HP Spectre XT review

 

Can the HP Spectre XT beat a MacBook?

Meaty sound ; Great build ; Good battery life

Tricky touchpad ; Screen could be better

HP Spectre XT Ultrabook : HP Spectre XT Ultrabook 13-2100ea

 

Yes finally a HP unit I know its taken 18 months since their last offering but at last they have reverted to their original PR agency and so review items have started to become available to be tested, here a rather nice Ultrabook.

tHE HP Spectre XT Ultrabook 13-2100ea measures 31x22x1cm. The last measurement is the thickness at the front and it increases to 1.5cm at the rear. The unit weights 1410grams. It is silver grey in colour apart from the screen surround which is black...

HP Spectre XT 13in Ivy Bridge Ultrabook review

 

The Spectre XT is HP's third shot at an Ultrabook in less than six months. The gleaming Gorilla Glass livery of the original 14-inch Spectre [1] was both eye-catching and rugged, but it was also very expensive and quite a bit heavier than you'd expect...

There’s some room for improvement on battery life, but the more I used it the more I found myself liking the Spectre XT. It’s slim, light, fast, and – by Ultrabook standards – competitively priced. If I were HP I’d quit now while I was ahead and forget...

HP Envy Spectre XT (nb-13-2006tu) Ultrabook

 

HP Envy Spectre XT review: a good looking Ultrabook that would kill if it had a better screen and a quieter cooling fan

Very fast SSD ; Dual-band Wi-Fi ; Comfortable keyboard

Noisy ; Reflective screen and narrow vertical viewing angles ; Creaky hinges

HP's Envy Spectre XT looks and feels almost like a premium Ultrabook -- it's small, light and easy to carry on a daily basis. It's quite a noisy unit though and it could use a much better (and less glossy screen). We love its keyboard though, as well...

HP Mini 210 (NB-210-1017TU_01) netbook

 

A 10in HP netbook with plenty of style

Long battery life, easily upgradeable, excellent keyboard, smooth and responsive touchpad

Space for 3G module but no option for it, gets noticeably warm, no 802.11n WiFi, only 1GB RAM

HP's HP Mini 210 (NB-210-1017TU_01) netbook is stylish, comfortable to use and easy to upgrade. Although it has standard specifications, its look and feel are very different to most netbooks', and it's a much more refined product than the netbook it...

Hewlett-Packard Pavilion dv6113TX Entertainment Notebook PC (RE128PA)

Great performance, Media remote

Battery life, Screen design

HP has done a nice job at creating a good all-round user experience with the Entertainment PC range and this machine is no exception. The performance is much better than the dv2000 family we've looked at earlier but the battery life could do with a boost.
