The HP Spectre 2 has a slim but sturdy design and a stiffer keyboard than Microsoft's similar Surface Pro, plus the keyboard cover is included in the base price
A mobile broadband antenna allows for easy onthego data

Decent keyboard
The kickstand is hard to operate, the processors are slower than many other premium hybrids, and battery life is merely OK
Slow Core 5 processor
Heavy, lopsided design
Trackpad could be improved
