Summary: Overall the size, weight, speed, and power of this computer are great. It is like having a touchpad computer, but better overall with more power and portability. No cd or blu ray....all Bluetooth, wifi, or thumbdrive. QHD screen is great...
Pros: battery, size, weight, speed, light, touchscreen, super def screen, start up time is seconds
Cons: 8.1 is taking getting used to, touch pad can be finicky, sound is not good to me
Summary: The HP Spectre 13t-3000 is, truly, a premium Windows 8 laptop. The all-metal body and glass screen lend to the upper-end device. It's in a champagne-gold and truffle brown finish, which compliments the style if you're into that. Also, the screen offers excellent viewing angles and rich colors.
Pros: Sharp, readable screen; good keyboard; responsive trackpad; premium feel
Summary: I'm surprised this machine doesn't get more love. I looked at many laptops before purchase including the Yoga 2 (resolution made fonts too small, build quality not as good) and Thinkpad (best keyboard but very expensive and heavier/larger).
