The processor can be paired with up to 8 GB of RAM and a 128 GB SSD. Storage can be upgraded to a 256 GB SSD. The machine is also fitted with Beats Audio technology and NFC tech. The ultrabook also has the new HP Control Zone, which is a textured area on both sides of the wide touch surface designed specifically for navigating on Windows 8.1.
HP claims that the ultrabook will run for up to nine hours on a single charge. The Spectre 13 ultrabook will launch on October 16 starting at $999.99. HP will also offer a brown leather sleeve with fake suede lining to protect the ultrabook starting in November for $89.99.
