The HP Elite Folio is hands down the best Windows on ARM PC there is. If you compare it to products like the Surface Pro X and the Galaxy Book S, it has the best form factor, the best keyboard, and more. The big problem is that it’s not the best business PC. I love that we’re seeing the market trend toward actually good convertibles. Previously, Windows 10 convertibles were super awkward to use. They were heavy, and they were designed to be laptops. We’re seeing more that were designed with being a tablet in mind. And HP sure pulled out the stops. Along with one of the best keyboards around, the HP Elite Folio packs top-end specs like 16GB RAM and 512GB of storage. It also packs features like HP’s Sure View Reflect privacy display, which is just awesome. Let’s not forget that the battery life is great and it comes with cellular connectivity, up to 5G. I really wish they had it come standard, but it is what it is.

HP's new Elite Folio is powered by the latest generation Snapdragon 8cx processor for Windows 10 laptops. While it is an improvement over earlier ARM based Windows machines I've tested there's still a way's to go before it's a viable Intel/AMD alternative.

If you don't need 64-bit apps like the Adobe Creative Cloud suite and crave an easy-to-carry, highly pen-friendly laptop/tablet combo with 4G or 5G connectivity, sophisticated style, and great battery life, the HP Elite Folio will tempt you—at least until you run smack into its painful price tag. When we reviewed the Lenovo Flex 5G, we said its fast downloads and unkillable battery came at a whopper of a price that relegated the machine to niche appeal, and our Folio costs over $500 more than the Flex. In a world full of first-rate x86 convertibles, the HP offers style and silence at a formidable cost.

However, it doesn’t have a lot of the features that HP’s EliteBooks are known for, such as Sure Click. The Elite Folio does have Sure View, HP’s privacy display, although it’s not on the model that the company sent me. Sure View prevents people from seeing your screen if they look over your shoulder. It does have HP QuickDrop, which lets you send files between your phone and your PC.
