Dec 31, 12 HP Elite BookFolio 9470 review

Hewlett Packard introduced Five ultra notebooks, and remarkably all of them had quick boot time with long standing battery backup and perfect design appeal. The Elite BookFolio 9470 is one among the kind, that which is sleek weighing lot less for a business notebook. The IT guys are going love it for its favorable battery life, comfortable keyboard and  multi port options.

Look & Feel

The Elite BookFolio 9470 , like its predecessors – preserves the business appeal in it and looks great for a HP product. The aluminum colored device sports a black bordered 14inch screen and chicklet keyboard that give it a professional look. The rubbery coat on the outside offers a firm hold to carry around. The Elite Book keyboards have always come out classy and this time it has got lot better being cushier.

Display & Sound

The matte finished display is clear and elegant at resolution of 1,366 x 768, a little low for its pricing. The 1080P should have done well! As for the sounds, this is not the device that gets it out loud.


The display is 14inch and comes packed with a Intel core i5 Processor. To give it a overall power boost, it has a 8GB of RAM. The battery can provide a solid power backup for 6.5 hours. The machine takes only 11 seconds to come to life with most of the apps opening swift and smooth, launching new applications is also real quick.

Hewlett Packard has a intergrated HD 4000 graphics solution. As for the software, you can choose to downgrade to Windows 7 or use the existing Windows 8 in the system. The face recognition, password vault, pre-boot authentication and spare key are some of the notable features.

Wrap Up

The Folio 9470 is a best-fit IT guys and business people to perform all challenging activities were other competitors will lag behind. No wonder to why, it should be well received by the IT department professionals. The only drawback is that it doesn’t come with a touch capacitive screen.
