HP (the consumer offshoot of the company formerly known as Hewlett-Packard) dropped what it claims to be the thinnest laptop in the world on us last week and the results are mighty impressive.
The glossy 13.3″ Spectre is about as think as an AAA battery (10.4mm) and weighs only 1.1kg.
The Full HD IPS edge-to-edge display featuring Corning Gorilla glass delivers a superb viewing experience for editing photos, perfecting a presentation or watching a movie.
It runs on sixth generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and a PCIe SSD with storage up to 512Gb storage and up to 8Gb of RAM.
Integration of Intel hyperbaric cooling system keeps the machine running cool even with powerful processors in a small package.
Stereo speakers by Bang & Olufsen with HP Audio Boost technology, a combination of hardware and software to give customers the depth they want.
Connectivity comes in the form of three USB Type-CTM connectors, two of which support Thunderbolt.
It features a 3″, 1,040k dot touch screen; 5 AXIS HYBRID OIS and level shot functions; 10fps burst shoot mode; face/eye tracking autofocus; a panaorama shot function and the ability to shoot in RAW.
It also gives the user wireless control and shooting via the Panasonic Image App.
Developed by Irish company Watchovers, the Liberty Watch is a great way to keep track of loved ones – young and old – without bugging them.
The Watch comes with an integrated SIM card that broadcasts the users location. This is picked up on the ‘parents’ phone in an app which plots where their child has gone on a Google map, leaving red flags at intervals like a breadcrumb trail. The Watch has push notifications, so it will let you know when it needs recharging (via microUSB).
You can also set boundaries, making sure you get alerted when the wearer goes somewhere they shouldn’t, has an SOS button in case of emergency and, yes, it can even make and answer calls as well.
