HP ProBook 5330m and EliteBook business ultra-portables unveiled

HP has announced a number of new ultra-portable business notebooks powered by Intel Sandy Bridge processors.

The ProBook 5330m boasts a brushed aluminium body, dual-tone colour scheme and is less than an inch thick, weighing 3.9 pounds. It also has a backlit keyboard.

The notebook comes with a 13.3 inch HD display and Sandy Bridge dual-core i3 and i5 processors. An HP Fingerprint sensor is on board for business-minded security, and the company is pitching this model at the value end of the market, with prices starting at £499.

For those who want to push the budget further, there’s the HP EliteBook 2560p and 2760p which are available in platinum (the colour, that is, not the precious metal – we’re not pushing the budget to Stuart Hughes levels here).

The 2560p is a clamshell design notebook with a 12.5 inch display, whereas the 2760p is a 12.1 inch tablet PC with a touchscreen which can be operated via finger or stylus.

Both EliteBooks have dual-core i5 or i7 processors on board, with 7200 RPM hard disks and solid-state drives on board.

These will, naturally enough, be more expensive, with the 2560p starting at £699 and the 2760p at £1199.

All these products will be out this month in the US, and are expected to make their way over here in June.

    On what planet is a 4lb laptop ultra portable, that’s a heavy brick. Ultra portable is under 2lbs.
