There are a lot of laptops you can buy, but not very many are quite as luxurious as the 8 out 10 in our review, so we’re pretty stoked to be giving one away.. Unlike most portable computers, the Spectre Folio adds genuine leather into its aesthetic. Upon first look, you may mistake it for nice notebook wrapped in leather, but upon closer inspection, you’ll see that the leather is actually built-in as the Folio’s chassis.

With an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor, 8 GB of memory, and 256 GB of SSD storage, the HP Spectre Folio is more than just pretty, it’s also rather powerful. The 13-inch Full HD display, paired with tablet capabilities, make it an excellent laptop for everyything but larger scale design work.

While the internal components and convertible nature of the HP Spectre Folio make it a well-oiled machine, it’s the battery life and display that offer a stand-out performance. The display is significantly better than older HP Spectre models on the market right now, so if you’re looking for a notebook with a gorgeous Full HD display, the Folio is one of the best options available to you. What’s more, the HD display and processing power don’t take drain the battery life of the laptop.

Since the Full HD display doesn’t destroy battery as fast as many other comparable laptops, you can watch local videos on the Folio for up to 17 hours and 18 minutes.
