HP Spectre Folio 13t Review: Why This Leather-Encased 2-in-1 Device is a Must-Have

This 13.3-inch 2-in-1 touchscreen has been getting a lot of praise for its long battery life, stylish design, and good performance. It is available in two colors: cognac brown and Bordeaux burgundy, and crafted very nicely out of “chrome-tanned leather”. Modern innovation and timeless design are merged effortlessly in the creation of the HP Spectre Folio 13t.

Use this versatile device to adapt to your needs. It’s thin, light and can easily be adjusted to a laptop position, tablet position, or forward position for watching movies or videos. Some configurations even feature built-in 4G LTE so that you can connect safely and securely, no matter where you are, while decreasing the risk of someone accessing your personal details through public Wi-Fi.

Keyboard and Dimensions

The keyboard is full-size island style and comes in either Luminous Gold or Nightfall Black. Regardless of your color choice, you’ll still get an HP Wide Vision Full HD IR camera w/ dual array digital microphone. There is also pen support for the display, although the stylus comes separately. The dimensions of this device are 12.6 x 9.23 x 0.6-inches (W x D x H), and it weighs only 3.28-lbs.

The 13.3-inch display has a 1920 x 1080 resolution and is colorful and responsive. Much of its vividness is due to its ability to reproduce 119% of the sRGB gamut, which is better than some of the other 2-in-1 devices in its price and size range. The HP Spectre Folio 13t averages 313-nits. While you can use the pen, you can also just use your fingers, as the display is 10-touch capacitive and highly responsive.

Another reason why this 2-in-1 is better than a lot of others out there is its good island-style keyboard. The keys are evenly spaced and backlit. There are only 1.3 millimeters of travel between each key. The touchpad is pretty decent too, whenever you want to use this as a regular laptop. It measures 3.7 x 2.1-inches and offers fluid, accurate responses.
