How the World’s Thinnest Laptop Measures Up to the MacBook Air


HP Spectre – Thinnest Laptop – Impressive Machine

The HP’s Spectre laptop the thinnest laptop in the world is said to be only 0.3cm thinner than the MacBook Air and is considered to be one impressive machine. The HP Spectre is 1.4cm thick weighing around 1.1 kg while the 13” MacBook Air is said to be 1.7cm thick and weighs 1.8 kg. Overlooking the minor variances with regards to dimensions and weight, HP Spectre has taken the technology and the design to an incomparable level.

The MacBook tends to have simple design with all the laptops of the tech company, in silver, pink, grey or gold casing with the Apple logo towards the centre of the lid. But the HP Spectre has utilised artisan materials together with outstanding skill in the creations of an expensive looking device.

Carbon fibre and aluminium skill has been used in the device with a two-tone finish on the gold-coloured spine which is the first thing appealing to the eye. The HP logo in gold towards the centre of the lid is also attractive against the black background. The piston hinges cleverly crafted that have been used to life and lower the display, have been hidden within the laptop when the lid is closed.

Vulnerable to Fingerprints

The golden spine is said to be vulnerable to fingerprints and those with OCD could find their finish to be troublesome in keeping it spotless. While the Apple’s MacBook is driven by a 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, the HP Spectre is said to have a 2,5GHz 6th Gen Intel Core i5 as well as i7 processors which means that the Spectre is somewhat faster with regards to the daily task and is also equipped better to handle additional complex things like editing images or video.

The manufacturer has utilised breakthrough hyperbaric cooling technology to ensure that the HP Spectre is capable of handling the performance provided by the i7 processor without overheating, which tends to actively draw in cool air, instead of just venting out heat.

Both the laptops are said to come with full size, backlit keyboards together with all-glass trackpad that seem to have little to no variance in its functions. Besides this both the laptops tend to have 8GB of memory and also have standard 256GB of storage that can be organized to 512GB flash storage.

Operating System Differs

The MacBook Air tends to have a slightly improved battery life of up to 12 hours while the HP Spectre seems to have only nine hours. With regards to audio, the MacBook Air has the standard stereo speakers that have been utilised by Apple.

The HP Spectre on the contrary tends to have stereo speaker custom-tuned in partnership with specialists at Bang & Olufsen. The speakers is stated to have an audio boost giving outstanding clarity as well as more dynamic sound and on using both the devices, the HP is said to be much more remarkable.

Apparently the operating system tends to differ with MacBook utilising OS X and the HP Spectre utilising Windows 10 and the connectivity provided by the devices also tend to differ. The MacBook Air has two USB 3 ports, a thunderbolt 2 port and a MagSafe 2 power port together with a headphone jack.

 The HP Spectre, on the flip side has opted for three USB Type-C ports, which is a next generation industry standard providing ultra-fast data transfer speed along with device charging and video output.

HP tablets SlateBook X2 and X2 Split

HP has just lifted the veil on two of its convertible machinery namely the SlateBook X2 and X2 Split. The first is the size of 10.1 inches and embeds a 4 NVIDIA Tegra chip, while the second is Windows 8 and includes a Core processor from Intel. Both should arrive during the summer by its American manufacturer. HP seems to have been attracted by the proposal for its NVIDIA SlateBook. Note that the manufacturer has announced an operating frequency of 1.8 GHz chip. Anyway, it seems SlateBook is pretty good at first glance with its concept of "dockable tablet." Its dimensions are quite exactly 284.48 x 212.09 x 20.32 mm with a total weight of 1.4 kg. This is still relatively high and heavy for a 10.1-inch tablet along with a docking station with a keyboard with separate keys. Anyway, the screen has an IPS Full HD (1920 x 1200 pixels). 2 GB of RAM and 64GB of storage are part and it will be possible to complete it via a microSDHC card reader. Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0 are included, as well as HDMI outputs, a combo jack of 3.5 mm and a USB 2.0 ports. Two picture / video sensors are present: 1080p and 720p rear facade. And Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) will be responsible for driving the beast to its output. For now, HP provides little detail about its potential in terms of additions or overlay applications. The price for this SlateBook X2 will start at $ 479.99 and will be available most probably in August, at least in the United States. The question is whether this price includes only the tablet or together with the docking station. SplitBook, the Transformer Book "made in HP" Windows 8.Let us remind that the SplitBook the ASUS Transformer Book, but in a much more accessible version. Indeed, one can say that HP is really worked hard for this Ultrabook detachable model, except that it is completely covered with "soft touch" material. The screen is a particularly "good" such as one finds an IPS touch screen display ... only 1366 x 768 pixels.

 HP Split X2:

The configuration is based this time on a Core i3 or i5 third generation (Ivy Bridge) along with 2 GB of RAM. Storage side, we have a 128GB SSD while a 500 GB hard drive takes place in the docking station to increase capacity. In terms of connectivity, HDMI output, a USB 3.0 port, one USB 2.0, a microSDHC card reader on the tablet, another SDHC on the station include home and a combo jack 3, 5 mm to accommodate a headset or microphone. Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0 are included, but like the Envy X2, no NFC chip seems to be present. HP, again indicate that this gadget will be available in August in the U.S. for beginner for a starting price of $ 799.99. We'll see what the manufacturer offers when these two products will be announced on the old continent.
