HP EliteBook Folio 14” Laptop
At less than four pounds, this lightweight HP laptop provides a portable means to browse the internet or stream online content when you’re wandering the Great Wide Open.
The laptop’s impressive 8GB of system memory ensures you can use the internet while simultaneously streaming songs or gossiping with the motherboard. Swap between programs with minimal lag and swift load times that come courtesy of a powerful Intel Core i7 processor.
Stream shows, catch the latest movie trailers, or explore an online video game’s vivid fantasyland in crisp, clear detail. Saturated with more than 1 million pixels, the display produces image quality similar to what you’d see on an HDTV with 720p HD resolution. Such sharpness and clarity also make the text on your favorite news and social-media sites clear and easy to read.
USB 3.0 ports, of which this model has three, transfer content up to 10 times faster than a traditional USB 2.0 port. That means documents, songs, and even massive video files will find a cozy place on your hard drive in no time at all.

When iconic company HP was born in 1939, it was not in a gleaming laboratory or during a late-night study session at a prestigious university. It was in a 12’x18’ garage that contained only a workbench and a used drill press. University friends Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard sold audio equipment to Disney (which used them during Fantasia production) and became HP soon after. Their humble garage is now marked with a plaque bearing the title “Birthplace of Silicon Valley.”
HP’s innovations laid the groundwork for the Valley’s surge in technological advances. Between the creation of the first handheld computer, which connected to printers and cassette drives, and development of speedier 64-bit processing technology currently used by brands like Apple and Microsoft, HP cemented itself as an architect of current tech trends like the tablet and smartphone. It’s a community-conscious company, too; HP has donated to charity since 1940 and offers free recycling for all electronics, regardless of brand, at Staples.
