6 Things We Like, 3 Things We Don't About The HP Revolve 810 G1

Full-Size Ports

Also unusual among Ultrabooks, all Revolve ports are full size. Most competitors shrink one or more ports -- usually monitor and wired networking -- and some forgo certain ports altogether. The Revolve 810 delivers full-size USB 3.0 ports, one of which is powered during sleep mode, a gigabit Ethernet port and dual-mode DisplayPort, which can be adapted to HDMI and single-link DVI. These are all on the unit's rear edge along with the power input and an LED that glows amber when charging and white when full. The right-side edge is home to a 3.5-mm headset jack, volume controls, rotate lock, power switch, docking connector and a microSD/SIM card slot. The two remaining edges are clear.
