HP launches the Envy 14 Spectre, a glass-covered Ultrabook

If you love how HP designs their computing products, then you’ll gonna love the latest HP Envy. The HP Envy 14 Spectre is a 14-inch Ultrabook unlike no other in terms of design.

HP Envy 14 Spectre 1

The Spectre features a Gorilla glass finish not only on its display panel but also on its lid and palm rest giving it an elegant and sexy look. Don’t let the fragile look fool you, this Ultrabook has a lightweight aluminum build under that tough scratch-resistant Gorilla glass. It’s not the thinnest 14-inch ultrabook around but it sure is a beauty.

HP Envy 14 Spectre 2

Despite the 14-inch display, this ultrabook has the body of a 13.3-inch thanks to its almost borderless design. The backlit keyboard can sense your approach and will lit up when your hands are near. Powering the Spectre is Intel’s 2nd Generation Core i7 processor along with 4GB DDR3 memory and a 256GB SSD for storage.

HP Envy 14 Spectre 3

It doesn’t skimp on ports either which you’ll find on the left side. You’ll get USB 3.0 ports, full HDMI port, card reader, and even a LAN port and a mini DisplayPort. On the right you’ll find the switch to turn on Beats Audio powering the sound of this laptop and also a rare jog dial to control the volume.

HP Envy 14 Spectre 4

HP claims its high-capacity 4-cell battery can give you 9-hours worth of computing on a single charge. The HP Envy 14 Spectre is now available at all HP partner stores and resellers nationwide with a retail price of Php116,990. It’s clearly not for everyone but if you have it, other people will surely be envious.

        for sure magsasampa ng kaso ang Apple. kasi parang kamukha ng macbook designs nila eh. pero bakit naman kaya sobrang mahal nito. Di naman masyadong kagandahan ng specs ng machine. lalo na yung Intel HD Graphics 3000 na di pang gaming

  2. Sandy Bridge? Naah… Better buy an ivy bridge powered lappy… They’re out now…. and cheaper than this is.

  3. Ang mahal naman… :(
