It’s been a while since I’ve updated the status of my long term HP Spectre x360 Convertible Laptop that I purchased back in May and the reason for that is because I haven’t really had many issues with it. It’s been working wonderfully and has been crash free. I did mention once about the fan becoming super loud at one point, but I’m pretty sure that only happens when I’m using the laptop while charging.
For the most part, I’ve been very happy with the HP Spectre x360 Convertible Laptop. Updates happen frequently which I appreciate which helps keep the laptop trouble free. Aside from the occasional loud fan, there is still the tiny issue of the pen jumping around on certain apps, but I haven’t really been using it all that much it’s just something minor.
I think the HP Spectre x360 Convertible Laptop has been one of the best laptops I’ve used in recent years, even better than the Dell XPS 13 that I had before it. While that laptop was praised by many media outlets, I had so many issues with it that I ultimately had to return it due to a system killing issue.
With that said, I highly recommend the HP Spectre x360. While mine is a 2018 edition and there is a new version of the laptop out now, the old version is still a great buy if you can find it on sale as it will do pretty much everything you need it to do aside from playing games that need beefier hardware. It’s still plenty fast with its Core i7 8th Gen processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD.
As a side note, I never thought I’d buy another HP again until this. HP back then weren’t very good but based on what I’ve read and experienced so far, they’ve gotten much better in recent years and the HP Spectre x360 Convertible Laptop has proven that much to me. As a tip, I’d probably suggest you buy this at the Microsoft Store though as a “Signature Edition” in order to avoid a lot of the crap ware that might come pre-installed if you buy it anywhere else.
