HP unveils the world's thinnest laptop

HP's new Spectre 13.3-inch laptop, running Windows 10, is launched in market and it only weighs 2.45 pounds. At 0.4 of an inch thick.  It's also the world's thinnest laptop. The Spectre looks like a piece of jewelry that belongs in a high-end fashion store.

The "Ash Silver" laptop's hood and body are made of sturdy aluminum, and its base is made from lightweight carbon fiber. The copper-polished hinge, inspired by cabinet door hinges, helps make the display appear like it's floating above the keyboard.

Instead of a fanless Intel Core M processor, HP's going with a sixth-gen Core i5 or i7 processor (depending on configuration) with 8GB of RAM. HP says it's using Intel's hyperbaric cooling system, which uses two fans to suck in air and then redirect them over the processor and other vital components to keep the laptop cool.

The 13.3-inch IPS display is full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080), but there's no 4K display option. Surprisingly, the display isn't a touchscreen, and there's no option to get one. The IPS screen still looks sharp from a working distance and while a touchscreen and 4K would have been nice, it also would mean getting lower battery life.

On the back of the laptop are three USB Type-C ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack. All three of the USB-C ports can be used to charge the Spectre 13.3, output video and transfer data.

HP claims Spectre 13.3 to have 9 hours and 45 minutes of battery life. To achieve that, it combined four batteries together, maximizing every bit of space within the thin chassis.

Pre-orders for the new Spectre are available at HP and Best Buy beginning on April 25.
