Mossberg: HP aims at the Mac with a super-slim laptop - Recode

Another toaster/fridge data point; my overall take-away from the review: if you want a super-thin laptop with Windows (and with a great trackpad, excellent battery life, and a fan that isn't always-on), buy a MacBook and run Windows on it

"Before getting into the details of this newest HP, however, I think it bears noting that both this new Spectre and another much-praised Windows laptop, the Dell XPS 13, eschew the 2-in-1, flip-around, multi-use gymnastic designs that characterized so many Windows laptops in the wake of the Windows 8 launch, which tried to combine tablets and laptops.

This new HP doesn’t try to be a tablet. In fact, it doesn’t even have a touchscreen (just like three of the four models of the Dell XPS 13). It’s a super-thin, light, stylish yet capable iteration of the good old clamshell laptop."
