Does HP Spectre Folio 13 leather come in multiple colors?
One color for all
The leather is part of the HP Spectre Folio 13 experience and design, but HP only offers the Windows 10 notebook in a single color. You won't be able to choose how the leather or aluminum looks, but the company has stated the leather is designed with removal in mind, should you wish to replace it at a later date — perfect if HP or a third-party comes up with different colored leather.
Leather is an interesting material for laptops since you don't usually see anything other than metal or plastic. Where leather truly shines is by setting your notebook apart from other devices and not freezing up your palms when attempting to use the notebook after a cold boot. The only downside is keeping the leather in prestige condition requires a higher level of care.
Purchasing the HP Spectre Folio 13, it's possible to configure it with an Intel Core i7-8500Y (1.5GHz), 2TB M.2 SSD, and 8GB RAM. While it's no powerhouse like a more expensive gaming laptop with integrated graphics processing, faster processors and more RAM, it does offer up to 18 hours worth of battery.
The Spectre Folio 13 is specifically designed as a portable workstation for use when you're away from the desktop PC and the option for LTE makes it a great purchase should you travel to locations where connectivity is sketchy.
Premium notebook with leather.
HP did something unthinkable in the Windows notebook space by creating a laptop made of aluminum and leather. Not only does the HP Spectre Folio 13 sport a premium look and feel, but also packs some serious hardware under the hood.
