Every year, the hardware that manufacturers such as Dell, HP, and others can fit into the thin body of a laptop continues to get more and more impressive. Already, we see state-of-the-art laptops giving even the most powerful home computers a run for their money. Having arrived late in 2020, the newest model of Apple’s Macbook Air is a powerhouse of portable computing technology; capable of handling intense processing demands faster and with greater efficiency than anything else before it. The new HP Spectre X360 14 gives Apple’s Macbook Air a run for its money, with a sleek outer shell, and robust internals. Critics have called the Spectre the gold standard for Windows-based laptops in 2021.
