Benefits

The HP Spectre 13-W010CA has been designed from the ground up to be a perfect travel companion and HP has done a recently nice job of making it light and mobile starting with the feather like weight of just 1.44 Kg. Not only is it light but it is extremely slim at just 0.54 inches, that is about half the thickness of most common new laptops. It is easy to see why a person on the go would fall in love with this laptop very quickly.

Not only is it light and slim but with its 360 degree convertible design can be used in just the exact mode depending on what task you have before you. You could by typing out a document in laptop mode one minute, reading emails while on the go in tablet mode the next, then watching your favorite movie in stand mode after that. It really is a very versatile laptop that adapts quickly to your current needs.

Its hard to believe that HP was able to add much for ports due to how slim they made the laptop but they have, starting with 3 USB ports that all run on the latest and greatest 3.0 technology, HDMI for when the time calls for a bigger display and of course Bluetooth has been integrated for all your devices to communicate with it.

Downsides

When looking at performance one would expect plenty out of the HP Spectre 13-W010CA due to the high end price tag but they might be surprised by what is actually inside. Now this isn’t budget hardware but the Intel Core i5 and 8 GB memory isn’t overly impressive when you consider this hardware can be found in laptops half the price.

Not surprisingly there was no room left over on this design to include an optical drive and if this is a must have feature for you an external device is your only option.

Verdict

When you put up the money that is required to purchase the HP Spectre 13-W010CA your really paying for the amazing design when it comes to weight and thickness and this is an area that is very impressive. If top end performance is your goal you may be disappointed with the average specifications it has under the hood.
