HP's EliteBook Folio Ultrabook getting a 1,600 x 900 screen option in March

We’ll be the first to admit we’ve reviewed an overwhelming number of Windows 8 laptops lately, but perhaps you remember the HP EliteBook Folio? If you don’t, here’s a one-sentence summary: it’s a fantastic machine, with long battery life, fast performance and a generous warranty, but it’s stuck with a fairly low-res 1,366 x 768 display. As it turns out, HP is already working on a better screen. A spokesperson for the company confirmed to us that a 1,600 x 900 option will be offered to US and European customers starting in early March. No word yet on how much that upgrade will cost, but if the pixel count was the main reason you ruled it out the first time around, it might be worth a second look — so long as you’re willing to wait another two months for it, of course.
