The magnesium-alloy chassis felt strong in my hands. I wouldn't want to drop it on purpose, but I didn't worry about it being bumped around in my bag on the subway while I brought it to and from the office. The touch screen features Corning Gorilla Glass, so it should be able to withstand cracking if you drop your briefcase on the ground. Additionally, the keyboard is spill-resistant (up to 6 ounces of liquid), so an errant glass of water or Diet Coke won't disrupt your workday.
The 12.5-inch 1920 x 1080p touch display on the E7250 offers bright images but somewhat muted colors. In our tests, the screen reproduced just 69 percent of the sRGB color gamut -- less than the category average of 76 percent. The HP Folio 1020 can reproduce 95 percent of the color gamut.
When I watched trailers for The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man in 1080p, the pattern in the red of Ant-Man's suit was harder to make out when he was in motion, and the little bolts of electricity in Black Widow's batons didn't stand out. Iron Man and Captain America also lost some of the bright colors in their suits, but the blacks were deep.
