“Sleek, midnight black glass on the outside and stark contrast silver on the inside make Spectre extraordinary, defying conventional notebook design,” said Louis Perrin, director, consumer products, Personal Systems Group, HP EMEA as he described the latest HP Envy 14 Spectre Ultrabook. “We chose the name for our first ENVY Ultrabook to evoke mystery and to satisfy those who expect the unexpected.”
One of HP’s most advanced notebooks, the HP Envy 14 Spectre is 20 millimeters thin and weighs in at just 1.8kg. It features lightweight, scratch resistant glass on the lid, display, palmrest and HP ImagePad, a material largely recognised for its use on the screens of smartphones, portable media players and LCD displays.
The HP Spectre fits a full 14” screen inside a 13.3” body. It sounds impossible, but looks incredible, allowing to stretch content across a phenomenal high-definition HP Radiance display producing higher resolution, richer colour, better brightness and wider viewing angles than traditional notebook displays, the company said.
The HP Envy 14 features a matching audio-grade speaker mesh and Beats Audio, high-performance technology developed by HP and Beats by Dr. Dre.
In addition, it is powered by the latest Intel Core processors featuring Intel Rapid Start Technology, 128 GB of SSD storage and 9 hours of battery life.
Eliminating the need for external dongles, the HP Spectre features an array of input and output options, including Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0, HDMI and Mini Displayport. In addition, the HP ImagePad provides precise multifinger touch navigation and the HP TrueVision HD Webcam provides brighter, cleaner HD images.
It offers a performance-tuned software image, full versions of Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Element and two years of preinstalled Norton Internet Security, HP said.
“A world-class design also deserves world-class service, so the notebook comes with a premium phone line for technical support that is dedicated exclusively to HP Envy users,” the company added.
The HP ENVY 14 Spectre notebook PC is available at select retailers at a starting price of AED 5599.
