Reviews HP Spectre One
RCT SCORE 2.5 / 10

RealClear Summary

HP's Spectre One is an all-in-one PC designed to compete with Apple's iMac. It runs Windows 8 with an Intel Core i5 processor (2.9GHz) and 6GB of RAM.  Graphics come courtesy of a NVIDIA GeForce chip (1GB of memory) and a 1TB hard drive is on hand for your files. The screen boasts 1920 x 1080 resolution and measures in at 23 inches. It comes with a wireless mouse and trackpad and the monitor houses an HDMI input and a 3-in-1 memory card reader.
