HP EliteBook tablet possibly slated for spring refresh

HP EliteBook 2740p could ship in spring

HP may finally have an update for its older EliteBook tablet in store, as an inadvertent post by Michigan's Mercy High School has potentially spoiled the PC builder's plans. The unisex school is planning a computer bundle that will give students an EliteBook 2740p tablet despite knowing the system won't ship until spring. Other than confirming that it will remain a pro notebook, the EliteBook doesn't get additional hardware details.

Logical speculation would point to it sharing some roots with the home-oriented TouchSmart tm2, such as its use of Intel's CULV processors and multi-touch. Assuming it remains a 12-inch convertible design, it's unlikely to use mobile Core i3 or i5 processors in order to keep the heat and prices low.

Any official unveiling remains a mystery but may come before the spring. [via HP Fansite]
