To give customers the battery life they expect, the HP Spectre x2 features a 42-watt hour battery. The touch panel on the HP Spectre x2 is optically bonded to the display, increasing brightness and pulling each pixel up to the surface of the display. The HP Spectre x2 takes advantage of Panel Self Refresh (PSR) technology that holds images on the screen to allow portions of the PC to power down when nothing on the screen is moving.

For productivity, the HP Spectre x2 comes with a full-sized, 1.5 millimeter travel keyboard and 120 x 55 millimeter touchpad to offer customers an accurate, comfortable and familiar experience. The keyboard easily detaches and attaches with a magnetic connector to transform to a notebook for productivity or tablet for on the go. Customers can elevate the keyboard for an angled typing surface for added comfort. The touchpad has Precision TouchPad (PTP) technology that gives customers a smooth experience when browsing in the Edge browser. The bottom of the keyboard is made of woven fabric and the top of the keyboard is made from aluminum.

The HP Spectre x2 has a 3.5 millimeter stainless steel U-shaped kickstand with a friction hinge to allow customers to recline the 12-inch Full HD (1920 x 1280) diagonal display all the way back to 150 degrees, for drawing, taking notes or watching a movie. The U-shaped kickstand design leaves more room for the larger battery to extend battery life while keeping the device thin and light. The touchscreen display is optimized for customers to use an active stylus for productivity.

The HP Spectre x2 features two USB Type-C connectors, both with the capability to charge, power and connect to a display, transfer data and support HP Sleep and Charge. Because customers still want to use USB Type-A, the HP Spectre x2 comes with a USB-Type-C to USB Type-A adapter in the box.
