HP isn’t pulling any punches with EliteBook 2740p. Targeted at wealthy businessmen and high-end loving executives, it is designed to meet the highest workspace standards.

- Up to 8 GB DDR3
- Intel HD Onboard IGP
- 320 GB HDD or 160 GB SSD
- 12.1” Screen w/ 1280×800 Resolution

It is indeed a very nice convertible tablet/ultrathin. And to make up for that, it comes at a $1599 starting price. It is worth a look, and surely if you can afford it I must imagine it will serve you quite well. The rest of us will have to survive without it.
Running an ARM11 processor, the CZC C9 has an 8.9″ display with a standard 1024 x 600 resolution. It has 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, USB ports and VGA.
Nicely enough, the machine can run for 9 hours on a single charge. Some of the credit for that may go to ShenZhen Zichuang Technology’s customized Linux OS, trimming some fat from the system. For a mere $220, this Spartan netbook might just hold the interest of some cost cutters out there.
