HP Spectre 13t-h200 x2

PC Magazine
18 March 2014
  • Conclusion: The HP Spectre 13t-h200 x2 is a detachable hybrid ultrabook/tablet with an elegant design, but it doesn't compare well to ultrabook competitors.
  • Pros: Sleek, fanless design offers ultrabook functionality and the portability of a tablet. Decent-sized 128GB solid-state drive (SSD). Backlit keyboard. Great sound. Dual-battery design.
  • Cons: Specialized processor sacrifices power to keep temperatures low. No rear-facing camera.

HP Spectre 13t x2 Review

Digitaltrends
2 March 2014
  • Conclusion: The HP Spectre 13t x2 is very similar to the standard HP Spectre 13t ultrabook. Though the latter offers slightly better performance, the difference isn’t noticeable in day-to-day use, and battery life is almost identical.

HP Spectre 13t Review

Digitaltrends
2 March 2014
  • Conclusion: Performance is the Spectre 13t’s only problem. Though its specifications look fine on paper, they translated to below-average figures in both our compute and 3D benchmarks. Day-to-day use isn’t a problem, but you’ll notice the lack of grunt when editing video or playing games.

  • Conclusion: The Spectre 13 has a touch screen, and a very nice one, but its innovative touch pad makes a strong play for users with a traditional bent. They want to use gestures to accomplish some tasks, but they don't want to be poking their notebook's screen to do them.
  • Pros: Control Zone touch pad reduces need to poke screen, High-quality, distinctively colored aluminum case, Gorgeous 1080p display, Quick recovery from sleep, hibernation, Good battery life
  • Cons: Not the quickest multimedia machine, Cramped palm rest, Tactile distinction between touch-pad zones too subtle, F functions are two-key combinations by default

HP Spectre 13t-3000 Ultrabook

CNET
17 December 2013
  • Summary: The HP Spectre 13 is an excellent all-around ultrabook, with a great keyboard, display, and battery life. The unique Control Zone touch pad is interesting, but I wish it were a little more useful and intuitive.
  • Pros: The HP Spectre 13 has a sharp, thin, ultrabook design, high-end upgrade options, a great keyboard, and an extra-wide touch pad.
  • Cons: A handful of other premium ultrabooks offer better value. The extra "control zone" spaces on the touch pad don't feel like a fully realized concept.

HP Spectre 13-3010ea Ultrabook review

PC Advisor
18 June 2014
  • Summary: It won't break any speed records, but the HP Spectre 13 is a smart, attractive Ultrabook that can give Apple's MacBook Air a run for its money. The HP's slimline design, high-quality display and reasonable battery life help ensure that it earns its keep when you're out and about.
