HP EliteBook Folio 1040 Review

 

The HP EliteBook Folio 1040 business Ultrabook boasts fast performance, strong security and long battery life in a sleek design.

HP EliteBook Folio 1040 G1

 

The rugged HP EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 ultrabook is equipped with a touch screen and trades physical connectivity for a slim and portable chassis. It's a good choice for a business that needs to buy new PCs for an entire staff.
