Reviews for the HP EliteBook Folio G1-W8H05PA

80% HP EliteBook Folio G1 Review: Is It Good for Business?
Source: Business News Daily English
HP's EliteBook Folio G1 is an engineering marvel, proving that superportable laptops don't have to sacrifice the elements that make them great work machines. It packs plenty of power, a sharp display, an excellent keyboard and strong security options into a system that's more portable than any other business-class laptop, bar none.

60% HP EliteBook Folio review: chasing the MacBook
Source: The Verge English
I love the idea of a thin and lightweight laptop, and HP has really nailed the design with the EliteBook Folio. But right now, it’s a compromised machine for what feels like pure design and looks. USB Type-C isn’t mature, and the performance and battery life with the Intel Core M processor inside the Folio just doesn’t keep up with other laptops in this class. It’s a good start to creating a 12-inch MacBook running Windows, but the Folio needs some work behind the scenes before I’d be happy to label it a true MacBook competitor.

80% HP EliteBook Folio G1 (W8H05PA) Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The HP EliteBook Folio G1 targets a very specific niche, complementing the even thinner HP Spectre 13 which has a wider appeal. It's obviously an indulgence, but if you're the type of person who is willing to spend a lot in order to have the best possible tools, you should probably give it serious consideration. You'll be free of the usual bulk and weight that a laptop adds to your baggage, and you'll be able to get a lot done sitting in a cramped auditorium, car, or economy class cabin.

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.

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.
