HP SpectreXT TouchSmart Ultrabook
The reception of Intel's high-speed Thunderbolt technology has been mixed, but HP will use it to speed up data moving into and out of its SpectreXT TouchSmart Ultrabook. The SpectreXT is expected to be a performance screamer, using the latest Ivy Bridge processors and SSD storage. It has a 15.6-in. touch screen with a thin frame around the display that makes it appear to float in space. At 4.7 lb. and 0.8-in. thick and designed with a shiny silver metal case, the SpectreXT is expected to ship in December.
