HP attempts to refresh the two-in-one with the leather-and-metal Spectre Folio • Ars Technica
Valentina Palladino:
<p>The Spectre Folio may look like a convertible that's covered in leather, but it's not that simple. The leather is actually built into the PC—you can't remove it, and HP doesn't want you to. The leather soft chassis adheres to the magnesium and aluminum hard chassis in a construction that you won't be able to see with your own eyes—it's all under the surface.

While it's classified as a convertible, it can flex into positions that were previously limited to tablets with keyboard covers. It can act as a laptop but instantly slide down into tablet mode as well. Instead of the traditional tent mode that other convertibles can achieve, the screen portion of the Spectre Folio can sit in a slot in front of the keyboard, turning it into a device ideal for photo and video viewing.

The Spectre Folio will have either an FHD or 4K touchscreen, both of which support inking, and the device will come with a stylus as well. It runs on 8th Gen Intel Core i5 and i7 Y-series processors and can support up to 8GB of RAM and 2TB of storage. HP claims the device will last at least 18 hours on a single charge. While super thin, the Spectre Folio contains two Thunderbolt 3 ports and one USB Type-C port, all of which support charging.</p>


A picture (below) from The Verge shows how the keyboard is covered by the screen when you want "tablet time"; the screen can then lay flat outward, or flat inward. At least they're trying.

Catalin Cimpanu, writing for BleepingComputer: Academics from multiple universities have announced fixes for two severe security flaws known as Spectre and Rowhammer.
