HP Spectre x360 PC 2022
The HP Spectre x360 PC has the latest in audio and visual advancements, as well as a touch display that will be familiar to smartphone users. When your Windows 11 PC comes with a touchscreen, you’ll be able to take notes or sketch with an optional digital pen and use multi-finger gestures, pinch-to-zoom, double tap, and press and hold for quicker navigation – and to create and easily manipulate drawings and other content. The digital pen, touchscreen and voice typing capabilities of Windows 11 make it easier to work the way you prefer with features such as Snap Assist and multiple desktops.
When you collaborate with others or do pitches on-screen, you’ll do it with a 5MP IR intelligent camera for picture-perfect clarity. Backlight Adjustment autocorrects video images in any environment where you may be taking a call, while bi-directional AI noise reduction, directional beamforming mics and quad speakers complete a superior sound experience for your calls and chats on Microsoft Teams.
