HP Spectre XT hands-on
HP Spectre XT - technical specs
Inside, the Spectre XT that we got our paws on came with a Core i7 Ivy Bridge processor - so, plenty of bang for your Ultrabook. It also packed in 4GB of RAM, though others had different configurations. The XP is fitted with a 128GB SSD as standard - so it should be able to get at your precious data in a hurry - though a 256GB SSD is available as an optional extra.
HP describes the Spectre XT's 13.3in screen as "HD," though it's keeping schtum on the exact resolution. The XT also comes with Intel's Rapid Start and Smart Connect, the former for quick boot and resume times - which we'll put to the test in a full review - the latter for updating e-mail while the laptop's in sleep mode. HP claims up to eight hours of battery life for the Spectre XT, though you'll have to wait for a full review before we can see how close that is to reality.
