Black Friday is still a few weeks away, but many major retailers have unleashed sale prices early. If you’ve been toying with the idea of a new PC, the HP Spectre x360 13 — our pick for best Windows laptop — is currently $250 off at Best Buy. That brings this high-end model’s price down to just $1,000.
HP’s Spectre x360 13 has been our top pick for a Windows laptop for quite awhile now, but it’s well deserved. This convertible Ultrabook has a gorgeous gem-cut chassis with dual Thunderbolt 3, USB-A, and a microSD card reader, plus Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5 for easy connectivity.
The keyboard is comfortable and stretches from edge to edge, there’s a Precision touchpad for accurate pointing, and the speakers actually pump out quality audio despite the thin build. A fingerprint is accompanied by an IR camera for easy and secure logins through Windows Hello.
Though the Spectre x360 is available with an FHD display, this particular model steps it up with outstanding 4K AMOLED. The bezel is thin, the screen has excellent color reproduction, and the anti-reflective layer cuts down on glare. And, of course, the included active pen allows you to jot notes or sketch images. This is especially useful thanks to the laptop’s convertible design.
With a 10th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD, you won’t have any issues cutting through productivity work. This is a great laptop for school, work, or casual use thanks to the 4K screen. And, thanks to Best Buy Black Friday savings, it’s currently $250 off the regular price.
