In the world of laptops, there are many sizes, types and specifications that differentiate among the many laptops for each and different group of users today. Recently in the past 1-2 years, there is a trend moving towards portability, lightweight and powerful laptops. This gave to the birth of Ultrabook and it’s getting popular with many people out there, from the business owners who are always on the move and very mobile to the students and younger generations too.
I was recently to a HP Singapore event by GoodStuph whereby I was given a hands on experience with HP’s new Ultrabook systems and Sleekbook. The new laptops on display were the HP ENVY Sleekbook and HP SPECTRE XT, their lastest series of HP’s family of laptops in their lineup. There was a demonstration on the versatility and dynamic powers of the modern HP ENVY Sleekbook and HP SPECTRE XT, whereby technology, work, leisure and play all mixed together. DJ MacDoctor was there to demonstrate how he used the HP ENVY Sleekbook and HP SPECTRE XT to connect with his DJ setup and spin music for us to listen and play with. A nice integration of work and play together as and when you want it.
