HP launches the 810 EliteBook Revolve G2 convertible
HP announced a list of new devices in Barcelona recently. The new products range from a new desktop to a new display, and includes updated versions of several earlier models. The 810 EliteBook Revolve G2 brings a long list of improvements to the convertible we saw earlier this year.
The G2 features an 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 anti-glare display, an Intel Haswell processor (Core i3, i5, or i7), Intel 4400 graphics, up to 12 GB of RAM, up to 256 GB of internal storage, optional 802.11ac wifi, optional LTE, 2 USB 3.0 ports (1 charging), 1 Ethernet port, 1 DisplayPort 1.2, a side docking connector, a microSD slot, and DTS Studio Sound Audio. It's offered with a range of different Windows OS options, though the touchscreen and tablet modes make Windows 8.1 a logical choice.
With business users clearly in mind, HP designed its new Elitebook to be surprisingly rugged and included Gorilla Glass 3, a spill resistant backlit keyboard, and an all magnesium chassis. So while it may not be quite as thin (0.87 inches) or light (3.08 pounds) as some of its competitors, the MIL-STD 810G rating and data security features offered here certainly have their appeal. The compatibility with a docking station only sweetens the deal.
The 810 EliteBook Revolve G2 will be available in the United States on December 20th. Prices start at US$1364. Prices and availability for other regions have not yet been announced.
