The second son of the Specter family does not offer his brother's unique glass-combined design - but it is lighter, thinner and cheaper than it. Will hit stores early next month
Premium-Ultrabook Envy Spectre HP was one of the most prominent In category At the CES 2012 exhibition, both due to a large advertising campaign prior to its exposure and because of its unique design that combined cladding Gorilla Glass Length and width of the mobile.
Now HP displays Ultrabook Envy Specter Plus, for those of us for whom the initial price of 1,400 dollars (as was the first Spectre) is not really winking.
The first time you noticeEnvy Spectre XT Is the design - the bright black color and the glassGorilla Glass Gone, and those replace a more standard aluminum body. Although the Specter XT loses its brother's uniqueness, it should be noted that this is still a mobile phone that looks pretty good when the first experiences also reported good building quality and standing-looking.
The 14-inch Radiance Display panel is being replaced by a simpler 13.3-inch panel with a resolution of 1366 × 768 (this time too, experimenters reported a quality that is seemingly higher than what you would find in an average Ultrabook), but this seems to end the compromises of the Specter XT - its version The cheapest of the Ultrabooks will include a 128GB SSD drive, 4GB RAM, Chicklet keyboard with backlight, USB 3.0 connection, USB 2.0 connection, Ethernet connection, full-size HDMI connection, SD card reader, support for WiDi technology Intel, editorial board Windows 7 and a battery that should provide up to eight hours of work.
HP-specific "bonuses" include a Beats sound system that includes four speakers, a technology called CoolSense that is supposed to keep your laptop cool in any situation, copies of Photoshop Elements and Premier Elements software, and a two-year license for Norton Internet Security.
HP notes that the processor that will run the Specter XT will belong toThe new Ivy Bridge generation של Intel, But do not say what the specific model is - probably because the current ULV processors for Ultrabooks have not yet been officially introduced. We bet on Core i5-3317U or Core i5-3427U double-core.

The Specter XT surpasses the exterior Specter in terms of exterior dimensions, with a thickness of about 14.5 millimeters and a weight of a little less than 1.4 kilograms (compared to close to 20 millimeters and about 1.7 kilograms respectively for the first Specter). The icing on the cake is probably the price tag, which starts at $ 1,000 - $ 400 less than the starting price of the previous Specter.
This is still a price higher than 200 or more than the initial price of other otterboks in the market, but if HP You can offer qualities that do not exist in those cheaper models - there is no doubt that the Specter XT could be a success story.
The Envy Specter XT will go on sale on June 8 - a date that fits well with Previous reports With regard to the launch date of theIvy Bridge (Except for the expensive QM processors launched with the fixed models at the end of last month).
updating: HP vice president of industrial design, Stacey Wolff, He responded To claims that have spread across the network that the new Specter XT "borrows" a little too much visual elements from the "Big Daddy" of the thin mobile category - the MacBook Air, of course.
Wolf first summed up briefly "There are similarities between many things in the world. We did not try to emulate Dark In no way - they may think they own a silver color, but they do not ", in a subsequent interview, Wolf explained his position and said that between the models there are similarities but also quite a few differences, From home Dark Because it is a product with a similar configuration, and these elements are the general direction of the entire market.
Somehow, it's hard for us to believe that these things will convince the various proponents to change their minds - those who are convinced that most manufacturers today are blatantly copying Apple will continue to think so, and so are those who believe that Dark Is a runaway company that manipulates its competitors in vain will probably not be so easily convinced that this is not really the case.
