 CNC machined aluminum chassis as thin as an AAA-battery, at 10.4 mm
 Intel Core i5 and i7 processors2 deliver superior performance
 Full HD 13.3” diagonal edge-to-edge display with Bang & Olufsen sound

HP has introduced what it says is the world’s thinnest laptop1, reimagining every element to ensure the best user experience coupled with maximum performance. The result is the HP Spectre, a premium notebook PC that does not force users to compromise on style, function or performance with features such as:

 A carbon fibre bottom that is both durable and lightweight, helping to keep the total weight of the notebook at 1.11kg 3.
 High gloss copper accents reflect a hand-polished, jewelry-like finish. A hidden piston hinge creates the illusion of a hinge-less design.
 A hybrid battery split into two thinner pieces delivers the same wattage as a single battery for up to nine and half hours of battery life4.
 A full HD IPS 5 edge-to-edge display featuring Corning Gorilla glass.
 Sixth generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors2 and a fast PCIe SSD with storage up to 512 GB6 with up to 8 GB of memory for maximum performance.
 The Intel hyperbaric cooling system keeps the machine running cool.
 Stereo speakers by Bang & Olufsen with HP Audio Boost technology.
 Three USB Type-C connectors, including two which support Thunderbolt.

 “The HP Spectre is the thinnest notebook in the world, and unlike the majority of other super thin PCs on the market, this laptop doesn’t compromise power or features,” said Lionel Chng, Managing Director, HP Inc. Singapore. “A beautiful Full HD edge-to-edge display, Intel Core i processors coupled with Bang & Olufsen sound and a sexy and thin design, HP amazing engineers set a new standard with the all new Spectre.”
