HP's Envy 14 Spectre is a beautiful device with glass lid, display, and palm-rests. The company claims it fits a full 14-inch high-definition HP Radiance Display inside a 13.3-inch body. We're not sure about that claim, but the display is crisp and beautiful at 1600 x 900 resolution. HP had discontinued use of the Radiance due to supply problems, which now appear to be resolved. The sleek laptop lists at $1399, claims a 9-hour battery life, and weighs 3.8 pounds. The glass case is unique in the ultrabook field, but probably adds slightly to the unit's thickness and weight.
