HP's EliteBook Folio 9470m is a well built, good looking and very comfortable to use Ultrabook, and it's also very fast. All of that good stuff comes at a high price that's perhaps typical of machines aimed at high-end business users....

Over the past few years our expectations of what our laptops are capable of have changed dramatically. Not all that long ago we were content with simply having a reasonably fast portable computer that could help us get our work done and stay in...

The HP EliteBook Folio 9470m falls into the same trap as so many other laptops: it has good processing power, the body is well built and the battery life is more than sufficient, but the screen is of such terrible quality (despite its matte surface) that...

Whenever I ask a vendor what the resolution of the notebook they're releasing is, the reply of "1366x768" is always tinged with either sheepishness or defiance. I'm reasonably certain that somewhere in the bowels of the HPs and Dells of the world there's...

The HP EliteBook Folio 9470m, like the Folio 13 before it, offers a nice balance of portability and power with long battery life. There are some significant drawbacks, the biggest one being the display. Our $1,349 base configuration isn't the only one...

Pleasingly thin and light, the HP Elitebook Folio 9470m delivers several business-friendly extras, and its solid-state drive makes it speedy on many tasks. But it's a bit short on storage and system memory, and it's pricey for a 14-inch...

Is it possible to ship a late-model laptop with Windows 8 as a preload (even if it's only an option along with Windows 7) and not include a touchscreen? Given that this HP Ultrabook is aimed mainly at business-class users, the answer appears to be...

HP extends its EliteBook line with a solid ultrabook. The 9470m is sleek and light, with a removable battery and plenty of ports. Windows 8 is an option, but without a touch screen, execs may prefer to stick with Win 7....

On paper the 14-inch EliteBook Folio 9470m offers a lot of notebook for a lot of money. With the case, input devices, ports, performance and runtime HP fulfills the high expectations that come with a price of 1,550 Euros. For this money you can almost...

The HP Elitebook Folio 9470m does a serviceable job at being a good thin all-around Windows 8 business laptop, but it doesn't rise from the pack, and it doesn't take any...

Although a little heavy for an ultrabook, the EliteBook Folio 9470m redeems itself with a removable battery and desktop dock support, plus other features to appeal to enterprise buyers. However, the lack of a touchscreen means that it is not ideal for...

The HP EliteBook Folio 9470m is a sturdy, business-friendly Ultrabook that lasts a long time on a charge, but we'd like to see a better display and webcam at this...

The HP Elitebook Folio 9470m is one of the first Windows 8 corporate notebooks on the market. On one hand, it's a speedy and slim ultrabook, on the other, you'll probably want to "downgrade" to Windows 7 once you take it out of the...

International Review By Chip.de on 80

Das HP EliteBook Folio 9470m erreicht im Test eine lange Akkulaufzeit bis 7 Stunden, und da es nur 1,6 kg auf die Waage bringt, sichert sich das 14-Zoll-Ultrabook derzeit die beste Mobilitätswertung. Die Performance stimmt, aber das Display überzeugt...

Przyznam się szczerze, że ciężko jednoznacznie ocenić HP Elitebook Folio 9470m. Urządzenie jest świetnie wykonane, wszystkie elementy są znakomicie spasowane, nic nie trzeszczy i nie skrzypi. Zarówno waga jak i wielkość powoduje, że ultrabook od HP jest...

Con EliteBook Folio 9470M HP propone un sistema caratterizzato anzitutto da una elevata trasportabilità, frutto di spessore e peso molto contenuti. Caratteristiche che comunque non impongono compromessi dal punto di vista della costruzione, risultata...

Как известно, первое впечатление обманчиво. Однако иной раз эта, казалось бы, аксиома дает слабину. Взять, например, ультрабук HP Elitebook Folio 9470m, о котором сегодня пойдет речь. Такое чувство, что при его разработке инженеры HP все же открыли...

По сути, HP EliteBook Folio 9470m представляет собой стандартную 14-дюймовую корпоративную модель хорошего уровня, со всеми присущими ей возможностями и функциями. Только на 500-800 граммов легче. Вероятно, с ультрабуками начинать надо было именно с...
