Elite Folio highlights the premium qualities of HP’s Elite lineup; comprising a 3:2 aspect ratio, an always-charged garaged pen, magnesium chassis, and compact design. Folio design incorporates an articulating touch-display that “pulls forward” and transitions from laptop to an “up-right” tablet for viewing and “lay-flat” tablet for writing and drawing.

  • We expect users to transform between modes many times a day from notebook to a tablet with pen usage at times. We needed to create an elegant design that takes advantage of the friendlier, human computer interaction of the pen, while maintaining excellent core functions of the laptop around the keyboard.

  • The essence of Elite Folio is rethinking what a computer should be. We used recycled magnesium for the enclosure, and wrapped it in vegan leather to evoke the feel of a traditional paper notebook. The leather doubles as the hinge function.

  • The design of the pull-forward folio gives the user a more flexible, more personable computer, that adapts from laptop to tablet more conveniently. Traditional laptop/tablet convertibles use a 360 hinge that puts the keyboard on the back in tablet mode. With Elite Folio, the keys are protected under the screen.
