HP announced that it would be releasing three laptops and that each will actually look to take aim at different sets of crowds. The three notebooks they introduced were the HP EliteBook Folio 1040 G1, EliteBook Revolve G2, and the HP Classmate notebook.
If you are in the market for a new notebook these three from HP more than likely will fit something that you are looking for. They are priced fairly well and are surely to make you happy with them.
At this time we haven’t had a chance to view them so we will just give you the information we have on them at this point. Stay tuned for a review on the trio of notebooks from HP. Let’s take a lot at the HP EliteBook Folio.
HP EliteBook Folio 1040 G1
One of the first laptop tops that they announced was the HP EliteBook Folio 1040 G1. THe Folio 1040 G1 comes with the 4th gen dual-core Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processors. You will get a touchscreen display on a 14-inch screen with 1600 x 900 screen resolution. 1920 x 1080 display is also available if you would like to choose that option.
Storage options for the HP EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 range from the 128GB SSD to 256 SSD and the graphic options are HD 4400 and 5000GPU’s. The EliteBook Folio from HP is said to be built very well and is a tough notebook. It is even touted as passing the MIL-STD 810G durability tests from the U.S. Military.
This notebook weighs in at 3.3 pounds and if you add the cage it is still only 15.9mm thick and the company says that this is the slimmest ultrabook they have made in the Elite line of notebooks. The HP EliteBook Folio comes with multiple internet options for connectivity and two USB 3.0 ports, display port, card reader and also a headphone/microphone jack.
You will also get 802.11 a/b/g/n to 4G LTE for internet connectivity options and the EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 features the ForcePad touchpad. Per Hewlett Packard the ForcePad is suppose to replicate the same gestures that are available on mobile devices.
There are two other notebooks available from HP that were announced however we wanted to take a look at the HP Elitebook Folio 1040 G1 notebook since it is the one we feel most people would want. Coming in priced at only $1,299.00 it is a good price for what it has to offer. If you are looking for a new notebook and don’t want to spend above $1000 for a laptop check out the HP Spectre 13 with Intel Haswell. This comes in at $999 but there is a good chance that you will be able to find a good holiday deal some where to help you save a few bucks.
