Mobility is the ultimate competitive edge in today’s fast-paced business world, and the ability to work whenever you want from any location has become essential.
With this in mind, the new HP EliteBook Folio 1020 from distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC) is the definitive companion for the executive on the move. This compact, 12-inch Ultrabook includes an award-winning design, a thin and lightweight form factor and high-end specifications (specs), making it ideal for businesses at any location and altitude.

“For travellers who spend a lot of time on aeroplanes, working on the move can be challenging. Flights are often cramped, there is no space on your lap for a notebook, your legs are tilted at odd angles and the tray table is far too small to hold your machine. The HP EliteBook Folio 1020 solves this challenge perfectly. It fits neatly on the tray table, with a weight starting at just one kilogram, so you can work from practically anywhere with ease. It also features impressive business-class specs, and is available in touchscreen and standard models, allowing you to customise your experience to suit your needs,” says Francois van Wijk, HP Computing Business Unit Manager at DCC.

This slim, stylish Ultrabook measures just 15.7mm thin, and is crafted from forged magnesium-lithium alloy and carbon fibre to handle the bumps and knocks of day-to-day travel. It features a 12.5-inch anti-glare display, the very latest Intel Core M processors, lightning fast Solid State Drive (SSD) storage, and a fan-less design to reduce moving parts and noise. With up to nine hours of battery life, users can work through all but the longest international flights without outlet power, while the full sized, backlit and spill resistant keyboard allow you to complete any task with ease in any lighting.

A suite of advanced audio and visual features enable you to connect and collaborate across the globe, with a High Definition (HD) Web cam, Immersive DTS Studio Sound, a dual-array microphone and noise reduction software. In addition, a range of connectivity and port options, including wireless, USB 3.0, MicroSD, HDMI and Miracast allow you to connect with ease. In addition, users have access to leading support and service offerings to ensure technical glitches can be resolved in the shortest time possible.

“A range of coordinated business accessories, including a wireless mouse, stylish travel case and additional monitor, is available to help users upgrade and enhance their custom computing experience,” concludes van Wijk.

The HP EliteBook Folio 1020 is available immediately from resellers for a recommended retail price of R29 000.00 (QHD touch screen) and R20 000.00 (standard monitor). All pricing is inclusive of VAT and is subject to the Rate of Exchange (RoE).
