On paper the new HP Spectre x360 2019 should be the ultrabook to rule them all, but in practice... things aren't quite so simple.

They should have just removed the old power cord option and thrown in a Thunderbolt 3. Solving the power button and having to haul around a power block issue.

DELL / ASUS / LENOVO / ACER /SAMSUNG will outlive anything HP has or will ever make. I hate and avoid dealing with HP be it PCs or printers. Most technicians just wanna cry of the issues one has to face. I'm not the exception. If your HP lived for more than 7 years or even 10 years, you can comment that.

One thing i like to,say for hp mouse is that the best mouse in my opinion was the trackpad offered in HpG4-1303 AU. Whi h has very little to no deadzone. Then it has that disable feature in the top left corner of mouse where double tapping it turns off the trackpad so any palm movment on trackpad wont let the mouse move. Then there was separate buttons and that thing is so lovely that you use right hand for trqck pad and use left hand to click button. That was the excelent choice hands down. No other laptop trackpad is as good as that one. These days we get that smooth finished trackpad where buttons are integrated yet markings were made to distinguish trackpad and buttons which is not at all feel like mouse. Hell i cant even place two finger on the trackpad else it will go into berserk mode making pointer act weird or wont let the pointer move.

I do not recommend HP, their battery sucks, it normally fails in less than 2 yrs. Talking from experience

Yeah, the HP I bought 'made it' to two years (maybe 1.5?), but it was HOBBLING. Keys falling off keyboard, software buggy and slowing down/stalling like crazy (and the only things I ever used it for was internet, watching movies, and word processing). Yikes!

Too bad you can not upgrade the Ram because it is soldered on to the motherboard.

there's also a big heating issue with the x360 when you put the graphics card under load which is likely due to their horrible graphics drivers that don't do clean switches between the dedicated and integrated cards.

Please Please Please - before you waste your money on an HP Spectre - google "HP Specter x360 screen flickering" not only does this laptop battery life suck - there are days when it takes hours to get the screen to stop flicking so that you can even see the screen. Forget about the fix of starting in safe mode because once your screen start flicking, bleeding and tearing - you can not see or read anything when you restart. Then once the screen is clear - your too scared to restart because you don't know if it will start flicking again. Now I did love my Spectre 360 4k 15inch when I first brought it but now after one year I regret every buying the HP Spectre and this will be my last HP purchase...

The worst laptop to buy...Purchased this HP 13 360...diamond cut in March 2019....and it generated heating issue within one month usage....(means laptop emits high level of heat 45 Celsius /113 Fahrenheit and shutdown automatically)...and tested by HP engineer...it is as per design ....heat is normal....m stuck with this piece of junk....No support from HP at all

Just contact hp again. Maybe even call their PR i had to send my laptop back to them twice as they failed to detect the first issues. Also you have a lot of rights when buying stuff online. Do a little bit of research

Purchased on after watching your video on a hunch that your video rant didn't match much of everything else out there review wise. I then spoke to a few people who owned one and they had positive results and were pretty happy as well. Now, I'm a happy user after a week of using it. I do appreciate the review though as it gave me pause to make sure about what I was getting into based upon your review. I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who hate this HP. Great thing is we have reviews to help us out and many choices available.

I think Linus is getting this thing wrong. I mean yes, the bezels are a bit big (the top one is big because of network hardware being hidden up there to ensure good connectivity) and yes the screen has a little bit of a slow reaction time, but srsly, I want to use that thing and not complain that a pixel turns off just not fast enough. And yes, synaptics is not great but you can switch to precision if you just can't stand it at all. But the rest is ridiculous. The power button is just fine, I have never ever heard someone complain about a power button... I mean... Just no... Complaining about the pen holder. For real. First you say you don't want a holder at all, now you say you want one. Get your s**t together and decide. Also, every single other 2in1 does not have a holder and there it is just fine. The same thing with the hinge. Every other 2in1 has the same one and it is just fine...

just bought a new 2019 "hp envy x360" laptop... I had to return the first [hp envy x360] laptop that I purchased due to screen flickering. The replacement laptop, (which ive had for less than a week), had its right hinged come off. the hp laptop that I purchased in 2016 was pretty good, but this new model sucks. (this new laptop also had screen flickering since the moment I purchased it, but I decided that I would just deal with it)

I disagree with the pointer, it is completely fine and cleaner than other computers. Maybe this guy needs new fast camera.

Why there is nothing about how the pen works? Does palm rejection work good on the screen? I think it is very important things, more than trackpad issues.

I've never had any issues that you've talked about on my HP Spectre x360 that I have that came out in 2016. I got it on Black Friday & i love that it's an all aluminum build. It's a solid laptop besides the degraded battery life. It's touchscreen but doesn't have pen support which I wish it did. I think I would get another Spectre next year depending on what HP does for the next generation model

Yeah the 'pointer trails' are down to the limitation of your eyes. It's called 'persistence of vision'.
