same issues here! fan constant and battery life horrible! I have not seen anything like this in the reviews...which I doggedly read before buying this laptop! I am now regretting chosing this over the Dell. what is wrong with HP!? These are supposed to be premium laptops! Not like this is the first version for them to fix this issue!

How I wish I had seen this thread before I commited to a £1500 purchase! I've had my Spectre for 7 days now and all of sudden I noted the fan was extremely loud and nearly gave me 3rd degree burns on my thighs!
I have also updated the BIOS, Chipsets etc etc... but for anybody reading this I wouldn't waste your time. I'd recommend returning your laptop if you have the option and choosing a different brand.
I gave HP chance as the Spectre looks sleek and stylish and has a great spec.
Unfortunately I will be returning my spectre to the retailer and probably move over to a Dell XPS.
HP should probably stop manufacturing these laptops until they've identfied the root cause to the fan issue and ultimately stop mugging off their customers.
