This is HP’s awesome 3.9 pound and 20mm thick ultraportable with a scratch-proof design: the Envy Spectre 14. Base specs include a 14-inch, 1600 x 900 Gorilla Glass Radiance Display (huzzah!), Core i5-2467M CPU, 4GB of RAM, a 9-hour battery, backlit keyboard, carrying case and — hold it for a second — an NFC chip built into the palm rest for transferring URLs from your phone’s browser, which HP says will work first with Android phones. Not only does the $1,400 get you all that, but an Intel Wireless Display chip, HP’s CoolSense technology, Beats, HP Wireless Audio, full copies of Photoshop and Premiere Elements and a two-year subscription to Norton Internet Security. That’s epic. Upgrade options include 256GB SSD and an extra 4GB of RAM, but that’s not even really important considering how awesome this hardware is already.
The Spectre goes sale in the United State starting on February 8, continuing towards Canada, the UK, Switzerland, Germany, Australia, Japan, Singapore, Chile and Mexico in March. Full PR after the break.
