HP refreshed the EliteBook 2740p tablet PC

If I had to buy a new tablet PC today, it would probably be the HP EliteBook 2740p Tablet PC. I've used convertible tablet PCs made by Fujitsu, Lenovo, and HP. I like the ThinkPad X200 tablet PC, but the EliteBook 2740p includes features that are more appropriate for a user like me.

HP recently refreshed their line of EliteBook 2740p tablet PC. Now, you can spend the same amount of money (1,599.00 and 1,699.00) and you'll get faster machines when you choose either the HP EliteBook 2740p Tablet PC (ENERGY STAR) (XT935UT) or the HP EliteBook 2740p Tablet PC (ENERGY STAR) (XT936UT) pre-configured models on the HP website.

You can also configure your model so that you have the latest processing speed by choosing the Intel® Core™ i7-640M Processor (2.80 GHz, 4 MB L3 cache).

Let me highlight some of the innovative features that you'll only find on the HP EliteBook 2740p tablet PC:
  • Pop-out LED light that illuminates the keyboard
  • Ultra-slim battery option that attaches to the base of the computer and provides an additional 4-5 hrs of computing time
  • Ultra-slim expansion base/docking station that includes an optical drive (much thinner compared to other docking stations)
Like many other convertible tablet PCs, the 2740p includes a multi-touch screen option in addition to the active Wacom digitizer.  Since the HP 2740p isn't a rugged tablet PC, if you have the need for a rugged tablet, go with a Panasonic Toughbook instead.
