HP Folio 13 Series

HP Folio 13-1012tu

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.

90% Business chic for power users: HP Folio 13-1008tu review
Source: APC Mag English
The Altec Lansing speakers were of reasonable quality, but they aren’t the Folio 13’s strongest point. For that matter the 13.3in (1,366 x 768 resolution) screen had good colour depth when looked at directly, but becomes ordinary when viewed from side angles. Since these are the only major weak points of this Ultrabook, it’s clear that this is a stellar machine.

HP Folio 13 Review – This Ultrabook Means Business
Source: Notebooks.com English
The HP Folio 13 is one of the best ultrabooks we’ve seen so far in terms of performance, battery life, and design. I would recommend it without hesitation if it didn’t have that dodgy touchpad. And that’s a hard flaw to ignore considering it’s one of the most important elements of a laptop. At $899 it’s only $50 more than the Toshiba Portege z835. While that system is thinner and lighter it can’t compete on performance. The Lenovo IdeaPad U300s has a more powerful CPU but costs almost twice as much and has fewer ports. The Folio manages to hit a nice goldilocks zone.

Oddly, HP is positioning the Folio 13 as both a consumer and a business notebook, and given its no-nonsense design, that makes sense. There’s even a version you can buy with a TPM chip inside for the crypto-obsessed guys in the IT department. The version sold through most consumer outlets, however, has a mountain of shovelware preinstalled — “HP Games,” an eBay icon, and two apps for streaming and creating music. The commercial/business versions don’t have any of these preloaded apps.

HP Folio Review: First Impressions of the First Business Ultrabook

The HP Folio is in the house! We’ve been excited about this business-focused ultraportable since we got a first glimpse last year and went hands-on at CES. The enterprise version (with TPM) is $999, but the configuration available to consumers costs just $899. The specs are all still here including a Core i5 processor, 128GB SSD, and even the backlit keys.

The consumer version of the HP Folio 13.3 inch ultrabook is starting at $898. The business version will follow in January, featuring an embedded TPM security chip, Windows 7 Professional, and an optional three-year warranty, including HP’s Care Pack. A USB-2 docking station will also be available, offering additional monitor and speaker outputs and enhanced connectivity options.

70% HP Folio 13 Review: A Lean, Mean 13-Inch Ultrabook
Source: Notebookreview.com English
We have a number of great things to say about the HP Folio 13 after spending a few weeks using this modestly-priced ultrabook. For starters, the build quality is second to none in the ultrabook category. The aluminum construction makes the Folio 13 extremely solid without making it too thick or heavy. Not only that, but HP didn't sacrifice something important like a media card reader just to save a fraction of an inch or an extra ounce of weight. Yes, it stinks that you can't easily replace components or swap the battery, but these are pretty standard issues with ultrabooks. Bottom line, if you can live with the average glossy screen and twitchy clickpad the HP Folio 13 is an very solid, affordable ultrabook with a good balance of performance and features.

But if the HP Folio 13 isn't the longest-lasting ultrabook on the market, well, it isn't the thinnest or lightest or fastest, either. What it is, is one of the most immaculate designs we've seen, with clever attention to small details as well as thoughtful attention paid to big issues like connectivity and typing comfort. With either a slightly brighter screen or a couple of better benchmark numbers, the Folio 13 would have bumped our Editors' Choice Asus Zenbook UX31 from its top spot; as is, it's a must-have on ultrabook shoppers' short lists.

When it comes to Windows ultrabooks, the HP Folio 13 is the best of the bunch in terms of performance, price, and ergonomics, provided you can live with a less-than-razor-thin design. This laptop is targeted at small businesses but it's really for anyone who wants a reliable ultrabook that isn't a MacBook Air.

HP Folio 13 Review
Source: Slashgear English
The Folio 13 is a good showing for HP, combining solid value, admirable build quality and excellent longevity into a package that’s only slightly bigger than other Ultrabooks. If you’re looking for an ultrabook that won’t have you scrambling for a power outlet, this is pretty much your only option at the moment – for an afternoon outing you can even leave the AC power adapter behind. The screen is an unfortunate fly in the ointment, but it’s counter-balanced by the best all-in-one touchpad I’ve ever used on the PC side of things. If you’ve got a budget that won’t stretch beyond a thousand dollars and a desire for all-day computing in a light package, the Folio might be the best in a field of one. That said, with all the Ultrabooks shown at CES 2012 (including HP’s own stunning ENVY 14 Spectre) you might wait a couple of months before making your final decision

Ultrabooks have become one of the most talked about tech trends as we head into 2012 and the HP Folio 13 is one of these new, sleek, ultraportable notebooks. It weighs only 3.2-pounds, has extra long battery life and speedy performance thanks to its Intel Core i5 CPU and 128GB solid-state hard drive.

If you've been wondering whether you should buy the HP Folio 13, the answer is probably yes. (After all, we're guessing people who want a higher-res display and lighter build have already moved on.) There's just so much to love in this $900 machine: it boots quickly, includes a robust selection of ports, can be configured with helpful business features and offers a refreshingly comfortable typing experience.

The HP Folio 13 offers solid performance, fast boots, fantastic sound, and the best battery life of any Ultrabook on the market. Business users will also appreciate the sturdy design, backlit keyboard, and Ethernet port, though they'll want to make sure they buy a version that comes with HP ProtectTools. However, the device also suffers from a stiff touchpad and the dimmest screen in its class.

Overall, the HP Folio 13-1008TU Ultrabook is excellent. It's not the lightest unit in its class (the Toshiba is 1.1kg compared to the HP's 1.5kg), but it's solidly built, very comfortable to use, has USB 3.0 and supplies long battery life. Its screen also isn't too bad and its performance was quite swift.

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.

We gave the HP Folio 13 an Editors' Choice award when we first saw it in January, and the Folio 13-1020us doesn't change our high opinion of the ultrabook. We could wish for a mite brighter display and four or five ounces less weight (as if we could get those things without sacrificing battery life), but as is it's a combination of value, performance, and portability that exemplifies what ultrabooks are all about.

Assuming the display and bloatware don't scare you off (and they probably shouldn't, honestly), the Folio 13 ought to be toward the top of your list if you're shopping for an ultrabook. The system's nearly fingerprint-proof finish, professional aesthetics, comfy backlit keyboard, lengthy battery life and snappy performance make it an easy sell at $900. Here's hoping the coming wave of Ivy Bridge ultrabooks are equally solid.

HP is aggressively pricing its first ultrabook at just $900 for the Folio 13 with some impressive features but it is hampered by a few major issues. Performance from the system is very good and the battery life is currently the best in the ultrabook segment. The extra size does give it extra peripheral ports that most of the competition provide.

The 1.6GHz Core i5 2467M processor and 4GB of RAM are fast enough for most everyday tasks, although you can't fit more RAM. 4GB is enough for now, but it may not be enough in future as software tends to become more memory intensive. The Intel integrated graphics chip is fast enough for playing high definition video and older games, but not the latest 3D titles.

The Folio 13 comes with an industry-standard one-year parts and labor warranty.

The HP Folio 13 certainly isn't the slimmest, lightest or best-looking ultrabook I've seen, nor does it have the best screen. But its smart appearance is likely to appeal to the professionals among you and the cutbacks in the screen resolution have resulted in a fair asking price.

Personally, I like the HP Folio 13 more than most, and pricing is decent at around $1000 for our review unit. However, like the competition the Folio 13 just doesn't seem quite ready for prime time yet. It's also important to remember that Ivy Bridge refreshes within the next month could substantially alter the ultrabook landscape.

Compared with other business Ultrabooks, such as the Toshiba Z830, the HP Folio 13 stands out slightly in terms of design. Given the slim performance differences between Ultrabooks, and their similar specifications, a decision often comes down to a subjective opinion about appearance and, therefore, you may not feel the same way.

The HP Folio is generally an excellent Ultrabook, marrying consistent design to good build quality, thoughtful features and class-leading battery life. The flipside is that Folio can be noisy under load, the touchpad buttons are stiff and it has yet to see the significant price drops that have made initially more expensive rivals become arguably better value. However, it remains an attractive option.

HP sells the Folio 13 as a business Ultrabook, but to be honest, we have hard time seeing what makes this an enterprise laptop. Build quality, though robust, is not up to the level of a Lenovo ThinkPad or HP EliteBook. There’s not even a matte display option. Fortunately, this marketing mishap doesn’t ruin the product.

80% HP Folio 13
Source: Digital Versus English
Finally, our review of HP's first 13.3" ultrabook, the Folio 13. With an Intel Core i5 processor, a 128 GB SSD and a 1.8-cm-thick body, is it enough to make the 11" MacBook Air and Asus UX31E tremble in their boots?The Asus UX31E may have the advantage when it comes to look and screen resolution, but the Folio 13 has a better battery life and audio, for the same price and processor power.

90% HP Folio 13 - An Elite Ultrabook
Source: Hardware Zone English
To make a long story short, the HP Folio 13 is a notebook that is heavily marketed towards businesses users which would also sit comfortably well with most consumers as well. As an Ultrabook, you would already expect good battery life, but as we've shown, it has phenomenal battery life to let you breeze through the better part of the day with nary a bleep for the charger.

HP reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

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.

Intel Core i3:

2367M: Power efficient ULV processor clocked at 1.4 GHz without Turbo boost. Offers an integrated HD 3000 clocked at slow 350 / 1000 MHz and a DDR3-1333 memory controller.


13.0: 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.
