    £1,499 would get you a RTX 2080Ti with no cow.

    It's all about the peeled cow.

    The only problem is that every time this thing gets warm, the smell is going to make me want a steak.

    Wow that is ugly! Doesn't appeal in the slightest, especially at that price.

    It's clearly pitched against the surface line - and I would see no reason to look at HP instead tbh unless I really liked dead cow skin.

    Re: HP launches leather bound Spectre Folio convertible PC

    I am just wondering if Spectre is really a good name to give a computer right now? Doesn't reeally strike me as appealing marketing for some reason...

    2 years max, and things would fall apart. First to go would be the AC adapter port (poor soldering). Then the touchscreen would get all wonky with no way to re-calibrate.

    Like the styling, shame it's made by HP.

    Re: HP launches leather bound Spectre Folio convertible PC

    Oh how I despise HP. What they did to early Pre adopters was disgusting but their stuff is just BAD. I never buy anything HP and my parents went and bought a top of the range inkjet Envy by HP. It has given me no end of trouble and I was so annoyed with them as it's always me they expect to come and set up / fix things but they never consult me on the purchase. If a printer comes with games on it, the software devs haven't been focussing on the right things. Proven repeatedly by my parent's printer.

    The Surface line was originally meant to be about what could be done, the idea was the OEM's picked it up and tweaked the basic form factor and went from there, this is the first decent attempt imho..
