At an investor presentation on Thursday, NBCUniversal officially unveiled its upcoming streaming service, Peacock. Giving potential users a glimpse of they can expect from…
It’s cold outside, South Africa. And we know that all you want to do is curl up with some popcorn and hot chocolate and binge the hottest series on your favourite laptop, the HP Spectre x360.
Why is it your favourite, you ask? Well, HP’s latest convertible laptop-tablet hybrid has more going for it than just its slender and elegant profile, and thoughtful design. The HP Spectre x360 only recently made its debut in South Africa, giving users a platter of delicious features, a perfect accompaniment to a night in.
So dim the lights, and begin your adventure.
And don’t worry that you’ll can’t see the Spectre x360’s keyboards in the dark. The backlit keyboard ensures that its visible even in the darkest of environments.
With its aluminium chassis, the 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch Spectre x360 are both compact and light enough to comfortably sit on a lap throughout your viewing sessions.
And if lap-top viewing isn’t for you, pivot the Spectre x360’s chassis by 270 degrees, transforming it into a self-standing screen. Place it on your bed, on a pillow, on a table, or even in the kitchen while you make your favourite snack.
Pivot it further — the full 360 degrees — to enjoy watching video on the most powerful tablet you’ll ever own.
A nearly bezeless display compliments its adaptable too, featuring eight million pixels, which pushes the clarity of your media over the edge. That’s a resolution of 4K, or 3840×2160, giving videos true-to-life definition. A selection of Intel’s 8th Generation Core processors will power through any content you throw at it too.
The Spectre x360 will make light work of streaming at that quality, with support for dual band Gigabit WiFi 802.11ac. It’s the perfect machine to get the most from your fibre internet connection.
The display is fully touch responsive, so playing, seeking and pausing that video at just the right moment is now easier than ever before. And don’t worry about scratching the screen, because it’s slathered in scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass.
If you want to connect the HP Spectre x360 to a bigger screen to enjoy the entertainment with your family, you can through a USB-C port with Thunderbolt support on the 13.3-inch model, and a full-sized HDMI port on the 15.6-inch model.
But while video is one thing for enjoying movies, audio is just as important.
HP has employed industry leaders Bang & Olufsen’s audio technology on the Spectre x360 13.3-inch model, giving users quad speakers with custom tuning.
Adjust the volume without halting your viewing with a nifty volume rocker on the side of the Spectre, too.
Deep into the action? Forget to plug in that power cable? No need. The HP Spectre x360 features up to 16 hours of battery life on a single charge, giving you more than enough juice for even the longest airplane journey across the world, or all the Harry Potter movies in a row.
And that’s the perfect pairing, because using the HP Spectre x360 as your winter entertainment companion really is like magic.
The HP Spectre x360 is available from the HP Store from R26 999.
