CNET Editors’ Rating
3.5 stars – Very good
The good: The HP Elitebook 9470m has a solid, lightweight design, great battery life, and lots of ports and security features.
The bad: There’s no touch screen, it has a non-high-res display, and there’s a general lack of unique features to justify its high price.
The bottom line: 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 chances.
