Late last year, HP announced the awkwardly named EliteBook Folio 1020. Despite that clunky moniker, the Folio 1020 was one of the nicer laptops we've seen HP produce in a while — thinner and lighter than the MacBook Air, but with a higher-resolution screen (not to mention a host of "business friendly" features like a fingerprint security reader and military-grade shock protection).
That's all well and good, but the original model definitely hewed closely to the MacBook Air's stylings, which is why we're excited about this new model that HP just announced. It's basically the same as the original model but comes in this pretty dope color combo that HP calls "ash silver and copper." I call it black, and it looks pretty great. It also comes with Bang & Olufsen speakers, which means this will almost certainly sound better than your average laptop — but they're still laptop speakers, so don't get your hopes up too high. Focus on that ash silver.
There's no word on price or release date yet, so just hang tight, okay?
