The HP Elitebook Folio has been getting some good reviews. I had some hands-on last September and I was impressed at the build and pro-level features. A 54Wh battery and additional slate battery give it some good adaptor-free flexibility too but it was disappointing to see a 1366×768 on such a device. That problem should be solved soon though as HP are going to offer a 1600×900 options soon.

HP Envy 13 Spectre Battery

Step into a German newsagents, look at the magazine rack and you’ll find more testing notes than in a NASA launch sequence.
