This is a very nice high quality machine. HP calls this zero sacrifice, I am about 90% agree with that. Yes, every component is premium quality, but the construction gets maybe 95 out of 100, due to the trackpad installation and the opening problem I note below. Most importantly, they can't make its price competitive enough, but street price should come down later.
- look & design
HP copied ideas from Macbook, but have enough of their own. The glowing logo on the back made me laugh. Well, whatever they need to do to gain market share. However, once you go pass the black island keyboard on silver, that's where the similarity on look stops. They did put in a lot of thoughts and effort at being different and unique. Like the Gorilla glass covers that give it a much polished and shiny look. If you like shiny, you will like this. The back cover is separated from the aluminum body made with quality plastic you can easily open without tools. The sides has more curves and ridges around the ports etc. The black color of the cover and the thin borders around the display are very nice, making this 14" just slightly larger than a 13" physically overall. The palm rest is a piece of gorilla glass that looks and feels good, it also helps protecting the keys from the screen when closed.
- opening it & the distance the cover opens up
This is where HP fell short. They have a very short ridge on the cover that's suppose to give you an anchor to hold on to to open the screen, but it's too short, and there's not an indention on the body for you to put your finger into to grab the screen. So opening it is a slight struggle.Read more ›
The battery can be replaced as well as the RAM can be expanded and the SSD can also be upgraded. Albeit, not as easily as one would hope but easy enough as the manual walks you through it step by step. I've even found a battery replacement online that costs $120.00. Since there is only one Memory slot you can upgrade to 8GB and Amazon has a 8GB SODIMM that works for $51.99. Again, this takes some work and as the memory is not easily accessible. You can easily download the "Maintenance and Service Guide" from the HP website. There is even a link in the "Help and Support" link in the Start Menu.
This little laptop has far exceeded my expectations and is simply the best laptop I've ever purchased or received from an employer. It easily gets 5 stars. I could go into all the finer details but others here have taken care of that.
As far as the cost... After using this computer the cost is justified and when you really compare it to other Ultrabooks the price is a little more expensive but very competitive.
When shopping for a notebook you have two choices.
1. A mobile workstation
This device boasts strong battery life, low weight, portability, often connectivity, and the ability to run most office and some design programs on the road. The mobile workstation comes with the compromise of being less powerful (i.e. slower) than the top of the line computers on the market. Students, traveling professionals, and people who need more than one computer (for whom a tablet is not sufficient) are attracted to this category.
2. A replacement desktop
This device has a massive amount of computing power, often a stellar video card, and will perform any task that a home computer does with nearly equal aptitude. As a result, replacement desktop systems suffer from poor battery life and tend to weigh a ton. They come with big, beautiful screens and are designed for people who need to carry a lot of horsepower to different locations but don't need to pack the thing around in a briefcase or backpack. Gamers and video engineers are attracted to this category, as are people who only want one computer.
When judging a notebook it is important to use the metrics for which it was designed.
The HP Envy Spectre is an Ultrabook, which means it's a mobile workstation. This is not a computer designed for playing the latest games, rendering 3D scenes, running complex software synthesizers, or having 12 programs open at a time. It is a mobile office with superb battery life and an impressively bright screen (which will, in fact, significantly reduce your battery life if you use it at full power).Read more ›
The first one I received was defective right out of the box with an error message that read "cooling fan is not operating correctly," and proceeding to shut down automatically. HP's online support was great and offered to repair the notebook and pay for shipping both ways. Since the notebook was brand new, I opted to replace it with a new one from the seller. I totally understand that there are duds in every make and model, so it was not an issue for me to wait for a replacement.
I received my replacement notebook and waited with bated breath as it booted up. It made it to Windows. Time to celebrate right? Not quite.
Four days later as I plugged the notebook in, there was a spark, pop, and smoke. My laptop's power port and the adapter cord suffered scorch marks. I couldn't believe it. I hopped on to HP's chat support again(from another computer) and asked if they could take my notebook in for repair. The rep advised that they would send me a new adapter instead. Only if that didn't work, would they take my notebook for repair. A few days later I received a new adapter and attempted to plug it in. Spark, pop, and smoke. I hopped back on with the chat support folks and the rep agreed that they would take the notebook in for repair. I waited for the empty box and then shipped it out.
Today, I received a call from HP and they advised that they fixed my DC port but the motherboard connector is damaged and that is going to cost me $200+ to repair since it's not covered by the warranty.Read more ›

I'm surprised this computer is only $400 as of 12/26/2015. I purchased mine in 2012, and it still runs very well. Never had an issue. Read morePublished 1 month ago by damien
