Summary: I purposely waited six months before reviewing this computer simply because it takes time to fairly evaluate this type of purchase. I'm happy to report that there have been no issues whatsoever with this computer. It's just great -- very light and well made, with aluminum panel case. The SSD, which attracted me to this computer in the first place, is very fast and allows for quick boot-up.
Summary: would have loved to kept this and break my apple allegiance, the bad screen and trackpad were deal breakers. if the screen were better i would have just gotten a mouse, but both problems made me just go for the more expensive Air. Apple has ruined me with their excellent hardware. I'm no fanboy, as I could really give or take either system--as I'm largely going the way of Chrome and web based everything. I just want the best hardware.
Great Business Winning Ultrabook, MacBook Air Killer, Best Ultrabook So Far
29 June 2013
Summary: This is HP Folio 13 the best Ultrabook, compared to all other brands of Ultrabook. Why is this is so good and why it's getting so many glowing reviews, an average of 4.8 stars out of 5 stars? This is why: 1. Windows 7 Professional. It's not Windows 7 Home or Windows 8 (which is horrible to run software or do usual business tasks).
Summary: Excellent product for the money. I have been a strong believer of refurbished tech for many years. Especially HP and Toshiba. Not only can you get your hands on some great tech for almost half the price, you get the same warranty as new and you KNOW the manufacturer has tested the snot out of every component.
Summary: after a week of constant updates , i'm getting used to the move from Xp to Windows 7 ... it does freeze up once in a while ,... but i almost expect those issues from any Windows system .. ! it is very lite weight , nice battery life if needed ... feels much much faster doing everything than Win Xp ... still getting used to slight tighter keyboard , but the Backlit keys are great .. !
Summary: It's light, thin, quick to startup, snappy performance in use. It would be nice if it had a VGA out, and I add a wireless mouse since I'm not crazy about touchpads, that's about the only slightly negative things I can think of.
Summary: This is a great little laptop that's very quick and portable. I put Crunchbang Linux on it and it boots in a few seconds. The only problems I've had with it are that when it first boots to Linux, the very first time, right after it's been installed, it boots with the screen brightness at 0 so I had to manually change it. Also, I find the directional buttons to be a bit small for quick use. Otherwise, great buy!
Summary: Отличный ультрабук. В режиме серфинга по WiFi реально работает 12 часов. Мало того, что он компактный и легкий, теперь мне не нужно носить с собой блок питания. Windows загружается мгновенно, материалы качественные, ничего не скрипит, единственный минус это SSD 128Gb. 256 было бы удобней. Раньше пользовался ноутбуком Dell XPS Studio 1340. Батарея держит 2-2.5 часа, в три раза толще ультрабука и тяжелее намного. Он мне очень нравился, пока я не получил этот ультрабук.
