HP today launched world’s slimmest laptop, the spectre 13, in India. The laptop measures just 10.4mm in thickness, i.e. just about the size of a AAAA battery. For the launch, HP collaborated with designers Meera & Muzaffar Ali, who even showcased an entire collection inspired by the looks of Spectre 13.
On the inside, HP Specter employs Spectre 13 is equipped with powerful Intel Core i5 and i7 processors with 8GB RAM. And with all that power comes the issue of effective heat dissipation.
Managing heat is always challenging with super slim design. To address the issue, HP relies on its hyperbaric cooling technology. Another challenge that follows slim design is to fit in a decent capacity battery. To counteract this, HP uses an innovative hybrid battery split into two thinner pieces that delivers the same wattage as a single battery for up to 9 hours 45 minutes (According to official claims).
The Specter 13 has a carbon fiber bottom and weighs just 1.11 Kgs, which makes it ultra portable. The Full HD IPS LCD display is shielded with Gorilla Glass 4, and the notebook also includes Bang & Olufsen Audio with Quad Speakers sound for uncompromised multimedia experience.
