Reviews for the HP Envy Spectre XT 13-2050nr

80% HP Envy Spectre XT (13-2050nr)

The Spectre XT may not be the very best ultrabook we've reviewed, but it's one of the better systems, especially among ultrabooks selling for under $1,000. Performance gets a boost from a zippy solid-state drive, while battery life and display are only so-so. The Toshiba Portege Z935-P300 remains our Editors' Choice, offering a similar combination of features and performance for less, but the Spectre XT will likely win some hearts with its handsome design and solid performance.

The HP Envy Spectre XT is a 13-inch Ultrabook laptop that has great performance, a comfortable backlit keyboard and a sleek design. It does lack in screen resolution and has a noisy fan but it's an overall good buy for less than $1000.

The ultrabook market is bubbling like a cauldron, with a slew of affordable hard drive-based (rather than SSD-based) models now on sale; a few high-end options to tempt well-to-do executives; and a crop of touch-screened (and hence a bit heavier and thicker) Windows 8 ultrabooks due to arrive along with Microsoft's new OS this fall.

As the current flagship of HP's laptop line, the new Envy Spectre XT certainly packs a lot of names into one product. This is a premium ultrabook, and our understanding is that the Spectre designation now indicates a level of product above HP's already high-end Envy line. A high-end laptop at a mainstream price, the HP Envy Spectre XT gets much of the look and feel right, with only a few missteps.

75% HP Envy Spectre XT

Though we gave the HP Envy Spectre XT a bit of a hard time for not bringing anything new to the table, it's still a very strong Ultrabook that's good looking and well made. The metal casing gives it a premium look and the internals don't skimp: fast SSD drives, dual band Intel wireless with WiDi and Bluetooth 4.0 are top notch. The display is better than average for clarity and viewing angles, though the resolution is commonplace.

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.
