Y do you need a touch screen? If you use this laptop, how many times will you touch the screen on a daily basis?
Mr andrew i have subcribe your chanel..my i ask it can run ms office 2016 .,,, please
Hay ....may i ask does spectre 13 ( 2017 ) can run MS OFFICE 2016 ..i will buys perhap ?
It is two years later and HP has a model that falls in between the 2016 and the thing quad core 2018 model with a dual core I7. I call it: "the wolf in sheep clothes". The looks of this laptop was what floored me and made me curious to look at it, even in late 2018. So I bought one, I also have worked on many other laptops and none was a thin as this one. One thing that impressed me and that is the typing, I know this is one model later than you reviewed. What is impressive to me might not be impressive to others. The hard drive issue, I want to address this first. These are Samsung PM961 drives. The Surfacebook 2 has a similar drive and performs just as "poor". What a lot of people forget is that this drive has it's own caching options and running this through UserBenchMark will show the drive to be performing exceptionally well. That being said, the fan gets loud easily, it does not seem to have a spin up, just goes into full blast like my furnace or air conditioner. However the thunderbolt ports, being able to push a UHD screen at 4k at 60hz easily is amazing. Even for a 2017 model in 2018. It is actually super useful using this one with two monitors if needed. The battery life is not something I am concerned with I can even bring a battery pack with 20k Amps and keep the machine running or many more hours on USB-C. Simplicity: Darn HP got it right, the speaker system, the keyboard, the simple on/off button and this one does not have Windows Hello yet, but the 2018 model does.
Why I prefer this over the X360 us immediately clear from the get go: The looks of this thing are like a Ferrari to a BMW, where the X360 represents the BMW. It is a privilege to work on this sucker, but I would love to have the option to 16Gb using all the lanes of to support the Intel 620. I can always hook up an external GPU through the thunderbolt ports... Something that the Surfacebook 2 lacks and even the later 2018/2019 models. I think HP got a lot right here, I want to get my hands on a newer model and see how it performs.
Love your reviews Andrew - keep them coming - even when someone in 2018 responds to a 2 year old video.
is it good for university?
The track pad I though sucked as well at first. But just go into the synaptics track padding settings under smartsense and adjust it. The trackpad becomes so much better. Also upgrade to the latest BIOS if you are using the version of Windows 10 Pro. Once you have done all that the latptop is really good. I got mine used for $650.00.
I've just ordered one of these for uni. Hoping it gets me through the next four years ☺️
Nice Review! I'm going to buy the Mac 💻 book 12inch
Both speakers are Bang and Olufsen you say - so not just one plus a cheap one?
Thank You, I am 71 year old and I.T. shops just want to sell their rubbish to us oldies, to them it does not matter, so we need people like you to talk in our language with no waffle. Thank You. Frome Stephanie C.
ima buy this
Why people keep whining about no touch screen on laptop? If you want touch screen just get an iPad
is worth to buy that laptop for high school and gaming (gta v, rocket league ) in 2017
Just picked one up for £440, bargain.
i own this laptop
Man you have no knowledge really ...
How repetitive is this guy. He says the same thing over and over again in slightly different ways. Seriously, is there some additional revenue stream from unnecessarily long videos? Is this why every youtuber loves the sound of their own voice?
Undeniable is the fact that you can't beat the looks though. If you're buying strictly for the aesthetic and the design, which is the best in my opinion, there really is not other alternative for this.
Thanks for the honest review
Calls it a finger print magnet wants it to have a touch screen. Recommends a more expensive Mac less powerful Mac just because of the screen and battery.
Wish If I have got this one.
Please any link to purchase this machine?
ممكن سعر الجهاز
hey which do u think is the best for heavy music production (im strictly gonna use it to make music and need it to be portable because i need to move it around as well)
hp spectre 13 i7 8550u
hp elitebook 840 g5 i5 8250u
hp zbook studio g4 i5 7300hq (4cores 4 threads instead of 8)
ive heard that u series are bad for working with programs/DAWs because its just not powerful enough. but on the other hand i have an option to go hq but with less threads. which one do u suggest? all of them have 16 ram which is perfect for me and all of them cost around the same price like 700$ second hand
We're in 2020, I wonder if this laptop is still worth buying considering I need a new one. And this one always caught my eye..
I've got the black edition, and I can say with confidence that it is by far the best ultrabook I've ever used. I bought it in 2017 alongside two of my friends who got a Surface, and a MacBookPro at that time. Both of them have changed chargers, had to part with their piece for several weeks for some hardware/software bugs/issues, and one of them had to format last year. I never touched anything on Spectre and it runs as smoothly as the first day I got it, and I am being serious here. It is truly a piece of mastery and I a proud to own one. It feels like a laptop built to accompany you through the digitalization era. It responds well and accurately, although Cortana sometimes pops up on her own. It records all my personal data and activity so I can have a better idea of myself when time is relevant. My digital twin will be also easier to construct thanks to the backup data collected by HP. This is an intro into the future that awaits us. I am currently looking for a new side-laptop for coding / visual software and if there was a Spectre 2020 I'd grab it. For now, I might go with the Surface as it seems to be the 2nd best combo of fine aesthetic, performance, characteristics, lifespan, and price, after Spectre laptop.
Hi do you know if the ceramic white spectre will be made into a 360 version ? Can’t seem to find any answers online. Thanks
Green has a green tint
And in french ;) i’m french and is compliqued
If I am looking for an i5, Full HD, 256 GB, 8GB, white laptop- (I only do light work, no gaming or video editing), would you recommend the HP spectre 2017, or the XPS 13 9380? (I know it's a strange comparison with many differences and that one is brand new and the other is 2 yrs old, but I absolutely love the look of the HP more than the XPS 13, however, the battery life is a major difference and I can not find where to even buy the HP spectre with those specs. What do you think? Any advice please?
This and e gpu 1 gr on your lap 2080 ti on your desk
Love the nerdy shirts :D
Dear Lisa, Do you know where I could find a 13 inch screen for a 2017 HP spectre laptop like the one you reviewed here, Have a cracked screen on current one. Thanks for your help,Kenkewright007@gmail.com
not a bad review Getting mine soon though I Probably use a USB fan tray to sit it on
I'm not a tech guy. I was looking at buying one of these for Christmas 2018. I watched another video and people were talking about meltdowns and spectre vulnerbilities? Can you explain? Should I worry? Or go with something else?
Thanks for the review Lisa! Is the HP spectre 13 still worth getting? I'm planning on using it mostly for productivity work and maybe a little bit of android studio.
Dell XPS 13” is a much better laptop for the money... very reliable too!
Can you upgrade de SSD? Im looking forward the 256gb model for college, but if needed can I change the SSD?
This is a really great review, thank you.
Hi, Lisa. Im looking for this laptop everywhere, but I can't find it. Neither the HP website. Im looking for youtube videos to know where to buy it, but I found no info. Can I know where did you get the laptop or another place I cand buy the laptop? Many thanks.

Bagus siikk... tp lebay. Ada uangnya jg ga mau 😂. Belas2an, max 20 msh oke. Tp kl 35jeti. No!.
Still proud of that orbit at 3:29. Thought I'd died but realized after 3 orbits that I was still alive and managed to continue it. Really solid improvement from the previous model, and I think it's $200 cheaper as well.
It’s not 1 hand open u liar
in terms of design no one can beat hp
Hp spectre is suitable for an art student?
spectre or Envy? help me choose one :(
I personally own this model and believe it actually doesn't come with two thunderbolt 3 ports. The one flush along the left side appears to be a TB 3 port while the one on the "diamond edge" seems to be a USB 3.1 10Gbps Type C port. They look the same due to the port design but I noticed when I use a thunderbolt 3 dock connected to the corner port many Type-A ports on the dock go "dead" due to lack of bandwidth (I also push 2 4K monitors at 60Hz). However, this stops being the case when I connect my dock to the side port. Now maybe someone out there can tell me the bad news that I have a defective corner port and that I should have two real TB3 ports.
Is anyone going to mention that these things have a tendency to have failing motherboards. Meaning when they do fail, you’re screwed. HP hasn’t taken responsibility for this issue or initiated any recalls. My I just had mine give out - I’m very angry right now.
What does it mean by privacy filter
6 months later still £1600 in UK. that's like $2000usd
I'm not really sure but, I couldn't really find the base model of 900$
Would you recommend this laptop for video editing and slight photoshop use?
Only downside seems to be the weak audio. Too bad
Thanks for the review! May I ask if this is released in March 2020 or the late 2019 model?
Highly annoyed they’re using beef jerky leather or even leather at all.
Theu have a front camera?
Can you please do a comparison with the Macbook Air 13? I'm seriously torn. Been struggling with deciding for weeks.
would definitely like to emphasize the point about the privacy screen and the vewing angle. it affects it so much that if you arent looking at the laptop straight on any slight lean back or forward of the screen or of yourslef really affects the experience and is very noticeable. make sure the screen tech specs dont have "sure view". unfortunately i had to op for the more expensive 4k as the none sure view screens are nowhere to be found
What's the name of that game?
Model no pls
