Deal | HP's weird Spectre Folio 2-in-1 with Core i7-8500Y and 256 GB SSD now on sale for $750
HP made a big deal about its Spectre Folio convertible last October. The manufacturer unveiled the device during a live event in New York on the very same week as Microsoft's Surface event. Unsurprisingly, the Spectre Folio was designed to tackle both the Surface Pro and Surface Laptop series head-on with its unique leather-aluminum-infused chassis design.
Unfortunately for HP, the system never took off for a couple of reasons. Its starting price of $1400 USD was absurd and its Core Y CPU was significantly slower than the Kaby Lake-R Surface Pro offerings.
Now almost a year old, the Spectre Folio can finally be had for a decent price of $900 USD. Users can get an additional $150 off for a final price of $750 if they have a Best Buy account to sign-up for their free Student Deals promotion. The convertible on sale is one of the few laptops shipping with a Core i7-8500Y CPU.
