The Spectre x2, HP is a hybrid with a detachable two-in-one design. The tablet and keyboard are black, grey and silver with hints of polished chrome that complement each other without becoming distracting. The detachable keyboard attaches via HP’s proprietary magnetic connector and features a solid metal back, which gives it a sturdier typing experience.
The x2 has a 12-inch touch screen which is bright and relatively accurate, but the picture does not look as rich or colourful as panels on similar systems. It comes with two Bang & Olufsen speakers built into each side of the tablet. HP has embraced the next wave of PC connectivity. That means instead of a traditional box-shaped USB Type-A port or micro USB, you get two slick new reversible USB Type-C ports.
