HP SpectreXT Ultrabook

HP SpectreXT Ultrabook available from NAR DesignRob has been prolonging the life of his HP laptop for many years with fresh operating system installs and upgrading to faster solid state drives for storage – the latest being a 180GB Intel 335 Series SSD.

But after almost six years of daily use, the time had come to upgrade. The only question was which way to go?

It had to be fast and durable – the last HP laptop was turned on and off, opened and shut up to ten times a day over six years so there are big shoes to fill!
