Have you ever been a victim of your notebook’s bad battery life? Maybe you hunted down power plugs at the airport, the bar or even the dentist’s office to gain just a few more minutes of juice. You might have even risked the embarrassment of convincing strangers to unplug their devices so you could recharge your laptop’s dead battery. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Short battery life forces plenty of mobile professionals to jump through bizarre hoops to plug in.
But there’s good news for all you “plug hogs” out there. HP recently announced the Folio13, a 13.3-inch UltrabookTM that weighs only 3.3 pounds and offers more than 9 hours of battery life that won’t leave you crawling on your knees at the coffee shop looking for an outlet. The HP Folio13 is a slim and light travel companion with battery life to last through your full business day.
The Ultrabook’s 9 hours of uninterrupted usage lets road warriors leave the extra laptop batteries and power adapters that were previously travel necessities at home. That means no more buying drinks that you don’t want just so the bartender will let you plug in your laptop, no more hogging plugs in terminals a quarter mile away from your flight and certainly no more awkward conversations with strangers about which of their electronics is the least important.
With the HP Folio13, you can open your mouth wide, say “Ahhh” and tell your dentist to plug that drill back in, because you don’t need extra juice for your computer during this teeth cleaning.
