During the CES 2012 trade-show, Hewlett-Packard introduced its new thin-and-light notebook that belongs to ultra-premium segment. The HP Envy 14 Spectre laptop is made of aluminum and glass and features a number of HP’s technologies that are exclusively available only on it.

HP Envy 14 Spectre is powered by the latest Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, DDR3 memory, up to 256GB SSD or two mSATA solid-state drives. The HP Spectre also comes loaded with HP exclusives, such as HP CoolSense technology, which automatically adjusts performance and internal fan settings for a noticeably cooler PC. In addition, the HP ImagePad provides precise multifinger touch navigation and the HP TrueVision HD webcam provides brighter.

The HP Envy Spectre uses lightweight, scratch-resistant glass on the lid, display, palmrest and HP ImagePad – an industry first. Although the system uses 13.3” chasses, it packs 14” HP Radiance display with higher resolution than on typical 13.3” screens. An HP Radiance backlit keyboard provides illumination using individual LEDs dedicated to each keycap. The keyboard works with an advanced proximity sensor to intelligently sense a user’s presence, lighting up when a user approaches and dimming down after he or she leaves.

“Sleek, midnight black glass on the outside and stark contrast silver glass on the inside make Spectre extraordinary, defying conventional notebook design,” said Eric Keshin, senior vice president, Strategy and Marketing, Personal Systems Group, HP. “We chose the Spectre name to evoke mystery, and we packed it with the best in entertainment technology to satisfy those who expect the unexpected.”

HP Envy 14 Spectre is 20mm thick and weighs “less than four pounds” (1.8 kilograms) while providing up to 9 hours of battery life.

The HP Envy 14 Spectre notebook PC is expected to be available in the United States on Feb. 8 with a starting price of $1,399.99. The HP Spectre also is planned to be available in early March in additional countries, including Australia, Canada, Germany, Japan, Singapore, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.
