The shipping date is January 1st. This is not really acceptable for holiday shopping, and so it makes it a lukewarm deal at best.

HP's shipping dates for configurable laptops across the board are abysmal.

For a second I thought this was the new one that comes in silver, and not the one with the chunky bezels. Sad face.

Great price; lowest price ever; should be frontpage.

A few points to note:
1) Don't upgrade to the privacy filter screen, which degrades the screen quality regardless of whether you activate the filter or not.
2) the upgrade to 512 GB hard drive is overpriced
3) There is a 10th gen processor which comes with an upgraded model but it is so much more expensive. the 8th gen at $709 is a steal as long as you don't have to spend $100 to upgrade to 512 GB hard drive.

HP charges a 15% restocking fee

If you decide to go with the laptop and upgrade the hard drive, select the option that Is NOT intel "optane" as the non optane SSD is a lot better

Because it's the last-gen Spectre x360. The newer one that was just released (10th gen Ice Lake, narrower bezels so smaller footprint, Precision touchpad, otherwise same basic specs) is $140 more. Probably worth the premium.

Not to mention HP has a 15% restocking fee if you change your mind.

Also, much like other mfg (Dell, Lenovo) direct orders, it's hit or miss to get before Christmas, which is important to some.

I bought the newer one with narrow bezels (Specter x360 13T 2019 model)

Has
4K OLED screen
512gb ssd
10th gen i7
Silver model
Total $1384 after taxes

I love the screen and the small form factor but I'm returning it. Couldn't adjust to the screen coming from a surface. My next device has to have a 3x2 aspect ratio.

DM me if anyone wants it before I return
