HP’s newest laptop, the 13-inch Spectre ($1,170) aims to give the MacBook a run for its money. Billed as the slimmest laptop ever made, at 10.4 mm thick (that’s thinner than Apple’s latest notebook, or Dell’s XPS 13), this machine packs quite a powerful punch for such a slim body.
Boasting a shell built from carbon fiber & dark aluminum with copper color accents, the Spectre is clearly an eye-catching device, one that seems to work really well too. Inside its 2.45 lb (1,111 g) body, there’s an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, 8 GB of memory, up to 512 GB of storage, and active cooling technology to keep things running smoothly. Users will also enjoy a full HD IPS display – covered in Gorilla Glass – resting on piston-driven hinges, dual Bang and Olufsen speakers, a backlit keyboard, glass trackpad, three USB Type C ports, and a battery that is supposed to go for 9.5 hours. HP will start taking orders for the Spectre 13 on April 25, with shipping expected to begin next month. Details in the video
