How the ultra-thin HP Spectre compares to laptops through the ages – Mashable

The Spectre, HP’s latest luxe laptop, is a beauty to behold. It’s also the thinnest laptop we’ve ever seen, with a thickness of just 0.41 inches. 

That’s thinner than all of Apple’s laptops, including the new Macbook, which measures 0.52 inches. Heck, it’s even thinner than a AAA battery. 

Laptops have come a very long way from the 8.8-inch thick Osborne 1, the first commercially successful portable computer released in 1981.

The HP Spectre is what 35 years of technological progress and thinning looks like, and it’s marvelous.

To show you just how thin the Spectre is, we created the infographic below to show how the HP Spectre stacks up against history. This is thinnovation.
