Do you remember the teaser clip released by HP which showed a mysterious device dubbed Spectre ? Well, now we can be more accurate and tell you that the mysterious device is called HP ENVY 14 Spectre and it’s possibly one of the best-looking ultrabooks you’ve ever seen.
“Sleek, midnight black glass on the outside and stark contrast silver glass on the inside make Spectre extraordinary, defying conventional notebook design,” said Eric Keshin, senior vice president, Strategy and Marketing, Personal Systems Group, HP. “We chose the Spectre name to evoke mystery, and we packed it with the best in entertainment technology to satisfy those who expect the unexpected.”
HP Spectre weighs less than 4 pounds and uses lightweight, scratch- resistant glass on the lid, display, palmrest and HP ImagePad and a full 14-inch screen HP Radiance Display which offers higher resolution, richer color, better brightness and wider viewing angles than traditional notebook displays.
HP Spectre is equipped with a matching audio-grade speaker mesh and Beats Audio, an exclusive, high-performance technology developed by HP and Beats by Dr. Dre, the HP Spectre boasts an aluminum analog volume dial that acts as a visual design to precisely adjust audio levels.
HP Spectre features built-in HP Wireless Audio that can turn your home into a concert hall, allowing you to stream uncompressed audio to up to four external devices or directly to any KleerNet-compatible device.
The HP Radiance Backlit keyboard provides really cool illumination using individual LEDs dedicated to each keycap. The keyboard works with an advanced proximity sensor to intelligently sense a user’s presence, lighting up when a user approaches and dimming down after he or she leaves.
Talking about performance, HP Spectre is powered by an Intel Core processors (i5 or i7), solid state storage (128GB or 256GB) and 4GB (or 8GB) of RAM. Moreover, the ultrabook features Intel Rapid Start Technology and support for two ultrafast mSATA solid state drives allow for quick boot and resume times. Also, it comes loaded with HP CoolSense technology, which automatically adjusts performance and internal fan settings for a noticeably cooler PC. In addition, the HP ImagePad provides precise multifinger touch navigation and the HP TrueVision HD Webcam provides brighter, cleaner HD images.
Additionally, the Spectre offers a performance-tuned software image, full versions of Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Elements, two years of preinstalled Norton Internet Security and a concierge phone line for technical support that is dedicated exclusively to HP ENVY users.
Envy Spectre is expected to be available in the United States on Feb. 8 with a starting price of $1,399.99.
