    When we first heard HP made a leather wrapped laptop, we wanted to make fun of people with more money than brains. But after looking into it further, the HP Spectre Folio might be able to take on the MacBook Air or Surface Laptop 2.

    This seems like the perfect laptop for my use case, which programming at day and drawing at night (granted drawing is just a hobby, but still carrying drawing pad everywhere is just pain in the ass). Too bad it doesn't formally released in my country (Indonesia)

    Laptops are like a top that spins but they are not like that at all so I will say that this is really weird like the time I handed out free peanuts at a peanut butter free table. I think that this should be common practice but no one cares so I will say that snowflakes are special but there are so many that none of them are notable and if someone says you are a special snowflake they are saying that you are special but everyone is and therefore not notable.

    I think HP just solved it, the 2 in 1 Laptop dilemma, We just have to wait for the 3 by 2 ratio to replace this big not good Lookin chin...
    A bigger mouse pad, 4 USB C ports, and performance, a lot of it !

    I get the criticisms, but the pros outweigh the cons in spades for me. Battery life, feel , quality and yes even the pen holder. not perfect but overblown in this review. sorry, but true. Wish the trackpad was precision, but it works fine. And yes could have a 3:2 screen and bigger trackpad. Also the speakers are just ok. Put them on the screen like the Surface Pro. Still design and keyboard and performance are excellent and great for a V#1 device.

    Very nice. Can't even see the bad thing with the pen. Mount it the other way around so the clip goes over the leather strap... Gonna sit better than those magnetic mounts. Would never trust those carrying a machine around without a bag.

    The model overacting is pure cringe and eyeroll fuel. Really detracts from the video.
    As for the laptop, the low power low performance CPU means it's nothing more than nice smelling, well built, overpriced garbage.
    Which of course means someone at my job will insist we buy one for them , then complain about how slow it is.
