HP has announced that its first business Ultrabook - the HP Folio - will hit the stores on December 7.
The new Ultrabook laptop, which weighs 1.2 kilo's and comes with a thickness of 0.7 inches, sports an ultraslim 13.3in diagonal high-definition BrightView display.
The Palo Alto-based company said the new laptop delivers up to nine hours of battery life, sufficient to get users through the entire business day. The HP Folio, which is powered by Intel Core i5 processor, also features an ethernet port, eliminating the need to carry dongles.
Instant start-up is possible with the Intel Rapid Start Technology, helping save time. The new Ultrabook laptop also includes a solid-state hard drive and 4GB of memory, according to HP, which announced on October 27 that its PC unit will remain part of the company. The HP Folio is expected to offer tough competition to Apple's skinny MacBook Air.
