Building on the success of the HP Folio Ultrabook that straddles the consumer and professional line, HP has embraced the business Ultrabook with the new HP Elitebook Folio 9470m.
The HP EliteBook Folio 9470m is an attractive jump up from the new HP Elitebook 2170p’s 11 inch display, without sacrificing the size and weight. The Elitebook Folio 9470m is 3.5 pounds.
Business travelers will appreciate the 18.95 mm thick frame, long battery life thanks to an optional slice battery and backlit keyboard, as well as the ability to dock the Elitebook Folio in the office to quickly connect to external monitors and accessories.
Unlike many ultraportables and ultrabooks, the Elitebook Folio includes a full complement of ports including, three USB 3.0 ports, DisplayPort, Ethernet and VGA. The EliteBook Folio also comes with an option for 3G and 4G LTE embedded connectivity.
The EliteBook Folio 9470m will use the latest Intel 3rd generation processors and is capable of handling up to 16GB of RAM. HP offers a variety of storage options including the ability to install a Flash Cache for faster boots and access to often used programs.
The Elitebook Folio won’t be sold on the shelves of Best Buy when it is released in October, as it is aimed at companies who place a high value on the reliability of notebooks. Consumers who need a notebook that can last four years of college would be wise to look into the EliteBook Folio when it launches.
