First Impression: HP Spectre


We were at the press launch for the HP Spectre last night, and we were able to get a little meet-and-greet with HP’s newest notebook. If I had to condense the essence of the Spectre into a single word, I wouldn’t even really have to think about it. This thing is sexy. The Gorilla Glass lid and wrist rest plus super-sleek curves beg for you to run your hands all over the notebook. Short of a really nasty drop, I doubt you could do anything to mess this beauty up. The keys were nice and clicky, but just enough to offer good feedback. Just like every beautiful thing, the best parts were in the details. You’ve got volume control through a dial on the right edge of the device, Beats audio, and a little touch I found particularly appealing is that the HP logo is offset on the lid, so when you walk around with the Spectre, people know excatly what you’ve got, even when with the screen closed. Sit tight for a full review once we get our hands on one.
