HP reveals Spectre XT Ultrabook

Updates laptop with thinner design and Ivy Bridge chip

HP has taken the wraps off its Spectre XT Ultrabook laptop.

The Spectre XT is the follow-up to the Spectre which was announced at the consumer electronics show (CES) in January. It fits Intel’s Ultrabook requirements measuring in at a slender 14.5mm and 1.4kg.

HP said the Spectre XT is "an ultramobile premium Ultrabook that delivers an overall premium experience with extraordinary design and performance" and will be available at the end of June with prices starting at £899.

Specifications include a third generation Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 processor, a 128GB or 256GB solid state drive (SSD) and a 13.3-inch HD LED backlit display. The Ultrabook also features USB 3.0, Ethernet and HDMI ports. HP quotes a battery life of up to eight hours.

Other included technology in the Spectre XT is Beats Audio, HP CoolSense, HP TrueVision webcam and HP Imagepad. Bundled software consists of Adobe Photoshop Elements 10, Adobe Premiere Elements 10 and two years of Norton Internet Security.

There is also a Spectre XT Pro model which will be available in July. This comes with Windows 7 Professional and a TPM security chip for better data security.
