HP Folio ultrabook front
HP has lifted the lid on its first ultrabook device, the HP Folio 13, which will go on sale early in 2012.
The 13-inch laptop, announced on Tuesday, is the first device from the manufacturer in the ultrabook category. Intel, which is putting its weight behind the form factor, first outlined an ultrabook in May as a ultra-thin and light device with "tablet-like" features.
The Folio will be priced at around £849 when it launches in the UK in "the beginning of February" 2012, HP said. It is scheduled to arrive in the US first, on 7 December.
It is aimed at business professionals on the move, HP said.
"With all-day battery life, users will no longer be saddled with carrying power adapters to charge their notebook, while a wide array of ports eliminates the need to carry cumbersome dongles," the company said in its announcement.
