Amazing 2/3 years ago, but there are MUCH MUCH better options out there for the same price. Don't buy, keep looking.

Summary: The folio 13 was great when i bought it in 2012, but now, not so much. There are so many better options out there for laptops and notebooks; New technology, updated intel cores, graphics cards, etc.
Summary: I was expecting very much from this laptop, having in mind the fact tat its price is not what you could call cheap. Unfortunately, it is build of cheap materials and it is very slow. From time to time I work with Photoshop.
Summary: I work for a manufacturing company in the IT dept. We have 7 folio 13 in use (just over a year old now) and all but (2) so far have had the SSD fail in them and had to be replaced. So if you plan to get one, if you don't opt for the 3yr warranty be prepared to buy a new one.
Continous Fan Noise - Very very annoying, Don't buy

Summary: I have the standard version of this ultrabook. The design is great but fan never stops working and makes a loud noise. Even though I changed the BIOS settings and disabled the option 'Fan Always on', it didn't get any better. Additionally, the keyboard is difficult to navigate.
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.
Summary: Nice keyboard, very fast ... But when will manufactures stop putting glossy screens on laptops!? I don't want to see myself in the screen, I want to see my documents. Please give us a MATTE screen! EDIT- Used the laptop for 3 days and returned! The screen is just too glossy and too dim to use.
Maybe HP will make laptops for people who can type,again, one day...

Summary: I love everything about this laptop... except (yet again, for an HP laptop) the mouse pad. This is the third HP laptop I've purchased for my business in the last three years that's had this issue. The mouse pad is too wide and placed too far to the right.
Summary: Computer is fine, but definitely some things to improve. Track pad is HORRIBLE!!! Almost impossible to left click without the pointer jumping across the screen. Half the time I push left click it does right click instead.
Summary: This item was not a hunger games special edition, but the standard edition. Be warned about items "fulfilled by Amazon." Customer service is terrible because Amazon provides the customer service, but doesn't own the shelves so the best they can do is offer you a refund.
