed in 2021, it attached magnetically to the left side of the keyboard). This reminds me a bit of Microsoft's Surface Pro 8 .

The pen, the HP Rechargeable MPP 2.0 Tilt Pen , is decent. It's round with a flat edge (that's the one that attaches to the screen) with two barrel buttons. The top slides up to reveal a USB-C port for charging, which is far more convenient than replacing batteries. As someone who takes notes more than drawing, I'd prefer something a bit thinner. But you need very little pressure to get a response (HP claims nine grams on its website), and in sketching apps, tilting the pen allows for shading.

Audio on the HP Spectre x360 13.5

The speakers on the Spectre x360 continue HP's long partnership with Bang & Olufsen. It's been fruitful, and I feel the Spectre continues on trend.

Arlo Parks' "Softly" was crisp and clear on the Spectre. It got loud enough to fill my apartment (others get louder, but this is plenty for when I'm sitting in front of it and using it), and the vocals, keys and synths were all clear. The drums could use a bit more kick, though the low-end is often an issue on laptops.

There are some equalizer changes you can make in the included Bang & Olufsen audio control app, and some patience with the bass section did boost the percussion a little bit.

I preferred the sound of the bottom firing-speaker hitting my desk as opposed to being in tablet mode, when the speakers fire against the lid, but the difference isn't terribly stark.

Upgradeability of the HP Spectre x360 13.5

Consider me pleasantly surprised. I've reviewed a number of HP laptops that were effectively unrepairable without professional help because screws were placed beneath adhesive strips. When I checked the Spectre x360 13.5's service manual , I was surprised to find those strips (which are still there on the Spectre x360 14) don't need to come off to open the laptop.

Four Torx screws secure the bottom cover to the computer. (The service guide says that they're Phillips head screws. They are not). The screws closer to the hinges are longer than those near the front of the laptop, so be sure to keep them separate and remember what goes where.

With those removed, you can use a pry tool to gently separate the base from the rest of the laptop.

When you're in, you'll see that the m.2 2280 SSD can be removed and replaced, as can the network card and the battery. The SSD is underneath a copper heatsink held down by a pair of Phillips head screws, while the networking card is under an adhesive, papery heat shield. HP has gone with soldered memory on this laptop.

There is a small bit of empty space to the right of the battery. It makes me wonder whether this could have been designed with either a larger battery, or perhaps a motherboard with room for another storage drive. But hey, at least you can get into this Spectre at all.

Battery Life

The Spectre x360 ran for 10 hours and 12 minutes on our battery test, in which we have laptops browse the web, stream video over Wi-Fi and run OpenGL tests, all with the screen set to 150 nits of brightness.

This was more than two hours longer than the Lenovo Yoga 9i, which I suspect may be partially because of the Spectre's lower-wattage processor. This is also a pretty strong number for an OLED laptop, as those screens really suck up juice. Dell's budget Inspiron 14 2-in-1 lasted only 7:52. The MacBook Air did the best on our test at 14:06.

Heat on the HP Spectre x360 13.5

In any position, the Spectre shouldn't be too hot to handle. We took our skin temperature measurements while running our Cinebench stress test to see how hot the Spectre x360 gets under an intensive workload.

At the center of the keyboard, between the G and H keys, the laptop measured 37.4 degrees Celsius (99.5 degrees Fahrenheit). I could feel the heat on my hands, but I wouldn't say the laptop was unusable. The touchpad was chillier at 31.8 degrees Celsius (89.24 degrees Fahrenheit).

On the bottom of the laptop, the hottest point measured 42 degrees Celsius (107.6 degrees Fahrenheit), towards the back, though most of the laptop was cooler.

Webcam on the HP Spectre x360 13.5

HP seems serious about the webcam on the Spectre x360. It's a 5MP lens with dedicated software for making adjustments. HP calls this "GlamCam," and it's nestled in the HP Command Center app.

The camera works quite well. At my office desk, which is well-lit from nearby windows and fluorescent lights, I could make out a ton of detail in the camera, from individual hairs on my head to bags under my eyes from not sleeping great the night before.

GlamCam has an auto-frame feature that's designed to keep you in the camera frame while you move around, similar to Apple's Center Stage on the iPad. I don't tend to move from my desk much during calls, but in testing it out, I did find that while it typically worked, the motion could be a bit jarring. It was also less likely to follow me around while I was wearing a facemask and using the laptop in public — I suspect it's looking for an entire face.

There's also lighting correction, which made extremely subtle changes at my well-lit office desk. At home, I have some bright windows behind my desk. While HP's software couldn't stop that light from appearing harsh, it did adjust the tone a bit so that the contrast wasn't so intense.

The one that made the most difference was the appearance filter, which "retouches" your face. I found that on steps two and three (step one appeared to be my regular face), it noticeably removed small wrinkles and bags under my eyes. In fact, the third step seemed a bit fake. The step was also extreme, and smoothed out other details, like hairs. I even looked like I had fewer eyelashes.

I'm of two minds about this. If it makes someone feel more comfortable, great, but I also am not sure that it should be up to laptop companies to perpetuate these standards of appearance. That being said, no one is making you use any of these features, and they're off by default.

There's a built-in camera shutter, which you can activate by pressing a dedicated button on the keyboard. The infrared sensors let you log in with Windows Hello facial recognition, which worked flawlessly for me except for the times I forgot to disengage the privacy shutter.

Software and Warranty on the HP Spectre x360 13.5

There are over 13 pieces of software with the name "HP" in it preinstalled on the laptop, and that's on top of promotional trials for Dropbox, ExpressVPN, McAfee LiveSafe, McAfee WebAdvisor and others. Some of these even have bookmarks in the Edge browser, which is something you typically see on much cheaper notebooks, not premium ones.

Some of it, like the HP Command Center can be useful. It lets you pick from different power plans and has some camera customizations under the HP GlamCam tab. I think other apps, like an app to adjust pen settings to and to pick between different display modes should be built in here.

Other apps include HP Quickdrop to move files between your laptop and phone, Concepts for drawing and sketching, Duet to put your PC screen on another device and Palette, which helps sort and match photos. Some of these, like Concepts, have in-app purchases for more tools (in that app, it's a wider variety of brushes). It's effectively an entire creative suite between your phone and the Spectre, but it's a lot to be preinstalled.

HP sells the Spectre x360 with a one-year warranty. Extended services can be purchased if you buy the laptop from HP's website.

HP Spectre x360 13.5 Configurations

We tested the HP Spectre x360 13.5 in black with an Intel Core i7-1225U, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD and a 3000 x 2000 OLED touchscreen. That runs for $1,749.99 at Best Buy and is also available as a custom configuration from HP's website.

The laptop starts at $1,249.99 (though is on sale for $1,199.99 as of this writing) in silver with an Intel Core i5-1235U, 8GB of RAM, 512GB of storage and a 1920 x 1080 touchscreen.

Other options include a "nocturne blue" chassis (changing colors from the default silver on HP's website costs an extra $10), up to 32GB of RAM, a 1080p screen with privacy features and up to 2TB of storage. It costs $2,029.99 maxxed out.

Bottom Line

The HP Spectre x360 13.5 is a classy, capable 2-in-1 with a decent number of ports, a colorful OLED screen and a sharp, high-resolution webcam. While HP opted for Intel's 15W U-series processors rather than the more powerful 28W P-series option in some competitors, most users won't want for performance

Among premium Windows ultraportables, the Spectre's biggest competition is the Lenovo Yoga 9i Gen 7, a 14-inch convertible 2-in-1, which uses the 28W parts and in some use cases outpaces the Spectre in performance. The Yoga also has a brighter, more vivid OLED display. But the Spectre comes with a stylus, which the Yoga doesn't, has longer battery life and is surprisingly easy to upgrade storage with down the line. The Spectre, at the moment, seems a bit easier to buy. Several configurations, including the Yoga 9i we reviewed, have been out of stock at Lenovo and other retailers as of late.

Apple's MacBook Air reigns on battery life and in some performance use cases, and if your priority is thinness, it may make sense for you. But the Spectre x360, with its convertible design and touch screen, has a number of features that laptop lacks. If the Spectre x360's $1,299.99 starting price is too much for your wallet, the Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1 is cheaper, and we liked it.

But pound-for-pound, the HP Spectre x360 13.5 is among the best ultrabooks we've tested of late. If you want to balance performance, battery life and ports with a sharp webcam and a gorgeous display, the Spectre has it all unequivocally.

  • digitalgriffin I LOVED my wifes Ryzen 2400U HP x360 with it's flip back design and aluminum housing. It was an exceptional laptop in terms of quality with a great touchscreen display, good hinge and metal casing. I paid ~$650 for it. But I would not pay $800 for one, let alone $1200+. The specs are too low for what it cost. And I wouldn't dare touch one with a OLED. Way too many burn in issues that will make this laptop a "throw away" in 4 years. Reply
  • bigdragon I appreciate the mention of the stylus and some of its capabilities. <3 Looks like the latest PC stylus designs are imitating what Apple has done with the iPad Pencil. This is good. Not enough to get me to upgrade away from an iPad Air 3 and Yoga 720 though. Combining the 2 devices would be nice, but no product meets that goal. Reply
  • Brian D Smith "Too much bloatware " Often cited as a REASON to AVOID. But seriously, it's easy enough to remove this stuff...so that sounds like a non-argument from the get-go. Why 'AVOID'??? Reply

  • Brian D Smith Well, sure, no one likes this...but when you have taken care of it...it's never going to be an issue, so calling it a "REASON TO AVOID" the product itself seems sill. 'mushy keyboard' or such is something you can't fix. THAT would be a real 'reason'... Reply

Gorgeous design

Excellent battery life

Great performance for day-to-day work

Large, comfortable keyboard

Fans can get noisy

Not great as a tablet device

Why you can trust TechRadar We spend hours testing every product or service we review, so you can be sure you’re buying the best. Find out more about how we test.

HP Spectre x360 (2021): two-minute review

It’s hard to improve on a winning formula but the HP Spectre x360 (2021) has done just that. It raises the bar of what to expect out of these laptops now that it comes with Intel ’s Evo certification. 

To meet Intel’s standards, HP had to not only improve upon the laptop’s performance but its design and battery life as well. In fact, it lasted almost 13 hours in our PCMark 10 battery life test.

This makes the 2021 refresh of the Spectre x360 one of the best laptops out there right now, building on everything we loved in our HP Spectre x360 (2020) review . Whether you’re concerned about battery life and want something that can hang with Chromebooks and MacBooks during long workdays, need something portable enough to easily take on the go, or want something powerful, the HP will be able to satisfy just about any user outside of hardcore gamers.

Price and availability Design Performance Battery Life Features Should I buy? Also consider

With that said, the HP Spectre x360 takes some missteps. It’s a bit clumsy when in tablet mode since it’s a bit too big to comfortably use in that mode. If that’s a crucial feature for you and you want a laptop that’s as easy to use no matter what form factor it’s in, you might want to consider a Surface Pro 7 or iPad instead, which are thin and light tablets that can be used with keyboards.

Our other issue is that the fans become quite loud when you’re using the laptop – and, on occasion, even when you’re not. A few times we heard the fans kick even when the Spectre x360 was closed. It’s the one area of the design that doesn't feel completely premium.

Aside from those issues, this is a supremely accomplished laptop that’s great for day-to-day use, including work. However, with starting prices of $1,349/£1,199/AU$3,339 (various markets have different starting configurations), it's pricey. If you have the budget for it, though, you won’t be disappointed.

HP Spectre x360: price and availability

  • How much is it? Starting at $1,149 / £1,199 / AU$3,399
  • When can you get it? The HP Spectre x360 (2021) is available now
  • Where can you get it? The HP Spectre x360 (2021) is available in the US, UK, and Australia

The HP Spectre x360 (2021) is available in a variety of configurations and prices. Prices start at $1,149.99 in the US, for a model with an Intel Core i5 -1135G7 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD.

In the UK, the base model costs £1,199.99 and comes with an Intel Core i5 -1135G7 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.

Then there’s a version with an Intel Core i7 -1165G7 processor, 16GB of R AM and a 512GB SSD, which is the version on review here. It costs $1,349.99/£1,399.99.

There's also a model with the same CPU and RAM, but with a 1TB SSD and a 4K OLED screen for £1,699.99.

In addition, the Spectre x360 comes with various screen sizes: 13 inches (the version we’re testing), 15 inches, and 13.5 inches (which has a taller 16:10 aspect ratio).

Here is the HP Spectre x360 (2021) configuration sent to TechRadar for review: 

CPU : Intel Core i7-1165G7 (quad-core, up to 4.7GHz Boost) Graphics : Intel Iris Xe RAM : 16GB LPDDR4 (3200MHz) Screen : 13.3-inch FHD (1080p) touch Storage : 512GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD Ports : 1x USB-A 3.1, 2 x Thunderbolt 4, microSD card reader, combi audio jack Connectivity : Intel Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5 Camera : HP TrueVision HD 1080p IR Webcam Weight : 2.8 pounds (1.3kg) Size (W x D x H) : 12.08 x 7.66 x 0.67 ins (306 x 194.5 x 16.9 mm)

In Australia, you can get the 13-inch model with an Intel Core i7-1165G7, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD for AU$3,399. It's also available with the Core i7, 16GB of RAM, a 4K OLED screen and a 2TB SSD for AU$4,599.

Like models in the UK and US, there are numerous configurations available, including models with 14-inch and 15-inch screen sizes.

So, as you can see, there's plenty of choice available for those in the market for a new HP Spectre x360 – but we'd hesitate to say there's a model for every budget. Even the cost of the base models exceed those of many other laptops. This is a seriously premium laptop – which means it needs to work hard to justify its high price.

HP Spectre x360: design

  • Stunning design
  • Good amount of ports
  • A better laptop than tablet

With a premium price you expect a premium design, and HP certainly delivers with the HP Spectre x360 (2021). To be honest, we never had any doubt that it would; the previous model was one of the nicest-looking laptops we've had the pleasure of reviewing.

So, it comes as little surprise that the new model is yet another gorgeous laptop from HP. Design-wise, the Spectre x360 is basically identical to the previous model  – which is no bad thing, considering how impressed we were with its looks.

The Spectre x360 arrives with a brushed-metal design that's available in several color combinations. The 360-degree hinge, which allows the screen to flip back completely, turning the Spectre x360 into a tablet-like device, feels solid and reliable. The right-hand side is engraved with the word ‘Spectre’ – a nice touch that further cements the Spectre x360’s overall premium feel.

In terms of connections, you get an audio-in jack and full-size USB port on the right (the inclusion of a full-size USB port is a nice touch for such a thin and light laptop), plus two USB-C ports, a microSD port and a physical webcam kill switch on the left.

The latter allows you to turn off the webcam when it isn't in use; it's a great feature for people concerned about their privacy. It’s definitely a big selling point, and that – along with the full-size USB port and microSD slot – show that it is possible for a thin and light laptop to incorporate multiple connections without compromising design. It certainly puts the two USB-C ports of the MacBook Air (M1, 2020) and MacBook Pro 13-inch (M1, 2020) to shame.

Open up the HP Spectre x360 and you’re presented with a bright and vibrant screen, surrounded by extremely thin bezels. This gives the device a modern look, while keeping the overall size of the laptop down. 

It’s another case of a Windows 10 laptop looking more stylish than an Apple MacBook – something both HP and Intel will be pleased to learn, and is yet another reason for Apple to consider updating its MacBook designs.

The keyboard is large and enjoyable to use, with the keys offering decent travel. They’re also backlit, so you can comfortably use them in the dark.

The touchpad is nice and responsive. It's wider than you’d expect on a 13-inch laptop, providing a bit more room to move your fingers. There’s also a fingerprint scanner to the right of the touchpad for logging into Windows 10.

Similar to HP's provision of ports, the company has found a way of cramming a large keyboard and trackpad into a small body. It’s a seriously impressive design feat, and means the HP Spectre x360 doesn’t only look good, it feels good to use as well.

Flipping the screen entirely back, using the Spectre x360 as a tablet-like device, the large touchscreen works well. However, while this is a thin and light laptop, compared to tablets such as the iPad, the Spectre x360 actually feels heavy and bulky. 

Having the option to use the laptop in this way is certainly welcome, but it isn't an ideal replacement for a standard tablet. The Spectre x360 is far more successful as a laptop.

HP Spectre x360: performance

  • Upgraded 11th-gen Intel processors
  • Not really good for gaming

The biggest upgrade on the HP Spectre x360 (2021) over the previous model are its components and performance, with the laptop being a showcase for Intel’s latest mobile processors.

The review unit we were sent in for review features an Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor. This is a quad-core unit that can achieve boost speeds of up to 4.70GHz, which marks a decent leap over the Intel Core i7-1065G7 (the previous generation CPU) included in last year’s model.

As you can see in our Cinebench and Geekbench results, the new Spectre x360 delivers a lift in performance compared to last year’s model, with a single-core score of 1,317 compared to the previous model’s 1,259. It isn't a huge leap, but it’s an increase nonetheless. The Intel Core i7-1065G7 was a pretty great mobile processor anyway, so it’s good that Intel has built on its solid foundation.

Here’s how the HP Spectre x360 (2021) performed in our suite of benchmark tests :

Cinebench R20 : 1,430 points GeekBench 5 : 1,317 (single-core); 4,541 (multi-core) PCMark 10 (Home Test) : 4,721 points  PCMark 10 Battery Life : 12 hours 52 minutes  Battery Life (TechRadar movie test) : 11 hours 22 minutes

Overall, as a result of the new CPU, along with a hefty 16GB of RAM, the HP Spectre x360 is a great little performer, with Windows 10 feeling fast and responsive. Multi-tasking, with numerous apps open at once, alongside plenty of Edge tabs too, didn’t really serve to slow down the Spectre x360’s performance, either.

For day-to-day use, then, the Spectre x360 delivers the sort of performance you'd expect of a premium laptop at this price point. You certainly won’t be disappointed.

However, one of the biggest upgrades to come alongside the new Tiger Lake CPUs such as the Intel Core i7-1165G7 is the inclusion of Intel Iris Xe graphics. This is an integrated GPU that promises to offer vastly improved performance compared to previous integrated graphics, and could even rival some discrete GPUs.

While the Spectre x360 certainly isn't one of the best gaming laptops out there, it could feasibly run some of the best PC games that don't have especially steep hardware requirements and will definitely do better than a lot of other thin and light laptops out there. 

While Cyberpunk 2077 at full graphical settings isn't on that list, Intel has claimed it could play GTA 5 at over 60fps, while esports games such as Rocket League, League of Legends and CS:GO – which are less graphically demanding, but require fast performance – could be playable on the right settings.

So, of course, we attempted to play a few games on the HP Spectre x360. As we've mentioned, this definitely isn't a gaming laptop, but we wanted to see if it would be possible to play games at the end of the day, when you want to unwind after a hard day at work.

The answer is: sort of . Total War: Three Kingdoms managed only 30fps on low settings. Anything more demanding was unplayable. We also fired up Ori and the Will of the Wisps – a visually stunning 2D platform game, which despite looking great, is less taxing than a lot of other modern games. 

Unfortunately, we had to drop graphical settings to low, and scale down the resolution, to achieve smooth gameplay. As such, while it was possible to play modern games such as Ori and the Will of the Wisps, it was only with big sacrifices to graphical fidelity. So, don’t give up the day job, Spectre x360.

One thing to note, is that even while performing relatively low-powered tasks, such as downloading an app, the fans of the Spectre x360 will kick in. In a way, it’s understandable, since this is a super-thin laptop that needs to keep its components cool. 

However, it proved annoying, and was in sharp contrast to the silent operation we saw in our Apple MacBook Air (M1) review , which has a fanless design.

HP Spectre x360: battery life

  • Solid, half-day battery life
  • Fast Charging capable
  • Intel Evo Certified

One of the biggest quality of life improvements Intel is pushing with its Intel Evo platform is long battery life, and the HP Spectre x360 (2021) doesn’t disappoint here. It lasted an excellent 11 hours and 22 minutes in our own battery life test, which loops a 1080p video file at 50% brightness until the battery dies.

The previous HP Spectre x360 also performed well in this test, scoring 10 hours and 55 minutes. Nevertheless, the extra half an hour is welcome, and it means the more powerful components haven’t come at the cost of battery life.

We also ran the intensive PCMark 10 battery life test on the laptop, which replicates day-to-day use such as web browsing and video calling. Here, the Spectre x360 managed almost 13 hours – again, a very impressive achievement and a big leap over the previous model’s four-hour result (on PCMark 8).

As such, the Spectre x360's battery is nice and balanced; it's able to last equally well in both light- and medium-use cases. You’ll easily get through a full work day on this laptop, which makes it an excellent tool for business users who are looking for a device that offers superb performance, fantastic looks, and won’t need to be plugged in until they return home.

HP Spectre x360: software and features

The HP Spectre x360 (2021) is premium enough that it isn't overwhelmed by bloatware, and – being a 2-in-1 touchscreen – also comes with an HP Tilt Pen. There is also a physical webcam killswitch, which is something that should be standard on every laptop in 2021, but many still haven't gotten with the program. 

Even better, the HP killswitch is a physical shutter over the camera rather than a software webcam deactivation, since in the latter case, malicious actors can reactivated your webcam remotely with a little bit of malware. Software killswitches are really only good enough to let you easily shut off your camera when you need to step away from the meeting, but that's about it. 

HP has been a real leader on the physical shutter front (along with Lenovo), and as such, we will never miss an opportunity to commend either company for caring about its customers' privacy and consistently implementing privacy shutters. More manufacturers need to follow their example.

Should you buy an HP Spectre x360 (2021)?

If you're still seriously considering the HP Spectre x360 (2021), we can safely say you're almost certainly not going to be disappointed, but even though it's one of the best 2-in-1 laptops you're going to find anywhere, it's not going to be the right fit for everybody.

Buy it if...

You want a stylish laptop The HP Spectre x360 really does look and feel premium, sporting one of the best designs we’ve seen in a laptop.

You want a powerful laptop for day-to-day use The new 11th-generation mobile CPU from Intel means Windows 10 runs extremely well, and the laptop is even capable of a bit of light gaming.

You’re after all-day battery life The battery life of the HP Spectre x360 is excellent; it will easily last you a full work or school day. Even on long transatlantic flights (remember those?), this laptop should last the journey.

Don't buy it if...

You just want a tablet The Spectre x360 can double as a tablet-like device, but it’s bigger, bulkier and more expensive. If you just want a tablet, there are better options out there.

You want a silent laptop The fans of the Spectre x360 kick in a little bit too readily, which means this is a laptop that can get noisy in use. The new MacBook Air, with its fanless design, shows how it’s done.

You’re on a budget This laptop with a premium design and premium features also comes with a premium price tag.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 6 Lenovo ThinkPad Yogas are consistently among the best 2-in-1 laptops, and the X1 Yoga Gen 6 is one of the best of the best. In terms of price and performance, it can go toe-to-toe with the HP Spectre x360. It does have more of an enterprise focus though, so there are some extra business-y features that bump the price up a bit more than the Spectre x360's.

  • HP Spectre x360 14 (2024)

New Intel silicon burnishes one of the best, slickest 2-in-1 laptops

Eric Grevstad

Bottom Line

  • Gorgeous OLED touch screen
  • Impressive productivity performance
  • Lengthy battery life
  • Elegant design
  • World-class webcam
  • Expensive when fully loaded
  • No SD/microSD card slot or cellular internet
  • No HDMI port (two USB-C docks included)
  • No internal pen storage

The Spectre x360 is HP's flagship consumer convertible laptop and a multiple Editors' Choice award winner. (HP is also PCMag's 2023 Readers' Choice award winner for 2-in-1 laptops.) For 2024, it gets Intel's new don't-say-14th-Gen Core Ultra processor architecture and switches back from a 13.5-inch, 3:2 aspect ratio display to a 14-inch, 16:10 ratio panel, but it hasn't really changed much—it remains a sleek and light 2-in-1 that stands out for build quality, versatility, and productivity. The latest Spectre isn't cheap: It starts at $1,499.99 and costs $1,969.99 as tested, with 32GB of memory and 2TB of storage. Regardless, the latest HP Spectre x360 14 easily earns another Editors' Choice nod as a premium convertible status symbol.

Design and Configurations: Cutting Corners in an Attractive Way 

As before, HP sells the Spectre x360 2-in-1 in 14- and 16-inch screen sizes, the latter a potent desktop replacement that's too hefty to be more than occasionally useful in tablet mode. The 14-inch model satisfies sketchers and note-takers with a rechargeable stylus that sticks magnetically to the laptop's side. (You'll find no garage or niche to store the pen internally.)

hr specter reviews

While base models get by with an Intel Core Ultra 5 125H chip, our loaded review unit flaunts a Core Ultra 7 155H (six Performance cores, eight standard, and two low-power Efficient cores; 22 threads), with a clock speed varying from 1.4GHz to 4.8GHz and Intel Arc integrated graphics. It's teamed with 32GB of memory, a 2TB NVMe solid-state drive, Windows 11 Pro, and a 2,880-by-1,800-pixel OLED touch screen with dynamic 60Hz or 120Hz refresh rate. An HP.com Core Ultra 7 config with a less extravagant 16GB of memory and 1TB SSD is $1,649.99. 

Available in Slate Blue or Sahara Silver as well as our system's Nightfall Black, the Spectre measures 0.67 by 12.4 by 8.7 inches. HP brags that its aluminum lid and keyboard deck are 90% recycled, and its plastic keycaps and the scissor mechanisms beneath are 50% recycled. Thin bezels (HP quotes an 89% screen-to-body ratio) surround the display. You'll feel virtually no flex if you grasp the screen corners or press the keyboard deck. The F2 key serves as a webcam privacy shutter.

The HP is slightly too heavy for ultraportable status at 3.19 pounds, but actually a tad trimmer than the company's non-convertible HP Pavilion Plus 14 (0.74 by 12.4 by 8.9 inches). Its archrival, the Lenovo Yoga 9i Gen 8 , is barely larger (0.6 by 12.5 by 9.1 inches) and a tad lighter (3.09 pounds). 

More monochromatic than its brass-accented predecessors, the 2024 Spectre x360 keeps the signature sleek styling with diagonal-cut rear corners that hold ports (an audio jack at left and a Thunderbolt 4/USB4 port at right). A second USB4 port is nearby on the right side, with a drop-jaw USB Type-A port on the left.

You'll find no onboard HDMI port for an external monitor, but the Spectre comes with two USB-C mini docks or dongles, one with just an HDMI port and another with HDMI, two USB-A, and one USB-C. The AC adapter has a USB-C connector. Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth handle wireless connectivity.

Using the HP Spectre x360 14: Always Look Your Best 

Videoconferencers will find the Spectre's webcam is exceptional, with 9-megapixel resolution (videos up to 4K or 2160p) and images that are remarkably bright and colorful with no noise or static. The myHP software lets you blur or replace the background. This tool can also make backlight and low-light adjustments as well as handle tone and appearance enhancement—in addition to the ability to tag-team a second USB webcam if you move around a lot. It can also capture PDFs and perform keystone correction to help you read tilted whiteboards. HP Enhanced Lighting puts a white border around the screen to mimic a ring light.

The webcam supports Windows Hello face recognition, joining the fingerprint reader built into the power button to give you two ways to skip typing passwords. An HP Command Center utility not only provides familiar smart features such as locking the system if you walk away and waking it on return, but lets you pause and resume video play with a wave of your hand and can warn you if you're logging too much screen time or put your eyes too close to the display.

Speaking of the display, it's like some other recent HP laptops in being IMAX Enhanced, which is less impressive than it sounds: You'll see a few more pixels at the top and bottom of Marvel movies on Disney+, for example. Regardless, this is a crisp, bright, and beautiful screen, with sky-high contrast and rich, vivid colors. Fine details are razor-sharp, and viewing angles are wide. Photos and videos look amazing, and text pops on white backgrounds. myHP lets you toggle among HDR and manual sRGB, Adobe RGB, DCI-P3, and native screen modes. 

The 5.5-inch pen's sliding top reveals its USB-C charging port. The stylus has 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and two buttons, which the myHP utility lets you reprogram from the eraser function and right-click to other functions, such as taking screenshots, basic media controls, or opening new browser tabs. The pen keeps up with my fastest swoops and scribbles with effective palm rejection.

hr specter reviews

Sound from the two top-firing tweeters and two front-firing woofers isn't deafening but loud enough to fill a modest room. Tuned by the conferencing-oriented Poly Studio (a.k.a. Plantronics) instead of HP's audiophile contractor Bang & Olufsen, sound is nevertheless clean and crisp; you'll hear minimal bass but you can make out overlapping tracks. The myHP software provides music, movie, and voice presets and an equalizer, and the Start menu adds DTS:X and DTS Headphone:X enhancements. 

The backlit keyboard commits the common sin of pairing the Fn key with the cursor arrows instead of providing real Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys; it also commits HP's eternal sin of stacking hard-to-hit, half-height up and down arrow keys between full-size left and right ones in a clumsy row instead of the proper inverted T. The keyboard's typing feel is shallow but comfortably snappy and responsive.

hr specter reviews

HP's buttonless touchpad has a short, stiff click but taps and glides smoothly. It's large enough to take advantage of a myHP option that turns its left and right edges into vertical haptic sliders for screen brightness and audio volume, respectively.

Testing the HP Spectre x360 14: Intel Core Ultra 7 FTW 

As a premium 2-in-1, the Lenovo Yoga 9i is the most obvious comparison for our benchmark charts. Dell contributes 14-inch convertibles from opposite ends of the price spectrum, the under-$800 Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1 and $3,000 corporate-centric Dell Latitude 9440 2-in-1 . The last spot goes to the MSI Stealth 14 Studio , a clamshell in the HP's price bracket with a game-worthy Nvidia GeForce GPU instead of integrated graphics.

Productivity Tests 

We run the same general productivity benchmarks across both mobile and desktop systems. Our first test is UL's PCMark 10, which simulates a variety of real-world productivity and office workflows to measure overall system performance and also includes a storage subtest for the primary drive.

Three other benchmarks focus on the CPU, using all available cores and threads, to rate a PC's suitability for processor-intensive workloads. Maxon's Cinebench R23 uses that company's Cinema 4D engine to render a complex scene, while Geekbench 5.4 Pro from Primate Labs simulates popular apps ranging from PDF rendering and speech recognition to machine learning. Finally, we use the open-source video transcoder HandBrake 1.4 to convert a 12-minute video clip from 4K to 1080p resolution (lower times are better). 

Finally, we run PugetBench for Photoshop by workstation maker Puget Systems, which uses the Creative Cloud version 22 of Adobe's famous image editor to rate a PC's performance for content creation and multimedia applications. It's an automated extension that executes a variety of general and GPU-accelerated Photoshop tasks ranging from opening, rotating, resizing, and saving an image to applying masks, gradient fills, and filters.

The MSI's 45-watt (W) processor topped the HP's 28W chip in our CPU tests, but the Spectre's performance impressed regardless, with the new Intel Core Ultra 7 mostly landing between the chipmaker's previous-generation Core i7 and Core i9. It's no CGI-rendering or dataset-crunching workstation, but it's more than muscular enough for productivity and creativity tasks. 

Graphics Tests 

We test Windows PC graphics with two DirectX 12 gaming simulations from UL's 3DMark, Night Raid (more modest, suitable for laptops with integrated graphics) and Time Spy (more demanding, suitable for gaming rigs with discrete GPUs). 

Additionally, we run two tests from the cross-platform GPU benchmark GFXBench 5, which stresses both low-level routines like texturing and high-level, game-like image rendering. The 1440p Aztec Ruins and 1080p Car Chase tests, rendered offscreen to accommodate different display resolutions, exercise graphics and compute shaders using the OpenGL programming interface and hardware tessellation respectively. The more frames per second (fps), the better.

The Stealth's GeForce discrete GPU blew away the other laptops' integrated graphics. In other news, water is wet. Casual gamers and perhaps content creators will be happy to see the new Intel Arc Graphics are a noticeable step up from the last generation, however. 

Battery and Display Tests 

We test laptop battery life by playing a locally stored 720p video file (the open-source Blender movie Tears of Steel ) with display brightness at 50% and audio volume at 100%. We make sure the battery is fully charged before the test, with Wi-Fi and keyboard backlighting turned off. 

Additionally, we also use a Datacolor SpyderX Elite monitor calibration sensor and its Windows software to measure a laptop screen's color saturation—what percentage of the sRGB, Adobe RGB, and DCI-P3 color gamuts or palettes the display can show—and its 50% and peak brightness in nits (candelas per square meter).

The high-powered MSI's sins caught up with it, presenting wretched battery life in our video rundown, while the Spectre x360 led the way with swell unplugged stamina. The HP's display also dazzles with color matched only by the OLED Lenovo, though the Stealth's top-quality IPS panel comes close, and it emits ample brightness (OLED technology is generally worth about 100 IPS nits).

hr specter reviews

Verdict: One of 2024's Top-Tier 2-in-1s

We wish it cost a couple of hundred bucks less, but the 2024 HP Spectre x360 14 easily repeats as an Editors' Choice award recipient. We'd like to see a few minor complaints addressed next time, like a media card slot and somewhere to store the stylus, but these aren't deal-breakers here, especially thanks to the included accessories. All told, this may be the best consumer convertible you can buy so far this year—we'll hold off on making that call until we see more Intel Core Ultra-generation 2-in-1 laptops—but either way it's an excellent choice for grab-and-go productivity and versatility.

Review: hp’s 13.5-inch spectre x360 is a top ultralight—with flair, not the top performer, but the spectre has other wins, like its 3:2 screen..

Scharon Harding - Aug 27, 2022 1:00 pm UTC

HP Spectre x360 13.5

HP's 13.5-inch Spectre x360 has a little something for almost everyone. An ultralight build puts it a desirable class of convertibles with a frosted finish and flashy accents. A 3:2 screen stands taller than most and includes an OLED option that's vivid yet natural looking. There are also clever design choices, like a chamfered edge with a charging port, light-up volume/mic mute/camera shutter keys, plus decent port selection.

The Spectre x360 13.5-inch gets an A+ in looks and scores high (but not perfectly) in design details. But it has some room to grow when it comes to productivity, especially when compared against other highly capable ultralights in its price range.

For those who insist on squeezing every ounce of performance out of a sub-1-inch-thick convertible, there are stronger competitors. But for the rest, the 2022 Spectre is near the top of its class.

Table of Contents

Winning design.

  • Performance
  • Battery life
  • (AI-powered) webcam and more
  • A note on bloat
  • Near the top of its class

HP's Spectre lineup continues to feature some of the most attractive ultralights around, even if they are mildly less striking this year. The Nightfall Black color of my review unit includes accents so pale that they look more silver than the "brass" that HP describes. A thin, reflective, silver strip runs around the lid and deck, creating a layered effect when viewing the shut PC from a side. Oddly, you can even see a hint of the keyboard when viewing the closed laptop from the left or right side, so I'm a little more concerned about dust getting inside the PC when closed than I'd typically be.

The laptop's right side.

Visually, the hinges pop a bit less than last year's model , which included contrasting colors across the entire spine and hinges. But, more importantly, this year's hinge keeps the screen reliably in place no matter how far I bend the lid back.

The Spectre's spine.

Plus, the aluminum lid was harder to bend and felt denser than that of most other ultralight laptops I've tested lately.

That paired well with an equally solid deck; however, the deck's sloped edges occasionally made my wrists slide when I typed. This may have led me to more frequently bump into the touchpad when typing, causing abrupt, distracting interferences in my workflow.

It also comes in Nocturne Blue with Celestial Blue accents, which I wish I got to try, or a more boring Natural Silver.

HP Spectre x360 14 (2024)

  • CPU delivers good performance and future-proofing
  • Intel Arc GPU offers performance bump
  • Beautiful, all-metal chassis
  • Strong AV output with OLED display, quad speakers
  • Super-sharp 9-megapixel webcam
  • Always-on LED on power button gets annoying
  • GPU upgrades not offered
  • Limited port selection

The HP Spectre x360 14 two-in-one is one of the first laptops to feature Intel's new Core Ultra CPU. While this Meteor Lake update brings AI capabilities that will become more significant as software is updated to better take advantage of them, the Spectre x360 14 offers immediate benefits in the form of improved graphics performance from Intel's integrated Arc GPU. Moving from Intel's previous Iris Xe to Arc graphics doesn't turn the Spectre x360 into a gaming laptop, but content creators will appreciate the bump in performance.

The addition of the Core Ultra 7 155H processor is the big news here, but HP made a few other substantial upgrades to the Spectre x360 14. HP ditched the boxy 3:2 display found on previous models for a more versatile 16:10 aspect ratio. The webcam above the laptop's OLED display also received an update: It's a 9-megapixel camera that can capture 4K video. Combined with the AI-assisted Windows Studio Effects and noise reduction features, you'll look and sound great on video calls. With premium looks and premium parts, the HP Spectre x360 14 is one of the few laptops with integrated graphics and a price approaching $2,000 that I would recommend.

HP offers a choice of two Intel Core Ultra processors for the Spectre x360 14. The baseline model features the Core Ultra 5 125H chip along with 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD for $1,500. Our test system costs $1,970 and features the Core Ultra 7 155H CPU and comes maxed out with 32GB of RAM and a 2TB SSD. Both models feature Intel Arc graphics integrated with the Core Ultra processor -- there is no option to upgrade to a discrete GPU. There is a lone display option for the Spectre x360 14, but it's a good one: an OLED panel with a 2.8K resolution (2,880x1,800 pixels) and a variable refresh rate up to 120Hz. 

Meteor Lake models of the HP Spectre x360 14 are not yet available in the UK or Australia, but you can find the previous models based on 13th-gen Intel processors on sale starting at £1,099 in the UK and AU$2,039 in Australia . 

About that Ultra performance

The Core Ultra 7 155H is a member of Intel's new Meteor Lake family of chips. It introduces a new chiplet architecture that's a departure from Intel's previous-generation mobile chips. Instead of using a single slice of silicon, Core Ultra chips contain four tiles, or chiplets, that sit on top of a silicon substrate. The Core Ultra 7 155H has four tiles: a compute tile, a graphics tile, an SOC tile and an I/O tile. This tile setup not only makes the manufacturing process more efficient for Intel -- only the compute tile is manufactured on the company's latest 7-nanometer Intel 4 process -- but it also makes the chips more efficient themselves as they are able to better balance workloads across the performance and efficiency cores than previous versions' chips with Intel's performance/efficiency hybrid layout. 


The other headliner of Meteor Lake is the low-power neural processing unit, or NPU, that assists with AI task acceleration. The NPU resides on the SOC tile and handles minor repetitive tasks to free up the CPU and GPU for heavier lifts. The NPU is put to use for AI detection in image and video editing, for example, or blurring the background in a video call.

Along with the above changes, Intel also has changed the meaning of the letters in its chips' model numbers. That is, an H-series chip from the new Core Ultra series is not the equivalent of a 13th-gen H-series chip. The Core Ultra 7 155H has a base TDP of 28 watts, and the previous 13th-gen H-series chips were 45-watt parts. The new Core Ultra H-series chips are actually more in line with the previous 28-watt P series processors, although the Core Ultra 7 155H has a maximum power draw of 155 watts, which is the same as the previous H series. 

The Core Ultra 7 155H processor features six performance cores and eight efficiency cores on the compute tile. Along with the two-core NPU, the processor offers a total of 16 physical cores and 22 processing threads.

Our current suite of benchmarks does not include AI workloads, so it doesn't allow the Core Ultra-based Spectre x360 14 to flex its muscles. On our application tests, the Spectre x360 14 finished between a pair of laptops based on a Core i7-13700H CPU and RTX 4050 graphics and just behind the only other Core Ultra laptop we've tested, the Acer Swift Go 14 . Both the Spectre x360 14 and Swift Go 14 posted scores that were significantly higher than the Dell XPS 13 Plus 9320, which features a Core i7-1360P processor. The Spectre x360 14 showed smaller gains on Geekbench 6, but did top the M3-based MacBook Pro 14 on that test. It was unable to best the M3 MacBook Pro on Cinebench, however, and finished with a score much lower than the Swift Go 14, a disappointing result given the Acer and HP share the same processor. (Scroll to the end of the review to see the results of our testing.)


We expect to see larger gains in application performance from Core Ultra laptops as more software is updated to take advantage of local AI processing, but we witnessed immediate gains in the move from Intel Iris Xe to Arc graphics -- so much so that I included two laptops with RTX 4050 graphics in the performance discussion and charts below. On our three 3DMark tests, the Spectre x360 14's scores were 54% to 84% better than those of the Dell XPS 13 Plus and its Iris Xe GPU.

The Spectre x360 14 lasted nearly 10 hours on our battery drain test, which is a positive result given that it has a high-res OLED display. With a 4-cell, 68-watt-hour battery, the Spectre x360 14 ran longer than it would have if it had a smaller 3-cell battery that's commonly found in ultraportables. 

We typically don't run our gaming tests on laptops with integrated graphics, but I ran a few on the Spectre x360 14 to get a sense of the pixel-pushing capabilities of the Intel Arc GPU. On the Riftbreaker GPU test, it averaged 70 frames per second, which was a few frames faster than the Swift Go 14 but well behind the 173 fps and 198 fps that the RTX 4050-powered Acer Swift X 14 and HP Victus 16 averaged, respectively. On the Shadow of the Tomb Raider benchmark at 1,920x1,080 with highest quality settings, the Spectre x360 14 eked out an average of 31 fps. I was able to achieve a more playable frame rate of 55 fps at 1080p when I dropped the quality settings to Lowest. 

When playing games, the back half of the laptop heated up, a not unsurprising result with the exhaust vents located along the laptop's back edge between the display hinges. Unfortunately, the WASD keys were in that heat zone. On a positive note, the cooling fans were surprisingly quiet, even during the most chaotic scenes in games.


High-res 16:10 OLED display

The biggest design change to this latest Spectre x360 14 is the move from a 3:2 display to one with a 16:10 aspect ratio. So other than a general shift in size, the chassis remains relatively unchanged -- a positive for me since the Spectre laptop has been one of my favorites among Windows models for years. The all-metal chassis feels rigid and has a soft, brushed texture that's pleasing to touch. The soft textured surfaces and rounded edges give the Spectre x360 14 a luxurious feel befitting of a premium laptop. The matte black finish adds to the premium look and feel but does attract fingerprints and smudges.

The luxurious feel extends to the display hinges, which are doubly important in a two-in-one where the display rotates into a variety of positions. The hinges offer smooth action when repositioning the display yet are strong enough to keep it firmly in place. And about that display: the tall, unusual 3:2 display is gone, and in its place is a more common 16:10 panel. A 3:2 panel is well suited for business use where you want to be able to see as many lines of a document or spreadsheet on the screen as possible, but a 16:10 offers greater versatility, sitting between a work-mode 3:2 display and a widescreen 16:9 display that's best for watching shows and movies. 


The Spectre x360 14's display is an OLED panel with a crisp 2.8K resolution. It has stellar contrast with deep black and bright white levels. It offers excellent color coverage. In testing with a Spyder X Elite colorimeter, the display covered 100% of the sRGB and P3 spaces and 94% of AdobeRGB. It was also warm and bright; white backgrounds looked accurate and not overly cool and blue. I measured a peak brightness of 404 nits. The display looked great in a variety of indoor settings and remained viewable outside under an admittedly weak winter sun.

HP includes a pen in the box so you can write, scribble and draw on the screen in tablet mode when you aren't tapping on it in laptop mode. The display features a dynamic refresh rate between 60Hz and 120Hz, which resulted in smooth movement in videos and games.

HP also includes a USB-C adapter in the box because the port selection is limited. There are two USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports on the right side of the laptop, one of which is located on the back corner that's sliced on the diagonal. You'll find a combo audio jack in the other corner next to a USB-A port on the left side. That's it for ports. The included adapter offers HDMI and additional USB-A connectivity. 

First 9-megapixel laptop webcam

The Spectre x360 14 is the second laptop I've tested with a Core Ultra chip and the first with a 9-megapixel webcam. The camera can capture 4K video, and images looked incredibly crisp on the laptop's 2.8K display with accurate colors and good balance. With the AI-assisted Windows Studio Effects, you can enable automatic framing to keep your face in the frame and blur the background. And using the audio controls in the myHP app, you can enable AI-assisted noise removal for the microphone to filter out background noise. I would classify it as noise reduction, but the feature was effective in reducing background noise while keeping my voice clear and unaltered. 


The webcam also has an IR sensor so you can use facial recognition for easy, secure log-ins. And there are shortcuts on the Function keys for cutting power to the camera and muting the microphones, two features that are always welcome to protect your privacy when you aren't using the camera. A small LED glows orange on each key to let you know when the camera is off and the mic muted.

The power button also doubles as a fingerprint reader, giving you a second secure biometric login option. It's not all good news, however, with the power button. It has a small LED strip that glows white, and there is no way to disable it. It becomes an unwelcome distraction when watching a movie in a dark room.


Outside of the power button and its always-on LED, I have no complaints about the keyboard. The keys are roomy and offer snappy feedback and two-level backlighting. The touchpad is also roomy and, like the touchpads on MacBooks and the Dell XPS 13 Plus 9320 , it uses haptic feedback instead of a mechanical click. I ran into a few hiccups with the XPS 13 Plus's haptic touchpad, but it was smooth sailing and mousing on the Spectre x360 14's touchpad. I actually enjoyed using it more than a MacBook's touchpad, and I hold Apple's haptics in high regard. The Spectre x360 14's haptic response felt a bit livelier and springier than the MacBook's and remained steady and accurate throughout testing.

The Spectre x360 14 packs quad speakers that are a step above typical tinny laptop sound. I was still left wanting more from the bass response when listening to music, but shows and movies exhibited clear dialog and realistic effects.

I don't make it a practice to recommend laptops that cost nearly $2,000 that rely on integrated graphics. At this price, it's reasonable to expect a dedicated GPU for gaming or content creation. The Spectre x360 14, however, is the rare exception. With its next-gen CPU, gorgeous OLED display and premium build quality, the Spectre x360 14 is primed for a long and useful life and delivers value even at its elevated price.

HP Spectre Review

Laptop mag verdict.

While its battery life leaves a lot to be desired, the HP Spectre is one of the thinnest, most powerful and best looking ultraportables on the market.

Gorgeous design and color scheme

Bright screen

3 USB-C ports (2 with Thunderbolt 3)

Below-average battery life

No traditional USB ports

Why you can trust Laptop Mag Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test .

The HP Spectre isn't the thinnest laptop in the world anymore, but it's still super portable and gorgeous to look at. And inside, the Spectre has gotten even more powerful, thanks to new 7th-Generation Intel Core i CPUs that seems to defy expectations of how much power you can get from a system just 0.41-inches thick.

With looks that remind me more of an Italian hypercar than a consumer laptop, the Spectre seems to be as much of a thoroughbred as a Ferrari or Lamborghini, despite a much more attainable starting price of $1,070. However, if you want the HP Spectre's haute couture good looks and potent performance, you'll also have to live with its weak battery life and lack of traditional USB ports.

Design: A truly premium experience

While the Spectre's slim, 0.41-inch-thick build may grab a lot of attention, its chassis would still look great even if the notebook were a little thicker. The combo of copper and charcoal (HP calls it "ash silver") go together like champagne and caviar, and HP's minimalist premium logo is sleek and subtle while still exuding a sense of class.

I've heard some people criticize the fingerprint-loving mirror finish on the Spectre's hinge, but you know what else attracts smudges? Jewelry, watches and cars. And if a few streaks are the price I have to pay for style, just call me Mr. Clean.

The Spectre's hinges had to be specially engineered to support a system this thin. They were inspired by the type of hinges you'd get on a piano, and while they may look a little strange at first, they offer the kind of stability and artistry that feels right at home on a premium machine like this. Really, the Spectre looks like it belongs in a museum as opposed to on a desk or stuffed in a bag. It's that pretty.

Measuring 12.8 x 9.03 x 0.41 inches and weighing 2.45 pounds, the Spectre makes systems that would normally be considered slim seem fat. That includes superthin 2-in-1s like the Lenovo Yoga 910 (12.72 x 8.84 x 0.56 inches and 3.04 pounds) and our top notebook overall, the Dell XPS 13 (11.98 x 7.88 x 0.33-0.6 inches and 2.7 pounds). However, because of the Spectre's larger bezel, it has a slightly bigger footprint than the other two.

The one 13-inch system that's even thinner than the Spectre is Acer's Swift 7 , which measures 12.8 x 9 x 0.39 inches and weights 2.46 pounds. However, as you'll see, the Swift made even more sacrifices than the HP to achieve its sleek dimensions.

Keyboard and Touchpad: Deliciously snappy

Unlike many other superthin laptops, the Spectre doesn't compromise on typing comfort. In fact, the backlit keyboard on the Spectre is one of the best I've used, regardless of size. While 1.15mm of travel might sound a bit short, the keyboard's strong but not-too-stiff 65-gram actuation weight and crisp action were great. When I switched to other laptops, I often found myself longing for the Spectre's keyboard.

At 3.75 x 2.15 inches, the smooth, one-piece, glass touchpad has a plenty of room and a great feel when you're clicking it. Even better, the jumpiness issues we experienced on the original Spectre back in June 2016 have been completely resolved. This pad is completely accurate.

Display: Bold, bright and beautiful

The Spectre's 13-inch, full-HD screen can be summed up in three words: bold, bright and beautiful. When I watched a teaser for Disney's new animated short "Piper", the Spectre delighted, with great contrast between the birds' fluffy feathers and the sparkle of the ocean surf.

At 319 nits, the Spectre's brightness is among the best in its class. The 12-inch MacBook and Acer Swift 7 were in same league, at 327 and 319 nits, respectively, while Dell 's XPS 13 trailed slightly behind, at 303 nits.

The Spectre also covered 106.4 percent of the sRGB color spectrum. That's nearly the same as showings by Apple's 12-inch MacBook (107 percent) and the Acer Swift 7 (106 nits), and better than the Dell XPS 13 (94 percent).

Finally, with a Delta-E of 6.93, the Spectre's color accuracy was a bit disappointing. The 12-inch Apple MacBook (1), Dell XPS 13 (1.3) and Lenovo Yoga 910 (0.76) all feature screens with much more exact colors. With a Delta-E of 4.13, Acer's Swift 7 was somewhere in between (numbers closer to 0 are better).

Audio: Surprisingly rich

Good sound is hard to find on a laptop, and despite having almost no room for speakers, the Spectre acquits itself pretty well. As with a lot of other notebooks, there's not as much bass as I'd like, and audio can sound a bit flat at times. But when I listened to Fred Falke's "Radio Days," the Spectre's Bang & Olufsen speakers did a surprisingly decent job re-creating "Shotgun" Tom Kelly's gravelly voice and the song's rich piano chords.

Heat: Hyperbarically cool

In an attempt to keep this superthin laptop from getting sweltering hot, HP designed a "hyperbaric" cooling chamber, which uses fans to create a pocket, suck in cool air from the vent on the bottom and release hot air from the vent on the machine's back. Unfortunately, if you do more than simple web surfing and light productivity, the bottom of the laptop gets uncomfortably warm.

If you're just streaming a movie, the fans may not turn on, but temps can still get high enough that using the system on your lap is a bad idea. After the machine streamed HD video from Hulu for 15 minutes, the bottom vent measured 100 degrees Fahrenheit, which is only slightly above our comfort threshold of 95 degrees. Thankfully, the touchpad and the space between the G and H keys were significantly cooler, at 86.5 and 92.5 degrees, respectively.

MORE: Best HP Laptops

And if you're doing much more than surfing the web or watching some Netflix , the Spectre's temperature can get even higher. A number of times while I was multitasking, the space between the two bottom vents measured over 120 degrees, which is when heat stops being annoying and starts getting a bit painful. And depending on how hot things get, the fan can become pretty loud, to the point that it sometimes becomes a nuisance.

Ports and Webcam: Boldly embracing our USB-C future

Because this laptop is so thin, there's room only for USB Type-C ports, which are located on the back of the system, instead of the traditional Type-A slot. But, as opposed to the single connection you get on Apple's 12-inch MacBook, HP provides three USB-C ports, one with USB 3.1 and two with Thunderbolt 3. That means you'll never face the dilemma of choosing between recharging your laptop and plugging in a peripheral.

All three ports can be used for charging, data transfer and video out. But if you want to hook up one or more 4K displays, you'll need to use one of the two ports that support Thunderbolt 3.

If you're looking for extras such as an SD card reader or HDMI port, you're out of luck. Aside from the three USB-C connectors, the only other port is a 3.5mm headphone/mic jack.

The Spectre also features an HD webcam flanked on each side by a mic, providing crisp audio for video calls and voice chat. Unfortunately, the 1280 x 720 images that the cam captures aren't quite as sharp. Even in our brightly lit office, photos from the webcam looked grainy and made my face appear blotchy and dark.


When it comes to performance, HP simply isn't willing to compromise. Unlike competitors such as the Acer Swift 7, which feature slower Intel Core i5 Y-series processors, the Spectre gets full Intel Core i U-series CPUs. And on our review unit, which sports a 2.5-GHz Intel Core i7 chip with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, the Spectre's performance was 40 percent better than the Swift's. That performance advantage can really make a difference for people who need to multitask or do a bit of light video editing.

On Geekbench 4, which measures overall performance, our Spectre config scored 7,888. This topped numbers from all of the notebook's competitors, including systems such as the Core i7-powered Dell XPS 13 (7,287) and the Acer Swift 7 (5,519).

The Spectre also blitzed our spreadsheet test, sorting 20,000 names and addresses in OpenOffice in just 3 minutes and 35 seconds, faster than both the XPS 13 (3:44) and the Acer Swift 7 (4:45).

When asked to duplicate a DVD's worth of mixed-media files, the Spectre's 256GB SSD performed admirably, too, completing the transfer in 17 seconds, for a rate of 299 MBps. So while the Apple MacBook and Dell XPs 13 were slightly faster, at 355.9 MBps and 339.31 MBps, the Swift 7 was way slower, with a rate of 115.66 MBps.

While the Spectre isn't meant for serious gaming, you can get away with some light video editing or a bit of gaming on less demanding titles such as League of Legends. But you'll have to turn the settings down.

The notebook's Intel 620 HD graphics scored 889 on 3DMark's Fire Strike graphics test, a showing that's higher than that of an average ultraportable (645) and way better than the Acer Swift 7's score (582). However, at 927, the Core i7 Dell XPS 13 demonstrated a small lead in graphics power.

Battery Life

From the outset, the big concern with the Spectre's superthin design is that it leaves little room for batteries. Even though HP did some innovative engineering by splitting the battery into four separate sections, the Spectre lasted a disappointing 6 hours and 6 minutes on the Laptop Battery Test, which involves continuous surfing over Wi-Fi.

The average for ultraportable laptops is 2 hours longer, at 8:07, and even the Acer Swift 7 did an hour and 20 minutes better, with a time of 7:25. And that's before you get to other competitors, including the nontouch Dell XPS 13 (13:49), 12-inch Apple MacBook (9:38) and even Lenovo's Yoga 910 (10:36), which all offer significantly longer run times.

Software and Warranty

The Spectre isn't bogged down with a lot of bloat, though it does have a trial of McAfee LiveSafe. HP's Windows 10 laptop features a handful of HP utilities, such as its Support Assistant app.

HP backs the Spectre with a one-year warranty on parts and labor. See how the company fared in our Tech Support Showdown and Best and Worst Brand ratings.

Configurations and Competitors

The Spectre starts at $1,070 for a configuration that has a 13.3-inch nontouch display, Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. There's also our $1,250 review configuration featuring a Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD.

At any of these configurations, HP's laptop offers more value than Apple's 13-inch MacBook Air and 12-inch MacBook. Both of Apple's systems offer significantly better battery lives, and the 12-inch model has a sharper screen than the Spectre, but those machines offer lesser specs for the money. The 12-inch MacBook starts at $1,299 and comes with a slow-footed Core m3 CPU, only one port, and the same 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD the Spectre provides, all for $130 less. The 13-inch MacBook Air, which is likely to be updated or discontinued soon, offers a Core i5, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB PCIe SSD, all for $1,199, but it has a mediocre 1440 x 900 resolution.

Dell's XPS 13 is the Spectre's main competitor, and with a starting price of $800, its barrier to entry is much lower too. While the Dell system might not be as thin, its bezel-free Infinity display still looks stunning, and it has a wider variety of ports, including one Type-C port with Thunderbolt 3. The XPS 13 also boasts significantly better battery life than the Spectre, lasting 9:11 for the Core i7 version and a whopping 13:49 for a nontouch Core i5 model. However, if you want an XPS 13 with similar performance to our Spectre review unit, you're looking at a price closer to $1,100.

Bottom Line

With world-class good looks, boundary-pushing thinness, a brilliant display and, now, more powerful 7th generation Intel Core i performance, the HP Spectre has a lot going for it. Unfortunately, those highlights are countered by weak battery life and a shortage of creature comforts like an SD card reader and a touch-enabled display.

This makes comparisons between the Spectre and high-maintenance hypercars hard to deny. Thankfully, unlike its road-going spirit animals, the Spectre is pretty reasonably priced, starting at just $1,070. The Dell XPS 13 remains our favorite notebook overall because of its long battery life, nearly bezel-free screen and strong port selection. However, the Spectre is still the undisputed leader in cool, and a strong choice for anyone who wants the ultimate in ultraportable style.

Hp spectre x360 review, hp spectre x360 14: the bottom line.

Ranked No. 15 in our Best Laptops of 2023 rating, the HP Spectre x360 14 has a high starting price. However, for high performance and even higher build quality in a 2-in-1 convertible, very few laptops come close to the Spectre. The unique security and design features help offset the premium this HP demands.

Detailed, high-quality design

Starting prices are higher than competitors

Battery life is only average

Ever since laptop manufacturers switched to metal cases, most laptops look similar. So it takes creativity to push laptop design to another level, especially when that push comes from a company like HP that sells average-looking laptops in bulk. The Spectre x360 14 is a rare machine that manages to be both pretty and powerful. It will appeal to laptop customers seeking to be seen in the coffee shop and who want unique features that some other companies don’t offer.

As a high-performance 2-in-1, the Spectre x360 14 can’t match the raw power of the M1-powered MacBook Pro and MacBook Air . However, with Core i7 processors and up to 32 gigabytes of memory, the Spectre comes close. It also sports an attractive, bevel-cut case, built-in privacy screens, a smart camera, and bright, high-resolution touch screens. The starting price of $1,519.99 will put off many business and casual users. However, the Spectre x360 will appeal to others, including artists and creatives who don’t need the extra power of a dedicated graphics card.

For the ultimate 2-in-1 laptop , there appears to be no better choice than the HP Spectre x360 14. It’s expensive, but the Spectre’s price is the main complaint from most professional reviewers. They love the impressive performance, beautiful displays, and cutting-edge design. Power users who need the flexibility of a 2-in-1 will be more than happy. Casual and business users will overspend on this laptop because they’re unlikely to take advantage of its performance and unique features.

HP Spectre x360 14: Price

The Spectre x360 14 starts at $1,519.99 (for the 14t-ea100 model). Even the base model is well-equipped with an Intel Core i7-1195G7 at a peak of 5.0 GHz, 12 MB cache, and integrated Iris Xe graphics. It has 32 GB of Intel Optane DDR4 memory, a 512 GB Intel SSD, a 13.5-inch HD IPS display at 1920 x 1280 pixels, and an HP stylus pen. Upgrading to a brighter display with the built-in privacy shield, more graphics memory, and a 1 TB SSD costs $1,789.99. Fully loaded with the high-res display and 2 TB SSD, the Spectre costs $2,259.99.

HP Spectre x360 14: Design

The Spectre x360 14 has a unique case with diagonally cut edges and bronze accents along the base and display bezel. This lends an angular look that’s very distinguishable among laptops. While the bronze accents are only on the Nightfall Black color, the Spectre also looks good in Poseidon Blue (accented in silver) or a monochrome Natural Silver. There’s a USB-C port installed on the base’s three-sided edge, whereas most laptops have only a 90-degree edge. Reviewers note this helps keep plugged-in devices from getting tangled.

As a 2-in-1, the Spectre x360 14 can be used as a tablet by folding the display 360 degrees behind its closed position. It can also stand upside down in a “tent” mode or held vertically. Reviewers say it’s a little too heavy to be used as a tablet for very long, but the included stylus pen feels good to hold and to use. HP also includes a soft sleeve for the laptop with a pen holder.

At 0.67 inches thick and just over 3 pounds, the Spectre is not the lightest or slimmest 2-in-1 laptop on the market. But the build quality and small manufacturing details like the triangular pattern on the speaker grill make this HP worth its premium price for many users.

HP Spectre x360 14: Performance

Reviewers found the Spectre x360 14 to match or beat competitors like the Lenovo Yoga 9i , Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 , and even the HP Envy x360 13. However, it fell a bit behind in other tests, some of which included video rendering and file copying. Despite the increasing levels of shared system memory that HP allocates to the Intel Iris Xe graphics when you upgrade, gaming performance was below average in some tests. Photoshop performance was better, and this is where the Spectre shines as a laptop and a tablet that’s best used with the included pen.

Reviewers found the quad-core Core i7 ran cool and without slowdowns for most tasks, although the laptop heats up under heavy workloads. For illustration programs, streaming, and web browsing, the Spectre delivers more than enough power for everyday life.

HP Spectre x360 14: Displays

The Spectre x360 14 offers three touch-screen displays with a 13.5-inch diagonal size and a 3:2 aspect ratio, which is taller and more square than the 16:10 ratio in the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 . The two high-definition displays use IPS technology for consistent brightness at wide angles. They have a 1920 x 1280 resolution at either 400- or 1,000-nit brightness. Only the 1,000-nit HD display comes with a privacy screen. The best display is the 3000 x 2000 OLED that can cover the entire DCI-P3 color gamut and has controls to switch to Adobe RGB and sRGB color modes. The display can also switch modes depending on the ambient lighting. Reviewers love the clarity and saturation of this OLED display.

HP Spectre x360 14: Ports and Audio

HP uses a dedicated power input, which frees up its two USB-C ports to run at full Thunderbolt 4 speeds. A USB-A 3.2 port is included on the left side. An SD card reader joins the power and two USB-C ports on the right side, one of which is on the angled edge toward the back to make it easier to plug in peripherals.

Sound comes from four Bang & Olufsen speakers mounted above the keyboard and at the bottom of the base. Reviewers generally like the sound quality. Software lets you choose from preset equalizer settings to balance the tone to your desired media.

HP Spectre x360 14: Keyboard, Touchpad, and Webcam

Reviewers like the keyboard's look and design, especially the typeface on the keys and the “snappy” feel. There are some notable differences from other laptops, however. The right Control key is replaced by a fingerprint reader, where some of the Function keys along the top are instead dedicated keys for the power and webcam shutter. The touchpad is large and responsive according to most reviewers.

The Spectre’s 5-megapixel webcam is the most advanced we’ve seen on a laptop. It uses software with unique distance- and subject-tracking capabilities, and a beauty mode applies live filters to soften the skin. On a call, the software crops the image as a photographer would when taking a headshot, so your face is zoomed and centered automatically. In one click, you can turn the laptop’s display into a virtual ring light with adjustable brightness and color to better illuminate your face. When not on a call, the camera app can suggest that you move further from the screen or give your eyes a break based on times and distances you set.

HP Spectre x360 14: Security 

In addition to a fingerprint reader, microphone mute button, and webcam shutter, the webcam has more advanced security features. For example, HP's GlamCam software can detect if a person is looking over your shoulder and will either notify you or blur the entire screen. The webcam can also lock the laptop when you leave and wake it up when you come back using the Windows Hello facial recognition login feature. A privacy screen, called HP Sure View Reflect, can darken up to 95% of light coming from the screen to prevent people from viewing it off to the side.

HP Spectre x360 14: Battery Life

HP promises up to 17 hours of battery life with the HD display and 11.5 hours with the OLED display. However, reviewers saw 12 to 14 hours with the HD display and less than eight hours using the OLED display. This is about average among small laptops. HP offers “in-bag detection” that senses if the laptop has been stored in a backpack or briefcase so it can prevent itself from overheating. This theoretically should help preserve the battery.

CES 2024 | HP announces 2024 Spectre x360 14 with 2.8K 120 Hz OLED and makes it available the very same day

HP announces 2024 Spectre x360 14 with 2.8K 120 Hz OLED and makes it available the very same day (Source: HP)

While most laptop announcements are simply announcements, HP is double dipping this year with both an announcement and the immediate availability of its latest Spectre x360 14. The new 2024 model has been refreshed both inside and out when compared to the original 2021 version .

Aside from the obvious CPU upgrade to Meteor Lake, the most notable upgrade lies in the touchscreen which is now a proper 14-inch screen size. The original 2021 version was blasted for its 13.5-inch screen despite having "14" in its name, but the 2024 version rectifies this and more by also incorporating a 120 Hz variable refresh rate to extend the relatively short battery life of OLED laptops. The soldered RAM is now much faster (7467 MHz vs. 4266 MHz) while the new 9 MP webcam should offer crisper images than pretty much any other laptop webcam currently in the market.

All the changes come with slight increases to weight and footprint when compared to the 2021 Spectre x360 14, but the significant upgrades arguably make up for them.

The 2024 Spectre x360 14 is now available at both HP.com and Best Buy starting at $1500 USD in Black, Blue, and Silver color options. Its announcement and availability coincide with the 16-inch version of the same design.

Metrics details

Currently, the value of oral selective estrogen receptor degraders (SERDs) for hormone receptor-positive (HR+) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative (HER2-) advanced breast cancer (aBC) after progression on ≥ 1 line of endocrine therapy (ET) remains controversial. We conducted a meta-analysis to evaluate progression-free survival (PFS) and safety benefits in several clinical trials.

Materials and methods

Cochrane Library, Embase, PubMed, and conference proceedings (SABCS, ASCO, ESMO, and ESMO Breast) were searched systematically and comprehensively. Random effects models or fixed effects models were used to assess pooled hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for treatment with oral SERDs versus standard of care.

A total of four studies involving 1,290 patients were included in our analysis. The hazard ratio (HR) of PFS showed that the oral SERD regimen was better than standard of care in patients with HR+/HER2- aBC after progression on ≥ 1 line of ET (HR: 0.75, 95% CI: 0.62-0.91, p = 0.004). In patients with ESR1 mutations, the oral SERD regimen provided better PFS than standard of care (HR: 0.58, 95% CI: 0.47-0.71, p < 0.00001). Regarding patients with disease progression following previous use of CDK4/6 inhibitors, PFS benefit was observed in oral SERD-treatment arms compared to standard of care (HR: 0.75, 95% CI: 0.64-0.87, p = 0.0002).


The oral SERD regimen provides a significant PFS benefit compared to standard-of-care ET in patients with HR+/HER2- aBC after progression on ≥ 1 line of ET. In particular, we recommend oral SERDs as a preferred choice for those patients with ESR1m, and it could be a potential replacement for fulvestrant. The oral SERD regimen is also beneficial after progression on CDK4/6 inhibitors combined with endocrine therapy.

Peer Review reports


In the United States, approximately 60-70% of women with advanced breast cancer (aBC) are hormone receptor-positive (HR+) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative (HER2-) [ 1 , 2 , 3 ]. Resistance to treatment, acquisition of novel mutations, and altered gene expression are the major challenges in the management of aBC [ 4 , 5 ]. There are established guidelines for first-line treatment of these patients, but a consensus has not yet been reached regarding the choice of second-line treatment [ 6 ].

Endocrine therapy (ET), with either fulvestrant (Fulv) or aromatase inhibitors (AIs), plus a cyclin-dependent kinase 4/6 inhibitor (CDK4/6i) is the recommended first-line standard of care for patients with HR+/HER2- advanced breast cancer [ 7 ]. Compared with endocrine monotherapy, the combination can obtain a higher response rate and progression-free survival benefit [ 8 , 9 , 10 ]. However, the development of resistance to the treatment of aBC is frequent, and its treatment is primarily palliative [ 11 ] In general, there are three main strategies after the failure of CDK4/6i treatment: diversion to chemotherapy, endocrine therapy alone, or combined targeted therapy [ 12 , 13 , 14 ]. Currently, there are no recommended guidelines for the optimal ranking of these options. In any case, ET is still an important treatment strategy.

Estrogen receptor 1 mutations (ESR1m) are one of the common mechanisms of endocrine resistance, accounting for up to 36% of metastatic breast cancers [ 15 , 16 ]. Selective estrogen receptor degraders (SERDs) can bind to estrogen receptors and induce their degradation [ 17 , 18 ] and are considered one of the main ways to address endocrine resistance. Fulvestrant, as an intramuscular SERD, is not only the first-line or second-line treatment option for HR+/HER2- aBC [ 19 , 20 ] but is also a choice for patients with ESR1m, who are still sensitive to it [ 15 , 21 , 22 ]. In recent years, oral SERDs, with their higher bioavailability and pharmacokinetics, have been continuously developed to address the limitations of fulvestrant intramuscular formulations [ 23 ]. However, the value of oral SERDs in patients with HR+/HER2- advanced breast cancer remains controversial. EMERALD [ 24 ] and SERENA-2 [ 25 ] showed positive results, while the other two clinical trials, AMEERA-3 [ 26 ] and acelERA [ 27 ], failed the study endpoints.

In the present meta-analysis, we aimed to assess the value of oral SERDs in patients with HR+/HER2- advanced breast cancer after progression on ≥ 1 line of endocrine therapy.

Search strategy and data extraction

The systematic review of literature and meta-analysis was conducted according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines [ 28 ]. The corresponding PRISMA checklist is shown in Supplement 2 . A systematic and comprehensive literature search was conducted using Embase, PubMed, and Cochrane Library . Conference proceedings from major oncology meetings (ASCO, SABCS, ESMO, and ESMO Breast) from 2020 up to November 2023 were also carefully reviewed. The following search string was used: “(breast OR mammary) AND (cancer OR carcinoma OR malignant OR neoplasm OR tumour) AND (hormone receptor-positive OR HR-positive OR HR OR estrogen receptor-positive OR ER OR ER-positive) AND (HER-2- OR HER2- OR ERBB2- OR HER-2 negative OR HER2-negative OR ERBB2 negative OR human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative) AND (metastasis OR metastases OR metastatic OR advanced OR recurrent OR stage IV) AND (oral selective estrogen receptor degrader OR SERD OR Giredestrant OR Camizestrant OR Imlunestrant OR Elacestrant OR Amcenestrant).” Records from the included studies were screened independently by two investigators. In cases of disagreement, the third investigator was consulted to reach a consensus.

Details about the title, publication date, study design, and trial name were extracted. All relevant randomized controlled trials were identified as the recommendations of the Cochrane Collaboration [ 29 ]. When duplicate publications were identified, only the latest data were extracted in our study. Other details about the first author, country, sample size, menopausal status, oral SERDs used, dose of oral SERDs, treatment regimens used in the control arm, previous treatment regimen, ESR1m status, hazard ratio (HR), progression-free survival (PFS), median progression-free survival (mPFS) and side effects for each arm were extracted. The primary outcome was progression-free survival, which was defined as the time from randomization to death or disease progression, whichever occurred first. The proportion of patients who achieved an overall response according to the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours (RECIST) was selected as a secondary outcome [ 30 ]. An exploratory analysis was conducted based on the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events, version 4, reporting the proportion of patients with grade 3-5 adverse events [ 31 ]. All data included in the study were extracted independently by two investigators.

Study selection

Studies had to satisfy the following inclusion and exclusion criteria: (I) phase II or III randomized clinical trials (RCTs) including patients with HR+/HER2- aBC after progression on ≥ 1 line of ET; (II) comparison of oral SERD-treated patients and patients treated with standard-of-care ET; and (III) the publication provided PFS and HR for the experimental and control arms. Systemic reviews, case reports, single-arm studies, exploratory studies, and retrospective studies were excluded. If multiple publications were associated with the same clinical trial, only the latest and complete randomized controlled trial was included.

The primary objective of the study was to compare the efficacy of oral SERDs with standard-of-care ET in patients with HR+/HER2- aBC after progression on ≥ 1 line of ET. The secondary objective was to analyse the subgroup of patients in the population that might benefit from oral SERDs. We planned the subgroup analysis for the following subgroups: patients with disease progression following previous use of CDK4/6 inhibitors or Fulv; patients with ESR1m; patients with visceral metastasis; comparing oral SERDs with fulvestrant; and comparing oral SERDs with fulvestrant in patients with ESR1m.

Statistical analysis

Global PFS was calculated using a random-effects model or fixed-effects model and reported as pooled hazard ratios (HRS) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs). If the 95% CI did not include 1.0 and the two-sided threshold was P < 0.05, the pooled HR was considered statistically significant. The I 2 value was employed for the heterogeneity of included studies. When I 2 > 50%, significant heterogeneity was considered established, and the random-effects model was adopted; otherwise, the fixed-effects model was used. When heterogeneity was high in the pooled results, sensitivity analysis was performed after every single study was excluded. All statistical analysis methods were performed using Review Manager (version 5.3). The Cochrane Collaboration’s Risk of Bias tool in Review Manager (version 5.3) was employed to assess the risk of bias for each eligible study.

A total of 386 potentially relevant manuscripts and 2 additional abstracts were sorted by using the search string mentioned before. Of these, after reviewing the titles and abstracts, 373 manuscripts were excluded. We then performed a full-text review for the remaining 15 articles, 11 of which were excluded for nonconformity with the present inclusion criteria. Eventually, 4 articles from 4 trials were considered eligible for the meta-analysis. The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis (PRISMA) flowchart is shown in Fig. 1 .

Characteristics of studies

Finally, our study involved 4 clinical trials published between February 2022 and November 2023, focusing on different endocrine treatment regimens for HR+/HER2- advanced breast cancer, and included a total of 1,290 patients (Table 1 ). The oral SERD arms included elacestrant (EMERALD), camizestrant 75 mg/camizestrant 150 mg (SERENA-2), amcenestrant (AMEERA-3), and giredestrant (acelELA). The control arms included fulvestrant, anastrozole, letrozole, exemestane, and tamoxifen. All trials compared oral SERDs to standard-of-care ET in patients with HR+/HER2- aBC after progression on ≥ 1 line of ET.

Progression-free survival

In the whole population, patients with HR+/HER2- advanced breast cancer treated with oral SERDs had significantly improved PFS compared to those treated with standard-of-care ET (HR: 0.75, 95% CI: 0.62-0.91, p = 0.004; I 2 : 52%, p = 0.08; Fig. 2 A). For enrolled patients with disease progression following previous use of CDK4/6 inhibitors, the oral SERD regimen was significantly better than standard-of-care ET (HR: 0.75, 95% CI: 0.64-0.87, p = 0.0002; I 2 : 48%, p = 0.10; Fig. 2 B). In HR+/HER2- ESR1m aBC, the two treatment regimens compared, namely, oral SERDs resulted in a better PFS versus standard-of-care ET (HR: 0.58, 95% CI: 0.47-0.71, p < 0.00001; I 2 : 42%, p = 0.14; Fig. 2 C). Regarding enrolled patients with ESR1 mutations, results in arms of oral SERDs were significantly better than in arms of fulvestrant (HR: 0.47, 95% CI: 0.36-0.62, p < 0.00001; I 2 : 0%, p = 0.41; Fig. 2 D). Regarding patients who had previously failed treatment with fulvestrant, oral SERDs as monotherapy were significantly superior to standard-of-care ET (HR: 0.67, 95% CI: 0.47-0.95, p = 0.02; I 2 : 0%, p = 0.93; Fig. 3 A). In patients with visceral disease, the results in arms of oral SERDs were significantly better than the results in arms of standard-of-care ET (HR: 0.60, 95% CI: 0.48-0.74, p < 0.00001; I 2 : 33%, p = 0.22; Fig. 3 B). The results in arms of oral SERDs were significantly better than those in arms of fulvestrant (HR: 0.65, 95% CI: 0.54-0.78, p < 0.00001; I 2 : 0%, p = 0.76; Fig. 3 C).

Adverse events (AEs) of grade 3 or higher were more frequent in the oral SERD regimen than in standard-of-care ET (HR: 1.40, 95% CI: 1.03-1.90, p = 0.03; I 2 : 0%, p = 0.99; Fig. 4 ). The proportion of treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) leading to discontinuation was 6.3% (Elacestrant) vs. 4.4% (SOC) in EMERALD's two treatment arms. The most common adverse event was nausea. The proportion of drug discontinuation caused by TEAEs in the three treatment groups of SERENA-2 was 14.9% (camizestrant 75 mg), 21.9% (camizestrant 150 mg), and 4.1% (standard-of-care ET), respectively; common adverse events were photopsia and sinus bradycardia. In AMEERA-3, the proportion of TRAEs ≥ Grade 3 was 4.9% in the experimental arm and 0.7% in the control arm. The most common adverse event was nausea. In acelELA, the incidence of AE ≥ Grade 3 was 12% (giredestrant) vs. 8.6% (physician’s choice of endocrine monotherapy); the most common adverse event was hepatotoxicity.

Bias assessment

In all trials included, the overall risk of bias was low (Supplement 1 Fig. 1). Since these trials were conducted with an open-label design, performance bias that did not affect the results may exist. There was no obvious publication bias (Supplement 1 Figs. 2 and 3).

Our study showed that the oral SERD regimen was superior to standard-of-care ET in patients with HR+/HER2- advanced breast cancer after progression on ≥ 1 line of ET. However, the characteristics of these patients were complex, so it is crucial to select the characteristics of those patients who are likely to have sustained benefits.

Patients with ESR1m develop resistance to ET and exhibit worse overall survival [ 32 , 33 , 34 ]. Our meta-analysis showed that for patients with ESR1 mutations, outcomes in the arms of oral SERDs were significantly better than those in the arms of standard-of-care ET. Surprisingly, in these four clinical trials, oral SERDs were able to provide PFS benefits in ESR1m patients. In addition, patients with ESR1m showed a trend of OS improvement in Elacestrant (HR = 0.59; p = 0.03). AIs not only enhance the acquisition of ESR1 mutations in aBC, but patients with ESR1 mutations also showed a worse prognosis in AI treatment [ 35 ]. However, patients with ESR1 mutations remained sensitive to fulvestrant [ 15 , 21 , 22 ]. As an intramuscular SERD, fulvestrant binds to estrogen receptors and induces their degradation, [ 17 , 18 ] so it still plays a role in patients with ESR1 mutations. A pooled analysis of patients with ESR1 mutations in the EFECT and SoFEA trials (115/383) found no significant difference in PFS in the Fulv group (3.9 months versus 4.1 months) [ 36 , 37 , 38 ]. However, the clinical utilization of Fulv is limited by its intramuscular formation. In the Elacestrant and SERENA-2 trials, the arms of oral SERDs were significantly better than the arms of fulvestrant (HR: 0.47, p < 0.00001). In addition, its better bioavailability and patient preference for oral medication may lead to better compliance. Patient tolerability of the drug also needs to be considered. The overall toxicity of oral SERDs was found to be greater in our analysis. However, considering that a proportion of patients in the control arms were on AI and tamoxifen regimens, the toxicity of AIs and tamoxifen was lower than that of Fulv [ 39 , 40 , 41 ]. Therefore, this does not mean that oral SERDs are more toxic than Fulv. Moreover, treatment resistance to Fulv leading to disease progression remains a major concern for HR+/HER2- aBC. Therefore, both additional endocrine therapy and effective combination therapy are clinically necessary [ 15 , 16 ]. Data from the Elacestrant and acelELA trials also support oral SERD regimens for patients who failed Fulv therapy. Thus, oral SERDs are recommended in HR+/HER2- ESR1m aBC after ET ≥ 1 line progression, and oral SERDs could be a potential replacement for Fulv.

For HR+/HER2- aBC patients who progressed after first-line treatment with ET combined with CDK4/6i, the oral SERD regimen also had a statistically significant PFS benefit. In the event of disease progression during the use of CDK4/6is, ET-based regimens remain an appropriate option [ 12 , 13 ]. Patients' menopausal status, tolerance to drugs, and previous treatment regimens will affect the subsequent selection of endocrine agents [ 42 ]. These enrolled patients had previously used one or two ET regimens, so it is still necessary to find new endocrine agents. Camizestrant therapy may be a new option for these patients. The median PFS in the oral SERDs group was 7.2 (75 mg) and 7.7 (150 mg) months, respectively, while that in the Fulv group was only 3.7 months. Even in the subgroup with previous use of CDK4/6i, there was a significant improvement in PFS [median PFS 5.5 (75 mg) and 3.8 (150 mg) months vs. 2.1 months]. However, the absolute benefit in Elacestrant was very small (median PFS 2.8 months vs. 1.9 months). In ESR1m aBC patients previously treated with CDK4/6i for ≥12 months, elacestrant had a median PFS of 8.6 months and SOC of 2.1 months, which was a clinically and statistically significant improvement. This suggests that a possible indication for elacestrant may be the duration of previous CDK4/6i [ 43 ]. In addition, in those patients with visceral metastasis, oral SERDs also showed advantages (HR: 0.60, P < 0.00001). Endocrine therapy is the preferred option for HR+ breast cancer patients even in the presence of visceral metastases [ 44 ]. Compared with endocrine monotherapy, the combination can obtain a higher response rate and progression-free survival benefit [ 45 ]. Chemotherapy is recommended for patients with visceral crisis. However, chemotherapy is more toxic and causes many side effects in patients [ 46 ]. In contrast, oral SERDs show better efficacy in patients with visceral metastasis and can also reduce the serious side effects caused by chemotherapy.

EMERALD and SERENA-2 showed positive results in these four randomized controlled trials, while the other two trials, AMEERA-3 and acelERA, failed the study endpoints. Due to the heterogeneity of enrolled patients and differences in control settings, indirect cross-comparisons between different trials should be undertaken with caution. First, prior treatment regimens after disease progression varied across the four trials. In the SERENA-2 trial, 31.3% of patients had previously not received ET in the advanced setting, whereas in the other three trials, patients had previously received at least one or two lines of ET. Studies have shown that monotherapy with Fulv had advantages in PFS compared to aromatase inhibitors or tamoxifen monotherapy [ 47 , 48 ]. In the control arm of AMEERA-3 and acelERA, the proportion of patients treated with Fulv was higher (89.8% and 75%, respectively), which may have resulted in prolonged mPFS in the control group. In addition, all patients in the SERENA-2 control group received Fulv, but previous Fulv was not permitted for aBC patients. In EMERALD, however, 30.4% of patients had previously been treated with Fulv; in AMEERA-3, the corresponding value was 9.7%, and in acelERA, it was 26.19%.

Our study is the first to evaluate the value of oral SERDs in patients with HR+/HER2- aBC after progression on ≥ 1 line of endocrine therapy. The characteristics of the population that may benefit are also analysed. Especially for patients with ESR1m, oral SERDs are advantageous. Further screening of advantaged oral SERD groups for stratified treatment is the future development trend. The value of SERDs may not be limited to patients in advanced settings. Studies such as CAMBRIA-1 [ 49 ] are being conducted to assess the potential of oral SERDs in early-stage breast cancer. In addition, oral dosage forms are more convenient. This can save manpower and material resources to a certain extent, and the compliance of patients will be better. It is believed that it will have good application prospects. There are several limitations to our study. First, this was not a network meta-analysis, and we could not directly compare all drugs or drug combinations with each other. As a result, a certain degree of precision was lost. In addition, we could not evaluate the overall survival (OS) benefit due to the unavailability of data. Although OS is the "gold standard" for efficacy evaluation in cancer clinical research, it has certain limitations in practical application. OS as the primary endpoint requires a large sample size, and clinical development is difficult. It is affected by death from nontumour causes. For tumour types with long survival, the duration of the study is extremely long. Therefore, alternative end points are often used for those patients with long survival, and the FDA currently supports the use of PFS as an end point. However, these limitations are unavoidable at present. At present, there are relatively few studies on oral SERDs, and it is hoped that more clinical trials will follow to confirm our experiments.

The oral SERD regimen has a significant PFS benefit compared to standard-of-care ET in patients with HR+/HER2- aBC after progression on ≥ 1 line of ET. In particular, we recommend oral SERDs as a preferred choice for those patients with ESR1m, and it could be a potential replacement for fulvestrant. The oral SERD regimen also benefits after progression on CDK4/6 inhibitors combined with endocrine therapy.

DEI Is Under Attack. Here’s How Companies Can Mitigate the Legal Risks.

  • Kenji Yoshino
  • David Glasgow

hr specter reviews

Concrete steps companies can take to protect their DEI efforts in a shifting legal landscape.

In June 2023, the Supreme Court effectively ended race-based affirmative action in higher education in the Students for Fair Admissions ( SFFA ) case. On the heels of that decision, newly empowered activists have brought a barrage of challenges against workplace DEI efforts. When it comes to DEI today, the authors predict that neither side will “win.” Rather, as the law inevitably evolves in a more conservative direction, the new legal standards will be absorbed into the field of DEI, transforming it as an enterprise. While this shift will occur organically, smart organizations can avoid a lot of pain and expense by thinking about how to adapt in a more intentional way. The authors identify three criteria that make DEI programs most risky and offer solutions to help organizations mitigate legal risk while maintaining the core project of building a more just future.

What happens when the irresistible force meets the immovable object? Leaders committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are facing this paradox with fresh urgency these days.

U.S. strike in Baghdad raises specter of wider regional war

Iraq says the strike violated agreements between baghdad and washington. the pentagon described it as ‘necessary’ and ‘proportionate.’.

BAGHDAD — A U.S. airstrike here on Thursday killed an Iran-linked militia commander and risked accelerating the regional fallout from Washington’s support for Israel’s military operation in Gaza, even as the Biden administration scrambles to contain the bloodshed.

Explosions occurred in the central part of the city, rattling windows and prompting Iraqi authorities to close off nearby streets. Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba, a militia that has claimed several attacks on U.S. forces, said its deputy commander of operations in the Baghdad region, Mushtaq Talib al-Saidi, also known as Abu Taqwa, was killed at a logistical support headquarters on Palestine Street.

While the United States has targeted militia-affiliated locations in Iraq and Syria several times in recent months, an American operation in such a central location of Iraq’s capital is exceedingly rare. Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba falls under the authority of Iraq’s commander in chief, and the army responded swiftly — and in anger — saying agreements between Baghdad and Washington had been violated.

A Pentagon spokesman, Maj. Gen. Patrick Ryder, described the strike as “a necessary and proportionate action” against a militant leader “actively involved in planning and carrying out attacks against American personnel.” An “associate” of Abu Taqwa also was killed, Ryder said, though he did not identify the individual. The general noted that no civilians were injured in the strike and no infrastructure was damaged, a claim The Washington Post could not independently verify.

Thursday’s violence underscored the tension that has gripped much of the Middle East since early October, when fighting erupted between Israel and Hamas. In recent days, incidents in Lebanon and the Red Sea have heightened alarm that the fighting in Gaza will seep beyond the Palestinian enclave’s borders and draw the United States into a far larger conflict with groups armed by Iran.

Ryder declined to say whether the United States had notified the Iraqi government before the strike. Asked if Washington had breached any agreement with Baghdad, he said that the Pentagon retains the right to self-defense anywhere U.S. forces are threatened.

Photographs purportedly taken at the scene of the airstrike and released by Sabereen News, a militia-run outlet, show weapons fragments consistent with the U.S.-made Joint Air-to-Ground Missile, or JAGM, a new missile that is set to replace older munitions such as the Hellfire. The Post was unable to independently verify the images’ authenticity.

When nearby residents learned that the blast was caused by American forces, some expressed fears that more violence would follow.

“It’s an indication that peace is not lasting,” said Sarah Jamal, 27, who lives several blocks from the attack site. “It started in Syria, then Lebanon, then Iran and now here. We’re being dragged into this, and we have no say.”

As black smoke rose from residential alleys where blood and human remains lay scattered, some people cried. Others promised revenge against the United States. “No American soldier shall stay in Iraq!” one man yelled, firing his gun into the air.

About 2,500 U.S. personnel are based in the country to prevent a resurgence of the Islamic State terrorist network, which on Thursday claimed responsibility for a deadly attack in Iran a day earlier. Another 900 American personnel are spread across several outposts in Syria, tasked with the same mission.

The Biden administration says it is working to prevent the war in Gaza , which began when Hamas militants killed 1,200 people in attacks throughout Israeli border communities, from spreading to other parts of the Middle East. But in Iraq and Syria, Washington’s support for Israel’s actions — as Palestinian deaths have surpassed 22,000, according to the Gaza Health Ministry — has presented local militia groups with fresh incentive to try to dislodge U.S.-led coalition troops.

U.S. officials have logged about 120 attacks since Oct. 17, with most carried out with one-way attack drones, rockets or both. Late last month, after a militia attack in northern Iraq left a U.S. service member in critical condition, the Pentagon launched retaliatory strikes and said they probably killed a number of militants. Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani, who last year backed the need for U.S. troops in Iraq to prevent the regeneration of the Islamic State, said the U.S. retaliation in that instance killed an Iraqi service member and injured 18 other people, including civilians.

Thursday’s attack was likely to increase pressure on the Iraqi government to hasten an end to the coalition’s presence, 2½ years after their combat mission officially ended there. Iraq’s military spokesman, Yahya Rasool Abdullah, described the strike as “no different from terrorist acts” and said that the army held the U.S.-led coalition responsible for an attack on a group that fell under its command.

“We consider this targeting a dangerous escalation and an assault on Iraq, far from the spirit and text of the authorization and the work for which the international coalition exists in Iraq,” Abdullah said in a statement.

The question of ongoing U.S. troop presence has been under discussion as part of a joint dialogue between Iraqi and American officials. Al-Sudani has signaled in recent days that it may be time to end the presence of U.S. and allied forces in Iraq, citing the increasing capabilities of Iraqi troops.

While al-Sudani’s government favors an arrangement that sets the two nations on even footing, rather than one that gives the appearance of continuing to host a military that invaded the country two decades earlier, Washington has been wary of fully withdrawing from one of its most high-profile theaters at a time of growing regional tensions.

“This has put the [Iraqi] government in a very difficult position. The impact is that it’s hardening public opinion” against the remaining U.S. troop presence, said Sajad Jiyad, a fellow at the Century Foundation.

Thursday’s strike was probably conceived as a means to signal there will be a cost for any future attacks on U.S. troops, Sajad said. But the strategy, he added, had “a lot of potential for escalation, a lot of potential for miscalculation.”

The strike came almost four years to the day that President Donald Trump ordered the killing of Iran’s most influential military strategist, Maj. Gen Qasem Soleimani, as he left Baghdad’s airport with his Iraqi counterpart, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis . It was a decision that pushed Iran and the United States to the brink of war on Iraqi soil, as Tehran launched ballistic missiles against U.S. troops and an incandescent Iraqi parliament voted in favor of America’s expulsion.

On Thursday, some Iraqi officials signaled it was time to finish the job.

“We urge the Iraqi government to take decisive steps to end the presence of the so-called international coalition in Iraq,” said Qais al-Khazali, who heads the influential Iran-linked Asaib al-Haq militia. This, he said, would involve “cutting off the pretexts used by the Americans to prolong their stay on our land and in our skies.”

The conflict in Gaza has sparked escalation on fronts across the Middle East, as Iran-linked groups opposed to the U.S. presence and Israeli policy launch their own retaliatory attacks and, in Lebanon, a suspected Israeli airstrike killed a high-ranking Hamas leader, Saleh Arouri on Tuesday. In a speech watched across the region, Hasan Nasrallah, leader of the Lebanese militant group and political party Hezbollah, vowed “response and punishment.”

In Israel, U.S. envoy Amos Hochstein met with Israeli officials as part of ongoing efforts to broker a deal that could avert a wider conflict across the Israeli-Lebanese border.

Deepening the quagmire, Houthi militants detonated a one-way, unmanned surface vessel in a shipping lane off the coast of Yemen on Thursday, a U.S. admiral said, despite what the White House described a day earlier as a “very serious warning” over the need to desist.

Vice Adm. Brad Cooper, commander of U.S. naval forces in the Middle East, told reporters in a briefing that the use of an unmanned surface vessel by the militants was “of concern” and a “new capability.” The vessel was launched from Yemen and “clearly had the intent to do harm,” Cooper said.

A coalition of more than 20 countries has joined the United States under the umbrella of Operation Prosperity Guardian in a bid to secure shipping routes in the Red Sea, officials have said. No commercial vessels have been hit since the operation began, though some have come close. Eleven drones, two cruise missiles and six anti-ship ballistic missiles have been taken down since Dec. 18, and U.S. forces sank three fast boats on Dec. 31 after they opened fire on American helicopters.

U.S. sailors have also brought down 61 missiles or drones launched from Yemen since October, and there are now significantly more warships and reconnaissance flights over the southern Red Sea than there have been in years, Cooper said.

On Tuesday, Cooper visited the USS Carney, a destroyer that has responded to numerous Houthi attacks in recent weeks, and awarded U.S. sailors Combat Action Ribbons. The military award denotes they were in direct combat, though administration officials have said that it is not clear if U.S. ships have been directly targeted or simply nearby when attacks are launched.

Cooper said that U.S. military personnel have taken the “appropriate approach of protecting themselves and downing these missiles.”

“Easy call,” he said, “as was the fact of awarding a Combat Action Ribbon to the sailors who were involved in this.”

Lamothe and Horton reported from Washington.

A previous version of this article incorrectly said Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba is under the command of the Iraqi army. It, like the army, is under the authority of the Iraqi commander in chief as part of the wider armed forces. The article has been corrected.

Israel-Gaza war

Secretary of State Antony Blinken left late Thursday to the Middle East for the fourth time since Israel launched its war in Gaza. The trip comes on the heels of a U.S. strike that killed an Iran-linked militia commander in Baghdad and a suspected Israeli killing of a Hamas leader in Lebanon that further raised fears of a wider war in the region.

More than 20,000 people have been killed in the Gaza Strip during the war between Israel and Hamas, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.

Hostages: More than 100 held in the Gaza Strip have been released. Here’s what we know about those freed by Hamas so far .

Oct. 7 attack: Hamas spent more than a year planning its assault on Israel. A Washington Post video analysis shows how Hamas exploited vulnerabilities created by Israel’s reliance on technology at the “Iron Wall,” the security barrier around the Gaza Strip, to carry out the deadliest attack in Israel’s history.
