HP’s introduced the EliteBook 2530p, a thin and light 12-inch business notebook that can be configured with dual hard drives and either ULV or LV processors. I sat down with HP’s Kyle Thornton to take a close look at the 2530p last week.
The 2530p feels extremely solid and I really like some of the features HP’s loaded into this thing. At the top of the 12.1-inch LED display is a 2MP Webcam that can be used to scan business cards into Outlook.
One thing I liked about the 2530p is how its extended batteries fit at the rear of the notebook without raking the base of the notebook.
Like the rest of the EliteBook line, the 2530p has an ultradurable case that’s scratch resistant.
The EliteBook 2530p will start at $1599.
al Core is a new technology d
esigned to improve performance of certain software products. Not all customers or software applications will necessarily benefit from use of this technology. 64-bit computing on Intel architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers and applications enabled for Intel® 64 architecture. Processors will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. Performance will vary depending on your hardware and software configurations. See www.intel.com/info/em64t for more information. Do not copy copy-right protected materials. Double Layer discs can store more data than single layer discs. Double-layer discs burned with this drive may not be compatible with many existing single-layer DVD drives and players. LightScribe creates a monochrome image. LightScribe media required and sold separately. Note that DVD-RAM cannot read or write to 2.6 GB Single Sided/5.2 GB Double Sided Version 1.0 media. Wireless broadband and Gobi technology use requires separately purchased service contract. Check with service provider for availability and coverage in your area. Available in select countries only. WiFi access point and Internet service required and not included. Availability of public wireless access points limited. The specifications for the 802.11n WLAN are draft specifications and are not final. If the final specifications differ from the draft specifications, it may affect the ability of the notebook to communicate with other 802.11n WLAN devices. For hard drives, GB = 1 billion bytes. Actual formatted capacity is less. Up to 8 GB (for XP) and 10 GB (for Vista) of system disk is reserved for the system recovery software. Shared video memory (UMA) uses part of the total system memory for video performance. System memory dedicated to video performance is not available for other use by programs. The term “10/100/1000” or “Gigabit” Ethernet indicates compliance with IEEE standard 802.3ab for Gigabit Ethernet, and does not connote actual operating speed of 1 Gb/sec. For high speed transmission, connection to a Gigabit Ethernet server and network infrastructure is required. Fast Charge technology recharges your battery up to 90% within 90 minutes when the system is off. Fast Charge does not apply to 9-cell battery. Select models only. Some functionality of Intel Centrino Pro and vPro, such as Intel Active management technology and Intel Virtualization technology, requires additional 3rd party software in order to run. Availability of future “virtual appliances” applications for Centrino Pro and vPro technology is dependant on 3rd party software providers. Compatibility with future “virtual appliances” and Microsoft Windows Vista operating system is yet to be determined. Sold separately or purchased as an optional feature. Windows Vista Business disk may be included for future upgrade if desired. To qualify for this downgrade an end user must be a business (including governmental or educational institutions) and is expected to order at least 25 customer systems with the same custom image. HD content required to view HD images. Dual Channel is only supported when the system is configured with DDR2 symmetric memory (ie: 2×256). 60 day trial period. Internet access required to receive updates. First update included. Subscription required for updates thereafter.
