HP launched its first Ultrabook, the HP Folio 13, in India today for a starting price of Rs. 69,990. It features a thin and light design, superior battery life (up to 9.5hrs), good security options and a responsive solid state hard drive to boot. Measuring less than 0.75-inch thin and utilizing an ultra slim 13.3-inch (33.782 cms) diagonal high-definition (HD) BrightView display, the Folio 13 weighs just 1.5kg, making it very portable.
Slim and lightweight
The notebook will be powered by Intel’s newest Core processors and will also include Intel Rapid Start Technology, which provides ultra-low power consumption when not in use and a fast resume time, when needed – saving time, while extending battery life and stand-by time. You also get a backlit keyboard for mobile users who work in low-light conditions. A full array of ports, including RJ-45 and USB 3.0, allow users flexibility, while the solid state drive (SSD) with 128GB of storage provides fast response times and increased reliability.
The Ultrabook also comes with some of their own features, like HP CoolSense technology, which uses advanced hardware and intelligent software for a noticeably cooler notebook. The notebook also includes an HP Imagepad for accurate advanced multi-touch gesture support. Additional features include an HP TrueVision HD webcam for brighter, cleaner HD images, and Dolby Advanced Audio. The HP Folio 13 also can be configured with a range of Microsoft Windows 7 operating systems, including Windows 7 Professional. Finally, a three-year limited warranty is also 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 Folio 13 to the HP USB 2.0 dock that’s sold separately.
