Leo's Tip of the Week

Product of the week

HP Spectre

The new HP Spectre is a very thin laptop made of durable alumnium and carbon fiber. It has a 13 inch display with Corning Gorilla Glass, weighs 2.45 pounds, and is just 10.4mm thick. It utilizes a piston hinge design that takes cues from high-end furniture, and the hinge folds flush. It also has a backlit keyboard and glass trackpad.

Inside the HP Spectre is a 6th generation Intel Core i5 or i7 Processor with up to 8GB of memory. SSD storage can be configured up to 512GB as well. While the Spectre doesn't have a fanless design, HP did incorporate hyperbaric cooling technology from Intel to actively draw cool air in, rather than just vent out heat.

The HP Spectre has Bang & Olufsen Audio for the internal speakers. It also has three of the new USB Type-C connectors, but one drawback is that it still requires an HP branded charger for power. Two of the three ports can handle data transfer speeds of up to 40gbs.

HP Spectre starts at $1169.99.
