HP teases next Ultrabook launch
Spectre wafts out
Intel hopes 2012 will be dubbed 'the year of the Ultrabook', and its old pal HP has wasted no time in pitching its own überslim laptop offering.
The company is preparing to launch the Envy Spectre, its second model to join the Ultrabook line-up, after the Folio 13 was revealed last November.
While details on the forthcoming phantom-monikered machine are shrouded in mystery, the laptop was approved by the FCC last week and is rumoured to include a 14in display and Intel's upcoming 'Ivy Bridge' processors.
An HP employee has since been triggerhappy with their email and sent out the following promo video:
The clip fails to reveal anything other than the laptop's name, so we have little else to report. However, further info is expected at next week's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), so we'll keep you posted. ®
Ultrabooks, A Pointless Premium
Having got a lovely Dell Studio less than a year old from eBay for £300, an HP Touchpad for £200, what I really need in my life is a laptop that's thin and light but too awkward to use like a tablet, yet offering no real advantage over my existing laptop.
I hope it's at least twice the price of both my other gadgets combined too!
Who really wants a premium product with Intel HD 3000 graphics?
RE: Ultrabooks, A Pointless Premium
Agreed. Often, staying just one step behind the cutting edge allows you to enjoy still excellent products at a much reduced price. In my experience, the majority of "must-have-the-latest-and-greatest" premium laptop users (unless they are gamers) will not use even half the capabilities of their products.
me me me me me me me me me
...oh sorry, I got all worked up about it and spoilt my keyboard
It's missing something
The video should announce it simply as "yet another nasty, plastic, underspecified Air rip-off" and get that over with before people get themselves too worked up.
