Thanks to the 180° hinge, it can be used as a tablet. Even without a removable keyboard, it is quite possible to take it with you: the aluminum case weighs 1.39 kg and has a thickness of 16.5 mm when folded.

The Specter X360 14-ef comes in two versions: 4.7GHz Intel Core i7-1255U with 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD or 4.4GHz Core i5-1235U with 8GB RAM, as well as a 512 GB SSD. In both cases, the 10-core processor is complemented by an Intel Iris Xe graphics accelerator.

The Core i7 model received a 13.5-inch OLED touch display with a resolution of 3K (3000 × 2000 pixels), an aspect ratio of 3:2 and a maximum brightness of 500 nits. The version with Core i5 has a simpler screen: an IPS panel with FHD + resolution (1920 × 1280 pixels). The display is protected from scratches by Gorilla Glass NBT with anti-reflective coating.

Impressive autonomy is one of the new features. The 66 Wh battery provides up to 16 hours of operation without recharging. Support for fast charging is present: a complete 65 W unit charges the Specter X360 up to 50% in just 45 minutes.
