HP has officially confirmed the newest member to its line of business convertibles: the HP EliteBook 2760p, a heavy hitting Windows 7 device geared toward professionals.
Details began to emerge about the EliteBook 2760p back in March, and HP has now officially announced the device along with two laptops.
The convertible tablet will run Windows 7 and feature a Sandy Bridge processor (either Core i7 or Core i5), a 12.1-inch multi-touch screen with 1366 x 768 or 1440 x 900 screen resolution, 16GB of RAM, Intel GMA 3000 HD graphics, HDD or SSD, USB 3.0, Blu-ray or DVD drive, eSATA/USB, DisplayPort, multicard reader, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, and optional 3G/4G.
HP’s newest offering will have to compete with several other convertibles and business tablets soon to arrive on the market, including the Dell Latitude XT3 convertible, the Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 slate, and the Lenovo ThinkPad X220 convertible, which TabletPCReview is currently reviewing.
Considering the upcoming selection of new business models, it would seem that professional tablets are continuing to flourish in the wake of the consumer tablet onslaught.
The HP EliteBook 2760p is currently available, with prices starting at $1,500.
