I am an experienced graphic designer (Photoshop / Dreamweaver / In Design) and full-time internet retailer shipping about 100 $200+ orders daily, so I guess you could say I am a power-consumer from both sides of the curtain. I am on my machine(s) at least 8-12 work related hours / day updating my web site(s), communicating with customers and vendors and researching a wide variety of products and issues related to my business. Additionally, I get about all my news online and spend more time than average in social networking media promoting my business.

I own several (currently HP) desktop machines, as a small business owner with a handful of employees I am also my own IT guy, chief cook and bottle-washer, and have been so since 1996. I compare / purchase several computers annually as I personally like everyone to have the latest and greatest, not only is it fun but I can rationalize it as giving my company the edge over my competitors, and can also depreciate it on my taxes so it costs me a lot less to upgrade than the home user. Besides, communication is the key to a successful dot-com, we answer our inquiries and other customer service communications darn near real-time. I'm on my third or fourth Android device having migrated from Blackberry a few years back. I mention all this so you know where I'm coming from ...

This whole thing started when I got frustrated with my Kindle Fire's virtual keyboard, surfing and replying to emails. I have been doing a lot of that on my Samsung Stratosphere but being an old fart my vision isn't what it used to be and wanted a bigger screen.

Pros: It's very light compared to the normal 6+ lb laptops I usually use, traveling with it is a pleasure! Performance is decent considering its size and it has so many ports compared to other ultrabooks. It has an Ethernet port! That's a big deal for me as hotel wi-fi networks are usually really bad. Almost no other ultrabook has that, same with a regular sized HDMI port. Sure you could get a different computer and carry ethernet/hdmi adapters with you but carrying around adapters defeats the purpose of having an ultrabook!

Cons: The screen's color contrast is a bit washed out and can not be adjusted. However this is only a minor annoyance to me and the screen is plenty bright.

Overall: I bought this and the Toshiba Portege Z835 at the same time and used both side by side for a few days. The HP won hands down. There are other ultrabooks but they all are missing something; ethernet, hdmi, backlit keyboard... As of early 2012 this is the best ultrabook on the market.

I have had this laptop for about one month and so far so good. I use it for college and it is great for portability and its battery lasts all day. I have gotten 8.0 hours on the battery with brightness fairly low using wifi (Netflix and browsing). I like the USB 3.0 with an external HDD because it is really fast transfer. The only thing with it is that the SSD is only 128gb but with the recovery partition plus operating system there is only about 70 gigs for the user. I got a 32 gig class 10 SD card to get some extra space. Some people have tons of music and videos on their computer so this laptop may not be for you but I have very little media on mine and doubt that it will be a problem. The SSD makes booting, loading, copying and installing programs really fast. The computer boots up to a usable state in about 18 seconds and all hardware is very good. Keyboard and trackpad are very good. Backlight on the keyboard is awesome however not as cool in the white color than my previous HP ENVY with a red backlit keyboard.

I have looked and compared portege, u400, zenbook, aspire and after weighing in the price and specs, I went ahead and bought the Folio 13. I read a lot of reviews in cnet, engadget, etc and Folio always had excellent reviews. I also went to bestbuy to check out for myself. My second choice was zenbook but it was too pricey for me. Here is a list of pros and cons for these ultra notebooks:

portege - build quality is poor. the screen bends like paper and wiggles. but you get ssd, i5, backlit key
u400 - you get a dvd drive which is nice. but no sd card an backlit key and the keyboard is small. build quality is awesome though.
aspire - plasticky and not fast, not ssd, but cheap for $800
zebook - would have been perfect but too pricey. no ethernet port

I wanted to check out also the samsung 7, it talks about expresscache. but pricey as well.

With HP Folio, for $850, you get SSD, USB 3.0, backlit key, and an i5 core. Seriously, the SSD costs about $140 in itself and it makes your computing a lot faster. You get a lot of ports and keyboard is really nice. Battery is super.

The only cons on the Folio, is that my legs get warm and the right click button malfunctions sometimes, it responds as left button. Screen is average...

I have actually starting taking this laptop on my trips rather than my MacBook Air. I still use my MacBook Air but sometimes there are things I need a windows machine, which is mostly due to some work reasons. The battery life is great, sure I have to plug it in but 99% of the time that I use the machine I unplug it, take it with me to move around the house, go to work or go to a meeting without bringing my power cord.

The SSD hard drive on this machine is nice. It boots fast, it surfs the web fast. I open the lid on the laptop, hit the power button, login, load up iTunes and download what I need over wireless and sync to my iPod, or check my email or a document and close the lid in must a matter of a couple minutes.

I have also found myself using the touchpad on this machine more than an external mouse. It allows for two finger scrolling, which I originally used on my MacAir and found that I can do the same thing on the Folio - VERY HANDY.

At times I forget this laptop has light-up keys. I am sitting in the dark and can't see the keys and remember that I can hit "F5" to turn on the LED lit keys, again VERY HANDY.

This laptop is fast and light and so many of it's features are "Handy" which makes it more productive than any other laptop I have used for daily activities.

MARCH 7 2012:
I have a MacBook Air 13.3 with an i5 processor, it is very nice machine. I got this machine, the HP Folio 13, because I wanted a Windows laptop that was very portable AND usable. I am not going to do a 1 to 1 comparison between this and the MacBook Air 13 because I am sure someone else already has. Over the years I have used a few windows based "mini's" and while they are portable they are not quite usable.
