HP’s Envy Spectre 14 dares to be different with its glass lid and palm-rest, and as long as you don’t touch, it’s a very attractive look. However, as well as being a fingerprint magnet, it adds slipperiness and weight, and HP’s decision to combine it with plastic detracts from the laptop’s premium feel. This Spectre does have a few other aces up its sleeve. Class-leading audio, a high-res 14in screen and removable battery are among the highlights. But overall, while the HP Envy 14 Spectre does appeal, it's not quite enough to justify its cost.
