It’s impressive that the Core i7-1065G7 boosts up to 3.9Ghz but the HP Spectre X360’s cooling can’t keep up. CPU temps easily reach the 100-degree TJMax and sit at 39-degrees on idle. However, the HP Spectre X360 is a silent laptop and doesn’t sound like a jet-engine on extreme workloads. If HP allows a more aggressive fan profile, then the 1065G7 could do tasks with ease.
Powering HP’s premium ultrabook is a 60Wh battery. HP manages to get away with this thanks to the power-efficient Intel 10th-gen Icelake CPU. The 4K OLED panel sounds power-hungry, but it also saves some battery whenever it displays black or dark colors as the pixels are able to completely turn off for better contrast. Charging the ultrabook is also impressive as I am able to get a 50% charge in 30-minutes. Moreover, spending my time with the HP Spectre X360 on regular workloads lands the device at around 8-10hours of battery life. This is without any keyboard backlighting and the display’s brightness is only at 50% with the battery slider at better battery.
