HP has refreshed their EliteBook notebook computer range for 2010, with improved processing speed, enhanced memory capability, new features and functionality as well as unprecedented levels of durability, perfect for business use. The new range is now available in South Africa from distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC).

"In line with ever evolving technology, HP has made several improvements to the EliteBook range, a line of business class notebooks that has been designed and engineered with corporate and big business users in mind," says Anamika Budree, HP PSG Business Unit Manager at DCC. "With the latest Intel processors and a series of features designed to enhance durability and lengthen lifespan, these notebooks are ideal for large enterprise looking for workhorse solutions to improve business productivity."

The EliteBook range incorporates the latest generation of Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. The new generation Intel processors are more power efficient than ever before thereby allowing for longer working times on battery power. Combined with DDR3 SDRAM Memory modules, these machines offer top performance.

"Features such as full sized spill resistant keyboards, tough construction to withstand daily use and USB 3.0 ports as well as the ability to handle dust, humidity, vibration, altitude and high temperatures on the higher end models, these notebooks represent a new generation of tough, durable business machines," comments Deon Botha, HP Product Manager at DCC.

Optional extras such as docking stations make moving from office to home office and back a breeze, with all external cabling and power connected directly to the docking station, ultra capacity battery packs extend battery life operation up to 10 hours and HP Professional Series carry cases.

"The machines come standard with Windows 7, but have the capacity to downgrade to Vista or XP for a limited period for corporate network compatibility. The higher end models also include dedicated graphics cards to allow for the running of graphic-intensive applications such as CAD without compromising system performance," says Budree.

"The entire EliteBook range has been built for performance, giving workers the ability to do their jobs more efficiently and effectively. With a design specifically aimed at improving lifespan, these machines are ideal for corporate that need workstation type notebooks with a longer lifecycle and top level performance," she concludes.

The new EliteBook range consists of the 2540p Notebook PC, replacing the 2530p, the 2740p Tablet PC that replaces the 2730p, the 8540pand 8540w replacing the old 8530 series, and the 8740w to replace the 8730. The range is available from DCC.
