HP showcased Spectre, a new laptop it claims is the thinnest model you can buy. Spectre has a screen size of 13.3", it features a CNC machined aluminium chassis and has a thickness of just 10.4mm.
HP reimagined every element during the design of the HP Spectre to ensure the best user experience coupled with maximum performance. The result is a premium notebook PC that does not force users to compromise on style, function or performance with features such as:

  • A carbon fiber bottom creates a thin profile that is both durable and lightweight, keeping the total weight of the notebook at just 2.45 pounds.
  • High gloss copper accents reflect a hand-polished, jewelry-like finish and an innovative hidden piston hinge creates the illusion of a hinge-less design to offer an unmatched premium look-and-feel.
  • An innovative hybrid battery split into two thinner pieces delivers the same wattage as a single battery for up to 9 and half hours of battery life(4) while enabling the world's thinnest laptop.
  • Full HD IPS edge-to-edge display featuring Corning® Gorilla® delivers a superb viewing experience for editing photos, perfecting a presentation, or watching a movie. 6th generation Intel® Core™ i5 and i7 processors(2) and a lightning fast PCIe SSD with storage up to 512 GB with up to 8 GB of memory for maximum performance. Integration of Intel® hyperbaric cooling system keeps the machine running cool even with powerful processors in a small package.
  • Stereo speakers by Bang & Olufsen with HP Audio Boost technology, a combination of hardware and software to give customers the depth they want.
  • Three full function USB Type-C™ connectors, including two of which support Thunderbolt™, to provide a fast, versatile I/O connection.
  • Spectre will be available for pre-order on April 25 with pricing starting at $1,169.99 and will hit Best Buy stores on May 22 with a base price of $1,249.99. In Europe the ultra-thin laptop is expected to hit stores in July with pricing starting at 1,799EUR. Based on the language of the press releases, it appears the cheaper models will not be sold in the EU.
