HP Introduces Multi-touch Tablet Notebooks in the Business EliteBook and ProBook Lines
      #36192 - 02/28/10 11:07 PM

HP today introduced its first multitouch-enabled tablet for business users as well as notebook PCs tailored for both enterprise and small and midsize businesses (SMBs). The new models include the HP EliteBook 2540p, the HP EliteBook 2740p, the HP ProBook 4320s, 4420s 4520s and the HP ProBook 4720s. Here is more info on these new HP notebooks:

HP EliteBook 2540p and 2740p:

Now offering standard voltage Intel processors, the HP EliteBook 2740p tablet PC combines the power and reliability of an HP business notebook PC with the flexibility of a tablet, making it ideal for users on the go. The 2740p starts at 3.8 pounds and includes a 12.1-inch diagonal LED display or optional outdoor-view display with less reflection and a higher contrast for easier viewing in natural light.



The HP EliteBook 2740p offers a variety of battery solutions for lightweight configurations, including a six-cell li-ion prismatic battery, which provides up to 5 hours of uptime, and an optional HP 2700 Ultra-Slim Battery that provides up to 11 hours when combined with the standard battery.

The optional HP 2740 Ultra-Slim Expansion Base allows users to dock their notebook PCs to utilize peripherals without needing to constantly plug and unplug. This innovative expansion base includes a DVD+/-RW drive, fits neatly into a briefcase so the optical drive can easily travel, and supports DisplayPort so users can easily connect to an external monitor. The expansion base also has an eSATA port, allowing for connection to an external RAID array, HDD and optical drives for fast and easy storage.

The HP EliteBook 2540p offers business users a choice of Intel Core processors in either standard voltage for maximum performance ? a first for HP ultra-portable notebooks ? or low voltage for increased flexibility with the convenience of an optical drive or secondary hard drive.



As the lightest-weight offering in the HP EliteBook portfolio, the 2540p is equipped with a 12.1-inch diagonal LED display, optional 2-megapixel webcam with business card reader software and HP Fingerprint Sensor.

Integrated HP Mobile Broadband powered by Gobi allows users to conveniently access the internet, company intranet, email and mission-critical information in more places than ever before, while HP Connection Manager 3.0 simplifies and automates connecting users with their preferred networks.

The HP EliteBook 2540p includes multiple battery options for lightweight configurations or longer battery life, including a three-cell battery that provides up to 4 hours, a six-cell battery that provides up to 8.5 hours, and a nine-cell battery that provides up to 12.5 hours.

Also available for select EliteBook models are three- and six-cell HP Long Life Batteries, providing a three-year life span ? up to twice as long as most li-ion notebook batteries. HP Long Life Batteries reduce overall battery waste by requiring fewer batteries to be used over the life of a PC.

Pricing and availability

The HP EliteBook 2540p starts at $1,099 and is expected to be available in the United States next month.

The HP EliteBook 2740p starts at $1,599 and is expected to be available in the United States next month.



HP ProBook notebooks:

The HP ProBook s-series is available in four HD LED-backlit display choices: HP ProBook 4320s (13.3-inch diagonal), HP ProBook 4420s (14-inch diagonal), HP ProBook 4520s (15.6-inch diagonal) and HP ProBook 4720s (17.3-inch diagonal).



Starting at $719, the HP ProBook s-series provides an affordable combination of features in a full-function notebook PC, including all-new 2010 Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors, a choice of Intel HD Graphics or discrete graphics for advanced multimedia support featuring the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4350 and multiple wireless technologies.

The HP ProBook s-series features new multimedia controls for video and comes loaded with the new ArcSoft TotalMedia Suite to allow users to play, edit and create video and audio files. The suite includes the following features: MediaImpression, TotalMedia LabelMaker, TotalMedia ShowBiz, TotalMedia Studio, TotalMedia Theater and WebCam Companion. The latest ClickPad Gestures functionality taps into a more intuitive document navigation experience for HP ProBook users.

Pricing and availability

The HP 2740 Ultra-Slim Expansion Base starts at $299 and is expected to be available in the United States next month.
