Bonsai. A bonsai is a perfected miniature tree, maintained well and with a lot of perseverance. Is HP's smallest EliteBook also perfect in form and devised with attention to detail?
80% HP EliteBook 2170p review - Ultrabook for business from HP
Source: Tech Advisor English
Among the included HP-branded application is the HP ProtectTools suite, which sets up drive encryption, password management, biometrics controls (both fingerprint and face recognition), and smart-card functions. Also included is the Computrace theft-recovery system, although a separate subscription is required to activate it. Less impressive is the HP SoftPaq Manager for installing HP-specific updates to the system. Its bewildering interface -- vintage Windows 2000 -- left me wondering whether or not I had installed certain updates. With any luck, in a managed fleet, the end-user won't ever have to touch it.

The HP EliteBook 2170p is a well-designed business ultraportable with a terrific keyboard and a solidly resilient chassis. Battery life is a little short for a system designed for portability, but 2170p has the computing power to serve as your primary PC plugged in. It's a reasonably priced ultraportable whose compact size and good feature set make it worthy of consideration.

The EliteBook 2170p may be a pricey and meaty-around-the-hips departure from the ultrabook norm, but we can't imagine too many traveling execs who wouldn't like to carry a compact, good-looking model like this one. Still, this machine is something of an odd beast: a chunky, decidedly IT-first machine in a world trending towards bring-your-own-device (BYOD) consumerization and slim, trim ultraportables and ultrabooks. length 4

At $1,099, the HP EliteBook 2170p offers a durable build and above-average battery life in a lightweight design that's easy for road warriors to carry. Our chief complaint is the liliputian touchpad, which makes executing Windows 8 gestures somewhat of a pain. In this price range, we prefer the Lenovo ThinkPad X230, which, though slightly larger and heavier, costs about $100 less and offers longer battery life, a brighter display, and better pointing stick.

The EliteBook line is long overdue for an update. Today, when placed alongside modern Ultrabooks, the 2170p looks and feels ancient. It’s thick, it’s bulky, and it lacks a responsive solid-state drive. These traits make it a poor alternative to any number of consumer Ultrabooks on the market. Even business users have a better option in the Lenovo X230, which beats the 2170p in almost every category.

Business Class, But Business Savvy?
Source: AnandTech English
Expectations are strange things. As reviewers we try to be unbiased, but we aren't really immune to being excited about or nervous about a product coming in for review. Consequently, a promising product that turns out to be nearly everything you hoped for can get a fairly glowing review, but a promising product that falls short of expectations can quickly turn into a diplomatic exercise.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

3667U: Fastest Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 2.0 - 3.2 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1150 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

1.445 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

HP: The Hewlett-Packard Company, founded 1935, commonly referred to as HP, is a technology corporation headquartered in California, United States. HP specializes in developing and manufacturing computing, storage, and networking hardware, software and services. Major product lines include personal computing devices, enterprise servers, related storage devices, as well as a diverse range of printers and other imaging products. Other product lines, including electronic test equipment and systems, medical electronic equipment, solid state components and instrumentation for chemical analysis. HP posted US $91.7 billion in annual revenue in 2006, making it the world's largest technology vendor in terms of sales. In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. 

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.


In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).

73.71%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
