HP SPECTRE 13 – Review
Source: The Techy English
With top notch specs and impressive design, these are the sort of indulgencies you should invest in without giving it a second thought. It isn’t traditional and uses USB Type C port for charging and transfering content. The battery life falls short and if you can compromise on both of the things, then, “Go buy it, period!”

81% HP Spectre 13 Intel Core i7 Review
Source: Think Digit English
Beauty and brawns are hard to get, and HP couldn’t get it completely right either. The company came close, though, and the Spectre 13.3 is meant for those who want the world’s slimmest laptop above all else. For practical users, the Dell XPS 13 and Macbook Air make better, and cheaper buys.

80% Supreme quality design
Source: Pocket Lint English
It works, particularly as the build quality, screen colour and contrast, keyboard and trackpad are all sound. The use of a punchy Intel Core i7 CPU is great in power terms, but it does mean the Spectre 13 is both noisier and less long-lasting than you might hope for.

Ultra-thin and ultra-lovely
Source: It Pro English
The Spectre 13 is a fantastic ultraportable in its own right. Put the middling battery life to one side and it really doesn’t put a foot wrong. If eye-catching design is as important to you as a great display, brilliant keyboard and solid performance, then this is a featherweight tour de force.

80% HP Spectre 13 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Spectre 13 is designed with a specific audience in mind and we have a feeling that this kind of buyer wouldn't mind spending a lot of money for the ultimate in portability, not to mention the engineering that has gone into making the Spectre 13 so slim and yet powerful. It's a stunning laptop from pretty much every angle. The gold accents might a bit too 'blingy' for some but others will love the design. The build, performance and display quality all really shine. We like the fact that you get multiple ports for connecting peripherals and that the adapters are bundled in the box. On the downside, battery life could have been better and the fan does get noisy when you're doing any graphics intensive work.

80% A stunning ultra-portable laptop that will have you reaching for your wallet
Source: PC Advisor English
The HP Spectre 13 is desperate to appear a laptop of the future, and that comes with substantial pros and cons. Its supreme portability is quite wonderful, and while its design may polarise, it certainly is fancy. There's substance too, with a surprisingly powerful CPU for a laptop this thin and solid build in the keyboard and trackpad. Its message is a little confused, though. The processor courts enthusiasts, but that's exactly who's likely to be most annoyed by the lack of memory card slot and a traditional USB port. There's an audience for the Spectre 13, but if you've not signed-up to a wireless way of working yet you may want to think twice.

100% HP Spectre 13 review - the new ultraportable king
Source: Expert Reviews English
Thinner than a MacBook and elegantly designed, the HP Spectre 13 is up there with the best ultraportables. Sure, it may be a little pricey at upwards of £1,150, but it's pretty much unrivalled at the moment, with nothing Windows-based even coming close to this super thin and powerful ultraportable. Obviously, if you're not a big fan of Windows, then the 2016 MacBook is for you.

The gold finish might make it look more like a clutch bag than a laptop, but there’s no question the Spectre makes an impression - and that aggressive new HP logo is just the start. In the style stakes, it’s the biggest threat to Apple’s ultraportable crown since Dell’s carbon-clad XPS 13. It also ticks all the boxes when it comes to performance, and outmatches the Mac with multiple USB-C ports. The touchpad might be a bit tricky at times, but the excellent keyboard more than makes up for it.

Otherwise, the HP Spectre is a hit in our book, but it's higher price tag may sway you towards picking up a more affordable option, like the Dell XPS 13, Samsung Notebook 9, Asus ZenBook UX305, or any of the other myriad Ultrabooks out there. One thing here is for absolute certain: Apple better look out because it's no longer the only one that can make a luxury laptop with stunning performance to back it up.

HP Spectre 13 Review: Thin requires compromise
Source: Slashgear English
Were this an ideal world, the Spectre 13 would have touch and run for longer without increasing in size. Right now, though, that's just not feasible, and if you're one of the people who is telling HP that supreme skinniness in an ultraportable is the number one goal, this is what those ambitions get you.

70% HP Spectre

System builders continue to sacrifice power for portability, in a trend that’s concerning to those of prefer laptops with a little get-up-and-go under the hood. The HP pushes back on that decline in power by packing a competitive CPU into an expressive, thin, chassis.

Comment

Model: The HP Spectre 13-v000ng is claimed to be the world’s thinnest laptop. It is designed for ultra-portability on-the-go. Its lid is dark gray with golden accents, which gives the device a classy and premium look. Although it is thin, the laptop performs well in stability. Thanks to a solid and sturdy chassis from carbon fiber and metal neither lid nor base-unit can be easily twisted.

The Microsoft Windows 10 64-bit Home system features a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7-6500 processor, an integrated Intel HD Graphics 520 graphic card, 8 GB LPDDR3-1600 SDRAM RAM and a 256 GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD. Its 13.3-inch Full HD UWVA BrightView display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass and features a WLED backlight and provides accurate colors.The backlit keyboard offers a satisfying, easy and comfortable typing experience. The connectivity includes two USB 3.1 Gen2 ports, a USB 3.1 Gen 1 port and a audio combo jack. The laptop weighs only 1.11 kg and its battery life can last up to 5 hours.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.  
6500U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.
