There’s nothing like waking up to a glistening, new HP ultra-thin laptop making rounds on the Web. The company has unleashed the Spectre 13.3, which could rightfully hold the accolade of being the world’s thinnest laptop at just 10.4 mm thick. The unveiling took place at Versailles’ New York Times International Luxury Conference. The Spectre 13.3 is built on a CNC-machined aluminum chassis but that isn’t what’s got us talking. The limited edition 18-karat gold and diamond version is what has us all excited. To match up to the suave of the laptop, the device comes with a carbon fiber bottom, which drastically reduces its overall weight to just 1.1 kilograms.
The company states that the laptop will feature ‘high gloss copper accents reflect a hand-polished, jewelry-like finish and an innovative hidden piston hinge creates the illusion of a hinge-less design to offer an unmatched premium look-and-feel.’ The gilded version is created by Tord Boontje and Jess Hannah and sports ornate floral patterns inspired by peacocks and butterflies. The 18-karat gold traces and the Swarovski crystals are set against a Midnight Blue backdrop, creating a magical contrast. This exclusive version will be auctioned at the Cannes Film Festival in May with proceeds from the sale going to the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
The looks and thinness of the laptops aren’t the end of them. On the inside, they will feature Intel i5 and i7 CPU options, storage of up to 512 TB, up to 8 GB of RAM, 3 USB Type-C connectors and a battery that will last nearly 10 hours on a single charge.
The regular version of the probable contender for thinnest laptop in the world, the Spectre 13.3 will go up for pre-order on April 25th with prices starting from $1,170. It will be available at Best Buy stores from May at $1,250.
