Series:

HP Folio 13 is part of the first generation ultrabooks and was slightly late in the market. For a 13 inch ultrabook, it pretty much comes with a complete basic package for anyone be it small business or normal users. Now, it is not as thin or slim as many other ultrabooks in the similar size range, especially the 13-inch MacBook Air. It is slightly thicker and heavier than the rest, but nothing that is too unbearable for a traveller. Design wise, it is not the most stylish ultrabook one can have but is presentable.

HP Folio 13 has an excellent battery life, which is better than Dell XPS 13 and almost on par with the 13-inch MacBook Air. It is also fitted with all the ports and slots a mobile user would require. It has an excellent backlit keyboard that lacks in some ultrabooks. The keyboard tends to be more spacious than that of the MacBook Air, though the latter’s keyboard is already good enough. However, the touchpad is a little letdown as it feels rather uncomfortable and not as smooth and responsive as some other ultrabooks. This though does not affect the HP Folio 13 as a whole. Another point for us to boast on would be the price, which is nearly €100 lower that the Dells XPS 13's. In being one of the most inexpensive ultrabooks and delivering equally good performance, we would definitely consider it.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz. Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
2467M: Power saving ULV processor clocked at 1.6-2.3 GHz due to Turbo boost. Offers an integrated HD 3000 clocked at slow 350 / 1150 MHz and a DDR3-1333 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.

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