A multi-use wonder
It's all in the name. The new HP Spectre x360 is made for go-getters (we're already counting Instagram style stars like Chriselle Lim and Meg Biram as fans) looking for one device that functions as both a computer, an entertainment gadget (hello Netflix binge!) and tablet. The hinge on this design allows for 360-degree flexibility. Use it as a regular laptop for when you're working, flip the screen back to prop it up and watch your favourite shows, or fold it over completely to convert it into a tablet. Did we mention it looks beautiful in every mode?

Long life
The 15-hour battery life is possibly our favourite thing about this laptop. Thank the large-capacity but lightweight 57.8W battery paired with the powerful 7th Generation Intel® Core™ processor – essentially, that translates into us being able to work on-the-go. Save your low-battery panic for your smart phone instead.

Sized to perfection
No, thinner isn't always better. This applies to a plethora of things: models, bread, pizza, hair, cats… But when it comes to gadgets that will most likely be taken everywhere, we could do without the additional weight and space. The HP Spectre x360 measures only 13.8mm in height, with a 13.3-inch screen and weighs about 1.3kgs. The ideal size to chuck into a tote bag.

Keep in store
With 256GB of storage, there's more than enough room to keep your precious photos and videos without compromising the computer's performance speed.

Speaker of champions
Instead of two, the new Spectre x360 has four HP Speakers and HP Audio Boost to satisfy your audio needs. Thanks to tuning by Danish electronic and audio experts Bang & Olufsen, these speakers are fancier than an Iggy Azalea song.

HP Spectre x360 is available now with prices starting at RM5,199.
