HP has launched the Spectre 13 in India, a laptop that’s claimed to be the thinnest in the world by the US-based firm. With a thickness of 10.4mm, it’s thinner than both the 12-inch MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Air. It has been priced starting at Rs. 1,19,990 in India, and will go on sale from Saturday.
The HP Spectre 13 weighs in at 1.11kg, which is heavier than the MacBook at 0.92kg, but lighter than the 13-inch MacBook Air at 1.35kg. Apart from svelte dimensions, the company has decided to go all out with its latest top-end laptop, and the Spectre 13 is the first to sport its new logo for the premium range. The laptop was first unveiled back in April.
Built using carbon fibre and aluminium for lightweight durability, the HP Spectre 13 bears a two-tone finish with a copper-coloured spine. It comes with three USB Type-C ports, and sports a 13.3-inch full-HD WLED-backlit IPS display that’s complete with a 0.4mm Corning Gorilla Glass 4 layer.
It also bears a full-sized island-style backlit keyboard, with dual HP speakers powered by Bang & Olufsen audio on either side.
HP hasn’t compromised on the specifications either as the 64-bit Windows 10 laptop will come with a choice of Intel’s 6th generation Core i5 or Core i7 processors with Intel HD Graphics, SSD storage up to 512GB, and 8GB of LPDDR3-1866MHz RAM as standard.
The company also claims that the 4-cell 38Whr Li-ion battery inside the device can keep the laptop running for 9.5 hours on a single charge.
Speaking about the HP Spectre 13, Rajiv Srivastava, Managing Director, HP India said, “HP as India’s technology leader aims to make life better, productive and more fun. We are at the forefront of delivering industry-leading innovation and HP’s Spectre 13 is a beautifully crafted Notebook and a reflection of what many millennials aspire to be — exceptional, cool, dazzling, standing out from the crowd, but making an impact.”
