Portability and Design

HP does have one other display-related advantage to boast about. The laptop has been designed to have very slim bezels around the screen—resulting in a screen-to-body ratio of 90.3 percent, according to HP. Along with offering nice aesthetics, that design choice also helps to enable a compact all-around size for the Spectre x360 14. The MacBook Air continues to feature thicker bezels around the display, and the screen-to-body ratio for the notebook has been reported at 69.5 percent.

Still, even with the minimal size of the Spectre x360 14 overall, the MacBook Air is thinner and lighter—though not by a staggering amount. The MacBook Air measures 0.63 of an inch thick and weighs 2.8 pounds, while the Spectre x360 14 measures 0.67 of an inch thick and weighs 2.95 pounds.

In terms of materials, both notebooks are made from aluminum. The MacBook Air is available in three colors—gold, silver or space gray—while the Spectre x360 14 is offered in black (“with Copper Luxe accents”), blue (“with Pale Brass accents”) and silver.
