Default HP Envy 14 Spectre Ultrabook Review Comment Thread

HP's classifies their new $1400 Envy 14 Spectre as a "premium Ultrabook" but what differentiates it from the host of competitors? Quite a bit actually. Its chassis that's clad in Gorilla Glass, there's spectacular display, Beat Audio integration boost sound performance...and we're just scratching the surface. If there was ever a notebook deserved a "premium" moniker, this may be it.

Nice little laptop... Definately not the best bang for your buck but it seems reliable and perfect for a work computer. Now if only HP would fix thermal management on their less expensive laptops they would probably be able to stay #1, unfortunately HP has developed a bit of a bad reputation in the mid-low end category. However this laptop will make me keep my eye open for HP.

P.S Nice review Sky

Good review Sky. HP can make a very good track-pad (a-la their Elitebook series), I guess they (like many) simply can't make one that looks sexy and actually works properly at the same time.

Is Apple whoring all the patents on this?
