HP is synonymous with laptops! However, most of the time, HP prefers to stick to the traditional instead of inventing and innovating like many of its rivals, namely ASUS or Lenovo, both of which have products already launched in the world of foldable devices.
Well, HP has its first laptop equipped with a foldable screen! It’s a 3 in 1.
We have another foldable laptop on the market! Will it be the future?
So, after seeing its rivals ASUS and Lenovo making magazine covers with their own offerings based on large foldable OLED screens, it’s time for HP! Make way for the Specter Foldable, a 3-in-1 laptop, which tries to combine all the best parts of having a laptop, a tablet and a desktop PC, all in a single product.
A 3-in-1 foldable laptop?
Well, basically, all laptops are foldable, that’s not true. But here, the focus is really on being able to transform this single product into several different forms. In other words, it could be a traditional laptop. It can be stretched to a tablet with a 17-inch screen. Or if you want, you can even take on the functions of a Desktop PC. It does everything, and it does everything well.
Especially since the peripherals released to accompany the entire experience only further unify the ecosystem. For example, the wireless keyboard and smart pen charge directly from the laptop, without the need for extraneous USB-C cables.
But what’s really incredible is the image quality of the OLED panel. After all, we are talking about a 17” screen with IMAX Enhanced certification. A treat to watch films or series!
Meanwhile, in terms of technical specifications, HP equips this laptop with an Intel Core i7 Evo processor (Core 12000), 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. The battery lasts 11 hours in continuous mode at the most demanding settings.
How much does it cost?
Well, this is the scary part. This laptop starts at $5,000 in the United States, with availability scheduled for October. A value that should only increase a little more in Europe.
It’s undeniable that things are getting interesting in the world of laptops. But… We are still a long way from being something designed for the masses.
