The body of the novelty in 2-in-1 format is clad in artificial leather, and the frame is made of a strong magnesium alloy.

All manufacturers of laptops mainly use aluminum and plastic as a material of cases – from this point of view, there is little variety. But there are experimenters like Microsoft Alcantara Fabric Surface and HP, which on October 1 tried to re-invent the body of the mobile computer.

HP Specter Folio

The new HP Specter Folio is almost completely covered with artificial leather, but at the same time the laptop is a hybrid – its body adopts three main modes: a tablet, a presentation, and a laptop. The main “skeleton” of the body is made of magnesium alloy. In HP note that for the motherboard was allocated a minimum space to fill as much space as possible with a battery.

Main features of HP Specter Folio:

  • the eighth generation of Intel processors up to Core i7;
  • 8 GB of RAM;
  • 256 GB on the SSD-drive;
  • 13.3-inch display with a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels (later appears 4K-version).

It is known that the device uses Intel’s Low Power Display Technology. With its help, you can minimize the energy consumption of the display, which, in turn, will extend the battery life. At the Specter Folio, it is officially 18 hours.
