#HPSpectrex360 #HPEnvy13 – HP’s Spectre x360, Envy 13 And Envy All-In-One 27 Upgrades Make For Some Premium Devices : HP is updating its lineup of premium laptops, including the Spectre x360 and the Envy 13. The company has put both devices under cosmetic refreshes while extending their battery life.
Not to be left behind, the HP Envy all-in-one 27 will also get an updated design and Intel’s latest processors. The trifecta is HP’s more high-end offering that has powerful specs and sophisticated design.
HP Spectre x360
The update carries the namesake but is in fact much more powerful and sleek. HP was able to design the updated Spectre x360 to be much more thinner and more slender.
The folding hinge stays in the updated Spectre x360 but now sports a 13.3-inch 1080p edge-to-edge display, allowing for a much narrower design than the previous iteration.
HP claims 15 hours of total battery life for the Spectre x360 between charges, a 25 percent bump from the previous one. There are two configurations: either a seventh-generation Intel Core i5 or Core i7 with up to 16 GB of RAM and an internal storage of 1 TB SSD.
It’s available now for $1,159. Expect to shell out more for the Core i7 option. The most affordable configuration will set you back $1,049. You get a Core i5 processor with 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD.
HP Envy 13
The HP Envy 13 doesn’t get an edge-to-edge display, but HP packed it with a host of updates under the hood.
HP loaded the Envy 13 with the same battery inside the Spectre x360, which HP claims can last up to 14 hours. In comparison, the previous model only offered a maximum 10-hour battery life, a far cry from 14 hours in this one, that is, if HP delivers.
The updated HP Envy 13 will offer either a 1080p display or a 2,560 x 1,440 panel, an option absent in the Spectre x360. It will feature front-firing speakers for improved audio quality in real-world situations.
