90% Review: HP Spectre 13 notebook computer

Successfully competing with the various Macs on battery life is something to which Windows apparently doesn’t lend itself. These days Apple’s claiming a dozen hours of battery life for the MacBook Air, something it comes very close to actually achieving. So when you’re showing off your HP Spectre 13, you might want to just glide over battery life which, let’s face it, would be pretty impressive in any other context.

90% HP Spectre review: It's all about the looks
Source: Gadgets Now English version
There is no doubting the fact that the HP Spectre is a powerful and impressively built business-grade laptop. And its premium design further makes it stand out from the crowd. But even with all of that, the Spectre isn't without its shortcomings. A glossy reflective display, average battery life and limited connectivity options are all downers for the laptop.

85% HP Spectre Laptop Review
Source: Techspot English version
Compared to other Windows 10 laptops, the excellent Dell XPS 13 in the most similar configuration is available for $1,149. The XPS 13 delivers great battery life on a noteworthy design, but the Spectre is thinner and lighter. Lenovo’s Yoga 900 is $1,199 and includes a higher resolution display and a Core i7 as standard, which is another option at a similar price. All in all, the HP Spectre is a fantastic laptop that competes really well with the best Windows devices on the market and it is one of few ultrathin devices that don’t compromise on performance.

80% Australian Review: HP Spectre 13 - The Real Slim Shady

At the same time, the Spectre 13 offers more grunt than you'd typically find in a laptop of this stature, and makes less compromises than other ultra-thin notebooks thanks to multiple USB Type-C connectors. Out of the ultra-portables on the market, the Spectre 13 feels like the closest we've gotten to a super thin notebook that could be your primary computer (rather than just a secondary device). There's still a few compromises, but if you're okay with charging a little more often and using the odd USB Type-C adapter here and there,
