HP Spectre laptops. Great stuff mostly



  • Have one user that uses one of these daily. He is the main sales guy here. I really like this laptop.
    Another user brought her personal Spectre in today for setting up a vpn connection. Still really like it, but that trackpad is atrocious. If your hands are larger than a cute kitten's paw good luck typing anything on the kb without touching the trackpad and moving the focus to some random part of the screen. There is also a bit too much vertical travel when trying to press the buttons in the trackpad.

    Man, do I hate trackpads of any kind. So this is a sweet laptop all around for someone who owns a USB mouse?

    I use a mouse for everything. Trackpads are terrible. At least non-Mac ones mostly work. Mac trackpads, the worst ever.

    Especially the gigantic, more recent ones. I had a 2009 MacBook (not pro) that had the sweetest trackpad on it... and I hate trackpads, lol.

    YEah, the new enormous ones, they make the keyboard hardly reachable.
