    So my impressions on the new Spectre..
    + Core i processors up to i7 in that slim body? awesome.
    + upward facing speakers!
    + up to 9.5 hours of battery (even if only 6 hours in real life, seems pretty decent for a PC this thin)
    + 2 of 3 USB C has thunderbolt
    - Hinge looks weak
    - Too much bling, looks like this LV bag:

    Those usb c 3.1 though... I wish my spectre charging port is usb c 3.1 instead of the usual standard. And how nice it'd be to have spectre weight below 3 pound :)

    My concern is cooling in that small form factor.

    I already experience thermal throttling on my i7 where it will throttle down to around 13W TDP in gaming (and suffer frame rate reduction).

    It's beautiful to be sure, and at the lighter weight, I wonder how it feels as a tablet. A related concern, though, is whether the bottom will be as easy to remove as the previous model? I also suspect, with such a major step in form-factor, that the first release of the new model will have a few hardware issues to resolve. I'd probably wait for the second version.

    with the lack of a touch screen, the 13.3 misses as a tablet, but scores on the size and internals. Well Done, HP.

    OH!!!! My bad -- I had assumed it was an x360 convertible! I'll definitely stick with mine, thanks!

    I didn't see where it wasn't a convertible, but it did mention the lack of the touch screen to meet the thin requirement.

    It's not convertible for sure, no touchscreen and that new hinges design. i think the mission to make thinnest and lightest kinda prevent that (touchscreen are heavier and bulkier after all :p)

    If it's not a convertible or touchscreen, I think the "Spectre" name should be changed to something else.
