Slick looking. No touch screen for this price??? And a clunky dongle for your proprietary HP port.

Summary: I received one of these for work. This is your basic laptop. There's no touch screen. There's no optical drive (I know, those are passe, but I still like them!). There's no HDMI port. This is very much your laptop for work.
Summary: I use for work and travel. So far I like it. it is solid, no issues. Good performance. Battery life is okay for a 14 inch computer. Could be better. The problem for me is click-less trackpad. I've basically given up using it. I carry a small mouse everywhere.
Summary: The HP EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 is a class leading ultrabook. It certainly doesn't come inexpensively, but it is hard to argue with its performance. The build quality is exceptional as with all HP Elite series products.

Summary: Laptop is solidly built, and running Windows 7, it is a perfect machine for my high school son who takes his laptop to school in his backpack. The lightweight and long battery life are what drew us to this laptop. Screen is excellent. Keyboard is excellent. Trackpad is excellent.
Nice unit. Solid and steady. Just what this media type needs...

Summary: I thought that I already posted one review. Great notebook, very nice design, quite sturdy too. Screen is not retina quality but it is still very clear and has quite vivid colors. Like Windows 7, although it has some features of windows 8 (like having a short cuts to facebook, twitter etc, to may of...
Excerpt: With the help of my son, who is a computer chip designer, we selected this laptop to have solid state memory instead of a spinning disk, to be lightweight, to use Windows 7 instead of Windows 8, and to be high performance in every imaginable way.
Pros: Easy to Use, Battery Life, Display Screen, Lightweight, Quality, Easy to Set Up, Performance
Summary: I love the size and weight of this ultrabook it is perfect for traveling but also just great for carrying around. I'm not sure why anyone would need anything larger. All the functions and finish of this HP machine show true quality. I have not no...
