Modern technology gives us many things.

HP Spectre revealed as the world’s thinnest laptop computer


HP has just released the world’s thinnest laptop in Australia. The HP Spectre has an aluminium chassis that’s just 10.4mm thick – the same thickness as a AAA battery.

The svelte laptop has a full high definition 13.3-inch edge-to-edge display covered on a 0.4mm sheet of Corning’s Gorilla Glass.

It also has a carbon fibre base that makes the product thin and lightweight but also durable.

It has a high gloss finish and copper hand-polished finish that gives a premium jewellery-like look and feel.


The screen has a hidden piston hinge that takes up hardly any space and actually gives it a hinge-less appearance.

But the fact that the HP Spectre is thin doesn’t mean it’s not powerful.


Under the very narrow hood is sixth generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors and fast PCle SSD (solid state drive) storage up to 512GB and 8GB RAM is standard.

On the audio side, the stereo speakers have been enhanced by Bang & Olufsen with HO Audio Boost technology as well.


Also on board are three USB-C ports including two that also support Thunderbolt 3 to provide a superfast connection.

The HP Spectre is available now from Harvey Norman and JB Hi-Fi with prices starting at $2,299.
