The next wave of the Ultrabooks from HP is entering the market, as they have decided to introduce their HP Folio. As we know the Ultrabook is an attempt by Intel to combine the benefits of a netbook and a notebook.
The HP Folio will be featuring a 13.3inch super thin laptop and will be powered by a Core i5-2467M processor and will be mainly running on Windows 7 platform. This model is mainly considered as business-oriented for its features and a longer battery life, than the competition so far. The system can run Microsoft Office, access email and surf the web with great ease which helps the system to fit within the business category.
For storage it is provided with a 128GB SSD. It also includes a USB 3.0 port which will also let you use an external storage as the storage provided with it does not seem to be high enough for storing a lot of data. Another USB 2.0 is also provided for more connectivity.
This HP model is offering a Trusted Platform Module which sets it apart from other competing Ultrabook models. This chip is a core element of using Microsoft’s BitLocker encryption and provides an additional security feature lacking in other Ultrabooks.
It also is said to provide a battery life of around 9 hours and also includes HP CoolSense technology designed to keep the computer cool.
This model is 0.71inches thick and weighs around 3.28 pounds which put in the Ultrabook category. It is also priced at $900, which is also satisfies the next guideline of the Ultrabooks that is priced under $1000. But HP has not yet revealed how much the TPM embedded Folio will cost.
