HP EliteBook Folio G1 review: A slim business laptop you'll want to show off

"Bettina Wampler" (2020-03-23)


night.jpgid="cnetReview" section="rvwBody" data-component="indepthReview"> Ring's $249 (£195, AU$330 converted) Floodlight Cam is a definite improvement over your typical outdoor security light. In addition to being equipped with two LEDs, this Wi-Fi device also comes with an integrated 1080p HD security camera. Sign up for motion alerts in the related Ring app, where you can also set activity zones, create schedules and control the built-in 110-decibel siren. Starting at $3 per month, you can view saved video history on a contract-free basis.

id="cnetReview" section="rvwBody" data-component="indepthReview"> Smart doorbells are an entirely new breed of buzzer. Part door chime and part security camera, these hybrid devices alert you to activity whether you're home or away. Ring's $249 premium smart buzzer, the Video Doorbell Pro, is the latest model I've gotten my hands on (£195/AU$325, converted).  

Ring has a ton of smart-home partners in the works, but none of them work with the Floodlight Cam today.
While these limitations make Ring's clever floodlight-security camera hybrid slightly less recommendable, it's still well worth your consideration.

class="cnetReview row" section=""> ED I T O R S ' C H O I C E Dec 2019 With premium laptops and two-in-ones like the 13-inch HP Spectre x360, it's almost a given that the newest model will be smaller and thinner than its predecessor. I have to say, though, when I saw the old and new x360 side by side, the size difference was shocking. The updated design eliminates almost all of the top and bottom bezels -- the forehead and chin -- allowing it to greatly reduce the overall footprint of something that was already pretty small to begin with. It looks amazing. 

The detachable mobile workstation doesn't excite me quite as much when I first saw it -- I really thought it had a 10-bit panel -- but it's still a great solution for a select group, especially heavy users of Adobe Creative Cloud applications. People who need a full Adobe RGB gamut coverage and hardware color profiling; who want excellent pressure sensitivity and feel for digital brushwork; and who need a workstation graphics processor to either run certified applications along with workstation-class security, or enable 10-bit color support in applications like Photoshop. And who can afford all of the above. Some limitations, though, may narrow that club a little further.

Memory can not be upgraded post purchase
What's more, even at a smaller size, the x360 running a 10th-gen Intel Core i7 managed to handily outperform the last-gen model running a similar configuration with an Intel eighth-gen CPU. It also has a battery that kept it running for more than 10 hours in our tests. Combined with other helpful features and a refined design, the 2019 HP Spectre x360 13 is our current top premium two-in-one. 

Enter Whirlpool, which recently started selling gold-tinted, "Sunset Bronze" refrigerators, including the WRSA88FIHN side-by-side fridge. At a retail price of about $1,900, it's a fairly basic upper-midrange model with a distinctive design, and while it wasn't as strong a performer as other side-by-side models I've tested, it still offers enough to serve as a tempting pick for design-minded kitchens.

Sarah Tew/CNET Both of the Folio G1 systems stick with USB-C only, but unlike the MacBook, they include two ports (both on the right side), so you can easily keep the power connected while also using a USB accessory. Still, bodog to even use a simple USB key, you'll need a sold-separately USB-A to USB-C adapter, which usually costs around $20.

As for latency, that's application dependent. It feels instantaneous in applications with fast brush algorithms. Then there's Photoshop, which has unusable lag on complex brushes, no matter what hardware you throw at it. The stylus responds to tilt well, too; I admit I never got to testing rotation, but it should work fine as well. 

Joshua Goldman/CNET More than just good looks
Like last year's model, the new x360 has angular gem-cut edges and cutaway corners that help it stand out from other premium ultraportables, but also improve functionality. The cutaway corners on the back edge are where you'll find the power button and one of the laptop's two USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports. Since it charges via USB-C, the angled port allows you to charge the x360 while keeping the cord out of the way for using a mouse, for example. 

For this review, we tested two different configurations, both built via HP's system configurator. One worked out to $1,412, Casino with a Core m7, 256GB SSD, 8GB of RAM and a full-HD non-touch display. The other was a higher-end configuration, with the same CPU and RAM, but a big 512GB SSD and a 3,840x2,160 4K touchscreen display, which at the time of this review cost $1,737. Note that prices for custom-configured PCs can often change, as can the list of available components.
