HP Envy 14 Spectre Pic Set

Posted on 12 January 2012 by

HP Spectre (6)

Three manufacturers have launched Ultrabook devices at CES that sit below premium version of their thin-and-light laptops and in some cases, their premium Ultrabooks I take this as an indication that the Ultrabook design and build method is spreading into wider laptop categories.

HP have the Folio 13 Ultrabook at the ‘budget’ end of their thin and light range but are also pushing the HP Envy 14 Spectre which is a rather expensive device clearly aimed at those that have a relatively unrestricted buying choice. I wasn’t able to spend too much time with it but I took some pics which might help you make the decision. It’s either this or the Series 9 if you’re looking in that part of the market.

We’ve got the full Hp Envy 14 Spectre specifications in the database here but the key features are the 1600×900 Gorilla Glass screen, Beats audio, ‘up to 9hrs’ battery life, Display Port and Wi-Di capability

    I am looking in this part of this market and it looks like the new samsung 9 with bigger and more port options than the hp spectre might be the choice? chippy if you read this do you prefer the spectre or the samsung 9?

    Are the Ultrabook fans who want higher than 1366×768 res in a 13″ display still stuck with only one option, even after CES?


  • Adam

    The looks and specs in the 14 ARE convincing, though….


  • Robert

    the only problem i have with this range is it´s name .. envy one of the major vices in the world why not something else and spectre hehe oh well still a nice device i think i will get it but it could way a little less like the dell or samsung 9
