In this article, we compare both of these laptops head-on to help you decide better. 


While both of these laptops features a convertible design, the latest XPS 13, however, has a twist of its own. It is completely detachable, unlike the previous models, and comes with an Optional Magnetic Folio Case to be transformed into a laptop. 

Spectre x360, on the other hand, lives by its name as it boasts the conventional convertible design that is seen in most 2-in-1 laptops. Unlike the new XPS 13, the display stays attached to the keyboard and needs to be pushed all the way back to be used as a tablet. The Gem Cut design also makes back an appearance where the chopped-off corners hold plenty of connectivity options.

Talking about connectivity, HP managed to cram in a USB-A port on this which is quite rare to see on slim and light laptops these days. Other than that, it has 2 Thunderbolt 4 ports, a Micro SD slot, and a headphone jack which is also a plus to have. As for the XPS 13, it gets 2 Thunderbolt 4 Ports and a Fingerprint reader at the top for easier accessibility. And that’s pretty much it.


Another impressive thing about the XPS 13 is its 11 Megapixel 4K Camera on the back. While it doesn’t have that much of an implication for productivity, it is perfect for taking high-resolution photos and videos if you prefer. The Front Facing Camera is a 1080p one with decent camera quality for virtual meetings. While the Spectre x360 doesn’t have a World Facing Camera, the 5 Megapixel QHD camera on the front looks super impressive in terms of quality. Together with their GlamCam software, users get plenty of customizability for this thing.

With that out of the way, let’s talk about displays. The 13inch Panel on the XPS 13 has a native resolution of 3K that can get as bright as 500 nits. With 100% sRGB Coverage, details, and color quality, this laptop looks amazing. Spectre x360 takes it up a notch with its super vibrant OLED panel that is absolutely stunning for consuming media or working in bright lighting conditions. The 3 by 2 aspect ratio is another perky feature that gives users a lot of vertical space to work with.

And lastly, both of these ultrabooks have been refreshed with the latest Intel chips that you have the freedom to customize according to your preference and budget.

Final Verdict

From the XPS 13 you are getting a detachable ultrabook with a quality back camera, whereas the Spectre x360 will give you a sleek design, a superb OLED panel, and plenty of connectivity options. So which one of these will you be going for?”
