Got a shiny new Oculus Rift or HTC Vive? Then you need a powerful gaming-ready computer that can run your VR headset’s demanding high-res, high-refresh displays.

HP Goes Big With The New 15-Inch Spectre X360

One of our favourite Windows machines from last year was HP’s incredibly limber Spectre x360, a 13″ laptop that could backflip into a tablet if need be. Now, HP’s expanding on the idea, literally, with an all new 15″ Spectre just announced at CES in Las Vegas.

Tablets with detachable keyboards are the new black. HP’s Spectre X2 looks remarkably like a Microsoft Surface Pro 4, even down to the felt-backed keyboard cover, but it sets itself apart with more energy-efficient hardware inside, a digitiser pen made by Wacom, and an entirely fanless design.
