Answer: Leather.

by / October 2, 2018

The chassis of Hewlett-Packard’s Spectre Folio is made of leather rather than aluminum, reminiscent of a traditional paper notebook, Mashable reports. The leather is molded to a frame made of magnesium alloy, and its durability has been thoroughly tested.

Also of note among the laptop’s unique features is the ability to use data just like a mobile phone would when not connected to a Wi-Fi network. Using an Intel gigabit LTE chip, the computer can connect to an AT&T, T-Mobile or Sprint network anywhere in the U.S. with the purchase of a data plan. HP has pointed to the privacy benefits of this feature, since the security of public Wi-Fi is not the most reliable.
