HP Envy Spectre 14-inch Notebook Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
PC Perspective have reviewed the ultra portable HP Envy Spectre 14 notebook, which features a 14-inch 1600 x 900 display, dual-core/four-thread 1.6-2.3Ghz processor, 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD and Intel integrated HD 3000 GPU.
Let's see what they had to say:
"The greatest of these is the display. Its beautiful. Its colorful. Its bright. Its everything that computer enthusiasts constantly ask for but never receive. No, its not perfect (quality is still behind a decent desktop monitor) but it puts most laptop displays to shame.
HP also manages to avoid fumbling on build quality. The Spectre feels robust, luxurious and properly put together. Panel gaps are mostly out of sight and tight when they are, chassis flex is kept to a minimum and material feel is excellent.
The Spectre is a strong second swing at Cupertino. Its built nearly as well as Apples products, provides a better display than the 13 Air or Pro and offers significantly better sound quality. I also think the Spectre is more attractive."
While it certainly is not the lightest ultrabook available, the 4lb. HP Envy Spectre does offer an excellent balance of performance and portability at a fairly reasonable price.
