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: HP attempted something radical with the original Envy Spectre Ultrabook. Completely enclosed in scratch-resistant glass, it was one of the best looking laptops we've had pass through our labs. For its sequel, HP has been more restrained, using an all-metal design that might not be as eye-catching, but will certainly keep the price at an affordable level.
