New HP Spectre One desktop looks a lot like the iMac

Sun, Sep 16, 2012


The new HP desktop, dubbed the Spectre One, looks an awful lot like Apple’s own iMac.

And another photo, this one an official PR shot really demonstrates the similarities.


The Next Web writes on the glaring similarities:

Note that even the keyboard and touchpad are nearly complete clones of Apple’s offerings. This is just a sad day for HP. There are nearly infinite combinations of components and design to choose from here and it decided to effectively clone Apple. Why? How has a company once praised for pushing the industry forward decided that this kind of thing is ok to do?

I’m reminded of something that Steve Jobs told his biographer Walter Isaacson just after the shuttering of the WebOS division at HP. “Hewlett and Packard built a great company, and they thought they had left it in good hands,” Jobs told Isaacson. “But now it’s being dismembered and destroyed.”
