What's this? Looks like another Ultrabook
is coming our way. An upcoming ultraportable from HP has apparently made its way into the hands of an Australian blogger, courtesy of the company's wing in that country. The 13.3-inch Folio crams in a 1.4GHz Core i3 or 1.6GHz Core i5 processor, 128GB of solid-state storage and 4GB of RAM (expandable to 8GB), according to the site. HP's also tossing in a backlit keyboard and some ruggedized construction. Those in-the-wild shots also show a 1366 x 768 display, USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, HDMI and Gigabit Ethernet. All in all, this thing is looking mighty solid -- after all, the ASUS Zenbook UX31
and Lenovo IdeaPad U300s
don't have backlit keyboards, nor that robust a selection of ports. Look for it before the end of the year -- in Australia, at least. More information and some glamor shots in the source below.
