Who’s says laptops are out of style? Though tablets may be somewhat ubiquitous this day and age, that doesn’t mean contemporary laptops need to be phased out. At least that’s the reasoning behind HP’s release of their fresh, and dare we say downright beautiful, Spectre 13 laptop.
The thin and sleek release is a stunning 10.4mm-thick, weighs in a just under 2.5 pounds, features a carbon fiber clamshell with a Core i5 processor, 1080p screen, 8GB of RAM and close to ten hours of battery life. It’s easily the thinnest laptop on the planet; yes even thinner than the MacBook Air. The HP features Bang & Olufsen audio and, best of all, there is no touch screen and it doesn’t detach or turn into a tablet. It’s nice to see HP sticking with tradition. On top of all these specs, HP is also releasing two “special editions” designed by Tord Bootje, celebrated product designer and Jess Hannah, a jewelry designer. It comes with bags, mice, and leather carrying bags to match it’s black and gold aesthetic. The Spectre screams class and for a price of only $1,169, it’s surprisingly affordable for PC users everywhere. [Purchase]
