$899 Folio is HP’s First Ultrabook

It’s taken a while for HP to finally unveil an ultrabook design, and one has finally arrived in the form of the HP Folio. The HP Folio follows the ultrabook formula with an ultra thin and lightweight design. Specifically, it’s measuring less than 18 millimeters thin and weighs just 3.3lbs. Design wise, it can be best described as industrial-chic.

The Folio sports a backlit keyboard, USB 3.0 and RJ-45 ports, along with a 128GB SSD, Dolby Advanced Audio, a HP TrueVision HD webcam, and multitouch gesture support. The laptop can also be configured with a TPM Embedded Security Chip that helps keep data in email and data on the hard drive secure. With features like this last one one, there is no doubt that the HP Folio has also been designed with business users in mind. This lightweight efficiency machine also promises to last throughout the work day, with battery life of up to 9 hours. 

The Folio runs on Intel’s latest quad-core processors, and features an HP CoolSense technology, an intelligent cooling system that should keep your machine from overheating during media-heavy presentations or heavy computations.  Being an ultrabook, the Folio is pretty reasonable priced, too, starting at $899. It might be just what the budding entrepreneur in your family needs this holiday season.
