Summary: This is a great laptop with great battery life, nice screen and resolution. I had some trepidation with Win8.1, but have spent time to figure out a lot of it I have an android phone and wish that I could use some of those apps with the win 8 laptop. My main complaint is that I can't sync my Yahoo calendar with any microsoft app, but there is a Yahoo mail app which works ok.
Summary: For those people looking for a Windows laptop that looks and feels like a macbook pro or a macbook air, this is the perfect laptop. It has a nice crisp shut just like the feel when you shut a mac laptop and the aluminum build feels incredible. The laptop is ultra light while still feeling sturdy. The touchscreen is also a major plus with Windows 8 and the fan is ok, not as loud as people make it seem.
Summary: This may well be the finest new product in this segment in years. It is built as solid as a tank. The attention to detail of design and construction is an all new territory for HP - as it would be for any brand. I literally cannot think of a single feature of this awesome machine that is either missing or does not perform exceedingly well. Actually, I can cite one single area of disappointment: the track pad.
Excerpt: Pros: Form-factor, display, battery life (>7hours with average use), weight, processing power. Cons: Slow processing at times, display lags, display blanking when coming back online from sleep-mode, display font size at highest resolution is too small.
Summary: This is best laptop. (spectre 13) But.. One fatal drawbacks. .................................................... Can get noticeably warm annoying hissing noises short battery life Screen can be tiring to look at ...................................................... Everything starts at the one place. QHD. Never Do not buy !! Does not fit in 13 inches. If you choose FHD everything better. Noise, heat, battery time, readability, everything is different.
Summary: This computer didn't work long enough to find out how it would perform. It looked great, but evidently the internal battery was bad. The battery is built in, so you can not just get a new battery it must be sent in to have the battery replaced.
Summary: This is one of the few HP ultrabooks that actually lives up to it's name. The weight to robust construction ratio is excellent. 1920x1080 screen is very nice. Battery life seems good. Performance with the SSD drive is very fast. I also like the very large touchpad. I have a little problem with the keyboard. Mechanically it feels fine, but the silver colored key caps are hard to see in some light and the keyboard backlight is poor.
Summary: The performance of the machine was satisfactory. Not a fan of Win 8 and was unhappy with the amount of bloatware preloaded on the laptop. In terms of value, the security software is well below average and should include a better suite such as Bitdefender. Overall, the laptop is average, software included was below average and unsatisfactory for the price.
Summary: i was looking to buy an ultrabook to last me through high school and after weeks of searching, i found this one. i am truly impressed and satisfied with my purchase and i would totally recommend this to a friend. i customized the laptop to have a core i7 processor, 256 gb of ssd, a qHD screen, and 8gb of ram. after searching for coupons online and using a special credit card i got this configuration for only $1,182!
