Coming to you from Matthew Moniz, this insightful video highlights several standout laptops of early 2024, pinpointing features that cater to a wide range of users. Moniz' praise for the HP Spectre X360 14 inch as a top choice for its design, performance, and value illustrates the importance of these aspects in selecting a laptop, particularly for professional work. This 2-in-1 laptop, with its superb keyboard, OLED display, and battery life, demonstrates the critical balance between functionality and aesthetics that photographers and videographers seek in a device.

Worst things on PC laptops are massive cropped hdmi output (6 bit?), and windows programs (explorer...) not supporting color profile.
It's really tired to be in 2024 with still these limitations.

That was a legacy setting with nvidia cards and is a simple settings change

I have changed that in settings (6 to 8 bits), but anyway I don't get accurated colors. It looks as a hardware restriction.
