HP’s business-centric laptop isn’t the thinnest of the bunch, but it’s definitely one of the more powerful. Donning a brushed aluminum finish, the Folio 13 tackles a notable spec sheet consisting of a 1.6GHz dual-core Core i5-2467M chip, Intel's HD 3000 graphics CPU, and an 128GB SSD. Users will fall for the back-lit keyboard as it provides better tactile feedback than a majority of the ultrabooks out. Worrying about battery life? No sweat. The Folio clocks in an est. 8 hours on moderate use.
