The relatonship between Apple and Hewlett Packard has always been an interesting one. In Steve Jobs biography there is a story about how a young Jobs wrote directly to founder Bill Hewlett asking for computer parts. Jobs worked there for a time.
Of course what happened subsequently is that Apple moved into pole position in terms of design and ease of use.
So you can’t help wonder what the late Steve Jobs would make of HP’s latest offering – the Spectre One….
Now it could just be me, but this looks strikingly like my iMac at work. Aluminium (lots of) – tick. Touchpad – tick. Wireless keyboard – tick. I can only imagine where they got their inspiration for this from?
There was a time when HP were at the forefront of technology – you can’t help but wonder why this looks exactly like an Apple imitation?
There is one difference though – it runs that horrid 80′s system you all call ‘Windows’. Because if you really wanted to copy the best of Apple you would work the operating system – Mountain Lion into the computer!
