HP’s Specter Foldable PC is exactly the kind of thing Apple should be making

Okay, foldable laptops. They are very new indeed and, like many new products still in their infancy, expensive. The HP Specter Foldable PC costs $5,000, which is a lot even by Apple’s MacBook Pro standards. But I bet it’s the Apple logo that should be on the back of this thing, not HP’s.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not bashing HP here. I am of course very happy that the Specter Foldable PC exists. But after months of rumors that Apple is working on something similar, HP’s offer does little more than confirm something that has already been becoming increasingly clear: if Apple doesn’t enter the foldable laptop market relatively soon, it will be left behind. Again.
