Summary: This is my first HP. The Ultrabook is aesthetically very nice and a great size and weight for me. I purchased an HP service contract directly from HP. HP support is absolutely terrible! I have owned this HP for six months and for the past three months I have had a problem where the WiFi adapter has to be reset every thirty minutes. HP support attempted to fix the problem real-time and finally I had to send my computer to HP service for repair.
Summary: Bought this laptop in August hoping to use it in college. However, less than a month later, the gorilla glass on the keyboard broke and it is very EASY to have the screen cracked as well. While, this laptop is no doubt a stunner, it is also extremely fragile. Nothing much to complain about the computer itself, it has a solid battery life of around 6 hours. Graphics are stunning.
Summary: I needed a laptop that was not too bulky since I travel internationally several times a year. I did not want a tablet because I use "Word" frequently and prefer email to keep in touch with my family. Positive: 1. Attractive glass and aluminum build 2. Comfortable, lighted keyboard. 3. Fairly long battery life- enough for one movie or about 3 hours of typing. 4. Good Speakers. 5. Fast start-up. Negative: 1.
Summary: I don't normally write reviews but I think this is a great product that deserves recognition. I needed a laptop to replace my dead DelI, and after lots of research I settled on this one. When I bought it I was slightly concerned that the ram and the processor wouldn't be good enough, but this computer is fast as lightning and I haven't had a single issue with it.
Summary: I really wanted to give this 5 stars. I really do love using this computer. It's really fast, has a beautiful screen, excellent keyboard and touchpad, and it looks great. So why only 4 stars? I'll answer that with some questions; like, why only 2 usb ports? Why is only one of the usb ports usb 3? Why only 94gb of hard drive?
Summary: Coming from a 10-inch Toshiba NB205 netbook, the Spectre is a major step up, though it is 3X the price. I love this machine. Fast, great screen, perfect for what I do. I use it with a IF mouse, not a keypad fan. But excellent on my lapdesk or tabletop. It's my backup PC (use a desktop for work), but it's just great so far, about two months into owning it. Heartily recommend if you are looking for a great 14-inch ultrabook.
Summary: I chose this product because If I was going to get a new laptop, I was going to go for the highest quality one available, instead of having to get a new one a few years down the line. I was sick of completing reports on my tablet and opted for this sleek, beautiful and lightweight ultrabook. It is absolutely stunning to look at and to use. Turns on/off ridiculously fast. The keyboard is fantastic. The display is dazzling.
