I'm hoping there will be news soon on the Spectre X360 with an OLED screen. 13" model shown at CES, but I wonder if it will actually see commercialisation.
They should update their screen hinge design, there is a serious issue with HP-650 of the current generation.
Ah the HP Pavilions… I remember mine, it melt like an icecream a week after the end of warranty…

They had this stupid design flaw that it literary let the connections of the GPU melt. But the best side of this? Their solution was to pay like 400 euro to replace the motherboard with another one with the same faulty design. Which will end up dead again.

It could server them better if they had recalled this line of faulty designs.
Good to see AMD getting some chips into OEM products - I guess these are some of the very first Bristol Ridge powered machines.
