Two Batteries And A Custom Kickstand Help Boost The Price
The HP Spectre Foldable PC comes with a $5000 price tag, making it the most expensive foldable laptop that has been released to market. HP justifies this cost with several features, such as the 93Wh battery capacity, which is spread out between the two halves of the screen. That is certainly more than any other model, and 12 hours of usage is impressive for those constantly travelling. As well there is an integral kick stand prop the PC at a 120° angle, which you won’t need to worry about losing.
The 17″ foldable OLED screen has a resolution of 1920×2560 and a reported 500 nit peak brightness as well as a IMAX Enhanced certification, for what it is worth. The audio is provided by four Bang & Olufsen speakers and there is a 5MP webcam that supposedly has AI enhancements.

HP is the latest company to announce a foldable-screen PC. The 17-inch Spectre Foldable PC has a keyboard that can be used wirelessly with the device propped up on its kickstand. Or you could magnetically attach the keyboard to the screen's bottom half or even slide the keyboard toward you for a 1.5-screen-like experience.
