Review: HP Spectre x360 13

Don’t expect to find revolutionary changes with the new HP Spectre x360 13. The latest version of this venerable laptop—it dates to HP’s acquisition of VoodooPC in 2009—continues the company’s tradition of steadily improving a fine machine.

The competition requires it. You could argue that VoodooPC, a company that enjoyed a reputation for packing high-end performance into the slimmest possible package, kicked off the whole ultrabook movement. Buyers looking for such a rig today can choose from any number of machines, including the sweet Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon and Dell XPS 13. Like the Spectre, they cater to mobile power users by offering solid benchmarks in svelte packages that weigh less than 3 pounds.
