Third Generation Intel® Core processors are built for business. Whether it’s Core i5 dual-core processors, you’ll enjoy control, security, and remote manageability. These ultra-low voltage processors are available at a price that makes sense. At just ¾ -inch thin (18.95 mm), it’s our thinnest EliteBook yet. The HP EliteBook Folio gives you a 14-inch (355.6 mm) diagonal display with all the mobility you need. Whether you’re working in the office or on the go, the workday just got a whole lot lighter—and more efficient. Thanks to built-in VGA, DisplayPort, Ethernet, and three USB 3.0 ports, you can say goodbye to a bagful of dongles.
Maintenance Friendly Construction
One thing is certain: HP has transferred the materials, the quality requirements and the stability of the grown up EliteBook siblings into the thin format, the concessions are acceptable. Because of that the weight is slightly higher compared to consumer ultrabooks. The base unit is not completely torsion-free as with an aluminum unibody. By grasping the right and left sides with both hands the base can be limitedly twisted. Nevertheless the chassis reaches a very good stability level when measured against the excellent maintenance capabilities. Noticeable with the Folio 9470m is its almost complete slight rubber coating. This soft-touch surface enables a good grip and prevents fingerprints.
Access the Internet, corporate networks, and email in more places with optional integrated HP Mobile Broadband featuring 3G and 4G LTE. Take business further with consistent global configurations that allow for product standardization. Keep working even in dimly lit rooms or on red-eye flights, thanks to a full-sized, backlit keyboard.
With HP Premier Image, the full set of EliteBook business software and anti-virus protection are automatically included. You’re protected at every layer with HP Client Security. HP BIOS Vault keeps you running with enhanced protection against virus attacks.
With enterprise docking capabilities, you can easily connect with a display, keyboard, mouse, additional ports, or printer when at the office, without the hassle of USB connections. Power through projects without worrying about recharging. The battery isn’t integrated so you can swap it out yourself. Plus, you can easily attach a slice battery and extend power for hours and hours.
Keyboard and Touchpad
At about 1.3 mm, the chiclet-type keyboard features only slightly less key travel than a “standard” notebook at 1.5 mm, but it certainly feels like even less. The keys are flat textured plastic with slightly below average feedback. The stop at the end of the key stroke is rather abrupt, but the noticeable keyboard flex lessens the perceived harshness. The rather large clickpad allows the fingers to glide easily and offers simple touch-gesture support (for example, scrolling with two fingers) as well.
What Does Refurbished Mean?
Refurbished products are laptops in excellent condition that have been returned to an authorized dealer, reconditioned and repackaged. Most often, these are items that have been professionally inspected and repaired or reset by the manufacturer. As such, a refurbished item will work just as a brand new one would, only it may show minor signs of wear. Refurbished items may also come in special packaging.
