The HP ENVY 14 Spectre made a glassy debut at CES 2012, taking home our Best Ultrabook of CES award and stealing the hearts of many attendees thanks to the sleek glass covered body.
The Spectre 14 won’t start shipping until later this month, but if you can’t wait for this 14 inch Ultrabook, you an preorder the ENVY 14 Spectre starting today from HP.
The Spectre 14 uses an edge to edge display to fit a 14 inch display int he frame of a 13 inch notebook, and covered the display and much of the frame with Gorilla Glass. There’s even a glass covered trackpad, which we hope will perform better than the average Windows trackpad.
The 14 inch display is also a treat, with a 1600×900 resolution that allows you to see mor eon your screen at once. It is an HP Radiance display, which normally means better colors than your average notebook display.
