HP Spectre 13 Ultrabook vs Dell XPS 13:Who is the winner?

W.A.Khan,                                                                                                                                               HP Spectre 13 Ultrabook                                                                                                                         The HP Spectre 13 Ultrabook is a Windows 8 laptop featuring a 13-inch 1080p or QHD resolution touchscreen, Intel Core i5 or i7 Haswell processors, wide touchpad with gestures, and a 9 hour battery life.With a 1.6-GHz dual-core Intel Core i5-4200U processor, 4GB of RAM and 128GB solid-state drive, the Spectre 13t is a lightweight speed demon. We opened multiple tabs in both Chrome and Internet Explorer, streamed music from Spotify and watched Netflix without any slowdown.The HP Spectre 13 has a sharp, thin, ultrabook design, high-end upgrade options, a great keyboard, and an extra-wide touch pad.
But, A handful of other premium ultrabooks offer better value. The extra "control zone" spaces on the touch pad don't feel like a fully realized concept.
The bottom line: The HP Spectre 13 is an excellent all-around ultrabook, with a great keyboard, display, and battery life. The unique Control Zone touch pad is interesting, but I wish it were a little more useful and intuitive.                                                                                                                                                     Specifications

It has a usable, backlit keyboard and decent battery life. While it loses points for a low-end display, its $999 price point makes it a reasonable purchase as a more powerful go-anywhere computer to replace your aging netbook.The display is a full-HD panel (1920 x 1080) that features a 800:1 contrast ratio with an optional touch screen for navigating Windows 8.1's UI and apps.This is one area the XPS 13 falls short; it has just two USB ports, a headphone/microphone combo jack and DisplayPort video out. I’m chiefly disappointed in the lack of a media card reader. On the other hand, one nice feature is the inclusion of a battery status indicator which lets you check the amount of battery power you have left even if the laptop is powered off. All picture descriptions are shown from left to right.The Dell XPS 13 has a sharp new 1080p display, updated Intel processors, and the same sleek design as before.
But, Few ports; a high price; no touch-screen option.
The bottom line: Attractive and compact, the new Dell XPS 13 ultrabook isn't that much different from last year's model, aside from new processors and a higher-res non-touch screen.                                             Specifications
