As part of its Windows 8 roll out, HP came through with a finely assembled 14" ultrabook that can go head-to-head with anything on the market. The Spectre sports an Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 128GB solid state drive, and Beats Audio sound processing and speakers for better sound than you'll get from most laptops.
