Introducing the HP Spectre: World’s Thinnest Laptop

Hewlett-Packard (HP) unveiled their latest notebook this week, dubbed the HP Spectre, which is touted as the world's thinnest laptop.

It sports a machined aluminum chassis, which is as thin as a AAA-battery, at just 10.4 mm.

The laptop also features a carbon fiber bottom to help create a thin profile that is both durable and lightweight, weighing in at just 2.45 pounds.

We also see high gloss copper accents, as well as an innovative hidden piston hinge that creates the illusion of a hinge-less design. It sports a hybrid battery that is split into two thinner pieces, but deliver the same wattage as a single battery for up to 9 and half hours of battery life.

Further details include a full HD IPS edge-to-edge display featuring Corning Gorilla, 6th generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and a PCIe SSD with storage up to 512 GB with up to 8 GB of memory, and stereo speakers by Bang & Olufsen with HP Audio Boost technology.

The HP Spectre will be available for pre-order on April 25 and start at $1,170 USD. It will officially drop at Best Buy stores the following month, on May 22, with configurations starting at $1,250 USD.
