Laptops are not only for gaming. There are also compact and lightweight devices, which are designed for everyday tasks. The main function of the laptop – is mobility, because it has a bigger screen, a keyboard can be chosen according to taste, and in general performance indicators, heat dissipation and noise will be slightly better than that of a portable device.
It is logical to assume that users do not buy a laptop for compulsion, but because of the need to move freely. For this, of course, you need a light and compact device, and if it is even more powerful than a desktop PC, it will be great. However, what model to choose? Let’s take a closer look at two models.
ASUS ZenBook vs HP Spectre

It includes several lines, where the name of the series is added Duo, Pro, S, Flip, etc. The common features of all these models are stylish design, low thickness, and weight, NanoEdge displays with a thin frame, good performance, and often even longer battery life.
On the other hand, the HP Spectre series is always a pleasure to make materials. The fact is that this is a premium line, which sells at a maximum price. Accordingly, everything has to be perfect here. So, to some extent, there is no need to conduct tests here: everything is already verified to the finest detail.

For this purpose, the device is based on the most modern mobile processor Intel family Tiger Lake-U and has an ultra-fast SSD and the fastest (for laptops) RAM. In addition, the developers in such a compact chassis managed to fit and cool the discrete graphics card Nvidia GeForce MX450, which makes this model of ultrabook very, very interesting.
The case is quite strong, the top cover, the tray, and the top case are made of aluminum alloy. It provides a good ratio of protection to weight, only better than composite carbon fiber or carbon fiber, but this material would make the laptop worth its weight in gold and it would be 10% lower for sure.
The laptop comes with a pre-installed licensed copy of the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system. After loading the system, before using it, it is recommended to update everything through the Update Center because even the firmware of the device is updated there.
