Gold Metallic Back

HP has introduced polished surface and it is precisely brilliant. It’s thinner than a MacBook. It packs an Intel Core i5-6300U or i7-6500U. Both are capable of using low-power dual-core chips, and they're paired with 8GB of RAM. They are more powerful than the Core M chips in the MacBook, and the same pattern as the Surface Pro 4.

The screen has the tendency to absorb harsh light and its elegant style makes it unique and stylish. HP Spectre 13 keeps a gold metallic back which also safeguards from shock and break. It’s a Full HD IPS panel layered in Corning Gorilla Glass. Strangely for a Windows laptop displays with a glossy finish, it isn't a touchscreen.

At the back of the Spectre 13 3 USB ports are available. The HP delegate on hand said that all three could be used for charging. The standard USB adapter will be abounding in the box. No Ethernet support available as there is any port for this.

HP presents 9 hour battery timing if Windows 10’s battery life evaluation was disabled on the Spectre 13. Pricing of the laptop is unreasonable, even though with these specs it is not actually extreme. All models will include 512GB of PCI Express-based SSD storage and 8GB of RAM. A Core i5 model will set you back £1,149, which isn’t a huge amount and should be a good deal to have powerful machine in hand.
