Which Ultrabook???
      #42728 - 06/03/12 06:19 PM

I'm going off to school next year and my parents told me that I could get a new computer before I leave. I narrowed down my search to two computers: the Dell XPS 13 and the brand-new HP Spectre XT. Which one should I get? Price is no factor, they both look like great computers but I'm not sure which one is truly better.

The HP Spretre XT (click here)

That looks to be a pretty close race. But the Dell XPS 13 is released and we have a review while the Spectre XT isn't yet out so we haven't a review yet. Without a hands-on, it's really hard to say how it stacks up against the Dell and other Ultrabooks.

Do you know when you guys will have a review out on the Spectre XT? I saw the one on the XPS and feel like if there was a comparison video then this would be an easy choice.

HP hasn't said when the Spectre XT is shipping, so I don't know how soon we'll be reviewing it. I hope it ships sometime this month!

Ok, but based on your past experience with each company's laptops and by looking at the features and tech specs, which one would you suggest?

OK, the Spectre XT's finally available for order, and now we know it uses 3rd Intel Ivy Bridge CPUs, which is a plus until Dell updates the XPS 13 with Ivy Bridge. But still, until I get my hands on the Spectre XP, I can't say if it's better or worse in other ways. The XT isn't shipping until the end of June, so our review will probably be out some time around then.
