Model:

The HP Spectre 13-H200EF belongs to the Spectre 13 series, which consists of ultrabooks for users who love using subnotebooks or laptop/tablet hybrids. The device comes with an Intel Core i7 4500U, which is a great quad core processor with a clock rate of up to 3.2 GHz, but it requires quite a lot of energy. 4 GB of RAM is also useful to ensure smooth usage. However, the integrated graphics card is a little subpar.

The screen however, is not too shabby. The 13.3 inch display is equipped with an anti-glare FHD UWVA touchscreen with a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels. This allows users to enjoy graphics on the screen. Connectivity is also no issue with this laptop. It comes with the standard 802.11 Wi-Fi and supports Bluetooth 4.0 ensuring that users can easily get connected. The battery life of the Spectre 13 is noteworthy, mainly due to having two batteries; a 3-cell (33WHr) Li-Ion polymer battery in the tablet itself and a 2-cell (18WHr) Li-Ion polymer battery in the base keyboard. One neat thing about the HP Spectre 13-H200EF is that it comes with a HP TrueVision HD Webcam with activity LED.

All in all, the HP Spectre 13-H200EF is a decent ultrabook providing an all-round good specifications. Unfortunately, the ultrabook fails to grab the attention of the market, probably due to the increasing interest in tablets. However, users who are not afraid to be different can certainly give this notebook a try.

Intel HD Graphics (Haswell): In the mobile Haswell Celeron and Pentium integrated processor graphics card. The HD Graphics is the slower, GT1 called, part with less execution units (EUs).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4500U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.5 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


HP: The Hewlett-Packard Company, founded 1935, commonly referred to as HP, is a technology corporation headquartered in California, United States. HP specializes in developing and manufacturing computing, storage, and networking hardware, software and services.

Other product lines, including electronic test equipment and systems, medical electronic equipment, solid state components and instrumentation for chemical analysis. HP posted US $91.7 billion in annual revenue in 2006, making it the world's largest technology vendor in terms of sales. In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. 

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

 

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
