Spectre x360 - Will I be satisfied?


May 14, 2010
After a ton of research and consideration, I pulled the trigger on the Spectre x360. I considered the Yoga 910 and the XPS 13 2-1 as well, but for the same specs, the prices were much higher.

Here are the specs:

The purpose is for the wife to be able to go online, handle some pictures and video and for myself to play simple games and such. I know I could have picked a i5 6xxx for half the price but I would like to think I have a machine for the next 5 years. The screen is not the OLED option.

Any thoughts?

The one you mention is thicker and doesnt have touchscreen. I think that the one he is looking at is a good option unless he wants it to be thicker and if he doesnt care about the touchscreen

I reccomend getting what you wanted. That is the best option being that it is cheaper than the alternatives
