HP Spectre 13t-3000
1. Pretty much as good as the best of the best Ultrabooks/MBAs out there
2. Better screen than MBA. equal to the QHD Samsung 9, Yoga 2, etc,
3. Amazingly solid build. Every bit the equal of MBA or Samsung 9, better keyboard than latter, equal to former.
4. With 20% discount coupons HP was having on/off (day to day) throughout November - February you can buy this with 8GB/256GB/QHD Touchscreen/Intel 7260AC wifi for about $1,100
5. The only con with this model is a less than wonderful backlit keyboard. it works fine when it's very dark, but only then. When not very dark you really don't need to have the backlight on but common practice might have you turn on the keyboard light sooner than this one's ready and able to perform. Pretty easy adjustment, but you need to know.
Without any coupons or discount, this is still a lovely and competitive product, but perhaps more a question of "gimmics" you want, ie, yoga/xps 12 tablet conversion.
