HP’s Spectre 13 notebook series has been very well received and the company is looking to build upon that momentum. HP has launched the updated Spectre 13 lineup today. It touts the latest 8th Generation Intel Core processors. These notebooks were always slim and sharp, but HP has also made some visual teaks that make it look even better than before.
At only 10.4 mm, the new models are just as thin as their predecessors but are narrower and shallower. The bezels on all sides of the 13 inch display have now been shrunk.
A new color option has been introduced. It’s called ceramic white and it’s complemented nicely with pale gold accents. Even the matching power supply is in white so it looks quite classy.
There’s a touchscreen option now which is why HP is claiming that it’s the “world’s thinnest” touchscreen laptop. There’s also a 4K option which was also not available with the previous models.
You’ll find Intel’s latest 8th Generation Core i processors under the hood. The models can be configured with up to Core i6 processors, 16GB of RAM, and up to 1TB of PCIe-based SSD storage. HP says that the battery life has been improved from 10 hours to 11.5 hours. It supports fast charging so it’s possible to juice up the device to 50 percent in just 30 minutes.
Prices for the base configuration start at $1,299. The new HP Spectre 13 models will be available starting October 29th.
