More Windows 8 Hardware announced – HP SPECTRE XT TOUCHSMART Ultrabook

HP have added their 10 cents into the battle for hearts and minds re: laptops, tablets and hybrids.

This time, they’re introducing the HP Spectre XT TouchSmart Ultrabook.

This laptop weights in at 4.77 pounds and 17.9 millimeters thick. It also has a Metro-capable touch screen to run Windows 8 on.

The edge-to-edge glass is also an attractive touch, though fingerprints remain a concern for some reviewers.

Ports on the model include Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0, and HDMI.

The base model is priced at $1,399, though it includes only a 500GB hard drive with 32GB of flash cache—options with a 128GB or 256GB solid-state drive cost extra.

    A very sharp looking machine, but I’m out of luck at that price!

    As it come with a touch screen, then it doesn’t need a touch pad. Instead, it should come with a wireless mouse. That’s perfect.
