HWM (Philippines) - - Test -

If there was an award for the most stylish note­book, the HP Spec­tre would have eas­ily won it. It was clearly de­signed to stand­out. For a start, it is su­perbly slim and light, mea­sur­ing just 10.4mm thick and weigh­ing just 1.11kg. But most of all, it comes in an at­trac­tive shade of color that HP calls “dark ash with cop­per ac­cents.” We re­ally love the cop­per ac­cents.

The Spec­tre comes with a 13.3-inch IPS panel touch­screen dis­play pro­tected by Corn­ing Go­rilla Glass. The dis­play of­fers a res­o­lu­tion of 1,920 x 1,080 pix­els. Side by side com­par­isons against ri­vals with higher res­o­lu­tion dis­plays, showed it was no­tice­ably fuzzier. It doesn’t help also that the col­ors of the Spec­tre’s dis­play look a lit­tle washed out.

Un­der the prover­bial hood, the Spec­tre is out­fit­ted with In­tel’s lat­est eighth gen­er­a­tion Core pro­ces­sor - the quad­core Core i7-8550u. Com­ple­ment­ing the pro­ces­sor are 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. Over­all per­for­mance is above av­er­age.

What’s not so good, how­ever, is the Spec­tre’s bat­tery life last­ing just 159 min­utes or slightly more than two and a half hours. This was the short­est of all
