Now, HP is once again eyeing to rival the MacBook Pro with its new and improved HP Spectre x360.

HP just announced a 15-inch version of the HP Spectre x360 that can directly compete with Apple?s newest MacBook Pro. The new HP hybrid laptop is built to perform while maintaining excellent form at all times.
