Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great machine - thin & light yet solid
About Me Tech Savvy
Great machine. Solid feel while still thin and (relatively) light. Some netbooks may be smaller and lighter, but this is an i5 128 GB SSD full bore business machine. Fast sleep and start up modes, resulting in good battery life. As others have accurately commented, the screen could use an anti-reflective surface and the touchpad buttons are too stiff. Fan does seem to run constantly and is not silent, but not really noticeable in normal use. Haven't tried to use it for gaming, but for all around business use and travel, this is close to a perfect machine.
I would buy this product again.

Great Portable Laptop
Great portable laptop!
from New York
Thin and light weight is what I was searching for. This is perfect
Would buy again.
from Nashville, TN
Great product for much better price than most Ultrabooks. Boots up very quickly. Only issue is that when the laptop is on fabric, the fan has to work a little extra and make a little more noise.
from Lexington, KY
I bought HP Folio 13 for personal use. It is fast, comfortable, light. However, it is kind of noisy. I also feel the battery life is getting worse in an alarming rate.
For the price, can't be beat
About Me Tech Savvy, Writer
Not the best screen perhaps, but very good for the money. A great little carry around unit. Does what I need it to do and the keyboard is excellent. For the Price it's five stars.
So far everything works great. The trackpad works a bit differently, so took a little getting used to. If you rest your finger from your left hand on the mouse button, the pad doesn't follow your other finger with the pointer. Good battery life. Love it!
