HP`s new laptop called “Spectre” is officially announced as the thinnest laptop in the world. It weighs around couple of pounds and its thickness is just 4/10 (four tenths) of an inch. It is much lighter and thinner than the competitor MacBook Air, but it weighs just a little bit more than Lenovo Yoga 900S.
HP designed this laptop with a shiny copper color, which will attract anyone that likes mobile devices and interesting gadgets that have luxurious outlook. Spectre is also a very powerful computer that comes with 8 GB of RAM memory, Intel Core i7 processor and a battery life of up to ten hours. However, Spectre is designed to be a strong competition to other powerful laptops on the market, so its price is relatively high set at $1,170 per piece. In the promotional videos of the product, HP describes this laptop as more of a handmade than manufactured in a factory.
HP made a good step forward with this laptop, as they reported that 2015 was not very successful year for them when their sales of laptops went down for 11% in comparison to the previous year. One of the reasons for that is that people do not upgrade much their computers anymore, and they use tablets and smartphones more than laptops and PCs. With Spectre, HP expects that trend to change. Spectre laptop is available for pre-ordering in all HP stores, starting from the last week of April 2016.
