The World’s First Leather Convertible PC is More Than Just a Pretty Face

“Touch has a memory,” reads a quote by English Romantic poet, John Keats; the velvety softness of a black orchid in a restaurant downtown, the touch of mulberry silk on the skin, and the buttery soft leather of a car seat, bring about a seductive memory, followed by a quiet smile. In a world where we’ve become so accustomed to swiping on screens and tapping on keyboards, a soft touch brings about a sense of warmth and luxury, weathered imprints that only look better with time, giving a sense of individuality and comfort—like a favourite leatherbound book or journaled sketches.

Understanding this desire for tactile experiences, the HP Spectre Folio reinvents the digital experience and every aspect of the traditional PC. What was once associated with cold, hard surfaces now comes to life with a transformative form factor: a leather convertible PC—the world’s first, no less—embracing the art of ‘manucrafturing’ where meticulously designed hardware meets handcrafted materials.

Power on with HP Spectre Folio’s sleek leather-bound convertible PC

Using 100 percent chromed tan, full-grain leather in a deliciously rich Cognac Brown, the durable material provides a natural hinge and flexible chassis to enable a breakthrough new form factor. The accented stitching and precision edging that wraps from the cover and base—and around the complementing dark ash silver base keyboard—creates a sophisticated luxurious quality, often seen on nubuck vests and suede coats, never before seen on a PC … until now. The end result with the HP Spectre Folio is a highly desirable device that would not look out of place on every fashionable arm, from day to night, and one that performs as beautifully as it looks.

Building on the success of traditional laptops, 2-in-1 devices, and convertibles, the HP Spectre Folio is a master of unprecedented versatility: bending and folding between three distinct positions, even more impressively, with just the use of one hand.

Laptop? Check. Tablet? Check. Folded as a tent for an evening of Netflix-and-chill? Yes, please.

An innovative fanless thermal design leverages the unique qualities of leather to create an experience that feels both cool and comfortable in the lap.
