HP has a plan to capture the market around the Apple MacBook , and their latest volley comes in the form of the Spectre 13.3.
It's a notebook with a 13.3 inch screen and a really slick look but the biggest standout feature is just how slim HP has managed to make it - at just 10.4mm. That's slimmer than any Mac product on the market and quite simply the most svelte notebook on the planet.
You shouldn't necessarily be buying a laptop based on how slim it is, but the Spectre has a gorgeous design all over, complete with a range of stylish colours and a body made of metal and carbon fibre. It's still just 1.1 kg in weight and comes with an elegant design that's nicely balanced. There's a full size keyboard with decent travel and high quality specs, with a configuratin including an i7 processor and up to 8 gigs of RAM.
HP says the device should last for 9 hours on a single charge, and that they've dealt with any potential heat issues - we'll have to wait for a full review to find out if that's true. Look for it to go on sale in early May, with pricing around $1100 for the slowest version.
