Reviews for the HP EliteBook Folio G1-V1C36EA

Review: HP Elitebook Folio G1 business class laptop
Source: Bill Bennett English
HP has returned to form in recent months. The HP Spectre is excellent, the Elitebook Folio G1 is as good. It is an unfussy business laptop. HP designed it for companies and corporate buyers. It has corporate features like Intel vPro support which IT professionals use to manage PCs in organisations. There is a dedicated communications button that can link to Skype for Business.

60% HP EliteBook Folio G1 review - the Windows 10 Macbook replacement?
Source: Expert Reviews English
This is such a shame, as the HP Elitebook Folio G1 looks every bit like the ultimate Windows 10 ultraportable. It’s desirable and its premium, lightweight looks should make it the most sought after device HP’s ever made. Sadly, it’s all undermined by its terrible battery life and underwhelming performance, which at this kind of price just isn’t acceptable. The XPS 13 might not be quite as slender, but when it’s both faster and longer-lasting, and has an equally gorgeous display and top class build quality, the G1 just can’t compete.

60% HP EliteBook Folio G1

We’ve been fond of previous HP laptops, so the lack of attention to detail in the HP EliteBook Folio G1 is surprising. From responsiveness, performance and cooling to battery life and ergonomics, HP has fumbled the ball with the design of this ultra portable laptop.

80% HP EliteBook Folio G1 (1080p HD)
Source: PC Mag English
Compared with its 4K-equipped sibling, whose sharp looks and generally compelling feature set it shares, the 1080p HD version of the HP EliteBook Folio G1 trades screen resolution and storage space for more battery life and a smaller price tag. For that reason, we think it's a better buy for most users. That said, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon also has an attractive minimalist design, but increases the screen resolution; adds multiple traditional I/O connectors like HDMI and USB 3.0, a spill-resistant keyboard, and longer battery life; and boasts superior performance that helps offset its slightly heavier weight and higher price, so it's still our Editors' Choice for business laptops.

Review: HP EliteBook Folio G1 offers lightweight business computing
Source: Computerworld.com English
Thin, light and with one of the best keyboards this side of a desktop PC, the Folio twins -- both the touch and non-touch models -- are easy to use and travel with. They are well equipped and deliver the right balance of performance, manageability and security. While the more powerful, long-lasting and cheaper HD model appeals to the left, more logical side of my brain, the right side dominates here and I lust after the incredibly bright, rich and useful UHD touch model.

Ревю на HP EliteBook Folio G1 – елитният ултрабук
Source: Laptop Mag English
Изклюително здрав 12-инчов ултрабук с добра цена и очаквани характеристики. Има добър дисплей (единствено sRGB покритието не е оптимално), добри клавиатура и тъчпад и много дълъг живот на батерията. Всички важни особености за бизнес устройство за налични.
Positive: High mobility; compact size; lightweight; good ergonomy. Negative: Poor display; only 2 USB-C.

12.5":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
