The HP EliteBook Folio is a 12.5 inch screened device that has been launched by HP to compete the MacBook. Although this is a brave move, there are a lot of features that have not been able to compete against those of the MacBook; except for the price however. Anyone who fancies a MacBook type feature but is not really in that budget slab will find this device rather appealing if they are ready to make a few concessions in terms of performance and internal specifications.
The gadget, as mentioned above has a 12.5 inch screen. It comes with a 1080P resolution, but the company says that they can make the device produce 4K video outputs as well. This is something that still needs a lot of assessment, as some experts who checked the device and reviewed it have commented that the 4K displays are nothing out of the ordinary, at least not as good as what the Retina display of the apple products can put forth. Nevertheless, the screen is worth giving a try, but whether it will support video editing is also a matter of question.
Under the hood, the device is fairly powerful. It comes packed with a processor that is a part of the Skylake range of processors from Intel. There are various models, each packed with a different model, some being the M3, M5 or the M7. Prices, needless to say, will vary with the kind of model you pick. The internal storage will vary from 128GB to 512GB and every model will be equipped very lavishly with 8GB RAM, that will make using these devices rather fun.
The design is super slim; a breadth of mere 0.5 inches or less will make the device highly coveted, as will the weight, which is just below 2.2 pounds.
The price of the device has not been disclosed yet. Perhaps some light on this will be shed when the device is finally showcased in the CES 2016.
