HP unwraps Ultrabook

Biz-centric box for the curve-averse

HP Folio 13

HP will release its first Ultrabook next month, though it will pitch the product at business rather than consumers.

The HP Folio 13 is an 18mm-thick, 1.5kg 13.3in machine with a 128GB SSD and a choice of Intel Core i Sandy Bridge processors.

Not exactly Apple MacBook Air or Acer Aspire S3 svelte, is it?

The keyboard is backlit, and it has oth Ethernet and USB 3.0 ports. Extra ports will be available through an optional docking module. It'll ship with Windows 7 Pro.
