Are you a tech enthusiast? Even if you are not, then the phrase ‘world’s thinnest laptop’ should arouse curiosity.

We have been hearing about this unique laptop for some time but the time is near when one can see and even be able to purchase it if the laptop fits the bill. Of course, we are talking about the HP Spectre.

The base model also comes with 256GB of SSD drive, 8 GB of RAM and is priced at $1,169 (Rs 79,000) around $130 less than a similarly configured (but Core m3-based) MacBook. (HP)

The laptop, whose design suggests that it wants to beat the new Mac, comes in many variants in the US with the base model based on Intel Core i5. The base model also comes with 256GB of SSD drive, 8 GB of RAM and is priced at $1,169 (Rs 79,000) around $130 less than a similarly configured (but Core m3-based) MacBook.

The other variant sports a Core i7 processor and costs just $1,249 (Rs 84,000). And a higher-end version with 512 GB of SSD storage is $1,499 (Rs 1 lakh approximately). You can expect this prices to be hiked a little if the configurations stays the same or else you might see different variants for India.
