This unique-looking system caught our eye thanks to sheets of Corning Gorilla Glass covering both sides of the lid, plus additional glass over the entire wrist rest and touch pad.
At CES, we said of the 14-inch system: "Compared to thin 13-inch ultrabooks and laptops like the MacBook Air, the Envy 14 Spectre is no lightweight. The 20mm-thick, 14-inch ultrabook fits within the size guidelines for the newer class of 14-inch ultrabooks we've seen at CES, but that also means it's heavier and thicker than other ultrabooks, including the HP Folio 13. Nevertheless, the Spectre is still lighter and thinner than mainstream laptops like the MacBook Pro."
The base model on HP's Web site right now starts at $1,399 and includes an Intel Core i5 2467M processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB solid-state drive (SSD). Core i7 and 256GB SSD upgrades are available, adding both of those raises the price to $1,899.
For both configurations, HP is currently showing a ship date of February 17.
