HP EliteBook 2570p Review


This 12-inch business laptop isn't the newest or sexiest Windows PC, but the 2570p is mighty appealing to IT pros looking for a relatively rugged solution for employees.

Extremely durable ; Nice keyboard ; Excellent battery life ; Great speakers

Thick and heavy compared to Ultrabooks ; Small touchpad ; Good, but not great performance

As we said at the beginning of our review, the HP EliteBook 2570p isn’t the newest or sexiest Windows PC, but it is an extremely appealing notebook for enterprise businesses with a large mobile workforce.

HP EliteBook 2570p Review


Upon first glance, you might think that the EliteBook 2570p came straight out of 2002, and while first opening it up to get a look at it, I thought I had mysteriously jumped through a time warp that took me back ten years and didn't even know it....

In the end, the EliteBook 2570p is a sturdy, well-built laptop that screams professionalism, and can prove itself out in the field. The Core i5 keeps the laptop humming along nicely, and while the integrated graphics aren’t anything too special, they...

HP EliteBook 2570p Review and Ratings


HP's EliteBook 2570p is a solid ultraportable for business professionals, offering decent battery life and flexible expansion. However, its lackluster display quality may turn off some travelers.

Highly expandable ; Flexible battery options ; Great typing feel ; Mobile broadband add-on

Mediocre display quality ; Small touch pad and wonky keyboard layout ; Pricey in BTO configurations

Battery life is right in the middle of the five systems compared. Still, over six hours in our strenuous video-playback rundown is pretty good for a small system like this:

Review: HP EliteBook 2570p


HP 2570p notebook aims to please business travelers

Solid construction ; Metal lid and chassis top ; Multitude of ports ; Decent performance

Thick ; Tiny trackpad ; Premium price

HP's EliteBook 2570p is the latest notebook in what the company describes as its business rugged category. The 12.5-inch model is designed to hold up to the moderate abuse while on the go, taking advantage of aluminum and magnesium to protect against

HP EliteBook 2570p


Although chunky, the impressive performance and flexibility of this 12.5-inch laptop would make the hardened business road warrior happy.

Fully featured business laptop ; Screen can be flipped to lie flat, parallel with body ; 3G capability ; Good battery life

Features necessitate a chunky design

The EliteBook 2570p may be chunky, but with good reason — the business market it's aimed at requires all the ports it can get, and a certain level of ruggedness. Add to this the impressive performance of the 12.5-inch laptop, and you have a laptop that...

Pretty good for a refurb! Worth the money!


-Would I recommend it? Yes, unless you're a real stickler on cosmetics and expect "Mint / New" condition. -Would I purchase it again? YES. The value here is GREAT. Better than I expected for a refurbished laptop, really. -Is there something I could...

Exactly as described. Had a 240 GB Intel SSD, 8 GB (4GB x 2) of genuine Samsung RAM, Sysprep'd fresh install of the OS with all the correct drivers, and in pretty good shape! Battery works and came with what looked like a new power supply. Still has...

Very little to complain about. They use textured stickers to cover any cosmetic damages (Scratches, general wear, etc) that aren't a 100% match for the original finish, but they're pretty good. If you don't look pretty close, they're fairly easy to...
