HP Spectre XT TouchSmart 15t Preview

|March 10 2013 |Laptops, HP

The HP Spectre XT 15t is a highly functional 15.6-inch Ultrabook that is sleek with just 0.87" and light with a weight of only 4.96 pounds. This ultrabook comes with a picturesque 1080p display, which is touch enabled and comes with unlimited viewing angles, heavy-duty performance from its Intel Core i7 processor and an incredible backlit keyboard. This Ultrabook has everything that is admirable.

The Spectre XT 15t is slim and has a very good build quality. The outer surfaces are covered in silver brushed aluminum which gives it a very classy look and feel. The chassis is strong and inflexible and its lid is resistant to twisting along with a rubberized base of the notebook.

The HP Spectre XT 15t is also very stylish with the silver border around the speakers and elegant beveled edges around the chassis and display. The palm rest including the keyboard surround is made of solid aluminum, strong and expensive.

The only downside of this Ultrabook is that it cannot be upgraded as its chassis is not assessable. The hard drive could potentially be replaced with an SSD and there's only one open RAM slot. However, there is not much to upgrade in the Spectre XT 15t apart from the storage drive.

The particular unit of the HP Spectre XT TouchSmart 15t that is used for the purpose of this review has a 15.6-inch touch-enabled display with 1920x1080 resolution, IPS panel, glossy surface. It is powered by Windows 8 64-bit, Intel Core i7-3517U dual-core processor with integrated Intel HD graphics and 8GB DDR3-1600 RAM, with a storage of 500GB 5400RPM hard drive + 32GB mSATA SSD. This device runs an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235 wireless LAN and has an integrated Bluetooth 3.0 and integrated HD webcam. It comes with a 2-year limited warranty from the company. The machine draws power from a 4-cell li-ion battery and has a price tag of $1,174.99.

The HP Spectre XT 15t is a complete package with great features in offering.
