HP's EliteBook Folio G1 packs 4K into a 12.5-inch screen
I love the 12 inch MacBook, but it's not for everyone.
Sometimes you just need to run Windows, or you need a touchscreen, or you want more than one port on a laptop.
So HP has cooked up something that looks and feels a lot like the 12 inch MacBook, but it's built for professional Windows users.
And its slick Looking enough that you can feel comfortable using it.
It's called the HP EliteBook Folio G1, which is kind of a mouthful of a name.
But like the MacBook it uses Intel's latest Core M Series processors, but unlike the MacBook, HP includes the fastest version, the Core M7 For as little as 999.
Crank it up to about 1,700 bucks like the one I have here and you get a full 4k resolution touchscreen and a big 512 gigs of storage.
The keyboard is great, especially compared to the super shallow one on the Macbook.
But the hinge, even though it folds back a full 180 degrees, It's got a little too much play for my tastes.
One final thing to keep in mind.
I also tested a regular HD screen version.
That ran for about six and a half hours.
The 4K screen kills your battery, and that one ran for about two hours less.
