Nice unit, not sure the Windows 8 with Spectre is a good choice for business applications though.

  • Summary: The HP Spectre has a number of very useful features including a great touch-screen, good illuminated keyboard, great speakers and fast processor. Some of the areas I don't enjoy as such are the oversensitive mouse-pad which accidentally will land you on another page when the hand slides over the surface. Also the WiFI connection sometimes gets dropped which can be disturbing.

  • Summary: The touch performs actions for several times bizarre, but I'm going to learn how to disable it. It's too big for one ultrabook, but it is very beautiful.

Beautiful & Quality feeling Ultrabook

Tom, Amazon

  • Summary: At first I want to say that I maybe had not bought it when I knew I had to pay more than 200 dollars import rights. Oh, and shipping was another 100 dollar plus. So that was actually not cool. I bought a refurbisched one from this Ultrabook. The Ultrabook feels so great and has quality. I love it! I am actually a Windows 8 Hater so I formatted it and put Windows 7 on. That was one hell of a task because I had to install all drivers for everything manually.

Great Ultrabook

  • Summary: I love all the features that this ultrabook has....its just hard getting use to Windows 8. Had I known it would take me longer than anticipated to acclimate to Window 8, I would have gotten Windows 7 laptop. The only ad thing about this laptop is what others have said. the battery like is awful. Next time, I will heed that warning and buy something with a lot longer battery life. If I get 3 hours, I'm lucky.

The PC works fine.

  • Summary: Still, Windows 8 is still an adjustment for me. Please be aware that for these Ultrabooks, you do get a very thin and light laptop, but the thin and light designs means that you sacrifice a CD drive (which is old technology that is fading away). I needed to buy an external CD drive and an external USB adapter with additional USB ports for the laptop to do everything I needed it to do.

It's alright

  • Summary: I have read the reviews, before purchasing it, which included some issues with the screen, trackpad, etc. I did not experience any problems witht the screen color gradient, or the touchscreen. However the trackpad is just BAD. If you are using it for plain browsing, it is managable to just use the touchscreen, and if you were to use it for gaming, you will definetly use a gaming mouse, so this problem is managable.

Awesome except for battery life. Gets better with just SSD (read my review for details)

  • Summary: UPDATE - 03/23 Upgrading the mSATA to 256 GB SSD --------------------- This laptop's SATA 3 on the mSATA connector, but only SATA2 for the regular HDD. No worries - I have upgraded my mSATA SSD drive to 256 GB, but it wasn't easy - here's what I did. Hopefully it will save you some trouble. Installing the mSATA SSD ------------------------------- 1. Was able to get the screws out back plate off without much trouble. 2. Remove the existing mSATA and put in the new one. 3.

Great touch ultrabook though a few things could be improved

TW990, Amazon

  • Summary: I have to disagree with some of the other reviewers as far as the ultrabook's display being true to color as well as some of the comments related to build quality. First, I have to preface this by saying I may not be as discriminating as others in terms of what I expect, but I found the display to be gorgeous (compared to my previous 768 resolution Samsung). The red Netflix box appeared to be true to life red as did the other colors. The touch is very responsive as well.
