Summary: Excellent computer for people on the go. Computer is very light and robust (so far) The i5 processor provides plenty of computer power for standard applications (Office, Skype, and Chrome). No issues with running multiple processes in multiple windows. 4 gig of RAM and 128 gig of SSD is a little light on memory, but then this is optimized for travel, or classroom use.
Summary: After my old Macbook went to the big Apple Store in the Sky, I decided to switch over to a PC. I purchased a used HP Folio 13 in December 2012; the first owner had had it for six months and used it lightly during that time. This owner installed Windows 8, which I've been using happily. I upgraded to 8.1 when that came out, a transition that went smoothly. Many people have a beef with Windows 8 as an OS, but it certainly doesn't trouble this computer to run it.
Summary: Great laptop. I initially bought this JUST for travel. However over the past few months this has become my main PC. I am a fairly straight forward PC user: Office, Outlook, Web, some other exotic programs but thats about it - and Media. Excellent battery life. Very light, not as light as the samsung comprable, but this as opposed to the samsung series 9 has a better keyboard and wifi (my colleague has the Samsung).
Summary: Small, light, good screen, excellent keyboard with good feel, quick to open and awaken from sleep. I thought the 128 mb solid state disc might be too small, but with the cloud it works well. Only had it for a month but loving it so far.
Battery life is amazing (7hrs +) and the profile of the laptop is nice and thin, but feel very sturdy.

Summary: I love everything about this laptop except for the fan noise that many previous people have mentioned. I also was expecting this to run faster than my HP dv6 model with a core i3 processor, since my folio has a core i5 processor, but that is not the case unfortunately. Other than that, the light weight, thin profile, sturdy built with a long battery life is hard to beat. Also, with the ssd, this thing boots up really fast!
Summary: I bought this Ultrabook on a lightening deal and took a chance since I never saw it in the stores. I use it sparingly because this has become a travel computer. It is vastly superior to the Netbooks that I tried and comes close to the performance that I get from my much higher end 17 inch laptops. It is of course limited in performance because of the slower processor but for typical internet viewing, simple computer tasks, it works very well.
Summary: This ultrabook was a huge upgrade compared to my prior laptop, mainly due to the speed provided by the Solid State Drive. I can be up and surfing in under 30 seconds vs the several minutes on my prior machine. Also, the light weight makes it perfect to take on vacation. The only negative I would give it is the screen is pretty low resolution.
Summary: Great laptop, having this laptop for 4 days, everything works well so far. The screen is not one of the best but acceptable. Keyboard and trackpad works very well. Battery up to 5 hours depends on how you use it. I got 5 hours for surfing the internet and watching youtube. I used torrent and let the screen be turned off, it got up to 8-9 hours. It gets some heat and can be quite hot at the bottom but you will rarely notice it unless you touch the bottom.
Summary: Simple,attractive practially instant on, clean lines, and very functional. I got this ultrabook as a dedicated portable for power point presentations. Works flawlessly, and for the price its a no brainer!
