HP EliteBook Folio 1020

 

The HP EliteBook Folio 1020 is a business ultraportable laptop that gives you a work system on the go, but the battery life and performance aren't as impressive as its slim design.

Slim, fanless chassis. Ultraportable design with scads of business and security features. Ruggedized MIL-SPEC construction. Touch screen. Energy-efficient Intel Core M CPU. Compatible with HP UltraSlim Dock.

Relatively short battery life. Performance of Core M CPU can't match that of standard Intel Core i5 processors. Reflective display. Short one-year standard warranty.

Conclusion The HP EliteBook Folio 1020 is a well-made machine that offers the portability and aesthetics of the Apple MacBook Air 13-inch (2014), our Editors' Choice mainstream ultraportable, but doesn't match it in every respect. It doesn't deliver...

HP EliteBook Folio 1020 G1 Ultrabook Review

 

Little jack of all trades. The manufacturer describes its new EliteBook as a sturdy travel companion. The build and emissions impress us, but compromises have to be made in performance compared with the competition.

Casing's build, Keyboard, High-quality QHD IPS screen, Temperature development, No noise development, Agreeably smooth workflow

Performance compared with contenders, Price/performance, Touchpad slightly inaccurate, Speakers

HP's EliteBook Folio 1020 certainly asserted itself as an office for on-the-move. We barely found any room for complaint - particularly in build. The aluminum casing convinces, and the screen that is behind a single glass pane makes a high-quality...

HP EliteBook Folio 1020 Ultrabook Review: Great performance for daily work

 

After spending a few months with the HP EliteBook Folio 1020 G1, I give my impressions of HP's latest Ultrabook. How does it stack up against the competition and should you consider buying one?

The EliteBook Folio 1020 G1 is a solid, if unspectacular, device. It's thin and light, and the screen is nice to use for long periods of time. The drivers seem to have progressed since last year's review of the EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 , so the ForcePad...

HP Elitebook Folio 1020 G1 Review

 

When we first unboxed HP's Elitebook Folio 1020 G1, all we could think was, since when are enterprise-laptops this sexy? Of-course, the 1020's design is reminiscent of the MacBook Pro, but it's also a lot thinner and lighter than the Pro, and it really...

It’s the world’s thinnest and lightest business-class notebook! It’s attractive with an excellent build quality that is built to last with military-class specifications. Fanless design runs quietly. Comes with 24/7 premium support. Packed with...

Quality webcam is mediocre. Gets hot in use. Intel Core M processor isn’t as powerful as its Core i5 and i7 counterparts. Occasional lags on simple tasks. Trackpad is a bit too slippery

HP EliteBook Folio 1020 Bang & Olufsen Limited Edition

 

The EliteBook range represents the pinnacle of HP's design efforts. Although business laptops, they're far from the dull-looking workhorses you'd expect with this class of device. In fact, they're slick Ultrabooks with high-quality designs that impress...

HP EliteBook Folio 1020 G1

 

The HP EliteBook Folio 1020 is a business laptop. However, with its aluminium finish, smart logo and tapered front edge, it looks more like a consumer Ultrabook than an office workhorse.

Fantastic design ; Great screen quality ; Numerous business features ; Good ergonomics

More expensive than rivals ; Slower than the competition ; Middling battery life
