HP Spectre is the world’s thinnest Laptop
One of the oldest companies in Silicon Valley is HP. There are many Laptop manufacturing companies working to build a product that can meet user requirements like the style, less weight, and power at the same time. But few are capable of doing these great products like HP. HP Spectre is an example of a beast that has performance, power, style and less weight at the same time. HP claims that HP Spectre is the world’s thinnest Laptop beating MacBook Air at its own game. It is incredibly thin at just 10.4 mm which is way thinner than 11-inch MacBook Air (17 mm) and the 12-inch MacBook (13 mm).
HP Spectre 13 is a laptop with superior build quality and luxurious exterior. It is not a budget laptop due to its sleek design and powerful specs. It is made for those who care about style and performance at the same time. HP Spectre is 2.45 lbs in weight which is heavier than 11-inch MacBook Air (2.38 pounds) and MacBook (2.03 lbs).
HP Spectre is packed with Intel’s Core i processors instead of less powerful mobile Core M processors that are specifically designed for thinner laptops. Hinges of HP Spectre are specially designed to eliminate extra bulk that most of the laptops have due to hooks.
Spectre has 13.3-inch Full HD 1080p screen which is impressive on such a thin machine. MacBook Air doesn’t have a display like that. The Spectre uses USB-C standard for charging and other connections as it has three USB-C ports at the back of the laptop. USB-C is a standard that is not widely accepted by OEMs, So you have to use adapters to plug devices like monitors, hard drives, and other things. The base model is priced at $1,169, which is the same price as the 13-inch MacBook Air. The laptop only comes in gold/copper option. HP says that they used this color scheme for making it feel like jewelry.
