Hewlett Packard claims the leather laptop it designed has the world’s smallest motherboard, which was co-developed by Intel.
Named the Spectre Folio, the laptop is available for pre-order today, hitting the shops at the end of the month.
Hewlett Packard’s head of project management, Josephine Tan, says the company considered using vegan or synthetic leather, but decided to go with the genuine article, despite the greater cost to production.
“People still like leather,” Josephine Tan said. “There are customers who want innovation in the PC category, so we’re doing something new.”
