HP PC Highlights Use of Glass

January 11, 2012

HP recently revealed the HP ENVY 14 Spectre, a premium consumer Ultrabook PC that commands attention with its use of glass. The PC uses lightweight, scratch-resistant glass on the lid, display, palmrest and HP ImagePad-reportedly an industry first. A 14-in. screen rests inside a 13.3-in. body.

“Sleek, midnight black glass on the outside and stark contrast silver glass on the inside make Spectre extraordinary, defying conventional notebook design,” said Eric Keshin, senior vice president, Strategy and Marketing, Personal Systems Group, HP. “We chose the Spectre name to evoke mystery, and we packed it with the best in entertainment technology to satisfy those who expect the unexpected.”

The HP Spectre’s high-definition (HD)(1) HP Radiance Display offers some of the industry’s highest resolution and richest color for better brightness and wider viewing angles than traditional notebook displays. A backlit keyboard provides illumination using individual LEDs dedicated to each keycap. The keyboard works with an advanced proximity sensor to sense a user’s presence, lighting up when a user approaches and dimming down after he or she leaves.
