HP Spectre has a CNC aluminium and carbon fibre body and comes in Ceramic White with polished accents in Pale Gold as well as in Dark Ash Silver with polished Copper accents.
Palo Alto, California-based HP Inc launched its next generation Spectre 13 and Spectre x360 laptops in October. The new product line includes the latest, 8th gen Intel processors, along with longer battery life and improved display, within more angular and sleek laptops. The legal successor of the erstwhile Hewlett-Packard, HP Inc has continued with the company’s legacy of innovating without compromising on quality or features of its products. And the new line of Spectre and Spectre x360 do not disappoint.
For now, the Spectre 13 is available for $1,300 (₹84,600) and the Spectre x360 for $1,150 (₹74,800) in the United States. The laptops are expected to be available in the APAC region by late October.
Key Features: Spectre 13
With premium features, such as 4K display, high performance and thin bezels, this laptop seems ready to beat the recently launched “future ready” laptops from Lenovo. The Spectre 13 has a CNC aluminium and carbon fibre body and comes in Ceramic White with polished accents in Pale Gold as well as in Dark Ash Silver with polished Copper accents. It features micro-edge bezels, in keeping with the growing trend towards minimal bezels, along with Corning Gorilla Glass NBT display that offers resolution of up to 4K.
The edge-to-edge, full-size keyboard comes with a backlight feature for easy use in low light conditions, while the speakers, placed just above the keyboard, offer crisp and clear sound.
The laptop runs on Intel’s 8th generation Core i5 and i7 quad-core processors, and offer SSD storage of up to 1TB. The company stated that the battery life has also been improved, with the laptop expected to run for up to 11.5 hours on a single charge, while the battery can be charged from 0% to 50% in just 30 minutes.

The laptop also comes with an integrated privacy screen, similar to HP’s Elitebook x360.
