HP Unveils the Spectre 13.3 – the Thinnest Laptop in the World

April 6th, 2016 | by Z. Gonzales

Thin laptops aren’t really new these day. Different brands such as Dell, Razer, Lenovo and of course Apple have each made their own thin computer, but when you try to push the limits of how thin a laptop can be built, it certainly makes everyone pay attention.

Spectre frontThis is what exactly happened when HP announced its new Spectre 13.3 notebook. With a profile of just 10.4mm, it’s undoubtedly the slimmest laptop currently in the market.

HP employed carefully selected materials and processes in order to achieve this including the use of CNC-milled aluminium and carbon fiber in the device’s construction. The device also has piston-actuated hinges that keep the overall profile of the laptop as thin as possible without compromising on stability.

Moreover, due to its very thin profile, HP has decided to use USB Type-C ports (two of which support Thunderbolt) instead of the traditional Type-A.

Apart from the specs mentioned above, there’s not much HP has shared during the announcement of the Spectre 13.3 but we’ll likely know more once we approach its release date.
