HP have just unveiled their newest laptops, with the EliteBook P-series, ProBook B-series, and ProBook S-series range. HP are marketing these notebooks to corporate and business users, with the inclusion of new Intel core processors and extended battery life.
The new 14 inch HP EliteBook 8460p and 15 inch EliteBook 8560p P-series notebooks feature a brand new and completely redesigned case that meets the MIL-STD 8710G military-standard, which means these computers should be able to handle pretty much everything you might want to throw at them – literally.
The P-series also comes with the choice of a second gen Intel i7 quad-core processor (Sandy Bridge), AMD Radeon HD 6470M discrete graphics option, USB 3.0 ports, the choice of a regular hard disk or solid state drive, and extended battery life of up to 32 hours with the new HP Ultra-Capacity notebook battery.
The HP EliteBook 8460p starts from $899 and the 8560p from $1099, with both models available from March 15 in the U.S
The B-series models – 13 inch HP ProBook 6360b, 14 inch HP ProBook 6460b and 15 inch HP ProBook 6560b – may not have hard-core military specifications, but they still feature some pretty nice upgrades. Along with the choice of dual-core Intel Core or Intel Celeron processors, there is also optional AMD Radeon HD 6470M discrete graphics.
The HP B-series models start from $799 depending on options, with units in store from March 15.
The S-series – 4230, 4330, 4430, 4530, and 4730 models are available in many sizes, from lightweight 12 inch models through to large 17 inch desktop replacements. The S-series also offer second generation Intel Core processors, with an i3, i5, and i7 all on offer along with an Intel Celeron option. The S-series also feature a spill resistant keyboard and USB 3.0 ports, although the discrete graphics option is not available on any of the S-series.
HP S-series models start from only $579, and will also be available on March 15 in the United States.
