While HP might not have a huge presence at CES’12 last month but they still managed to grab quite some attention at the event through the new HP Envy14 Spectre. Positioning itself as a slightly more premium offering in the growing ultrabook segment, it is rather hard to ignore the HP Envy14 Spectre’s 20-mm thin shell that is made from durable and scratch resistant glass. Furthermore, HP also managed to shove in a 14-inch display into the ultrabook’s 13.3-inch body.

Apart from that, the HP Envy14 Spectre is not too shabby in the hardware section as well. The upcoming ultrabook is available together with either 1.6GHz Intel Core i5-2467M or 1.8GHz Intel Core i7-2677M processors as well as a solid state drive with 128GB or 256GB worth of storage space. The ultrabook also comes with 4GB worth of DDR3 memory as a standard.

Not enough with capable hardware, HP also includes a number of nifty features into it such as the Beats Audio EQ engine with external jogger dial as well as the HP Radiance Backlit Keyboard that can automatically light up and dim down according to user’s proximity. In addition to that, the ultrabook is also equipped with a Near Field Communication (NFC) technology - dubbed as HP Touch To Share - that can be used for data sharing with other NFC-enabled devices.

The new HP Envy14 Spectre is scheduled to arrive in Malaysia sometime in April this year and will carry a price tag that starts at RM 4,999. Meanwhile, to fully appreciate (or hate, if you must) HP Envy14 Spectre design philosophy, there is no better way to do that other than checking it out with your own eyes and we were fortunate enough to have a brief encounter with it at CES’12.
