HP Centrino 2 EliteBook

Bolstering the Intel Centrino 2 launch, HP on Tuesday said it was shipping new Centrino 2-versions of its recently debuted business notebooks. The new notebooks feature the Centrino 2 platform's 802.11n networking, longer battery life, better performance, a faster 1,066MHz system bus, DDR3 memory support, and new vPro features for advanced IT management. In early June, the company launched its durable, aircraft-inspired HP EliteBook Notebook PC as one of 10 newly designed business notebook lineup. As HP's first rugged notebook, the EliteBook is designed to survive both cosmetic and internal damage with anodized aluminum on the palm rest, an external scratch-resistant shell, a magnesium honeycomb cage, and an anti-twist 14-inch display along with a shock-resistant hard drive and spill-proof keyboard -- all of which help meet US military-grade 810F levels for survivability in extreme temperatures as well as vibrations and very damp environments.

HP is also shipping Centrino 2 versions of its s-series notebooks that feature advanced security, including HP ProtectTools Security Manager with Drive Encryption, a File Sanitizer application, and HP 3D DriveGuard to help protect data on the drive.

The company says it is also shipping Centrino 2 models of its HP Compaq 6530s and HP Compaq 6535s, its entry-level, mainstream 14.1-inch notebooks and its HP Compaq 6730s and HP Compaq 6735s, its 15.4-inch business offering. The company is also expected to ship an updated HP Compaq 6830s, featuring a 17-inch diagonal widescreen display, an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3410 with 128/256 MB of GDDR2 for video memory, and ATI HyperMemory.
