HP Spectre 13 Ultraportable Laptop Review
27 February 2014
Excerpt: HP's 13-inch Spectre packs a number of premium ultrabook features in an attractive package and an even more attractive price point. For a starting price of about $1,000 you get an attractive aluminum case, 13-inch touchscreen running at 1920x1080, 4th generation i5 processor and fast SSD storage. Add in a few extras, such as Beats Audio and pre-loaded software like Adobe's Lightroom and you've got yourself quite a value play in the Windows ultrabook arena.
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. By every other metric, however, this Ultrabook excels.
Pros: Thin and light, Excellent 1080p display, Loud, enjoyable speakers, Great touchpad, Long battery life, Affordable
Cons: Compute performance is below average, Only two USB ports and no Ethernet
HP's 13.3in Spectre 13 Pro Ultrabook is a solid piece of kit that ships with a 1440p screen and an ultrawide touchpad

Excerpt: DinSide Under en presselansering i Oslo nylig viste HP fram en rekke produktnyheter , og avslørte samtidig at selskapet i tiden framover vil sette design i høysetet - i nær sagt alle produktkategorier. Ett av produktene som passer godt inn i den nye designfilosofien er dagens testprodukt, ultrabooken HP Spectre 13 .
Pros: Solid, slank, god design, meget god og høyoppløst skjerm, godt tastatur, fullstørrelses HDMI-utgang, bra programpakke, bra generell ytelse og svært god batteritid
Cons: Mangler ethernet-kontakt, blir litt varm, McAfee-pakken belaster prosessor unødig.
