Mark Coppock/Digital Trends

If you’re in the market for a premium lightweight laptop that delivers performance and style, HP’s Spectre convertibles are excellent options thanks to an all-metal body and sleek, gem-cut design. And for the upcoming Memorial Day holiday in the United States, you can save $200 on HP’s latest premium notebook lineup, including the Spectre and Envy line.

For the maximum portability, HP’s Spectre x360 13-inch is now $200 off and starts at $949 instead of the regular $1,149 retail price. This laptop boasts a 13.3-inch touchscreen display that works with the HP Pen for writing, drawing, or annotating on the display. At the base configuration, you’re getting an 8th-generation quad-core Intel Core i5-8265U processor, a full HD resolution panel, 8GB RAM, and 256GB NVMe solid-state drive. If you need stronger performance, more storage, or additional memory, HP also allows you to configure your system prior to purchase and still maintain the $200 savings as part of the Memorial Day promotion.

If a 13-inch display is too small, HP’s Spectre x360 15-inch is also on sale for the U.S. holiday. Like its smaller sibling, the 15-inch variant is also discounted by $200, and prices start at $1,299 with the promotion applied instead of the normal $1,499 retail price. Unlike the smaller model, the Spectre x360 15-inch also comes with discrete graphics, giving you better performance for tasks like video editing and gaming. Here, you’re getting Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics with the slim Max-Q design included in the price. The base configuration ships an Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. You’ll be getting a 15.6-inch touchscreen with 4K resolution here, and HP also includes its active digitizing pen for writing on the display.

Both sizes of the Spectre x360 come with a 360-degree rotating hinge, which allows the laptop to easily convert between a clamshell notebook form factor and a tablet. And if you don’t need a convertible laptop, HP’s Envy 13 laptop comes with a premium build quality in a notebook-only form factor with a 13-inch touchscreen display. The Envy 13 starts at $729, a savings of $270 from the regular retail price of $999.
