MAKER OF EXPENSIVE PRINTER INK HP has announced its first ultrabook, the Envy 14 Spectre.

HP has become the latest PC vendor to join the Intel ultrabook party with its Envy 14 Spectre laptop. The company said it will come complete with a glass design and Beats Audio.

"Sleek, midnight black glass on the outside and stark contrast silver on the inside make Spectre extraordinary, defying conventional notebook design," said Louis Perrin, director of consumer products at HP. "We chose the name for our first Envy ultrabook to evoke mystery and to satisfy those who expect the unexpected."

The ultrabook class laptop will be 20mm thick and weigh 1.8kg, not quite as trim as some other vendors' models. HP has used glass for the lid, display and palm rests of the device.

Like all ultrabooks the Envy 14 Spectre will come with a choice of Intel Core processors featuring Rapid Start technology. It will also come with a 128GB SSD and a 14in HP Radiance display, and HP claims it will deliver nine hours of battery life.

Connectivity will include Ethernet, USB 3.0, HDMI, Mini Displayport and Wireless Audio. HP will pre-load Symantec's Norton antivirus and Adobe's Photoshop and Premiere Element.

HP said its Envy 14 Spectre ultrabook will be available at the end of March with prices starting at £1,199. µ
