HP’s new EliteBook 2170p should please just about any business traveler. Weighing in at just 2.89 pounds, this 11.6″ enterprise notebook weighs in at about half the weight of typical 14″ corporate notebooks
The EliteBook 2170p is just over an inch thick, which is relatively thick compared to the latest consumer notebooks or ultrabooks, but there’s good reason for that.Like the entire HP EliteBook P series, the 2170p is built with a durable aluminium and magnesium exterior. HP designed the EliteBook 2170p to meet military specification 810G, which means it can stand up to drops and other hazards. As a semi-rugged machine, the 2170p won’t quit on users when it falls off of an airport x-ray conveyor belt or when a flight attendent spills a little water on it.
It is compatible with EliteBook accessories, including power adapters and docking stations. This is important in corporate environments where IT managers standardize their technology as much as possible. This makes it more affordable to mobilize workers who want to ditch their 14″ and 15″ notebooks.
The EliteBook 2170p comes with a 4-cell battery that can last for up to nine hours on a single charge. HP will offer a 6-cell battery that will last 50% longer. Battery stamina will vary in the real world, where users multitask and run their screens at full brightness. Aluminum Magnesium,
The EliteBook 2170p is loaded with security features. It comes with a TPM module, SmartCard reader and a fingerprint scanner to keep information secure. It has a Kensington lock slot to tether the notebook when its left alone.
The HP EliteBook 2170P is available with up to 16GB of RAM and with various sizes of hard drives or SSDs, including self encrypting models for enhanced security. The optional 720P HD webcam is a recommended upgrade for users that need to stay in touch while working remotely.
HP’s Elitebook line is primarily used by companies and government agencies that put an emphasis on reliability and durability. You won’t find EliteBooks at your local big-box store, but you can order them direct from HP.com and authorized resellers.
