Fall in Love with the New HP Spectre

Thin is always in but sometimes it’s just not enough. One has to be good looking too. The HP Spectre is certainly the thinnest laptop ever but it’s also quite possibly the sexiest! Weighing only 2.45 lbs, measuring 10.4mm (the size of a AAA battery) and sporting an aluminum and carbon fiber chassis, the 2016 HP Spectre is hitting all the bases.

I never buy tech products just because of how they look but the HP Spectre could persuade me to break that rule and I’m not even in the market for a new laptop! Inspired by women’s jewelry and handbags, it takes top honors in the glam gear space. Of course, there’s more to a laptop than its style so here are the specs.

HP Spectre Specs

  • 13″ diagonal laptop weighing in at 2.45 lbs
  • 6th generation Intel Core i Processor
  • Up to 512GB of PCIe-based SSD storage
  • Up to 8GB of RAM
  • Three multi-use USB Type-C ports
  • Up to 9 hours of battery life
  • Full HD IPS display
  • Bang & Olufsen stereo speakers with HP Audio Boost

How The HP Spectre Stands Out

In addition to its weight, low-profile prowess and overall gorgeousness, the HP Spectre has a number of exciting features to explore.

Sound Quality

I consume a lot of TV from my laptop and I’m really interested in testing out those Bang & Olufsen speakers. My current laptop falls a little short on sound quality so I’d welcome an upgrade in that area.

Battery Life

Also super important for me is how long my laptop can go without needing electricity. I spend lots of days bouncing between appointments and grabbing time for blogger work when I can, and I need to know that I won’t have to lug a heavy power cord around with me. With nine hours of battery life, I imagine one could get a lot done in a day without the extra weight of a cord or the hassle of finding an outlet.

Multi-Use Ports

Sporting three multi-use USB Type-C ports that all support charging, high speed data transfer and external displays, the HP Spectre seems like a dream for data hungry bloggers like myself. Two of those ports offer Thunderbolt data transfer with speeds of up to 40gbs. More dreaminess for those of us who work with large photo and video files.



So what do we think? Is glam gear on your radar and would the HP Spectre make the cut? Sound off in the comments and let me know what you think. The HP Spectre starts at $1170 and will be available for purchase May 22 from Best Buy and Amazon.

    That is one gorgeous laptop! Mine is usually covered in crumbs and such… and I can’t blame that on the kids. Good grief that is pretty.

    If I could be persuaded to go back to a PC I might be like you and buy it just for how darn cute it is. Not even cute, that thing is sexy like you said!

      I know right! I feel like PC users are getting a lot of innovations that Mac users are missing out on. I’m working on a Chromebook right now that has completely shelved my MacBook Pro! It’s great but it ain’t sexy!

    That is a pretty sleek computer! I am in need of a new computer and I was leaning more toward a Mac but I should def keep my options open.

    Sexy is certainly the word for this HP Spectre. My gosh, it is a rather fashionable piece of electronic machinery. I suddenly feel like my computer just isn’t as good enough after looking at this one.
