HP Wows with Ceramic White Spectre 13

HP Wows with Ceramic White Spectre 13”

Today, HP announced that it's going to be launching new versions of its premium Spectre 13 laptop and 13-inch Spectre x360 convertible, both with eighth-generation quad-core processors.

The updated HP Spectre x360 comes with a refined design with more angular lines and it is made using CNC machined aluminum body.

Both of these refreshed HP notebooks hit the shelves on October 29, with the HP Spectre starting at $1,300 (around £980, AU$1,650), and the Spectre x360 13 weighing in at $1,150 (around £870, AU$1,460) for the most basic configuration.

What's immediately noticeable about the Spectre 13 - at least compared to last year's model - is the focus on trimming down bezels and giving the laptop a sleeker look in general. HP first launched its Spectre laptops in 2013, when the machines sported high-definition screens and weighed around three pounds.

From a hardware standpoint, the Spectre 13 doesn't seem to be much a slouch.

Like the Spectre 13, the x360 also supports Windows Hello through the same wide-angle front-facing camera, but with this model, you'll also have a fingerprint scanner for extra security.

The Spectre 13 will be available in Ceramic White with polished Pale Gold accents, or in Dark Ash Silver with polished Copper accents. You'll either get a 13.3-inch Full HD panel or an Ultra HD option, both of which are protected by Gorilla Glass NBT. And to further improve the audio experience, HP's installed better speakers with 66% louder maximum volume, as well as what it claims is a clearer sound across all frequency. Customers will have an option to choose the memory up to 16 GB LPDDR3 and 1TB PCIe SSD for storage. HP is claiming up to 11.5 hours of battery life, and fast charging will allow you to go from zero to 50 percent battery life in 30 minutes.

"HP continues to exceed my expectations by delivering impressive premium laptops with features that matter to consumers - performance, design and battery life", said Patrick Moorhead, president & principal analyst, Moor Insights & Strategy. The main upgrades come in the form of the system's internals, which now feature Intel's latest eighth-generation Core i5 and i7 processors.

One thing that users might enjoy is that the pen no longer requires a AAAA battery; instead, it's rechargeable via USB Type-C, and you can use the same 65W charger that comes in the box. The Spectre 13 weights 2.45 pounds, while the Spectre x360 weights 2.78 pounds.
