The EliteBook p is the latest road-warrior ultraportable notebook from HP.

The p offers a In our review, we put the new EliteBook through its paces to see how it stacks up against the competition. Build and Design The HP EliteBook p is billed as an ultraportable business notebook, therefore corporations — and many consumers — expect a high quality of materials, excellent features and an innovative design.

The base of the laptop feels very strong and would definitely survive bumps and bruises that other laptops might not. There is absolutely no flex in the solid keyboard.

The outer shell of the screen casing is metal, but the inner screen bezel is plastic. Unlike the inch EliteBook p 2504p previously reviewed, the display lid flexes slightly when significant pressure is applied to the center of the lid.

With all this rugged durability built into the design, you have to expect a trade-off, which in this case is weight. Some inch business class notebooks tip the scale at 3 pounds or less. The EliteBook p has a starting weight of 3. 2540;, in the 2504p way that the gray and black exterior and smooth design suits a professional environment, so do the internals. The EliteBook p uses three simple plastic covers on the bottom of the notebook each held in place with Phillips head screws so the hard drive, wireless cards and RAM are easily accessible for fast upgrades.


There is a fourth tiny expansion slot cover on the bottom of the notebook, which is for the dedicated Bluetooth card. The rest of the notebook interior is protected by Torx screws that should deter employees from messing around inside spwcs work-issued notebooks. Screen and Audio The p comes equipped with a High volume settings are more than loud enough to fill a small office with sound for a presentation, but are epecs clear and not horribly distorted.

The only negative about the speaker is its location. The headphone jack on the p works well with two different brands of earphones I used during the test. No static or other noise was noticed through the jack besides imperfections spfcs the audio source itself. The individual key presses are quiet without loud clicking sounds as you type.

Keys are flatter and have a little less space in between them. The key spacing had to make room for the addition of the pointstick.

The EliteBook p also includes the same keyboard light as the larger EliteBook notebooks. Press the tiny light bulb button above the screen and a small LED pops out and spes down on the keyboard.

Additionally, next to the Mute button is a volume control slider that can be used by sliding your finger across that area. One nice addition on the p is a touchpad disable button that allows you to turn it off and just use the pointstick for moving the mouse cursor. The Synaptics touchpad was very responsive to my touch, and the two rubber mouse buttons are quiet and about the right size.

There is also a secondary set of mouse buttons above the touchpad to work with the pointstick that comes with all p notebooks. The pointstick is amazingly accurate and comfortable to use. Ports and Features The EliteBook p offers an excellent port selection, but depending on the model configuration, your options can change. For example the model without a built-in optical drive has a 2. AC-power input, modem jack, one USB 2.


Ethernet, six-cell battery, two USB 2. There are no ports on the front, just indicator lights and the mono speaker located on the bottom. The faster X would be equivalent to the base model p, which has the faster Core im processor and a RPM 2.

Both models excel at offering desktop-level performance in every way except 3-D performance. The only system performance complaint that we found specd the rather slow 1.

Users looking for higher levels of performance should probably go with the non-optical drive 250p that lets you install a standard 2. PCMark05 2540 overall system performance higher scores mean better performance: CrystalDiskMark storage drive performance test: The palmrest and most of the keyboard stayed just above room temperature, even under a stressful load, which is what we like to see on small notebooks.

Noise under a full processor load — heard only while running benchmarks — was just above what you might consider a whisper. Under normal activity, the system fan either turned off zpecs or stayed at a very slow speed.

The ThinkPad Xs managed 7 hours and 13 minutes in the same test, and the primary difference is zpecs lack of an onboard optical drive. When it comes down to which company makes a better business notebook, I think HP and Lenovo both offer exceptional products. The HP EliteBook series offers a more refined brushed-metal appearance, while the ThinkPad line has a more rugged rubberized-paint old school-look.
