Intel has never been bashful about the fact that it envisions Ultrabooks selling for less than a grand, and as time goes on, we're starting to see more and more models hit that sub-$1,000 price point. One of the better looking deals out there can be found at Walmart, where you can pick up a new model Hewlett-Packard Folio 13 for $798, which is a little more than $100 cheaper than any of the builds you'll find on HP's own website.

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.

I think HP has made the high  ultrabook price at $ 899, Folio 13  is a solid and high-performance ultrabook on the legs. It looks good but is not a real looker. The Folio 13 is a little heavier than the competition from Asus and Acer. Comfortable keyboard, the device is well suited as a lean office notebook. Only the reflective display could disturb some.


I find HP folio 13 review, it have good information to learn more.
