There’s no mucking around with this HP ultrabook. Designed for enterprise use, it’s built to last and to keep your data secure.
A spill-proof backlit keyboard, fingerprint reader and integrated Smart Card reader give it solid protection against the rigours of living in the modern world. While onboard data encryption, a full suite of HP’s enterprise-class data recovery software and services, plus a BIOS that will resume normal operation after corruption add to its rugged appeal.
We called it in for a test based more on its handsome good looks. Too often, today, ultrabooks skimp on durability, and the Folio 1040 G1 caught our eye with its attention to both substance and style.
It’s a wonderful machine to work on, its sharp yet thin 14-inch screen being available in either HD or FHS (which adds 2mm to the screen’s depth). An i5-4300U at 1.9GHz and a 128 SSD are standard, as is a 6-cell battery. It’s also got a generous 3-year onsite warranty.
