Was looking at an Quad Core XPS 15 on offer at John Lewis and came across this beauty for those than prefer compact design over outright premium power.

Other are offering refurbs for the same money.

New, these machines go for £1,200.

Bargain to get change out of £1000 for the worlds thinnest ultrabook.

Product information

Sleek, slim and striking, the HP Spectre 13 laptop is constructed from carbon fibre and aluminium, and is the world's thinnest laptop*, measuring a mere 1.04cm in thickness and weighing just over 1kg for optimum portability. It features a 6th-generation Intel Core i7 processor to give you the power to seamlessly blitz through your workload as you travel from one appointment to the next.

Intel® Core™ i7 processor
HP Spectre 13 laptop's processor together with 8GB of RAM means you can breeze through your computing needs, as you have enough power to take on more intensive tasks, such as photo and video editing as well as 3D gaming. Featuring a 'Turbo Boost' that will unleash more power when you need it, so you can handle more programmes and intensive tasks without the computer slowing down.

Speedy SSD
Speediness is maintained as the Spectre 13 is constructed with a 512GB solid state drive instead of a hard drive, ensuring you'll reboot in under a minute and keep the momentum going throughout your computing sessions.

Stunning display
Spectre 13 is built with a Full HD, Corning® Gorilla® Glass display to deliver bright, sharp visuals and optimum durability to reduce the risks of it shattering when put under pressure.

Running Windows 10
Delivering the everyday with an individual touch, Windows 10 gives you access to all of your favourite apps and an improved navigation. It provides an instant start up, quick movement between applications, prompts for available updates and personalised experience. This operating system features Cortana, which learns what's important to you and retrieves relevant updates when needed. Windows 10 also comes with 15GB of free OneDrive storage, Continuum 3 to adjust your apps and content, and Xbox app to let you easily connect with your gaming community.

Software included:
◾HP Lounge (1 year Universal Music Group)
◾HP Support Assistant
◾CyberLink photo- and video-editing suite

Better be quick!
Save £310 until 31.01.17 (Saving applied)

Have one of these, its a nice, not cheap laptop, but surprisingly not touch screen. Also if important to you only has the type C ports mean you have to get an adapter to connect hdmi, LAN etc
#5
So many variations within spectre. Any particular processor preferred? Keep reading comments on specific versions of i7 processors which are preferred over the others. Any insight will be helpful
#6
Worth noting that I don't think the memory banks on this can be upgraded

Didn't look whether the same laptop but looks similar for the same price at Currys (after the 10% off all marked prices applied): http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/hp-spectre-13-v051na-13-3-laptop-dark-grey-copper-10146247-pdt.html

Might be handier for some but also indicates not quite the deal it would first seem.

But John Lewis has 3 years free Guarantee as well and 90 day returns policy which will drop to 35 days from tomorrow.

I guess you can buy it today from JL and if in the next 3 months it gets cheaper, one could return or ask for a refund on the price drop??

Why do you think you'd be entitled to return it if the price drops in the next 3 months exactly?

I'd prefer a full fat i7 this low energy one is no better than an i3 in reality.

You will need to go to a 15" plus screen form for something like:

Pay an extra £40 and get a HP Spectre x360 13-4129na this one, it has QHD display far better value from John Lewis.
#14
Nice but this is the 2015 model, so I'd rather pay slightly more and purchase the newer model
#15
I bought a Spectre, very pleased with it. If you need a case look out for the one HP sell for £120, they are absolutely superb... picked one up a lot cheaper on eBay

​ditto
procrastinated for too long and missed out
#20
actually ended up buying this
beautiful laptop, but the most God awful cumbersome power supply
took it back for full refund
thinnest laptop in the world.....
true
then they went to the 1992 parts bin for ancillaries
even the USB converter was clunky and poor

The new generation 7th generation i7 laptops are out. The theme on the treads was that the 6th generation will take a big hit in price. From what I'm seeing, there going out of stock without having to put on clearance offers.

The new version of this laptop will cost you £1,400.

If you are happy with the 6th generation i7 with 500GB SSD with 3 years JL guarantee, all for less than £1000, you can still get it.

How?

Currys PC World have it on offer for £1,100 but with 10% is your for £989.99. JL have agreed to price match so instead of getting 1 year guarantee, you can get 3 years. I think that's the best return on £1000 on a 13" ultrabook and don't see you getting more for less in the near future.

the new model is probably worth waiting for and the extra money... read the reviews

I sat there looking at a Dell XPS 13 ultrabook from 2013 (an L322x) and realised we haven't moved on all that far. I do get ultrabooks and the need for thinner and faster but in terms of speed there haven't been massive gains, they're more efficient but we're losing overall capacity due to the quest for being thinner and being 'too thin' means you need a better case to protect it when not in use (hands up if you've ever caused a pressure mark inadvertently on a small machine).

I love seeing the latest tech trends but I couldn't find any compelling reason to choose something like this over a 'very good' ultrabook from a couple of years ago and save £500-600, unless I had money to burn and had to be seen with the bleeding edge.

I voted hot as I know this is a good price in terms of engineering and design (not necessarily value).

Really nice looking laptops, personally I'm waiting for the X360 version with a stylus, or a cheap surface book.

Yeah I think same with you... I don't know if it's just inflation, but am on the market for a laptop and all seem so hight in price, my Sony vaio I bought about 4 years ego is now falling in prices. I would imagine, the Dell Xps having better value if you want to sell it in the future. For instance I see 2 years old Dell being listed on eBay for no less than £600

Not a surprise, most manufacturers have now realised that a touchscreen goes largely unused. If the laptop converted to a tablet whereby it's handheld then a touchscreen is useful. There are applications where a touchscreen is useful for example drawing, as long as the touchscreen is pressure sensitive, wacom etc, but most consumers aren't using the laptop for that. I work for a large IT refurbisher and I sell laptops retail, almost no one wants a touchscreen on a laptop form factor.
