Excess Demand for HP Envy Spectre XT Ultrabook Forces Shipping Delays

July 31, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It seems many major gadget makers are struggling to satisfy the unexpected demand for their newly launched devices. It has happened to Google with the brand new Nexus tablet.

In fact the company had to stop selling the tab at one point. We have even seen Samsung struggling to meet the orders for the Galaxy S III device. Now Hewlett Packard is finding it difficult to meet the growing demand for its latest Ultrabook.

The excessive demand for the Envy Spectre XT, the latest Ultrabook from Hewlett Packard which was launched in early May, is forcing HP to delay expected shipping dates of the machine.

The device packs a 13 inch LED Backlit display at a resolution of 1366 x 768. It runs on the power of Ivy Bridge Core i5-3317U processor. It has Intel HD graphics 4000, 4 GB DDR3 RAM and a 128 GB solid state drive (SSD) for storage needs. However, the ultra portability is the major feature. HP has packed all these exciting stuff in a 0.7 inch thicker body with a total weight of three pounds.

However, these features along with a starting price of $999 made Envy Spectre XT (Xtra Thin) sell like hot cakes in the market. HP, according to its official statement, is now contacting the customers who have placed an order for the device to update expected delivery dates.

The device also brings along Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS and a two year warranty. It also carries extra offers like a two year Norton Internet Security subscription and Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 & Adobe Premier Elements 10.
