86% Review HP EliteBook 2560p LG666EA Subnotebook | Notebookcheck
Dark Room. The smallest EliteBook feels quite heavy in the suitcase with a weight of 2 kgs. Still, it manages to deal with everyday tasks without a problem. To find out why the mobility suffers, despite the matt display and 6 hours run time, take a look at the following in-depth review.

In terms of direct competition, there is only one laptop that butts heads with the HP EliteBook 2560p, and that’s Lenovo’s ThinkPad X220. The EliteBook wins on price only if you take a gander at the manufacturer websites alone. On Amazon and at other online retailers, it appears that the base X220 with a Core i5 processor can be had for around $100 less than the base 2560p.

HP Elitebook 2560p Review
Source: Maximum PC English
With its sturdy build, strong performance, and upgrade-friendliness, the HP 2560p is certainly appealing. But when it comes to performance and portability, we’re partial to the Toshiba R830’s lighter carry weight, longer battery life, and lower price.

The HP EliteBook 2560p is a good choice for business professionals on the go. The second-generation Intel Core i5-2410M dual-core processor and 4GB of system memory makes multi-tasking a breeze and users will be able to do any amount of work tasks with the system. Another reason this notebook will be able to perform on the go is that it was able to provide 7 hours and 45 minutes of battery life.

80% HP EliteBook 2560p Review

HP once again delivers an impressive business notebook that would be a great addition to any road warrior's arsenal. The $1,199 HP EliteBook 2560p combines attractive looks and durability along with strong performance and extended battery life. The suite of security tools is helpful and easy to use. If an optical drive isn't essential, we recommend the Lenovo ThinkPad X220, which, for $971, gets you the same specs as the Elitebook, as well as a nine-cell battery that lasts longer on a charge. Overall, though, the 2560p is a great choice.

If you need an ultraportable laptop that you can be confident will stand up to a few years of heavy use, the HP EliteBook 2560p deserves a look. A three-year warranty and on-site service are available to provide additional peace of mind.

There's a lot to be said about an ultraportable that crams in the gamut of essential business features, while performing at a very high level. The HP Elitebook 2560p is the only 12-inch ultraportable left that comes with a built-in optical drive and loads a powerful Core i5 processor. Its battery scores and typing experience didn't quite measure up to the Lenovo ThinkPad X220, but it's a solid business ultraportable nonetheless and worth its weight (or what little there is) on the road.

This small business laptop has a lot of features for its size, and it supplies good performance via its full-voltage Intel Core i5 CPU. It could use some more standard features though, such as SSD, integrated 3G and USB 3.0, but it's still a good overall unit.

All up, this is a good effort by HP that should appeal to users who want something small with good performance. It does feel a little too heavy for its size, but it's solidly built and fairly comfortable to use and it has lots of features. That said, we think it should come with an SSD and integrated 3G as standard, and it could also use USB 3.0.

The nice thing about top-of-line notebooks is that they usually leave you wanting for little—or nothing. HP's new ultraportable EliteBook 2560p, which replaces last year's 2540p, is no exception. HP offers up strong performance with all the productivity and security features business users need, but the lack of USB 3.0 support and the short battery life should give you pause.
