HP reveal spec-heavy Folio 13 UltraBook

Laptops / Notebooks, Tech Digest news

HP jump into the UltraBook market today with the light-but-powerful HP Folio 13. A thin, stylish looker, it doesn’t scrimp on the specs despite selling for a reasonable $900.

Featuring a Core i5-2467M, (with dual-core i7 versions on the way), a 128GB SSD and 4GB of DDR3 memory, it’ll be more or less capable of all but the most intensive of PC tasks.

Connections-wise, HP squeeze in a HDMI port, Ethernet, both USB 2.0 and 3.0 plugs, memory card reader and mic/headphone hybrid port.

The 13.3 inch screen doesn’t quite hit full HD resolutions, maxing out at 1366×768, but manages an impressive 9 hours of battery life per charge. At 1.5kg and 18mm thick, the Folio 13 isn’t feather-light, but remains perfectly portable.

All in, it’s looking a capable rival to Apple’s MacBook Air and Toshiba’s Toshiba Portégé Z830.

Touching down in the US on December 7th, we’ll keep you posted on any UK release info.
