Performance to get the job done

The HP EliteBook Folio handles high-performance requirements with a 6th Gen Intel® Core™ processor,6 PCle SSDs, 8GB of memory, and long battery life.


Clear, sharp vivid display

Choose a crystal-clear UHD display3 with four times more pixels than FHD displays for color critical applications, or an FHD touch display3 for outstanding visual and touch interactivity.

Extreme tests for extreme dependability7

The HP EliteBook Folio has passed MIL-STD 810G tests7. Add another 120,000 hours
of our own testing and end-to-end diagnostics, and you get confidence built right in.


We simulated the vibrations of 1000 miles of ground transportation and jolted the laptop in six directions for a total of 18 mechanical shocks.


Dust Test

Our laptop was dusted with Arizona road dust for six hours while being operated to ensure components won't fail in harsh environments.

Dust Test

Drop Test

We made 26 drops from 30 inches onto every side, angle and edge onto 2 inches of plywood over steel and concrete to ensure toughness.

Drop Test


We subject the laptop to a simulated altitude pressure of 15,000 feet. Then, it is exposed to a temperature change of more than 212° Fahrenheit.
