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.

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.

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.
