Series:

With everything getting slimmer, HP's Envy 14 Spectre is one of the reincarnations of ultrabooks by HP. Previous laptops which fell into Intel’s specification for ultrabooks were enclosed in either a 11” or 13” inch body. Only recently, we’ve been seeing new variations of these premium laptops.

The unique touch to this 14” HP envy Spectre would be its tough glass-covered design, which makes it not only stylish but also stays cool. Whilst Dell has used the Corning's scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass for the display of its XPS 13z and 14 ultrabooks, HP has goon a step further by covering the entire display, lid and arm rest with this glass. It feels durable and sleek at the same time. However, all this comes with a price, which is the slightly heavier feel to it but still remains lighter than many other laptops.

For a slim 14-inch ultrabook body, it comes with most requirements that are expected for a regular 14 “laptop. The available ports and the Beats powered audio system is certainly sufficient to cater for a regular mainstream use. Another major feature which sets it apart from the rest is it’s built in NFC chip. The near feel communication technology has already made its way through smart phones and it could potentially facilitate laptop users as well for wireless data transfer purposes. The multitouch touchpad also feels very responsive for a Windows laptop by far. The only downside to this ultrabook would be the asking price. A similarly equipped Dell XPS 14 ultrabook would cost at least €200 lesser.

13.30":

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.

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