Today in New York HP took the wraps off of their latest convertible laptop, and it’s a total stunner. To that effect, the new HP Spectre Folio is made in luxurious leather.
Notice how we didn’t say “wrapped” in leather, because the HP Spectre Folio is made IN leather. HP had to work with Intel to design a special, smaller than usual motherboard that could be built directly into a soft chassis. The result is a beautiful convertible laptop PC that is made in 100% genuine leather. Specifically, the leather is Cognac brown on the outside and ash on the inside. There will also be another leather color option available in burgundy.
Under the hood, the new Spectre Folio is no slouch either. It’s powered by Intel’s 8th gen core processors. The audio is supplied by Bang & Olufsen speakers. But perhaps most impressive of all is that battery life is claimed to be 18 hours. if that battery life claim proves to be true, that would make the HP Spectre Folio a killer PC to travel with.
The PC also comes with built-in gigabit class 4G LTE with support for AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. Sprint and Intel are offering 6 months of free unlimited data with purchase of the Spectre Folio.
The Spectre Folio will be available with a 13.3” HD display with a 400 nits brightness, and it will also be available with a 4K option later in the year. The display works with a stylus for sketching, note-taking, and drawing.
The total weight of the HP Spectre Folio is 3.3lbs and it’s incredibly thin. Pricing begins at $1299 for the Core i5 model. A Core i7 configuration will be available at Best Buy for $1399 and the 4G LTE model will cost $1499. Overall, pricing does not seem at all unreasonable for such a luxurious PC. Pre-orders start today.
