If you are getting tired of the low cost laptops currently on the market as they fail to meet your expectations with performance or fail to hold up over time to normal wear and tear then you may want to make a step up to something that is a little more capable. One of those options is the all new HP Spectre 13-v102na which has superior design along with the performance required to keep demanding users happy. Below we will touch on some of the benefits and downsides to this device so you can determine if it is the right fit for you.
Processor: Intel Core i7
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 512 GB SSD
Screen: 13.3 Inches
OS: Windows 10
Unlike a budget model the HP Spectre 13-v102na is crafted from durable aluminium and carbon fibre giving it the ability to handle the bumps that come along with everyday use, especially when on the go. Due to this superior design one of the advantages you get is the fact it will hold up for many more years then its lower cost competition meaning the extra price is well justified.
As great as the laptop might look what is under the hood is just as important and HP has done a great job in that regard as well with the Spectre lineup of laptops. It is powered by the top of the line Intel Core i7 processor and also has 8 GB of memory giving it the ability to handle more then just basic day to day use.
With a super slim design that has it at only 1 cm thick and just as light at 1.1 Kg it is built for those on the go. Carrying around this compact model is very easy and great for road warriors as well as just bringing back and forth to the office or class.
Anybody familiar with laptop technology is probably well aware of the advantages that an SSD hard drive provide but in many cases it fails to provide adequate storage capacity. By going with a large 512 GB SSD you still get all of the performance benefits that an SSD provides but don’t have to leave yourself restricted for storage space.
As mobile friendly as the HP Spectre 13-v102na is we were a bit shocked with the battery life. 8 hours on a single charge will cover the demands of most users but with other options available that can give you as much as 10 hours it doesn’t seem all that great for a laptop in this price range.
There is no doubt that the HP Spectre 13-v102na is a step above when comparing to lower priced devices and is well worth the extra cost. If you are somebody who demands great performance as well as great design it is a laptop model that should be high on your wishlist.
