HP introduced several new laptops today but the one that pops out a bit is the EliteBook Folio 1020, a new 12.5" business laptop with a passive cooling solution.
The device features Intel's Core M processor series, it has a magnesium-lithium alloy and reusable carbon fiber to achieve a weight of only 1kg and has a thickness of 15.7mm.
Most of the specifications are unknown but we do know that there will be a version with a 1920 x 1080 pixels screen and one with a 2560 x 1440 pixels screen.
The Folio 1020 arrives in early 2015 but pricing is still unknown.
Focus on security and reliability
The HP EliteBook 1020 and the ultra-lightweight HP EliteBook 1020 SE are designed with enterprise mobility in mind, with up to 9 hours of battery life to power a full work day. Like the rest of the EliteBook family, these are designed to pass military-grade (MIL-STD 810G) testing -- drops, shocks, and exposure to extremes of temperature and humidity, and high pressure testing. These notebooks also deliver both speed and near silent operation with a fanless design and solid state storage, supported by latest Intel® Core-M™ processor technology.
Both devices come with HP Client Management Solutions and optional LANDesk and Intel® vPro™ technology to easily integrate and deploy into an enterprise IT environment. The notebooks include HP's exclusive enterprise-class security, including certified Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2/2.0, pre-boot authentication, fingerprint reader and the exclusive HP Sure Start self-healing BIOS to help better protect your device, data and identity.
The HP EliteBook 1020 with optional touchscreen and HP EliteBook 1020 SE offer brilliant clarity on a high resolution 12.5-inch diagonal Quad HD (QHD) display, and are the first EliteBooks to come with the HP Premium Keyboard, a newly designed keyboard that provides optimized, consistent key response based on user testing and feedback. The 720p webcam, front firing speakers featuring HD Audio with DTS Studio Sound™ and HP Noise Reduction Software, make web conferences and collaboration on-the-go more productive with a difference you can hear.
