HP unveils business ultrabook
Press release, November 16; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 16 November 2011]

HP has introduced its first business ultrabook, which features a thin and light design, strong security options and a solid-state hard drive.

The HP Folio13 also delivers up to nine hours of battery life, the highest performance available among ultrabook devices currently on the market, HP claimed.

Measuring less than 18mm thin and using an ultraslim 13.3-inch diagonal high-definition BrightView display, the HP Folio13 weighs 3.3-pounds. It combines the industrial design found on consumer products with the security and usability business users demand.

Powered by the latest Intel Core processors, the HP Folio13 also includes Intel Rapid Start Technology, which helps save time by getting systems up and running fast.

The HP Folio13 includes a backlit keyboard for mobile users who work in low-light conditions. A full array of ports, including RJ-45 and USB 3.0, allows users greater flexibility to connect to the information they need. The HP Folio13 also includes an SSD with 128GB of storage for fast response times and increased reliability.

One model will include a TPM Embedded Security Chip that protects data in email as well as information on the hard drive for security-conscious users.

The HP Folio13 features HP CoolSense technology, which uses hardware and intelligent software for a noticeably cooler notebook. The notebook also includes an HP ImagePad for highly accurate, advanced multitouch gesture support.

Additional features include an HP TrueVision HD Webcam for brighter, cleaner HD images, and Dolby Advanced Audio.

The HP Folio13 also can be configured with a range of Microsoft Windows 7 operating systems, including Windows 7 Professional. A three-year limited warranty is available through an optional HP Care Pack.

Users who need a desktop-like environment or additional audio, video, network and USB connectivity can connect the HP Folio13 to the optional HP USB 2.0 dock.

The HP Folio13 is expected to be available on December 7 with a starting price of US$899.99.
