Reviews for the HP EliteBook Folio G1 V1C37EA
More than just a gadget?! HP now also offers passively cooled business notebooks and the EliteBook Folio G1 is a particularly light and thin 12.5-inch device. It is no surprise that the performance is not very high, but can you still use the small subnotebook in a productive environment?

Excellently built 12-inch ultrabook with the usual trade-offs for an ultra-portable device while still being relatively well-priced. It has a generally good display (the sRGB coverage holds it back), good input devices and extra long battery life. All the essential features for a business-centric machine.

Even though this is a PC that has great consumer appeal for style-minded laptop shoppers, HP does market it as a business/professional machine. That means you get some extra features, such as a MIL-Spec durability, including resistance to dust and short drops, specially tuned audio and mic placement for Skype calls, and a dedicated toll-free support phone line just for EliteBook customers.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.
