In this video recorded at the recent HP Global Influencer Summit in Shanghai, I spoke to HP product manager. Kathy Nielson about the HP EliteBook Folio. This is a new Ultrabook, designed to bridge the gap between consumer and business laptops. HP is banking on the success of Intel’s Ultrabook design to woo business users. Intel is making Ultrabooks its top priority for 2012.
With the EliteBook Folio 9470m, due to ship in October. HP hopes the Ultrabook laptop will appeal to corporate IT departments and consumers. The device supports legacy connectivity such as a VGA video port and USB connections. HP says it offers nine hours of battery life, but this can be upped to 20 hours using an extended battery.
