84% Review HP Folio 13-2000 Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Premium Hipflask. HP arrives late to the party with the Folio 13, its own interpretation of the ultrabook, and faces up to the ultraportable competition. The following review shows how well HP's little one performs in a comprehensive hardware test.

There’s just one variant of the HP Folio 13 for now and this retails for Rs.69,990, so it’s about 10K cheaper than the Dell (not to mention, better equipped) and about 25K cheaper than the Toshiba, which makes it the best buy out of the three. The Folio scores high on the excellent industrial design and it feels and looks like it can take a beating, when compared to the other two, which seem a bit delicate. We love the attention to detail, connectivity options, great battery life and excellent keyboard. If you can live with the godawful trackpad buttons, then we highly recommend you check out this Ultrabook, as it’s one of the best in the market and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg (well, just an arm actually).

The HP Folio 13-2000 is the company's first attempt at making one of Intel's ultrabooks and, by golly, it’s got most of it right. The screen may let it down, but the laptop looks good, performs well, looks after its battery and comes in at a very reasonable price of £749. It's hard to argue against such a well-rounded package.

The HP Folio 13 is a solid effort from HP that, instead of blindly shedding features and usability in the name of thin-and-light, strikes a reasonable balance. It may be a tad pricey for some shoppers, but including a solid-state drive always drives up a laptop's price. This model should definitely be on your short list of Ultrabooks to consider. Thicker and heavier than the average ultrabook, the Folio 13 may actually be a more sensible option for many users.

Series:

HP Folio 13 is part of the first generation ultrabooks and was slightly late in the market. For a 13 inch ultrabook, it pretty much comes with a complete basic package for anyone be it small business or normal users. Now, it is not as thin or slim as many other ultrabooks in the similar size range, especially the 13-inch MacBook Air. It is slightly thicker and heavier than the rest, but nothing that is too unbearable for a traveller. Design wise, it is not the most stylish ultrabook one can have but is presentable.

HP Folio 13 has an excellent battery life, which is better than Dell XPS 13 and almost on par with the 13-inch MacBook Air. It is also fitted with all the ports and slots a mobile user would require. It has an excellent backlit keyboard that lacks in some ultrabooks. The keyboard tends to be more spacious than that of the MacBook Air, though the latter’s keyboard is already good enough. However, the touchpad is a little letdown as it feels rather uncomfortable and not as smooth and responsive as some other ultrabooks. This though does not affect the HP Folio 13 as a whole. Another point for us to boast on would be the price, which is nearly €100 lower that the Dells XPS 13's. In being one of the most inexpensive ultrabooks and delivering equally good performance, we would definitely consider it.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

2467M: Power saving ULV processor clocked at 1.6-2.3 GHz due to Turbo boost. Offers an integrated HD 3000 clocked at slow 350 / 1150 MHz and a DDR3-1333 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.47 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
