Power and Style: How to get the most out of the HP Spectre x360
In the past few years, HP has pretty much established their high-quality premium laptops, especially with their Spectre and Envy sub-brands. The HP Spectre x360, in particular, is a redesigned 2-in-1 laptop that’s available in 13 and 15-inch. It recently caught our attention and here are a few cool things you can do to make the most out of it:
Feel safer by using its smart security features
You no longer have to cover your PC camera with tape or paper, instead, you can simply use the camera kill switch that’s located at the side of the laptop. Also, make sure to register your data in its security features such as the easy to access fingerprint scanner and IR camera for quicker unlocking while still having maximum security.
Another surprisingly useful security feature is the Sure View integrated privacy screen that protects prying eyes around you from seeing your screen clearly. To activate this, just press F1.
Familiarize Microsoft Windows 10 (with Windows Hello)
If you’re already used to the Windows 10 interface, then you’ll get an easier time to move around this laptop. Moreover, you can take it to a more personal level with pre-installed features and enhancements like Windows Hello and Cortana.
Turn it 360 when watching videos in 4k
With its premium design and 2-in-1 capabilities, its good to take advantage of turning it 360 when watching your videos or looking at slideshows. Just flip it and start binge-watching comfortably without having to worry about the keyboard getting in the way. Note that you can take more advantage of its 4k capabilities too!
When you feel like ditching the trackpad, use the optional improved pen
Sometimes you just get those moments when the trackpad feels draggy. If that’s the case, then hype things up by using the pen or just touch the screen to write, draw, and navigate. It’s good to know that the new pen technology prevents unintentional inking and includes reduced lag when writing.
Charge up and worry less for the day
The HP Spectre x360 packs incredible power, allowing you to create more. With up to 22:30 hours of battery life, you can work, watch more, and spend more of your time totally untethered. Charging also comes quicker with HP’s Fast Charge technology.
Convert it to tablet mode for creative tasks at work or at school
With an 8th Gen i7 Intel Core processor, it can handle even your heavy creative tasks. And what better way to keep the thoughts rolling than using it as a tablet while still getting the PC performance you expect. Also, the pen is a really smooth support for that.
