HP Spectre XT Touchsmart will be the ultrabook to get
Well you probably read the Verge's excellent review of the HP Envy Spectre XT. Well I was skimming through the comments and saw a few who would genuinely buy it, but I say WAIT! HP did make a wonderful device with the 1st generation but this is even better. With a refined touchpad (first one was already good), thunderbolt, USB 3.0, full SD slot, and a bevy of other ports it wins among other laptops including MBA. The keyboard looks the same which was already considered good. The hinge looks so much better on the one shown above. It is a bit heaver (4 odd pounds) and thicker but still ultrabook range. Has a touchscreen which can be helpful for Windows 8. Battery life will be better with Windows 8. Has 500GB HDD or 128GB SSD or 256GB SSD for plenty of storage. And most importantly which will bump up the score of the ultrabook is the 1920x1080 screen. With all of the issues checked off we have an excellent machine.
