As tech companies gun for the opportunity to produce computers that are a perfect mix of performance and a premium build, most attempts normally end up as a hit or miss. The generous use of metal components is normally a crowd-pleaser, so take what works and add splashes of other classy materials and you should be good to go. That’s exactly what a company did with the new HP Spectre Folio and the end product is elevated with a touch of elegant luxury.

We’re speculating that the manufacturer might have been paying close attention to Microsoft’s most recent offerings. You’ll probably agree that both the previous year’s as well as the latest Surface models offer a stylish Alcantara finish as an option. However, we know that some buyers would have wanted something more conventional. Therefore, HP presents a leather-wrapped 2-in-1 that oozes top-shelf quality.

The design and construction of the HP Spectre Folio are undeniably on a first-class level. It reportedly uses magnesium and full-grain leather that results in a cohesive premium appearance. You get a beautifully-crafted machine that carries a 13.3-inch FHD IPS display. Work without compromise via the 8th-generation Intel Core i7 processor with 8GB of RAM. Internal storage starts off at 256GB by default and can go up to 2TB. Furthermore, the built-in 6-cell lithium-ion battery promises an estimated 18-hour battery life.
