    Hp Envy Spectre 14 ultrabook any good art?

    Hi guys wondering if the HP envy spectre 14 is any good for digital art mainly comics coloring. It's 8gb ssd, good resolution. Got a deal for $1200 normally $1300+. I want portability but good enough for at home too. It will run PhotoShop and be mainly art, no gaming, some music and net browsing. I will use external hard drive for reference photos, store some music and videos and buy a possibly a monitor for at home.any recomendations on other laptops/pcs in similar price range etc appreciated.

    8gb ram ? Every review I read mention only 4... It has an Intel HD3000 that is not as good as the current 4000 generation... Do you intent to use it with a tablet ? No review mention either a stylus or something, that's why I ask that.

    I suppose it's okay to do art with it, but I would take care about the RAM. If it's only 4 go, you will be limited, if you want to do something serious 8gb will be better and keep you safe for some time...

    Another question, why do you want to go for an ultrabook if you plan to use it at home ? For the same price you can have a more powerfull laptop, or at least something cheaper for same performance ?
