HP Reveals New EliteBook Lineup
Hewlett-Packard revealed a new line of EliteBook laptops today, using the same Forge design framework that was used for its business notebooks back in February. The new designs were built to look simpler, more durable, reliable, and are built in a greener way. The EliteBooks shine a gunmetal brushed finish, have a backlit HP logo, and “orange-colored accents.” The EliteBook 8440w, 8540w, and 8740w, will be replaced with the EliteBook 8460w, 8560w, and 8760w, which range from 14 inches to 17.3 inches in size. We agree that the model numbers are a bit bulky too.
HP’s new EliteBooks will have full HD screens with a choice between AMD FirePro or Nvidia Quadro grpahics. The two larger laptops will feature HP’s beautiful DreamColor display that allows for more than 1 billion active color combinations, 64 times the combinations of a traditional display, while using a 30-bit notebook LCD panel. The DreamColor display brings vibrant, crisper colors for computing that matters most to you. The smallest of the EliteBook pack will start at $1,299 with the 17.3-inch costing $1,899. Take a look at the video below for some upgrades HP have taken to design a better business laptop. The laptop shown on the right in the video is of the current generation.
