HP Folio ‘a pleasure to use’ say PC World in Ultrabook Review

Updated on 14 December 2011 by

One of the first reviews of the HP Folio, the 13-1008TU (aka the HP DM3) with Core i5, is in and it’s looking good. Fast disk, good keyboard, long battery life and a good suite of ports.

At 1.5KG the HP Folio is a little on the portly side but it looks like that weight includes some good battery capacity. The review at PCWorld Australia gives it 4 out of 5 stars and although it’s not an in-depth review, it’s one of the first indicators that the HP Folio could have some success in the market.

In the USA, the base version, a Core i5 model, costs just $899 and should ship on the 30th December, just in time for getting back to work after the new year.

Note: We’ve just taken deliver of the Toshiba Z830. Stay tuned for review content on that. There will be a live review and Q&A on Friday at 2100 CET (Berlin)

    Hey HP, why don’t you send Chippy one? Nobody on the web does multiple hour live session video reviews on his level.

    Also, make an 11″ model.
