Summary: HP Engineering provides a wonderful design with a nice layout, good screen resolution, excellent wireless and enough ports (USB2, USB3, HDMI, etc.,) to provide great flexibility to connect to almost any device. The problem that we encountered was the additional HP installed software provided for customer support seems to have conflicts with the Windows 7 operating system. The result is a repeated blue screen and a system dump.
Summary: I had already purchased a Samsung Series 5 ultrabook and wanted to see if the Folio 13 lived up to all the positive reviews it's gotten in the press. Too bad it has too many negative points in my eyes, and it's sad, because I really wanted to like it. First nail in the coffin: the function keys for volume and brightness don't work out of the box.
Summary: The laptop itself is pretty good. However, the one shipped to me does not have WiDi (wireless display) capability, which is listed as a standard feature on the HP website. Dealing with HP's (award winning!) tech support was an infuriating experience, which lasted several hours over multiple phone calls, and resulted in them refusing to provide a WLAN card with WiDi capability.
