Dedicated tablets seem to be dying a death these days, but laptop/tablet hybrids really seem to be coming into their own. Now, just weeks after the waves of announcements at CES, a brand new one has started popping up around the web. Meet the HP Spectre 13 x360.
At first glance it looks remarkably like Lenovo’s recently announced Yoga 3 because of the 360-degree hinge, but aside from the fact that both machines run Windows 8.1 that’s where the similarities end.
Apparently the Spectre 13 x360 will come with a 13.3-inch QHD resolution display, 8GB of RAM, 256 GB or 512GB of storage, an i5 or i7 CPU, Miracast, Intel’s WiDi streaming, three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, MiniDisplayPort, and a 10 hour battery life.
Surprisingly HP has opted to run the machine with Intel’s fifth-generation Core Broadwell-U processor, rather than the more efficient Core M processor that can be found in the Yoga 3.
It’s not been officially announced by HP yet, but the information about the Spectre 13 x360 was unearthed by Tablet PC Italy, and Lilliputing managed to find a listing for the machine on HP’s website. With that in mind you can probably expect an announcement fairly soon.
