Seeing the world is fun, but you have to be prepared to see the world if you are to catch all of that fun. One of the things that could impact your trip is the choice of hardware you choose to bring with you, and today, we have one we believe you will love.
Its name: HP Sceptre x360 13.
No, this is not one of those posts which run down the specs and talks about the device. We will leave that for you to find out – and we can assure you that you’ll be finding out that this unit packs some serious heat under the hood.
What we are more interested in is how HP has crafted this masterpiece to be the ideal friend for travellers.
When you have to travel a lot, size is one thing that suddenly becomes important to you.
Is your travel suitcase too big? Are you packing too light? How can you get to pick [insert important item] without having to lug around all that extra weight?
The HP Spectre x360 13 takes all that into consideration. This recent launch comes at just 13 inches, as the name implies, and weighs just 2.8lbs. At this weight range, you won’t even know you are lugging anything around.
For many travellers who have to work on the go, you will find out that the 13 inches of screen gives you all you need – with the laptop promising a 90% screen to body ratio.
It is no news that cyber breaches are on the rise, and our data privacy and security is at risk. One of the common ways by which users express concerns over this is by taping something over their webcams.
This is not an overreaction, considering the fact that even Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, had been caught doing the same thing before.
To make things less messy, HP designed a Webcam kill switch into the Sceptre x360 13. Toggling it on removes the system’s electrical access to the webcam. In other words, the laptop is made to feel like it doesn’t have any webcam – and as such, it can neither be remotely/ physically turned on till you flip the kill switch again.
To better the situation, HP also worked in a LED button to mute the in-built microphone. That way, you can always be sure you are not being tracked via your hardware when travelling.
Besides the privacy options, HP is in a strategic partnership with ExpressVPN to bring its users a more robust protection plan, especially when they go online. Pre-installing a VPN from this company onto the Sceptre x360 13, you can be free from the common problems plaguing public Wi-Fi networks everywhere HYPERLINK
That means protection against all of the over-the-air malware installations, man in the middle attacks, data monitoring, internet traffic recording and so much more.
You can, thus, browse via the complimentary free Wi-Fi in the hotel, airport, park, coffee shop or any other place you visit without having to fear someone gaining unauthorized access to your computer and data.
Following up on the above point, HP pre-installing a VPN also serves travellers right in the avenue of getting access to their desired content over the web.
Due to geo-blocking techniques, it is sometimes impossible to access certain content from certain parts of the world. For example, certain Netflix shows in the US might not be available in Israel. Likewise, English travellers might lose access to streaming the EPL if they are travelling an unsupported region.
With a VPN, these users can simply connect to a supported server location to access all of their services like they never left.
