HP Folio 13 Review

 

Nice build; good port selection; strong battery life; low entry price

Better performance can be had for the price; TN screen quality, and not very bright

While HP’s Folio 13 is sized similarly to the other ultrabooks we’ve tested, sporting a 13.3‑inch screen and measuring 12.54x8.67x.7 inches, it’s a bit heavier than the others, but not by much. With a lap weight of 3 pounds, 4.8 ounces, it’s 3.7 ounces...

HP Folio 13 Ultrabook Review

 

HP has been quite busy this year with plenty of announcements in the notebook space, especially Ultrabooks. Only a couple of days back, they announced their new Ivy Bridge line of Ultrabooks and Sleekbooks, but there's still time before they hit our...

There’s just one variant of the HP Folio 13 for now and this retails for Rs.69,990, so it’s about 10K cheaper than the Dell (not to mention, better equipped) and about 25K cheaper than the Toshiba, which makes it the best buy out of the three. The...

Review HP Folio 13-2000 Ultrabook

 

Premium Hipflask. HP arrives late to the party with the Folio 13,

Considerable battery life; Very refined materials and workmanship; Good keyboard; Impressive sound for a notebook of this size

Glossy display: barely suitable for outdoors; Very stiff touchpad keys; Display isn't edge-to-edge => a sham; Possible performance cannot be completely called upon

That HP has set the fan to be in continuous operation, instead of immediately changing a BIOS setting to silence the notebook, where it then remains pleasantly quiet.

HP Folio 13-1020us

 

The HP Folio 13-1020us is one of the most handsomely designed and well-engineered ultrabooks you can buy for $900.

Great keyboard and battery life. Full set of ports

Half a pound overweight. Screen a little underbright

HP Folio 13 Review: Deviating From the Norm

 

The initial bum rush of ultrabooks resulted in, with limited exception, a lot of designs that took most of their cues from Apple's MacBook Air. Even Dell's XPS 13, otherwise very different from what came before it, still maintained that wedge shape....

Of the ultrabooks I've tested so far, the ones I've personally liked the best have been the Dell XPS 13 and this one, the HP Folio 13. Both have fairly good keyboards and both deviate from the norm a little bit, displaying some ingenuity and thought in...

HP Folio 13-1029wm

 

The HP Folio 13-1029wm takes $100 off what was already one of the most affordable and desirable ultrabooks.

Affordable. First-class keyboard. Good array of ports

Could be a little lighter. Screen could be a little brighter

HP Folio 13

 

Ultrabooks meant for business use have been rare so far. In fact, as of this moment the HP Folio 13 is the only “business Ultrabook” on the market. Lenovo's ThinkPad Ultrabook isn't due for several months.

Solid build quality ; Attractive ; Good keyboard ; Above average battery life ; Solid performance

Resolution could be higher ; Glossy display can be annoying ; Distracting software suite

The HP Folio 13 is one of the best Ultrabooks on the market today, no matter what it’s labeled. The user interface is excellent, build quality is high, performance is solid and battery life is much better than average. All of this is made sweeter by a...

HP Folio 13 Review: An Ultrabook for the Masses

 

HP's Folio 13, the first of a new product line designed to appeal to both mainstream and business users, isn't the thinnest or lightest Ultrabook around. But unless you're a fanatic about such things, it will probably fill your needs better than its...

Long-lasting; good performance ; Nice typing platform

Nonremovable battery ; Busy software installation

Thicker and heavier than the average ultrabook, the Folio 13 may actually be a more sensible option for many users.

HP Folio 13 Review: A Lean, Mean 13-Inch Ultrabook

 

HP's Folio 13 is a 13-inch aluminum-wrapped ultrabook packed with an Intel Core i5 processor and 128GB solid state drive for a price of just $899. Can this HP ultrabook compete against higher-priced ultrabooks with higher specs? Read on to find out.

Good backlit keyboard ; Solid aluminum construction with plenty of ports ; Good battery life

Average, overly glossy screen ; Default clickpad settings are horrible ; Fan gets noisy at times

As ultrabooks become a major part of the laptop landscape this year, the key to finding a good one won't be specs--since so many have identical innards--so much as look, feel, and bang for the buck. The HP Folio 13 is a small business-targeted...

The HP Folio 13 has everything that matters most in an ultrabook: very good battery life, an excellent backlit keyboard, all the requisite ports for mobile use, and a very comfortable feel, along with a competitive entry-level price.

The Folio 13 is no looker compared with other ultrabooks, and is a bit thicker and heavier than thin laptops such as the MacBook Air. The clickpad's just a bit too finicky for our tastes, too.

When it comes to Windows ultrabooks, the HP Folio 13 is the best of the bunch in terms of performance, price, and ergonomics, provided you can live with a less-than-razor-thin design. This laptop is targeted at small businesses but it's really for...
