  • Conclusion: You'll find a lot to like in the HP EliteBook 2170p if you're assigned one as an official work laptop—at least if you can coax your IT admin to toss in a wireless mouse with it. If you're looking for a laptop of your own, however, we'd recommend checking out slightly more user-friendly options such as the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon ultrabook, the Lenovo ThinkPad T430s, or the Lenovo ThinkPad Twist hybrid.
  • Pros: Abundant business features, Solid, attractive build quality, Easy to repair or upgrade, Lightweight and highly portable
  • Cons: Very cramped touch pad, Pricey, Jutting battery in test model, Humdrum display

HP EliteBook 2170p Review

LAPTOP Magazine
18 December 2012
  • Summary: At $1,099, the HP EliteBook 2170p offers a durable build and above-average battery life in a lightweight design that's easy for road warriors to carry. Our chief complaint is the liliputian touchpad, which makes executing Windows 8 gestures somewhat of a pain. In this price range, we prefer the Lenovo ThinkPad X230, which, though slightly larger and heavier, costs about $100 less and offers longer battery life, a brighter display, and better pointing stick.

HP EliteBook 2170p Review

12 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Laptops are undergoing change like never before. New designs with ultra-thin profiles, touchscreens, and convertible hinges are making their way to the market in hopes of changing the way people will forever use laptops. Meanwhile, HP’s business line has remained stubborn in the face of a changing industry and just wants those dang kids to get off its lawn. You’ll find no Ultrabooks here, sonny!
  • Pros: Good build quality, Remains cool and quiet at load, Useful pre-installed software
  • Cons: Bulky, Could use more connectivity, Small touchpad, Poor display quality, SSD not standard, expensive as an upgrade, Overpriced

HP EliteBook 2170p Ultraportable Review: Business Class, But Business Savvy?

30 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Expectations are strange things. As reviewers we try to be unbiased, but we aren't really immune to being excited about or nervous about a product coming in for review. Consequently, a promising product that turns out to be nearly everything you hoped for can get a fairly glowing review, but a promising product that falls short of expectations can quickly turn into a diplomatic exercise.

  • Excerpt: Laptops or notebook PCs are undergoing immense changes with respect to design and build quality with ultra-thin profiles, touch screen displays and convertible hinges. This radical change is making its way to the market in the hope of changing the way people will use laptops ceaselessly. But, HP's business-class line-up has remained obstinate in this regard so far. However, the company has come-up with a new business laptop that falls in the realm of ultra-portability.

Test: HP EliteBook 2170p přináší maximální možnosti v miniaturním provedení

8 November 2014
  • Summary: 11,6“ HP EliteBook 2170p je v dnešní nabídce notebooku tak trochu unikátní. Vlastně jde o jediný podobně vybavený pracovní notebook s dokovacím konektorem v rámci úhlopříčky (konkurence se vyskytuje až u modelů v úhlopříčce od 12,5“). Jde o výbornou kombinaci malého zařízení s výkonem a výbavou téměř na úrovni velkých notebooků, navíc s možností používat standardní dokovací stanice od HP.
  • Pros: funkce velkých notebooků v kompaktním provedení, dokovací konektor shodný s pracovními řadami P/W/B, pohodlná klávesnice s podsvícením
  • Cons: hlučný pevný disk (7200 rpm), displej by mohl mít vyšší jas

HP EliteBook 2170p – 11-дюймовый солдат элитных войск

8 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Если ваша сфера деятельности предполагает частые командировки, участие в презентациях или присутствие на деловых конференциях, то без такого ноутбука как HP EliteBook 2170p вам просто не обойтись. В нем есть сканер отпечатка пальца, необходимый для защиты конфиденциальных файлов, набор портов, среди которых два USB 3.0, а также неплохая аппаратная начинка и эргономичные устройства ввода, в числе которых – поинтстик и водонепроницаемая клавиатура с подсветкой клавиш.
