HP Spectre Is The World's Thinnest Laptop

HP launches the world’s thinnest and ultraportable laptop – the HP Spectre. In spite of a slim body, the laptop has a stunning design and a great key board.  With a 13 inch 1920 x 1080p screen and 10.4mm thickness, the Spectre is the world’s thinnest full power laptop. To top it, it fits the current generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors in its thin body.


  • The Spectre is 10.4mm thick and weighs 2.4 pounds.
  • It has a 13 inch 1920 X1080p vibrant Full HD IPS display with crisp picture and ultra wide viewing angles.
  • It has a bold smokey gray colour scheme with gold accents. The hinge is bright jewelled gold colour adding to the luxurious feel of the laptop.
  • The laptop is made of aluminium and carbon fiber giving the laptop sturdiness combined with light weight. It has a two tone finish on the copper coloured spine.
  • It also has a durable and scratch resistant edge to edge Corning Gorilla Glass display. 
  • The Spectre is powered by 6th generation Intel Core i5 and i7-6500U processor, and 8GB RAM.
  • It has a PCIe based flash storage up to 512GB which makes scrolling through photos, gaming and accessing documents quick and fast.
  • It has 3 multi use USB Type-C ports, which carry data, power and accessories. It can also act as Thunderbolt ports for high speed data transfer.
  • The Spectra is the first laptop to incorporate a hybrid battery. The battery is flattened into four prismatic battery cells fitted across the bottom footprint to maximise the battery capacity and give a longer battery output on a single charge.
  • The Spectre uses hyperbaric cooling system, where it uses small fans to draw cool air in through bottom vents and circulates hot air out through the rear end. This prevents the powerful processor from overheating and keeps the laptop cool.
  • It has a standard island style keyboard and flat keys which are backlit and a glass track pad.
  • It is equipped with the next generation 802.11 ac 2X2 WiFi antenna for better reception and faster speeds.
  • It has Dual HP speakers and customised audio from Bang & Olufsen. HP Audio Boost gives the maximum volume needed to experience entertainment to the fullest with outstanding clarity and more dynamic sound.
