13.5-Inch Windows On ARM Convertible HP Elite Folio In Store

The most expensive Windows On ARM computer yet is now in store after HP launched the HP Elite Folio in the US: https://www.hp.com/us-en/shop/pdp/hp-elite-folio-135-inch-2-in-1-notebook-pc

It was originally supposed to be available with optional 5G, but for now there's only two 4G options, with choices between 8GB and 16GB of RAM.

The processor is a 3.0 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen2 processor, while storage is 256GB of NVMe SSD storage.

And despite the large 13.5-inch screen, HP only equipped it with a 1920 x 1080 resolution display. But at least it has Gorilla Glass 5 for protection. Although, the chance of wrecking the display is small, considering that the display doesn't really detach like it does on a tablet.

Instead it's shaped like a laptop but covered with a leather cover that can also swivel the screen over the keyboard, into tablet mode.

So that's one of the highlights of sorts. Others are Wi-Fi 6, an included digitizer pen, backlit keyboard, and Bang & Olufsen speakers.

But there's still no getting around the fact that the HP Elite Folio is expensive beyond belief.
