First, this ultrabook is awesome! Starts up fast, thanks to the 128gb SSD. High quality brushed aluminum casing, USB 3.0 connection, HDMI output, WiDi connectivity and backlit keyboard.

Now, for the not awesome part (this is for me. for other users, this might be sufficient..), only 4gb of ram, and it's on-board, meaning not upgradable. Ram prices are cheap nowadays and it would be more awesome if the ram is not on-board so you could put an 8gb stick. One more thing, there's no option for a higher resolution screen. 1366x768 is nice for 13 inch, but a 1600x900 would be a nice option. 1 USB 3.0 and 1 USB 2.0, now why not just both 3.0?

If you buy this directly from HP, there is an option to upgrade to an i7 proc, and 256gb SSD. But still no option for a higher on-board ram, or higher resolution screen.

- Core i5 IVY bridge processor, ULV - The processor is a ULV version (Ultra-Low Voltage). This is slower compared to full-pledged i5 processor. All ultrabooks have the ulv processors. The number one advantage of this is lower TDP (low wattage), which means longer battery life for the notebook. In return, the performance is slower too. The i7 ulv version is only dual core compared to the quad core for regular i7 non-ulv.

- HD4000 graphics - This is considerably faster than the older HD3000 found from the sandy bridge processors. You should get 30~40% increase in performance, so you should be able to play even the latest games, but not with high settings. This can even outperform older dedicated gpu like nvidia gt620m

- 128gb SSD - Fast reads and writes compared to a regular HDD. Windows bootup and shutdown is quick as well as opening up applications. Upon logging in to windows, you can even click the internet explorer and start browsing.

Pros: Great design and features. You get full Adobe Elements photo and video editing software, and two full years of Norton. Keyboard is well set up and has decent travel when compared to the samsung series 9 or asus machines (at hundreds of $ less, i might add) and the trackpad is excellent--smooth and responsive.

Many blogs and reviewers gripe about the screen, but at 13.3 inch, the resolution works. I briefly had the higher-res Spectre 14 and the higher res screen made things a little too small on this size machine--don't get me wrong, it was a gorgeous screen aside from the defects I experienced on two separate models, but the XT screen does the job well. Build quality is very good for windows based machine. Specs are good too--Ivy Bridge i5, 4 gig of ram and a speedy SSD.

Boot up time is minimal and it awakes from sleep almost instantaneously. Battery seems decent too. From what I can tell so far, I get roughly 5-6 hours out of it. Minimal bloatware. This machine feels light and sturdy. I get the feeling it will last me several years. On board speakers are decent, but i probably wont be using them much. I didn't buy this for beats audio, but listening through a pair of good headphones is great.

Cons: Although it is a well built machine from HP, it isn't perfect. Screen wobbles a bit and the underside has a soft-grip, but plastic quality to it. The SSD is fast, but a lot of the space is eaten up by the system restore partition. I'd rather have that space and put the system restore on an SD card or something. Out of the box, you're looking at about 70 gig available. But with SSD, you trade speed for space. And this thing is fast.

I think the screen is nice, but the colors don't blow me away.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a beautiful thin and light computer with a fast processor and solid state drive. The brushed aluminum on top (behind the screen) and around the keyboard (where you put your wrists) is very nice looking and doesn't show fingerprints easily. (We also own an HP Envy 4-1030us 14-Inch Ultrabook (Black) which has a brushed black aluminum finish and that shows fingerprints very readily.) The bottom is silver colored plastic and blends well with the rest of the laptop.

This is an Ultrabook, a designation owned by Intel (the maker of the computer chips inside this laptop) to designate thin and light computers featuring their products. This computer is an excellent example of what they are trying to encourage. My scale weighs it at 3 lbs 2 oz and my calipers measure it at 0.68" at the widest dimension.

The 13.3" screen looks great (resolution of 1366x768) although it is glossy instead of matt. It isn't going to "wow" anyone, but it is a fine screen and a decent resolution for the size. There is a great loss of fidelity if the screen is tilted too far up or down, but it is easy to get a position where it looks fine. Off axis (someone sitting to your side), it is much better with just a little degradation until you get to extreme angles. 13.2" is a good size to be both portable and useable. 15" and above is just too big and below 12.5" I feel it is too small.

The keyboard is composed of flat and square keys and is full sized. It has a backlight that I think it the right intensity (the 14 inch Envy I have it too bright) so it isn't overpowering when using your computer in a darkened room (e.g. while watching TV).
