Bought for university and absolutely love.
I bought this on Boxing Day after doing extensive research. Although not perfect, so far I am very pleased with the new I7 8th Gen 15.6" Spectre. I come from Dell and Microsoft laptops and Surface tablets and this was my first HP.
I have not experienced the problems others have noted in terms of build quality. So far everything works as promised. I have not noticed any appreciable coil whine, although, in a dead silent room I "think" I may hear it. Admittedly, my hearing isn't what it used to be. The fan does run perhaps a bit more than some of my other computers but I can hear the fan in my Microsoft Surface as well. I can confirm my Spectre has the Toshiba SSD. I haven't compared it to the Samsung drive but I find it plenty fast enough for me.
The screen is very nice and the computer is fast. I have noted that the fonts on some windows are not as crisp as I would have hoped but I am wondering if that is because the resolution of the font is not as high as the screen resolution. I am also impressed with the battery life which is much better than my two year old Surface. Included in the box were both the touch pen and the leather sleeve.
The touchpad is huge and, frankly, probably bigger than it needs to be. I haven't had any problems with inadvertently touching it when typing, but I do find that when I right click I am often not far enough to the right, so I left click instead.
I am picky about speaker quality. The Bang & Olufsen speakers are decent, but if you are expecting HiFi quality, you will be disappointed. They are better than the speakers on my older Dell Latitudes and the Surface, but don't come close to quality headphones or my Bose external speakers.
Overall the computer is gorgeous. I am really impressed with the aluminum case and the copper accents. Weight is pretty good too. I separately bought from HP the matching wireless mouse (HP Z5000) and it looks great too
If I had anything that I would characterize as a complaint is that HP doesn't appear to make a dock specific to the Spectre. The docks on their website do not technically support the Spectre and there is inconsistent information on the forums as to whether they do. A proper dock which would permit charging as well as dual 4K external displays via the Thunderbolt port would be the icing on the cake. I am still looking for an after-market solution.
The other shortcoming is the lack of a built in Ethernet port. When not inconvenient, I always prefer a wired connection over wireless for both reliability and speed. I suspect that in order to keep the laptop thin they dispensed with the port. However, a simple USB to Ethernet adapter will suffice in the absence of a Dock.
Overall, I would recommend the Spectre for someone looking for a high quality, fast, 4K 15.6" laptop and doesn't want to spend the extra coin for the Dell XPS. It's a good laptop that will satisfy the vast majority of users.
It's a great laptop, especially when compared to others on the market - can't find the same specs for the price. Beautiful design and its fast. Love the sound quality!
Hope it'll last me a long time!
Honestly one of the best convertibles you can buy on the market
Really nice laptop with a great look. Just make sure to update all the drivers and BIOS with HP Support Assistant as it fixes some issues. Only thing i dislike is the coil whine when the keyboard back light is on but i cant hear it unless in a very quiet room
When I looked for reviews for this model , every one of them uses Samsung PM961 NVMe MZVLW512HMJP SSD which is much faster than what i got with my unit which turns out to be a toshiba nvme drive. Luckily I am well within the return period.
This beautiful laptop from HP is almost perfect (as far as design and specs go). After having it for a couple days, I am aware of its flaws, but still decided to keep it, because I have not found anything similar or better in the price range (need a 15" 4K screen and a quad core CPU with full 4-lane Thunderbolt 3).
Pros: Absolutely amazing metal unibody design, crisp 4K screen with vibrant colors, dedicated GPU, quad-core CPU, good quality speakers for a laptop from Bang & Olufsen, RAM and SSD upgrade possibility.
Cons: Audible coil whine during GPU and SSD operation, really grainy webcam and a pretty loud fan during high load.
This Laptop is great. spend a little bit extra and get a lot in return.
Sound is surprising for a laptop, loud and not distorted.
4k screen is awesome,
the pen for this model feels better than the 13 inch version. i can actually see myself drawing with it for fun.
track pad is as smooth as it gets.
it starts up as fast as my phone.
battery life is OK, but a dedicated graphics card and 4k res will do that.
all in all i would recommend. although defects with this line are prevalent so keep the packaging intact when starting it up for the first time.
The design and the specs of this computer are excellent. The screen is awesome, the quad core processor is very fast and the port selection is great. However the QC of this computer is less so. I bought 2 of these. Both had a coil whine problem (buzzing and chirping sounds emanating from the motherboard / CPU noticeable in a quiet environment). The first computer's right speaker didn't work out of the box (according to HP a motherboard connection problem). The second computer's webcam was very blurry and completely out of focus (according to HP the computer needs an entire new screen panel). If you find one that is flawless it's a keeper, but you have to do all the quality checking yourself.
One doesn't have too many choices of high end 4k lightweight laptops nowadays. This one is excellent as far as the design and specs go, aluminum body, beautiful screen, fast 8th get i7 (quad-core) CPU, Nvidia GPU, upgradable RAM (up to 32GB) and upgradable SSD (up to 2TB currently). However HP's quality control seriously lacks. I purchased 2 of these laptops, and will be returning both. One had a non-functional right speaker (known motherboard issue according to the forums), the other one has a completely out of focus and blurry webcam. Both of them also had pretty loud coil-whine, which is also present on the 13" HP x360 with the same i7-8550u CPU. Not really willing to gamble on HP anymore. I've found out in HP forums that there were users who went through 8 faulty machines (this and the previous gen) before switching to another manufacturer. The reliability track record of Spectre x360 is pretty low. I will therefore also be buying my next PC from a different manufacturer.
The design and performance of this laptop is really awesome
I was really excited to move to a premium laptop from my 5 year old laptop, but for a brand new laptop this expensive, I have been largely disappointed
A lot of laptop reviews give this one ridiculously high praise...It might just be the unit I have but here are my problems:
-Annoying coil whine with just internet browsing. Fans also become annoyingly loud with just google chrome. This is one of my biggest issues b/c the reason I wanted a higher end laptop was to avoid this major issue.
-Lag in response time - with scrolling or filling out forms (my crappy old laptop did not have this issue) or clicking on buttons, etc
-I don't love the keyboard like most reviewers seem to - i feel like i have to press a lot harder on it than I'm used to and this tires my hand faster. I also seem to be more prone to spelling mistakes with this keyboard, and i believe it has to do missing a letter while typing due to how hard you have to press the keys
I missed the time to return or exchange this one by one day, so I'm stuck with an expensive laptop thats not at all living up to the hype and will have to shortly send it in to HP b.c of the problems.
The screen is nice, but whats does that do if things lag in response and the noise is so annoying. I will say it does start up fast, windows hello is fast and convenient, there are some good things with the laptop I just think that the hype is greater than the reality. It might just be my model, so if you get a bad one, exchange it asap or just go with a different laptop.
