Notebookcheck
15 February 2010
  • Conclusion: The Elitebook 2530p meets all the demands of business users looking for a compact and mobile notebook. The case provides good protection for the hardware as well as the display, and it should be able to cope easily with rough treatment during field work . Those who spend a lot of time typing will appreciate the good keyboard with generously sized keys arranged in a standard layout.
  • Pros: Robust and elegant case, Shock-resistant hard drive, Spill-resistant keyboard, Good processor performance for applications, Screen suitable for use outside, Easy-to-use transport lock, Can be connected to a docking station, Optical drive, The elegant and yet durable design, the wide range of operating systems supported and the fact that a recovery disk is supplied.
  • Cons: Lid hinges not very firm, Positioning of the audio ports, Only 2 USB 2.0 ports on this model

Review: HP EliteBook 2530p Laptop

JusTech'n
17 June 2009
  • Conclusion: Overall I am impressed with the laptop. The performance is fairly low, but I kind of expected this because of the size of the laptop. However, the battery life more than makes up for the low performance, the battery life is absolutely amazing. If you are looking for a laptop with really long battery life this is definitely the machine for you. I personally think most business laptop users care more about battery life than they do about bleeding edge performance.

HP Elitebook 2530p, a business laptop with a solid 4-5 hours of battery life

iTnews Australia
5 June 2009
  • Excerpt: HP's Elitebook range is designed for the long haul - with battery life from 6-24hrs, it's hard not to see that as the main draw. But there are aspects that shouldn't be overlooked in the quest for long battery life. Performance is, of course, always a big priority for PC Authority, and we're not adverse to a little style, as well. The slim aluminium chassis and slimline lid makes the 2530p relatively slender overall, and it's both eye-catching and well-finished.
