The news that we bring you today has a background and not only for this specific product, but applicable to any product And it is that when the product that is reaches a considerable success, it is taken as a reference for the other brands of the competition when it comes to being inspired by it to try to achieve its success as far as possible. This is the case with HP with its new ultrabook of the EliteBook series, specifically we are talking about the Folio 1020 model.
This new HP team has many and above all clear reminiscences of the MacBook Air, a team that clearly has been a best seller for Apple and which HP will have thought worth "copying" to try at least to have part of that success in the business market for which this Elitebook is intended.
The new HP Folio 1020 laptop comes in two variants that slightly differentiate it from the MacBook Air. The first is una standard version that integrates a touch screen with a weight of 1,17 kilos and on the other hand a special edition that manages to lower the weight to 0,99 kilos but does not integrate a touch screen, this means that it would be slightly lighter than the MacBook 11-inch Air.
If we stick to its specifications, it would come standard with 8 GB of RAM and a SSD to the detriment of classic hard drives for storage. However, HP has decided to put a less powerful processor than the one in the MacBook Air and thus prioritize the ventilation and battery life of the equipment over power if the Intel Core M processors had been used.
Finally they also have a fingerprint sensor and another kensington-lock to secure the ultrabook. The price has not yet transpired but you can imagine that seeing the market niche it is aimed at will not be exactly cheap, perhaps even above the MacBook Air.
