Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

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.
