Reviews for the HP Spectre 13-3090EF

80% HP Spectre 13 review

The Spectre excels in several key areas. Its exterior looks and feels fantastic, the screen is excellent, and it’s got the best battery life we’ve seen from any Windows Ultrabook. The reasonable keyboard and good trackpad make up for the misfiring Control Zones and poor speakers, and there’s enough power on the inside to handle daily tasks and even light gaming. This is one of the best Windows Ultrabooks on the market, and one of the closest we’ve seen to matching the MacBook Air.

HP Spectre 13 Ultrabook review: a good deal, but with trade-offs
Source: Engadget English
It's already March, dear readers, which means with the exception of this post right here, you're not going to find many laptop reviews on this site. There's lots to like about the Spectre 13 -- especially given the low price. For the money, you can expect an attractive design, bright display, fast performance and a generous warranty. But you should also prepare yourself for middling battery life and one frustrating trackpad.
