Specs

Processor: Intel Core i7-7500U

Memory: 8 GB of RAM

Storage: 256 GB SSD

Screen: 13.3 Non-Touchscreen

OS: Windows 10

Benefits

If performance is key then you have come to the right place as the HP Spectre 13-V118CA comes fully equipped to handle just about anything you would dare throw its way due to its very powerful Intel Core i7 processor which is also backed up by enough memory to prevent it from bogging down with 8 GB.

Performance isn’t the only thing that this laptop model does well, it is also a great option for those on the move that need something very portable. With a total weight of just 1.11 Kg and a slim thickness of 0.41 inches it easily blows away the competition when it comes to mobility.

Even with the smaller and sleeker design HP has done a fantastic job of including plenty of must have external ports starting with USB. While many new models limit USB to just 2 ports and only have one running on the newer and much faster 3.0 technology the 13-V118CA has 3 ports and each one of them is 3.0.

Downsides

We can’t ignore that fact that the HP Spectre 13-V118CA is going to set you back a small fortune due to its hefty price tag and this is going to make it a difficult sell to students or just anybody in general who is on a budget.

The smaller 13.3 inch screen is one of the main reasons that they have been able to design this laptop to be so slim and lightweight but for those that need or just enjoy the larger screen if making an adjustment from something bigger this might be a turn off.

Verdict

Powerful and portable is exactly what the HP Spectre 13-V118CA offers and if you ignore cost for a bit this laptop is perfect for consumers who fit this category but back in the real world cost always has to be considered. This may not be the best bet for somebody who is strapped for cash but if you can afford the higher price tag it seems to be a laptop model that is well worth it.
