HP revealed several Intel Haswell chip-powered laptops for business users last week, including a business ultrabook that's more robust than the average machine. We got a closer look at the Elitebook 800 series ultrabook at the launch event in Barcelona, where the firm gave us a demo of the thinner and lighter upgrade to its previous flagship business device, the Elitebook 8000, touting a few new design features that we haven't seen before from HP.
HP claims that the Elitebook 800 passed nine military grade durability tests, so it should be resistant against even the most clumsy office workers. One of the key innovations is its resistance against pressure, humidity, temperature, drop impacts, physical shock, dust and moisture, and it has a spill resistant keyboard that drains spilled liquids without incurring damage.
The Elitebook 800 will arrive in three editions, the 12in 820 G1, the 14in 840 G1 and the 15in 850 G1, each with a "leather feel" material covering its chassis. It will have specifications of Intel fourth generation Haswell Core CPUs with integrated HD 4400 graphics and up to 16GB of DDR3 RAM.
The HP Elitebook 800 ultrabooks are available in the UK now from £899.
