Conclusion: Against that, the display is only average and build-to-order configurations are costly. Corporate IT departments deploying a thousand units will love the EliteBook, but quantity-one entrepreneurs may want to compare it to another ultraportable with a DVD drive, Toshiba's 13.3-inch Portege R935, or the many appealing ultrabooks on the market if an optical drive isn't a must-have.
Pros: Highly expandable, Flexible battery options, Great typing feel, Mobile broadband add-on
Cons: Mediocre display quality, Small touch pad and wonky keyboard layout, Pricey in BTO configurations
Summary: From its highly functional ProtectTools utilities and sturdy design to its great low-light webcam and plethora of ports, the HP EliteBook 2570p is a compelling business portable that both users and IT managers will appreciate. If you're looking for a lighter notebook with longer battery life, consider the Lenovo ThinkPad X230, which starts at $835 and gets two hours' more endurance with its 9-cell battery.
Pros: Long battery life with extended battery, Durable design, Wide viewing angles, Strong overall performance
Conclusion: In the end, the EliteBook 2570p is a sturdy, well-built laptop that screams professionalism, and can prove itself out in the field. The Core i5 keeps the laptop humming along nicely, and while the integrated graphics aren’t anything too special, they prove that big things can come in small packages.
Summary: Built from the ground up to withstand the rigors of the road, the EliteBook 2570p is rugged and durable. It isn't in the same class as something like the Panasonic Toughbook series of laptops, but then again HP's offering isn't nearly as big or as bulky as those machines either. This is a computer that will hold up well to the challenges of travel and you'll never have to worry that it is too fragile to accompany you on a trip to just about anywhere.
Excerpt: Underexposed. HP's Elitebook 2570p is a subnotebook that bucks the trend towards increasingly lighter and slimmer systems. Its sturdiness, durability, battery life, performance, and communication interface options seem to make it the perfect ultra-mobile companion for professionals. We uncover the shortfalls of the notebook in our review. HP calls their series of laptops designed for professionals " Elitebook ".

Cons: Dark display with low contrast, Restrictive viewing angles, Power loss on battery
Conclusion: Если вам нужен инструмент для бизнеса, то перед вами стоит выбор, приобрести легкий, тонкий, стильный ультрабук, или же удобный, эргономичный, долговечный и производительный субноутбук, такой как, например, HP EliteBook 2570p. Решать вам, но среди достоинств последнего можно выделить продуманные до мелочей органы управления, среди которых кроме привычной клавиатуры и тачпада есть еще и поинстик.
