(CNN NEWSOURCE) HP has unveiled the new titleholder for "world's thinnest laptop."

The Spectre is thinner and lighter than the 13-inch MacBook Air.

It's only four-tenths of an inch thick, and weighs a little less than two and a half pounds. It boasts an Intel Core i7 processor, 8 gigabytes of memory, and about 10 hours of battery life.

The price tag?  $1,170.

Pre-orders for the new Spectre are available at HPand Best Buy beginning April 25th.

The company is in need of a boost for its slumping PC division.

In the last three months of 2015, HP reported a 11% slump in laptop sales and a 14-percent slip in desktop sales.
