Starting at just $1,050 (AU$2,230, UK TBD), the new HP Spectre x360 is one sleek backflipping laptop.

Just feast your eyes on that metal frame, with its edge-to-edge backlit keys. At a minimum, there's a Core i5 processor and 8GB of memory in there, plus a blazing fast 256GB solid state drive.

Look how small the screen bezels are on this crisp, 1,920x1,080-pixel touchscreen!

It's a great looking laptop from practically any angle...

...and the new quad-array of Bang & Olufsen-branded speakers sound pretty sweet.

There's just one little problem: Practically all the ports you know and love are missing.

Just these two (admittedly awesome) multipurpose Thunderbolt 3 / USB-C ports...

...and a single full-size USB 3.0 port on the left. Plus a headphone jack.

At least I can plug in my thumbdrive.

Still, we're talking about a laptop with a pretty great keyboard.

A smooth glass touchpad.

And the ability to do THIS.

Plus, there's a facial recognition camera built-in so you can log into Windows just by looking at the screen.

I just don't quite get why HP made the laptop thinner and lighter. It was fine the way it was.

Particularly since it's not thinner and lighter enough (2.85 pounds, 13.8mm thick) to use in tablet form for more than a couple minutes at a time.
