Pregled HP Spectre Folio: ročaj s HP-jevim novim usnjenim premazom

HP’s Spectre Folio is a leather-bound laptop, but will it really reinvent the PC?

The HP Spectre Folio is the Californian manufacturerXCHARXs newest premium laptop for 2018. First revealed, rather unexpectedly, at HP’s own XCHARXPC ReinventedXCHARX event in New York on 1 October, this is a special convertible 2-in-1 touchscreen laptop with a chassis thatXCHARXs made from a fusion of aluminium and leather.

Pregled HP Spectre Folio: zasnova, ključne funkcije in prvi vtisi

"Vintage izpolnjuje tehnologijo", to je moto, ki jo HP uporablja za opis svojega novega usnjenega kabrioleta, hkrati pa imenuje svoj novi prenosni računalnik "izven opisa". Čeprav bom pri tem praktičnem pregledu storil vse, kar se mi zdi.

Zasnova Spectre Folio je zagotovo nenavadna; namesto prenosnika z zunanjim usnjenim ohišjem, usnje dejansko kondenzira kovinsko ohišje in ga zato ni mogoče odstraniti. To je tisto, kar HP imenuje "poroka kovin in usnja"; notranji sestavni deli so bili vezani na skorjo kožo, katere namen je narediti laptop bolj fleksibilen po zasnovi. Na žalost, za vegetarijance in vegane ni na voljo nobene možnosti iz umetnega usnja.

As with most convertible laptops, the Spectre Folio can be folded into three different viewing modes. The bog-standard clamshell laptop mode doesn’t require a lot of explaining, although I was surprised by its lack of flexibility during my brief time with the device. Looking like a large leather wallet, the screen connects magnetically to the keyboard – just like MicrosoftXCHARXs Surface Book 2 – but can be detached and folded into different positions. During my demo, the screen was folded flat for use as a tablet and was also brought forward, resting in front of the keyboard but behind the touchpad, transforming the Spectre Folio into a media-viewing device.

The 13.3in touch-enabled IPS screen looks nice and vibrant on first impressions and responds well to touch input. The Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution display also seemed perfectly bright, even in the excessively-lit demonstration area. Coated in a layer of Gorilla Glass 4 for added protection from drops and scrapes, the screen also doesnXCHARXt pick up greasy fingerprints quite as easily as the rest of its hybrid alternatives. HPXCHARXs bundled Digital Pen stylus is just as functional, and you can use the top of the pen to erase portions of your digital drawing, just like a real rubber-topped pencil.

The Spectre Folio comes equipped with four Bang & Olufsen-branded speakers. Sadly, however, I wasn’t able to fully test the laptop’s audio capabilities on the noisy show floor, but I will be able to give my opinion on the sound quality as soon as I receive a unit for review.

Kaj pa moč? No, HP Spectre Folio bo na voljo v dveh konfiguracijah; enega z osmim generacijskim procesorjem Intel Core i5 in še en, nekoliko gotovim modelom, ki ga napaja čipset Intel Core i7. Oboje bodo vključevali 8GB RAM za večopravilnost, 256GB hitrega SSD-prostora za shranjevanje PCIe in integrirano grafiko Intel UHD 615. Čeprav ne morem v celoti komentirati uspešnosti prenosnega računalnika, dokler ga ne vodim skozi našo lastno merilno paličico, lahko rečem, da je prenosnik počutil hitro delovanje med kratkim časom, porabljenim z napravo.

I am, however, a little cautious about the potential for the Spectre Folio to overheat. The majority of its surface is coated in leather, and HP has decided not to equip the laptop with a thermal outtake fan. There are also no gaps or slits in the Folio’s leather casing for the machine’s heat to escape. Instead, HP includes a metal ‘thermal transfer’ bar on the rear edge of the laptop but, again, this is coated in leather.

It is, however, certainly portable enough to carry around with you all day, weighing in at only 1.5Kg. All day is also how much time you can expect to use the Spectre Folio on a single charge, with a reported battery life of between 18 or 19 hours of moderate use. Considering HPXCHARXs Specter 13 was far from a battery champ compared to other devices in the £1,500 range, itXCHARXll be interesting to see if the Spectre Folio can do any better.

Pregled HP Spectre Folio: zgodnejša razsodba

While it’s too early to say how this laptop will fare in terms of performance, the Spectre Folio’s one-of-a-kind premium vintage design will undoubtedly be coveted by pundits who value luxury in their laptops.

Zaradi večnamenskih funkcij Spectre Folio lahko vidim, da postane le vozovnica za strokovnjake, ki si želijo laptop za delo in za osebno rabo, hkrati pa se občudujejo ob pogledu na kolesarje na vožnjo vlaka na delo . Model 4K, ki je na voljo v decembru letos, bo prav tako pozoren na to.

With the Full HD model storming UK beaches in November, we donXCHARXt know how much the Spectre Folio will cost when it does arrive. Our fellow tech-loving friends on the other side of the Atlantic, however, can preorder the Spectre Folio right now with configurations starting at $1,299.
