31 December 2013
Summary: I owned 2 of these laptops. I owned many from tablets to laptops. Looking for a machine that can be used for work was difficult. I had a tablet which I was shy to hold because it felt to fragile. The Elitebook 2740 meets my needs, strong 64bit tablet form and yes my keyboard with it. I absolutely didn't feel to good clicking screen letters often, it was like 5 WPM. This was a work laptop.
Summary: The computer currently in your possession was been reported stolen by the DC Public Schools In Washington , DC. The theft is being investigated by Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, DC under police report 162-711. Computrace™ tracking software is installed on the computer and we are able to monitor the movement and usage of it through several patented technologies owned and developed by Absolute Software.
Summary: The Elite PC tablet is versatile and compatible in most any environment and shows to be a great asset. With the ability to connect cellular and to convert to a tablet allows me to send e-mail run specialize software, take photos and keep abreast of upcoming events. With extended battery life and docking it's an all in one PC. Purchasing a use model of HP products shows great workmanship upon HP.

Summary: Powerful, Super Fast i5 Intel Processor, ULTRA Portable, Business-rugged laptop w/LOTS of features including fingerprint log in, & amazing security features to keep sensitive information inaccessible by the wrong hands! 1st convertible laptop that serves a killer notebook PC AND a KILLER tablet! I use the regular PC for intense work but can still use the touch screen in tight spaces.
Summary: This Intel i5 based Windows 7 pc is light weight is great for traveling and is fast. The tablet works great with MS One-Note to take notes and translate to text, save drawings and do presentations. The one thing it doesn't do is support dual monitors. The battery lasts 4+ hours and gives a good advanced warning before shutting off.
Summary: The HP Elitebook 2740p Tablet is the cream of the crop in all the computers HP makes (with the exception of the newer model 2760p). This computer isn't in the line of Elitebooks for no reason. On HP's website, it says Elitebooks have passed 8 military standards tests and are built for the true professional. This is certainly true. The construction of the computer from the screen to the keypad are exquisite. The functionality of this computer is amazing.
Summary: I purchased this computer to be my off-site/client meeting computer because it was described as light weight and because it came with the touch sensitive screen. When I added the additional battery, the weight is not as light as i would have liked, but it is by no means heavy. My one issue with this computer is that it randomly reboots itself without any warning or indication. I am not sure if it is a hardware issue, software issue, or what the problem is.
Summary: My primary uses for this laptop are writing software, editing PDFs, and other personal use. Overall, it is a great laptop, but needs some initial tweaking to run smoothly. Pros: Fast for its size: The 2.67Ghz core i5 is extremely fast for a laptop and 4gb of ram is plenty. Programs open quickly and PDF files are very smooth when using tablet mode. If you don't clog up the laptop with all kinds of gunkware, it will run better than you want it to.
Summary: I bought an HP EliteBook 2740p because of its small size, lightweight form factor and seemingly sturdy finish. My initial impression of it was excellent and I started to use it for most of my Web-surfing and remote access to work via VPN. The built-in HSDPA module also impressed me because no external adapters are needed for 3G access. Unfortunately after about 6 months of use it started to develop problems with its power switch.
