Thin at 0.75" and weighing 3.56 lb, the 14" EliteBook Folio 9480m Notebook from HP is built with an ultra slim profile and an all metal design. It is powered by a 2.1 GHz Intel Core i7-4600U Dual-Core processor, allowing you to run multiple applications simultaneously. The processor also features a burst speed of up to 3.3 GHz and the system's 8GB of 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM not only allows efficient multitasking, but also allows the computer to quickly access frequently-used files and programs.
The 14" SVA anti-glare display features an HD+ 1600 x 900 screen resolution, LED-backlighting, a 16:9 aspect ratio, and 250 cd/m2 brightness. The integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400 delivers a sharp, clear picture and you'll also be able to output video to an external display using the built-in DisplayPort 1.2a and VGA outputs. For connecting to the Internet, the EliteBook Folio 9480m is equipped with wired Gigabit Ethernet and dual-band 802.11ac (2x2) Wi-Fi. External peripherals, such as additional storage or optical drives may be connected using the three USB 3.0 Type-A ports, one of which doubles as a charging port. Additional compatible peripherals may be connected using Bluetooth 4.0 LE technology.
For long-term storage of your files, the EliteBook Folio 9480m has a 256GB SATA SSD that not only provides quick access to your data, but is also a self-encrypting drive (SED). While this SSD may not have the larger storage capacity of a traditional spinning hard drive, SSDs contain no moving parts and are better protected against damage from bumps, drops, and vibration. SSDs also receive less wear and tear, as they contain no read or write heads for the drive media to come into contact with.
Whether you are listening to music, watching a movie, or playing a game, the built in stereo speakers offer HD audio with DTS Studio Sound. There is also an integrated 720p HD webcam which allows you to engage in face-to-face conversations using Skype or other software, an integrated dual-microphone array, and an SD media card reader that supports SD, SDHC, and SDXC card formats. For users who require more power while on-the-go, there is a secondary battery connector.
The EliteBook Folio 9480m Notebook is powered by a 45W Smart AC adapter and a 4-cell / 52Wh Lithium-ion battery that lasts for up to 13.25 hours before recharging is required. Included with this system is a power cord and Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) recovery media. While the installed operating system is Windows 7 Professional (64-bit), a Windows 10 Professional (64-bit) license is included at no additional cost.
