HP recently unveiled what it describes as “the industry’s thinnest and lightest business-class notebooks,” namely, two new HP EliteBook Folio 1020 models. Both devices were recently introduced on the official HP website.

The HP EliteBook 1020 and the HP EliteBook 1020 Special Edition are both ultra-thin at 15.7 mm; the Special Edition weighs in at 2.2 pounds based on its use of HP’s exclusive magnesium-lithium alloy and reusable carbon fiber. Both feature what HP calls a “tough, cutting-edge design,” as well and were designed with an emphasis on mobility and include battery life of about nine hours.

As with other EliteBook models, the two units were designed to pass military-grade testing, according to HP, meaning “drops, shocks, and exposure to extremes of temperature and humidity, and high pressure testing.”

Touted as also offering speed and near-silent operation (due to their fanless design), the new notebooks use Intel’s latest Core-MTM processor technology.

Both devices come with HP Client Management Solutions and optional LANDesk4 and Intel vProTM technology, which allow them to be easily added to an enterprise IT environment.

The notebooks also include HP’s exclusive enterprise-class security, including certified Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2/2.06, pre-boot authentication, fingerprint reader and the exclusive HP Sure Start self-healing BIOS, designed to enhance protection of the device, as well as its data and identity.



The HP EliteBook 1020 (optional touchscreen available) and HP EliteBook 1020 SE feature high-resolution 12.5-inch diagonal Quad HD display screens and are named as the first EliteBooks to include HP’s newly designed Premium Keyboard, which is said to provide “optimized, consistent key response based on user testing and feedback.”

Other features include a 720p webcam, front-facing speakers featuring HD Audio with DTS Studio Sound and HP Noise Reduction Software.

The new models joined HP’s extensive EliteBook assortment.

The HP EliteBook 1020 is priced at around $1,249, while the Special Edition is $1,753. Both units are available now.

  1. I’m a fan of HP Laptops, this statement made me reaffirm my faith- the two units were designed to pass military-grade testing, according to HP, meaning “drops, shocks, and exposure to extremes of temperature and humidity, and high pressure testing.” That doesn’t mean i would put my Laptop to test when i purchase one.

  2. Not really a fan of thin notebooks because the size is still the same. If I want to carry something light, I just bring a notebook along or I have a large, sturdy laptop.
