HP’s Spectre x360 MacBook Air competitor launched in India for Rs 129990

HP’s Spectre x360 convertible laptop is one of the most impressive reveals we’ve seen this year and it’s designed to give the MacBook Air a run for its money. Well, the company is now bringing the competition for the latter to India as well, by launching the notebook in question with a whopping Rs 129990 price tag.

That amount is certainly a lot, but you do get top of the line laptop features with the HP Spectre x360. Sadly, it doesn’t look like you’ll be able to customize the notebook or even go for the base model which is tagged at $899.99 (around Rs 57000). The hybrid laptop made its debut just last month and is based on the new 5th generation Intel Broadwell processors.

This HP’s Spectre x360 version carries a Core i7 5500U chip with HD Graphics 5500. Windows 8.1 Pro runs the show and is displayed through a 13.3-inch 2560 x 1440 QHD resolution. HP has also thrown in a full-size backlit keyboard and a multi-touch trackpad.
