HP unveils Folio 13 Ultrabook

HP joins the increasingly popular Ultrabook party, but will it be enough to tempt you away from the competition?
We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

HP’s first Ultrabook has been a long time coming (we first caught wind of it back in July) but today the PC giant lifted the curtains off its first offering – the HP Folio 13.

Packing a 13.3in display and tipping the scales at 1.5kg, the Folio 13 should be portable enough for most, although the uniform 18mm thickness may seem a tad on the chunky side when compared to the likes of Asus’ Zenbook or Apple's MacBook Air.

On the bright side, the Folio 13 does offer quite a bit of bang for your buck, with Intel’s latest processors, USB 3.0 and a speedy 128GB of SSD storage included. Prices start at £850 – in line with the lesser-specced 11in MacBook Air.

Either way, the once-sparse Ultrabook market is beginning to grow, with more and more new arrivals stepping into the arena in a bid to ensnare your wallets. Which one will you go for? Let us know on Twitter.
