Here is the press release:
BRACKNELL, UK, Nov. 16, 2011 – HP today introduced its first business Ultrabook, the HP Folio. It features a thin and light design, best-in-class battery life, strong security options and a responsive solid state hard drive for the ultimate mobile experience.
The HP Folio13 delivers up to 9.5 hours of battery life, best- in- class among current Ultrabooks on the market. With all day battery life, users will no longer be saddled with carrying power adapters to charge their notebook, while a wide array of ports eliminates the need to carry cumbersome dongles. Mobile professionals can now stay productive and get through their entire day – from home to business to home- with only the HP Folio13.
Measuring less than 18 millimetres thin and utilizing an ultra slim 33.8 cm (13.3”) diagonal high-definition (HD) BrightView display, the Folio13 weighs just 1.49 kg.
Powered by the latest Intel Core processors, the HP Folio13 also includes 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.
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 a solid state drive (SSD) with 128 GB of storage for fast response times and increased reliability.
An optional TPM Embedded Security Chip protects data in email and information on the hard drive for security-conscious users.
The HP Folio13 features HP CoolSense technology, which uses advanced 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 HP USB 2.0 dock.
