HP Spectre 13 Ultrabook review: a good deal, but with trade-offs

There's lots to like about the Spectre 13 -- especially given the low price. For the money, you can expect an attractive design, bright display, fast performance and a generous warranty. But you should also prepare yourself for middling battery life and one frustrating trackpad.

Pros
  • Attractive design
  • Fast performance
  • Good specs for the money
  • Bright display
  • Generous warranty, Adobe Lightroom included gratis
Cons
  • Heavy for a 13-inch Ultrabook
  • Middling battery life, especially considering the heft
  • Trackpad needs a driver update
  • Shallow keys have an occasionally "sticky" feel
