HP Spectre x360 16 review: The right 2-in-1 at the wrong time

The specter of Intel's latest mobile CPUs looms over HP's otherwise fine 2-in-1.

HP Spectre x360 16
  • Expert Rating

    3.50 / 5


  • Attractive and sturdy design
  • Excellent OLED display option
  • 1080p webcam


  • Keyboard and touchpad are merely fine
  • 11th-Gen Core processor is obsolete
  • Lackluster battery life

Bottom Line

The HP Spectre x360 packs an amazing optional OLED display and a long list of features, but its perks are undercut by disappointing processor performance.
