The just announced HP Spectre laptop with Windows 10 will also have two different limited edition versions, and they will likely be sold for a ton of money when they are put up for auction later this year to raise money for charity.
Dutch-born, London-based designer Tord Boontje created the HP Spectre by Tord Boontje that exhibits delicate, intricate and dreamlike patterns across the laptop. The ornate graphic pattern integrates cherry blossoms, graceful florals, a peacock and an exquisite butterfly. The 18K gold plated accents provide rich contrast with the patterns that gently intertwine with embedded Swarovski crystals set in a floral pattern against a deep Midnight Blue.
Jess Hannah, a Los Angeles-based jewelry designer of eponymous line J. Hannah, created the HP Spectre by J. Hannah with opulent 18K gold. The notebook top and rear is completely plated in 18K gold with a highly polished finish. HP's logo is encrusted with diamonds, each carefully placed by a diamond setter. Even the keyboard deck is plated in 18K gold to match the top cover and the power button is covered with diamonds for sparkling brilliance. The all over gold accented with a hint of sparkling diamonds displays Hannah's minimalistic design philosophy.
If your bank account can handle it, a limited number of both versions of the HP Spectre will be auctioned off during the Cannes Film Festival in May, with proceeds going to the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
