And when you’re stuck in a life-or-death virtual battle, per-game assignable profiles and definable dedicated gaming keys always keep you in the fight.

HP SPECTRE X360

IT Show Price: From S$1,899

Thirteen per cent thinner and 11 per cent lighter than its predecessor, HP’s second-generation Spectre x360 convertible laptop touts a Full-HD (1,920 x 1,080), 13.3-inch display with a slim bezel.

Computing power comes courtesy of 7th-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, and users have the option of up to 1TB of solid state drive storage, which offers plenty of storage for high-resolution multimedia content.

Assign passwords to the scrapheap of technological progress, thanks to a Full-HD infra-red camera that supports Windows Hello Facial Log-In for secure, easy log in.

To help users power up quickly, HP’s Fast Charge system recharges the batteries to 90-per-cent capacity in 90 minutes. Connectivity options abound — you get two USB Type-C ports with Thunderbolt support and a USB Type-A 3.0 port for connecting to the latest peripherals.

Apart from functioning as a conventional notebook, the Spectre’s geared hinge offers a welcome boost to versatility. Tent mode lets users share content easily, stand mode is ideal for watching movies, and tablet mode makes surfing the Internet a breeze.
