HP Folio 13 Pops Up at Walmart for $798
The HP Folio 13-1029wm on Walmart's website boasts the following specs:
- 13.3-inch HD BrightView LED-backlit display
- Intel Core i3 2367M processor (1.4GHz, 3MB L3 cache)
- Intel HD Graphics 3000
- 4GB DDR3 RAM
- 128GB solid state drive
- 10/100/1000 GbE LAN; 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi
- Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
It also features Bluetooth support, an HD webcam with built-in microphone, 2-in-1 memory card reader, a pair of USB 2.0 ports, a single USB 3.0 port, headphone/microphone combo jack, HDMI port, and a 6-cell battery good for up to 9 hours of battery life.
Not a bad setup for a general purpose machine, and the reason it's $100 cheaper than the entry-level configuration on HP's website is because Walmart's SKU sports a downgraded Core i3 2367M processor instead of the Core i5 2467M that comes standard. Otherwise, there's no real difference between Walmart's $798 model and HP's $899.99 baseline configuration.
