HP recently unveiled the HP EliteBook Revolve, a new convertible notebook with Windows 8, aimed at business users. The device offers decent performance and tablet functionality with a few nice options. The price will most certainly meet the high-end standard.
The HP EliteBook Revolve has an 11.6-inch display with a 1366 × 768 resolution. The screen is made of Gorilla Glass 2, but thankfully it has a matte finish and features a brightness of 400 candelas. Under the hood, HP put the latest Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 CPUs, along with 4 to 12 (!) Gigabytes of RAM. HP also added a SSD that comes with up to 256 GB. There are two USB 3.0 ports, a DisplayPort, a full Ethernet port, Wi-Fi and an optional 4G LTE modem.
The keyboard has a backlight and the trackpad is a clickpad. The display can be rotated by moving the device on a central hinge. The launch will take place in March and although HP hasn’t given a price yet, you can be sure that it will be pricey. HP will also sell the device with Windows 7 and plans to offer an equally optional stylus. It weighs about 1.36 kilograms and despite the hinge, the EliteBook Revolve is only 22 millimeters thick.
