The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

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.

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.
