HP Unveils The World’s Thinnest Laptop

Laptop manufacturers including Apple, Lenovo and HP have become obsessed about creating the thinnest possible form factor. While these design decisions can help forge a beautiful finish, it’s not always a practical idea. For example, laptops prioritizing thin construction over cooling hardware have the potential to run extremely hot especially if the end-user attempts demanding tasks. Saying that, whenever a company creates an innovate project, it’s always worth giving them recognition. Today, HP unveiled the world’s slimmest laptop which features an ultra thin 10.4mm frame. This is astounding and I’m absolutely in awe of the HP Spectre’s aesthetic. It evokes a premium feel and it’s one of the best laptop designs I’ve seen for some time.

Kevin Frost, vice president and general manager, consumer personal systems, HP Inc described the new laptop and said:

“The HP Spectre is the thinnest notebook in the world, and unlike the majority of other super thin PCs on the market, this laptop doesn’t compromise power or features,” 

“A beautiful Full HD edge-to-edge display, Intel Core i processors coupled with Bang & Olufsen sound and a sexy and thin design, HP amazing engineers set a new standard with the all new Spectre.”

Here we can see a brief overview of the device’s key features:

  • A carbon fiber bottom creates a thin profile that is both durable and lightweight, keeping the total weight of the notebook at just 2.45 pounds
  • CNC machined aluminum chassis as thin as an AAA-battery at just 10.4 mm.
  • High gloss copper accents reflect a hand-polished, jewelry-like finish and an innovative hidden piston hinge creates the illusion of a hinge-less design to offer an unmatched premium look-and-feel.
  • An innovative hybrid battery split into two thinner pieces delivers the same wattage as a single battery for up to 9 and half hours of battery life while enabling the world’s thinnest laptop
  • Full HD IPS edge-to-edge display featuring Corning Gorilla delivers a superb viewing experience for editing photos, perfecting a presentation, or watching a movie.
  • 6th generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and a lightning fast PCIe SSD with storage up to 512 GB with up to 8 GB of memory for maximum performance. Integration of Intel hyperbaric cooling system keeps the machine running cool even with powerful processors in a small package.
  • Stereo speakers by Bang & Olufsen with HP Audio Boost technology, a combination of hardware and software to give customers the depth they want.
  • Three full function USB Type-C connectors, including two of which support Thunderbolt, to provide a fast, versatile I/O connection.

In terms of pricing, the 13.3″ diagonal HP Spectre is planned to be available on HP.com and BBY.com on April 25 for pre-order with a starting price at $1,169.99 and is planned to be available in Best Buy stores on May 22 with a starting price at $1,249.99.

Razer Announces Worlds Thinnest Gaming Laptop

“The Razer Blade is the worlds thinnest gaming laptop”

For Gamers By Gamers

If you’re a gamer you are most likely going to be interested in Razer USA! Razer has announced their newest addition to their family. Today they showed off their new Razer Blade Netbook, a beautiful, and elegant machine designed for gamers on the go. A little over a week ago Razer announced that they would be showing off their newest product, giving us a simple clue. “THINNER THAN A DIME – 30 MAY 2013”. I waited all day for their release, assuming it would be a new laptop, and I was right. Well half right. Today they announced two products, one of which I will tell you about in this article. This newest computer is the thinnest laptop in the world.

 If you’re big on gaming, then you are probably familiar with Razer gaming peripherals, perhaps you are even aware of their gaming tablet and laptops. Keeping up with today’s technology is one of my favorite things to do, and today has been a big day, I awaited Razer to announce their newest addition to the family. They have been advertising for the past couple of weeks that their newest device is going to be thinner than the dimension of a U.S. dime .071 inches.

It baffled me, but I came to the conclusion that the new announcement had to be for one of two different pieces of equipment. The Blade at the time was the thinnest laptop, thinner than any other laptop on the market at .088 inches. The next piece of equipment that is really thin, is Razer’s Edge the first gaming tablet, which is .80 much thicker than the Blade.  Anticipating the announcement I believe that Razer was going to bring us a new laptop, as the sizes seemed to match up. Though I wasn’t thinking that it would be as thin as it is.

The World’s Thinnest Gaming Laptop, with a thickness of only .061 inches, it is thinner than the diameter of a dime. The screen is not a large screen, only measuring in at 14-inches, though it is an HD+ screen designed to bring the user awesome 1600 x 900 resolution! Featuring an NVIDIA GTX 765M GPU, you will be able to play the most current games.

If you are a mobile gamer, than this laptop is most likely what your heart has always desired, portability paired with the latest and greatest technologies available!
