HP Spectre X2 (2017) review: A more refined Surface cloneThe HP Spectre X2 is, in many ways, the ideal way to counteract Microsoft's Surface lineup. It retains the slick, high-end style that we loved from the original model, while improving things a bit to make it much more user friendly. Its unique design is a way for HP to show it can make premium devices on par with the likes of Apple. But while it's a better Surface Pro competitor than before, there's still plenty of room for improvement.Summary.The latest Spectre X2 offers plenty of refinement over the last model, but HP still needs to fix its battery and touchpad issues.Hardware.Like HP's recent Spectre laptop, the X2 is almost in love with its bold style. Its black-and-copper, all-aluminum aesthetic evokes something like a high-end wristwatch more than it does a PC. It's a wonder to behold, and it feels pretty great too, thanks to that smooth metallic case. The X2 is just as sturdy as the last model, with no sign of flexing in its body. You can feel the confidence of HP's designers at every angle.
