HP today announced the new HP Spectre which it claims to be the “world’s thinnest” laptop. It has a CNC machined aluminum chassis that’s as thin as an AAA-battery at just 10.4 mm. The laptop features a full HD 13.3 inch edge-to-edge display with Bang & Olufsen sound and Intel Core i5 and Core i7 process options to deliver superior performance. The new laptop is unlikely anything in the company’s product lineup, it looks absolutely stunning.
The new HP Spectre has a carbon fiber bottom which creates a thin profile that’s lightweight and durable, allowing for the total weight of the notebook to be just 2.45 pounds. A jewelry-like finish is made possible with the use of high gloss copper accents coupled with a hidden piston hinge that gives the illusion of a hinge-less design.
Customers can choose between 6th generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors with PCIe SSD storage up to 512GB with up to 8GB of RAM. Stereo speakers by Bang & Olufsen with HP Audio Boost technology and three USB Type-C connectors are also onboard. HP promises up to 9 and a half hours of battery life for this laptop.
The 13.3 inch HP Spectre will be available on HP.com and Best Buy.com starting April 25th for pre-order with prices starting at $1,169.99. The laptop will be available in Best Buy stores across the nation from May 22nd starting at $1,249.99.
