HP Folio 13-1000ea Ultrabook Available Exclusively at Currys and PC World

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 20, 2012) - Currys and PC World have exclusively teamed up with HP to launch the new HP Folio 13-1000ea Ultrabook. Available to buy from Currys and PC World - experts in laptop computing - exclusively for the next three months in-store and online, the HP Folio 13-1000ea is one of the new highly responsive Ultrabooks which are less than an inch thick and enjoy a fast boot up time.

Priced at £899.99 and weighing less than 1.5kg, the Folio13-1000ea is just 18mm thick, and with a five hour battery life makes for perfect light-weight portable computing.

The 13.3" HD LED screen, which coupled with the Intel HD 3000 graphics and built-in Altec Lansing speakers, provides a fantastic and immersive audio visual experience whether surfing the web or watching the latest Hollywood blockbuster.

The new Folio 13-1000ea has a powerful 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i5-2467M processor and 4GB of RAM that makes for great power and performance, you can therefore be sure that multi-tasking will be made fast and easy, added to this there is a 128GB SSD hard drive for your storage needs. The Solid State Drive (SSD) is a great addition to the new HP Folio 13-1000ea as it accesses data faster, consumes less power, provides a longer battery life, produces less heat and is far quieter than a hard disk drive (HDD).

Ultra-thin and yet stacked with features, the Folio 13-1000ea has an impressive array of connection options with USB 2.0 and 3.0, WiFi, Bluetooth and Gigabit Ethernet. It's also easy to connect to other multi-media devices with full size HDMI, 3.5mm jack ports and a multi-format digital media card reader.

Mark Slater, Category Director for Computing at Currys and PC World, comments: "The next generation of laptop computing has arrived in store at Currys and PC World. We are expecting the new category of Ultrabooks, in particular the HP Folio 13-1000ea, to become one of our best-selling range of computing products."
