HP has debuted a new generation of its Spectre laptop, saying it's "as thin as an AAA-battery."

Today HP debuted a new generation of its Spectre laptop — calling it “the world’s thinnest laptop.”

The unveiling happened in Versailles, France, at the New York Times International Luxury Conference. The Spectre was not yet available on HP’s website as of this morning, although you can check out its specs and sign up to be notified when it becomes available.

Those specs include a thickness of 10.4 millimeters, making it “as thin as an AAA-battery,” as HP’s Spectre website puts it.

HP’s claim to the title of world’s thinnest laptop is based on an “internal analysis … of vendors,” according to a news release issued today by the publicly traded company.

The Spectre is a 13.3-inch model that weighs as little as 2.45 pounds, depending on the configuration.

By comparison, Apple’s lightest 13.3-inch laptop, a MacBook Air, weighs as little as 2.96 pounds. It is also 17.272 millimeters thick.

Of course, the Spectre costs more — it starts at $1,169.99, compared with a starting price of $999 for the lightest 13.3-inch MacBook Air.

HP’s Spectre website describes the laptop as “more artisan than manufactured.” It continues:

“The details make all the difference. Carbon fiber and aluminum craftsmanship give this device the look and feel of pure luxury. And the two-tone finish is a study in the beauty of contrast.”

Would you pay at least $1,170 for the world’s thinnest laptop? Let us know below or over on our Facebook page.
