HP's gorgeous EliteBook Folio takes on the MacBook on Laptop Mag and wins

HP has the EliteBook Folio Windows laptop, which is billed as the thinnest and lightest ultrabook in the world, but is it as good as Apple's renown MacBook? Our friends at Laptop Mag took some time to find out. After going through multiple rounds of head-to-head combat, there's not a whole lot between the two laptops as they're clearly both stellar devices but the team reached the conclusion that HP comes out on top.

"You really can't go wrong with either of these premium ultraportables. We recommend you get the 1080p EliteBook Folio if you're on a budget or you need business-friendly features. Splurge on the MacBook if you want a better starting display and more time between charges."

The Folio boasts things like an extra port plus Thunderbolt 3, a more traditional-like keyboard, UHD screen (if you can afford the option), as well as the vast array of options available when customizing your order. While the MacBook didn't lose out by much (they both achieved the same score), the EliteBook Folio won due to the extra port for business users and a more traditional feeling keyboard.
