I love this laptop! its sleek, very thin and one of the best looking laptops I've ever owned. I've owned HP laptops in the past, and was not impressed by their construction or styling. The Spectre excels on every level: performance, durability, versatility and overall appearance. The only downside is the battery life. I'm averaging between 6 to 7 hours. The screen is bright, vibrant and is even better than the Retina screen on my old MacBook.
According to the UPS tracking number, it was supposed to be delivered on Dec 6 and was not. Then it was supposed to be delivered on Dec 7 and it was not. Now, it's suppose to be delivered on Dec 8. I'll change the rating if/when I ever receive the laptop. Laptop arrived on Dec 10. Perhaps this was my mistake. I assumed since it included Windows 10 it also included Microsoft Office, but it doesn't, so now I have to spend *** to purchase Office. Had I known this, I would not have purchased the laptop. But otherwise, it appears to work fine. I just don't think it's a good deal at that price.
The Refurbishment™: The laptop came in very good shape and could easily pass as new, but I did notice there was a top case skin expertly applied. I pulled it off, as I prefer the rubberized feel and look of the original top, and the scuffs there were not worth covering for me. The battery seems to hold a charge as I'd expect it would new given the reviews of the product I looked into (this is not a battery life superstar ultrabook, but solid). AC charger is in perfect condition. I'd recommend going with a refurb based on this purchase. The sole cosmetic flaw was perfectly skinned and with that addition looked like a new product. Upon booting up, the setup includes an immediate Windows 10 Pro upgrade, which installed perfectly well and resolved one unknown device driver in device manager via Windows Update. No issues. As for the laptop purchase itself, under $*** is an excellent bargain. Haswell is still a strong CPU, and to get the i7, 8gb of RAM, a 256gb SSD, and especially a full 1920x1080 screen, not to mention touch screen at that for this price point is better than any new laptop deal I could find in a similar form factor. Jump on this deal if you can.
