The race for the classiest ultrabook was fought by Asus , Acer and HP last year and, with HP coming out of it very well indeed. Why? The price tag for the 13-inch HP Spectre XT isn't ridiculous and the design and build is as close to a MacBook Pro as a...

The Spectre XT is quite a capable Ultrabook, and certainly does exude that ‘pick me up and caress me’ feeling. Having said that, it unfortunately doesn’t wow with its screen, which should have been much better to keep up with the overall premium look...

The HP Spectre XT is a new ultrabook that feels oddly familiar. Its slender wedge shape and metal build is not only reminiscent of the Apple Macbook Air, it is also very similar to HP's own Envy 6. We prefer that ultrabook's distinctive black and red...

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...

Styling The Spectre XT is uniquely good looking, with its propped up profile accentuated by conforming brushed aluminium lines. This brushed finished contrasts with it shaved steel edging—similar to Samsung's series 9—and gives the notebook a premium...

Though we gave the HP Envy Spectre XT a bit of a hard time for not bringing anything new to the table, it's still a very strong Ultrabook that's good looking and well made. The metal casing gives it a premium look and the internals don't skimp: fast...

Lisa Gade reviews the HP Envy Spectre XT Ultrabook. The Spectre XT has a metal casing that's both attractive and well put together. It has a 13.3″ gloss 1366 x 768 display, a third generation Intel Core i5 ULV CPU, 4 gigs of RAM and a 128 or 256 gig SSD....

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...
