The HP Spectre

Corinne - November 28, 2016

I have been all consumed with University for the past few months, I’ve loved getting back into routine despite any stress that comes hand-in-hand with coursework. It may sound a bit boring, but after a year off from my studies, I am grateful for any regularity that has come back into my daily life. And in August I was tirelessly searching for an important piece of equipment for my education and for blogging: my first laptop. img_0494 img_0492

I was always very happy with my desktop, but when it came to portability it just would not do. In my previous years of study, I used my iPad but to say it has past it’s best days is an understatement. I want a device that could pack a punch. Portable, lightweight, powerful processor for editing pictures and an all round wonderful machine. The HP Spectre caught my full attention, and here is why:

  • It is currently the thinnest ultrabook on the market. However, at 13 inches it is a little wider than the new MacBook.
  • Amongst all of the reviews that I found online it was frequently in top 5 laptops (2016).
  • In the classic ‘MacBook vs Windows’ argument, I considered windows software to be a better option in the long run.
  • The gorgeous ash silver and copper hardware design. I can’t lie this may have swayed me more than it should have.
  • The keyboard is so satisfying to type on. It has a proper clickety-click noise and tap to the keys even though there isn’t a huge distance on them.

For some time I considered caving and just buying a MacBook because that’s what other bloggers use but after 3 months in of using the HP spectre every day, I can confirm that I am pleased with my choice. I’ve had no trouble taking it into university, and the sound quality of the speakers is pretty good for times when I just want to Netflix and chill. Due to the i7 processor, the start-up speed is super quick, and it seems to handle multiple tasks open simultaneously fine. The picture quality is brilliant. The screen shows bright contrasting colours (perfect for photos).

What laptop do you use?
