With a thickness of 10.4mm, it’s thinner than both the 12-inch MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Air. Actually as thin as an AAA battery.
It comes with three USB Type-C ports, and sports a 13.3-inch full-HD WLED-backlit IPS display that’s with a 0.4mm Corning Gorilla Glass 4 layer.
Built using carbon fibre and aluminium for lightweight durability, the HP Spectre 13 weighs in at 1.11kg, which is heavier than the MacBook at 0.92kg, but lighter than the 13-inch MacBook Air at 1.35kg. Apart from svelte dimensions and a two-tone finish with a copper-coloured spine, the company has decided to go all out with its latest top-end laptop, and the Spectre 13 is the first to sport its new logo for the premium range.
The machine will be powered by Intel Corei5 and i7 processors, paired with 8 GB RAM of LPDDR3-1866MHz RAM as standard and 512 GB SSD storage. It has got hyperbaric cooling technology that helps the device draws cool air and directs it over the processor rather than just venting heat out, thus keeping the device cool with peak performance.
Now, the battery. HP claims, the 4-cell 38Whr Li-ion battery will last up to 9.45 hours on a single charge.
It also bears a full-sized island-style backlit keyboard, with dual HP speakers powered by Bang & Olufsen audio on either side.
The device will be available in India from July 25.
