HP Unveils Spectre, World’s Thinnest In High-Gloss Copper
Hewlett-Packard believes it has raised the bar in the design of a new flagship notebook, the Spectre, claiming it to be the world’s thinnest and HP’s lightest and most elegant to date.
“The HP Spectre is the thinnest notebook in the world, and unlike the majority of other super-thin PCs on the market, this laptop doesn’t compromise power or features,” said Jeff Woodhouse, HP South Pacific’s consumer category manager, personal systems, at yesterday’s launch in Sydney.
Woodhouse said HP has “reimagined” every element during the design of the HP Spectre resulting in a “premium notebook PC” that is at once stylish and rich in features, starting with a carbon fibre base and a thin profile that is lightweight, putting total weight at just 1.11kg.
HP is pitching the notebook at the high end of the market and as such alludes to sophistication in look and feel. “High gloss copper accents reflect a hand-polished, jewellery-like finish, and an innovative hidden piston hinge creates the illusion of a hinge-less design,” HP says.
Under the hood are 6th generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors with storage up to 512 GB, and up to 8 GB of memory, while Intel’s “hyperbaric” system is said to keep the machine running cool.
The 13.3-inch HP Spectre is shipping in Australia now, starting at $2299 from retailers including Harvey Norman and JB Hi Fi. – Kate Castellari
