Dubbed the “premium ultrabook,” the Spectre bears all the features one seeks in a portable PC: a gorgeous 14-inch display, NFC support, an awesome trackpad, and a beautiful lid covered in Gorilla glass. The improved multitouch gestures make for swifter command execution, plus the assortment of ports (SD card reader, HDMI, etc.) expand the laptop’s multimedia capabilities. Beats Audio is still intact, only this time all volume is controlled by the volume dial on the bottom right side. You’re also given a mute button and a dedicated control panel button to toy with Beats settings.
