HP Envy Spectre XT
If you're looking for a thin, highly portable computer, you've got some gorgeous options this holiday season. Here are our favorites right now.
Slim, light, and sleekly designed, HP's $999 13-inch laptop takes a more practical approach than the all-glass Envy Spectre 14 from earlier this year. It doesn't have any surprising features, but it may be the best and most compact ultrabook we've seen recently.

The good: Slim and lightweight, the HP Envy Spectre XT is portable, well-built, and easy to use, with a great keyboard.
The bad: The design doesn't stand out as much as the original Spectre's did, and its battery life won't get you through an entire day. From a premium product, we'd expect a higher screen resolution.
The bottom line: A high-end laptop at a mainstream price, the HP Envy Spectre XT gets much of the look and feel right, with only a few missteps.
