If you are looking for one of the best laptops this sale has to offer, look no further than this Spectre model. HP recently came out with the 2019 Spectre x360 laptop and we liked it enough to give it an astounding 10 out of 10 in our review. The configuration being discounted in this sale is actually the 2018 iteration of that same computer, however, which is why the price has dropped so significantly. Don’t let it’s age fool you, though, this 2018 2-in-1 laptop is still a really good piece of tech. With an Intel Core i5 processor, 8 GB of RAM, and a 256 GB SSD, this convertible laptop will still work great.

Normally priced at $1,240 direct from the HP website, a $350 discount drops the price down to just $890 for a limited time.

If you don’t find yourself in need of a  laptop that can double as a tablet, then the HP Envy 17t is a solid option to consider. With an upgraded Intel Core i7 processor, 12 GB of RAM, and a mixture of HDD and SSD storage, it packs a nice little punch. It also offers a large 17.3-inch touchscreen that you can feast your eyes and fingers upon. Overall, it’s a good laptop for anyone looking to transition between being productive and streaming Netflix.

Normally priced at $1,350, a solid $400 discount drops the price of this Envy laptop down to just under $1,000.

HP Envy x360 13 vs. HP Spectre x360 13

They're almost the same size. They weigh almost the same. They're both 360-degree convertible 2-in-1s with support for active pens. So, why are HP's Envy x360 13 and Spectre x360 13 so similar? It's what's inside that counts here, and there are enough differences that these two similar machines are aimed at different users. Neither shows up on our best laptops or best 2-in-1s lists, but that doesn't mean they're not excellent machines.

The Envy x360 13 is made for creators, people who do CPU-intensive tasks like video editing, while the Spectre x360 13 is made for discerning productivity users who want a bit of style. But is one of these laptops better than the other?

HP has not just one but two 15-inch convertibles, the Envy x360 15 and the Spectre x360 15, and while they share the same format, they're very different laptops. HP has been aiming the Envy line at creators and the Spectre at discerning productivity users, and so choosing between them can be a challenge. We've taken the time to break down the differences to help you decide which is best for you.

Both of these 15-inch, 360-degree, convertible 2-in-1s are interesting laptops. They work perfectly well as a traditional clamshell, are awesome in media mode for bingeing Netflix, and tablet mode is great, thanks to the expansive screen -- if you prop them up on a surface. Tent mode seems unwieldy, suspending such a large laptop on its edges, but it's otherwise a size and style that adds real value to a 15-inch laptop.

HP Envy vs. HP Spectre

HP produces a range of laptops ranging from budget machines in the Pavilion line all the way up to ZBook workstations. Planted in the middle are two lines, the Envy and Spectre, with the Envy starting at significantly lower prices (but not quite in the budget category) and the Spectre being squarely in premium territory. Some of the best laptops made today come out of these two lineups, such as the Envy 15 that's on our best laptops for photo editing roundup, and the Spectre x360 14, that's on several of our lists, including best 2-in-1s.

At one time, the HP Envy was considered a midrange laptop, while the Spectre was considered a higher-end machine. That's changed, at least in terms of capabilities, with the Envy aimed at creators and the Spectre meant for discerning productivity users. What are the primary differences between the two? Read on to find out.
