80% Review HP Spectre 13-h205eg x2 Convertible | Notebookcheck
Silent companion. Haswell makes it possible: HP offers a fan-less 13.3-inch notebook with the Spectre 13 x2, which transforms into a tablet with a push of a button. However, the bulky detachable is certainly no bargain with a retail price of almost 1,100 Euros (~$1485).
56% HP Spectre 13 X2 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The HP Spectre 13 X2 is a suitable convertible, but it doesn’t warrant the high-end price tag. With an Intel Core i5 processor and 4GB of DDR3 its performance is capable, but the device is outclassed by competitors such as the Microsoft Surface 2 Pro and Dell XPS 13. The Spectre also offers a high-grade durable build, but the awkward button placement and wobbling display can make the device uncomfortable to operate in both laptop and tablet modes. While the display offers solid color contrast, the overall viewing experience is marred by the screen’s limited brightness.

60% HP Spectre 13 x2 review: This hybrid falls short of the hype
Source: PC World English
In my view, 2-in-1s as large as HP’s Spectre 13 x2 fall short of the goal of delivering tablet and notebook functionality in a single device. They’re bulky, they don’t deliver enough battery life, and this particular model gets too hot when you take full advantage of its beefier processor (which is weaker than what you’d get in a conventional notebook). I’m not saying the detachable 2-in-1 concept is completely without merit. The architect scenario I described above is a compelling use case, and I’m sure HP can list others. I just think most people will be happier with separate devices, or a smaller tablet with optional accessories.

HP Spectre 13 Review: The MacBook for Windows users
Source: Slashgear English
There are no two ways about it: HP tried to make a MacBook. The Spectre is like the illegitimate child of a MacBook Pro and MacBook Air which refused to teach their newborn the ways of OS X. If you’re a Windows user who quietly covets the build and quality of a Mac, check out the Spectre — it’s likely as close as you’ll get right now. For those looking for a smartly styled, capable machine, look to the Spectre. The base price of $1,000 is no toe-dip in the pool, but it’s well worth it for the HP. If you need more muscle, the version sporting a better screen and Intel Core i7 will set you back $1,400. Again, well worth it, and considering the screen upgrade, our recommendation here.

The fact that the HP Spectre 13T-3000 is so competitive with top systems like the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus and the Acer Aspire S7-392-6411 is something of a testament to HP's design and manufacturing acumen. While these systems are extremely similar in specifications, performance, and quality of design, the HP Spectre 13T-300 starts at $999.99, a few hundred dollars less than the competition. To sell this quality of a product at that more reasonable price is no small feat, but to do so while offering longer battery life and similar performance makes it one of the better ultrabooks on the market today. The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus remains the Editors' Choice due to its superior display and faster multimedia performance, but if those features don't grab you, the HP Spectre 13T-300 is a more affordable alternative.

Design has rarely been PC makers' strong suit. It isn't the fastest 13.3-inch ultrabook, but the Spectre 13 is a sleek, solidly built contender with an innovative touch pad that reduces the need to swipe and tap its 1080p touch screen. Add nine-hour battery life, and it's a good value at $999.

80% HP Spectre 13 review: an exceedingly well-executed return to the basics
Source: PC World English
Under the hood, you’ll find a fourth-generation Intel Core i5-4200U CPU paired with 4GB of DDR3/1600 memory. The 128GB SSD feels a bit cramped, but you can double the storage for an additional $150. The PC packs Intel’s integrated graphics, so you won't get much in the way of gaming performance, but turning down settings will do in a pinch. Those components are good enough to earn a respectable WorldBench 8.1 score of 270. One shortcoming you won’t be able to fix: the Spectre 13’s cooling fan. It kicks in when the processor starts doing any heavy lifting, and the noise can be annoying.

The HP Spectre 13 is built around a gimmick, an extra-wide touch pad with control zones that offer some (very limited) extra Windows 8 functionality. Interestingly, the gimmick is entirely unnecessary, as the Spectre 13 is excellent in its own right.

Performance is the Spectre 13t’s only problem. Though its specifications look fine on paper, they translated to below-average figures in both our compute and 3D benchmarks. Day-to-day use isn’t a problem, but you’ll notice the lack of grunt when editing video or playing games. By every other metric, however, this Ultrabook excels.

HP Spectre 13-3010eg

Those looking for an ultrabook light enough not to weigh them down and powerful enough to handle everyday tasks, should take a look at the HP Spectre 13. The 13-inch Notebook PC comes with a 4th generation i7 processor and 8 GB of RAM, which ensure fast performance for anything you will use it for, even multitasking. Its Sandisk SSD is one of the fastest out there in the market and starting any applications will be snappy.

It comes with a 13.3-inch QHD IPS touchscreen with a native resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels. It's extremely sharp and the colors are beautiful to look at. The display is perfect for anyone who works with photos or videos. The battery can last you roughly around 5-6 hours, which is a little bit on the low side compared to other ultrabooks in the market.

This is all packed into an all aluminium chassis, which helps it to be solid while only weighing at 1.48 kg, light enough to put into your bag and forget it's even there. Overall, this ultrabook is priced very reasonably considering the fast SSD, high resolution IPS display and fast performance.

81% Review HP Spectre 13-3010eg Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Quite the spectre! HP calls its premium ultrabooks "Spectre" - and equips its most recent flagship device with a high-resolution QHD IPS display. But is the difference between QHD and Full HD truly that noticeable? And what about its build quality, its design, its performance and its connectivity? In short: Is the premium ultrabook worth its premium price?

Source: Mobile Tech Review English
It's easy to fall for the HP Spectre 13: it has that combo of quality materials, a sharp full HD (or higher) display and good looks that we expect from an Ultrabook. Better yet, it's priced to sell when compared to the metal-clad full HD or higher competition. Though HP put some hope and thought into the Control Zone trackpad as a differentiator, I don't think it's a huge selling point, but the quality, overall competence and solid performance for the price are do make it easy to recommend.

Our overall experience with the Spectre 13 Pro was a positive one, and we think it’s a great Ultrabook overall, whether used in the business space, or as a personal unit. It’s well built and it looks good. We love the screen quality, the keyboard is mostly comfortable to tap on, it provides a good range of features, and its speed was good for us. We just wish the screen wasn’t so glossy and that the battery life was perhaps a little better.

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.

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.

However for $1,299, consumers can get the Dell XPS 13 that offers better performance, a brighter display and longer battery life in a slimmer, lighter chassis.

The ambitious HP Spectre 13 x2 is one of those products that may be better on paper than in person. But that's only because the idea of a 13-inch high-res hybrid that builds off of HP's excellent Spectre line is such an appealing one.The Spectre 13 x2 works well as a big-screen tablet, and its laptop mode is only held back by some awkward weight and balance issues, not to mention a touch pad that doesn't always register taps and swipes.

Every significant company that produces Windows Ultrabooks has tried its hand a Windows hybrid, and none have succeeded. Every device so far has involved compromise with one or both of those form factors. That’s no different here. The Spectre x2 is thicker and heavier than Ultrabooks, and the top-heavy design has an impact: prodding or adjusting the screen can tip the unit backwards, and it’s awkward to carry around. In tablet mode the x2’s weight, thickness and 13.3in screen means it’s difficult to use the HP in one hand.

The benefits of the HP Spectre 13t-h200 x2 over similarly priced ultrabooks start and end with the two-piece detachable tablet design. As a laptop, the performance is lackluster, and the battery life is somehwat subpar; as a Windows tablet, however, the Spectre 13T-h200 x2 is a solid choice. If you need a well-made, decent-performing Windows tablet, then it's worth considering, but it doesn't hold up well when weighed against other leading ultrabooks, like the Editors' Choice Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus.

HP Spectre 13-H200EF

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.

HP Spectre 13-3010ea

The HP Spectre 13-3010ea is a 13.3 inch ultrabook. The device is not only easy on the eyes but is tough and robust as well. The aluminum surfaces provide a nice high-end finish to the premium ultrabook. The well-built chassis allows users to be rougher with the device without sustaining any damage.

Like most ultrabooks, the HP Spectre 13-3010ea is not equipped with a wide range of ports. It only has a HDMI and 2 USB ports aside from the standard audio jack. It does not have a VGA port nor does it have an Ethernet port for wired connections. Fortunately, the WiFi on the device is rather good. It can communicate with both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band. Bluetooth 4.0 is also supported.

The display for the HP Spectre 13-3010ea is QHD. It is one of the first devices to incorporate this. The 2560 by 1440 resolution is amazing for a screen of only 13.3 inches. Under the hood, the HP Spectre 13-3010ea is powered by an Intel Core i7-4500U processor. The raw processing power of this device is exceptional. Even 3D modelling should be a breeze.

All in all, the HP Spectre 13-3010ea comes with great specifications, an amazing screen and a fantastic exterior. However, like other ultrabooks, it does not come with a great selection of ports and the price is rather high.

It won't break any speed records, but the HP Spectre 13 is a smart, attractive Ultrabook that can give Apple's MacBook Air a run for its money. The HP's slimline design, high-quality display and reasonable battery life help ensure that it earns its keep when you're out and about. And, of course, there's that over-sized trackpad, which is a small but worthy innovation that makes it just that little bit more comfortable to use than many of its rivals.

007 Spectre. HP designed a conventional notebook with a "thickness" of just 10 millimeters, so it is thinner than some first-gen tablets (original iPad: 13 mm). Our full review shows how HP accomplished to fit a fully featured Windows 10 PC into one of the thinnest designs currently available.

HP Spectre 13-v002ng

The HP Spectre 13-v002ng does not only look aesthetic, it also is a solid, high-performance notebook. It is boasts a remarkable slim design of 10.4 mm and weighs merely 1.16 kg. Its 13.3-inch display features a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. As the Windows 10 64-bit system is powered by an blazing-fast 6th generation Intel Core i7 processor, 8 GB RAM and a 256 GB SSD, it has been clearly built for performance. With graphics rendered by an Intel HD Graphics 520, its capacity to deliver stunning visuals is indisputable. Sound quality is above average thanks to powerful speakers from Bang & Olufsen. The Spectre's HP TrueVision Full HD WVA-Cam delivers impressive resolution and quality. The connectivity includes a HDMI port, three USB 3.1 ports (both Thunderbolt compatible) and microphone/headphones combo jack. A 4-cell Lithium Ion (38 Wh) battery makes for a battery life of up to 8 hours. However, the battery is not removable.

A Thin, Sleek, Nimble Beauty
Source: Hot Hardware English
The HP Spectre offered surprisingly robust performance for such a thin and light machine. Typically, when a machine this thin comes in for testing here, we're prepared for some level of throttling of the main system processor. However, that absolutely was not the case. In fact, the HP Spectre routinely held a top tier position in all of our benchmark testing, whether in standard compute tasks or graphics and gaming, versus other laptops of its size and class.

70% HP Spectre
Source: Laptop Mag English
With world-class good looks, boundary-pushing thinness, a brilliant display and top-notch performance, the HP Spectre has a lot going for it. Unfortunately, those highlights are countered by weak battery life, hot exhausts and a shortage of creature comforts like SD card readers or a touch-enabled display, which make comparisons between the Spectre and high maintenance hypercars hard to deny.

With an incredibly thin body and premium feel, the Spectre 13 is easy to recommend. It'll turn heads, but it's not a case of style over substance, as it beats or matches other top ultraportables we've tested. Because it costs $250 less than the Dell XPS 13 Touch and is a bit faster, it's an appealing option. That said, the XPS 13 boasts a higher-resolution touch display with minimal bezels along with the convenience of full-size USB ports, so it remains our Editors' Choice for high-end ultraportables.

Put simply, the HP Spectre 13 confounds expectations. When you see a notebook only 0.41 inch thin, you just know it'll have a Core M processor instead of a Core i7. You're sure it'll have a compromised, travel-free keyboard. You suspect it doesn't have room for an all-day battery. The Spectre makes those predictions wrong, wrong, wrong.

In the end, I have to give HP credit for accomplishing its goal of making the thinnest laptop possible without compromises. You’re truly getting Core i7 performance in a body most manufacturers would outfit with a low-power Core m. And let’s not forget that the Spectre 13.3 gives you not one, but two Thunderbolt 3 ports and a USB-C port.

It's a rare treat when we see what can only be described as a designer laptop that's 1) not priced way above the competition, 2) actually highly functional. The HP Spectre 13.3" Ultrabook has undeniable good looks, though it may be a bit uncomfortably fashion-oriented for some.

While the Spectre 13's design certainly won’t be to everyone's taste, the laptop is technically very impressive. If it lives up to its claims, it could be a genuinely compelling machine. Its thin and light build are by far the most appealing features, and if performance holds up this could be a serious contender for the best ultraportable this year.

Intel HD Graphics 4600:

Integrated processor graphics card found on a number of Haswell CPU models. Offers varying clock speeds depending on the CPU.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

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).

Intel HD Graphics 5500: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in the Core processors of the Broadwell U-series (15 W TDP). 

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series).

Intel Core i5:

4202Y:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4200 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

4200U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

5200U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

6200U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

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.
