HP ENVY 14 Spectre XT
5 September 2012
Conclusion: Though we gave the HP Envy Spectre XT a bit of a hard time for not bringing anything new to the table, it's still a very strong Ultrabook that's good looking and well made. The metal casing gives it a premium look and the internals don't skimp: fast SSD drives, dual band Intel wireless with WiDi and Bluetooth 4.0 are top notch. The display is better than average for clarity and viewing angles, though the resolution is commonplace.
Pros: Good quality, metal casing, fast and pleasant keyboard.
Cons: Average features and specs don't set it apart from the Ultrabook crowd.
Excerpt: I was a big fan of Ultrabooks—or at least the concept of Ultrabooks —when they first debuted in 2012 (see ' What is an Ultrabook? '). After all, who doesn't like the idea of sliver-thin laptops that run Windows? Unfortunately, it seems like the definition of an Ultrabook has since expanded to include any relatively sleek-looking ultraportable laptop—other specs be darned.
