Expand Your Business Productivity with the HP EliteBook
The HP EliteBook is a series of notebooks, tablets, and workstations designed exclusively for businesses, meaning you don't have to quit working on your presentation just because the workday is over. Each laptop is bundled with business-class security and productivity features coupled with sharp graphics and impressive battery life. The series was first released by Hewlett-Packard in August of 2008, and it encompasses several different generations of products, including i5 and i7 processor models ranging from 2.0 to 3.4 GHz.What types of laptops are in the HP EliteBook series?
The HP EliteBook comes in several different form factors, ranging between the subnotebooks and the larger notebooks and workstations. The subnotebook is a smaller and lighter version of a full-sized laptop. Peripheral features such as an optical disk drive and certain ports are omitted to reduce the size of the device. The business workstation, on the other hand, is a full-sized notebook. It features additional security and remote management capabilities. Some models also have tablet functionality by letting you fold the keyboard behind the screen to access a tablet or tent mode. These tablets come with a stylus as well.What are the common hardware features of the HP EliteBook?
The HP EliteBook is designed to meet the military MIL-STD-810 standards for reliability and performance. It features a durable construction consisting of a magnesium alloy chassis, an anodized lid, and spill-resistant keys. An internal accelerometer will automatically sense when the laptop has been dropped. It can then prepare the hard drive for impact to avoid unnecessary mechanical damage. Select models also feature a backlit keyboard and a solid-state storage drive. A solid-state drive has the advantage of faster read and write speeds, and more reliable operations (meaning it is less prone to random disruptions) compared to the typical magnetic drive.
The EliteBook features either an Intel (usually i5 or i7) or AMD processor, depending on the model. You can also choose to have either an integrated or a dedicated graphics card. The screen size of the EliteBook series can range between 11.6 inches at the lower end and 17 inches at the higher end. Most EliteBook laptops output video at 1080p, but a select few models are capable of displaying an ultra high-definition resolution of 2160p, also known as 4K resolution.What kind of software features come with the EliteBook?
That depends on the model of laptop or netbook. Some models come with video conferencing features that provide extra clarity and detail as you keep in touch with coworkers, including a high-definition camera and five Bang & Olufsen audio speakers. An optional HP Premium Collaboration Keyboard can help you manage voice and video calls with dedicated Skype for Business keys and LED lights for mute, screen-sharing, webcam use, and incoming calls. In addition, select models may come with the following security features:
- HP Sure Click - Protects against malware, ransomware, and viruses
- HP Sure View - Protects against visual hacking
- HP Multi-Factor Authenticate - Facial recognition, PIN number, password protection, and fingerprint identification
- HP Sure Start - Restores the in-memory BIOS to a predetermined custom state
