4.3 / 5 stars (22 reviews) - Good For Productivity With One Caveat: Battery Life Latest review: December 25, 2016 | Model: HP Spectre 13-v021nr
I've owned the i7, 500gb version of the HP Spectre for the past week and here are my initial impressions... Gaming machine this is not. If you wanted one, this would be a 2-star rating. Get a beefier rig. If you're someone who doesn't always have easy access to a plug (e.g. a road warrior) and/or someone who hates being tethered to the wall, this is merely a 3-star rating laptop. IMO, the biggest sacrifice HP made, with such a small form factor, is the battery; it's just OK. This is my biggest complaint of the laptop. The other aforementioned cons were slight quibbles compared to the battery issue. Now if you're the student/office-type (like me) who normally has easy access to a plug and wanted a laptop that was capable yet portable, this is a solid option. The main thing keeping it from being a 5-star laptop is the meh battery life. If you can live with that, I can wholeheartedly recommend this machine.Reviewed by: and_rue | Read HP Spectre 13 reviews...
