Laptops just got set a whole new level of impossible beauty standards.

Back in 2015, Apple turned heads with a stunning 12.9mm MacBook, causing many to wonder how so much tech could be squeezed into something slimmer than a sandwich. Then Lenovo went 0.1mm better, with a 12.8mm convertible Yoga 900S.

HP's new Spectre laptop makes them both look like total chubsters. It's 10.4mm thick (or should that be thin?).

    What?

    Yep - 10.4mm thick, 1.1kg, a 13-inch screen. HP has somehow managed to package all the stuff you need to make a high-end laptop into less space than ever before.

    Oh look, a new logo

    HP is trying to move away from its "dull, office PC" image with a new design - and the Spectre crams a list of impressive specs into the new case:

    • A Core i5 or i7 processor 
    • Sound by Bang & Olufsen,
    • 1080p screen 13.3" screen
    • 9 hours of battery life,
    • Up to 512GB of SSD storage
    • Three USB-C ports (two are Thunderbolt compatible)
    • Up to 8GB of RAM

    There must be a catch?

    You're going to have to pay for all this svelte loveliness: $1,169.99 (£829.57).

    Best start saving.
