#TechThursday: The world's thinnest laptop
HP calls it the best laptop they've ever made

While you've been trying to wrap your head around why the latest iPhone SE looks just like your current iPhone 5s, the folks over at HP have been working on quite possibly their most stunning launch for this year — the HP Spectre 13. As far as superlatives go, this laptop currently reigns as the thinnest you'll find on the planet. At 10.4mm thick, even pounding the keyboard might make you a little nervous. But the 2.45-pound carbon fiber clamshell is surprisingly sturdy.

The cool, copper tones of the laptop draws from jewellery design codes while Bang & Olufsen audio means you might be packing your bluetooth speakers away for awhile. Beneath its sleek exterior, it houses a Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of storage. The 13-inch laptop will also hold up for ten hours before you need to plug it in for a quick charge. 

Could this finally be a Windows laptop we'd love to flaunt at the neighbourhood cafe? Heck yes. We reckon it'll fit right in with our Tom Dixon copper brew set, too.
