HP Elitebook 2560p Review

 

To call HP's 2560p an “ultraportable” is pushing it. It has a slightly smaller footprint than the Toshiba R830, with a screen size of 12.5 inches, but it's heavier by more than a pound. With its power brick, you're looking at more than five pounds,...

Super-sturdy build; great performance for the size; easy upgrading

Feels heavy; miserly touchpad; no USB 3.0

In performance, the 2560p is solid. It features a 2.6GHz Intel Core i5-2540M to the Toshiba’s 2.7GHz Intel Core i7-2620M, and the two trade benchmarks win within fairly close proximity, save Premiere Pro, where the HP was 21 percent faster than the...

Review HP EliteBook 2560p LG666EA Subnotebook

 

Dark Room. The smallest EliteBook feels quite heavy in the suitcase with a weight of 2 kgs. Still, it manages to deal with everyday tasks without a problem. To find out why the mobility suffers, despite the matt display and 6 hours run time, take a...

HP EliteBook 2560p Review

 

The HP EliteBook 2560p is what HP calls its pint-sized powerhouse. This business laptop is billed as a travel companion with great build quality, a slim form factor, and a weight of just 3.6 pounds. Is this notebook really a pint-sized powerhouse? Read...

Amazing build quality (HP DuraCase/DuraFinish) ; Almost 8 hours of battery life ; Good performance ; Great deal of business features

No USB 3.0 ; Can "feel" audio playing on palmrests ; Expensive as configured

The HP EliteBook 2560p is a good choice for business professionals on the go. The second-generation Intel Core i5-2410M dual-core processor and 4GB of system memory makes multi-tasking a breeze and users will be able to do any amount of work tasks with...

HP EliteBook 2560p Review

 

HP once again delivers an impressive business notebook that would be a great addition to any road warrior's arsenal. The $1,199 HP EliteBook 2560p combines attractive looks and durability along with strong performance and extended battery life. The...

Attractive ruggedized design, Fast Core i5 processor, Long battery life, Robust security software, Runs cool

Bit heavy for 12.5-inch notebook, Uncomfortable pointing stick, Keyboard not backlit, Lacks USB 3.0

HP Elitebook 2560p

 

If there's one thing a business ultraportable is known for, it's that battery options usually come in flavors of two—big and really big. The 2560p ships with a standard 62WH battery, which lasted 7 hours 40 minutes in MobileMark 2007 tests. With a...

Sleek silver design. DVD burner built-in. Dual pointing devices. Very good battery life. eSATA equipped. Extensive security and wireless feature set. Powerful Intel Core i5 processor

Pointing stick is stiff. Lacks USB 3.0 technology

The HP Elitebook 2560p is one of the most complete business ultraportables, as it's packed with essential features and plenty of horsepower.

Best laptop for business

 

When it comes to business, critics say no notebook surpasses the HP EliteBook 2560p (*Est. $1,100 and up), although the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 (*Est. $1,300 and up) comes close. The laptop is designed to be useful for enterprise users on the run: the...

Lightweight, excellent performance for its class, dVD burner, meets MIL-SPEC 810G durability standards

Unimpressive pointing stick, no USB 3.0 ports

HP EliteBook 2560p

 

The nice thing about top-of-line notebooks is that they usually leave you wanting for little—or nothing. HP's new ultraportable EliteBook 2560p, which replaces last year's 2540p, is no exception. It's well built and offers a ton of features and...

Loaded with business features ; Strong productivity and graphics performance ; Reasonably priced

No USB 3.0 support ; Short battery life

HP offers up strong performance with all the productivity and security features business users need, but the lack of USB 3.0 support and the short battery life should give you pause.

This HP laptop weighs only 3.68 pounds, making it ultra portable

This business laptop does not feature an HDMI port or Blu-ray capabilities

The HP EliteBook 2560p is an outstanding business laptop that provides the tools, size and customer service to make it an excellent travel companion.

HP Elitebook 2560p

 

The HP Elitebook 2560p is incredibly fast and full-featured for a pint-sized business laptop. It boasts a speedy Core i5 processor and multiple battery options that can yield up to 9 hours on the road. Add to that a modern look, thanks to a new...

HP EliteBook 2560p (QA086PA) business laptop

 

A 12.5in business laptop with good speed and features, but still a little underdone

Small ; Good performance and features ; Strong build quality

3G not standard ; SSD not standard ; Feels heavy

This small business laptop has a lot of features for its size, and it supplies good performance via its full-voltage Intel Core i5 CPU. It could use some more standard features though, such as SSD, integrated 3G and USB 3.0, but it's still a good...
