Because most of us are working from home now, we've also begun to realise (at least this writer la) how our laptops or computers need an upgrade.
If you're looking for something at the moment, you have to check out HP's recently launched HP Spectre x360 14.

Understanding this, HP's newest device is built to be adaptive and smart, with the use of intelligent features ike performance management and new AI-based audio capabilities to anticipate needs before the user does.
"On-the-go computing takes on new meaning as today’s users demand devices that can accommodate a variety of use cases and environments within their homes,” said Alex Tan, Sales Director, HP Inc. Malaysia.
“HP is listening to its users in real time, offering the most intelligent Spectre yet – designed to seamlessly adapt and anticipate the needs and demands of its users, from intelligent audio features like AI Noise Removal for more immersive and engaging Zoom calls to solutions like Smart Sense that automatically adjust settings on the device for improved performance.”
