HP Folio 13 Ultrabook Review

Tech2
5 December 2012
  • Summary: 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 Folio scores high on the excellent industrial design and it feels and looks like it can take a beating, when compared to the other two, which seem a bit delicate.

HP Folio 13 Review

maximum pc
29 May 2012
  • Excerpt: 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 heavier than the Asus Zenbook, although its battery is nearly twice the size and weight of the latter’s. Aesthetically, the Folio 13 is pleasing. The lid, keyboard deck, and palm rest are all brushed aluminum.
  • Pros: Nice build; good port selection; strong battery life; low entry price.
  • Cons: Better performance can be had for the price; TN screen quality, and not very bright.

  • Conclusion: Overall, we liked this laptop—and of the nine ultrabooks we've looked at to date, the Folio 13 is both the most business- and finger-friendly. However, we're not convinced it's the best value in the ultrabook market.
  • Pros: Comfortable backlit keyboard, Windows 7 Professional, TPM security chip, Relatively long battery life, High-quality Webcam
  • Cons: Narrow screen viewing angle, Slightly high price, Only one USB 3.0 port

HP Folio 13 Ultrabook Review

TechSpot
11 April 2012
  • Conclusion: At 3.3lbs (1.49kg), HP's offering isn't the lightest around, nor is it the thinnest at 0.7in. In fact, it's toward the upper limits of both attributes with most ultrabooks weighing 2.4-2.9lbs and measuring 0.51-0.67in thick. However, I wouldn't appreciate the system more if it were smaller, nor would I likely notice a 0.5lb/1mm difference. It's also tough to bash on the Folio's size disadvantage considering its solid build quality.

HP Folio 13

MobileTechReview.com
6 April 2012
  • Conclusion: This is the man in the dull gray suit. He goes to work dutifully and gets the job done. He's tireless and reliable but not a standout. The Folio 13 isn't a looker and it doesn't ride with high class materials like some Ultrabooks, but it's sturdy, has a great keyboard and class leading battery life. We wish HP had gone with a brighter panel, though that might have brought down battery life to pedestrian levels.
  • Pros: Class-leading battery life, very good backlit keyboard.
  • Cons: Dull design, dim display.

Review HP Folio 13-2000 Ultrabook

Notebookcheck
4 March 2012
  • Summary: Premium Hipflask. HP arrives late to the party with the Folio 13, its own interpretation of the ultrabook, and faces up to the ultraportable competition. The following review shows how well HP's little one performs in a comprehensive hardware test.
  • Pros: Considerable battery life, Very refined materials and workmanship, Good keyboard, Impressive sound for a notebook of this size, The excellent keyboard, the solid build quality and the good battery life.
  • Cons: 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, A display that can be used outdoors, i.e. it should be somewhat brighter, and/or it should be a matte panel in order to avoid reflections and allow real mobility.
