HP Spectre Folio

Ideal for outdoor, everyday use, the HP Spectre Folio has a 300-nit FHD display, along with an option to boost it for a 1W, 400-nit option for better usability in direct sunlight. It also has a battery life of up to 21h 15mins.

Despite its fanless design, it manages thermals effectively, and its leather elements provide a cool and comfortable usage experience on the lap. As the world’s first leather convertible PC, the handcrafted full-grain leather on the HP Spectre Folio is exquisitely stitched, forming a natural joint for laptop, tablet and tent positions.
