HP gets down to business with redesigned and refreshed EliteBook and ProBook laptops (hands-on)
Two weeks ago “consumers” got totally redesigned HP Pavilion dv and g-series laptops, leaving those poor guys in the conference room with nothing but their “old” Calpella-based machines and sad Excel spreadsheets. Well, it’s their turn now alright — HP’s been stirring up brand new EliteBook and ProBooks for the guys and gals in suits (though, we’re really of the mind that these laptops are for anyone looking for some tough and powerful hardware). All ten of the new machines (yep, 10!) have been given new metal designs, Intel’s latest Sandy Bridge processors, facial recognition software, and an easy-access latch to get to the hard drive and RAM. And there’s more — hit the jump for a break down and impressions of each of the models, and don’t forget to check those galleries below for some shots of these rigs in the flesh.
