Reviews for the HP Envy Spectre XT 13-2006tu
Source: Good Gear Guide
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 as its very fast SSD and the fact that it includes dual-band Wi-Fi. If you don't mind fan noise and can put up with reflections, then go for it.
