HP unveils the world's thinnest laptop

HP is unveiling its HP Spectre laptop today as the world's thinnest notebook computer with a 10.4 millimeter thickness.

The new Spectre runs on Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and is 10.4 mm thick.

As well as unveiling the new Spectre 13 Ultrabook (claimed as the world's thinnest such device), HP has taken the wraps off a trio of new Envy laptops, headlined by the Envy x360.

The new HP Spectre has a carbon fiber bottom which creates a thin profile that's lightweight and durable, allowing for the total weight of the notebook to be just 2.45 pounds. The exterior of the Spectre has high gloss copper accents to give the machine a hand-polished, jewelry-like finish. It also brings more ports than you might expect: "three USB Type-C connections, two of which support Thunderbolt", Engadget said.

The HP Spectre is priced from $1,169.99 and is due to be launched on HP's official site on 25 April in the US. You can charge the laptop from any of the three ports, plus you can connect multiple DisplayPort, HDMI, or VGA displays, via optional HP and third-party adapters.

Also Tuesday, HP refreshed its Envy line of notebooks with screen sizes of 15.6 and 17.3 inches. One of them named Spectre by Tord Boontje has floral decorative patterns with a peacock and butterfly in addition to the 18K gold and Swarovski embedded crystals. Meanwhile, the 15.6-inch Envy has a choice of Intel Core processors up to i7, with either UMA or Intel Iris graphics, and 16 GB of memory. It has a 13.3-inch 1080p display, and impressive specifications as standard. It will be available in Best Buy stores starting June 12. These new laptops offers sleek, metal designs featuring big power and performance, plus edge-to-edge flush glass displays for handsome viewing experiences.

The Envy x360 has two USB 3.0 Gen 1 ports, a HDMI and SD card reader as well as up to 16 GB of system memory and up to 2TB hard drive or 256 GB solid state drive.

The HP Spectre 13 starts at $1,170 (Core i5), but prices will vary depending on configuration.
