Reviews for the HP EliteBook Folio G1-X2F49EA

60% Review: HP EliteBook Folio G1 - great looks, terrible battery life
Source: PC Authority English
With a tweaked specification – an NVMe SSD for speed and Full HD screen for better battery life – the EliteBook Folio G1 could have been a clear winner. As it stands, it not only falls shy of the Apple MacBook, it doesn’t come close to the fabulous Dell XPS 13.

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.
