HP EliteBook 2740p

PC Magazine
8 January 2011
  • Conclusion: The HP EliteBook 2740p transitions to standard-voltage processor and adds multitouch, but the screen and the user experience could use an overhaul.
  • Pros: Standard-voltage processors replace low-volt ones. When used in tandem, the two batteries delivered outstanding battery life. Lightweight. Ruggedized for business travel. Sleekest looking tablet.
  • Cons: Pointing stick is stiff. Very small touchpad. Screen isn't bright enough. Extended battery ($180) and expansion base ($250) are very pricey options.

Laptop Review: HP EliteBook 2740p

HardwareCentral
23 September 2010
  • Conclusion: One reason for our battery life gripe is that HP didn't skimp with a low-voltage or netbook-class CPU when building the EliteBook: The chip under the hood is, if anything, an overachiever -- Intel's Core i5-540M, a 2.53GHz dual-core, four-threaded processor with 3MB of Level 3 cache.

HP EliteBook 2740p

Pocket Lint
31 January 2011
  • Conclusion: The EliteBook models are HP's attempt to combine business features with both style and sturdiness. The 2740p takes the great pen experience of previous EliteBook tablets and adds the performance of a full-voltage Core i5 processor, plus the convenience (and sheer fun) of touch.
  • Pros: Powerful tablet PC, great pen input, great touch input, a great keyboard, excellent screen, delightful touches like the keyboard light
  • Cons: Weight, less-than-stellar battery life, the price
