HP has updated its enterprise laptop range, adding new technology that boosts performance and productivity with second-generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processors and Core i7, i5 and i3 dual-core processors.
The HP EliteBook 8460p and 8560p notebooks are designed to withstand more than the usual wear and tear while still looking professional, the firm said.
The EliteBook 8460p also offers a claimed battery life of up to 32 hours, which beats the 30 hours offered by one of the Lenovo ThinkPads released on 22 February.
The HP ProBook 6360b, 6460b and 6560b notebooks, meanwhile, may appeal to PC tweakers as it is simple to change their configuration in a range of areas including processor, graphics and battery.
The ProBook b series of notebooks come with a 13.3in screen, along with consumer and business features such as webcams and card readers.
The ProBook s series has also had an upgrade, and the 4230s, 4330s, 4430s, 4530s and 4730s notebooks come in a range of sizes and specs designed to be an affordable option for small and midsized businesses.
The HP EliteBook 8460p and HP EliteBook 8560p models have 14in or 15.6in high-definition LED backlit displays and what HP calls "optimum business performance".
The p series notebooks include the second-generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processors and Core i7, i5 and i3 dual-core processors, and have the option of high-performance AMD Radeon HD 6470M discrete graphics.
The p series have USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 charging port and a choice between three-, six- and nine-cell batteries.
The notebooks will go on sale in the US from March. V3.co.uk is still waiting to hear from HP on UK release dates and pricing.
